‘Bold and the Beautiful’ Spoilers: Douglas Needs a New Daddy – Will It Be Liam?

Bold and the Beautiful spoilers predict Douglas Forrester (Henry Joseph Samiri) may be pretty much an orphan soon. His dad Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) has to pay the piper. That means jail or a mental institution. If Douglas needs a new dad, will it be Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) that steps up? Or will B&B just send Douglas away with his crazy dad, never to be seen again? Redeeming Thomas seems like a long shot and that puts Douglas’ fate up in the air. Here’s a look at what the CBS soap could do with the innocent little boy.

Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: Thomas Forrester Can’t Keep Douglas Forrester, Right?

It would seem ludicrous for the soap to leave Douglas Forrester with his creepy, lying, drugging, assaulting, perverted dad. B&B spoilers show Thomas Forrester assaults Liam Spencer next week and tries to basically kidnap Hope Logan (Annika Noelle). His list of crimes and misdemeanors is pretty lengthy at this point. Whether the cops find him criminal or crazy, it seems like Thomas might be getting a legal “time out” of some sort.

Detective Sanchez (Jeremy Ray Valdez) is back August 19. That means an investigation. There are lots of crimes to be sorted from baby stealing and selling to fraud and vehicular homicide. Even if Liam never finds out Thomas Forrester drugged him, there’s still video evidence tying Thomas to Emma Barber’s (Nia Sioux) death. So, that may be part of the LAPD’s investigation tease Bold and the Beautiful spoilers. So, Douglas could lose his dad.

B&B Spoilers: Hope Logan Legal Rights to Douglas Forrester?

Right now, all the Bold and the Beautiful spoilers point to Hope’s annulment with Liam Spencer being invalid. There was a clause about them not having any kids which they thought was true back then. So, technically that annulment could be scrapped making her marriage to Thomas invalid. But she went into the marriage with good faith and intended to wed him, so she might leave it standing legally – to protect Douglas Forrester.

Remember, Hope Logan still believes that forged letter from Caroline was a sign she should be Douglas’ mother. And she loves that little boy. If she stays married to Thomas Forrester, she’d have custody of Douglas. Even after authorities jail or put Thomas in the psych ward. That’s something to consider although Liam Spencer hates the idea she married the villain, remind Bold and the Beautiful spoilers.

Bold and the Beautiful: Liam Spencer Loves Being a Dad – And He’s Related to Douglas

It seems likely that Liam Spencer and Hope will reunite after the baby Beth reveal, tease B&B spoilers. So, that would put him in a strange position with Douglas Forrester. If Hope winds up with the boy, Liam would be his sort-of step-father. But also, Liam Spencer’s related to Douglas through his mama Caroline Spencer (Linsey Godfrey). So, there’s a case to be made for keeping him with Liam and Hope.

Thomas Forrester despises Liam Spencer but still obsessively loves Hope Logan. Bold and the Beautiful spoilers hint him signing custody of Douglas Forrester to Hope might happen. That would leave Hope raising his son – likely with Liam Spencer. Then, Liam would come out of this baby mama drama with three kids – Kelly, Beth, and Douglas Forrester. At least Douglas wouldn’t have a scoundrel for a dad if it worked out that way.

Grandpa Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) could take the kid. Or Aunt Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) could raise him. With terrible Thomas out of the picture, Douglas has loads of family still. Then again, B&B might bring back Taylor Hayes (Hunter Tylo) to scoop up her grandson and take him away. Wait to see the fate of Douglas Forrester in all this – and the poor kid’s already lost so much, so this is sad.
