‘Bold And The Beautiful’ Spoilers: Hope Justifies Turning to Thomas – Frees Liam for Steffy?

The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers hint at a couple flip ahead for Hope Logan (Annika Noelle) and Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) that centers on Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson). While Hope is no cheater, she’s also not in her right mind. This situation with a grieving child could have her act out of character then rationalize it – with the help of a respected psychiatrist. Here’s a look at what may be coming for these characters on the CBS soap.

Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: Hope Logan Tempted by Thomas Forrester

For so long on B&B, Hope’s sole focus was on loving Liam Spencer. But losing baby Beth Spencer broke her. Now, she wants Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) to take back Liam so they can raise the little girls together. But Steffy took off to Paris and Liam’s saying “no thanks” to her suggestions. So, Hope could find a way to shove Liam out of their marriage, if she’s crazy enough to do it.

Thomas Forrester is handsome, but the most attractive thing about him is his adorable son. Bold and the Beautiful spoilers have shown she and Douglas Forrester (Henry Joseph Samiri) bond closely and this continues in coming weeks. Given that Hope Logan wants to sacrifice her marriage to benefit Steffy’s children, she may double down on Bold and the Beautiful. If she thinks splitting with Liam will help Steffy’s kids and also Douglas, then why not?

B&B Spoilers: Taylor Hayes Encourages Hope to Dump Liam?

Already on Bold and the Beautiful, Taylor Hayes (Hunter Tylo) planted seeds with Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye). She suggested that Hope needs a child and Douglas needs a mother and gave a nudge. Sure, Ridge wants Steffy to have a happy family, but he’s not going to jump on the bandwagon of getting Hope Logan to leave Liam Spencer. His wife would not like that at all.

But it’s doubtful that will stop Taylor. B&B spoilers hint that Taylor will go to work soon on both Thomas Forrester and Hope Logan. With her already drawn so quickly to Douglas, it probably wouldn’t take a lot of nudging to get Hope to open her eyes to the possibility of an instant family. Plus, Thomas Forrester made clear he wasn’t romantic with Caroline Spencer (Linsey Godfrey), so Taylor thinks it’s wide open.

Bold and the Beautiful: Hope Considers a Family Swap

Bold and the Beautiful spoilers have shown, that as a psychiatrist, Taylor knows exactly what buttons to push on B&B, to encourage Hope Logan to step in as “forever mommy” to Douglas. Plus, Hope already offered to give up Liam Spencer to Steffy. He didn’t like this and neither did Steffy. They shuddered at the idea of leaving her alone in her grief. But, to her way of thinking, Liam and Steffy might be more open to it if she also moved on.

Thomas is sad and vulnerable and so is Hope on Bold and the Beautiful. It wouldn’t be too much of a leap to get those two to comfort each other then take things further. Taylor could easily manipulate Hope into thinking that she’d be doing the best thing for everyone by swapping over to Thomas Forrester. Since she’s in a fragile state of mind, she could be manipulated. Plus, she wants a child. So it’s not a hard sell.

So, with Steffy gone, Taylor has the time to cook up a scheme to give both her son and daughter a better life. Taylor sees that Hope Logan is a good person and would be a good mother to Douglas, so she can justify her actions as helping everyone involved. Of course, you can bet Hope’s mother will try and shut this down if she sees this percolating. Watch the CBS soap to see it unroll.
