The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers remind that Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) has always had a dark side. Now, he’s set his sights on Hope Logan (Annika Noelle). As a child, he always seemed just a bit “off” and out of sorts with other children. His only friend growing up was the son of Forrester’s chief rival CJ Garrison (Mick Cain). He and Thomas were as close as Thomas ever got to anyone.
Plus, Thomas never had it easy growing up. He watched his father Ridge bounce back and forth between his mother Taylor Forrester (Hunter Tylo) and her rival Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang). So, Thomas grew resentful. Newer B&B viewers won’t know just how disturbed he can be and the lengths he’ll go to when he’s jealous or angry. Here’s a quick look at how scary he can be on the CBS soap.
Bold and the Beautiful: Thomas Forrester Went Psycho – Blew Up Rick’s Car
Back in the day on B&B, after Rick Forrester (Jacob Young) was born, everyone doted on him and Brooke. This included his dad, Ridge. Meanwhile, Thomas, Taylor, and his sisters were pushed aside. Back then, he confronted Rick. He let him know that he couldn’t just go around taking everything he wanted. Rick didn’t understand what Thomas was talking about, but the bad blood was brewing. They bickered over Caitlin for starters.
History reminds that Thomas went off the deep end after Steffy’s twin Phoebe died in a car accident while Rick was driving. Thomas wound up setting Rick’s house on fire – and bombing his car. That goes way beyond a little half-sibling rivalry. Thomas claimed he was trying to scare Rick, not kill him. After this incident, he was sent to Europe for psychological treatment with James Warwick (Ian Buchanan). Now, he’s acting nutty again on Bold and the Beautiful.

B&B Spoilers: Sent for Psych Treatment – But Is He Still Crazy?
So, Bold and the Beautiful viewers didn’t see Thomas again until he came home in 2010. On that return, he developed an obsession with Brooke. Yes – Hope Logan’s mom!! So, Brooke knows first-hand how “intense” that Thomas can be. On request from grandma Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery), he lied and said he and Brooke slept together during a hallucinogenic berry incident after a crash on a deserted island.
After this, he developed his initial obsession with Hope. At the time, she chose Liam and it crushed him. The next issue was another Rick rivalry over Caroline Spencer (Linsey Godfrey). Thomas Forrester scored the first date, but they lacked chemistry, so she chose Rick on Bold and the Beautiful. But when they faltered, Thomas swooped in and made another play. He almost had her, but then Rick stole her away again.
Bold and the Beautiful Reminder: The Guy is Nuts (Sometimes)
Even after Thomas lost Caroline on B&B, he got another shot with her. But she was with his dad back then. After a terrible divorce from Rick, she fell for Ridge. Thomas hated that and was always lurking shirtless to tempt her. When the couple had a massive argument, Thomas Forrester bedded a drunken and (unbeknownst to him, drugged) Caroline. That’s how Douglas was sired.
That led to another mess on Bold and the Beautiful. But when he settled in with Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope), he seemed sane. Dollar Bill screwed that up. Thomas took off with Caroline and after her death, is back to terrible Thomas of the past. Now, he has turned his evil tactics on to Hope Logan. So, this new promo showing he may kill is no surprise given his past psychosis. So, keep an eye on the CBS soap to see the extremes Thomas Forrester goes to next.
