‘Bold and the Beautiful’ Spoilers: Thomas Uses Flo, Xander, Zoe to Help Him Win Hope

Bold and the Beautiful spoilers reveal Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) takes seriously drastic steps on Friday to keep everyone in line on the baby secret. He wants to ensure Hope Logan (Annika Noelle) doesn’t find out that her daughter is alive. This particularly stuns Xander Avant (Adain Bradley) who was pleased the truth was going to come out thanks to Thomas. But, of course, he didn’t blab and now pledges to punish anyone that does. So now, there’s a new ringleader in this baby swap plot, so everyone better watch out on the CBS soap.

Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: Thomas Forrester Decides to Leverage the Secret

B&B fans know that Thomas Forrester is desperate. He will do anything to get another chance with Hope. Now that Flo Fulton (Katrina Bowden) told him Beth is alive, he will spiral out of control, rationalizing his actions. Hope annulled Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) in the best interests of the children. Now, Thomas convinces himself to keep quiet for the same reason. He’s certain that his being with Hope is the best thing for everyone.

So, when he makes a move to keep this under control and bend the co-conspirators to his will, Thomas feels justified. Now, Bold and the Beautiful spoilers say he’ll threaten Zoe Buckingham (Kiara Barnes), Flo, and Xander that they’d better keep their mouths shut or else. He can threaten Zoe and Xander’s jobs at Forrester Creations. For Flo the threat will likely center on losing Wyatt Spencer (Darin Brooks).

B&B Spoilers: Flo Stands to Lose the Most – Will She Let Thomas Push Her Around?

Not only could Flo lose her job, but she could also lose the family she found. And also her relationship with Wyatt. Next week, Bold and the Beautiful spoilers have Wyatt and Flo spending time with Phoebeth and she feels guiltier than ever. But she’ll remember the threats from Thomas. Wyatt would never accept Flo for making Hope and his brother Liam Spencer suffer as they have over the past few months.

Thomas knows all of this and B&B fans can bet that he will use these threats to his advantage to keep the group quiet for as long as he can. But will he take things a step further? His end game is to get his ring back on Hope Logan’s finger. With all three working closely with Hope, and Flo being her family, they could be very useful to Thomas while he romances Hope. They can put in a good word for him and help move things along.

Bold and the Beautiful: Thomas Keeps Secret To Pursue Hope Logan And Protect Steffy

B&B spoilers know that what is utmost in Thomas’ twisted mind is locking Hope Logan into his life as a wife to him and mom to Douglas Forrester (Henry Joseph Samiri). So, he’ll do whatever he must to make sure his goals are met – and people have already seen that happen. But Thomas Forrester has another motive. He knows his sister Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) will be crushed. Giving Beth back to Hope destroys her, as far as he can see.

So, there are plenty of reasons on Bold and the Beautiful for him to push Flo, Xander, and Zoe to stay quiet about the baby swap. This buys him time to get closer to Hope Logan. If he can make her Mrs Forrester while Steffy and Liam reignite, then the secret coming out later might not mess up his game plan. Watch to see how Thomas Forrester threatens the baby stealing co-conspirators to get what he wants on the CBS sudser.
