Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers – Week of December 31

Things get serious when a father unintentionally puts his daughter in grave danger next week. On the other hand, a mother is a victim of a ploy for an unscrupulous doctor who recently arrived in town. It also looks like the population is growing on The Bold and the Beautiful. With that said, there may be more than one baby introduced in coming episodes.

Stepsisters at Odds on B&B

Steffy Forrester and Hope Logan had dreams of a blended family. But their relationship continues to circle the drain. It seems Hope Logan doesn’t budge when it comes to Taylor Hayes (Hunter Tylo). Bold and the Beautiful spoilers reveal conflict between the two stepsisters is far from over. This pushes Steffy Forrester to drastically change her life and puts Liam Spencer in a waffling situation once more.

Hope Logan and Steffy Forrester – In the Family Way?

Babies are in the cards as a new year rolls around on Bold and the Beautiful. Hope goes into premature labor. This results in life-altering changes next week for many people in her circle. Hope Logan might not be the only mom welcoming a new daughter into her life. Steffy’s adoption plans turn serious as does Liam’s concerns over his extended (and strange) family.

Liam Spencer wants Kelly Spencer (Zoe Pennington) and his new daughter Beth to enjoy a sister relationship. At the same time, Liam realizes Hope’s demands caused Steffy to consider adoption to give Kelly a sister. Bold and the Beautiful spoilers suggest Liam and Hope navigate their marriage and family around Steffy Forrester and Kelly.

Liam and Steffy spend more time together as he visits with his daughter Kelly. It’s Hope’s demands that push Liam toward Steffy. The roadblocks Hope put in place regarding Taylor puts Liam Spencer in an uncomfortable position between his wife and Steffy.

Bill Spencer Just Won’t Stop

Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) continues his campaign to prove to Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) that he’s a changed man. Surprisingly, Bill does something that offers some proof of this change to his sons. It looks like 2019 offers a chance for Bill to step up to the plate for those around him. The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers indicate Liam turns to his father for help.

With Hope stuck out on Catalina Island in a storm, she goes into premature labor. Liam can’t get to her as the storm stopped all boats out to the island. Bill arranges transportation for Liam, Brooke, Ridge, and himself to get to Hope. Liam is frantically counting the minutes as they make their way to his wife.

Brooke Logan and Ridge Forrester – Katie and Thorne

Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) realizes his obsession with Bill interfered with his marriage. He makes Brooke a promise as the Bold and the Beautiful calendar turns to 2019. But Brooke and Ridge remain polarized over Taylor and they disagree on the effect she’ll have on Steffy, Hope, and the stepsisters’ daughters.

It looks like Thorne Forrester (Ingo Rademacher) softens when it comes to Bill. But he’ll still keep an eye on his wife’s ex-husband. Thorne now believes Bill should be in Will Spencer’s (Finnegan George) life. But he won’t stop watching out for Will’s safety. Bold and the Beautiful spoilers suggest Katie Logan (Heather Tom) gets a respite from the friction between her husband and Bill.

This is bound to make life easier for Katie, who only ever wanted her son and his father to strengthen their relationship. With Ingo Rademacher taking his leave from the soap, this storyline is up in the air. While he’s not closing the door on B&B for good, Thorne’s absence will require an on-screen explanation.

Taylor Hayes and Reese Buckingham

Reese Buckingham (Wayne Brady) owes $200,000 to some unscrupulous people. A mystery man has tracked him down in LA looking for that money. Reese was put on notice that his loan is past-due and this guy looked serious.

Bold and the Beautiful spoilers say that as Reese dodges this guy, the mystery man targets Zoe Buckingham (Kiara Barnes) for the money. It looks like Reese puts Zoe in danger. While she’s a Forrester Creations model, she certainly hasn’t accrued the big bucks her father needs to get him out of trouble.

Taylor Latest Victim?

It looks like Reese has set his sights on Taylor for her money. Reese is in hot pursuit of Taylor and it looks as if she’s smitten with the doctor. One thing Taylor doesn’t need is more heartache in her life. Her stability is questionable as it is. If Reese betrays Taylor’s trust, this could send her over the edge.

But given his track record, according to Zoe, her dad is a user. If he can shake the 200k out of Taylor, no doubt he will. But does the unstable doc have that kind of money lying around? Her practice is in shambles and she’s living with Steffy, so she might not be the easy mark that Reese needs right now. Tune into CBS weekdays to see what happens with these B&B spoilers for the week of December 31.
