‘Bold and the Beautiful’: Thomas Raised by Schemers – No Wonder He’s Tricking Hope

Bold and the Beautiful spoilers remind Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) came by his scamming tendencies genetically. Next week, Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) cautions Thomas about trying to split a marriage. Thomas is full-blown obsessed with getting Hope Logan (Annika Noelle) to leave Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton). But does Ridge have any room to talk about scheming? Here’s a look at the gene pool that spawned Thomas and what’s next on B&B on CBS.

Bold and the Beautiful: Taylor Hayes Sees Eye to Eye With Thomas Forrester

One parent that has no issue with Thomas Forrester scheming to steal Liam’s wife is Taylor Hayes (Hunter Tylo). It was already on her mind on B&B that Thomas should get with Hope Logan and leave Liam for Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood). She told Ridge that before she jetted to Paris with Steffy. So, it’s clear where she stands. And history shows she is a master schemer.

In the past, Taylor and Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) engaged in extreme shenanigans in their war to win Ridge Forrester. He bounced back and forth between them. Usually, Taylor took more of the high road, but a few times found herself down in the muck on Bold and the Beautiful. So, she lost Ridge for good and Taylor Hayes would rather see Thomas scheme and win than lose out.

B&B Ridge Forrester Know How to Play Dirty

As for Ridge, he’s definitely known to get his hands dirty when it came to rival Bill Spencer (Don Diamont). Those two were at war for years sometimes about Brooke and other times about business. Bill might be the more dangerous since he had Ridge Forrester dumped out of a helicopter. Then again, Ridge paid that back by throwing Bill Spencer off his balcony on Bold and the Beautiful.

In addition to battling over Brooke, things got really nasty when Ridge was with Caroline Spencer (Linsey Godfrey). Neither man is known for taking the high road and both plotted against the other and did unspeakably awful things to try and win Brooke away from the other. Then when Ridge was with Caroline, the dirty schemes continued on B&B. So, Ridge has no room to talk, right?

Thomas Gets Schooled By Ridge – Will He Listen?

The actor who plays Thomas on B&B has his scheming face down to a tee. Whether he’s lurking outside a door or peeking in a window, he looks shady as heck. We saw that again this week when he wrote a letter that was supposed to be from Caroline so he could give it to Hope Logan. This is exactly the kind of move that either Ridge Forrester or Taylor Hayes might have pulled.

That letter worked better than Thomas Forrester expected on Bold and the Beautiful. It stopped Hope in her tracks and really made her think twice about Thomas Forrester’s offer. It hit even closer to home when Douglas Forrester (Henry Joseph Samiri) had a perfectly timed nightmare so she could comfort him. Clearly, Hope saw a little boy that needs a mom. She’s right there and could be his mother.

Next week, Ridge Forrester cautions Thomas Forrester about his scheming to steal Hope. But do Ridge or Taylor Hayes have a leg to stand on? Both are master schemers. They set the example for Thomas while he was growing up. Is he a plotter or just a product of his environment on the CBS soap?
