Bold and the Beautiful might be embarking Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) on a twisted Hope Logan (Annika Noelle) plot — involving a doll. In a recent interview with B&B head honcho Brad Bell, he leaked some exciting information about an upcoming story on the CBS soap.
Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: Thomas Forrester Seems Sane – But is he?
Remember, before Thomas Forrester left town, he was off his rocker on B&B. He gaslighted his son, Douglas Forrester (Henry Joseph Samiri), with ghosts and other weirdness. Plus, Thomas falsely romanced Zoe Buckingham (Kiara Barnes) all the way to the altar.
Bold and the Beautiful history reminds these were all tools to help him steal Hope Logan from Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton). In the end, Thomas thought for just a second that he’d won Hope. Remember, Hope Logan showed up at the wedding in the dress he’d designed for her.
But, Bold and the Beautiful then revealed Hope conspired with Zoe to unmask Thomas Forrester’s schemes. Next, knowing he’d lost Hope, he ran off and wasn’t seen for months. Now, he’s back in LA and seems just fine. But, maybe he’s still nutty as a fruitcake on the CBS sudser.
B&B Spoilers: Showrunner Promises Doll as Featured Character
In perhaps a related spoiler, Bold and the Beautiful showrunner Brad Bell talked to BBC this week and promised they would lean in with using dolls on the show. Brad insisted the dolls have been a hit with the press. However, fan comments have been less enthusiastic.
Nevertheless, the Bold and the Beautiful head writer said they wrote a plot with a doll “as a character, not just a stand-in.” Then, he said it’s something they’d not done before. But if a mannequin is a character on B&B, who is crazy enough to talk to it?
Aside from lemon bar-baking Pam, the only person that springs to mind is Thomas Forrester. He’s nuts enough to convincingly dialog with a doll that looks like Hope Logan, his obsession. If you’ve seen the movie Lars and the Real Girl, you could imagine exactly how it could go.
Does Thomas Have a Hope “Doll” on Bold and the Beautiful?
Spoilers hint the reason Thomas Forrester seems sane is he’s in a happy new relationship – with a faux Hope Logan. Of course, Thomas said he’d spent time away soul searching and getting his act together. But maybe that’s not what Thomas did at all. Perhaps he leaned into his fixation on Hope.
Remember, Thomas is filthy rich on Bold and the Beautiful. So, maybe he took a picture of Hope Logan to an upscale “real doll” designer and had them make a realistic Hope look-alike. Now, Thomas Forrester might be pretending to be in a relationship with Hope-2 using this doll.
So, that might explain why he seems normal but is not. On Bold and the Beautiful the other day, Hope Logan remarked that she, Thomas, and Liam get along well as co-parents. Perhaps that’s because Thomas is in a “relationship” with Hope Logan 2.0.
If anyone on Bold and the Beautiful can pull off having a functional relationship with a mannequin, it’s Thomas Forrester. Recall, he played bat-crap-crazy like a pro last year on the CBS soap. So, he’s our top choice for this upcoming twisted doll plot. Wait and see.
