Bold and the Beautiful spoilers left us hanging on Sally Spectra‘s (Courtney Hope) fate when the last of new episodes ended, so what’s next for her? There are several things Sally could do to save her bacon in this situation – but which way will it go on the CBS soap? Take a look at these soap opera spoilers.
Bold and the Beautiful: Sally Spectra Death Plot Never Intended as Fake
If this B&B plot for Sally Spectra seems disjointed, that’s because it is. In fact, an inside source at the CBS sudser leaked that they originally wrote Sally genuinely dying. They’d plan for her to suffer a tragic illness and ultimately die. Then, they changed course.
It seems the Bold and the Beautiful showrunner noted the backlash and decided to save Sally Spectra and go another way. Unfortunately, that other way was to use the spunky redhead as a tool to try and redeem Felony Flo Fulton (Katrina Bowden).
Initially, they didn’t mention Sally Spectra’s disease on Bold and the Beautiful because they wanted to avoid analysis of real-world illness. However, that set the stage for them to later twist the plot into this faked death scam that seems as wrong to fans as Sally dying.
B&B Spoilers: Flo Deserves Whatever She Gets, Right?
As things left it on Bold and the Beautiful, Flo’s conked out at the hands of Sally Spectra’s doctor. Remember, she was calling Wyatt Spencer (Darin Brooks) to tell him the truth about the scam. So, Penny Escobar (Monica Ruiz) thumped her in the head.
The frustrating thing on Bold and the Beautiful was how Flo dismissed her past lies. When Sally Spectra called her out on lying, stealing a baby, and ruining lives, Flo quipped this was about Sally, not her. The writers may think that – – but fans clearly do not.
No matter how they write this Sally Spectra illness scam on Bold and the Beautiful, it doesn’t change the past. Sally lying doesn’t clean up Flo one bit, in the eyes of fans. So, is this all a wasted effort – or can the writers clean up this new and even bigger mess they’ve made?

Sally Has Options on Bold and the Beautiful
The first route they can go on B&B is to give Flo amnesia, so she forgets what she found out, which is a very soapy thing to do. But, even better, Dr. Escobar could fake some test results and records. Then, if Flo blabs, Sally and Penny can say she’s the liar and show “proof.”
Then, on Bold and the Beautiful, they could double down on the plot. They could fake treatments and “cure” Sally Spectra. After all, no one’s allowed access to her medical info. So, they can bluff through and make Flo look like a jealous nutcase. That could be a lot of fun.
But, Bold and the Beautiful usually wimps out just when things could turn interesting. In the end, they’ll probably just write a lame scene where Sally Spectra confesses to Wyatt. She’ll say sorry and faces the consequences –even though Flo’s never faced any for her felonies.
What do you want to happen with Sally Spectra? Let’s hope she smartly moves on from Wyatt, shoves Flo aside, and finds real love that can last. Everyone knows Spencer men are ping pong wafflers. So, losing Wyatt might be the best thing for her in the end, anyway.
