The fallout from her death is still ongoing but what happened to Caroline Spencer on Bold and the Beautiful exactly? Her death was sudden and, at first, there seemed to be little information. Now Caroline (Linsey Godfrey) seems to be name dropped daily as her baby daddy Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) is using her memory to manipulate his way into a romance. His sketchy behavior continues this week as he uses Caroline’s death as an excuse to try and take another man’s wife on the CBS sudser.
Caroline Spencer’s Death – A Tool for Thomas Forrester To Use
Since coming back to Bold and the Beautiful, Thomas turned from sad into an epic schemer. He’s also telling lies that he’s attributing to Caroline Spencer. Just this week alone, he’s told Hope Logan (Annika Noelle) several whoppers. On Monday, he told her that it was Caroline’s wish that if something happened to her, she wanted Hope to help raise Douglas Forrester (Henry Joseph Samiri).
Hope questioned this for just a moment on B&B. First, why would this young healthy woman be picking out another woman to raise her child? Second, why would it be someone outside the family? Caroline Spencer’s mom Karen Spencer is young and healthy enough to participate in raising him and was already close to Douglas. This lie was nonsense.

Bold and the Beautiful: Story Changed About Caroline’s Death and Wishes
Also when Thomas first came back on B&B, he told Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) and Wyatt Spencer (Darin Brooks) that Caroline Spencer wanted them to be Douglas’ godparents. That sounds like something Caroline might really have said. Thomas also told Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) that she forgave his lie about her having a terminal illness. That also sounds like her.
But then a month later, Thomas Forrester was working hard to betray Liam Spencer by stealing Hope Logan from him. Surely, that was nothing that Caroline wanted for her son and his father. Thomas seems to be willing to betray Caroline’s memory at the drop of a hat on Bold and the Beautiful to get what he wants.
Thomas tells Hope: “One day soon, when you’re ready, I hope to put this ring on your finger.”

So What Went On With Caroline Spencer on B&B?
B&B dropped Linsey Godfrey back to recurring. That meant an exit story. Back then, Bill told a fib about Caroline dying to get Thomas to run off and leave town with her. That was all part of Bill’s plot to wreck Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope). The lie eventually came out but by then it was too late. So that’s why Bill felt guilty when she really did die.
It was also not clear why Bold and the Beautiful felt the need to abruptly kill off a legacy family character. Many fans raged when they killed off Caroline Spencer. As to how Caroline died, details are minimal. Thomas told the rest of the family that he and Douglas were not with Caroline when she passed away. It was a blood clot in her brain and was sudden. She just died out of the blue.
That all seemed to happen strictly to set up Thomas’ return and allow him to manipulate Hope Logan through his grief. So now, there will never be a Caroline Spencer again on the CBS soap since that’s not the kind of death you come back from. Plus, Bold is not one of those soaps that routinely resurrects people from the dead.
