“The Bold and the Beautiful” (B&B) spoilers tease that Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) and Caroline’s (Linsey Godfrey) secret is on the verge of being exposed on this week’s and next week’s epsiodes. Katie (Heather Tom) knows the truth and the news will spread at some point.
As we inch closer to that big reveal, we can’t help but notice the dark shift in Ridge’s character.
It takes a certain kind of man to keep a child’s paternity a secret. Ridge was happy to shove Thomas (Pierson Fode) out of the picture. He doesn’t care whether Thomas would want to be there for his son or not. Grandpa Ridge is going to raise Douglas and that’s all there is to it.
However, Ridge plunged into even darker territory when Dr. Wolin (Mark Damon Espinoza) was hit by that truck. Ridge grinned in the distance like someone just gave him a gift basket. Seriously, it was like Pam (Alley Mills) walked around the corner with lemon bars.
Granted, Dr. Wolin wasn’t a good guy. He was blackmailing Ridge and threatening to destroy his family. Still, it was a little extreme for Ridge to take that much pleasure in someone’s demise. It almost makes you wonder just how dark Ridge is going to get in the coming weeks.
Once the truth is revealed, Thomas will undoubtedly want to play a role in Douglas’ life. If Ridge tries to fight him on that, Thomas might take him to court. Caroline may not even recognize Ridge when this is over. “The Bold and the Beautiful” fans can tell that trouble is brewing.
From the very beginning, the whole paternity cover-up has always seemed partly about Ridge’s pride. This is 2016. People have all kinds of families and they obviously could have worked out some form of shared custody. Ridge, Caroline and Thomas live on the same property now. It wouldn’t have been too difficult to reach an agreement.
Instead, Ridge insisted on doing things his way and now he’s stuck with a ticking time bomb. After everything finally explodes, Ridge should explode as well. Will that intense rage drive Caroline away? Ridge could sink deeper into this villainous attitude if he loses both Caroline and Douglas.
Meanwhile, Caroline might cozy up to her “baby daddy.” Ridge could really go wild if he has to watch Thomas take the family he once had. He could practically become the new Rick (Jacob Young)!
We definitely have some exciting scenes coming up. B&B viewers will be anxious to see how everything plays out. Stick with the CBS soap for updates on the road ahead for Ridge.
