The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers tease that Bill’s (Don Diamont) shooter will be revealed in the near future. In the meantime, logic allows the elimination of some characters from suspicion. Okay, let’s assume that the people who’ve said they didn’t do it are telling the truth. This process isn’t meant to be full-proof and isn’t shown in the order that denials happened, or presumed innocence was assessed, but will allow a winnowing toward a more likely suspect list.
Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) asked Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) if he shot Bill. He denied it, but said he would like to shake the hand of the person who did. In all likelihood, Ridge is telling the truth.
Liam (Scott Clifton) didn’t arrive on time at Steffy’s (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) for dinner. While his absence matched the time of his father’s shooting, Liam’s later pledge to his dad (that he would get whoever shot him) removes Clifton’s character from suspicion.
It’s surely obvious that Steffy didn’t pull the trigger. Yes, she rejected Bill’s marriage offer. But she doesn’t hate him and was prepping dinner for the man she actually loves when the crime was committed.
Katie (Heather Tom), who found Bill and obviously didn’t shoot him, asked Wyatt (Darin Brooks) if he pulled the trigger. He was likely passed out during the shooting, but could have somehow staggered from Katie’s to his dad’s house, where he would have been able to gain entrance into the house via a key, shot his dad and then returned to Katie’s living room, where he woke up the next morning.
Does Wyatt’s behavior, odd reaction to the plethora of voice mail messages left on his phone and strange behavior at the hospital, both in the hallway and when he was in with Bill make him a prime suspect in a crime he may not remember committing? Probably not because of what he later asked Justin (Aaron Spears) when he saw him in his Bill’s chair at Spencer Publications.
The just-returned Thomas (Pierson Fode) asked Sally (Courtney Hope) if she shot Bill. Miss Spectra denied it, which seemed to erase both characters from reasonable suspicion. Considering their recent relationship and mutual hatred of Bill, either person would likely have boasted about committing the crime to the other, if such was the case. Neither did, so they probably didn’t do it.
