The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoilers reveal that Hope Spencer (Annika Noelle) is definitely struggling. B&B fans can tell Hope isn’t doing well at all. She seemed to be improving somewhat until Thomas Forrester’s (Matthew Atkinson) manipulation began. Now Hope has fallen back into a dark place, but the truth is she never fully left.
Hope hasn’t really been the same since the night Beth Spencer “died.” Once Thomas shook things up for her, Hope couldn’t keep it together anymore. It was easy for her to once again push Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) back toward his family. Douglas Forrester (Henry Joseph Samiri) gave Hope a new direction to lean in, but it’s not necessarily a healthy one.
It’s great that Hope and Douglas are helping each other, but their sweet bond can’t fix what’s broken. Hope has major issues that need to be addressed by a professional. Her family should be insisting that Hope get some therapy immediately. How can they let Hope spiral out of control like this without some sort of intervention?
Hope isn’t thinking clearly, so her loved ones need to be stepping up. Instead, they’re just letting Hope crumble and spin out right before their very eyes. She’s in more pain that she’s ever been in and nobody’s doing anything about it. The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers say the situation may get worse before it gets better.
Even Annika Noelle agrees that professional help is what Hope needs most. In a recent Facebook live chat, Noelle was asked what one piece of advice she would give her character. She had an answer immediately. “Therapy for post-partum depression,” Noelle said. “I think therapy would be good for her at this moment…I think talking to someone who’s not a part of our world would be very helpful to Hope.”
Talking to Thomas is futile since he only manipulates Hope for selfish gain. Maybe part of him thinks he’s doing what’s best for Hope, but he’s only doing what’s best for himself. Liam isn’t the ideal option either since the loss affected them both so deeply. Hope needs someone who can offer an objective point of view – and that’s certainly not anyone in this love triangle.
Of course, people like Steffy and Brooke Forrester (Katherine Kelly Lang) can’t be objective either. Hope desperately needs a real therapist, but will she get one? Time will tell, but The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers say Hope will face more troubling bumps in the road. We’ll give you updates as other B&B news comes in.
