The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoilers tease that there’s much more to come in the fallout of the Beth Spencer (River Davidson and Madeline Valdez) reveal. In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Head Writer and Executive Producer Bradley Bell reflected on the aftermath so far and previewed what’s still to come. Let’s take a look at what he had to say about the explosive payoff.
For starters, we should mention that the baby swap revelation brought major drama and a huge ratings boost as a result. The Young and the Restless is normally top dog, but B&B hit number one in the prized Women 25-54 demo for the first time in the show’s history. It took them 32 years to pull it off, so that says a lot about how much fans wanted to see the Beth finish line.
The Bold and the Beautiful achieved another first by coming in at number one in the Women 18-49 demo. Bell insisted he’s thrilled and expressed his gratitude to all the viewers out there. “It’s all been very exciting, watching it build to the payoff,” Bell said. “We’re just all so grateful to the fans for sticking with it for all these months.”
Bell specifically wanted to address the loyalty and patience of many B&B watchers. He’s appreciative of fans that keep tuning in and awaiting the moments they really want to see. Bell also made it clear that this is “not the end of the story.” The truth is already shaping characters’ actions and driving them down dangerous paths, so the show has more places to go with this.
“This is just the beginning of a new chapter…so keep watching,” Bell said. “There are plenty more surprises to come.” Bell also noted that this fall would bring a return of a crucial B&B element: fashion. That aspect has kind of fallen to the wayside lately, so Bell wants to bring it back with an upcoming fashion show and lots of fashion house shockers.
Naturally, that’ll bring more material for Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood), who hasn’t been as involved in this storyline as her fans would like. Steffy will take on a bigger role in this new chapter since we’ll see more going on at Forrester Creations. Hope Logan (Annika Noelle), Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) and Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) will certainly remain key players, too.
