The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoilers for Friday, May 31, tease that Xander Avant (Adain Bradley) will be determined to pry some info out of Zoe Buckingham (Kiara Barnes). He listened in on Zoe’s discussion with Florence “Flo” Fulton (Katrina Bowden), so now he knows Beth Spencer is alive. Xander’s naturally wondering where Beth is and how in the world this is even possible.
A flustered Zoe will insist that Xander needs to let this go. She’ll urge Xander to forget he heard anything and just leave it alone. However, there’s no way Xander can do that now. He’ll contend that Zoe had better tell him the whole story, so she’ll be out of options. Zoe will have to accept that there’s someone else in the secret circle and hope Xander’s willing to keep his mouth shut, too.
Once Zoe divulges the details of this B&B baby swap, she’ll undoubtedly deliver a heartfelt plea. Zoe will explain why those in the loop have stayed quiet and push Xander to the same. She’ll point out that Xander will send Dr. Reese Buckingham (Wayne Brady) to prison if he comes forward. Zoe could obviously be in serious trouble as well, so she’ll resort to begging and count on Xander to back her up.
Of course, Xander will think Hope Spencer (Annika Noelle) and Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) deserve to know Beth survived. He’ll argue that it’s wrong to keep these grieving parents from their daughter. Zoe will understand that, but she’ll just have to keep talking and try to get Xander on her side. Since we know the secret won’t be exposed to Hope yet, Xander won’t be divulging the baby switch news to her.
Other Bold and the Beautiful spoilers say Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) will get interrogated. Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) will confront her brother and demand answers about his motives. She won’t buy that this was all about securing a fill-in mom for Douglas Forrester (Henry Joseph Samiri). Steffy will feel like this is more about Thomas’ desires than what Douglas needs.
Thomas will assure Steffy that Douglas is his priority, but he may admit he’s on the verge of getting what he wants. He’ll believe “Thope” will happen in time just as a “Steam” reunion should. Steffy will continue to drag her feet on that idea, but not for long. Once Thomas does a little more manipulating, Steffy will definitely start drifting back in Liam’s direction.
