The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoilers tease that the CBS soap will tackle a challenge. B&B seems poised to attempt Thomas Forrester’s (Matthew Atkinson) redemption, so they’ve got their work cut out for them.
However, it appears the show may go for a classic soap staple. There’s a good chance Thomas will be diagnosed with a brain tumor, so it’s definitely possible to redeem the character.
After all, Thomas can’t help it if a mass is growing in his brain. It could be the reason Thomas just keeps getting worse and worse. Thomas has a complex history and has always made some questionable choices, but we don’t know how long that potential tumor’s been growing. Regardless, Thomas’ worst offenses have come recently and those can easily be explained away through a brain tumor defense.
Will Thomas Forrester’s Family Forgive All His Past Deeds?
Of course, some fans may still hold a grudge. Sometimes your view of a character can be altered to the point where it’s tough to come back from it, no matter what explanation the show offers. However, the fact is a brain tumor would make it so Thomas isn’t really at fault. He can’t be responsible for a medical issue like this and obviously wouldn’t choose to have a brain tumor.
Whether B&B viewers forgive Thomas or not, the characters are a different story. The Bold and the Beautiful buzz is that Thomas will be happily singing carols with his family by Christmastime. Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) and Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) will certainly have sympathy for Thomas if this brain tumor ordeal plays out.
What about Hope Forrester (Annika Noelle), who’s currently planning an annulment? She loves Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) with all her heart, but we’ve been on this merry-go-round before. It’s just a matter of time until Liam drifts back toward Steffy, but where does that leave Hope? Perhaps there’s still a chance for “Thope” once the show repairs the damage with a medical excuse.
Could Hope Forrester Fall For Thomas Forrester For Real?
Hope and Thomas have some important scenes coming up in October. The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers say we could see a shift between them. Hope’s got a good heart, so she may accept Thomas’ sincere apology. He might awaken after surgery and suddenly see things so clearly. It’s easy to imagine Thomas being pretty broken up about being such a monster.
Could Hope fall for the real Thomas in time? Could a kinder, remorseful version of the character still be a viable love interest for Hope? Some Bold and the Beautiful fans liked their chemistry, despite the creepy story. The show might capitalize on that and do “Thope” right – no manipulation, no baby lies, just a slow-burn romance that comes from a place of compassion, love and gratitude.
Will Hope forgive Thomas if a brain tumor is revealed? Could they get a real shot at romance at some point or should B&B just move on? We’ll give you updates as other B&B news comes in.
