The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoilers tease that the green-eyed monster could rear its ugly head soon. It appears jealousy will strike for several B&B characters starting the week of December 16-20. For starters, Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) will determine that instead of trying to pull Hope closer, he should push her away instead. Thomas will count on Hope coming to him after envy burns within her.
For this phase of Thomas’ plan, he’ll use Zoe Buckingham’s (Kiara Barnes) interest in him to his advantage. However, Zoe will muddy the waters a bit by teaming up with Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline Macnnes Wood), who’ll be in cahoots with Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton). If that sounds like a big ol’ mess, that’s because it probably will be! Zoe should be in over her head before she knows it.
Nevertheless, Thomas’ plot stands a good chance of working. There’s no reason for Hope to be interested in Thomas after everything that’s gone down, but there’s definitely some hot chemistry between them. Hope seems intrigued by Thomas on some level – and that should continue to be the case after he shows interest in Zoe instead.
It’s one thing for Hope to shut down Thomas’ pursuit, but it’s quite another for him to drop it himself. Hope won’t be in control anymore and that should throw her for a loop. The power dynamic will shift between them, which could set up the jealousy that Thomas is counting on. Hope may not want to admit it, but she could find herself resenting Zoe for being the new object of Thomas’ desire.
Of course, there’ll be a couple of other jealousy layers in this Bold and the Beautiful storyline. Zoe will naturally be jealous of Hope, who’ll remain number one in Thomas’ heart. We could also see some jealousy from Liam, who may take notice when Hope’s bothered by Thomas’ interest in Zoe.
Liam might call Hope out for being territorial and get an outraged denial in return. This could lead to another round of “Lope” conflict and keep pushing Liam back in Steffy’s direction. The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers say Thomas’ plot could certainly have some unintended consequences, but he’ll only care about building the “Thope” future he’s dreaming of.
