The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoilers tease that the CBS soap is gearing up for an epic big reveal. Ever since that fateful night on Catalina Island, B&B fans have been waiting for Hope Logan (Annika Noelle) to learn the truth about her baby. Beth Spencer is alive and well, so that part will be wonderful news for this mom stuck in grief.
However, it’s Hope’s anger that’ll really drive the story. Despite Hope’s joy over Beth’s survival, she’ll have plenty of be mad about. Let’s run down the list, shall we? For starters, there’s Reese Buckingham (Wayne Brady). He betrayed Hope’s trust in the worst way possible. What kind of doctor can hand a hysterical woman someone else’s dead baby and pretend there was nothing he could do?
Reese wanted to protect Zoe, but there had to be a better plan than stealing Hope’s baby and giving her to Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood). Then, we’ve got Zoe Buckingham (Kiara Barnes), who’s mainly concerned about protecting her criminal father and saving her own butt from prison. She’s just as guilty for sitting on this swap secret for so long.
Xander Avant (Adain Bradley) feels guilty and has considered coming clean, but what good has that done Hope? Grow a backbone, Xander. He gets no passes from us – and he’ll get none from Hope either. Of course, we can’t forget Florence “Flo” Fulton (Katrina Bowden). Dear sweet cousin Flo! She took money as part of Reese’s scheme AND accepted this fabulous new life the Logans offered her.
Taylor Hayes (Hunter Tylo) should also face backlash for getting duped into this shady adoption. She should’ve known something wasn’t right about this rushed, suspicious transaction. Even Steffy could get some flak for that. Of course, Flo’s mom was also part of the secret circle and can’t be left out. There’ll be plenty of blame to go around.
Even so, it may be Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) who faces the worst of it. He contributed to poor Emma Barber’s (Nia Sioux) death and is pursuing Hope all while knowing Beth is perfectly fine. Thomas is clearly obsessed, not in love. When you consider all these betrayals, Hope seems poised to come unhinged. She could be headed for a rage-filled breakdown. Will that affect the custody situation?
Hope is Beth’s mother; there’s no doubt about that. Unfortunately, Hope may sabotage herself a bit through her behavior in the aftermath. The typical soap trope would be for Steffy to find out the truth beforehand and stay quiet for a while, but what if B&B keeps her hands clean? Liam would remain sympathetic toward Steffy, which could add to Hope’s fury.
Will Hope turn violent or at least seem highly unstable? Will Liam – and as a result, Steffy – end up with custody of Beth? It’d be an interesting direction for this Bold and the Beautiful storyline. That’d keep the drama going and provide one more obstacle to a true Hope-Beth reunion.
Whatever the case, the aftermath of this revelation is sure to be explosive. The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers say some excellent scenes are coming up. We’ll give you updates as other B&B details emerge. Stay tuned to the CBS soap and don’t forget to check CDL often for the latest Bold and the Beautiful spoilers, updates and news.
