The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoilers tease that Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and Liam Spencer’s (Scott Clifton) friendly bond could take a serious hit. B&B fans know not too long ago, these two were seemingly on the verge of getting back together and becoming a united family again. Of course, the revelation that “Phoebe Forrester” was Beth Spencer (River Davidson and Madeline Valdez) changed all that.
Liam’s heart was still with Hope Logan (Annika Noelle), so now he’s getting his relationship back on track with her instead. However, Liam will always be connected to Steffy through Kelly Spencer (Zoe Pennington). They’ve managed to maintain a nice co-parenting bond and focus on what’s best for Kelly, but some drama could be brewing soon enough.
The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers say Douglas Forrester (Henry Joseph Samiri) could be the source of that drama – naturally, though no fault of his own! Poor Douglas has just been caught up in some tough situations over the past few months. First, he had to go through the heartbreak of losing his mother, Caroline Spencer (Linsey Godfrey). That’s a tough blow for any kid, especially one as young as Douglas.
Then, Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) manipulated his son and forced Douglas to suffer emotional abuse. He resorted to scaring his own child with a “ghost” at one point, so it’s clear that Douglas has really been through it. That’ll make Liam wary of putting Douglas through more pain, which might result from letting Thomas get too close.
Douglas is a hero in Liam’s eyes for revealing the truth about Beth. He feels a special obligation to protect the kiddo, particularly since Hope also feels connected to him. Brooke will be on “Lope’s” side, but what about Steffy? The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers say things could get complicated.
Despite her disapproval of Thomas’ behavior, Steffy might see Thomas make some changes and genuinely try to be a better dad. Thomas is the only living parent Douglas has left, so Steffy may think it’s cruel to keep them apart. Douglas had his issues with his father when Thomas went off the rails, but he truly loves his daddy.
Steffy could end up going to bat for Thomas in this area, which would certainly spark conflict with both Liam and Hope. The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers say the show will have to find ways to keep the action going, so setting up this clashing is one way to pull it off. If Liam and Steffy start fighting about Douglas, it could take a toll on their co-parenting situation with Kelly as well.
It sounds like there’ll be plenty of opportunities for soapy mayhem in the weeks ahead. We’ll give you updates as other B&B news comes in. 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.
