The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers for Thursday, August 20, tease that Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) will continue to explain her dire situation to Dr. John “Finn” Finnegan (Tanner Novlan).
As B&B viewers know, Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) persuaded Steffy to call Finn and finally get honest with him about her level of pain. Steffy has been trying to push through her excruciating pain, but she’s having a real struggle, since every time she moves, she seems to wince from the discomfort.
Well, now that Finn has heard about how Steffy is experiencing pain at night to the extent that she cannot sleep, and about how she can barely pick Kelly Spencer (Colette and Avalon Gray) up and put her in her crib, it will be time for him to make a decision.
Steffy has just asked Finn if she can have more prescription pain killers, and this will be a serious ethical dilemma for Finn.
On the one hand, Finn can see firsthand that Steffy is in terrible pain, and he won’t want his patient to be needlessly suffering.
On the other hand, there’s a good reason why people don’t stay on opioid pain killers for an extended period of time – because there’s a very real chance that the person can start to become addicted to them.
Finn will be well aware of this, and he’ll have to decide whether Steffy’s level of pain warrants another refill on the pain meds.
Meanwhile, on the new episode of B&B on Thursday, August 20, Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) will continue their conversation about their relationship.
As B&B viewers know, Ridge had Carter Walton (Lawrence Saint-Victor) draw up annulment papers for himself and Shauna Fulton Forrester (Denise Richards), and he’s shown them to Brooke, in the hopes that Brooke will realize that he doesn’t want Shauna as a wife.
But Brooke’s still pretty hurt over the fact that Ridge found it within himself – even while drunk – to text Carter and have him file the divorce papers, then marry Shauna shortly after.
Brooke is terribly upset about this turn of events, and she feels like Ridge has thrown away their marriage. Brooke also senses that Ridge does have some sort of attraction to Shauna, and she feels that this is standing in the way of any sort of reunion between the two of them.
Well, according to B&B spoilers, things will be looking pretty bleak for “Bridge” until they start to look back at some of their mistakes of the past. It appears that viewers may see some nice flashbacks from Brooke and Ridge’s history, or at least the two will have a discussion about what they’ve gone through in the past.
B&B spoilers say that the mood will lighten significantly as Brooke and Ridge realize that they’ve overcome so much in the past.
Of course, while Brooke and Ridge are having their moment at Brooke’s place, Shauna will likely be feeling more emblazoned about her future with Ridge as she gets more of a pep talk from Quinn Forrester (Rena Sofer).
It sounds like Shauna is going to get herself all worked up into never accepting an annulment from Ridge, which of course is all Ridge wants right now, so that he can be with Brooke. Something tells us that a real mess is brewing for Ridge, no matter how “well” things go between him and Brooke right now.
It sounds like a lot of B&B drama is heating up for Thursday’s episode, so stay tuned! We’ve got you covered here at CDL with all the latest soap news and spoilers, so stick with us! Remember to check out our daily B&B episode recaps as well.
