The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers recap for Tuesday, November 24, reveal that Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) told Hope Spencer (Annika Noelle) that the takeout was on the way for their family dinner with Douglas Forrester (Henry Joseph Samiri).
Thomas thanked Hope for staying at the apartment for dinner and for moving forward, and Hope texted Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) about staying at the apartment for dinner with Thomas and Douglas.
Hope wondered if Thomas was ok, because he seemed a bit distracted. Thomas’ vision went blurry as he gazed at Hope, but he said that he was fine and that he was just thinking about how he’s spending time with the two most important people in the world to him.
Thomas said it was great that they were coming together as a family and that he’d always care about Hope.
Hope got uncomfortable and went to go get Douglas for dinner. “You idiot, what are you doing? You’re going to scare her away,” Thomas said softly to himself, in clear distress.
Over at the cliff house, Liam and Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) continued to talk about Thomas and whether he was still obsessed with Hope.
Steffy said that Liam was being grumpy, and Liam said that he was just concerned and wished that Hope would keep her distance from Thomas. Steffy and Liam argued over all the familiar issues related to Thomas and Hope, with Liam fussing about Hope wanting Thomas to be a part of Douglas’ life.
Steffy was incredulous as Liam went on about Thomas continuing to manipulate Hope. Steffy argued that Thomas had changed, and just then Liam looked at his phone and was horrified to see that Thomas invited Hope and Douglas over for dinner.
Liam checked his “find a phone” on Hope and saw that Hope was over at Thomas’ apartment. Liam rushed off in a huff to head over to Thomas’ place, leaving Steffy exasperated.
Back at Thomas’ apartment, dinner was now over, and Douglas was playing video games in the other room. Thomas’ vision got blurry as he looked at Hope, and Hope asked if he was ok.
Thomas said that he just had a headache, and hope noted that he had a headache the last time she was over. Thomas recounted how he hit his head the last time Liam came over.
Thomas then started softly rambling in his haze about how he owed Hope and how thankful he was that she brought light back to Douglas’ eyes. “It makes me think that this could be our family, that this could be our future,” Thomas said.
Hope looked weird, and Thomas said that his words had come out wrong. Hope hurriedly went to get Douglas, and Thomas was irritated with himself.
Later, after Hope and Douglas had gone, Thomas was alone in the dark apartment with his shirt off. “She couldn’t leave fast enough. I blew it,” Thomas said to himself. Suddenly, Thomas’ head hurt again, and he saw the mannequin, which was out of her box.
The mannequin told Thomas that it wasn’t too late, and Thomas argued with the mannequin, saying that Hope left.
The mannequin told Thomas to stop whining, and that he should go after Hope and that he needed to take his family back. Thomas yelled at the mannequin to stop it, and the mannequin told Thomas not to be a coward and to show Hope how he felt tonight.
Just then, the real Hope knocked on the door, and Thomas answered. Hope had left her purse in the apartment and came back for it while Douglas was with another family down the hall.
Hope eventually found her purse in the bedroom, and when Hope came out, Thomas apologized for the evening having ended badly. Hope said that she thought the evening was good for Douglas and for them, too.
Thomas walked toward Hope, saying that he was grateful that she was in his life. “Thank you for giving me a second chance and for believing in me,” Thomas said. Meanwhile, Liam appeared at the elevator in the apartment building, on his way up to the apartment.
In the apartment, Thomas went on, saying that he wanted more nights like this, and that he hoped that this would be a night they’d never forget.
Thomas leaned in and kissed Hope, just as Liam opened the door to the apartment and looked in. Liam was stunned and horrified by the sight of Hope and Thomas kissing.
