The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoilers update for Tuesday, May 4, teases that Hope Spencer (Annika Noelle) will encourage Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) to open up. Once Liam saw the memorial tribute that Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) passed along, it was enough to send him into a tailspin.
Liam was haunted by memories of running Vinny Walker (Joe LoCicero) down – and he thought back to Vinny’s “ghost” spooking him, too. Now Liam’s struggling to catch his breath and failing to hide his anxiety from Hope.
Since Hope will keep pushing for an explanation, Liam will have to think of something following his emotional outburst.
It’s possible Liam will claim the tribute was a reminder of how fragile life is or something along those lines. Liam might point out that Vinny’s future is suddenly over and worry something similar will happen to him.
Perhaps Liam will act like he’s just scared something will take away the fresh start he has with Hope now.
The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers say Hope will do whatever she can to comfort Liam and make him feel secure in their reunion. However, Hope may wonder if Liam’s truly OK deep down. Liam will continue to exhibit strange behavior, so that could become a bigger problem as time goes on.
Meanwhile, B&B fans will see Deputy Chief Bradley Baker (Dan Martin) go on the hunt for more answers about Vinny’s hit-and-run. Baker can’t shake the feeling that the paternity test tampering was a good motive for murder.
Baker’s narrowed it down to Thomas, Liam and Dr. John “Finn” Finnegan (Tanner Novlan) as the three people to focus on.
Thomas has already been questioned by Deputy Chief Baker, but The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers say Baker isn’t satisfied enough to clear him yet. That’s why Baker will want to speak with Thomas again – and he’ll bring Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) into the mix as well.
Baker’s interrogation will prompt a fervent defense from Ridge, who’ll assure the deputy chief that his son had nothing to do with Vinny’s death. Ridge may call Baker’s attention to the memorial tribute and point out that Thomas truly loved his friend.
Baker will pummel Thomas with more questions, but Thomas will insist he wants the true killer brought to justice just as much as the cops. Will Baker still walk away with doubts about Thomas’ innocence?
Whatever the case, Brooke Forrester (Katherine Kelly Lang) will wonder if Ridge can really take Thomas’ word for it here. Considering Thomas’ shady track record on The Bold and the Beautiful, Brooke will think it’s at least possible that Thomas murdered Vinny.
This should lead to another round of conflict between Ridge and Brooke, so stay tuned for a faceoff over Thomas. In the meantime, Quinn Forrester (Rena Sofer) will have to play it cool around Zoe Buckingham (Kiara Barnes).
At some point within the next episode or two, Zoe will track Quinn down and push for updates on how things went at Carter Walton’s (Lawrence Saint-Victor) loft.
Of course, Quinn won’t tell Zoe that she slept with Carter while she was there! Instead, it looks like Quinn will give Zoe hope that Carter’s coming around. Zoe will resolve to make another grand gesture soon enough, so she’ll have some planning to do.
