The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoilers-update for Thursday December 5th teases us that we will see a conflict after the Thanksgiving. B&B probably knew that some precautions would shed things this year and planned a bit ahead. Anyway, the show skips the usual fluff at the table and focuses on moving the storylines.
Douglas Forrester (Henry Joseph Samiri) will mention that he gets stuffed and tell how much he hates cranberries. He’ll be happy to spend part of his Thanksgiving with his new official mom, Hope Logan (Annika Noelle). There will also be talk of Beth Spencer (River Davidson and Madeline Valdez) spending part of the holiday together, so it’s good that they’ve wasted some sister time.
At Forrester Creations, Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) will encourage Douglas to work on an art project for Hope – a project that will be important later. Meanwhile, Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) will come in and let Thomas know that he knows him. Liam doesn’t think Thomas’ fake death plan was to show Hope that good people can keep secrets. He will think it was a manipulative movement that was meant to teach Hope a lesson.
Liam will insist that Hope will never forgive Thomas for cheating on her for Beth. Thomas was willing to love Hope’s daughter, so Liam will be convinced that it will always be a big attack on him. The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers say that Liam will warn Thomas to withdraw. He doesn’t want Thomas to mess with his family, but Thomas will suggest that he now has his own family with Hope and Douglas.
Meanwhile, Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) will stop at the hut, where Hope will read to Beth. After Steffy makes a cha cha cha joke and shares a short moment with Beth, Hope puts the baby down for a nap. That will make her compete with Steffy, who has to get some things off her chest.
Steffy will rage that Hope is using Thomas’ feelings against him. She will feel that Hope has manipulated Thomas to sign custody of Douglas, so she will clearly give her rival an earful. Steffy will also certainly not approve Hope’s decision to hide Thomas’s “downfall”.
As for Beth, Steffy will wonder if Hope will ever be able to forgive Thomas. Hope will point out that she could ask Steffy the same thing. Steffy will insist that she does, but she insists that Thomas was manipulated by Hope. They will fight a war of words, but Steffy will continue to use this argument to see Liam at Spencer Publications.
Steffy wants to see Liam settle in SP, but he seems to be worried. The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers say Liam will be open to Steffy about her delusional brother. He’ll feel like Thomas still thinks he can work his way into Hope’s life. Liam assures Steffy that Hope intends to focus on their family and stay home with Beth for a while.
Together with Hope she goes to Forrester Creations after being summoned by Thomas. Hope sees some new designs on models and hears Thomas’ pitch so she can come back fulltime. Thomas wants to work together for Hope for the Future – and so does Douglas. He will show mama Hope the poster he made for Hope for the Future and encourage her to work with his father.
