'The Bold And The Beautiful' Spoilers: Hope sees Thomas with the mannequin but will Liam's mistake unite them?
Hope may be the only one who can help Thomas. With Liam sleeping with Steffy, Hope and Thomas could get back together
Spoilers for 'The Bold And The Beautiful'
Things are moving quickly in this week's episodes of 'The Bold And The Beautiful'. Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) walked in on his ex-wife, Steffy Forrester's (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood), brother Thomas Forrester (Michael Atkinson) seemingly kissing his current wife Hope Logan (Annika Nicole). However, the real situation is even weirder — Thomas was actually kissing a mannequin that looks exactly like Hope, hallucinating that it had come to life after he hit his head twice.
Clearly, Thomas is having some issues and probably suffering a concussion. When Steffy's current boyfriend, Dr John "Finn" Finnegan (Tanner Novlan) comes to check on him, Thomas refuses to accept that something is wrong, and so Finn goes to Hope to get her to help convince him. Meanwhile, Thomas' father, Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) comes to check on him, surprising the former.
Ridge is concerned that Thomas might still be obsessed with Hope. Thomas thinks it’s okay for him to admire her but his father reminds him there’s a line he can’t cross. Talk turns to Liam and Thomas doesn’t understand Steffy and Hope’s view of him but has to accept it.
That acceptance could be short-lived, however, as we learn that Liam spent the night with Steffy — and slept with her. It turns out the two drank a lot together and ended up making love after Liam pondered whether he should have stayed with Steffy. Steffy urges Liam to talk to Hope, but he is not sure of what he can say to her thinking that she cheated on him.
We can't help but wonder what will happen once he realizes that she was faithful, but we sure hope that Hope will know she deserves better. Later, when Thomas is alone with the mannequin (Faux Hope), he hallucinates her telling him that Liam is the one who has "to go" after he tells her she needs to leave his mind. An argument ensues and while Thomas yells at Faux Hope, the real Hope shows up outside his door and overhears Thomas yelling at Faux Hope.
She walks in to find Thomas shaking the doll and shouting, “You are not Hope!” She tells him to let go of the mannequin. So, with Hope now finally realizing that Thomas is indeed unwell, it could provide a catalyst for the former lovebirds to come back together.
In the spoilers for the next episode, we learn that as Thomas’ grip on reality becomes less tenuous by the moment, Hope may be the only one who can pull him back. But how far is she willing to go in order to serve as his lifeline?
Meanwhile, both Steffy and Liam have crossed a line leaving us wondering when Finn and Hope will find out and how they will react to their respective beaus. Steffy herself may just end up wanting to remain with Finn, but we will have to wait and see. Steffy finds herself in the nearly impossible position of being caught between two men she loves in very different ways.
Will she be able to prevent Liam from doing something she believes he’ll regret where Thomas is concerned? What does Liam have planned? Will he relent once he learns that Thomas is sick?
'The Bold And The Beautiful' airs on CBS on weekdays at 1.30 pm ET.
