'The Bold And The Beautiful' Spoilers: With Thomas' life in danger, will Steffy and Hope turn on Liam?
Spoilers for 'The Bold and the Beautiful'
Before we get into the episode that aired on Wednesday, December 2, let's do a quick recap. Thomas Forrester (Michael Atkinson) hit his head and is now having hallucinations that a Hope-lookalike mannequin is coming to life and seducing him. Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) walked in on Thomas kissing the mannequin but thought it was actually his wife, Hope Logan (Annika Nicole).
He then ran to Thomas' sister and Liam's ex, Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and proceeded to sleep with her. Meanwhile, Steffy sent her boyfriend, Dr John "Finn" Finnegan (Tanner Novlan) to check on Thomas. With Thomas refusing his help, Finn then asked Hope to reach out, who saw Thomas yelling at the mannequin when she went over.
Now that we have come full circle in this very messy love pentagon/quintet, let's pick up from the latest episode, which saw Hope realizing that Thomas is really unwell. As she asks him to let go of the mannequin, Thomas continues to see Faux Hope lose her temper and yelling at him to show his feelings. As Thomas rejects Faux Hope's advances, the real Hope understands what is going on and tries to convince him that the other Hope isn't real.
When Liam yells, "I don't want you, Hope," the real Hope becomes desperate to help. Overwhelmed, Thomas breaks down and decides to tell her he still loves her. He wants to explain that it is not like when he was obsessed with her and sobs that he knows he seems crazy as Hope reassures him. However, Thomas suddenly passes out as Hope screams out for him.
If viewers ever liked Liam, that might be changing now. By now, Liam's ignorance is especially frustrating as he continues to frankly waste Steffy's time while her brother is in danger. As Hope — who never cheated on him ” is struggling to help her former partner, Liam is pondering moving on with Steffy, who is also admitting that while she does have a connection with Finn, both Steffy and Liam cannot deny they had something between them.
Liam repeatedly justifies his cheating saying that Hope cheated on him first, a very weak excuse that will hold no water once Hope and Steffy realize that Liam is making things worse because of a misunderstanding he did not bother to clarify. Even Steffy, whose brother and ex-husband are both revolving around Hope, seems more empathetic to Hope, defending her as Liam continues to blame her.
Meanwhile, we get to see more of Thomas' parents, Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) and Brooke Forrester (Katherine Kelly Lang), as the latter worries that Thomas might still be obsessed over Hope. She wants to set Thomas up because she thinks it would be reassuring if Thomas moved on from Hope.
As 'The Bold And The Beautiful' returns for a new episode on Thursday, December 3, Thomas has a breakthrough. Unfortunately, it’s immediately followed by a breakdown which causes a panicked Hope to call Finn. With Finn going into hero mode and both Steffy and Hope being concerned for Thomas, we cannot help but think that Liam is going to find that neither woman will want to be with him.
'The Bold And The Beautiful' airs on CBS on weekdays at 1.30 pm ET.
