Brooke Warns About Thomas’ Instability and Growing Attachment to Hope
Monday June 17, 2019: On Bold and the Beautiful today, Bill and Katie surprise Liam and Steffy, Thomas wants his destiny with Hope, and Emma arrives during Xander and Zoe's conversation.
At the cliffhouse, Steffy and Liam hang out with the girls. Liam admits he feels a little dislocated in time. Bill and Katie arrive. Liam thinks it’s nice to see them together. Bill replies, “Likewise.” He acknowledges contributing to the break-up of their family, as well as his own. Bill’s putting his family back together and believes Liam and Steffy are on the road to doing the same – he hopes to be a part of it. Katie adds both of them would like that. When Liam leaves the room, Steffy tells Bill his son’s sad. Bill thinks Liam needs Steffy and knows it. Katie finds Liam in the kitchen and they touch on Steffy and Bill before Liam admits his guilt at feeling comfortable at the cliffhouse. Katie says Hope’s decision made sense to her. The four gather in the living room and Liam gives Bill props for facing things today and thanks him for coming. Bill loves him. They embrace. Liam loves him too. Steffy tears up.
At Brooke’s house, Thomas flashes to deleting the photo of Phoebe from Hope’s phone. Ridge approaches his son and muses about him daydreaming. Thomas says he thinks about Hope all the time and it’s going to happen between them. Ridge learns Hope said she wants to see where it goes. Thomas talks about Ridge’s destiny with Brooke; he understands that now. Ridge says destiny is there when you’re ready to claim it, then exits. Thomas imagines proposing to Hope, who accepts, tells him she loves him and kisses him passionately. Thomas walks to the window and muses, “It won’t be long now Hope. I’ve waited long enough.”
At Forrester Creations, Hope tells her mother the adorable photo of Phoebe that Liam sent her went missing. Brooke and Hope rehash Hope’s decision regarding her marriage. Brooke warns her to be cautious of Thomas. She saw Hope in his arms. Hope says she was having a bad night. Brooke thinks any man willing to be there in her bad moments will likely reward her with more of them. She points out Thomas makes plans for her and Douglas, who is innocent, but his father may not be. Hope thinks Douglas’ flowers and notes are sweet, but Brooke doesn’t believe they’re impulses of a child – Thomas isn’t stable and his attachment to Hope worries her.
In the Forrester Creations studio, Zoe kisses Xander who admits she has a way of making him see things her way…even with Thomas’ threats ringing in his ears. Zoe knows he wants a happy ending for Hope, which will mean the end for them. Xander argues the point and Emma appears – she didn’t mean to eavesdrop and didn’t hear anything they said but asks if everything’s okay. After, Zoe worries she could have heard Xander say Beth’s name.
Liam and Wyatt organize a gathering.
