Flo Is Arrested for Kidnapping and Fraud After Hope Slaps Her
Monday August 19, 2019: On Bold and the Beautiful today, Shauna pleads her daughter's case, Flo's desire to make things right isn't enough, and Bill anticipates Flo's arrest.
In Brooke’s living room, Shauna’s confident that Flo will get through to Hope. Katie disagrees – this is about a stolen baby. Ridge enters and learns Shauna is asking for a little forgiveness. Ridge doesn’t care about Flo’s intentions; he cares about her actions – actions that will land her in prison. Shauna urges them to blame Reese Buckingham. Ridge says there’s plenty of blame to go around. Shauna begs them not to have Flo arrested. Brooke says Flo stole her granddaughter and lied about it – she’s not her niece, she’s a thief, and that’s all she’ll ever be to her.
In the cabin, Hope’s stunned that Flo thinks she may deserve a second chance. Flo wants to try to make it right. Hope counters, “All those months lost with my daughter, you think you can make that right?” Flo wants to show Hope she can trust her again. She reiterates she was helping a friend and adds that Thomas also knew. Hope asks why Flo didn’t come to her before Thomas found out. Flo pleads. Hope intones, “Forgive you? Hell no. Not now and not ever.” Hope feels it Flo even remotely understood what she put her through she wouldn’t have shown up there. She becomes furious that Flo thinks she’s a victim and starts hollering – did she even think about Steffy and her heartbreak? She breaks down that Flo made her care about her and was deceiving her the entire time. Flo protests – she struggled every day. Hope screams – she doesn’t want to hear about it! She seethes about what she was put through for a loser’s gambling debt, then slaps Flo across the face and levels, “That…is what you deserve.” Flo will give her more time. Hope wants her out of her life forever. She bellows about all the ‘firsts’ she missed that she can never get back and calls Flo her uncle’s bastard, not a cousin. Brooke, Donna, Katie and Ridge bust in with Shauna. The Logans lay into Flo about keeping quiet. Detective Sanchez arrives – he got Ridge’s call. Shauna cautions Flo not to say another word, as Sanchez arrests her for kidnapping and fraud. Shauna pleads as she’s taken away.
