Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) returns to his old self The bold and the beautiful. The young man has gone through a difficult time over the past three years. While fans thought he’d finally redeemed himself, the writers pulled a switcheroo.
Since Thomas’ return to The bold and the beautiful In 2019, fans saw his other side. Thomas became obsessed with Hope Logan (Annika Noelle) and used dirty tactics, including his son Douglas Forrester (Henry Joseph Samiri), to capture her. However, Thomas’ lies were soon exposed, and everyone admonished him for his misdeeds.
Later, Thomas underwent surgery for a traumatic brain injury, and fans believed this was the beginning of his redemption. But they were wrong. The latest drama about Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) and Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) brings Thomas back to his old tricks.
After throwing a fit about Thomas with a knife, Brooke threatened to call CPS. Ridge didn’t want to believe Brooke was calling CPS about his son, but he was devastated when he heard her voice on the message. As expected, Brooke didn’t make the call, and on the October 11 episode, it was revealed that Thomas set Brooke up.

The bold and the beautiful Fans have always been critical of the soap opera. One of her main criticisms is the show’s focus on Brooke, Hope and Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton). The writers always have to make sure the trio wins every fight, even if they’re wrong most of the time.
Many characters were ruined to make the trio look good. Once again, the writers throw Thomas under the bus to support the Logan family. On TwitterHer fans expressed their disappointment that Thomas went back to being a villain.
“It’s not shocking. What would have if Thomas weren’t to be made into the eternal villain and prop. It’s lazy and no reason to keep watching this show that doesn’t have a single creative bone in its body. I’m out. MA is wasted,” scolded one viewer.
“This show is such a joke. Seriously, throw Thomas under the bus AGAIN!?” asked a user.
“Sorry, but it’s not entertaining that Brooke is a victim and Thomas is the perpetrator. The real victims are the majority of viewers who expected a different outcome for a change,” wrote another commenter.
“So fans said ‘Thomas should have a real love interest and get his son back,’ and you heard ‘lets throw Thomas under the bus for Bridge/Lope scare, fake Brooke victimization,'” one fan wrote.
The reason for Thomas’ call is unclear. Could he have done it to win Hope back? Or was Thomas’ plan to separate Ridge and Brooke forever?
Whatever the reason, it won’t be long before Thomas’ secret is revealed in The Bold and the Beautiful. When it happens there will be a backlash. Hope will be disappointed with Thomas’ actions. She thought he had changed and defended him against Brooke and Liam. With Thomas showing his true colors, Hope will be more determined to keep Douglas away from him.
Thomas also has to reckon with being admonished by his father. Ridge will be furious that Thomas tricked Brooke and will stage a potential bridge reunion. It will also cause heartache for Thomas’ mother, Taylor Hayes (Krista Allen), who believed that she and Ridge would finally be together.
Thomas’ plan has created chaos for everyone, but he may suffer the consequences the most.
