This week on The Bold and the Beautiful (May 23 – 27, 2016): Liam controls Quinn’s freedom; Is Sasha pregnant; Ridge has a plan; Rick and Maya name their daughter…
Liam, Wyatt and Steffy
Liam tries to explain to his father that while he was missing with no memory he believed with every ounce of his being that he was Adam, Eve’s adoring husband. But Bill clearly doesn’t understand because he tells his son to focus onto Quinn and pressing charges and making her pay for what she has done.
Liam agrees what Quinn did was unforgivable and he isn’t going to let her get away with that.
But Bill has his something very specific in mind. He tells Justin that Quinn goes away for a very long time.
Liam will find himself holding the prison keys that could see Quinn out of their lives forever, or at least for a very long time. Liam’s feelings about Quinn are clearly mixed. Wyatt has no such mixed feelings. He doesn’t want his mother to go to jail. He wants her to get treatment. Wyatt turns to his brother and asks for mercy for his mother.
Wyatt asks Liam to do what he does best; have some compassion and show some generosity; do not press charges against my mother Wyatt begs of his brother. Wyatt then makes the same argument with Bill, but Bill is even less forgiving of Quinn’s shortcomings. Bill tells Wyatt that Liam needs closure on this incident in his life and the only way to do that is for Quinn to go away for a very long time.
What will Liam do? When it comes to hearing day, Quinn finds herself before Liam. Quinn pleads her case. Quinn tells Liam that he made her the very best version of herself. Quinn believes she can be that woman again. She begs him to please not send her to prison. But Liam seems to be suffering from a case of compassion fatigue when he tells Quinn that she was the same conniving, scheming monster in the cabin that she is in the real world.
Lt Baker finally says what we are all thinking. He’s had enough of Quinn pleading with Liam, Liam justifying his desire to press charges, but in his wishy washy way not actually making the decision to do so. Lt Backer wants Liam’s decision. Is he going to press charges against Miss Fuller or not?
Quinn’s freedom depends on the three Spencer men. Bill and Wyatt debate whether or not Quinn belongs behind bars for what she did to Liam. Given it’s a debate, you would have to assume that Bill believes Quinn should be locked away and the key thrown away, while Wyatt, as Quinn’s son may be a little more forgiving of his mother and believe she can repent without going to jail. (Though that has never worked before). But she’s never been in love with Liam before either. And when it comes down to it, what Bill and Wyatt think doesn’t really carry that much weight.
Quinn’s freedom is much more likely to depend on whether her “victim” Liam, presses charges. Wyatt has seen and heard Liam’s mixed feelings over Quinn and he sees this as an opportunity to plead for leniency on his mother’s behalf.
Liam seems to have a belly full of mixed feelings over Quinn. He certainly hates her for keeping him away from Steffy and all it cost him in his life as Liam, but Liam also doesn’t seem to be able to forget that Quinn cared for him when he was ill and that they had come to love each other like a married couple. Even if it was all based on a fantasy Quinn concocted…
Will Liam send Quinn to prison? By Mid week we will know.
Rick and Maya
Rick and Maya enjoy their first days as new parents. By Thursday, Baby Girl Forrester will have a name announced to friends and family. Any bets on Nicole as a middle name?
But Rick and Maya’s baby has cost Nicole dearly and Maya truly feels for her sister in that regard. With Sasha announcing that she is pregnant with Zende’s baby, Maya seems to be suspicious and she tries to find out whether it really is true. The timing just seems far to convenient that Zende was about to dump her and go back to Nicole and Sasha surprises him with her news. Maya brings Sasha a pregnancy test. Take it she suggests to prove to them its true.
Maya is confident in what the test will show. She tells Zende and Nicole that this is almost behind them and they can walk off hand in hand together and put all of this in the past.
But what if the test shows Sasha is pregnant?
Spoilers also hint that two former adversaries form an alliance. The birth of Rick’s daughter is only going to add fuel to Rick’s aggression towards Ridge. Rick will e taking his daughter home to live in his mother’s house (the house he grew up in ?) and Rick had plans to raise his family in the Forrester Mansion where Ridge is now living with his new family.
Is Rick going to form an alliance with Thomas, who also has just cause to feel animosity towards his father? Rick and Thomas battled each other for control of Forrester Creations during Ridge’s absence in Paris so the pair has certainly been adversaries in the past.
Sasha, Nicole and Zende
Nicole and Zende’s reunion hits a bump in the road as he has to tell Nicole that Sasha is pregnant. Nicole who was so hopeful for her future for her future with Zende is devastated. She thought they had a second chance, and now Zende is telling her that Sasha is pregnant.
But Zende is still determined that he and Nicole are supposed to be together. Zende wants Nicole and they can’t let this get between them Zende tells Nicole who is still recovering from giving birth herself. But Nicole isn’t sure what they have now.
Nicole and Zende aren’t going to let another pregnancy get between them however, and decide they will not let Sasha’s news derail them getting back together.
In fact, Nicole doesn’t seem to believe her sister that she is pregnant. This storyline only remains interesting if Sasha is faking and struggles to conceal that fact from Zende and Nicole…
Sasha has an offer for her Daddy Dearest…She wants him to help her get Nicole to back off from Zende so he can stand by Sasha…But Julius has some advice for his daughter. Getting pregnant with her sister’s boyfriends baby is not he way to get the type of love she says she wants. Sasha doesn’t seem to care though. She tells Julius that she and Zende are going to be parents and Nicole will just have to deal with it.
Caroline and Ridge
Ridge has shown little compassion or empathy for his son’s situation since he was backed into a corner by Katie and felt forced to tell Thomas the truth. Not only does Ridge know about the night with Caroline in the hotel room but Thomas is Douglas father.
Caroline was left to smooth over Thomas’ hurt feelings as the revelation did nothing to improve Thomas and Ridge’s father son relationship. In fact, it likely only damaged it further. Caroline took a gently approach with Thomas and quietly explained that there were repercussions to Douglas and the world finding out the truth about his paternity now. She asked Thomas to do the right thing by his son and her (if not his father) to keep scandal from following Douglas all his life.
Thomas could see the logic and agreed. But it was a very emotional time. There is every chance he could change his mind…
Thomas tells Ridge he would like to spend some time with his son that evening. Ridge doesn’t like that Thomas continues to refer to Douglas as “his son” and makes that clear to Thomas.
And Ridge, in his need to control the situation and protect the family that he and Caroline have built can’t have that. Ridge comes up with a plan to keep everything status quo that will see Douglas raised protected from the scandal of his conception. But will Caroline agree to Ridge’s plan? She already seems to have doubts about his hard line attitude toward his eldest son.
Ridge makes some staffing changes at Forrester Creations that throws Thomas off guard. Ridge tells his son a transfer to Shanghai is to groom him as future CEO of Forrester Creations, but Thomas is wise to what is really going on. Is Ridge trying to buy his son’s silence? You bet. Thomas understands that Ridge is trying to protect his perfect little family with Caroline but keeping Thomas out of it.
But Caroline has always had more empathy towards Thomas’ situation than Ridge. What will she think? When Ridge tells her that he transfered Thomas to Shanghai, indefinitely she wonders out loud if they really have to send him so far away?
