This week on The Bold and the Beautiful (June 6 – 10, 2016): Brooke learns Thomas is Douglas’ father; Caroline doesn’t cope with everyone knowing her secrets; Liam wakes to a masked intruder in his home…
Bill, Katie and Brooke
Katie seems to be having issues with the concept of secrets. She pushed Ridge into telling Thomas that Thomas was Douglas’ biological father but couldn’t let it rest there and let Thomas, Ridge and Caroline decide how the future would unfold.
No, Katie had to let Thomas know that she knew and go so far as to let Thomas know that the reason Thomas knows about Douglas at all is because of her. Well, now, because of Katie’s inability to keep her mouth shut, Bill Spencer also knows. Bill is looking for a reason to oust Ridge as CEO of Forrester Creations but won’t use the secret of Douglas’ paternity against Ridge because it would also hurt Caroline.
Instead, he tells Brooke, who Ridge had already taken into his confidence about his vasectomy but thought Douglas was fathered by a sperm donor. Bill tells Brooke that Ridge is a fraud and he is living a lie.
Later, Bill has to face the music over telling Bill, Ridge’s secret. Katie seems genuinely surprised that Bill told Brooke. Bill tries to justify doing so by reminding Katie that this secret could help keep Brooke’s son from leaving town…Bill uses the same reasoning that Katie did in getting Ridge to tell Thomas the truth. Bill states that Ridge’s plan to keep Douglas’ paternity was an injustice against Douglas, Thomas and Caroline. Ridge’s plan only served himself.
But Katie likely can’t see the similarity between what she did and what Bill has done. She is furious with Bill (and likely herself) She wonders why she trusted Bill (fair call; he does make his living dishing other peoples dirt). Katie then asks herself what we’ve been asking for a while: why didn’t Katie just keep her mouth shut. Now she has to deal with the very real issue that Bill betrayed her trust to help Brooke…
Bill and Brooke, of course, confront Ridge and Caroline and confront with the truth. And back down agreeing to keep the secret. One secret they can’t keep however is how they feel about each other. Bill professes his love for Brooke, Brooke tells Bill she has always loved him. Do they give in to their passion for each other while Katie struggles not to take a drink following Bill’s latest betrayal?
Katie sees Bill’s putting Brooke’s needs above the promise he made to Katie as a betrayal. In the anger of the moment she once again told him to go be with Brooke. Katie makes a desperate move to save her marriage.
Ridge, Caroline and Thomas
With Caroline’s secrets unraveling around her, Caroline also comes undone. Caroline went along with Ridge’s plan, but was never 100% convinced what they were doing was right. The guilt has been eating away at her for months and Ridge’s hard line attitude to Thomas hasn’t helped.
Caroline promised in return for Thomas not claiming his son, that he would be involved in the boys life, even if not as his “father”. Ridge showed no respect for his wife’s wishes or integrity when he tried to send Thomas to Shanghai.
With more and more people knowing the truth, Thomas questions whether keeping the secret is still practical. How long will it be before Caroline says enough and makes sure her voice is heard and respected on this issue? Seemingly, she is one meltdown away from that happening….
Liam, Wyatt and Steffy
Thanks to Justin’s advice to Liam that sending Quinn to jail would be a difficult proposition, Quinn is once again a free woman. Liam told Quinn to stay away from him, but her parting words were that she would redeem herself in his eyes.
Quinn may be a free woman but she sure doesn’t’ have a lot of friends. Quinn is determined to be a part of her son’s life also. But Steffy has other ideas. Steffy is wise to how far Quinn will go to get what she wants for her son and herself, and she tells her mother in law so. Steffy, never one to back away from a fight or conflict (just ask Ivy!) confronts Quinn and makes it clear to her that she may be her mother in law, but Steffy wants Quinn out of her life. (Poor Quinn never endears herself to her daughter in laws). Quinn has completely altered Steffy’s life, and she will never forgive Quinn for that.
Meanwhile, Liam is trying to get on with life in a world where Steffy is his brother’s wife, but can’t forget that Quinn is the reason that he and Steffy aren’t married. And he can’t forget about Steffy. He tells Steffy that he is not giving up on them and he is not letting her get away from him again.
Quinn seems to have shifted gears when she comes to the realization that she and Liam are never going to happen. She tells Wyatt that she is afraid it is only a matter of time before Steffy turns to Liam again. Quinn decides that as long as Liam is alive her sons marriage will never be safe. Now living alone in the Malibu Cliff House, Liam is surprised when he is awakened by an intruder in his home…
Summer spoilers hint that an unusual incident involving Liam could change everything and have Wyatt wondering about the validity of his marriage to Steffy. Is this masked intruder the start of this story arc? If it is, it will see Wyatt make some difficult choices about his life this summer that will change his close relationships forever.

Summer Spoilers: The Bold and the Beautiful
The Bold and the Beautiful Summer preview hints at some surprising turn of events this summer:
More and more people learn about Douglas’ paternity, which has Ridge working harder than before to protect his family from a scandal.
Thomas is still torn between being the cause of the scandal that Ridge and Caroline fear and claiming Douglas as his son.
Bill’s ability to not use the paternity secret to unseat Ridge as CEO of Forrester Creations is in question. Let’s just hope another CEO power struggle results in an outcome more interesting than Rick talking the helm; again.
Sasha remains a thorn in the side of Zende and Nicole’s relationship. Ridge offers Sasha a new opportunity at Forrester Creations that means she won’t be heading back to Illinois. Nicole doesn’t trust her sister and becomes fiercely protective of her relationship with Zende demanding that Sasha stay away from him – even at work. Could Zende’s relationship with Nicole cost him professionally?
An unusual even for Liam, has Wyatt wondering if his marriage to Steffy is even valid. There are three possibilities here: Wyatt and Steffy’s marriage wasn’t valid; Wyatt and Hope’s divorce wasn’t valid meaning that Wyatt wasn’t free to marry Steffy invalidating their marriage; or Steffy’s divorce from Liam wasn’t valid meaning that she is still legally married to Liam.
Since Chaz Bono, who portrayed the minister that married Wyatt and Steffy, has been back on the set, it seems that it’s Wyatt and Steffy’s union that may be in question.
Katie continues to struggle to stay away from alcohol; Bill and Brooke struggle to stay away from each other.
