This week on The Bold and the Beautiful December 4 – 8, 2017: Thorne moves in on Ridge’s life. Ridge frustrated by Thorne, Steffy and Bill vow secrecy
Ridge Squirms as Thorne Moves in On His Territory
Ridge hasn’t been challenged for his position in the company, or family for a while. Not since Rick and his reign of terror at the helm of Forrester Creations which included shooting up the offices when he didn’t like what he saw.
With Thorne back in town, Ridge has a surprising new challenger. Though the brother’s used to butt heads in their younger years, competing for status in the company and with Brooke, Thorne, for a number of years has taken a back seat to his brother, either in the basement, or off screen in Paris at International.
You could say that Thorne found more satisfaction out of his family and raising his daughter than going head to head with his half-brother.
But Thorne doesn’t have a family any more. Darla was killed when she was hit by a car years ago, and his daughter Aly, more recently lost her life along the same stretch on highway, at the hands of the daughter who “killed” her mother. He has lost a lot, and with nothing left to lose, Thorne is back in Los Angeles to take what is rightfully his.
This week, Ridge finds himself on the backfoot when he learns that Thorne is living with Brooke. Ridge has been trying to score that invitation from Brooke since she dumped Bill Spencer, but it hasn’t been forthcoming.
Thorne and Brooke have a solid friendship and mutual respect and Thorne has confided in Brooke about some of his aspirations for being back in Los Angeles. He has shown Brooke some of his designs. And this week, Thorne takes the same sketches to his dad, who like Brooke is thrilled with Thorne’s talent. But Ridge? He’s unlikely to take it too well that Thorne is moving in on more of his territory. Ridge liked having Thorne tucked away in the basement, but Thorne isn’t content with that anymore…
Ridge isn’t the type to sit around and just let Thorne take over his life, however. Totally secure with his position in the company, Ridge focuses on Brooke, which sees the duo spending some time in the company steam room, like they have so many times before.
But while Ridge is playing, Thorne is making it clear to his father, that Eric’s design talent wasn’t passed on via osmosis to Ridge it was passed down to Thorne in Eric’s bloodline. And Thorne has the proof to back it up. Not only has he been designing while in Paris but he has established his own successful fashion label – Aly’s Fashion – named for his daughter. By comparison Ridge’s career has almost been handed to him, a point that Thorne will no likely hammer home.
By midweek, Thorne, is up for taking long lunches at Il Giordino and meets Sheila who informs him about what Ridge got up to with their step-mother. With the gaps filled in on why Brooke called off her wedding to Ridge in Australia, Thorne has some words for his brother betraying Brooke at week’s end.
Steffy Confesses To Liam?
Last week’s Bold and the Beautiful cliffhanger Friday saw a highly emotional Steffy fight through tears and Liam’s self recriminations to try to tell Liam the truth about why she hasn’t been herself. When Steffy told Liam that her upset wasn’t to do with him, but his father, Steffy got Liam’s attention.
This week starts with Liam wanting to know why Steffy is so upset and what it has to do with his father. While it may look like there is no going back for Steffy, that she has to come clean now, something does go awry. She ends up on the phone and making a pledge with Bill to never tell Liam about their night together. Bill tells her its the only way to save her marriage. Steffy, still doesn’t seem so sure since these things have a way of coming out. The stress is literally making her sick, but she vows to keep the secret anyway, to save her and Bill’s relationships with Liam.
Liam continues to apologize to Steffy about his indiscretion with Sally, which just adds to Steffy’s already overwhelming feelings of guilt and anxiety.
By weeks end, the Bold and the Beautiful spoilers hint that Liam will start to get some clues about where Steffy went and what she did when she walked out on him after he came clean with her about kissing Sally Spectra. Liam learns from Quinn that Steffy was at the Forrester guest house. But that isn’t what Steffy told him…
