New theory suggests upcoming ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ twist is a dream

The Bold and the Beautiful creates a stir with the teasing of a plot twist. Krista Allen tweeted fans would go nuts when the episode finally airs. Meanwhile, supervising producer Casey Kasprzyk has been dropping hints on BOLD Live, saying the twist is would change the course of the show. 

Fans immediately began speculating on the twist. Theories range from a murder mystery to a character returning from the dead. A new idea has emerged that the twist is a dream, and the events from the past two years may not be real. 

Clues the twist is a dream

While the dream theory might seem outrageous, The Bold and the Beautiful fans believe it’s a possibility. A few viewers noticed the writers dropping hints with the recent dialogue. 

Taylor Hayes (Allen) and Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) referenced Taylor and Ridge Forrester’s (Thorsten Kaye) reunion feeling like a dream. Meanwhile, Hope Logan (Annika Noelle) compares Brooke Logan’s (Katherine Kelly Lang) situation to a nightmare. The constant use of the words dream and nightmare has fans convinced the twist is a figment of someone’s imagination. 

As for whose dream it is, many fans are chiming in with their guesses, including Taylor or Brooke. One theory is that Steffy is in a coma from her motorcycle accident two years ago. This is a wild theory and would undoubtedly alter the show. 

It would create many changes, including Steffy and John “Finn” Finnegan (Tanner Novlan) never marrying. Also, Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) and Deacon Sharpe’s (Sean Kanan) returns may not have happened. 

Fan reaction to the possible theory

The Bold and the Beautiful’s possible dream twist is making the rounds on social media. On a Reddit thread, fans voiced their opinion on the dream scenario. Many viewers seem to oppose the idea. 

“Would absolutely hate that,” wrote one user. “That would be stupid, like when the TV show Dallas did that in their 9th season,” another commenter replied.

However, a few fans were excited over the dream idea. “I’m gonna throw out an unpopular opinion and say if handled correctly to address the mounting concerns and actually lead to more compelling stories than we’ve had since 2018, then I could be onboard.” 

The cast and crew are being secretive over the twist. Fans will have to wait and see if it’s a dream or another shocker.
