Deacon Sharpe and Brooke Logan’s kiss motivates Thomas Forrester’s custody decision

The Bold and the Beautiful has been hinting at a custody battle between Hope and Thomas for a while. Taylor Hayes (Krista Allen) believes that Douglas should live with Thomas instead of Hope. Thomas hasn’t made a move to alter the custody agreement, but he may be motivated after Douglas’ secret.

According to Soaps.com, Douglas tells Thomas about seeing Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) kissing Deacon on New Year’s Eve. While Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) uses this information to break up Brooke and Ridge Forrester’s (Thorsten Kaye) marriage, Thomas has other plans.

Hearing his son’s story will make Thomas question Hope’s parenting skills. Thomas’ suspicions will further increase he learns that Brooke asked Douglas to keep quiet about her secret. Fearing that the Logan mansion is an unfit place for Douglas, Thomas will have no choice but to fight for custody.

Choosing between her son or her father

The Bold and the Beautiful viewers are excited about the inevitable custody battle with Hope and Thomas. Most fans on Twitter have been calling for father and son to be reunited. “Douglas needs to be living with Thomas. A son deserves his father,” wrote one user.

While Thomas stands a good chance of winning, Hope isn’t going to give up without a fight. Yet, her parents may do her case more harm than good. Brooke’s drinking and Deacon’s past will play a big factor in the case, with the judge questioning the environment Douglas is being raised in.

Brooke and Deacon’s kiss has created a lot of turmoil, and it will get worse. With Hope possibly losing Douglas, she may cut ties with her father to keep her son. But is she willing to give up Deacon for Douglas?
