‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ mystery person creates drama for Hope Logan and Liam Spencer

Poor Hope and Liam can’t seem to catch a break. Their marriage was rocked by many issues this past year, the most recent being Liam’s incarceration for Vinny Walker’s (Joe Locicero) death. After Liam’s release from prison, he was ready for a fresh start with Hope. Yet, the couple’s reunion might be short-lived.

According to, The Bold and the Beautiful fall previews reveal Hope and Liam will face more drama. “There is a mysterious person headed their way, which is going to add some great challenges to their young marriage and family. That is going to be a bit of a shocker.”

‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ mystery person a former character?

The Bold and the Beautiful fans already have their first clue about the mystery person’s identity. According to, the person is “a character that will return to the show.” Many characters have a connection to Hope and Liam and would undoubtedly stir up drama with their arrival.

One theory is the person is Caroline Spencer (Linsey Godfrey). Although Caroline died in 2019, as The Bold and the Beautiful viewers know, characters can come back to life. Caroline’s return would cause trouble for Hope. In Caroline’s absence, Hope has become a mother figure to Douglas Forrester (Henry Joseph Samiri). A custody battle between the two women would be a compelling drama with Liam and Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) stuck in the middle.

Aside from Caroline, another candidate is Dr. Reese Buckingham (Wayne Brady). Reese was responsible for the baby switch involving Hope and Liam’s daughter Beth Spencer (Madeline Valdez). Currently, the doctor is in prison, but he might be heading back to Los Angeles with a bombshell revelation upon his release.

Will Hope Logan and Liam Spencer’s marriage survive?

The Bold and the Beautiful viewers will have to wait and see who the mystery person is. One thing’s for sure; the returning character will have a significant impact on Hope and Liam. Although Lope fans will be excited to see more screen time for the characters, they’ll be upset with the latest drama threatening to break them.

In the past, Hope and Liam have put up a united front in the face of adversity. Whether they survive this latest obstacle remains to be seen. However, the couple better enjoy their happy home life while they can.
