‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ Spoilers: There’s a New Contender for Hope’s Affections

This week’s The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers reveal that there’s a new man who’s desperate for Hope’s affections. And believe it or not, it’s neither Liam nor Finn. Meanwhile, Sheila Carter continues to conspire with the worst of the worst in Los Angeles to take her daughter-in-law, Steffy Forrester, down. (You know, Sheila, you just might consider therapy. This level of attachment to your long-lost biological son can’t be healthy. Oh, who are we kidding? This is a soap opera. This type of drama is what makes watching it fun!)

[Spoiler alert: Potential spoilers for upcoming episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful are ahead.]

On ‘The Bold and the Beautiful,’ Hope has Deacon & Thomas vying for her attention

According to SoapHub, the latest The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers reveal that with Deacon Sharpe out of jail, he’s set his sights back on Hope again. Daddy’s home, Hope! And as you can imagine, she didn’t react well to this bit of news at all.

But Deacon’s not the only one who wants Hope. According to a separate report from SoapHub, Thomas still has feelings for Hope, even if she’s a happily married woman. Surely, seeing her again during his little visit with his kid probably had a lot to do with it.

Because this is The Bold and the Beautiful, things have to get messy. And as it turns out, Thomas doesn’t just have his eye set on Hope.

Thomas also may have a crush on Paris

Hope’s latest embarrassment of riches in the men department probably will soften the blow when Liam inevitably leaves her for Steffy (again). But SoapHub seems to imply that Thomas won’t be a problem for Hope in their upcoming spoilers report. In fact, the outlet implies that Thomas may develop a whole new crush: Paris!

“Thomas certainly needs a love interest who isn’t Hope, and Paris is languishing with storylines that seem to keep stalling out,” they write. “Perhaps this spark between Thomas and Paris ignites into something big — at least for him. What if he thought they had something but she returns to Zende? Could another unrequited romance tip the Thomas scales back to the dark side?”

Paris’ love life sure is messy.

Meanwhile, elsewhere in Los Angeles, Sheila Carter continues to be messy

Speaking of messy, the latest The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers from Soaps @ SheKnows reveal that Sheila’s working overtime to get as many allies as possible in her quest to take Steffy Forrester down. The outlet implies that on the Oct. 8 episode of the show, Sheila will set a plot in motion where she “kidnaps herself” to get Finn back in her clutches.

This may seem like a huge stretch — but given that this is Sheila Carter, is anything really out of the realm of possibility? Remember, this is a woman who faked a fainting spell to get her son to take care of her in the hospital. And, clearly, “Dr. Dumb” will continue to live up to his name — and rush to Sheila’s aid.

Can Steffy stop Sheila from manipulating her son? We’ll just have to tune in to upcoming episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful to find out for sure.
