‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ This Week: Deacon Shoots His Shot With Brooke — Again

On The Bold and the Beautiful, things are definitely getting spicy between Deacon and Brooke. Deacon has finally declared his love for his baby mama, and he’s made clear he’s not going to let her go. Naturally, he’s banking on the “forbidden kiss” to remind her of all the good times they spent together. And, of course, the existence of Hope is a reminder that they once loved one another, too. But how’s Ridge going to handle all this? And will Brooke ever come clean with him about the kiss that never should have been?

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

On ‘The Bold and the Beautiful,’ Deacon isn’t giving up

SoapHub confirms that last week’s The Bold and the Beautiful left things off on a very strange note. What is still not clear is whether Deacon’s confession of love for Brooke is genuine, or part of a bigger plan with Sheila Carter to take her down. Regardless, if it’s genuine, it’s definitely not going to make things easier between Brooke and Ridge (who are on the verge of divorce, at this point).

Plus, with Brooke desperate to hold on to her sobriety, the last thing she needs is this confession from her baby daddy. She’s all but spiraling out of control, and she needs a friend.

The good news is, Brooke gets her wish. The bad news is, it comes in the form not even she suspected.

Brooke is in shambles — and Taylor offers her help

Soaps.com reports that Brooke’s old rival, Taylor, realizes that she’s in desperate need of help. And on the Jan. 18 episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, she’ll offer her ex-rival some help. Whether Brooke accepts it, of course, is up to her.

“Well, it sounds like at least one Forrester lady is in the know about Brooke’s relapse. Watch for Taylor to pay a surprise visit to her nemesis, offering her friendship and professional help,” reports the outlet.

Now, this isn’t going to sit well with Sheila Carter, who thought she had an ally in Taylor. But, never fear, because Taylor is already on to Sheila’s conniving ways, and fans can expect a confrontation between these two women on the Jan. 19 episode of the show. But there’s another rivalry that Taylor won’t be able to do anything about.

But Hope & Steffy still can’t seem to get along

Celeb Dirty Laundry reveals that Hope is desperate to keep Steffy from finding out anything about her mother’s relapse. And she’ll do anything to make sure Steffy has no leverage against her. So, to accomplish her goals, she’ll beg Liam to keep the details about Brooke’s relapse away from his ex at all costs.

It’s not clear whether Liam will be able to keep that promise. Suffice it to say, though, that Steffy will go bananas if she finds out. All Steffy has wanted is an excuse to get her mom and dad back together, and Brooke’s relapse — and confession — will give it to her.

We’ll have to tune in to this week’s episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful to see what happens next.
