‘The Bold and the Beautiful’: Zoe Returns to Help Zende Win Back Paris

The Bold and the Beautiful said goodbye to Zoe Buckingham (Kiara Barnes) last year when she left Los Angeles. Zoe was a character that fans had a love/hate relationship with, yet she kept the show interesting. As with many other departing characters, Zoe’s exit was left open for a possible return, which could be happening soon.

‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ Zoe Buckingham returns to shake things up for Paris Buckingham

Zoe’s last appearance on The Bold and the Beautiful came in July 2021. After learning that her fiancé Carter Walton (Lawrence Saint-Victor) was having an affair with Quinn Fuller (Rena Sofer), Zoe broke up with him, then left town. A lot has changed during Zoe’s absence, and her sister Paris Buckingham (Diamond White) has become the center of attention.

Zoe and Paris had an estranged relationship but reconciled before Zoe’s exit. Now, the sisters will be reunited upon Zoe’s return. According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, Zende Dominguez (Delon de Metz) plans a surprise for Paris with a visit from a relative. Speculation is the relative is none other than Zoe, who’s bound to shake things up in Paris’ life.

Will Zoe Buckingham help reunite Zende Dominguez and Paris Buckingham?

Zoe’s return is coming at a complicated time in Paris’ life. The singer recently turned down Zende’s marriage proposal claiming she’s not ready for a huge commitment. Hours after her romantic dinner with Zende, Paris locked lips with Carter.

Zende is unaware of Paris and Carter’s kiss, and the fashion designer isn’t giving up on his girlfriend. To win back Paris, Zende is enlisting the help of Zoe. By bringing her back to town, Zende hopes the kind gesture will touch Paris and convince her to give him another chance.

Yet, The Bold and the Beautiful fans can’t help but be curious about Zoe’s motive. At one time, Zoe had a crush on Zende and interfered in his and Paris’ relationship. Her meddling caused Carter to break off their engagement and further strain between her and Paris. Zoe later gave up her pursuit of Zende, but is she really over him?

The sisters reignite their rivalry

Zoe’s visit will shock Paris, who may not be happy to see her sister. Although the two settled their differences, they may reignite their sibling rivalry. With Zende and Paris’ relationship at a standstill, Zoe might take the opportunity to seduce Zende.

Also, one can’t forget Carter, who’ll play a big role in the storyline. Zoe will be surprised to learn of Paris and Carter’s kiss, and what she does with the information will be interesting. Will she tell Zende in the hope of breaking up him and Paris? Or will Zoe’s jealousy have her fighting to reclaim her ex-fiancé?

Zoe coming back to town is certainly going to create drama. The sisters’ feud will undoubtedly be tense, with Zende and Carter stuck in the middle.
