Thomas has once again earned the ire of pretty much everyone he is related to on The Bold and The Beautiful. The ink of his previous devious acts of framing Brooke had not even dried, and he already fired a fresh shot at his connections. It’s almost as if he deliberately wants to turn everyone against him and won’t stop at anything. He is currently at was with Hope and Liam to take away Douglas from them. In the quest of it, he has also alienated his sister Steffy. However, The Bold and The Beautiful may have dropped a tiny hint at Thomas’s changing fortune! He might just be on the verge on winning Ridge’s forgiveness.
Ridge Turned His Back On Thomas, But For How long?
Parent trapping makes for some really cute storytelling in children’s movies. However, neither The Bold and The Beautiful is meant for children, nor is Thomas a child. Thus, his version of parent-trapping Ridge and Taylor into getting married was awfully devious and made us balk at him. Likewise, when Ridge learned that Thomas had framed Brooke and lied to him, he was furious. He couldn’t believe he had divorced Brooke over Thomas’ manipulations. He felt betrayed by his son.
Thus, he not only unleashed his rage on Thomas but also immediately disowned his son on The Bold and The Beautiful. He made it clear that he didn’t want to have anything to do with him anymore. Moreover, Ridge ensured that Thomas was thrown out of the Forrester Mansion and Forrester Fashion. But it’s been a few months since that. Ridge has had a lot of time away from Los Angeles that he has hopefully invested in soul searching. Soon enough, he will return home and eventually come face to face with Thomas. The Valentine’s Day preview video for The Bold and The Beautiful featured an old clip of Ridge and Thomas sharing a warm hug. We wonder if this is a hint at what’s to come next!
Ridge Forgives Thomas On The Bold And The Beautiful
Ridge Forrester is not a negative character on The Bold and The Beautiful. However, that doesn’t mean that he hasn’t made any mistakes in his life. Moreover, he is a father and for how long really can a parent turn their back on their child? Ridge’s soul-searching must have calmed him down by now. So, once he returns to Los Angeles, he may not be as mad at Thomas as he initially was. Thus, when Thomas approaches him for forgiveness, he might at least be willing to listen to his son.
Eventually, Ridge may realize that he had been asking for chances from Brooke and Taylor for so long on The Bold and The Beautiful, and if Thomas is doing the same to him, he might as well relent. Thomas may assure his father that he will try to do better and turn a new leaf. He may insist that he has learned his lesson and won’t ever repeat those mistakes. Thomas’ pleas may melt Ridge’s heart, and he might forgive his son on The Bold and The Beautiful. Moreover, Ridge might take Thomas under his wing and help him in trying to make amends to everyone else too. Perhaps this would bring Thomas on the straight and narrow, and that’s something he desperately needs.
Do you think it would be fair on Ridge’s part to forgive Thomas after everything he has done? Please tell us in the comments. Meanwhile, stay tuned to CBS over weekdays to follow Thomas and Ridge’s story on The Bold and The Beautiful.
