‘Bold and the Beautiful’ (B&B) Spoilers finds that we all know that Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) has proven himself willing to go to any lengths to get what he wants. He even made sure that Emma Barber ended up in the grave because of it. However, that was all turned on its head by little Douglas Forrester (Henry Joseph Samiri) when Thomas slipped up and revealed the truth in an overheard phone conversation. Little Douglas wasted no time in getting the truth out there so that Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) and new Mom Hope Logan (Annika Noelle) could finally be reunited with their baby.

However, what little Douglas didn’t entirely realize is that his Aunt Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) was Baby Beth’s (River Davidson and Madeline Valdez) adoptive step mom. Or rather, he does, but he doesn’t realize the emotional ramifications of such a thing yet. (Give him a break, he’s only 4.) Steffy took this baby in thinking that it was all hers, that she was Kelly’s sister and her new daughter. She thought that her baby had been adopted through perfectly legal means through a connection that her Mother had at work and everyone trusts their own Mother, right?

Now, Mom Taylor Hayes (Hunter Tylo) couldn’t have read Dr. Reese Buckingham’s (Wayne Brady) mind when the idea of Steffy adopting a baby was put forward. She didn’t know about his gambling debts nor how his crafty little mind worked. Some may argue “but they were datiing!”, that doesn’t automatically make anyone obligated to tell the truth about anything.
Look at Thomas, he lied to Hope for months about the knowledge of her baby being alive and they were dating. Also, a good question in all this is where is Taylor? The last we saw of her she was encouraging Steffy to get with Liam, it’s nothing new for Taylor to disappear into thin air but it just seems kind of strange that she wouldn’t be seen at her son’s wedding! But I digress, that’s another article for another time.
But how is Steffy going to feel in the upcoming weeks concerning the handoff of baby Beth? Her knee-jerk reaction when she learned of Beth’s true identity says that she’s definitely not going to like it, but do her genetics point to a potentially much darker reaction? As we all know, both Ridge and Taylor don’t have a history of being the most stable people.

Taylor was a schemer from the beginning and Ridge suffered from entitlement for a very, very long time. It wouldn’t be too far of a stretch if Steffy did something ripped straight from the headlines in order to get her baby back – or keep her in the first place, for that matter.
How could that happen? She could use Hope’s ‘inability to provide a stable home environment’ as an excuse in a court battle, but that may not hold up since the whole reason Hope was bouncing from man to man was because of the loss of her baby. A baby who, has been found to be perfectly alive and well, just illegally adopted by Steffy. In a court of law, it would be Steffy who’d be the one who’d end up looking bad. However, what if she took a page from her brother Thomas’s book and started engineering things to make Hope look like a bad Mom?
This might take awhile, but since Hope is married to Thomas and is actively involved with little Douglas’s life then she could choose to go through that channel to make it look like Hope was some sort of bad influence on him, therefore making the judge think twice about uprooting baby ‘Phoebe’ from the only home she had ever known. Again, this would be the same judge who would look and see that the little girl had been illegally adopted and that would also make them twice about awarding custody to Steffy. So any evidence provided by little Douglas would have to be some 24K evidence.
‘Bold and the Beautiful’ Spoilers: Thomas and Steffy
Again, in taking a leaf from Thomas’s book, what if Steffy decided to do something absolutely desperate. What if, instead of handing the baby off to Hope, she made off with her instead? That sounds like it would be par for the course in the Forrester genepool, after all, Thomas almost kidnapped Hope and its not like Baby Beth can vocalize her own decisions yet. She also trusts Steffy and has thought of her as ‘Mom’ since the beginning (even though she called Hope ‘Mama’ at the wedding… what?), so chances are the baby wouldn’t kick up a fuss even if she were outright kidnapping her. Maybe she would take her and Kelly back to Paris in hopes of not being found there. But would Steffy actually go that far?
