Fam­ily is a touchy sub­ject on Bold screens… in ev­ery sense of the word. So when Thomas For­rester (now played by Pier­son Fodé) starts doodling pic­tures of his dad Ridge’s ( Thorsten Kaye) girl­friend Caro­line (Lin­sey God­frey) on Thurs­day 18 Au­gust and fan­ta­sis­ing about kisses, view­ers will know what’s up, es­pe­cially since Caro­line is Thomas’s ex- girl­friend. But this isn’t just about de­sire… “His tor­ment comes from want­ing to prove that he is valu­able,” hints Pier­son.

HEAR ME ROAR

Thomas strides into the For­rester of­fices on Fri­day 19 Au­gust to demon­strate his de­sign skills in a bid to join the For­rester de­sign team. It’s as if a young lion has roared his way into the pride, think­ing that he can be al­pha male as Thomas makes a smirk­ing re­mark to Ridge about the mod­els flirt­ing with him in­stead of Ridge now. No won­der the old lion feels the urge to smack the cub down – Ridge re­sponds by tear­ing Thomas’s de­sign in half. “You went to Paris and what? You just got lazy?” Ridge scolds. “You want a job from me be­cause you’re my son? If you be­lieve this is the best that you can come up with, you’d be the last per­son I’d hire.”

STRIK­ING BACK

That blow to Thomas’s pride sparks the com­ing bat­tle as Thomas moves into Ridge’s ter­ri­tory the same way that Ridge once preyed on his dad Eric’s (John McCook) wife Brooke (Kather­ine Kelly Lang). If Thomas can’t win in the board­room, he is go­ing for the bed­room. On Mon­day 22 Au­gust, Thomas drops in on Caro­line to sulk and starts fan­ta­sis­ing about the two of them get­ting hot and heavy. Thomas might as­sure Brooke on Wed­nes­day 24 Au­gust, “We dated for a minute and she moved on, I moved on”, but those pas­sion­ate fan­tasies tell an­other story!

TROU­BLE COMES IN

If Ridge and Caro­line were on solid ground, Thomas wouldn’t mat­ter. But on Wed­nes­day 24 Au­gust, when Caro­line tells Ridge, “I still want to have my own child too,” Ridge ad­mits, “I can’t see my­self be­ing a father again.” That’s one of the all-time re­la­tion­ship break­ers – keep watch­ing be­cause Bold will be play­ing it with an un­ex­pected twist.
