Stress and frustration is about to be the name of the game over at the cabin on The Bold and the Beautiful considering Hope’s decision to bring Thomas back on her line as lead designer. She had told Liam that she would tell Steffy and her brother that she wasn’t willing to work with him again only to go back on her word on Friday, March 10.

She’d asked to speak with Thomas alone after Brooke and Taylor gave their opinions on what her choice should be. Brooke wanted to make sure her daughter’s decision took into account how it would affect her home life considering how much Liam despises Thomas.

Taylor didn’t want Liam’s feelings to take precedent over what would be best for Hope for the Future. She also pressed that she wouldn’t be advocating so strongly for her son if he weren’t putting in the work to do better and be better. Not only did she sit in on a therapy session with him, she’s aware of how this could reflect on her relationship with Brooke and she wouldn’t be willing to put stress on her friendship in a scenario where Thomas was half stepping.

Ultimately, however, the decision lay with Hope and after working herself up to making the offer she knew would upset her husband, she asked Thomas to once again partner with her. She doesn’t want to give up her line. It’s her life’s work and so many people depend on it, Hope didn’t want to see it be cut when she could do something to stop that from happening.

The Bold and the Beautiful recap (March 10)

When Liam learns of what his wife did, he’s going to be shocked. He’d spent Friday’s episode telling his brother that he’d felt like he’d overstepped his bounds in his discussion with Hope. Wyatt assured Liam that he was well within his rights to voice his opinion as all he wants is for Hope to be safe and neither of them believe that can happen with Thomas in the picture.

They both believe that she’d be able to figure something out if Steffy really chose to move forward on her threat to scrap Hope’s brand. Still, Liam felt like a caveman for asserting himself like that and pushing her to choose him and the stability of their family when he knows she’s put so much thought and care into her line.

He’s going to feel less like a caveman and more like a doormat when he finds out Hope betrayed his trust and faith in her word. What may soften the blow, or might not since it also means even more Thomas in their lives, is that Douglas decided he wants to come back to the cabin to live them. Shocking, I know, considering there was no build.

He’d been at Forrester Creations because he had plans with his dad, but had been waiting with Paris before they walked in on his grandmothers, Brooke and Taylor, chatting in the multi-purpose office everyone works out of at the fashion firm.

The two were happy to see him and let slip that his parents may be working together once more. When the three went to the main office, he ran in smiling and hugged his mom and dad. Douglas was overjoyed to learn that they’d buried the hatchet and he asked if the two could be friends again. It seems like they may be on the way to doing that though Thomas does recognize this is his last chance with Hope.

Seeing his mom so happy prompted Douglas to say that he wanted to come back home. Of course, the news made Hope ecstatic but it was clear, though he was smiling, Thomas was wistful because he wants his son to live with him and had hoped he’d be his choice.

We’ll have to see where the soap goes from here but I suspect things won’t be settled over at the cabin and the Spencers also have to contend with Sheila, too. Liam and Wyatt expressed concern over their father and the life he’s building with their nemesis. Poor Liam, he can’t seem to catch a break. Until next time, Bold fans. Stay beautiful!
