There was a lot to be thankful for on The Bold and the Beautiful’s Thanksgiving episode which aired on Wednesday.
In what started as perhaps perceived hokey of an air show, turned out to be quite the contrary. In fact, it turned out to be an emotional rollercoaster for many of the guests. You can blame, or give applause, to Hope (Kim Matula) for concocting her Thanksgiving plan to bring the Logan and the Forrester families together and try to unite them by placing strategic place cards for the guests.
Of course, Bill (Don Diamont) was seated next to Katie (Heather Tom) and Quinn (Rena Sofer)! Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) was next to Katie! Wyatt (Darin Brooks) and Liam (Scott Clifton) were on either side of Hope! Hope asks for each guest to say something to the person to the right about why they are thankful for them. Oh boy!
The most touching moments came when it was Eric’s (John McCook) turn and he was beside Dayzee (Kristolyn Lloyd). Eric recalled how important Dayzee was to Stephanie, and from there the gathering clan holds hands and pays homage to the late Stephanie as the camera pans to her picture on the wall.
Later, it was Heather Tom (Katie) who provided the most emotional impact on the episode as Brooke tries to remind her alienated sister about how they are family no matter what. And next, when its Katie turns, she wants to pass on saying something nice about Bill. Ultimately, she does say something about him being the father of her son, Will. Bill is very uncomfortable being seated next to all these women he has had relationships with and tries to say something about each of them, which he does, but not so well! Wyatt tells Hope how special she is, and how he is glad she walked in to his life that day when she snapped pictures of him on the mountain. But Hope in turn, says something about Liam and how much she is loved by everyone at the table!
Kudos to The Bold and the Beautiful for an episode that could have been very sappy, but was heartfelt instead! What was your favorite comment by the guests at the Thanksgiving table? Did you enjoy the episode and the nod to Stephanie? Comment below!
