Could it be curtains for CaRidge? After Thursday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, things are on shaky ground. And how can you not root for Thomas (Pierson Fode’)? The young Forrester is the father to Caroline’s (Linsey Godfrey) child, Douglas.
For months, Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) and Caroline have been putting on a good front to all that they are Douglas’ bio-parents. Only Ridge can’t father another child, and less than a year ago, Caroline had sex with Thomas, although the circumstances of that one night tryst were colored by pills and alchocol. That moment has also been controversial to fans of the CBS daytime drama series and has certainly dinged the character of Thomas with some fans of the series.
Now, Thomas wants to declare that Douglas is his son. He is fed up covering up the charade that Ridge wants his son to play. Several people already know the truth, and Thomas is concerned that it’s only a matter of time before others find out, too. He wants to get ahead of the situation.
In a confrontation at the Forrester mansion, Thomas informs Ridge he’s going to have his name put on a birth certificate. “It’s time for the truth to come out,” he declares. Ridge continues to disagree. Caroline arrives seeing the two Forrester men feuding over her child. Ridge tells his wife that Thomas doesn’t want to keep the secret anymore of Douglas’ paternity. Assuming Caroline will concur that the truth stay buried, Ridge is shocked when she does the exact opposite! Caroline says Thomas is right, and that they need to be honest with everyone about who truly is Douglas’ father!
So, should Thomas haul off and throw a punch at his father again for denying his rights to his son? Are you rooting for Thomas and Caroline to finally get closer to romance? Are you hoping CaRidge works through things? Watch the key scene from today’s B&B after the jump. Then, weigh-in on the paternity pickle in the comment section below!
