In the Friday, May 5, 2023, full episode recap of CBS’ Bold and the Beautiful, Liam tells Wyatt he has his eye on Thomas, Brooke and Taylor are happy everyone is happy, and Steffy commends Hope and Thomas turning the line around.

We also have Thursday’s B&B recap where Hope could hardly contain her pounding desires as Thomas adjusted her dress, and RJ worried about disappointing Ridge.

In Ridge’s office at Forrester Creations, Brooke tells him she hasn’t been able to stop smiling since RJ came home.

He tells his sister he’s been going to therapy and keeping his priorities straight.

He wakes up every moment with designs on his mind. That and being a good father are all he’s thinking about.

Even if Hope threw herself at him, he wouldn’t be interested.

There’s no reason for her to worry.

They hug and she thanks god he’s okay.

After she leaves, he sketches. Hope returns and tells him the numbers are off the charts. He’s happy for her.

She says this couldn’t have happened without him.

No one has understood her the way he does. There’s no limit to where they can take this.

She takes his hands and thanks goodness for him.

Steffy startles her and says that she can see her brother has really changed.

What she never suspected was that Hope would be flirting with Thomas.

“Do you have feelings for my brother?” she demands.
