Liam is Outraged When He Catches Hope Straddling Thomas’ Lap Right After Brooke Has Warned Her About Bad Boys

In the Wednesday, April 5, 2023, full episode recap of CBS’ Bold and the Beautiful, Wyatt and Liam wonder if Ridge will fire Thomas, Brooke tells Hope she’s glad she didn’t pick the bad boy, and Thomas insists he’s changed.

We also have Tuesday’s B&B recap where Liam and Hope felt queasy as Wyatt asked Bill for romantic details about Sheila and Ridge assumed Taylor and Brooke got romantic.

At Forrester, Brooke and Hope hug, happy that Sheila can never terrorize them again.

They are amazed by the sacrifices Bill and Ridge made for them.

Hope asks how Taylor is taking all of this. Brooke says things are still great with her.

Her daughter wonders if that will change now that Ridge is back.

Brooke says that they have committed to choosing themselves.

Most of her life, she has chosen the wrong man, like Deacon. She’s choosing herself now.

Taking her daughter’s hand, she tells her how happy she is that she hasn’t been drawn to the bad boy. Hope forces a smile.

Brooke is amazed by how principled and moralistic her daughter is.

She admires her so so much. Sometimes she even wonders how she can be her daughter.

As Brooke starts rehashing her own sex life, her daughter stops her.

Brooke has always gone after the wrong man. “I’m glad you’re not like me that way,” she says.

Thomas visits his father in the main office.

Focusing on the past is not something he wants to do. Instead, he wants to focus on the future and be the kind of son that he and his family can be proud of.

He knows the success of the line depends on Hope trusting him and he thinks they are getting back to that.

Thomas promises he’s changed and doesn’t have his old feelings for her.
