In the Friday, March 24, 2023, full episode recap of CBS’ Bold and the Beautiful, Hope and Thomas talk about how great it is to work together again, Bill wants this Sheila situation resolved, and Sheila shares her doubts with Deacon.

We also have Thursday’s B&B recap where Ridge and Bill bickered about how he handled the proposal, and Sheila told Deacon about it and wondered if it’s too good to be true.

In Deacon’s den, Sheila shows him the black diamond ring Bill gave her. “It’s black like Spencer’s heart,” Deacon says. She can’t believe this is happening.

Sheila thinks that Bill really loves her. Deacon is shocked he didn’t slip a prenup into the ring case.

“I’m going to be free and I’m going to be filthy rich! I really have to wonder if this is really Bill Spencer,” she says. Deacon is confused.

She’s realized this is all a little too amazing. It feels like the real deal.

Sheila reminds Deacon she cares about him, but this is everything she’s ever wanted. Yet, she can’t help but think Bill has been “compromised” somehow.

Deacon tells her how intoxicating she is. She senses there is something missing with Bill.

“Like a brain, a conscience, maybe a soul?” he wonders. If the Prince of Darkness wants to marry her without a prenup, that should tell her something.

He urges her not to overthink this., If Bill makes her happy, that’s where she should be.

At Bill’s, he paces and talks to “Dressmaker” Ridge over the phone. He can’t stand another moment with Sheila so the proposal he made better work.

Ridge urges him to hang in because this is almost over. They bicker about Bill having to listen to jokes from a man in a “samurai bun” and Bill doubles up on his vow to take Sheila down.

This is driving Bill crazy. Ridge thinks he was crazy already.

Bill calls Sheila and she tells him she’s still processing things. She’s speechless and doesn’t know what to say. He tells her to get home so they can plan their future.

Back at Deacon’s, he and Sheila are both still shocked by the proposal. He gives her a hug and says he will never forget her but she’s got to go and make her future.
