He used to be this sweet kid, but now Thomas Forrester has shown a real dark side to himself on The Bold And The Beautiful. If he’s found guilty over causing Emma’s death, little Douglas might soon be without either of his parents!
The show has made him a real bad boy! We can see why. Every soap opera needs an antagonist. Quinn (Rena Sofer), Bill (Don Diamont), and Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) have all shifted to the back burner in terms of committing dastardly deeds. Someone had to pick up the torch!
Are you glad that BB made Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) such a baddie? Soap Hub posed this question to the show’s fans. Read on the results!
The Dark Side
A little over 50% of you say you’re glad that Thomas has become evil. It’s easy to see why you voted this way. First off, Atkinson has really sunk his teeth into the role of the show’s current master manipulator.
Tricking his son, Douglas (Henry Joseph Samiri), into proposing to Hope (Annika Noelle)? No problem. Drugging Liam’s (Scott Clifton) drink? Easy as pie. Watching Thomas connive is a guilty pleasure!
Nice Guys Finish Last
The rest of you, just under 50%, say that you prefer Thomas as a White Knight — not a Darth Vader wannabe. The guy is handsome, loaded with charm, muscles, and money!
If he really wanted to get a mom for his son then he wouldn’t have to go around spiking drinks and seeing how well Douglas can act! Wouldn’t Sally (Courtney Hope) have made a better choice to be Thomas’ next partner? Thomas truly cared about her. Caroline (Linsey Godfrey) wanted Thomas to be happy. She likely would have endorsed a Thomas/Sally reunion!
Darkness For The Future
Thomas will eventually be found out, we suspect. In the meantime, he’s having a lot of fun bullying, drugging, manipulating, and scheming! How far will he go to get what he wants? Stay tuned to find out! The Bold And The Beautiful airs weekdays on CBS. Check local listings for air times.
