The Bold and the Beautiful recap for Tuesday, June 18 features a day of awkward encounters. Steffy and Flo were forced to play nice and Thomas’s grand gesture just about floored Hope.
A Startling Surprise
Plans for a picnic at the beach went off the rails when Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and Flo (Katrina Bowden) found out what their men were really up to. Instead of a leisurely day, they plotted to bring the women together.
Talk about a mess! Steffy keeps getting bombarded with a birth mom who was supposed to go away. Instead, she’s now a Logan, living in LA, and working at FC. It’s all way too close to home, never mind her coming into her actual house. However, she relented and agreed to the meetup.
Flo also thought of the lunch as a disaster. Wyatt (Darin Brooks) had no consideration for Flo’s feelings about seeing Steffy or he baby.
Had she actually been the birth mom this would have been a terrible surprise to spring on her. Luckily, she’s just a kidnapper and eventually also agreed to go.
A Shaky Meeting
Tensions ran high at the cliff house when the women came face to face. To make things worse, Phoebe woke up within minutes and Flo was forced to come eye to eye with the child she helped steal from her very own cousin.
Meanwhile, Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) spent some time recharging their marriage but the talk of their future quickly turned to chatter about their kids.
They were both worried about Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) but for very different reasons. Ridge worried his son would never heal and Brooke worried he was obsessing over Hope to a shockingly unhealthy degree.
Another Big Move
Sadly, Brooke was right. Thomas called Hope to the main office to give her a huge surprise.
He pulled a very Ridge move and presented Hope with a gorgeous gown. It was enough to almost make Hope melt. He leaned in to kiss her and this time, Hope did not immediately pull away.
