The Bold and the Beautiful recap for Friday, May 31 features the end of a marriage, a sibling rivalry, and the bombshell truth about baby Beth. Xander’s world was rocked, Liam’s life fell apart, and Thomas was ready to pick up all the pieces.
The Harshest Reality
Zoe (Kiara Barnes) tried to shut the conversation down but Xander (Adain Bradley) was not having it. He demanded the truth and he got it – ALL OF IT! Boy, he did not see any of this coming!
He heard the whole shocking tale of Reese’s lies, the illegal adoption, the baby’s new mother, and most of all, why everyone in the know keeping mum about Phoebe’s real mom.
Zoe’s excuses were not enough for Xander. Grief, rage, and deep sorrow for Hope overtook him. He demanded they go to Hope and tell her the truth!
Meanwhile, Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope spent one last night together as a romantic send off to their love story. Neither of them truly wanted it to end but Hope still saw it as the only way.
The two took a walk down memory lane through some of the greatest moments of their lives together. Their first wedding, their last wedding, their trips, and the life they thought they would have.
Liam tried to use the time to show Hope they are worth fighting for but he knew better. This was just a last goodbye a dream that will never be.
The Most Manipulative Man
Over at the cliff house, Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) tried to talk some sense into Thomas to no avail. He made his intentions crystal clear — once Hope divorces Liam it is game on! Steffy did not agree with his tactics but she quickly realized there was no stopping him.
