Traditionally, soaps air big climax storylines during specific months when advertisers pay close attention to the ratings — these are known as “sweeps” periods. Here’s what The Bold and the Beautiful has planned for the upcoming “May Sweeps!”
According to published reports, Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) is back from his shooting ordeal meaner than ever! Bill uses Justin (Aaron D. Spears) and unwitting pawns Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and Wyatt (Darin Brooks) to make Steffy his own!
But Steffy’s not ready to give herself to Bill anytime soon. She’s hoping that her pregnancy will bring her and Liam (Scott Clifton) back together, but a surprise revelation about Liam’s relationship with Hope (Annika Noelle) may change all that!
Also, Taylor (Hunter Tylo) and Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) will spar over their respective daughters. There’s lots of history between these two over Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) so you can expect the showdowns will be explosive!
Even if Brooke and Taylor were not in conflict over Hope and Steffy, these two have plenty to fight about. Throughout the ’90s and into the 2000s, they traded off having the title of Mrs. Ridge Forrester!
Will True Love Win?
Katie (Heather Tom) and Wyatt, arguably B&B’s most adorable duo, have faced their share of hurdles lately.
Bill has threatened Wyatt’s future if he goes ahead and marries his ex-wife. (Gee, why is it okay for Bill to go after Steffy, his daughter-in-law, but Wyatt can’t marry his ex-step-mom? Especially since Wyatt didn’t grow up with Bill as his dad or knowing Katie in any kind of maternal way!)
The couple’s plan has been to make Bill think that they’ve split, but will that really work?
Bill always has the option of pitting Liam against Wyatt and he’ll likely add Will to the mix once he’s old enough to understand what’s going on in the Spencer family dynasty!
