On today’s The Bold and the Beautiful episode, Carter Walton pulled himself away from his busy work to congratulate Thomas on a job well done.

Bold and the Beautiful Recap Highlights

In addition, Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) voiced her concerns to an incredulous Finn (Tanner Novlan) and Hope (Annika Noelle) tried to keep thoughts of Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) at bay. Now, let’s dig a little deeper into what exactly happened.

Carter Walton Has Nothing Better To Do

With the Forrester jet having landed and a bothered Hope decamping for home, Thomas headed for the office, where he was surprised to find Carter (Lawrence Saint-Victor) still toiling away.

Carter praised Thomas for a job well done. He and Hope had not only mightily impressed the international buyers but said buyers had just purchased copious amounts of stock and left a promise to order more.

Carter then good-naturedly ribbed Thomas about the “drama” that had transpired between him and Hope — and no, he didn’t mean the near kiss at the hotel in SanFran or the rub that Thomas gave Hope on the way back to L.A.

After Thomas laughed off the near miss of having to spend an entire night with Hope in the same hotel due to the jet’s mechanical issues, Carter [for some reason] began to wax lyric about the love between Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope. Thomas obviously didn’t appreciate the topic of conversation.

Bold and the Beautiful Recap: Tattle Tell

At the Cliff House, Steffy swore her hubby to secrecy [not that he actually has any friends to gossip with about the latest goings on at a fashion house], then confided how she’d spied an “intimate” moment between Hope and Thomas.

How intimate, wondered Finn (Tanner Novlan). Well, there had been touching and eye contact. Scratch that! Make it “caressing of hands” and “gazing into…eyes” and most decidedly, “not in the way a coworker or a co-parent should. No, she was gazing with desire.”

And it was Hope — and most assuredly not Thomas — who had been the one gazing with desire. And, of course, Steffy had confronted her, but no, she hadn’t gone into attack mode. “Ish.”

All that said, Steffy couldn’t help but wonder if Hope was even consciously aware of what she was doing. Then again, consciously or unconsciously, “You just don’t flirt with someone who used to be obsessed with you.”

In the end, Steffy resolved to keep an eye on the situation. She won’t let Hope get away with stymieing Thomas’s progress.

B&B Recap: Strain Game

Having been assured [threatened?] by Thomas that she would be with Liam for the rest of her life, Hope returned to the sight of wine and a selection of fruits and cheeses.

She very much approved of the setting, but Liam’s topic of conversation — which included the “formality” of him inquiring whether or not Thomas tried in on — left her wanting.

Still, she managed to curl up in Liam’s arms and think sweet thoughts of…THOMAS?! Well, Thomas and the worry that Steffy might one day blab to Liam that she *GASP* saw Hope and Thomas holding hands.
