This is one week on The Bold and the Beautiful that you simply cannot miss! The lives of the Forrester, Spencers, and Logans will be forever changed when a character meets his or her maker on the half-hour soap.
The Bold and the Beautiful – Building A Mystery
The newest issue of Soap Opera Digest, dated April 12, 2021, on sale now, previews the upcoming storyline in which a BB character will head off to that great soap opera in the sky!
“It will turn into a very complex mystery as the facts of the incident are unraveled and discovered throughout the course of the upcoming weeks ahead,” Bradley Bell, executive producer/head writer, previews. “There will be surprises. Not everything is how it seems.”
BB’s done whodunits over the years with shooting victims Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) and Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery). In those instances, the victims lived, however. BB’s playing this one close to the vest. No word on specifically who dies or how that person will perish!
Bell says it’s difficult to kill off a character as he has great relationships with the show’s cast members, however, it’s critical in drama to tell powerful stories.
The article foreshadows that one of the following will die: Finn (Tanner Novlan), Thomas (Matthew Atkinson), Shauna (Denise Richards), Katie (Heather Tom), Vinny (Joe LoCicero), or Flo (Katrina Bowden).
It’s a loss to be without any of these dynamic characters. Why? Consider the following:
Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) has finally found happiness with Finn. Would the fates be so callous to take away the man she loves and the father of her unborn child?
While many have wanted to take out Thomas in the past, he’s shown recently that he’s turned over a new leaf and only wants what’s best for Hope (Annika Noelle). Thomas is a legacy character and a leading man. It’d be hard to imagine BB without him.
Flo and Shauna have recently made amends with those they’ve been in conflict. Flo not only became a Logan (legally), but she’s in line to become a Spencer, too, now that her beau Wyatt (Darin Brooks) has proposed marriage. Likewise, Shauna has made up with her pal Quinn (Rena Sofer). Either of these two dying would be powerfully ironic.
In many ways, Katie is the glue of the Logan clan. Could it survive Katie not being around? Will she have survived a heart and a kidney transplant only to meet an untimely end?
Vinny has made a lot of enemies lately, but the secret he was keeping related to Steffy’s paternity test results is no longer a secret. Vinny’s an obvious choice — but perhaps he’s too obvious!
