Eric Forrester is indeed the patriarch on The Bold and the Beautiful. He not only plays a paternal figure to characters on the show, but the man actually has lots of children, many of whom aren’t on the canvas. At least one of them is due for a return!
The Bold and the Beautiful Polling
Which of Eric’s (John McCook) offspring should pop up at the Forrester mansion to visit their dear dad? Soap Hub posed this question to viewers — here is what you had to say.
A Thorne By Any Other Name
Eric’s firstborn, Thorne (last played by Ingo Rademacher), received the most votes, earning over 34% of the total ballots cast. Thorne’s survived some big challenges over the last few years, losing his daughter Aly (Ashlyn Pearce) and getting a divorce from Katie (Heather Tom). Just as it would be good for Eric to have Thorne around, it’d also be nice for Thorne to be around family.
Rick (Jacob Young) came in second with 30% of your vote. The Forrester heir has been known to want to grab the reins at the family fashion company. Given that other family members are going through assorted dramas, Rick might see an opportunity to make a power grab. We still haven’t learned why he and Maya (Karla Mosley) split, so Rick returning sets the stage for an overdue explanation.
A Doctor In The House (Of Forrester)
Finn (Tanner Novlan) can’t handle all the medical emergencies on the show, so maybe it’s time Bridget (Ashley Jones) moves back to town on a more permanent basis say 22% of you. As the mother of little Logan Knight (who has one of the coolest names in soaps), Bridget could help usher in a new generation of characters. It’d also be good for someone to keep an eye on Quinn (Rena Sofer) just in case she hasn’t totally reformed!
Eric has two living daughters, Felicia (Lesli Kay) and Kristen (Tracy Melchior), with the late Stephanie (Susan Flannery). They received, respectively, 9% and 5% of your votes. Kristen returning would reunite her not only with her father, but her son Zende (Delon de Metz), and she could weigh in on his love life.
As for Felicia, wouldn’t it be great to see her square off against Quinn the next time she starts to manipulate members of Eric’s family? Stay tuned to see which of Eric’s children comes home next! The Bold and the Beautiful airs weekdays on CBS. Check local listings for air times.
