In The Bold and the Beautiful recap for November 20, 2023, Bill finds Poppy oddly familiar. Is it possible they share a past? Conceivable that they might share a daughter?
Bold and the Beautiful Recap Highlights
Bill’s Poppy Puzzle
At Il Giardino, Trattoria Rustica, Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) approached a table only to discover, much to her chagrin, that the man behind the menu was Dollar Bill Spencer (Don DIamont). He’d come to tell her that her little act wasn’t fooling anyone and to put her on notice. She had better stay away, especially from Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and Finn (Tanner Novlan).
Sheila scoffed and wondered why he even cared. What investment does he have in her relationship with her son? None, none at all. It’s his granddaughter he’s particularly concerned about.
Sheila pointedly reminded Bill that she saved Kelly from drowning, so a little gratitude wouldn’t be a bad thing. In response, Bill accused the villainess of luring the girl into the ocean with candy. (HA!)
Ms. Carter then prodded Bill by wondering if he was simply jealous that she and Deacon (Sean Kanan) were making a real go of it. Must be hard to see two people so in love when he couldn’t win back his precious Katie (Heather Tom) despite his best efforts (MEOW!).
And while Bill would have normally given back as good as he got, he couldn’t help but find his attention drawn elsewhere, namely, the table catty-cornered to him. Seated there were Poppy (Romy Park) and Luna (Lisa Yamada).
Ignoring Sheila and her barbs, Billy moseyed on over and opened with the ultra-cheesy, “I couldn’t help but notice you across the room” line and followed it up with the equally cringe, “You look awfully familiar. Do we know each other?”
Forrester Creations Infighting
Over at Forrester Creations, Zende (Delon de Metz) took the momentary shuttering of Hope For The Future on the chin — “It happens” — but he had a hard time swallowing his benching in favor of RJ (Joshua Hoffman).
Ridge insisted that that wasn’t the case. Not in the least. He’s sorry that Zende is feeling like he’s being forgotten, but it’s not how the young man sees it. RJ was just automatically assigned to work with Eric (John McCook) because he was Ridge’s other son. And he’s certainly not “pushing aside every other member of family,” in order to ensure that his as long as his own kids shine.
Eric was the one who chose RJ to work with him. The way everything is being handled is in accord with Eric’s wishes. To that, Zende huffed. He didn’t believe it.
He went on to grouse beyond strange and into offensive that he was passed over in favor of Ridge’s “wayward son,” the one who actively avoided the family business, who had no desire to become a designer at the firm.
All this Zende hollered to RJ’s face, and he even went as far as to term him, “the annotated son of Brooke and Ridge.” But everybody should watch out. Zende might not have his mommy and daddy there to stick up for him, but he had no problem sticking up for himself.
Once Zende stormed out, RJ floated the idea that Zende should be clued in to what’s going on with Eric; Ridge disagreed. His brood knows. That’s good enough. Zende will get over it. Eventually.
