In The Bold and the Beautiful recap for October 25, 2023, lovelorn Charlie found lots in common with a visitor from Genoa City.
Bold and the Beautiful Recap Highlights
In addition, Eric’s health continued to decline, RJ resolved to put on a brave face, and Katie encouraged her sister to accentuate the positives. Now, let’s dig a little deeper into what exactly happened.
B&B Recap: The Start Of Something Brilliant
Try as he might — and boy did he try — Charlie (Dick Christie) couldn’t interest Pam (Alley Mills) in attending the upcoming fashion showdown. She had to stay in and wash her hair *err* bake lemon bars. And no, they couldn’t wait. In fact, she was so preoccupied with sweet treats that she couldn’t even return Charlie’s pathetic “Miss you.” No wonder he collapsed onto a nearby chair and blubbered, “I’m such a loser when it comes to love.”
Meanwhile, maid-cum-receptionist-cum-manager of a coffee house, Esther Valentine (Kate Linder) and fashionista Lauren Fenmore (Tracey Bregman), arrived at Forrester Creations. The former was just itching to meet the great Eric Forrester (John McCook) and couldn’t stop clucking about all the Forrester Originals that her former employer, Mrs. Chancellor, used to wear.
After making the acquaintance of lovely Luna (Lisa Yamada), Lauren headed in for a private discussion with Eric while Esther remained behind. Her chit-chatting with Luna was interrupted by a slightly frazzled RJ (Joshua Hoffman) — of whom Esther was a big fan — leaving her with nothing better to do than tidy up Pam and Donna’s (Jennifer Gareis) shared worktop.
Ever vigilante, Charlie thought he’d spotted a thief but instead learned you can stop the woman from professional maiding, but she’ll always maid in her spare time. Charlie liked that about Esther. He’s also a compulsive cleaner.
Soon, Esther was pulled away from the man who’d clearly charmed her (despite that little misunderstanding) and met the great Eric Forrester. Despite himself, Eric rather enjoyed Esther’s fawning, and he revealed that he shared her admiration of Katherine.
The Bold and the Beautiful Recap: Wishful Thinking
Across the hall, Luna saw to it that the pressing problem with the tariff classification codes was being handled before turning her attention to RJ.
As expected, he was still worried about Eric. The tremors have gotten worse, and now there’s a pretty persistent cough that’s cropped up. But the young man would be darned if his grandpa’s passion and raw belief in his success hadn’t rubbed off just a bit. Surely, this was a sign of good times to come.
Unfortunately, opposite RJ’s hopes for the future (pun intended), Eric found himself unable to grasp some nearby fabric, and his latest bout of coughing brought up even more blood.
B&B Recap: Sound Advice
Over at the Forrester mansion, Katie (Heather Tom) floated the idea that Eric could beat the odds and defy the doctor’s prognosis. After all, she did. Moreover, Donna should adopt Eric’s “live till you die” mindset and savor every single second she has with him until the bitter end. Donna could but agree with her wise sister/medical marvel.
