‘The Bold and The Beautiful’ (B&B) spoilers tease that there may be another twist in the story about little Douglas Forrester’s paternity. Could Ridge Forrester [Thorsten Kaye] turn out to be Caroline Spencer’s [Linsey Godfrey] baby daddy after all?
The now-dead Dr Wolin told Ridge that he had zero sperm count and refused to reverse his vasectomy. Ridge took the doc at his word and therefore assumed that Thomas Forrester [Pierson Fodé] had to be the father of Caroline’s baby.
But what if Wolin was wrong? Let’s consider. Even before his death, Wolin was no longer a practicing physician. That doesn’t happen to really good docs, right? Was Wolin a hot mess and a bad doctor as well as a blackmailer? Were his test results wrong?
But since everyone is working under the assumption that Thomas is the dad, what next? Obviously Thomas wants visitation and some custody rights when it comes to Douglas. But because Ridge is listed on the birth certificate, Thomas will have to establish paternity.
That means a paternity test. Caroline and Ridge will have no choice but to comply with a court order for a test based on his presumption that Thomas is the dad. But will the results surprise them all? It would break Thomas’ heart to be told Douglas is not his son.
However, it would be much better for Ridge and Caroline’s relationship if Douglas was their biological son. No matter what, though, it seems like Thomas and Ridge’s father-son relationship is doomed unless Ridge can find a way to get Thomas to forgive him.
Even though Thomas made a mistake with Caroline, Ridge and Caroline were not actively together when he slept with her. However, Ridge tried to make it out like Thomas was essentially a rapist and so didn’t deserve any rights with his son.
But Thomas didn’t know Caroline took medication – and both he and Caroline were drinking – it was just a series of unfortunate events. Ridge was just awful to Thomas, though, and it remains to be see if this fissure within the Forresters can be mended.
No matter whose son that Douglas is, this is a huge mess that needs to be cleaned up. Can Caroline and Ridge’s marriage survive? Will Thomas ever trust his father again? What do you think B&B fans? Is Douglas the son of Thomas or Ridge?
