B&B Spoilers: Psychological Reasons
Atkinson explained that it can be hard to empathize with Thomas because he is so dark. However, the actor explained that there are reasons why he behaves and thinks the way he does.
“He is a very dark person and at times he can be hard to empathize with but once you find the reasons, psychologically, why these things are happening, it becomes much less of a darkness and more of just a struggle that he’s dealing with.”

Less of a Darkness, More of a Struggle
The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers indicate that Atkinson believes that Thomas isn’t a completely bad person. That there is good in there somewhere. He has stated this before in previous interviews regarding Thomas, who is considered a villain in the soap opera world.
He also said that Thomas is “deeply flawed” but he is still a human being.
The Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: Future Forgiveness Possible?
This seems to indicate that perhaps everything Thomas does is due to mental health problems. If the character were to get counseling or treatment from a psychiatrist, could he be forgiven and reformed? With everything he has done it would be a tough sell, but crazier things have happened on soaps. To find out, keep watching the CBS daytime series.
