The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoilers document that Douglas Forrester’s (Henry Joseph Samiri) has been in flux since his mother tragically died. Further change is in the wind, as his parents disagree about custody issues.

Thomas’ intentions then and now are as calculated as they appear. Hope finally had enough and is refusing to work with Thomas at Forrester Creations. Thomas is pursuing custody as a result.
