B&B’s Matthew Atkinson On Gaining Custody of Douglas: “Thomas Just Wants to Take His Rightful Place”

Photo: CBS

On The Bold and the Beautiful, Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) wants to be more of an active father to his son, Douglas (Django Ferri), who has been living with Hope (Annika Noelle) and Liam (Scott Clifton).

When confronted with this news, Hope is not too happy, because she could lose being mother to the little boy, who she has come to love as her own.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest (on newsstands now), Atkinson shared on the story: “Thomas just wants to take his rightful place. He’s not saying they are no longer a family. It’s just the opposite.  He’s not prying Douglas away from Hope.  He knows Douglas has bonded with Hope, Liam and Beth, and he believes they can all make it work.”

The question is, will Thomas resort to extreme measures as he has in the past to get what he wants, or will he work this out with Hope and Liam?

Check out the latest promo for this week’s action on B&B below.

Now let us know, do you want Thomas to have more of a relationship with his son, Douglas? Should the boy live between all three ‘parents’? Should Douglas fight for solo custody? Comment below.

Why would he go thru all that hoopla giving Hope custody and signing all those papers to want it reverse everything
On the other hand I can see why they sorased Douglas character for this storyline……..

Bring back the Hope doll! This B&B storytelling is tiresome. Characters grow but never evolve. Everyone is so sanctimonious yet guilty of as much or more of what they accuse others. It is difficult to root for anyone here. If they are not just stupid, they are loathsome. This is supposed to be a high class family in a high glass world. I don’t feel it much anymore.

Thomas should not even be given custody of a goldfish after what he did to Hope

Douglas is Thomas’ son. Hoep does NOT have the right to make final decisions for Douglas’ life. Thomas gave her leeway but enough is enough.

Thomas just wants to take his rightful place really sit down Thomas you’re a hot mess under this writing when Pierson Rode played Thomas the character was a hero and upstanding guy this Thomas is written as an emotional cripple who shouldn’t have custody of a Barbie and ken doll set

I get what you are saying. The writers turned him into a wreck so he’d gave to give his son away, so to speak. He is better now and in a better position to be with and raising his own son. Why should Hope get to keep this kid she isn’t even related to in order to keep her daughter amused or whatever comment she made yesterday. Sorry, blood is thicker than water and Thomas should not have to go to court to get his own son back.

I do agree with you but why do I feel like the writers will have him go off the rails again he is the one who started the domino theory with steffy and finn by listening to Sheila

I agree on all counts but I do feel that in his present state, Thomas needs to be raising his own son, not just for himself but for both of them. There are plenty of family members to help care for the boy !if Thomas goes off the rails again. That boy should be visiting Hope and her family not visiting his own dad.

Violet…On paper re bio father maybe he should have his son back. But there is no long-standing redemption stories on soaps. Look at what they are doing with another screwup, Deacon.. So maybe visitation rights can change so Thomas gets more time with him, but for consistency and stability in his life he should stay with the Hope/Liam/sister family. I don’t trust that Thomas won’t revert to some of his old bad mental problems.

rose, I guess we can’t agree on this one. I feel Thomas has now become the stable and responsible person he needs to be to raise his own son. How can you even compare Deacon and Thomas? Look at Deacon today and years ago, he never changes, he shouldn’t even have to think twice about harboring and Douglas Sheila. Sorry, got off track. I just feel that Douglas shouldn’t be kept from his dad and family. He isn’t even related to Hope and her clan and there are plenty of his own family ready and willing to help Thomas with… Read more »

Thomas should get his son back and he should have full custody Douglas will still get to see Hope and Hope will get to spend time with Douglas but it’s past time and Douglas needs his dad

Boy, how about that little meeting with Taylor and Brooke showing up unannounced. I can’t stand either one of these hags but Brooke telling Taylor that she wouldn’t ALLOW Thomas to take his own son back was something else.
I’d love seeing these two in a real knockdown, drag out fight. The worst of it is the Booby Prize they are really fighting over!

Don’t these people work anymore??!! They show them from home to home wandering around arguing with each other about who should be with whom?! They used to show them working much more before & the only ones who stop by the office are Ridge, Eric & Zende & Quinn/Carter when they don’t play hoodie! Isn’t Finn active at the hospital yet? I hope Sheila gets royally creamed somehow. I like the new Taylor. I’m only a 4-5 year vet but Brooke’s “I will not allow” line makes me cringe. The new Douglas stinks. He needs to go back to acting… Read more »

You make a lot of good points. They had a toddler girl one day, playing Beth, hated the camera and would only cling to Hope for dear life.
I was wondering myself if Liam ever gos to work or just sits around with Brooke all day trying to figure out how to stick it to Thomas. Iam so sick of the whole show, but I just can’t stop watching.I hear something really good is coming up with Ridge and if true will really upset everyone’s apple cart, so I’ll hang in there.

GH’s Avery Pohl on Esme’s Return: “She’s Using Her Time Wisely and Waiting For The Right Moment to Strike”

Next week, Esme Prince (Avery Pohl) is back lurking around Port Charles.  When viewers last saw Esme, she went over the parapet at Wyndemere during a showdown with Ava (Maura West).

For months, GH fans have been eagerly awaiting to see just how and when Esme would return to get revenge, or find out what she is after.  From the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, it looks like the wait is over.

In dishing with SOD on her on-screen return, Pohl shared that Esme is, “essentially on the run.”  However, she adds, “Esme is aware of the circumstances she’s put herself in.  She is aware that people are going to to be after her.  She’s not dumb.”

Just what’s in store for Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Ava, Trina (Tabyana Ali), Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) now that Esme is back?

As Esme’s plan begins to reveal itself, Pohl shares: “Before she goes right back into the thick of it, she scopes things out.  She’s using her time wisely and waiting for the right moment to strike.”

So, are you glad that finally Avery Pohl is back on GH as Esme? What do you hope happens next? Who do you think is Esme’s biological mother? Do you want her to get her comeuppance from the Cassadine clan and Trina? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Mishael Morgan Reveals Why She’s Taken ‘A Bit of a Step Back’ From Y&R and Gone on Recurring Status

This past June, we all celebrated the groundbreaking victory of The Young and the Restless‘ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair) as the first Black actress to ever win in the Lead Actress in a Drama Series category during the 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

In the months that followed, Mishael has not been seen as much on the top-rated CBS daytime drama, plus when fans noticed she was no longer in the opening main credits, it got them wondering just what is Morgan’s status with the show.

Finally today, via video on her Instagram story, Mishael shared some news after finishing her day of taping in Genoa City.

The Emmy-winner revealed she has indeed gone on recurring status with the show: “I just wrapped my last scenes back at Y&R, and I just wanted to let the cat out of the bag a little bit.  A lot of people have noticed that my name is not on the main credits anymore, and I wanted everybody to know that it was my decision.  I decided, actually, back in December, that I wanted to take a bit of a step back from the show.  I just felt like at this point in my life and this point in my career, I wanted to mix things up a little bit. But Y&R will always be home. I have so appreciated this safe place to land that they have given me, so I know that I can be back. They are like family to me, and coming back just reminds me of that.”

Morgan also thanked the loyal viewers and her followers expressing, “I’m so appreciative of you guys, and all the fans who have supported me along this Y&R journey. But I’m still on it, I’m still going to be recurring, so you’ll still catch me in Genoa City.”

The talented star ended with a tease of projects and roles to come, telling her fans to, “Keep looking out for new things.”

So will you miss not seeing Mishael as much on Y&R?  Are you exciting to see what roles and projects she gets involved with next? Are you glad she is still recurring with the show and will continue to make appearances in stories? Comment below.
