I have been waiting for this characters return! I hope he is closer with Hope than Steffy and Thomas! This should be an interesting dynamic as both Hope and Steffy are his sisters! Keep him away from Paris!

Um, OK. It’s about time. This young character is due attention. He is the only child of the overage Romeo and Juliet. Who will RJ be like more, his mother or father? I’d like to see a strong me touring relationship between Eric and RJ. Maybe he will somehow be different than his cousins/half-siblings/step-siblings.

I also hope RJ will be different than Hope, Steffy and Thomas and maybe been away for so long and been by himself helped RJ mature.As for which parent RJ could take after maybe he’ll be a mix of Ridge and Brooke.

all interesting but who is there in his age group the show needs a younger set and paris is just not cutting it

Yes, agreed! Maybe they will SORAS Will Spencer who is also off at boarding school and have a romantic LGBTQ relationship. This is where it gets too challenging by not having additional families involved (I miss the Avants). Sheila’s granddaughter is Lucy over at Y and R via Daisy and Daniel, but I cannot think of any other possible youth that are not cousins of RJ since he is connected to both Brooke Logan and Ridge Forrester.

Will is also his cousin unfortunately.I just hope they don’t make his character a brat wanting mom and dad to reunite

Will and RJ are cousins (Katie and Brooke are sisters, remember?) so I don’t see an LGBTQ story with those two.

I responded a few days ago recognizing the Logan connection with Katie

I can’t wait to see RJ back and put the family straight and take over the fashion business!!!

Please keep him away from Paris!

Who else can he date? He’s related to everyone else!

RJ is related to everybody else, and above I completely forgot that Will is Katie’s son, thus another cousin via Brooke (I was simply thinking about the Spencer side)

I can’t wait to see RJ’s return because i’m sure there’ll be conflict between him and other characters like Steffy and Thomas because i could see the 3 of them fighting over who’ll be the heir apparent at Forrester Creations.

Bring Jack Marone on! Isn’t it about time Jack needs to seek out his mother?

I dont ever want Ridge and Brooke together too many back and forth in the family Taylor and Ridge should be together. For their family

It’s about time!

It’s about time, he came back. His other siblings are always there.

RJ is so over acting and he is so “eaten up” with his “guns” it’s pitiful. He shows them off with short sleeves all rolled up and displays them proudly. Get over yourself and learn how to act!!!!

Good grief, you do realize that he is dressed by the costuming department, right? He “shows them off” and “displays them proudly”? He’s a young guy who likes to work out and has a muscular physique as a result. But he’s not choosing the clothes he wears on the show so blame(?) the costumers for the short sleeves.

Some people just don’t know whats real or Reel. Funny, they actually think they get paid the big bucks to just march in there every day, wearing whatever they please and say whatever they want, etc. Cracks me up!
