THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Caroline Spills The Beans To Ridge: "I'm Pregnant!"

An emotionally drained Caroline (Linsey Godfrey), who now truly needs some tranquilizers to calm down, confessed to Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) on a pivotal episode of The Bold and the Beautiful! 

Monday’s episode featured the continuation of last Friday’s cliffhanger, where Caroline in a let-it-all-out purge, revealed to Ridge that first, she had slept with his son, Thomas (Pierson Fode). But after trying to recover from that stinger, Ridge the second part of the secret that Caroline is harboring … she’s pregnant and Thomas is the father! After all, Caroline just learned Ridge had a vasectomy and cannot father a child.

Deciminated by the news that his son had sex with his wife, and now is the father of the baby she is carrying, Ridge falls to the floor.  Making this all the more a punch-to-the-gut is that shortly before meeting up with Caroline, Thomas punched Ridge in the face.  That went down after a heated father and son had a verbal assault that led to the game-changer between the two Forrester men.

Watch Caroline spill the beans to Ridge after the jump!  Let us know what you thought of the performances, once again, of Linsey Godfrey and Thorsten Kaye, who just may have their Emmy competition submission tapes.   Then in story, how do you think this will play out?  What will this couple do now that Ridge knows Thomas is the baby daddy? Will Thomas ever know? Share your thoughts below!

It is high drama but maybe this is what happens when you marry your late wife’s niece on the rebound from her marriage to your stepbrother/stepson and your on-and-off marriages with said stepbrother/stepson’s mother (also the ex-wife of your in-name-only father). Oh, and now that your son is father to your new wife’s (his stepaunt) baby, you could be both grandfather and stepdad to the child! (And remember the rumor your son had that crazyberries affair with your ex-wife!).

Did I remember all that correctly?

Sigh.

Rick and Ridge have the same father–they are half-brothers. Yeah, yeah, I know Massimo is really Ridge’s father, but Eric raised Ridge and considers him his son so I consider Ridge Eric’s son, not his stepson.

Half-brothers, yes, I stand corrected, Mo. Still one amazing mess of a family tree. More of a family bramble!

I was glad to see that BandB didn’t drag this story out but gave it a huge 2-part punch, starting last Friday. Now that the truth is out between Ridge & Caroline, I wonder if they’ll let Thomas in on the truth or pass off baby-Forrester as Ridge’s child. Maybe Caroline’s guilt will drive her to go along w/a plan like this. Both actors were wonderful in the scene, but I think the moment belonged to Linsey Godfrey.

Agreed. Linsey should put in for lead actress in the Emmy’s.

The acting was exceptional but the story is awful. I can’t help but think that this baby will end up being Ridge’s, not because B&B thinks that Caroline and Ridge belong together, but because there is so much disgust from the audience over what Thomas did. I’m not taking any sides here, and I know that all three characters played a role in the situation being what it is, but fan reaction is very vocal against Thomas’ behavior that night and now Ridge is saying what a lot of fans have been screaming. I can’t see B&B rewarding Thomas with… Read more »

B and B has years to keep this baby’s paternity in play if they want. I do agree that it will *probably* be Ridge’s baby sooner rather than later, as a lot of viewers point out that Ridge never had a second opinion etc. But, Y&R kept Summer’s paternity in question forever…18 years? before the final determination. I don’t think the Thomas/Caroline one-nighter was as god awful as some people do. So, it doesn’t seem like a ” reward” for Thomas to me. And, I am not a fan of this Ridge at all, so that may influence me 🙂

Michael, I think it’s high time you interview those 2. 😉 I was at the edge of my seat watching Ridge and Caroline on both Friday’s and Monday’s show. This is what soaps are all about! Wonderful performances and I hope they get the recognition they deserve, especially Thorsten Kaye who has been overlooked for so many years! I was pleasantly surprised that they didn’t drag this out and had Caroline confess it all, not because she was threatened but because she thought it was the right thing to do. The other soaps should take notes (GH, I’m looking at… Read more »

So heartbreaking.

I don’t like that they are making it Thomas’ baby, but I’m hoping that it is a mistake.

I think Ridge will ask Caroline to lie and say it is his (Ridge) baby.

Caroline also needs to realize it was rape.

OMG I hope Ridge & Caroline make a pack to keep it to themselves and raise the child as their’s. As for noisy Brooke Ridge can tell her the test came back and he’s able to father a child after all. Please don’t break these two up.

Ridge should think back to when he slept with his father’s wife Brook and “Whoa ” RJ was produce. There is and old saying You Reep What You So!!!!! I know they will make this a Ridge baby until Thomas let out to Brooke that he slept with Caroline and she put together that ridge is not the father but Thomas is..

Soap Smarts: How Daytime Dramas Are Using Ingenuity To Get Back Into Production During COVID-19

Daytime dramas seldom get the credit they deserve, and now they should be getting further credit for being the first back into production as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage on, and trying to implement new ways to keep their trademarks love scenes, intimate moments and two-person scenes somehow looking in tact; even though it will be far from how it was done in the past.

In the story from the Associated Press The Bold and the Beautiful EP, and head writer, Brad Bell – who’s soap was the first one back into the studio – commented on how the show is utilizing mannequins, or real-life significant others to help pull off close contact love scenes and how it is rather groundbreaking. “We feel almost like television pioneers all these years later because we’re the first ones out, blazing new ways of producing the shows with the current safety standards, and we’re getting the job done. It’s very exciting.”

When B&B scripts written pre-coronavirus were reviewed in preparation for shooting during the pandemic now, originally all the cinches and smooches were cut. But Bell found a solution whereby a remote actor recites lines as their on-camera scene partner responds in a “low, intimate voice” and engages in “beautiful, yearning eye contact” with an off-camera doll.

As far as the soapy embrace or lip-lock, B&B cast member Katrina Bowden (Flo) has had her husband and musician Ben Jorgensen stand in for her on-screen love interest, Darin Brooks (Wyatt) since returning to taping new episodes.

Days of our Lives EP Ken Corday noted to AP:  The “learning curve” is steep. Before the pandemic, “we were producing eight, one-hour episodes a week. That’s basically 40 or 50 scenes a day.  That’s going to be basically impossible to reopen, so to speak, at that pace. We’re going to have to be more careful. So will there be five shows a week, or more? Yet to be determined.  It will certainly cost more.”

B&B and now Y&R which heads back into production next week, and the others soaps, will be using the company called Reel Health, which launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to serve the entertainment industry, and hires medically trained workers to monitor sets and enforce protocols developed by a company epidemiologist and in accordance with industry and government standards,

Alicia Rodis, a veteran intimacy coordinator who helped the actors guild develop guidelines for taping scenes of romance and simulated sex. shared: “Finding ways to put romance on the screen is inevitable and necessary.  At the end of the day, intimacy isn’t going anywhere. Physical intimacy is a part of the human experience. And we’re going to have to find a way to be able to continue to tell these stories, even in extraordinary circumstances.”

So, what do you think of how soaps are tackling taping episodes in the new normal to give their fans a sense of all that they love from their favorite daytime dramas during COVID-19? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
