THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Thorsten Kaye and Linsey Godfrey Deliver Emotional Moments As Ridge Drops Bombshell On Caroline!

Fans of The Bold and the Beautiful saw the set-up coming a mile long!  But when it was executed BOLD style, there was still some emotional wallop to the storyline.

Caroline (Linsey Godfrey) just learned she is pregnant.  She realized the father of her unborn baby could potentially be either: Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) or his son, Thomas (Pierson Fode).  After all, post a mini break-up with Ridge, Caroline downed some anti-depressants and alcohol, and later found herself alone with the younger strapping Forrester.  However, that one night (while she tried to put it behind her) has seriously come back to haunt her.

Now after saying their very private “I do’s” to each other, Caroline learned some shocking truth from the man she loves. Ridge had a vasectomy while he was over in Paris.  He can’t father children, and he cannot have the vasectomy reversed, even though he relates to her that he so wanted to …  for her.  Ridge sought a doctor to help him undo what has been done.

In key scenes, a heartbroken Ridge tried gently to explain his decision which led to the vasectomy in the first place. However on Monday’s episode, as Ridge continued to reveal to Caroline – the worst possible news for her predicament- it provided emotionally nuanced scenes for series stars: Thorsten Kaye and Linsey Godrey.

Ridge related to Caroline (after breaking the news that he can’t ever father a child again):  “I don’t want you to hate me.  In two years, in five years, when doubt comes, and you look around, and look at us, and you think this isn’t enough.  I can’t even begin to imagine what your going through right now.  This empty feeling inside you.  But I’m here, and I will always be here.”  Uh-oh! Caroline is in hot water now!  Her compassion turned to fear as she realized that Thomas is indeed the father of the baby she is carrying.

Watch Thorsten and Linsey deliver in their emotionally charged scene after the jump!  Then, let us know … what did you think of the their performances?  What do you think of the storyline?  Are you glad that Thomas is the baby-daddy? Or, do you think there will still be some medical twist that will reveal somehow that Ridge is the dad?  Comment below!

Thorsten Kaye and Linsey Godfrey have been brilliant! Their scenes yesterday were so raw and felt so real. Daggers to the heart! I certainly hope that there will be a twist so the baby is Ridge’s. I know this is a soap but I would be appalled to see Thomas given a child as a result of his sexual assault on Caroline. She was in No shape to consent. She didn’t have to be tied up or beaten for it to constitute rape. She was barely conscious! Her tears and emotional state should have been enough reason for Thomas to… Read more »

Ok, I don’t like that they slept together (soooo predictable) but that’s a bit extreme. Thomas had no way of knowing she had taken pills. What grown woman just starts popping someone else’s pills to begin with. And they were both drinking. He was trying to comfort her and at no time did she pull away or say no.

Aside from that, she was talking to him plenty so she was certainly coherent enough to say NO along with all of her other talking.

He didn’t know about the pills but he knew she was heartbroken and drinking and that she loved his dad and that he loved her back! Don’t understand why the pills are deciding factor. She was talking to him about her love for his father the entire time. She thought she was talking to a friend. By the time he moved to the bed where she was laying practically lifeless and crying, she was seeing in triple and barely awake. Her last words to him were that he was a good friend. How does he rationalize all that and think… Read more »

It was heartbreaking. I so want Caroline and Ridge to be happy and for Ridge to be the father of her baby. Maybe there’s a possibility–I hope!

I still think Caroline should have told Ridge what happened from the get-go. She was incapacitated and Thomas took advantage of her.

Thorsten Kaye and Linsey Godfrey have been magnificent in the storyline! I’m enjoying the storyline but I’m hoping Ridge turns out to be the father in the end. I want Caridge to prevail!

Amazing scenes between Thorsten & Linsey. I’m hopeful there is more to the story and we will get some medical twist. It’s way too easy in Soap terms. Plus, Linsey has really shined since she has been sharing scenes with Thorsten.

This is a classic soap story– and whole thing will come out eventually, and hopefully in the end it will be Ridge’s child, because I hate to see poor Caroline tied to that slime Thomas all her life— now I know why they recast the role, because this guy plays creepy and icky really well.

No I am horrified at the thought of the rapist, Thomas possibly being the father! I cannot fathom that B&B with all it’s touting of the transgender storyline & all the other socially relevant issues of the day have dropped the ball on this – nothing but rape or date rape – I find nothing romantic or interesting about this & B&B needs to call it what it is & not try to force us to buy Caroline & Thomas as a couple. Ewww! Not liking it. Thorsten & Linsey have been incredible! They have such magic – I am… Read more »

Perhaps it’s karma for him seducing (taking advantage) of Caroline when she was married to Rick for crying out loud. What goes around comes around.

Ridge didn’t sleep with Caroline until she was completely done with Rick and months after Rick and Maya were a couple. So while they used bad judgement at the beginning by kissing, they both pulled back and realized they were wrong and tried to do what was right. Caroline humiliated herself quite a bit to Rick because of it and Ridge stepped aside so they could try to work things out,

Ridge & Caroline stayed apart so Caroline could try and get her marriage back together but Rick was already sleeping with Maya. Rick made a fool of her and never got it back so as far as karma goes lets hope Rick & Maya get it back.

I agree 100%. This was rape no matter what Thomas says. Caroline was drinking and took pills. This creep should be behind bars. I never liked this new Thomas anyways.

Ridge has enough kids he never spent time with or mentioned until they were adults. When’s the last time he even mentioned or asked to see R.J.?

All they have done is made this a Ridge and Brooke redo with a younger version of Brooke, where all these fluke things happen to her that create scandal.

TK and LG were excellent but I’m not a fan of the story. I know that the father/son WTD storyline has been done on B&B before and this is a nod to history, but this story feels like it’s going at 150 mph with no slowdown in sight. Caroline’s need for a baby, right here and now, was a little much, but B&B should have stuck to Ridge not wanting to have another baby and used that as the conflict between the couple. It’s now ugly with father vs. son as the possible father, more secrets as Caroline keeps this… Read more »

I just love these to together and it looks like Ridge has finally settled down. I don’t know why Caroline has to tell Thomas the truth about the baby. She has two choices. Both are lies but it’s a soap and I would like to see her & Ridge stay together. 1ST.Tell Ridge the truth and if he can accept it they can pretend it’s Ridge’s child and his operation didn’t work 2ND. Have an abortion or actually 3RD. Take off for a few days and come back prego. saying she had artificial insemination, Ridge can tell Brooke that he’s… Read more »

I think TK is doing a great job with the material he is given. This storyline is stupid and this couple is unbelievable. I feel sorry for Ridge, because Caroline has to have a baby even though he doesn’t want another child. The choices he is making is for Caroline and to make sure his Child bride won’t leave him, his ego can’t take it. Caroline is too childish for this man. It is sad that Bell had to write the story for Thomas as he did. However, from history it’s Karma to Ridge. Didn’t he do the same thing… Read more »

There are a lot of young girls married to older men in real life and are very happy with the stability in the relationship. (Canadian Celine Dion) for one. How about Annett Benning and Warren Beatty? Eric was an old goat with grown children when he got involved with Brooke. Thomas never knew about the pills but all she talked about was Ridge. He knew she was hurting and he just took what he wanted. For gosh sake the next morning she couldn’t even remember. Thomas is a date rapist and I hope he gets caught and punished. I don’t… Read more »

Sure there are but I doubt the wife acts like a Teeny bopper and they want the same things in life. Caroline wants young children and Ridge had his family and is dancing through hoops for Caroline. So is Caroline going to tell Ridge he is going to be a grandpa? I doubt it. She will keep her indiscretions to herself. Again she sure didn’t say no to Thomas’s advances when it was happening. She could have and she didn’t. She even told her doctor he didn’t take advantage of her. If she felt it was any kind of rape,… Read more »

Will have to agree to disagree. When she woke-up in the morning and Thomas told her they had sex she through him out. No I don’t believe she will call it date rape because she loves Ridge and she wouldn’t want to hurt him. She also knows the relationship between Ridge & Thomas is not strong & I think she knows that would be the end of Thomas’s career if Caroline told him. In real life she’s 27 and he’s 49. That really is no biggy, 22 years. Take a look at Michael Douglas at 71 and his wife Catherine… Read more »

I don’t have a problem with the AGE. You can have physical age and psychological age. IMO Caroline is too immature for Ridge. Now if you are going on age by actors you are right it isn’t that big a deal..but you can’t because Ridge has a history and that is what Thorsten picked up when he joined Bold. So even though Thorsten is 49, Ridge is closer to 59. Again I don’t have a problem with the age, if Caroline would grow up and stop acting like a young kid. Well I think Thomas is icky too, but no… Read more »

Peg Well as I said we’ll have to agree to disagree and I can see the way Bill Bell is going especially since Brook is always hanging around. I think Ridge will eventually go back with her which makes me ill but Ill continue to watch until the final break-up between Ridge & Caroline and then take the Fall off for awhile.

I love how not one comment mentions Brooke Logan. YES! For that, i am a Ridge and Caroline 2.0 super-fan.

Their performances were good for what it’s worth, but this is just another silly story line involving Forrester men sharing the same woman. I know everyone deserves a shot, but this Thomas is so miscast it’s unbearable. His lack of expression and that hair cut is not winning any points in this corner.

I was a big fan of this couple until, to prove his “great love” for Caroline, Ridge decided to lie and keep secrets about his inability to father children, and Caroline in return, married him while keeping the secret of her night with Thomas from Ridge. The fact that neither of them could come clean with the other before making such a life altering commitment shows just how immature and not ready for marriage these two are and makes their words to each other and everyone else about how much they love each other ring hollow. I can’t buy what… Read more »

I really enjoy how these two actors feed off of one another….

However, I don’t understand how the writers are allowing Ridge to tell Brooke his deepest secrets and keep it from his love, Caroline. Ridge would NOT do that… he came back a completely different man, and for him to take Brooke on this journey IS NOT consistent with Ridge for the past year.

Disappointed…Brooke and Ridge better not be the end game….!!

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.
