THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Who Shot Dollar Bill Spencer? Name Your Prime Suspect!



In the tradition of Dallas‘ “Who Shot J.R?” comes The Bold and the Beautiful’s, “Who Shot Dollar Bill Spencer?”. But whodunit?

The suspect list is quite long, as Bill (Don Diamont) finally got so many members of family and others angry at him for his “seduction” of Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood), his business dealings, his trying to take custody of his child away from its mother, and that’s just for starters.  So, who wanted him dead?  Could it be one of his sons Wyatt (Darin Brooks) or Liam (Scott Clifton)?  The woman he slept with while she was married to his son … Steffy?

How about Steffy’s father, Ridge (Thorsten Kaye), or Steffy’s brother, Thomas (Pierson Fode). Add to that Bill’s ex-wife, Katie (Heather Tom), and the woman who’s livelihood he burned to the ground, Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope).  Then there are assorted other possibilities like Pam (Alley Mills), Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) or Justin (Aaron D. Spears).

Do you think of these people was the culprit, or is it someone else not even mentioned above?

Time for you to be our PI and tell us who will be eventually revealed as the shooter. Share your theories in the comment section below!

The person with the gun-lol

The gun was left at Bills house so the shooter cannot have the gun

It is always the one you least suspect. So my guess is Hope. She had plenty of time to do it and no one knows where she was at the time of the shooting. She blames Bill for wrecking her life with Liam For one thing. Plus, hurting Bill might expose Steffy’s real feelings for the man if Steffy thinks Bill might die.



Steffi. She lost the most and has finally realized how much Bill has taken from her!

It’s either going to be Sheila, Sally, Thomas or Caroline.

Good! I am not the only one who thinks Caroline snuck into town and plugged him! She definitely has many reasons! Sheila, Quinn and Ridge are the easy choices . Charlie is a good choice too, but Justin would be the icing on the cake. He always appears to be devoted to Bill, but in actuality, maybe he hates Ol’ Dollar Bill!

you hit the nail right on its head.

All of the other characters on the show. They all each took turns shooting him…lol.

Justin seems the most likely suspect. Sheila would be my second choice, since she is more dispensable than Justin. If Sheila gets arrested for this, then she should tell police that Ridge asked her to kill Bill. That would leave Brooke free to have sex with Thorne.


That’s very true. I mean Brooke had been a newlywed for about two months now. She long overdue to sample the dessert menu!!



Yup. I’m going with that guess too.

Oh my gosh, I cannot remember his name…the employee that Bill recently fired, the one that he had (is it George) to write the bad review on Sally…to me he (George?) would be the culprit for he’s not a major character of the show…

Forgot. About him! Good choice!

His name is Jarrett, and I think he’s too much of a throwaway character to be the culprit. It has to be someone that matters.


This mystery does not interest me. I worry whoever is responsible will not pay for the crime. And Bill will not learn anything from the attack on him. B&B’s romances (in name only) lack punch. They dance too close to familial relationships to be almost cringe-inducing, and for all the profession of love and commitment (and the endless weddings), no one really is convincing as life loves. Show could use a major shake-up and, perhaps, this Bill attack may prompt it. Tho I do not expect it.

Iakovos…I really wish they would expand B&B to an hour and get more characters and story lines..I think Brad Bell has had a few good stories on this show but its the same thing over and over with the characters and then he rushes things like this murder mystery, it all happened so fast and forced instead of time to build up and then there is the Liam/Steffy ordeal for it’s been going on for years…It’s like you mentioned Iakovos, B&B romances lack punch then they last no time…

My guess is Justin– perhaps on Bill’s order so they could frame Ridge for it

Good one!

Justin is so completely obnoxious; his feet up on the desk assuming he’s the new CEO. And why oh WHY is Sheryl Underwood on the show! Talk about breaking the fourth walll! She is so completely not an actress; it rings so false that it ruins the scenes for me. Does not ANYONE who works with talent/actors see that the woman cannot act? I don’t get it…other than she’s known to throw herself at the male stars on The I guess it’s supposed to be “cute” that she gets to work on the show? Make it stop!

Back to Bill. He couldn’t have deserved it more and I couldn’t be less moved by his “condition.” He’ll obviously pull through and be back after this Italian Dancing With The Stars gig is over.

The obvious and most expendable choice is Sheila. Is it so obvious that she won’t be the one? Steffy might have; she’s leaving the show…riding off into the sunset with Thomas. I’d hate for them to make it her…

Justin? Also obvious.

So, if it’s not the obvious, maybe the whole town just lucked out and it’s some random shooting. Karma.

Rebecca…you are SO RIGHT ON about that Sheryl Underwood chick!!!!! To me, she is NOT an actress…PERIOD!!!!! She needs to go back to The Talk…AND STAY THERE!!!!!

Have a good one, Rebecca.

Ugh, right, jaybrid369? It was bad enough when she made a “guest” appearance once before. You would have thought that THAT would have shown anyone with eyes/ears that she is not an actress. No amount of coaching will change that.

Sally not Steffy.

What I think the REAL question is what did Rena Sofer do to her eyebrows!!!! She’s so gorgeous but lately her brows, which look like she dyed black, are taking control of her face!

My guess – a disposable character – like Justin.

Aaron D. Spears was just elevated to contract so I doubt it’s him. Plus, it would be too obvious since Bill signed over control of Spencer to him as his next-in-line minutes before he was shot.

But, Bill didn’t sign the contract. The “boys” (Liam & Wyatt) need to get a lawyer to take control.

There are so many possibilities with this storyline since practically everyone on the show had an issue with Bill.

Neither Wyatt or Liam have it in them to shoot Bill. At the end of the day, he’s still their father no matter what happened between them, and based on the way they talked to him in the hospital, I don’t see either of them being the culprit.

I think it’s far too convenient for the shooter to have been Justin given that Bill just signed the documents making him next in line at Spencer. There would be very little drama with that, plus Aaron D. Spears was just elevated to contract.

I also think it’s too obvious for the shooter to be Sheila or Pam, given their histories of mental illness. It was only last week that Sheila was brought back to the canvas after an extended break, and Pam being off her meds was only mentioned a day or two before Bill’s shooting.

Rick and Maya were shoehorned into this story very abruptly so I doubt it’s either of them. Katie was the one to find Bill, and was horrified to see him shot, so it can’t be her. Steffy was at home the whole time waiting for Liam, while both Brooke and Eric were waiting for their spouses so it’s neither of them.

I don’t think Quinn or Ridge shot Bill, because again it would be way too convenient. We all know how much Ridge hates Bill, so he’s probably the most likely suspect in the eyes of the police, but it won’t be him. As for Quinn, yes she has a long history of erratic behavior and breaking the law, but I doubt she’d be willing to risk going to jail after all her past misdeeds over this.

Thomas’s return to town was rather abrupt, but I don’t believe that he or Caroline would risk going to jail and being away from Douglas over shooting Bill. It would be convenient for it to be Caroline since she’s not a regular anymore, but it would also be wildly out of character.

Sally is also an unlikely suspect since B&B seems to be moving in the direction of building Spectra back up and having them be a true rival for Forrester. Putting the namesake of the great Sally Spectra behind bars would be counter-productive on that front, and waste the potential of a great character.

Shirley, however, is far more likely than Sally to be the shooter. Given all Bill has done to her grand-niece and their company, I wouldn’t be surprised if Shirley clocked him. Plus, considering B&B’s sizable cast, it wouldn’t hurt to get rid of a contract player that we don’t see often. And there’s still so much about Shirley that we don’t know yet. I wouldn’t be surprised if she took after her sister in how fiercely she protects those she cares about, albeit in a much more murderous fashion.

Hope, Thorne and Nicole were all unaccounted for during Bill’s shooting. Nicole is presumably in Paris with Zende, but both Hope and Thorne were in L.A. I doubt it would be Thorne given Ingo Rademacher was just brought on, but it doesn’t really seem like they have a long-term story planned for Thorne yet, given that Brooke and Ridge just got married and Katie and Wyatt just got engaged.

That leaves Hope, who I believe is at the top of the suspect list. Why? Because she has plenty of reason to hate Bill. But I also think there’s something going on with Hope that we aren’t aware of yet. Perhaps a mental illness storyline is on the horizon with her, because I have a hard time believing that B&B brought Hope back, in the form of a very capable actress in Annika Noelle, just to insert her back in Liam and Steffy’s orbit. There has to be more to it than that, so I think she’s a very real possibility.

So, I think Hope and Shirley are the most likely suspects to be the real shooter, but we probably won’t find out for a few weeks as this all plays out and several other innocent people get accused of it first.

I’m wondering if the shooter is RJ because maybe he found out what was going on and went to confront Bill.Plus RJ been the shooter could add drama to Brooke and Ridge and their new marriage.Also maybe Ridge finds out it was RJ and he takes the blame to protect his son.


in a desperate (but futile) attempt to return to the show and get her OWN storyline.

Pretty sure it was a female character. So either Darlita, Pam, Caroline, Ivy, Nicole, the Doctor, someone Soras’ed or someone Undead.

I’m going with either Ivy or someone Undead. There has to be a reason why Ivy dyed her hair blonde. So it’s probably a mistaken identity case where she resembles Hope.

Taylor… played by Genie Francis

Caroline is a good option, however it will not be a main character it will be someone who is dispensable.


it will never be hope but she is so boring it should be it will be justin a 4th tier character

Uncle Thorne.

could it have been Ingo Rademacher’ Thorne ?

I haven’t heard ONE peep.. he must be earning his keep

I was turned off the first day… as he was stuck in a turtle neck and with KKL. Brooke

Brad Bell has literally destroyed his fathers legacy IR bombed like the retcon Spectras the Brooke mess the Ridge recast the Sheila mess it’s so sad.

Its Saul…or ShirLeY. De spectras are done.


Justin didn’t do it, but let’s look at Pam, the creative writers have given her character some depth now with the pathos of her impending illness, it should be her…. Shelia is the obvious choice, they they could go after Ridge and physically humiliate him, ruin the company at the same time, and have every Forrester mad at him, a d the stockholders up in arms and pure Eric back to work??? Too much to wish for, my money is on Pam.

Really sad that Brad has destroyed this soap and nobody can stop him nobody is acting in character past history is being rewritten why would he want to destroy his own show.

I think the better question is WHY did they only shoot him once!!

You know after all DB’s (Dollar Bill) hair looks amazing after being in a hospital bed for a week! DB is the man! he better pull through!!

He’ll pull through; he’s just off the show while he’s in Italy doing their Dancing With the Stars.

I actually think it’s a tie between Janett who was recently fired and Sheila who would say Ridge told me to do it! I don’t think it’s any of the main characters except maybe Thomas because he is off the show!

My theory: Liam was on his way to join Steffy for dinner and saw Bill propose thought the window. He snapped at the rage inducing moment, shot Bill and has now blocked it out.

I think it’s Sally, Sheila or Quin

I really wana meet him is he still in Italy??

still there.

I think it was either the journalist, Caroline, or Justin his right hand man. Who thinks he will be the next in line to run the company.

I think Caroline Spencer might have been the culprit after watching Wednesdays episode. However, I believe it could be Jarrett Maxwell since he has had smaller parts in the show. Out of everyone, I believe Taylor is the culprit and that she could very well be back for a shocking appearance on the show. Other than that I would say Pam or Justin could be the culprits. Brad Bell knows when to shock audiences when bringing back characters from the past. For example, (Sheila Carter) was a total secret.

I don’t think the shooter is Caroline because the show is making it too obvious that she could be the shooter because as the cops talking about the shooter wearing gloves we see Caroline wearing gloves.As for the shooter, my guess is it’s a major character and one we may never suspect.Also maybe it is Taylor who did it because she was trying to protect Steffy from Bill and maybe no one knew she was in LA.

I would have to say for sure: Taylor Hayes first.

I have one more thing to add to the suspect possibilities. Would it be possible that Saul had shot Bill before having dinner with Sally and Shirley? This could be a situation in which the show doesn’t show you the exact timing of the shooting and restaurant scene.Like a scene that the show decided not to air. Maybe Saul loves Sally too much to let Bill get away with this stuff. He appeared on an episode the other day having a dark side.

I think its Shelia. But I think they will arrest Caroline. I think Sally and Caroline’s baby daddy( I can never remember his name) will run off to raise the baby.

I think it’s either Saul, Shirley or RJ

After seeing Tuesday Mar 27th episode, I think it could have been Liam that shot Bill, because of the head injuries in the past and amnesia. Seems like he is having a recurring issue with his memory. The writers are gonna make it be someone who you would least expect.

Heche was officially declared ‘brain dead’ on August 12th, when her reps shared that Anne was “peacefully taken off life support.”  Before she passed, Anne taped what would be her final TV acting appearance in her recurring role on the legal drama, All Rise.

The series formerly with CBS and now airing on OWN, will air Heche’s last performance this Saturday, September 30th at 9pm ET/8 pm CT.  On All Rise, Heche plays lawyer Corrine Cuthbert.  Since season 2, Heche has taken on the recurring role. She appeared in six episodes.

In story, Corrine has had a fraught professional relationship with Judge Lola Carmichael played by Simone Missick.  For her final appearance, Heche’s Corrine shows up as part of a trial case.

All Rise dedicated the episode to Heche. As the hour comes to its conclusion, they express: “In Memory of Anne Heche, Our Friend and Wonderful Artist. You Are Missed.”

After this, Heche will star posthumously in the independent movie feature Wildfire: The Legend of the Cherokee Ghost Horse, slated for release in November.

Y&R’s Jess Walton On Why Mamie Irks Jill As Feud Reignites: “It’s Mamie’s Arrogance and How Much She Enjoyed Stepping on Jill’s Toes All These Years”

On recent episodes of The Young and the Restless, viewers learned that Mamie Johnson (Veronica Redd) is back and is actually the new secret investor in Chancellor-Winters.

Mamie told Nate (Sean Dominic) that she is looking forward to watching Jill’s (Jess Walton) head explode when it is finally revealed. Those remarks date back to Jill and Mamie’s longstanding feud and history; when Mamie was the Abbott family housekeeper, and both women had relationships with the late John Abbott (Jerry Douglas).

This current story will feature Jess Walton in an arc that pits her against Veronica Redd, and should delight longtime Y&R viewers who have loved the often catty remarks and fireworks between Jill and Mamie.

Photo: JPI

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Jess Walton spoke about why Jill has such an issue with Mamie. The Daytime Emmy-winning star expressed, “It’s Mamie’s arrogance and how much she enjoyed stepping on Jill’s toes all of these years. Mamie had always been judging Jill who in turn just hated the influence Mamie had with John.  When Jill was married to him, she never felt welcome in her own home.”

Photo: JPI

Walton went on to say on this new storyline development: “As far as she (Jill) is concerned that disrespect is continuing because Mamie bought into Chancellor-Winters without letting Jill know.”

Y&R fans can look forward to more of Jess on-screen in the next few months as she informed SOD, she will be taping scenes in October and November on the top-rated soap opera.

Photo: JPI

When all is said and done, Jess shared that her Genoa City alter-ego is very clear on just how Mamie gets under her skin: “Mamie was always so damn sanctimonious and hollier-than-thou and that always pissed Jill off. Mamie still knows how to really push Jill’s buttons.”

Check out the flashback scenes below featuring Veronica Redd and Jess Walton that were part of this week’s episodes of Y&R; where Mamie is revealed to be a now major investor in Chancellor-Winters.

Now let us know, are you looking forward to seeing the sparks fly between Jill and Mamie in the coming weeks? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
