Bold and the Beautiful has Hope Logan, Eric Forrester, and RJ Forrester face some strange days ahead of them with their individual storylines on the CBS soap. One character, Hope, won’t practice what she preaches in upcoming B&B episodes. Another iconic character, Eric, just started to cough up blood, which he’d like everyone to believe is arthritis. Then there’s one of the newest cast members, RJ, who so far is just there, like a piece of furniture with rollers.

Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: Eric Forrester’s Bloody Handkerchief Gets Too Many Scenes

Eric Forrester (John McCook) is not looking good. This week he also made it a bit uncomfortable for viewers to eat their lunch while watching this soap.

It seems the flashback of the week is Eric’s bloody handkerchief. So, if you plan to eat your lunch while watching Bold and the Beautiful, beware.

So far the soap got a lot of mileage out of that bloody reminder, and it’s not very appetizing. On Friday’s episode, they had him cough blood up in his bare hand. Then they zoomed in for the full effect.

Still, Eric Forrester is sick, but the doctor doesn’t have a diagnosis for him yet. The tremors had Bold and the Beautiful fans guessing Parkinson’s Disease. Then this new symptom surfaced.

But just on the outside chance you missed it, he’s now coughing up blood. So, this opens up the diagnosis possibilities.

B&B Spoilers: RJ Forrester an Accessory?

RJ Forrester (Joshua Hoffman) continues to waltz in and out of scenes. But Bold and the Beautiful fans still complain he offers very little to the storyline. However, the show’s viewers also suggest that RJ seems to be getting good at echoing his co-stars’ words back at them.

RJ floated into Bold and the Beautiful with a motto. He refused to get involved in the family drama. But that’s all that he’s done since coming on board.Bold and the Beautiful: Hope Logan (Annika Noelle) - RJ Forrester (Joshua Hoffman)B&B | CBS

He tried to get his parents back together. While RJ Forrester’s push might have helped, they finally reconnected for their destiny once again. Then RJ got into Thomas Forrester‘s (Matthew Atkinson) business about his relationship with Hope Logan (Annika Noelle).

So far RJ is smack dab in the center of family drama. He also interrogated Hope over her relationship with her husband and with Thomas. Now he knows about what could be a life-threatening secret about Eric.

Yet, he’s keeping this quiet because of a promise he made. So, in the long run, it looks as if RJ Forrester is about to create more drama by keeping Eric’s secret.

Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: Hope Logan Won’t Practice What She Preaches

Next week, when Hope Logan finds out about her dad’s engagement, the sky starts falling for her. That’s because Hope also finds out just who her father plans to marry.

Granted, Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) is a woman who leaves unthinkable deeds in her wake. She’s even a level or two above Thomas Forrester when it comes to horrific crimes. But Thomas has some pretty awful things in his past as well.

Bold and the Beautiful dropped a few hints this week in a conversation between Hope Logan and Finn. She told John Finnegan (Tanner Novlan) that people can change. She used this as a defense when they talked about her attraction to Thomas. So, she feels he’s overcome his bad boy days.

So, it looks like Hope said all the things to Finn that Deacon Sharpe (Sean Kanan) is about to say to her. When he tells her he’s marrying Sheila, Bold and the Beautiful spoilers say she is too stunned to talk.

But while Hope expected people to respect her thoughts on Thomas changing, she won’t do the same for Sheila. Once she finds out next week, it looks like this puts a rip in the father-daughter relationship. So, it looks like Hope Logan won’t practice what she preaches on the CBS soap next week.
