The anticipated return of Thorne to The Bold and the Beautiful promises intriguing storylines, especially as Winsor Harmon steps back into the role, expressing enthusiasm for potential future appearances.
Harmon’s return for Eric’s grand gala marks just the beginning of what could become a more regular comeback if viewers respond positively.
Thorne’s Potential Arcs
Thorne’s return may lead to some new storylines. Harmon revealed in an interview with SOD how thrilled he was to be returning to B&B for Eric’s grand gala.
Harmon is hoping that there will be more comeback tours in the future. Bradley Bell, the show’s head writer and executive producer, may decide to include Thorne more frequently in the mix.
Harmon is remaining upbeat about the situation, though it all depends on how viewers react and what kinds of stories Bell might come up with.
“I think things will start popping in Brad’s head and he will start writing for Thorne again. We will see how the audience reacts,” Harmon remarked.
As Harmon would prefer to be more involved in the action, let us take a look at some potential ways the show could start utilizing Thorne more.
Thorne’s rivalry with Ridge and some of his other family members at Forrester Creations would be simple to set up, but perhaps we should also consider a more romantic angle.
Impact on Katie’s Love Life
Thorne fell deeply in love with Katie during Ingo Rademacher’s portrayal of him on the show, and they got married before Will’s custody hearing.
Later, after going through some personal struggles of his own, Thorne got an annulment from Katie and moved away, but that was because of her residual feelings for Bill.
Now that Winsor Harmon is playing Thorne again, perhaps the stars will align for a second opportunity, especially since Katie has firmly put Bill in the rearview mirror.
Right now, Thorne has the potential to win Katie’s heart back and give them another chance at romance, but for now, it is Carter who has taken it. If B&B allows Thorne to re-enter and present some temptation, Carter may have some competition.
This could be a good way to get Katie and Carter’s relationship going again since it appears that it has stalled anyway.
Carter might be inspired to work a little harder at keeping Katie, but she might still be tempted to glance in Thorne’s direction! Katie might update her love life in the future.
