Top 5 Craziest Storylines from The Bold and the Beautiful

“The Bold and the Beautiful” is well-known for its stunning runway fashion shows and drama within the hallowed halls of Forrester Creations.

That is the bread and butter of the daytime drama, which has been running for over three decades. Soaps like “Days of Our Lives” and “General Hospital” have traditionally been more comfortable with storylines that are “out there” and not rooted in typical reality—think baby switches and mob wars, to name a few examples—so it is difficult to stun viewers with bizarre or shocking storylines (though not impossible).

In contrast, “B&B” does not delve too deeply into the subject, but when it does, the moments are outrageous and elicit strong emotions.

Whether they are good or bad is debatable, but certain plots during the sudser’s tenure tip the scales toward the bizarre or perplexing, becoming more memorable than others.

Whether it is a fashion icon’s unconventional relationship or intimate romps with inanimate objects, “B&B” has strong competition for the wildest storylines.

Here is a list of the top 5 craziest storylines from The Bold and the Beautiful.

1. Sally Faked a Terminal illness and Kidnapped Flo

Watching Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) go to such extreme lengths for love was a complete train wreck. Her once-solid relationship with boyfriend Wyatt Spencer (Darin Brooks) was shattered when his high school sweetheart, Flo Fulton (Katrina Bowden), resurfaced.

Those close to Wyatt, such as his parents, wanted him to leave Sally for Flo, and Sally knew it was inevitable. However, it was difficult to root against Sally at the time because her secret battle with a terminal illness was revealed.

Only Katie Logan (Heather Tom) was initially looped into the truth, but she eventually spilled the beans to Wyatt.

Wyatt was a stand-up guy, and with the green light from Flo, he agreed to be there for Sally during her final days.

Sadly for Wyatt, he was unaware that Sally was duping everyone in her life. There was nothing wrong with her other than some anxiety and stress.

She believed she only had one chance to keep Wyatt, so she pretended to have a fatal disease. It was not unusual for Sally to resort to extreme measures to achieve her goals, but pretending to be dying was horrifying.

To make matters worse, when Flo discovered the truth, Sally and her crooked doctor kidnapped her and held her hostage for a long time.

Sally was eventually exposed and shipped off to Genoa City, but not before losing her dignity.

2. Bill pretended to Turn to the Dark side as Sheila’s lover

Bill Spencer, was kicked by everyone in his life. Brooke Logan and Katie Logan, his lifelong loves, had no romantic feelings for him, leaving him with no apparent options in his life.

It wasn’t too far-fetched to believe he was about to revert to the dark side in some capacity. But what the writers had in store for him was so out in left field that it bordered on the verge of unbelievable.

Even at his lowest point, why would Bill turn to career criminal Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) and pursue a romantic relationship with her?

Even in the zany world of soap operas, the shock factor was out of control. Sheila threatened Bill’s grandchildren, making his involvement with her uncharacteristic of someone who can be ruthless in the name of protecting the family.

However, luckily, for whatever reason, “The Bold and the Beautiful” reversed course, revealing Bill to be a part of an undercover operation to finally bring Sheila to justice on charges that would stick.

The image of Bill and Sheila kissing is permanently ingrained in viewers’ minds, and the show should never go down that avenue again.

It is bad enough that Sheila is still on the canvas, roaming freely despite decades of criminal activity.

3. Brooke slept with Hope’s boyfriend, Oliver

Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) has a shady relationship with men in “The Bold and the Beautiful.”

She has betrayed everyone she cares about to fall in love with any man she wants. Many of the men, including her daughter Bridget Forrester’s husband, Deacon Sharpe (Sean Kanan), were already spoken for. Brooke had an affair with Deacon, leading to Hope Logan’s conception.

It was appalling to see Brooke’s selfish streak in action, and while it should’ve stopped there, it didn’t.

In Brooke’s defense, there was a lot of miscommunication the night she slept with Hope’s boyfriend, Oliver Jones, years later.

But she could’ve done more to avoid it happening in the first place. Sure, Oliver was dressed like Ridge, and everyone at the party was wearing masks.

However, Hope’s big night quickly turned into a horror show after Oliver and Brooke mistook each other for Ridge and Hope.

Brooke then had sex with Hope’s boyfriend, demonstrating yet again that she cannot be trusted.

First and foremost, Brooke and Ridge had been intimate for decades, so she would recognize his demeanor. How did she not know it wasn’t him?

Surely, Oliver, the high school student, would’ve felt somewhat different? Fans found it difficult to believe she was unaware of the atrocities she was committing.

4. Eric Enlisted Carter to Sleep with Quinn in His place

Eric Forrester (John McCook) has been the patriarch of the Forrester family since the series’ inception in the 1980s.

He was portrayed as a strong-willed man, but everything changed in 2021. Eric’s marriage to Quinn Fuller (Rena Sofer) was failing due to her constant deception, but he was willing to give her another chance.

However, when Eric gave Quinn another chance at a future with him, something did not feel right in terms of intimacy.

Eric was unable to perform in the bedroom, so Quinn sought a sexual connection elsewhere, ending up in the bed of Forrester C.O.O. Carter Walton (Lawrence Saint-Victor).

Instead of kicking Quinn out, Eric made the astonishing decision to encourage the affair so that Quinn could be satisfied in ways that he could no longer provide.

It was a stark contrast to the man who had been portrayed as a business and romantic powerhouse.

It was an odd decision to relegate Eric to such a role, and seeing him actively plan encounters for his wife with his son’s best friend made me cringe.

Eric eventually had a “aha” moment, becoming aroused by another woman, proving Quinn was likely the problem all along.

Even so, seeing a powerhouse like Eric sitting at home drinking alone while his wife is “serviced” by Carter was difficult to stomach. Never again.

5. Thomas was intimate with a Hope Mannequin

Thomas Forrester’s (Matthew Atkinson) obsession with Hope Logan demonstrated that he could be the type of villain that “The Bold and the Beautiful” occasionally lacks. He was terrifying in a calculated way, and he would do anything to be with her.

Thomas ran Emma Barber (Nia Sioux) off the road to her fiery death so Hope would believe her daughter was dead. He was determined to pursue her but remained somewhat in control despite his unconventional methods.

However, when the Hope mannequin was introduced, Thomas’s control over the situation was lost. Nobody had expected Thomas to fall in love with a mannequin.

It looked just like Hope and even spoke to him. The longer he interacted with it, the more dangerous things became.

The mannequin encouraged him to harm Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton), which should have been a warning sign.

But, no, Thomas maintained his relationship with the object. The show eventually progressed to having Thomas make out with the mannequin in a jaw-dropping moment, but not in a way that makes you want to keep watching. It was creepy, and it would be premature to end the storyline.
