‘The Bold And The Beautiful’ Spoilers: Katie Learns A Secret, Bill Exposes A Lie, Ridge And Caroline Scramble Protect The Truth

The Bold and The Beautiful spoilers tease that a showdown is in the works between Katie Logan (Heather Tom) and Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) during the week of April 11-15. Katie will overhear Ridge arguing with a stranger in public, which leads to a shocking discovery — Douglas is not his son, but Thomas’ child? Katie threatens to expose the truth, and Ridge begs her not to do that to his wife, Caroline (Linsey Godfrey). Will Katie tell Thomas (Pierson Fode) the truth, or will she keep her mouth shut?

Soap Opera Digest revealed that Katie will overhear Ridge admit to a stranger in public that Douglas is not his biological son. The stranger (presumably his former doctor) will disclose that not only is Douglas not his son, but he is his grandson. Katie couldn’t believe her ears — is it possible that Caroline had an affair with Thomas, and it resulted in a baby?

The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers tease that the place Katie overhears the juicy piece of information is at a bar. It makes perfect sense too because she has been desperately trying to hide her addiction from her husband, Bill Spencer (Don Diamont). Katie has the added complication that if she decides to expose his secret, she would have to disclose where [she] stumbled upon this juicy piece of info — and tell Bill she was at a bar drinking her troubles away. Face it, The Bold and the Beautiful fans, Katie will not do that. So, now that she knows Thomas is Caroline’s baby daddy, what will she do next? Blackmail is the likely next step for her.

Soap Central reported that Katie will decide to keep Ridge’s secret in one condition — if he never tells Bill or Brooke (Katherine Kelly Long) that he saw her at the bar and that she had a “few drinks.” Of course, Ridge will agree to her demands because she doesn’t want anyone ever to find out that she has continued to drink. In Katie’s eyes, according to The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers, it’s bad enough that Brooke found out she hasn’t stopped drinking — now Ridge knows, too?

The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers hint that Katie may have no other choice but to expose Ridge’s secret in hopes to deflect the blame to someone else. Soap Central reveals that Bill will find her alcohol stash and confronts her for her lies and deceit. Brooke is present during the confrontation, and of course, she blames the whole ambush on her sister. Bill insisted that Brooke never told him anything, and they both are here for her no matter what. However, Katie feels that Brooke is just buying time until Bill decides he’s tired of her and her mental issues and leaves her — for good. They try to assure her that’s not true, and she has no reason to feel insecure.

Now that Bill knows she has continued to drink, Katie may not care if he tells her husband that he saw her at the bar. Is it possible that Katie will tell someone else that she saw Ridge arguing with a stranger who revealed that Douglas wasn’t his son? The Bold and the Beautiful writers promised the viewers that by May sweeps, Douglas’ paternity would be exposed, and they decided to use Katie for that purpose. Not only does it give Heather and Tom a juicy storyline, but brings a shocker element to the storyline. Who would expect sweet Katie Logan to be one that would blackmail?
