Bold and the Beautiful spoilers reveal that Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) invited Thorne Forrester (Ingo Rademacher) to stay at her place while he searches for an LA home. That puts Thorne right where he wants to be since B&B spoilers from Soap Central promise that Brooke is one of the reasons the handsome heir returned home. Thorne has his eye on Brooke, and that means he needs Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) out of the way. Fortunately, Ridge is sabotaging himself.

Brooke sure that Ridge and Quinn aren’t done

On Wednesday’s Bold, Brooke overheard Ridge talking to Quinn Fuller (Rena Sofer) and misinterpreted what she heard. Brooke heard Ridge saying “beautiful” to Quinn and thought he was talking about her, but he was discussing Quinn’s inspired new jewelry line. Brooke seemed ready to try again with Ridge when she told Thorne that Ridge’s “cheating” was just kissing. Brooke was certain that Ridge didn’t really betray her, but now she’s having second thoughts.

As always, Ridge is feeling cocky about winning back Brooke because she’s taken him back again and again and forgiven his cheating, lies, and betrayal. But this time, Bold and the Beautiful spoilers predict that Ridge may be out of luck. B&B spoilers from SheKnows Soaps says that Thorne keeps questioning why Brooke would take Ridge back, and she finally begins to listen. But there’s also no way that Ridge will give up that easily and let his little brother win.

Ridge lures Hope back to LA

Bold spoilers revealed that Hope Logan was recast with actress Annika Noelle, and she will debut on January 8. A new photo from the set reveals her first moments as the new Hope on The Bold and the Beautiful. Her scene partners in the first photo (see below) give away much about what brings Hope from Italy and why she’s been lured back to America. This is Ridge’s way to try and make sure Brooke chooses him instead of half-brother Thorne, but it could backfire.

Bold and the Beautiful spoilers hint that it’s Ridge who contacts Hope and asks her to come home. You can see from the set pic below that Ridge is holding onto Brooke and aiming her at the front door to her house. Hope is seen coming into the house to surprise her mother. That tells us Brooke didn’t know that Hope was coming back to LA. And it also indicates that Thorne didn’t invite Brooke back to town, or else he would be there to welcome her instead of Ridge.

Thorne flips the script on Ridge

Ridge thinks he’s got a lock on keeping Brooke at his side by bringing her daughter back to town, but once again, he underestimates Thorne. Although Ridge asks Hope to return, it’s Thorne who will bond with her and keep her around. On Wednesday’s B&B, Thorne told Brooke all about his new fashion line, Aly’s Fashions. It’s a hip, new design line, and it’s a perfect opportunity for Thorne to spend time with Hope and impress Brooke. Since Hope and Aly were close, it’s a natural fit.

Bold and the Beautiful spoilers tease that Thorne will outsmart Ridge by getting close to Hope using his Aly Fashions line so that him, Brooke, and Hope can get cozy together. Now all Thorne needs to do is win over RJ Forrester (Anthony Turpel) and he’s set. Given that RJ likes his Uncle Thorne more than Bill Spencer (Don Diamont), that might not be too hard. Thorne might be able to win Brooke from Ridge before all his said and done, which Katherine Kelly Lang teased in a recent interview.

It looks like it’s going to be brother versus brother fighting tooth and nail for Brooke’s love, according to all these B&B spoilers. But who will win remains to be seen.
