Soap Central states that Bill (Don Diamont) and Katie (Heather Tom) tried to talk about the custody issue. Bill reminded his ex-wife that there was a time when he was the only parent in Will’s life. He brought up the fact that after she gave birth to Will she had post-partum depression and abandoned him and Will. He was left to change diapers and do the feedings by himself, to say nothing of the time when she was battling her alcohol addiction. He said that although Will doesn’t know about his early days, he will find out about his mother’s behavior if she should pursue sole custody of him.
At Forrester Creations, Thorne (Ingo Rademacher) approached Carter (Lawrence Saint-Victor) about Katie pursuing custody. Carter informs him that he is not a family law expert, his expertise lies more in the corporate field, but because of his adopted brother, he has an interest in these kinds of cases. When Katie joined them, she tells them that she is still unsure about filing a lawsuit. However, Bold and the Beautiful fans saw how they try to convince her that she needs to protect Will.
In the meantime, Bill catches Justin (Aaron D. Spears) sitting at his desk and orders him out. After taking his rightful place, he laments that Katie is planning on filing for sole custody. Although he is surprised at the action Katie is taking this course of action, Justin reasons that he will have less responsibility and play the part of the “cool parent.” Bill says that he doesn’t want to be that kind of father to Will. Justin opines that if the matter should go to court, based on his immediate past, Bill could easily lose. Bill says that he has 8 to 10 judges on speed dial, but Justin points out that none of them are family law judges. Bold and the Beautiful airs weekdays on CBS.
