The Bold and the Beautiful recap for Monday, June 10, features Xander Avant (Adain Bradley) at Forrester Creations with Zoe Buckingham (Kiara Barnes). He told the model that he could not tell Hope Logan (Annika Noelle) and Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) that their daughter was alive because Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) had intervened. He relayed that Thomas had set off his car alarm, which forced him to go outside. Thomas then pulled him aside and demanded answers. Zoe wanted to know if he told Thomas anything, but Xander told her that he did not.
Zoe told Xander that she felt horrible for not telling the parents that their daughter was alive, but she did not want to go to prison. Xander opined that the only person who should go to jail was Reese Buckingham (Wayne Brady). He pointed out that Steffy was getting more attached to Phoebe (Madeline Valdez and River Davidson) with each passing day, and that they needed to act immediately. He begged Zoe to do the right thing and begged her to understand why he wanted to tell the truth.
Thomas accused Florence Fulton (Katrina Bowden) of being a liar, per She Knows Soaps. He could not believe that Beth had not passed away and told her that Hope’s grief was real. Flo then revealed that Reese had switched a stillborn baby with Beth. Hope thought that the stillborn child was hers, Reese had swapped the children so that he could sell Beth. She told him that the doctor had gambling debts and was in a lot of trouble at the time. Thomas became irate and yelled at Flo. He could not believe that she had helped to sell a child. Thomas suddenly realized that his sister had adopted Beth.
“The baby you gave up was Beth? Steffy adopted your baby. Phoebe is Beth? Phoebe is Hope’s daughter?”
Flo confirmed the truth to an astonished Thomas.
