'Bold And The Beautiful' Spoilers: Carter Promoted In Steffy's Absence

The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers for Thursday, October 1, reveal Carter Walton (Lawrence Saint-Victor) is up for a promotion. It appears as if management will entrust Forrester Creations' attorney with more responsibilities because he has proven to be an asset and provided exemplary service, per Highlight Hollywood.

Steffy's Absence

Spoilers tease Carter will be promoted when Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) heads to rehab. She just admitted she is addicted to prescription painkillers and will need to seek treatment to overcome her addiction. Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) made it clear he wouldn't return Kelly until she can prove she's clean.

Those who follow the soap opera know Steffy plays a very important part in the family business. Together with Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye), she runs the fashion house as co-CEO. Ever since she had the accident, she's been working from home and taking care of her daughter.

However, management may need to do some reshuffling now that Steffy's out of the picture. Since she won't be at work for the foreseeable future, the company will need to assign her role to someone else.

Eric Forrester (John McCook) has been taking a low-key approach for many years, while Ridge already has his hands full as the head honcho. Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) has only just returned to Los Angeles and is only interested in the designing aspect for now. This opens the door for another non-Forrester to take over the reins.

Carter's New Role

It seems likely Carter will be the acting co-CEO in Steffy's absence. He has years of experience with the organization and will be able to manage her duties comfortably. Also, Ridge trusts the attorney and their good relationship will help as they'll be working together.

Carter will jump into his new position eager to prove himself. Of course, he already has a few fans who think he will do an incredible job. One of those is his new love interest, Zoe Buckingham (Kiara Barnes). As seen in the above GIF, Carter makes her smile. They have been getting to know each other and have even shared a kiss or two. She will be one of the first people to congratulate him warmly.

But with Carter's new position comes longer hours and a shift of attention as he focuses on his work responsibilities. The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers tease Zende Forrester (Delon De Metz) will return to Los Angeles, and it won't be long before he makes the moves on Carter's neglected girlfriend.
