The Bold and the Beautiful recap for Wednesday, October 21, features one of the most unique episodes in a long time. Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) stole a mannequin from Forrester Creations: a life-size doll replica of Hope Logan (Annika Noelle). Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) apologized to Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) for overreacting, and Zoe Buckingham (Kiara Barnes) and Zende Forrester Dominguez (Delon de Metz) grew closer, per SheKnows Soaps.
For The Family's SakeAt Forrester Creations, Hope informed Thomas that Liam was at the cliff house. She believed Liam was going to apologize to Steffy for overreacting about Dr. John Finnegan (Tanner Novlan). She wanted them to all get along for the children's sake. She felt the same way about Thomas and Douglas Forrester (Henry Joseph Samiri). She admitted that although she and Liam still had issues with him, they were trying to work through it. Thomas felt Liam wasn't willing to consider he had changed.
At the cliff house, Liam knocked and entered. He told Steffy he wanted to apologize. He had focused on everything Finn had done wrong instead of everything he had done right. If the doctor was good with Kelly Spencer (Colette and Avalon Gray), he would back off and let them live their lives. As seen in the GIF below, Steffy wasn't convinced he was apologizing.
Finn said he understood why Liam reacted the way that he did. He was looking out for Steffy and Kelly. Steffy thanked him and said she was encouraged that he was trying to change. She said even Thomas had been on his best behavior, but it appeared as if Liam didn't believe her.
After Liam left, Finn and Steffy declared their love for each other again.
Crazy Thomas Steals Hope MannequinCharlie Webber (Dick Christie) ran into Thomas, who was on his way to his office with a big box. Charlie left. As seen below, he looked inside the package while staring at it intently.
At Vincent Walker's (Joe LoCicero) apartment, Thomas seemed to be nervous. He wondered why he had brought the package to Vinny's. At the same time, he marveled at the contents of the box and how lifelike it was. Thomas stared at a mannequin of Hope.
Carter Makes PlansIn the design office, Zende and Zoe continued to bond. She was so comfortable with him and was excited to be able to collaborate with him. They flirted before talking about Carter Walton (Lawrence Saint-Victor). Zende said the attorney was a lucky guy.
In the meantime, Carter and Charlie talked about his love life. He revealed that he was planning a big night for him and Zoe. He hoped it would be the start of their future together.
