Hope and Liam's babymoon turned into mourning gloom when Beth didn't survive her delivery. Hope's doctor is a money-hungry OB/GYN with a debt to pay and daughter to protect, so one has to wonder if Beth succumbed to placental abruption or baby abduction this week on The Bold and the Beautiful.

B&B kicked off 2019 -- and its 8000 Series of episodes -- with a gripping tale that's involving virtually all the cast. But there's one big elephant in the room everyone's missing! Plus, peep how the soap might be penned by Two Scoops' Mike!
January 21, 2019
All dogs go to heaven, but one redheaded bitch was told to go to hell for insinuating that a puppy can replace Hope's dead baby. A dog can't replace a child, but a reformed dog might replace Katie's husband. Katie, beware: Donna is watching your man watching you with your ex, this week on The Bold and the Beautiful.
January 28, 2019
Katie assured Thorne he wasn't going to lose his "baby," and Hope couldn't get past losing hers. But Steffy had babies on the brain so much, she made it easy for Reese to go with the Flo! Line the bassinet with Two Scoops' Mike!
February 4, 2019
Last week on the Bold and the Beautiful, Steffy gave new meaning to the phrase "blended family." She hand-picked a sister, father, and aunt for her Phoebe-reincarnated baby. How long before Steffy appropriates Hope's husband? Blended families can be beneficial, but someone should put the top on Steffy's blender before the crap hits the fan.
February 11, 2019
Steffy's fam and extended fam is lost in baby bliss while Zoe senses something's amiss. Will L.A.'s newest answer to Sherlock Holmes crack the case? Get elementary with Two Scoops' Mike!
February 18, 2019
As Flo predicted, all hell just broke loose in Los Angeles. Zoe is body-shaming fake birth mothers and busting up baby brokering rings. Bill just learned to do magic, and his biggest trick was making Thorne disappear. How's that for not even trying? The abrupt departure of a signature Forrester begs the question: Why can't B&B characters get a life and keep it?
February 25, 2019
Zoe promised Reese she'd replace her lipstick with glue while several wondered if there was still glue between Bill and Katie. But Hope seemed crazy wanting to Krazy Glue Steam back together! Stick it to 'em with Two Scoops' Mike!
March 4, 2019
Liam refused to let Hope leave him like an unwanted dog -- and claimed that no one wants a Steam reunion, anyway. Tell that to Steffy, who's dreaming about it between baby feedings. While Bill pulls his family and business together, Forrester leaks employees like the Titanic. How can Forrester compete with a rival fashion house while running at half-mast with designers?

March 18, 2019
In the past three months, the Spencer family has lost two family members -- one to a tragic hoax and another when a hoax tragically became true. The young Caroline Spencer joined Caroline Senior in that great design house in the sky, leaving the rest of us wondering: was the death of this legacy character worth it just to bring Pencil Pants Thomas back to town?
March 25, 2019
Caroline's death has Hope bonding with Douglas, and Taylor trying to kiss-start another Bridge/Tridge triangle. But what's up with so many important B&B events happening off-screen? Make the invisible visible with Two Scoops' Mike!
April 1, 2019
Douglas misses his mommy now, but would he miss her if she was making mischief in his adult life? In the battle of the mothers, Taylor wants Thomas with Hope, and Brooke wants Hope with Liam; however, Quinn's plans for Wyatt and Flo might reshuffle the romantic deck in ways Taylor and Brooke hadn't anticipated -- this week on The Bold and the Beautiful.
April 8, 2019
Flo Fulton just took an ancestry DNA test, and her mother is staring at Quinn as if Quinn had just said Wyatt is the Antichrist, born from the seed of Satan. Maybe the best friends have more in common than they ever thought. Could Wyatt and Flo be siblings? Maybe -- or the paternity test might reveal that Wyatt really isn't a Spencer at all, this week on the Bold and the Beautiful.
April 15, 2019
Flo has probable cause to think she is a Logan, but since when does being a 52% match turn a stranger into 100% family? Flo might be a Logan, but how does being Storm's baby mama turn Shauna into Hope's aunt? When it comes to Shauna, haters gonna hate, and doubters gonna doubt Flo's paternity results this week on the Bold and the Beautiful.
April 22, 2019
This week on the Bold and the Beautiful, Liam wondered if he should stay or go, and Thomas added fuel to Liam's jet by playing on Hope's adoration for Douglas and Steffy's girls. Thomas claims his feelings for Hope have resurrected from the Cabo tomb, but can viewers root for a guy willing to compete with his grieving son for Hope's affections?
April 29, 2019
This week on the Bold and the Beautiful, all looniness broke loose. Thomas shifted into full stalker mode. Mommy Dearest Quinn declared no more Sally Spectra. Shauna pulled a Taser on Zoe. And Bill actually got his feelings hurt! Even with all this filler drama, inquiring minds still want to know: when is this baby-napping storyline gonna end? Seriously, when?
May 6, 2019
Imagine you're a B&B viewer who's just tuning in after a break -- undoubtedly, you'd see Flo and Shauna on every day and think, "Who are these people?" Something you might be thinking as Two Scoops' Mike makes his Soap Central return after a month's absence!
May 13, 2019
He ruined one relationship by accident and is trying to ruin another on purpose. Does Thomas' claim on Hope make sense, or is Liam right to flame him? And since when is Wyatt a hungry hungry hypocrite? Check yourself before you wreck yourself with Two Scoops' Mike!
May 20, 2019
Shauna helped Katie take another chance on Bill, but is Batie's reunion the bigger gamble? Meanwhile, Zoe's loose lips might just break Flo's bank! Call a spade a spade with Two Scoops' Mike!

June 3, 2019
Thomas thought he scored a touchdown in the divorce game that no one but Hope wanted to play. But Zoe fumbled the ball when she let Xander hear the truth about Phoebeth! Play referee with Two Scoops' Mike!
June 10, 2019
The baby-napping plot hit yet another sandbar on its cruise to nowhere when peeping Tom, up to his old tricks, blocked Xander from exposing the baby-napping scam. Could Flo's revelation to Thomas finally be the beginning of the end of this six-month-long voyage, or is it the final heap of dirt shoveled upon the secret to keep it buried for the foreseeable future?
June 17, 2019
It was déjà vu all over again as Hope and Brooke and Flo, Zoe, and Xander got caught in their own conversational loops. Thomas was the only wild card, but he went from old Thomas to new Sheila! Make the connection with Two Scoops' Mike!
June 24, 2019
On B&B, love hurts; love kills. This week, when two Hope fans go head to head over their idol, the evil fanatic wins. Thomas' obsession with Hope snuffed out Emma's devotion, and now we're left wondering -- did Thomas really just kill Emma, and is there any HFTF this storyline will ever end?
July 1, 2019
Ridge and Zoe did some competitive swimming in an Egyptian river as poor Emma got washed away for good. But Thomas is the one who's gone completely over the falls! Towel off with Two Scoops' Mike!
July 8, 2019
What do drugged sex, staged proposals, grieving children, and fireworks have in common? Thomas "Cuckoo for Hope's Cocoa Puffs" Forrester! He used all of it to get his girl, who, despite how fine he is, isn't giving up the puffs to him anytime soon. At least Liam can count on Steffy.

July 15, 2019

July 29, 2019
While we adults flail around, misinterpreting and misleading, the kiddies generally tell it like it is. This week, Phoebeth and Douglas spilled some serious tea that'll take their grown-ups months to wipe up! Believe the children are our future with Two Scoops' Mike!
August 5, 2019
This week, the person Thomas saw as the weakest became his most formidable opponent. Instead of obeying his dad, Douglas minded his mama, and it led to an astonishing revelation for Hope and Liam. That's what Thomas gets for being mean, but will others, like Steffy and Flo, get what they truly deserve? Sing hallelujah for truth week on the Bold and the Beautiful!
August 12, 2019
In the land where the sun never sets, Thomas got away with keeping the Secret of Phoebeth while Flo, Shauna, and Zoe didn't. All of which shed light on an epic showdown between Beth's two moms! Go 24-7 with Two Scoops' Mike
August 19, 2019
The baby-napping conspiracy crew faces the music, but Deejay Ridge isn't playing their favorite song. As Thomas sat out the tune in hiding, the spotlight fell on Flo, Zoe, and Xander to dance their way out of trouble. Everyone focuses on bringing Reese and Flo to justice, but Shauna is right -- Violent Thomas is who they all should be worried about this week on the Bold and the Beautiful.
August 26, 2019
Flo and Thomas both got a taste of justice this week for keeping Beth from Hope. But Flo was left to pick up Reese's pieces while predictions of Thomas going over the edge came true in an unexpected way! Take the plunge with Two Scoops' Mike!
September 2, 2019
Thomas took a terrible fall, but with the support of a loving wife, he might have a speedy recovery. Too bad he has no loving wife. Family support is scarce, too. The unconscious Thomas is surrounded by unforgivers who hate that he lied and kept secrets, but will they expect him to lie to Detective Sanchez and keep secret the details of his fall?
September 9, 2019
Vivian is back! Nicole is back! Dr. Rolf is back! Storylines we thought were dead and buried are back! Let's grab name tags and unload Salem's clown car in this week's Two Scoops..
September 16, 2019
This week, the bell tolled for justice in Los Angeles. Police closed a death investigation without questioning the only eyewitness, and Flo skated on her charges. Thanks to Ridge, Flo and Thomas' victims can't see them get the retribution they deserve. Justice is off the menu, leaving this scooper with little appetite for the baby-napping fallout on the Bold and the Beautiful.
September 23, 2019
Bridge is back in the spotlight as part of what Katie called Phoebeth's ''ripple effect,'' and the Fulton females are still trying to put their oars in. But is it time for the show to set sail for different shores? Walk the plank with Two Scoops' Mike!
September 30, 2019
Whoa! Someone get that bully a diaper change! Thomas is back and more pissy than ever. Brooke and Thomas clashed over family values like sluttiness and sociopathy. Quinn attempted to use Flo as a crowbar to pry Wyatt out of his engagement to Sally. As Katie's life hangs in the balance, this scooper wonders if viewers can live through any more predictable-storyline-itis.
October 7, 2019
News alert! There's a new slut in town, and Brooke just smacked the earrings off of her. Will the Slut from the Desert earn her name by seducing the Slut from the Valley's husband? Also, this week, Ridge pressured everyone to forgive and forget. Will Ridge be just as forgiving once he discovers that Thomas is up to the same machinations, but this time against Ridge?
October 14, 2019
As Halloween approaches, Katie faced the Grim Reaper thanks to her transplant tragedy. But there are three other undead characters who really deserve to be ghosted. Dance on their graves with Two Scoops' Mike!
October 21, 2019

October 28, 2019
It's time for Halloween, Scoopers! This week, Two Scoops celebrates by escaping the lame land of the living to revisit the bold and the dead.

November 4, 2019

November 11, 2019
Thomas is floating in a vat of hydrofluoric acid without a life preserver. Could Taylor and Ridge be about to lose yet another child -- or, like his parents, will Thomas rise from certain death to annoy Hope another day? Can this show really afford to keep killing off legacy characters?
November 18, 2019
Preemptions be damned! It's time to go back to the future in the latest Two Scoops column.
November 25, 2019
The Bold and the Beautiful characters take too much for granted. Instead of chasing Hope's tail, Thomas ought to be glad he isn't comprised of neutralized acidic scrubbing bubbles. Hope ought to be grateful Douglas doesn't have to draw bars around his mommy in his artwork. And Brooke -- she ought to be grateful Stephanie is dead! Let's scoop on who needs a gratitude adjustment this Thanksgiving!
December 2, 2019
What do soaps do to commemorate milestones? Air a stand-alone episode, of course! Travel back to when Mike started Scooping for you ten bold and beautiful years ago in this very thankful Two Scoops!
December 9, 2019
The more things change with our couples, the more they stay the same. Hope still allows Thomas to manipulate her through his son but won't be upfront with Liam about it. Wyatt is still insecure, hypocritical scum who can't be honest with Sally. Ridge wants Brooke's instant forgiveness for Thomas, and in this Two Scoops, we'll tell you why Brooke should just give it to him already.
December 16, 2019
Ridge and Brooke found out that apparently the eighth time isn't the charm -- thanks to Thomas, who did so much pot-stirring, he found himself at the center of his own marriage fantasy! Sign on the dotted line with Two Scoops' Mike!
December 23, 2019
