SPOILER ALERT: Thomas (Adam Gregory) can forget about assuming permanent control of Forrester Creations anytime soon. Next week on The Bold and the Beautiful, the loved ones of the late Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery) will learn via a video codicil that the matriarch changed her will, leaving widower Eric (John McCook) her 25 percent of the fashion dynasty!
Said McCook on the plot twist in the Dec. 17 issue of Soap Opera Digest:
"Everyone goes, 'What the hell? And Eric does too!" explains the actor. "But he's thrilled and so touched that she's given one last great gesture to the company, which was a big part of who they were together, to push it into the future, and put Eric back into the CEO chair."
Stephanie's final manipulation will pit Taylor's (Hunter Tylo) children against Brooke's (Katherine Kelly Lang), as Eric orchestrates a fashion face-off with Thomas and Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) vs. Rick (Jacob Young) Hope (Kimberly Matula). Who will come out on top on the catwalk? You'll have to tune into The Bold and the Beautiful to find out!
