The House of Forrester is in trouble
If John McCook is not leaving The Bold and the Beautiful and Eric Forrester lives there will be a great fallout in the House of Forrester. Soap fans know that all secrets come out eventually and there are several related to this storyline. Eric believes that no one knows he is dying except RJ Forrester ( Joshua Hoffman), Luna, (Lisa Yamada), Donna Logan (Jennifer Gareis), and Katie Logan (Heather Tom).
At the end of Wednesday's episode, Eric was in a room full of people who knew about his condition. Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye), Brooke Forrester (Katherine Kelly Lang), Carter Walton (Lawrence Saint-Victor), Thorne Forrester (Winston Harmon), Bridget Forrester (Ashley Jones), Zende Forrester (Delon de Metz) Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) and Hope Spencer (Annika Noelle).
Eric will be destroyed by the deception
If Eric finds out they all know he is dying he will realize RJ did not keep his secret. There is also the fact that Ridge Forrester lied to his dad about the fashion challenge. Eric would be heartbroken if this news reached him that he did not have the best fashion collection. If he's not dying this news could kill him. Would The Bold and the Beautiful allow Eric to die with these lies hanging over his head?
Eric will feel angry and betrayed if he finds out that his entire family was pretending they do not know his medical condition. Spoilers say Bridget and John Finnegan (Tanner Novlin) may look at Eric's records and find something Dr. Colby may have missed and come up with a way to cure him while some fans believe he will die.
Will the lies catch up with everyone?
On Facebook, there was a post yesterday saying McCook has Parkinson's in real time which is why he is retiring. Others say McCook has stated he will not go unless they drag him out which sounds more like what Eric Braeden (Victor Newman) on The Young and the Restless has stated on more than one occasion.
Fans are pointing out that it's unrealistic that someone in Eric's condition has not been in a hospital to obtain extensive testing. If Briget and or Finn look at his records and find something off the Forrester founder would still need to be hospitalized for treatment.
Fans also say there is something not right with Dr. Colin Colby (Justin Davis) who just looks at his patient. B&B viewers also want to hear what condition Eric has been diagnosed with. Coughing up blood suggests something may be wrong with his lungs and the tremors appear to be Parkinson's Disease.
The misleading information could destroy the family
Fans have not come up with anything that would cause both but Eric passed out and required oxygen last Friday with no official diagnosis given. If Eric lives will he be able to forgive his family for lying to him or should he process that he was lying first by not telling them about his illness?
Some who watch the CBS soap are saying online they are so tired of all of the depressing scenes they just want Eric to die and end it all. This is probably not the response the powers that be at The Bold and the Beautiful were expecting.
Some who watch The Bold and the Beautiful are saying that it is cruel for fans to watch these heartbreaking moments of Eric reflecting on his life and his past with Stephanie Forrester ( Susan Flannery) if it's all a sham. Viewers don't know what Brad Bell and his writers are thinking but their decision has caused chaos both on and off screen. Stay tuned to find out what happens next in the Forrester/Logan world.
