Bold & Beautiful Surprise Return: There’s Only One Person Who Can Stop Paris and Thomas’ Engagement — and It’s Not Hope! (1)

Credit: Howard Wise/JPI (3)

We don’t know what Hope’s reaction to Thomas’ The Bold and the Beautiful proposal will be, but there is one thing we do know: Paris is not going to be happy! Thomas may be just trying to prove a point, figuring Hope will turn him down again, but we’re getting some serious Buckingham deja vu!

Because after all that went down with her own sister, Zoe, Paris is downright delusional to think this engagement is a good idea! And that’s why it’s the perfect time to bring Kiara Barnes and Zoe back!

For those who don’t remember, Thomas wooed Paris’ sis back during his dangerously obsessed with Hope days. The goal was to make Hope jealous, not believing that Zoe would say yes to his proposal or that they’d ever make it to the aisle. But they did, only for it all to crumble around poor Zoe the second Hope showed up at the wedding to expose Thomas’ obsession and manipulation.

Bold & Beautiful Surprise Return: There’s Only One Person Who Can Stop Paris and Thomas’ Engagement — and It’s Not Hope! (3)Thomas did just what everyone warned Zoe he would do and jilted her right at the altar for the woman he truly loved: Hope! And now Paris is marrying Thomas, as Hope’s wringing her hands and he’s trying to prove a point… by proposing to her!

No matter what Hope says, there is no way Zoe would or should keep her mouth shut. Everyone warned her against marrying Thomas and she pushed forward anyway. This is when she needs to come sweeping into town, raise some hell and talk some sense into Paris before this goes too far.

Because even if Thomas thinks he’s over and done with Hope, everyone but him and Paris knows that’s not true. Zoe needs to give her sister a serious dose of reality and a heaping pile of “What the hell are you doing?!”

Sure, Thomas told Hope that Paris didn’t care about any of that Zoe stuff, but talking about it in the abstract is one thing. Having her sis shake some sense into Paris something else entirely! Or, if that doesn’t work, Zoe can always spike Paris’ drink again on her wedding day, so she can’t get out of the bathroom long enough to marry Thomas…

Either way, someone has got to talk some sense into Paris, and few folks can understand exactly where she is right now like Zoe!
