The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoilers tease John McCook was considering retirement. It didn’t help that the current storyline appears to be a final storyline for Eric Forrester. But it looks like McCook isn’t going anywhere; his storyline will continue for a while.
Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) and Eric are battling it out on the runway. They agreed to let the customers decide which line has the better designs.
The speculation that McCook was retiring started when Eric said this line would be his final line because of his hand tremors.
It seemed like B&B was giving the viewers one more big storyline for McCook before he retired.
Let’s walk through what will happen in the next few weeks. Ridge and Eric will continue to be at odds with each other, each determined to win the top-line spot on the runway.
Eventually, Ridge will learn about Eric’s hand tremors.
The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers have not revealed how Ridge discovers the shocking news, only that it will come out at the end of Fall sweeps. Ridge will realize why Eric’s line was so important to him.
RJ Forrester (Joshua Hoffman) could likely expose Eric’s secret. He may determine that his granddad suffers from something much more severe than arthritis.
RJ is enjoying working with Eric and learning from such a fashion icon. The tension in the family will increase as RJ refuses to quit Eric’s line.
Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) pushes RJ to move to Ridge’s line. She thinks Ridge would enjoy working alongside his son. But RJ refuses. He’s content working with Eric for now.
Eventually, Eric’s secret medical condition will come out. It will shock the family as they will realize that the line will be his final contribution to Forrester Creations.
There’s something bigger going on with Eric’s health. The viewers believe he may have Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease. However, B&B hasn’t revealed his health crisis yet.
The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers say that John McCook signed a three-year contract in early September. He will be on the show through 2026.
