On Friday's episode of "The Bold and the Beautiful" Brooke tried to make peace between Bill and Ridge for the sake of their mutual granddaughter Kelly. Hope insists that she still feels that her daughter Beth is alive, and with good reason. At the end of the show, Reese presented a baby to Taylor and when she asked where he got it, Dr. Buckingham was silent. When the truth comes out Zoe will be outraged that her father has done the unthinkable. She knew he was trouble but this is a new low for the con artist, in giving Liam's daughter to the mother of his other baby mama.

Beth will be right under Hope's nose

Brooke spent the day doing damage control, first with her grieving daughter and later with the two men who are in love with her. She tried her best to console Hope over the loss of her baby and encouraged her to look to the future. Hope told her mother that she knows what happened to her little girl but can't shake the feeling deep within that Beth is still alive.

Later, when Ridge was goading Dollar Bill and the two men began to argue, Brooke intervened. She pointed out that both men share a granddaughter and should put their differences aside for the sake of Kelly. Hope's instincts are on point and soon her daughter might be living under the same roof as her half-sister Kelly.

When Taylor went to see Dr. Buckimgham, she wrongly assumed that he wanted to date her, and said she was not ready for romance at this time. Reese said he ha another reason for their meeting, then went into another room and emerged with a baby in his arms.

Taylor and Reese now have a secret

Taylor was shocked and asked Reese where he got the baby, but he did not give her an answer.

It was assumed, by viewers and spoiler alerts, that Dr. Buckingham was going to sell the child and use the money to pay his gambling debt. He may have found a different way to obtain the cash he needs to ensure Zoe's safety and simply give Hope's child to Taylor. It's also possible that he is selling Beth to Taylor for a fee.

Earlier spoilers from Celeb Dirty Laundry and Soaps She Knows suggest that Steffy will adopt the little girl as a sister for Kelly. The spoilers also say that, in time, a birthmark will reveal that the child is Beth and this is when Dr. Reese Buckingham's scheme will unravel. Be on the lookout for spoilers to update this bizarre storyline as it moves along. Continue watching "The Bold and the Beautiful" weekday afternoons on CBS at 1:30 PM EST.
