The Bold and the Beautiful” spoilers tease that Caroline Spencer (Linsey Godfrey) died and Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) returned to Los Angeles to be surrounded by family. The "B&B” fans were divided on how they felt about her death. Many felt that she still had a story to tell, while others agreed with Brad Bell’s decision to kill her off. Caroline’s portrayer, Linsey Godfrey, took to Instagram to say goodbye to the viewers and encourage the soap fans to continue to watch to see how Thomas’ story plays out. More spoilers are available in regard to what’s ahead on the CBS soap opera.

Godfrey says goodbye

Linsey wanted the “B&B” fans to know that while some are sad that Caroline died, it’s part of a bigger storyline. She said that she will treasure her time on the show and loved playing “the sassy Caroline.” However, her time is over now and Bell made the decision to kill her off to give Thomas an emotional storyline.

The actress pointed out that if the fans miss seeing her, they could tune in and watch her on “Days of Our Lives,” as she plays Sarah. And, she is in the middle of a steamy love triangle on the NBC soap opera.

Caroline’s death was shocking

On Friday’s episode (March 15) of “The Bold and the Beautiful,” it came out that Caroline had suddenly died after getting a blood clot.

She left behind a young child, Douglas. Thomas isn’t sure how to move on and he wondered if he could handle being a single father. Caroline was such a great mother that he worried that his son will not handle her loss well.

Thomas felt the best chance at them both coping with the loss was to go to Los Angeles and be surrounded by family.

He knew his mother, Taylor Haynes (Hunter Tylo), and his dad, Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye), will support him and pitch in and help with Douglas. But as Atkinson pointed out in an interview with Soap Opera Digest, past issues with his dad will soon come up and could lead to family drama.

Ridge and Thomas drama coming

Longtime “B&B” fans will recall that Thomas and Ridge have not always gotten along.

Part of the drama surrounded Douglas’ conception. There was some speculation that Thomas took advantage of Caroline which resulted in her getting pregnant. Ridge tried to hide the fact that Douglas is Thomas’ son for a while. The revelation led to Forrester family drama and ended Ridge’s marriage to Caroline.

While Ridge loves Douglas and he’s his grandson, the men never truly forgave each other. It looks like the drama will start up again between them. This time, Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) will not be in town to play peacemaker. Are you surprised by the “Bold and the Beautiful” decision to kill off Caroline Spencer?
