It looks like the Forrester family is circling the wagons and coming together in Eric's time of need.
TV Insider reports that two of Eric Forrester's children will be returning to Los Angeles. Ashley Jones and Winsor Harmon will once again step back into the roles of Bridget Forrester and Thorne Forrester, respectively.
It's been more than a year since Jones last appeared on B&B. In that most recent stint, Bridget filled in at the hospital during a staffing shortage. Outside the hospital, she and Quinn caught Eric doing a little staffing of his own with Donna at the athletic club.
In an Instagram post, Jones said that she "love[s] being back at it with my favorite work family ever." Soap Central scoured the attached photo, which you can see below, for any clues about what might be taking place on the show -- but there were none. Jones, however, teased that she had "[l]ots of stuff to shoot."
It's been a bit longer since Harmon appeared on the show. He was last spotted on B&B's Brookecentric 35th anniversary episode in March 2022. In that episode, Brooke reflected on her past loves.
Meanwhile, B&B supervising producer Casey Kasprzyk gave fans a bit of a tease of what to expect in the weeks ahead.
"Filming 10 shows this week, and let's just say it's going to be very emotional for everyone. #BoldandBeautiful #EricForrester," Kasprzyk wrote.
Eric doesn't want his family to know of his failing health, but might Bridget -- a doctor -- be able to offer her dad some sort of treatment to extend or even save his life?
Harmon will make his first appearance on Tuesday, December 5. Jones returns the following day, Wednesday, December 6. B&B has not yet said how long the two actors will be sticking around.
