There have been several threatening comments left for Hope on the new Hope For The Future webpage, causing concern among her loved ones. Now, Katie and Thorne will kick their investigation into the threats into high gear on the Tuesday, July 10 episode of “The Bold and the Beautiful.”

Katie (Heather Tom) has just been brought in to the situation, which Thorne (Ingo Rademacher), Liam (Scott Clifton) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) were already aware of. However, while she is aware of what’s been going on, Hope (Annika Noelle) has remained out of the loop. Now, as Katie questions that decision, Thorne will explain why no one is cluing her in just yet.

“The reason we’re not telling Hope is because we don’t want to worry her in case it’s just someone trying to get attention,” he explains in a preview clip for the episode.

However, Katie will remain uneasy about keeping the truth a secret, admitting that she thinks the things that have been said are more alarming and that the situation should be looked at more seriously as a result.

“Telling Hope to watch out? I mean, that’s crossing a line,” she says in the clip.

Thorne may agree with Katie about how serious it seems, and though no one knows if the threat is something minor, or if it is someone from inside the company, they will decide to do whatever is necessary to uncover just who happens to be responsible. As a result, they will hire Ken (Danny Woodburn) to investigate, in the hopes he can uncover what is going on, and who seems to have a vendetta against Hope.

Of course, Hope will have other things on her mind even if she learns about the threats being made against her. She recently learned that she is pregnant with Liam’s baby after the brief rekindling of their romance, and has shared the news with him. Now, both she and Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) are in limbo, as they wait for Liam to decide who he sees a true future with, now that he will have children with each of them.

“The Bold and the Beautiful” airs weekdays at 1:30 p.m. EDT on CBS.
