They both also kept the secret from Steffy, Hope and everyone who deserved to know the truth about Baby Beth, even though he wanted to reveal the truth the entire time. Now, with the whole story out and their roles in the lying exposed, Xander and Zoe will begin to face the consequences of their own actions on the Thursday, August 15 episode of “The Bold and the Beautiful.”

Zoe (Kiara Barnes) was the one who continually warned others not to say a word about the baby swap as they learned it because she was trying to protect her father, who was the one that orchestrated the entire crime. The secret was something her boyfriend, Xander (Adain Bradley), refused to keep however when he learned it on the CBS soap, but all of his attempts to reveal the truth were thwarted by Thomas (Matthew Atkinson), who then threatened them both, as well as Flo (Katrina Bowden) about revealing the truth.

Now, with everyone still trying to track down both Reese (Wayne Brady) and Thomas, and Flo waiting to learn her own fate, the time will come for Xander and Zoe to learn the punishments they’ll receive for keeping such an explosive secret that not only tortured Hope (Annika Noelle) and Liam (Scott Clifton) for months, but has now exposed Steffy (Jaqueline MacInnes Wood) to immense heartbreak as well.

“Brooke and Ridge confront Zoe and Xander with consequences,” spoilers reveal.

Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) will want to make sure that everyone responsible for their various daughters’ pain pay for their crimes, and while Reese and Flo, and potentially Thomas, may be eligible for jail time for what they’ve done, Xander and Zoe may not be. Still, they could wind up having something come their way for what they’ve done—including losing their jobs.

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