He learned the ex he had desperately tried to get away from wound up following him to Los Angeles. Now, as he begins to unravel everything she has done since her arrival in town, Xander will piece together that Zoe has been doing whatever it takes to find a way back to him on the Tuesday, July 17 episode of “The Bold and the Beautiful.”

Xander (Adain Bradley) was stunned when he saw Zoe (Kiara Barnes) at Forrester and realized that his possessive ex had followed him to L.A. in an attempt to reconnect again. After seeing her on the CBS soap, he happened upon the meeting over the threats made on the Hope For The Future website and was the only one who pieced together that the threats weren’t aimed at Hope (Annika Noelle), but rather Emma (Nia Sioux).

Now, after realizing that Zoe is the one who is behind the threats, he and Sally (Courtney Hope) will work together, and will quickly realize how she managed to post the threats from Sally’s computer.

“Oh my God, it’s Zoe!” Sally exclaims in a preview clip for the episode.

“You know her?” Xander asks.

“Yeah, she’s been painting at Wyatt’s beach house,” she replies.

After realizing just who may have destroyed her last chance at a career in the fashion industry, Sally will be furious and eager to confront the woman. However, she may just start by warning Wyatt, in the hopes that her boyfriend will quickly fire the artist and bar her from continuing work there.

“We think she’s the one behind the threats on the Hope For The Future website,” Sally says during a phone call.

Meanwhile, Xander will be focused on trying to protect Emma the best way he can, unaware that she has already met Zoe and unknowingly befriended the woman who may try and hurt her. Now, as the two enjoy lunch, she will remain clueless as Xander tries to get in touch with her—but Zoe teases her about her new relationship.

“It looks like someone’s boyfriend is trying to get a hold of you,” Zoe says in the clip.

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