Question about Thomas and his brain tumor... (General)

palmettogirl, 5/25/2023, 9:55PM (325 days ago)

If Thomas had the brain tumor when the Beth drama occurred, could that have played a role in his actions? Not excusing what happened, but maybe the underlying medical issue was involved. He is absolutely responsible for all of his despicable actions since his brain surgery, but that's a whole other story.

He had a subdural haemorrhage. Not exactly the same as a brain tumor. (Pam had a brain tumor, for example)

The explanations of the doctor were very vague. Thomas banged his head a couple of times before the doll story but was was this hematoma recent or had it been developping for months? It was never specified. It's something that should be asked to the actor or Casey if they ever have another Bold Live. I think it was left open to interpretations.

No Pam had scar tissue removed. She did not have a brain tumor.

Interesting. I was convinced it was a brain tumor. I will try to find the transcripts.

A hematoma lasts weeks (at most) not months. I know it's a soap but It wouldn’t cause sociopathic behavior even hallucination like the ones he had are a stretch.

thomas didn't have a brain tumor, he hit his head and it caused bleeding, and that happened more than a year after all the heinous things he did during the beth storyline

Pam did have a brain tumor, but she also hated Donna before the tumor....so if the tumor thing applies to Tom, then it means he hated Beth anyway....which should make Hope hate him.

Who cares? And that is not what happens when someone has a brain tumor and has cognitive issues....they do not do what Tom did with calculation and deliberation. He is vile, and Hope seems to not give a damn that he wanted Beth dead. That makes Hope vile. So on that note, they are perfect for each other, both are vile and disgusting and neither one cares about Liam's daughter Beth.

Thomas’ brain was examined after Brooke pushed him off the cliff. They examined his brain. They didn’t find anything wrong with him at that time. During the mannequin story, he supposedly hit head on the table and that’s when they found this damage so apparently his head was injured after the Beth story. Thomas has never been diagnosed with a tumor to my knowledge.

Thomas knew about Beth for all of two weeks and did go to Steffy to tell her immediately, but he saw Steffy and Liam there playing with Kelly and Beth and he didn’t have the heart to tell Steffy and went into protective mode to spare Steffy.
That’s when he did the blackmail but Brooke did the same thing years ago and kept Thomas Paternity from Ridge along with Thorne for over a year so I’m not understanding her holier than tough attitude about Thomas,
Brooke even went as far as to move her wedding up an hour to keep Taylor from telling Ridge the truth belt her married her.
She’s always schemed and that’s why I can’t get on board with this whitewashed version of Brooke Logan who is the proverbial victim in every storyline!

And in the next episode, Thomas went to Hope and intended to tell her about Beth. But then Hope told him she was so grateful he was back and that he is there for her. She told him she agreed to date him and take things slowly, and wanted to see where it could go between them. That doesn't excuse his silence but when Hope revealed she wanted to try, it obviously changed everything for him.

He kept the secret that a presumed dead and kidnapped baby from the parents. There is no excuse.

No excuse, but the reasons were explained. First he saw Liam Steffy Kelly and Phoebe happy enjoying family time at the cliff house. Second he was madly in love with Hope and just when he was about to tell her about Beth, she tells him how happy she is he is back and tells him she wants to start a relationship with him. That's the moment when he decided to keep quiet.

Again, none of that matters. It was horrendous of Thomas to do that to someone he claimed to love. Thomas is selfish. He was only protecting his garbage self. He picked many moments to keep quiet. And each one was a distinct choice to allow Hope to believe her child was dead. There is no forgiveness for that.
