The Bold and the Beautiful has a funny habit of dispensing with characters in, let’s say, odd ways. Flo simply stopped appearing. Maya kinda vanished. And Wyatt… well, at least he got brought back to unload his beach house.
But a show that doesn’t know what to do with a charismatic scene stealer like Darin Brooks is a show that has a problem on its hands, and we don’t want that fate to befall Bold & Beautiful. So perhaps we could draw some attention to the fun-filled comeback storyline that’s just waiting to be told for Liam’s half brother.
Go Without the Flo
Imagine Wyatt and Flo’s engagement was broken. This shouldn’t be hard; we’ve all hoped that he wouldn’t tie the knot with Shauna’s daughter, haven’t we? Their breakup took place on a visit to her mom in Reno. Big blowout. Tears. Accusations. The whole nine yards.
In the aftermath, Wyatt goes out on the town and gets schnockered. A showgirl named Candi notices from the stage that his smile appears to be painted on. So once she’s changed out of her headdress and rhinestones, she sidles up to the bar next to him intent on showing him a good time.

A Night to Remember
The day after, Wyatt discovers that he not only took Reno by storm, he took Candi to be his lawfully wedded wife. “Oh, crap,” he says to himself. “I pulled a Ridge.” Except that isn’t what happened at all. Over coffee, Wyatt and Candi put together the pieces of their gin-soaked evening and recall that they were having so much fun that they didn’t want it to end.
“Why does every night have to have a morning?” he remembers asking.
“Maybe it’s like dates,” she remembers suggesting. “The first date has to end, or you never get to the second one.”
Wyatt can picture it in his head. He shrugged at that. But an idea was forming in his head. “Unless you’re married,” he said.

Let’s Do It, Let’s Fall in Love
Inspired by the combination of their fizzy chemistry and stiff drinks, Wyatt and Candi headed straight for the nearest chapel of love and made it official. “So now what?” she asked.
Then, in unison, they answered, “Honeymoon!” as they ran back to his hotel room and consummated their union with all the enthusiasm of kids playing on their first jungle gyms.
Of course, reality would bite when Wyatt would decide to back Candi’s line of showgirl-inspired fashions — with a big influx of cash from Daddy Dearest. Can you imagine Bill and Liam’s reaction to Wyatt introducing a bride who is basically a modern-day Gypsy Rose Lee? We can — and we’d love to see it play out.
