On THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL, Bill’s best friend (and Spencer Publications attorney) Justin is often the voice of reason when his bud tends to go off the rails. Unfortunately for viewers — and maybe even Bill! — it’s been a few months since we’ve seen the lawyer, but portrayer Aaron D. Spears revealed on Instagram that he was back on the B&B set!
In the Instagram post, Spears shared several behind-the-scenes photos, like a selfie of him masked-up in the hallway at the CBS Television City studio where the soap tapes, and on the set of Bill’s Spencer Publications office with co-stars Darin Brooks (Wyatt) and Don Diamont (Bill). “It’s about that time!” the actor wrote. “Appreciate all the love and support!”
In addition to tagging Brooks and Diamont in his post, Spears also mentioned Scott Clifton (Liam), Annika Noelle (Hope), Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke), Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy), Lawrence Saint-Victor (Carter), Kiara Barnes (Zoe), John McCook (Eric), Thorsten Kaye (Ridge), Denise Richards (Shauna), Rena Sofer (Quinn), and Heather Tom (Katie). The actor probably tagged them all in his comeback announcement because he was just excited to see all of those co-stars again, since it’s unlikely that he’ll be sharing scenes with all of them!
Spears made his last B&B appearance back in October, as Justin offered Bill his support as the publishing magnate blamed himself for Steffy’s stint in rehab. But more recently, following Liam’s involvement in the hit-and-run that killed Vinny, Bill made a phone call to his trusted friend off-screen, asking Justin to make arrangements to sell the car to a buyer in the Middle East. Does Justin know that the sale was part of a cover-up? Could Bill have placed his lawyer in a very bad position? Or does Bill have another reason why he would want an attorney present? Stay tuned to see how the story continues to unfold!
