I love Bope, but I could careless about them renewing their vows. This plot twist would have made sense when they reunited after the fiasco of Zach's death. Now this just seems like contrived fluff with no real meat or meaning behind it. I feel like higley writes sl ideas on slips of paper, sticks them in a large pickle jar and then pulls them out at random, and goes with them. This show is not flowing at all. Much of what is being presented is just confusing...no real direction and no clear end in sight where this is all going...I just sit and go WTF? Why is this happening.....These are not the characters I know.
I donīt want to defend Highley, but I really donīt understand what is confusing or contrived at this. Bo almost died this year, his pop died for real, his real dad is on the verge of death right now, his daughter almost died, his brother was just shot (it sounds really funny when you put it all together). The vow renewal is pretty much in character IMO. And itīs also something what builds for atleast a month now. Not, the show never openly say what Bo plans. But there was enough signs for fans to understand and I think there will be even more in the next two weeks. Itīs also not isolated event because Boīs part in the hiding of Paulīs tape will be revealed at the same time and who knows what else. This is obviously the main event before the Olympic so I think most of the stories will be culminating along that date.
I don't get it either. I clearly remember scenes where Bo is talking to his Mom about a surprise for Hope. As you mention, Jane, the near death experience, the opportunity for them to start working together, their little girl...........them getting Shawn out of town (OK, I'm kidding here :D
).........The writing already hinted at this. If anything, the problem is they put too much time in between the hints and the actual event.
I don't want the writers holding neon signs saying "LOOK HERE!!!!! BO IS PLANNING A SURPRISE FOR HOPE THAT INVOLVES VOWS!!! STAY TUNED"...........That's not necessary.
If people think it's cheesy and a waste of time, fine. Hell, I will even agree it a slap in the face to Tanna fans or even Steve and Kayla fans because they never got anything like this. However, all the complaints about it being random and so on I can't see.
As for SC, I'm not even sure the pairing with Kate can save his character. They ruined him so badly. He had so much potential early on. Not only that but they've made Chelsea into a lovesick teenager when she is supposed to be a mature, feisty college student. What makes it even worse is now they have her in training to be an occupations therapist. So, on one hand, they are giving her a job that would make her appear older then she is in many regards and, on the other hand, they are having her act like a 16 year old obsessed girl when she is with Daniel. I don't get it. I was even ok with Chan early on because I saw signs of potential but after about two weeks, it all went downhill from there.
