It is buildup because it all goes along with the past few years and what Bo and Hope have been through.
The whole Zack/Chelsea thing, the plane crash and Bo's father dying, Bo's illness and nearly dying, Hope being shot and the whole Ava situation, and now this latest situation with Philip and Victor. They've been tested and been through alot and that is what is driving Bo. He's mentioned it several times since June when this stuff was hinted at. He told Hope at dinner back then about how life was too short and after all they've been through, he felt something special was in order. I do agree that Steve and Kayla should be in line before Bo and Hope but I do think there is enough there and plenty of buildup to back up this Bo and Hope ceremony too. I don't think the show needs to blatantly build up to something. That goes back to JER-style writing where he built up something so much that it made it too obvious and it was annoying. You don't always have to spell things out for viewers. I think everyone knew what Bo was planning right after his dinner with Hope in June where he talked about everything they had been through and how he had something special planned. That and the "Summer of Romance" promos hinted at it too and they aired before the last segment of the episode a few times and Bo mentioned what he was planning a few times to family members last month. The surprise angle is part of the romance and aura of it all. He's sweeping Hope off her feet in a sense. It works for who they are IMO.
