What else could possibly bring Bo and Hope at odds that wouldn't be forced? This is realistic and stems from the characters and their history. they never did solve their issues stemming from Zack's death. That was one of the things Hogan disappointed me on at the time. He only resolved the Hope and Chelsea conflict. Bo and Hope never really talked things out and worked through everything. It was all kind of slept under the rug because they had to deal with the ending of the Patrick stuff and Ciara being born. Then we didn't see them hardly at all for months and when they were brought back in the mix they were thrown into the Brady/Dimera stuff. The issues were never truly worked out and that is why I am glad the show has had both Bo and Hope allude to that fact. I hope the show continues to mention the issue of Zack's death going forward.
Also, Bo and Hope have ALWAYS had trust issues going back to when they first got together in the 80's. He was always keeping her in the dark about things because he felt it was best or that she couldn't handle it and Hope has ALWAYS acted like an extreme bitch when she didn't like how he handled something or when he kept something from her. What is happening now is not out of character for either of them. In fact, it's about time the show use the internal conflict that has always existed to further story between them. I'm so excited they finally are and the best part is you have two past characters in Justin and Carly that share chemistry with the both of them and that are likable so fans can deal with them possibly being paired with them, especially Carly and Bo who have fans and are very popular.
The Ciara kidnapping situation brought all their issues to the surface and here you have a story that is driven by the characters of Bo and Hope and the conflict that exists between them. It's a good soap story. Nothing is being forced. Neither Justin or Carly has any romantic interest in Hope or Bo right now. It's all being played naturally and set up beautifully.
I also disagree about Chloe and Nicole's friendship. Yes, it was forced at the beginning but it's been well over a year since they first became friends so I've come to accept them. They have enough in common, not that it matters. I have friends I barely have anything in common with. I don't think it matters much. They bonded over hating Sami in the beginning and they both also bonded over the difficult love lives they both had. There is plenty there to bring them together and have them be friends. They've both been through alot this year and supported each other so their friendship is pretty much solidified now.
Couldn't agree more about Kate. It's awesome having her in the mansion. Loved her scenes with EJ and her fight with Chloe. I also enjoyed the Lucas and Chloe talk. I'm glad they played up the Chloe/Allie relationship and the effect the split had on her.
I'm very happy with how the Carly return has played out. It's not rushed or forced. It has been paced wonderfully so new fans can get used to her. I enjoyed her scenes with Omar and the flashbacks were great. Glad we got a Nicholas mention too. Bo and Victor and Justin and Hope had some great scenes too.
That last scene with Nicole and EJ was fantastic. I love how she left in tears and you saw him looking upset after closing the door and the way the camera just panned back before the scene faded out. Beautiful and effective scene right there. Very emotional. I also loved the way Nicole's expression changed when she noticed the luggage when she walked in the mansion. She was so hopeful and that shook her up but she went right back to being hopeful when EJ came downstairs because she just can't bare to give up.
Just a wonderful episode. The show is just amazing right now.
