I feel like Bo and Hope's destruction of a marriage is missing something. There's no appeal to this story. On one episode, you have Bo wanting to work on their marriage and Hope refusing. The next episode, Hope wants to move back in and Bo refuses. And then the cycle continues each day this story is featured. And then, when they have these heart-to-hearts, I feel there is no drama here. It just seems like two people disagreeing over what to cook for dinner rather than their marriage ending. Where are the emotions? I remember that one scene where Peter Reckell knocked it out of the park, grabbing Kristian Alfonso. They both really brought it then. Now? Not so much. The writers need to step it up if they think we're supposed to get care about the last remaining supercouple's marriage ending.
I think the writers have done plenty. I think the issue is that we've seen this sort of scene a thousand times. I think they've gone overboard laying out the Bope issues. They shouldn't worry anymore about some people still not getting it. Frankly, if people STILL don't get why this is happening, then don't even bother. Let's just break them up and move on. The reasons are there. The show built up to this and gave us enough scenes of them arguing and talking about their issues. Let's have one big blowout and move on to them apart because that is what is needed now. PR and KA looked more interested in trying to keep it fresh then playing out the scenes. They did their best but it's time to move on and, thankfully, it appears we will be.

I love what we are seeing with EJ and Arianna (SIZZLING chemistry) and loved the scenes with Brady today.

I also loved the beginning of Vivian's revenge and it was nice seeing Lexie. Melanie/Vivian was a hoot too.

I agree with Jane about Rafe. I like his attitude and LOVED his scenes with Stefano. The boxers or briefs line was hilarious!

The Anna reveal was awesome. Couldn't agree more about the music. Stellar!
