GET EM STEPH!!
I've seen emotion. I even saw some in their final scene today when the frame broke and Hope ran out with tears in her eyes and Bo came down and realizing Hope was gone and became deflated. They've been playing it recently as both of them are just frustrated. They just can't seem to agree or communicate and have no idea what to do. I've been fine with how they played it until today. I agree they seemed a bit bored today but I blame that on the writers overselling the issues. I think they feel like they have to continue to beat into viewers' brains the reasons why their marriage is a mess. They shouldn't have to do too much of that anymore. Yes, they need to address it when necessary but today just felt like overkill and the way it was presented made it seem like it didn't do anything to move things along. The picture frame shattering was just about the only thing that I felt did anything to further the story because it showed things are pretty much nearing their end, at least for now.
Regardless, I still applaud the show for the way this story has played and how they slowly built it up. It's a realistic destruction of a marriage and I would rather the show beat things into our brains then not doing enough to make the story work.
