Jane, that's a great analysis of the problems between Bo and Hope. The very best part of their scenes Friday was the broken picture frame (although it's a terrible cliche) and Hope running out in tears while Bo ran down the stairs after her--missing her by only a second. It was a great snapshot of her sorrow over losing her ideal of the perfect family and his frustration at always being not quite enough to satisfy her.

I'm so glad the Bope marriage is unraveling BEFORE anything develops with Carly. You don't need an interloper to destroy a marriage, and it's overdone on soaps. This is a very realistic situation for a long-time married couple. It is frustrating to me as a viewer because Hope is being played as such a princess bitch, but in some ways it's true to her character--just way overdone.
This and Jane's are great posts. The whole "are you happy?" scene was really strange and Hope is INSECURE and all over the place much like she's going through menopause, not to say she isn't justified in her complaints but her reactions seem disproportionate. I'm hoping they'll delve into it from this angle, IDK if they've ever done a menopause s/l but it would be great to see Hope this angelic beauty be brought down to earth.
