I disagree. I think it's the perfect time to give Hope a big storyline. Lapsed viewers are going to be tuning back in for Alice's tribute. They need a big storyline amongst the main cast to be running simultaneous, so that you can hook viewers to stick around, after the Alice stuff is over.
They did a wonderful job of this, during Mickey's death, by interweaving Carly's storyline into it. If I hadn't already been watching, I know that confrontation scene between Carly and Hope at Mickey's wake would have been enough to reel me back in. I feel like that's why they carried a lot those rating gains into sweeps.
Unfortunately, while Carly's storyline was peaking, I don't think they did as good a job of transitioning Sami, EJ, Rafe and Nicole back into being the A storyline again and we've seen major ratings drops since then.
Of course the caveat to this working out is Hope's storyline can't suck.
