i second this. i'm all for Hope having a love interest, but there really isn't a suitable one for her currently on screen. Hope being a lead character again would be a dream come true. It's been forever since she had a real story, and even longer since it was a main story that other stories/conversations/scenes branched out from.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
it would be highly OOC for Hope to jump into bed with anyone that isn't Bo, and she definitely wouldn't do it so soon after his death. Bo jumped into bed with Emmy soon after Hope's death, but Bo's never been able to keep his pants on.
then again, i'm sure Tomlin's just been itching for a chance to fuck with Hope, and what better way than to either have Bope break up off-screen or have Hope find out Bo's dead and then have Hope sleep with Rafe as soon after as possible and realize that she's not just fond of him, but sees him in a sexual way.
there's no way Hope & Rafe getting together would ever make logical sense.
I'm a big Bope fan too, but seriously, out of all the men currently onscreen, Rafe makes the most sense for Hope. I do agree with you on the rest, but I see no reason with Peter no longer part of the cast that Kristian should be pegged into a hole where Hope has to be the next Maggie with Mickey offscreen. I say kill off Bo (in a way that allows him to come back, ala no body found), and let Hope have a real storyline again.
THIS! I don't want Hope celibate and on the back burner. Kill off Bo (in some mysterious Salem way where he can be resurrected if PR ever comes back) and let Hope find another love interest after a reasonable period of mourning. There's no replacing Bope, but I still want Hope to be leading character on the show and that includes having a love interest IMO.
