SOW: Bo And Hope's Holiday Grief; 1/3 issue

Please link to DR.

Bo and Hope's week begins with a new piece added to the puzzle surrounding Alice's mysterious past. While they are at the town square, Bo accidentally knocks into the plaque honoring Tom and Alice. To Bo and Hope's horror, the plaque breaks in two. As they're picking up the pieces, they find a key hidden inside.

The next morning, Hope is still troubled by the discovery of the key. Bo arranges for them to meet with the man that made the plaque. He reveals that Alice's lawyer, Erin Hewitt, arranged for the key to be placed inside, per Alice's instructions. Bo and Hope want to follow up with the lawyer, but learn that she's out of town. "Hope is totally baffled," shares Kristian Alfonso. "Gran was so open about everything."

Later in the week, Bo and Hope remember ther anniversary of Zack's death. "It's the holidays, and Bo and Hope are by themselves," previews Peter Reckell. "It's just the two of them. They start talking about Zack. I can't imagine anything worse than having a child taken away from you. The reminder of that horrible experience is the person you love most, your wife or your husband. The past things that happened with Bo and Hope might have been because they were trying to push away the bad memories. In pushing away the bad memories, they were pushing away the person they love the most. Bo and Hope really see this is something that they have to work on. They realize that it might be the cause of their past issues."

Hope suggests that they see a therapist as preventive measure to protect their marriage, and Bo agrees. Reckell discloses, "It starts the ball rolling."

Huh? To the key in Alice's plaque.
And what do they mean they are all alone? Where is Ciara?
I am beginning to think that this whole Alice thing is a hoax perpetrated by Stefano to send them on a goose chase.

I'm happy Bo & Hope are going to address their grief over Zack's death. But the thing about the key in the plaque makes no sense to me. So Alice knew she & Tom were getting a plaque dedicated to them?

WTF???? You've got to be kidding me. Alice was apparently on her deathbed designing a scavenger hunt for her grandkids. This story just went from lame to fucking stupid.

So Alice knew there was going to be a HTS? And that there would be a commemorative plaque? Don't they know? Alice doesn't live here anymore!!!

At first, I was intrigued by the notion that Alice might have secrets, but, I'm sorry, I'm really getting tired of the writers constantly using Alice to reveal every single random and lame clue that comes along. Alice would not have gone to such lengths to lead or mislead her relatives down some scavenger hunt of a mystery trail. Whatever else she was, she was straightforward, blunt, and direct. Yes, she could keep secrets, but she did not toy with people and string them along. She was not some puppeteer/mastermind. This is ridiculous.

Please let this all be a sham and the clues are really being planted by Stefano or some other yet-to-be-revealed villain.

Please let Alice RIP!

If Alice didn't want anybody to know her secrets then why didn't she just let them die with her? And if she did want everybody to know, then why didn't she just fucking tell them? These cryptic clues that she left to be found make no fucking sense. I can live with Alice not being perfect, I can't live with her being dumb too.

A key in a plaque?! WTF?! Was Alice a huge fan of Dan Brown novels or something?

And honestly, "Bope attend therapy" doesn't sound like a storyline to me; it sounds like a bunch of scenes intended to give Bope screentime without actually leading to anything. Yeah, Bope will strengthen their marriage, but it's not like they're currently separated or considering a divorce. I want to see Bope have an actual storyline rather than just searching for clues or attending therapy sessions.

However, if JT came back into Bope's lives while they were attending therapy, that could be an awesome storyline with tons of potential....

:yawnz: You don't say? Because we haven't heard every time a problem occurs that Hope didn't like the way Bo handled Zack's death. And that Bo didn't like the way Hope pushed him away after Zack's death. Or that Zack's death is the reason they don't trust each other. Nope, this is brand new information!!!11one!1 :omg: :wow: :sarcasm:

But I'm glad they're finally addressing it, and hopefully putting that to rest.

And seriously, for someone who was on her deathbed or in the kitchen for 5 years, Alice sure was busy plotting Blues Clues.

So....

Hope breaks the top off of Alice's Christmas ornament to find a note from Stefano...

Bo breaks the honorary plaque in two to find a key left by Alice...

Clearly the only way to solve the mystery is to set Tom and Alice's house on fire and see what clues will pop up from that. :sarcasm:

I thought the ornament thing was bad.

The key in the plaque is absolutely laugh out load stupid. What embarrassing writing. To think that I once was excited about the Alice's secrets storyline!

The Zach stuff sounds like Bope/Marlena filler to me.

How do they find a key in a plaque that was just supposed to be made for the dedication ceremony?

Hm so when did Alice plot the hiding of the key? Was it while she was writing letters, hiding them, and sending emails from her deathbed? Oh that's right, Hope had said it had always been a dream of her grandparents to have the Town Square so Alice must have also assumed since she was going to pay for it that they would put a plaque up in her and Tom's honor. So she had years to plan the putting of the key in it. And she must have placed all these clues for her family to find once she was dead because even she knew how lame and ridiculous this whole storyline would be!!WTF?

I'm beginning to think it's all a hoax also....actually it better freaking be, because if not then at the end of this Alice will look so bad it won't even be funny....the thing is we BETTER find out that these clues have been planted by Stefano....or else...

I'm starting to think it is a hoax. Hope keeps making sure to mention that Gran wouldn't keep secrets like this.

It BETTER be a hoax. But then if it is Bo and Hope come off as complete morons for not even contemplating at how out of character and contrived all this has been.

Wow...the plaque has a key in it, because along with Alice making the best donuts ever,she could see the future and knew about the Horton town square. Ok I'm tired of this! Just give Bope their own freaking story!!
