Ridge spoke by phone to Brooke who decided to book a flight back home. Eric explained to Thomas that Thorne moved to Paris to work through his grief at losing Darla and Aly. With Thomas home, Taylor pleaded with Steffy to stay in Los Angeles so the whole family could be together. Hope took Douglas on an adventure to her cabin to give him family time. Thomas told his parents what was happening in New York. Ridge was surprised when Taylor suggested that Hope might be a good match for Thomas. Katie was impressed by how much Bill had changed. Wyatt assured Liam that he is not alone. Brooke got a surprise upon arriving home.

Hope takes Douglas to the cabin yet Liams daughter has never been there. She is a piece of work.

How about just having a scene where Hope actually holds Kelly. I'm still waiting on that one. :whistle

Why? The episodes last 19 minutes. You think the fact that they don't include every single thing the characters do in their lives in that 19 minutes means we should assume they never do them?

If Hope is supposed to not care about Kelly don't you think the writers would allude to that in the dialogue? There has not been a single thing shown or said on the show to indicate that she doesn't care about her.

I highly doubt the writers put their heads together and say..."We need to show that Hope doesn't care for baby Kelly. Let's never show her holding her. That'll do it." :oops

Well they haven't shown it and why not? She is Kelly's stepmother and she hasn't picked her up and held her onscreen. Maybe you don't find it strange but I do. And there certainly has been plenty of time in 19 minutes of some show over the last nine months to have her hold Kelly for 30 seconds while at Steffy's house. I'm not saying she doesn't care about Kelly at all but there appears to be a "distance" being kept for some reason IMO.

They don't even show Taylor holding her. Should we assume she doesn't care about her granddaughter?

She certainly has been shown with Kelly. Not too long ago Kelly was sitting on her lap on the couch.

So Taylor's only held her once in the last several months. She hates that baby. :whistle

Where did I say just once? I gave an example that they do show Taylor holding and interacting with Kelly. Unlike Hope.

I don't see Taylor holding her much, if at all. And all the time she's been here I've never seen her get on the phone or face time with her grandson Douglas. She hates that kid too.

If you say so, but Hope still hasn't held Kelly. :lol

It's so funny that the viewers are supposed to believe Hope doesn't like Steffy's daughter while Steffy herself hasn't noticed it. :-D

Well I didn't say she doesn't like Steffy's daughter so maybe I'm the wrong person to state that to. I just happened to notice that there is no onscreen interaction between Hope and her stepdaughter and I find that strange since she has been to Steffy's house so many times.

Well, once the baby switch story is over we'll probably never see these kids again, except for the occasional holiday episode. ;-)
