Clip at the end - angst or temporary closure? (General Discussion)

The song at the end was "Hands of time", already used 3 times in 2014 for Hope and Liam.

I just wonder if that ending scene was just angst and a way to show they will get back together in a near future. Or if it is some kind of temporary closure!? I am NOT saying definitive closure, because we all know Hope and Liam will never be definitely over. For me "temporary closure" means they are done for a good amount of time. (minumum 6 months)

I know that when they played this song for them in 2014, they didn't get back together. The clip I posted happened after she married Wyatt, and we know what happened afterwards. She stayed with Wyatt, lost the baby and left.
They played a similar scene when Steffy caught Liam and Hope in the dressing room. Liam was at the cliff house, Steffy was in her car headed to Bill's office. They both had a few flashbacks with a song, and I saw it as closure for their relationship. They haven't been together since this episode aired.

So I wonder what this flashback scene was all about. Hope and Liam seem in a pretty bad place now. He made it clear he can not be with her if she doesn't cut all ties with Thomas, but she isn't willing to do that. Hope also made it clear she can not be with a man who loves 2 women, and Liam looked her in the eyes and said he loves Steffy.

Unless Liam suddenly changes his mind and accepts having Thomas and Douglas in his life with Hope, he can not be with Hope. Unless Hope changes her mind and accepts to forgive him and share him with Steffy, she can not be with Liam.

Even if the truth about Thomas setting her up comes out, I don't think it would change anything for them. Douglas and Thomas would still be in Hope's life and the fact that Liam kissed Steffy back and admits he loves her had nothing to do with Thomas. Even if Steffy tells Liam the truth and he runs to tell Hope, these issues would still exist. They are in an impasse.

Where do you think this is going? Are Hope and Liam just apart for a few weeks and they'll reunite once the "big secret" comes out and Thomas-Steffy are exposed? Or are they done for a good amount of time?

Hi, thank you for the link with the song! I knew I had already heard it once before, but I couldn't remember when or how.

I don't like Hope&Liam together, but this scene was very sad. I do hope the couple is done, though. Both characters deserve better. I want Hope with Thomas, and Liam with Steffy or Sally.

Sure, Hope deserves better, but certainly NOT that sexual predator Thomas who purposely kept her beloved Beth away from her. Thomas doesn't care about Beth at all....all of his deranged fantasies don't include Beth, so he is NOT better for Hope. IMO.

It's up to Hope to decide. No one can decide for her. According to spoilers, she wants a man who is all about her and isn't torn between women. She likes this quality about Thomas and she is going to find comfort in his arms of all people, so I think she doesn't see him the way you do.

If Thomas is written as a good father-designer, loves Beth and makes Hope happy, I think they would be incredible together. This is what I would like to see. :)

Thomas cares only what Thomas wants and what he wants doesn't include Beth, so I doubt Thope is ever going to be a viable couple..especially if Thomas is actively seeking revenge against Hope's mother, so that will be another issue for them.

Not to mention, Thomas used Zoe and slept with her..I don't foresee Zoe given up on Thomas that easily (even if Hope "falls" for Thomas which I doubt she will anyway).
