Why is Hope not telling Brooke, Liam and Zoe... (General Discussion)

If anyone has the power to put an end to Thomas' (supposedly so devious, evil, monstruous) plan, it's Hope.... Liam already told her that Thomas admitted to his face that he's using Zoe and Hope is his endgame.... Then Thomas directly told her how much he loves her and how he still wants to be with her.... She knows he used his son before and And today she saw him kissing Zoe in front of Douglas, which means she knows what he is doing....

She has the power to fire him from her line... She has the power to help her mother's marriage out, by telling her that she is right (and Ridge is wrong) about Thomas still wanting to be with her.... She has the power to prevent Zoe from lot of heartbreak, if she repeats what Thomas said in front of her... She has the power to cut most ties she has with Thomas (except the co-parenting), all she has to do is repeat what he said, expose him to Brooke and Zoe and stay away from him...

But no... Instead 1) she is still working with him, praising and complimenting him for his designs.... 2) She hides her last conversation with Thomas from her mother and tells her he is getting better and is no longer interested in her... 3) She continues to pretend Liam is wrong about Zoe and Thomas' relationship, instead of telling him the truth.... 4) She intends to let Thomas continue to lie to Zoe, she intends to let Zoe move on with a man knowing he would drop her in a heartbeat if she snapped her finger... (And finally, as Douglas' mother it's also her job to explain the boy that while she and Thomas are co-parenting him, they are never going to be together again... she is giving him false hopes instead)...

Apparently, Hope doesn't care about Liam's fears and what Thomas put him through and how he threatened him.... She doesn't mind that he is using her collection as a mean to be close to her... She doesn't care about her mother's marriage (or she would tell her the truth, instead of telling her the opposite)... She doesn't care about Zoe and the fact that Thomas is settling for her because he can't have her (or she would have run straight to Zoe the moment he told her)...

For all these reasons I can't see Hope as a victim... She knows what Thomas is doing with Zoe and Douglas and she knows he still wants her... She is still working with him, taking his side and siding with him aagainst Liam... She hasn't tried to put distance between them and still hasn't told Douglas his dreams won't come true... and won't tell Zoe or Hope the truth about her conversation with him..... She is lying to everybody and isn't doing anything to put an end to Thomas' quest!!!

This isn't what's happening at all. Hope knows that Thomas wants her. What she doesn't know is that he's only using Zoe to make her believe that he's trying to move on.
