If Brad Bell was asked... (General Discussion)

...how the character of Hope Logan was written, what do you think he would say? Would he say she's written as a selfish, heartless character? Or as the good girl of the show? Because if this character is supposed to be heartless, then why all of the dialogue of how she's a good person? How she radiates goodness? Liam always telling her that her goodness is what attracts him to her?

And specifically, in the scene where Liam goes to see Hope after Steffy's baby died, do you think Bell and his writers were trying to tell the viewers that Hope is a terrible person that was taking advantage of the baby's death? Was that the narrative of the story line? Or was it a plot point for Hope to tell Liam that she wanted to restart their life together and needed to tell him that before he got Steffy pregnant again, as Taylor told Hope was going to happen?

I'm not asking what your personal opinion of Hope is. I'm wondering what you think the WRITERS are trying to put forth as the character of Hope.

Maybe everyone says she is good because she is always reminding everyone she is good and how she lives by those lofty standards that apparently no one else lives up to. Apparently the definition and standard of goodness has been lowered to the level Hope has sunk to. Good people don't do the things that Hope has done.

So, you don't think Liam thinks Hope is a good person?

I think she portrays herself to Liam as a good person. She is always telling him how good she is and she always compares herself to Stffy as being better.
