She says Steffy is going to be supportive of Hope when she gets back.

She says Thomas's scheming is going to get even more maniacal.

I think it's ironical that before Steffy left in March, in her last scene with Hope and Lian, she said she was leaving town to give them some space, so they can work on their marriage. She told them they needed time alone. And she said when she gets back, she wanted to see them happily married, stronger and maybe expecting another baby.

Result, she comes home and things are WORSE than when she left. Their marriage is only hanging by a thread, Hope has been trying to gift him the whole time Steffy was in Paris. They only had sex once and she doesn't want to get pregnant again. She has spent more time with Thomas and Douglas than she did with her husband. She is keeping dirty secrets from him (the kiss and the proposal) and defending Thomas against her own husband. Steffy is in for a lot of surprises. If wonder how she'll react when she realizes Hope is suppodedly the love of Thomas' life.

Not to mention Flo. Now she is a Logan. Steffy adopted Hope's grandcousin. And the mother of her baby is now working at Forrester and living in her grandfather's house. What a mess :drunk
I foresee a Flo/Steffy rivalry. I don't see how they can get along, under those circumstances.

Regarding Thomas, I've been reading such awful spoilers about him, since he got back. How evil, monstruous and criminal he is supposed to be... Sheila and Quinn were supposed to be saints, next to him. :drunk All kind of bad stuff, even that he would get Hope drunk and rape her, or kidnap her so he can have her for himself. Yeah, I'll believe it when I see it. I don't see him blackmailing Hope, drugging her or making agressive overtures towards her. I don't see him locking his rival in a cabin or texting him with Hope's phone. When/if he does this, I'll say he is a horrible person. Until now, he is only "bad"... as bad as all the people who tried to break up marriages. All he has done is expressing his opinion about the whole situation and making his feelings for Hope clear (and drawing a fake picture of course) And Hope defending him and keeping secrets from her husband. Maybe he will get more maniacal and commit crimes, I haven't read the script in advance. But I won't bash him for things that haven't even happened yet. Let's see how things will play out, but I give Hope the credit if she is the one who decides her marriage is over. No one is forcing her to gift Liam, ignore his wishes and keep secrets from him. She knows what Thomas wants, he made that crysal clear and she can put a stop to his "manipulations" if she wants to. Will she, or will she continue to side with him? She is the victim of Reese and Flo, but when it comes to her marriage potentially ending, she is no victim at all IMO.

Thanks for the link. I'm a bit tired of Hope and this baby swap, but I have been impressed with AN and her acting in this big storyline. Can't wait to see what's coming next. :cool

Nah. I think Hope and Liam are actually doing better. She told Thomas in no uncertain terms that her loyalty is to her husband. If something else happens it's going to be because Thomas pulls out all the stops and, like Annika said, does something even more devious.

I don't think Hope not telling Liam about the kiss and proposal is being played out as her "keeping secrets". The show isn't focusing on that at all, in contrast to when Bill kissed Brooke and it was an issue for Ridge and there were several references to it.

I like the idea of a Steffy/Flo rivalry. That would be interesting...and something different for a change. :cool
