HOLLYWOOD—Who would have thought that Liam getting two women pregnant in the same year would create so much drama? Yes, “The Bold and the Beautiful” seems to be turning their attention once again on the Liam, Hope and Steffy storyline, but with a major twist: Hope’s baby.
Look this is the storyline that has been beaten like a dead horse in my opinion. We know that Steffy’s portrayer Jacqueline MacInnes Wood is pregnant in real life and it’s certain the character will go off canvas real soon, the question we all want to know is precisely how the writers plan to make that happen.
It seems like both women are forcing Liam in their own way have to choose this child over the other child, which some would deem an utter mess in real life; thank God this is the soap world though. Anyway, baby Kelly got sick which caused a hiccup in Liam and Hope’s plans for a romantic baby moon. While Baby Kelly is expected to be fine, Liam found himself grounded. Wait for it because things get good. Why? Hope started to experience contractions, yes, it looks like Hope is about to give birth and she’s all alone.
I would be lying if I didn’t say this set up an interesting dynamic, where as I expected, Liam went to dear ole dad to utilize the Spencer helicopter to get to Hope in her dire time of need during a wicked wind storm. There’s a lot that the writers can do with this material, it’s more a question of rather they will actually do it. What I found quite interesting was the fact that Zoe’s father, Reese, just happened to be at the same resort as Hope and we know he is an OB/GYN. He has already been fed a ton of info by his new crush Taylor about Hope and Brooke.
I honestly will be shattered and I mean shattered if the writers put Hope, yet again, through the loss of a child. It already happened once; I really don’t want to see it again. In addition, as a viewer it’s an emotional gut punch to witness such a loss. This notion of Reese selling the baby to pay off his enormous gambling debt is an interesting plot point because it adds more layers to the storyline, not to mention the fact that it involves more players into the story like Reese, Zoe, Xander, Brooke, Ridge, Steffy, Liam, Hope, Taylor and Bill.
Now, we’ve seen Bill do dastardly deeds to the people he loves, can you imagine what he will do to Reese if he discovers that Reese sold his granddaughter and made everyone else suspect the child died? Whew, the moment to see that truth bomb dropped would be worth every single moment on daytime television.
This loss will not draw Steffy and Liam closer, if anything it will bring Liam and Hope closer, but it might force Hope to cross over to the dark side. It has to linger in the back of her mind that if Liam had not went to baby Kelly’s aide he would have been with her and none of this madness would have transpired. I’ve honestly been bummed with the narrative for “The Bold and the Beautiful” the past two months, but it looks like the writers have really cooked up some delicious for 2019 that will have soap lovers talking for days.
