The Bold And The Beautiful
Weekdays SABC3 18:00
There are times when a girl needs her mother, even when Mommy’s in Italy. Losing her baby on Friday 18 December was the last straw for Hope Logan (Kimberly Matula). On Wednesday 23 December, as she and Wyatt (Darin Brooks) start the dreadful process of returning the babyshower gifts, she packs up her marriage along with them. Hope walks away after cursing Wyatt for doing nothing to keep his demented mom Quinn (Rena Sofer) away from her, only to run into Liam’s arms (Scott Clifton). On Thursday 24 December, Hope admits to Liam that what she really needs is her mom. “I need to exhale. I need to sort through all of this pain and confusion and… figure out who I am now.” And so we say goodbye to Hope as she jets off to Brooke’s (Katherine Kelly Lang) side in Milan, Italy.
FIVE MOST HOPELESS MOMENTS
Perhaps leaving is for the best. Life with the Forresters and friends hasn’t been kind to Hope. Remember when… (*the dates are US broadcast dates) In 2004, young Hope (then played
1 by twins Amanda and Rachel Pace) nearly drowned when her hair got caught in the drain of Nick’s (Jack Wagner) hottub. The accident led to seizures and a coma. Then she set the living room on fire with Nick’s lighter, leading to a heated custody battle. Ridge (then Ronn Moss) raised Hope but in 2010, when she was 17, he referred to her as “a stain on the family name”. Harsh considering what he’s done to the Forrester name… Oliver (Zack Conroy), Hope’s boy
2 friend at the time, had sex with a masked Brooke at Hope’s graduation ball in 2010, believing that she was Hope, while Brooke thought that he was Ridge, which doesn’t say much for both their powers of observation. So much for that romance. Meddling Bill Spencer (Don Dia
3 mont) thought that his son Liam could “do better” than dating Hope, so he trapped her in a cable car gondola and made her watch Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and Liam’s wedding in 2011 and faked Steffy’s MRI results after an accident so that Liam didn’t upset Steffy by leaving her for Hope. Hope was so terrified of earning
4 a slutty reputation like her mom Brooke that she was terrible at sex. So to help her loosen up, her therapist prescribed anti-anxiety pills. But thanks to Amber’s (Adrienne Frantz) meddling, Hope took black market meds instead, nearly drowned again and crashed into Steffy on the ski slopes in 2012. Bill paid Deacon (Sean Kanan) to
5 mess up Hope’s wedding to Liam in Italy in 2012, and the day they were meant to sign the papers to make their marriage legal anyway, Liam rocked up with dyed hair and tattoos after partying hard with Steffy. Nobody got married that day!
Wyatt won’t win when
it comes to Hope.
