The answer to the title is an unequivocal yes, at least for me.
I mean, do we even have to debate on that? Liam and Hope are practically what soap operas are! They are the lifeblood of these shows: a pair of star-crossed lovers who are continually separated by a gazillion factors. I don’t even buy these other people trying to get in their way. They will be together again, no matter what.
Of course, in the world of soap operas, the question of when they will be back together is rather tricky to answer, especially when there are some events on these shows that just happen in a snap, while there are others that just get buried in the sands of time. While there are other characters that get older by 20 years after just one season, there are those that just go unresolved.
Of course, for Liam and Hope fans, the latter option is unacceptable, and as a fan (there, I admitted it), their storyline is one that will not be forgotten, unless, say, we get confirmation that the world ends by December and TV execs have decreed for all soaps to end. Other than that, we shall see Liam and Hope back in each other’s arms.
I can see a couple of factors blocking this reunification, and I dare say temporarily blocking it. No way will they be successful in permanently separating Liam and Hope. Unless the producers want mass riots of B&B fans, which I doubt a lot.
Temporary block no.1: Steffy Forrester
The mention of her name (no make that the sight) of her name gives me the creeps. The conniving, ruthless, and oh-so-beautiful daughter of Ridge Forrester is just bent on destroying the Liam and Hope love team. From a blood clot to staging a make-out session with his supposed-to-be ex-husband Liam, Stacie (or sorry, Steffy) will just not stop until… I don’t know. I don’t even know if she really loves Liam, or what her purpose with him is. Does she really love him? Does she just have the hots for him? Does she just want anything Hope has (so Oliver storyline)? I think it’s the combination of everything, but I just really hope she’ll be gone in the picture of Liam-Hope ASAP. Besides, she is backed by her equally evil father. Of course, she will not give up without a fight, but… whatever. Thinking about her just drains my energy.
Temporary block no. 2: Hope herself
Well, it seems that Hope just is not ready to forgive Liam. Or is she? Last week’s episode of her smiling and crying while looking at her ‘wedding’ pictures in Italy seems indicative that she will always love Liam. But with Steffy’s orchestrations, I really hope she comes to her senses and puts up a fight for her man.
I could only hope Hope (pun intended) snatches Liam back from Steffy soon. I am so over Ms. Forrester and her seemingly endless good luck when it comes to Liam.
