The Good & the Better!
Holy crap holy crap holy crap, y'all! My prayers have been answered! Finally someone told off that waffling douchenozzle Liam Spencer and it was glorious.
Wow. I need to collect myself a bit. It really was a special experience. And while in a way I'd rather it have been Steffy (since she's been playing the role of "I'll pine and do whatever you want forever and ever" for so long), it doesn't even matter at this point. Steffy, Hope, Hope, Steffy, it makes no difference because for him they both represent the same thing -- as Hope aptly pointed out today!
I am seriously stunned and thrilled.
Shall we review just a bit? I mean for one thing, Hope told Liam she's glad they're not married. And then let's review some highlights...
Hope: I remember how everything seemed to be my fault. I was weak, I was too busy, I was too afraid of sex, I was just too emotional. Now here we are again and you're trying to make me the problem this time, too. [...] But the truth is, there is something wrong. There is something very wrong. With you. And you can't even see it.
Sweet mercy what a gift. But it didn't stop there!
Liam: The way that you feel now, after having watched [the recording], it's kinda how I felt when I thought that note was from you. But I'm here. And I really believed that we were done.
Hope: Why did you believe it? Why didn't you have any faith in me? Oh, that's right, that's right, because I'd done it before! When I caught you making out with Steffy.
She makes some most salient points. And it got even better...
Hope: You thought the note from my father was actually from me, so that makes it somehow logical for you to jump into bed with Steffy five minutes later? WHAT KIND OF A PERSON DOES THAT, LIAM? [A douchenozzle, a douchenozzle, that's what kind of person, Hope!! --Ed.]
I mean at this point I could have just smoked a cigarette and called it a day. But there was more! She figured out that she'd been the one to interrupt Liam and Steffy's hookup and that Steffy had heard everything they said. And so what did she do? Tore up their marriage papers!!!
Oh and I cannot let one of my favorites from the day go unmentioned:
Hope: Why am I the unstable one? Why am I the one who overreacts, when your intense need to have a girl adore you makes Steffy and me almost interchangeable to you?? So much so that on our wedding day you went from me to Steffy, then back to me and it was as easy for you as changing a channel.
I am giving zero blog space to any of Liam's dopey, "Who, me?" looks today and certainly none to any of his pathetic excuses.
Three cheers, y'all. That felt awesome. If we could only follow it up with Steffy chewing him out similarly for the same crap and for keeping her on the hook, I'd throw a party.
