So Rick's had an attack of conscience and decided to tell Hope that Liam and Steffy didn't really kiss the night before Liam and Hope's wedding, and he and Othello made that up so that she would give Liam the permanent (and very necessary) boot. So, you know, great. We've been watching this unfold for weeks as if it's some momentous piece of information that will CHANGE EVERYTHING.
So here's the big storyline: Hope has just learned that Liam didn't kiss Steffy the night before their wedding. And the show is treating it like this is Earth-shattering. Despite the fact that the audience knows that Liam and Steffy kissed almost every single other time they were in a room together. (Proof can easily be found in a random sampling of screencaps on MONTHS worth of my B&B posts right here!) So what the hell's the difference?
I realize the show seemed to be presenting it at the time as a bunch of little innocent friendly kisses. On the lips. Between two people who were constantly repeating that they were still in love with each other. You know, innocent as can be! But to do that the night before the wedding, at a club? ULTIMATE BETRAYAL. The entire rest of their engagement? NO BIGGIE.
