Keywords=“What’s the point, just to break up Rope?” Yep, that’s good enough for me!
Totally agree with you - that's good enough for me to but, sadly, tptb will never do that! They're totally invested in this mismatch of a couple for some strange reason!
They wanted to use the remaining to halves of a fan favorite couples to try and create something new. I am not a Rafe & Hope fan as a couple, I have taken to skipping over most of their air time. Why? Because they did not let them develop naturally, it was all one sided by Rafe then suddenly everyone was a Rafe fan and urging her to get together with him the same way they fell head over heels for Aiden. If they had allowed her to develop feelings for him after his reveal then maybe. But she didn't have clue about him having feelings for her and she was taken back a bit after he voiced them.
Even having Bo ask him to look after her didn't cement them as a couple. Although I'm not a big fan of triangles, I would have rather seen her and John reconnect as close friends and ex-spouses giving Marlena something to think about than Rope. John being there to grieve Bo's loss with Hope and Steve would have been the cat's meow with ratings going through the roof. Heck, we barely got a Roman siting and he was Bo's brother. In fact, the Brady Clan was most under used during the entire s/l. They each had an opinion about Aiden and supported Hope as she moved on but this go round whiplash was the theme with warp speed emotions.
So why not bring Sami back and let Rafe leave on vacation with her. Hope got a brief break to think things over when she went to Hong Kong so why can't Rafe take some time to spend with Sami and the kids and figure out how he wants it all to work out.
