The fire dept. will surely discover what really caused the fire (unless they are as incompetent as the SPD), Ben will be cleared, Hope and Rafe will be shocked and humbled, and maybe we can get Cen. I don't like that mash-up name but that's what they're calling it.
Hope has every right to think Ben is lying, of course. She's a cop, she's suspicious, and she is looking at some pretty convincing stuff. If posters didn't hate Hope so much they'd have to admit that things look bad for Ben. The only quibble I have with Hope about this is that she was OTT with concern for Ciara after she found her at the cop shop. It was obvious that all was fine, so she needed to chill a bit. She hasn't been hearing Ciara because she and Rafe think she has Stockholm Syndrome. She has to start truly listening now.
Hey, sometimes you have to go with the flow, it's a soap opera, it's what they do. May Ben and Ciara go back to the cabin and live happily ever after!
