The Bold and the Beautiful: Hope Marries Wyatt on the Rebound
As soon as things became rocky for Hope and Liam’s relationship over Hope’s accepting the Hope for the Future diamond from Wyatt, Wyatt dropped any pretense of accepting Hope and Liam’s relationship.
On the flight to Paris for a press tour and photo shoot featuring Hope, the diamond and the Eiffel tower, Wyatt began reminding Hope that Liam was a constant source of disappointment to her and that he, Wyatt, had never let her down. Wyatt still wanted a life with Hope he told her. But Hope resisted Wyatt’s advances and told him that Liam was meeting her in Paris after the photo shoot to get married.
Liam misses his meeting
With the photo shoot and subsequent press conference wrapped up, Wyatt walked Hope to the “special spot” where Hope was to meet Liam at 3pm. Hope waited in the sunshine for Liam to arrive. Wyatt waited in the distance hoping that Liam didn’t come. He had an agenda of his own to work.
Unbeknownst to Hope and Wyatt, Liam was in Paris and making his way to Hope but was delayed in getting to Hope when Ivy was pushed into the Seine by Quinn Fuller. Quinn, pleased with how her plan was turning out watched from a Parisian café through stolen binoculars as Hope began to worry about Liam’s absence.
By the time Liam fished Ivy out of the Seine and made it to his meeting place, Hope was gone.
Wyatt swoops in
Wyatt wasted no time once Liam was officially late. Again he reminded Hope that he had never disappointed her and he still wanted to be with Hope. A rejected and jilted Hope left with Wyatt for the Spencer jet. Wyatt and Hope were headed to Monte Carlo and Bill Spencer’s yacht – the Stella Maris.
En route, Wyatt kept up with the messaging. Liam had let her down again. Wyatt had never let her down. A dejected Hope simply listened still trying to make sense of Liam’s rejection. Hope did finally agree that she was tired of the disappointments and getting her hopes up just to have them come crashing down time and time again.
