So lets talk about a few things. We find out that Hope and Liam are not technically married in the US, and need to sign some papers to make it official. Hope is all riled up about Liam kissing Steffy on their wedding day, and decides it would be a great idea to rip up the wedding papers. Can you say “unstable”?
Speaking of Hope’s emotional and mental instability, she decides that she is going to go to Steffy and then practically give Steffy her wedding ring and Liam!! Hope is so idiotic at this point, that I can’t even write a good paragraph about this. Steffy - once again -acts like the bigger person and tells Hope to go home to her (almost) husband and make things right.
What does Hope do? She decides to move out in Typical Hope fashion, which practically paves the way for Steffy to get back with Liam. Brooke mentions this to Hope, who then says “I’m not stupid!” Well, evidently you are Hope, because you’re not going to have an almost-husband to go back to once you eventually get your head on straight (hopefully after she pops a few pills). Steffy is going to make the most of the situation to get Liam away from Hopeless.
We also have Thomas and Caroline’s discovery about Marcus’ accident! Thomas and Caroline go to the car repair shop to pick Marcus’ car up, and learn that the damage was a flat tire and a busted rim (which apparently is not a lot of damage if you were to, say, hit a person). They’re both confused over this, and while driving somewhere, Thomas hits a pothole outside of Dayzee’s Cafe. He goes out to inspect the damage and, you guessed it: flat tire, and a busted rim. DING DING DING, we’ve hit the jackpot!
Because this is a soap opera and the characters aren’t very bight, Thomas doesn’t put two and two together for another few minutes. Once he figures out that Marcus might not have hit Anthony, he goes to Dayzee’s and looks at security camera footage from that night. Thomas and Caroline discover something, and rush to show it to the judge. But by the time they get there they learn that they are too late - Marcus has to stay in jail until his hearing.
Stupidest Moment: When Brooke was telling Steffy to stay away from Liam. Steffy does whatever she wants, and you’d think that Brooke would realize that by now.
