4.   Hope Pretended To Be Pregnant To Avoid Sleeping With Her Husband

Hope married Larry Welch because she was forced to do so by Stephano and his associates, who threatened to kill Bo if she didn’t do what she was told. However, Hope didn’t love Larry and had no intention of sleeping with him, so she faked medical records while working as a candy striper in the hospital. Hope took great pleasure in telling Larry she was pregnant with Bo’s child, unfortunately, no one told Bo.

When Bo found out about the pregnancy, he thought he had lost Hope for good, until Grandma Alice found out the truth and set up a meeting in the tunnels so that Hope could clue Bo in on the mess she had found herself in.

Bo and Hope’s fans rejoiced until they ended up apart again.

6.   Hope Did Not End Up With Alice’s Donut Recipe

7.   Hope Ran Away From Home And Was Almost Raped

Hope ran away from home and ended up staying at a seedy motel where two men were working raping young runaways and forcing them into prostitution. Hope met a man who was very nice to her and offered to buy her dinner, they were meeting a friend of his who was leaving town, or so he said.
