It really should've been this way from the beginning and introduced some long-lost Forrester/Hayes-Hamilton cousin to be the spoiler in a love triangle if we *must* have one.
And before that, when Hope first returned shortly after Liam dumped Steffy, SHE was the one who talked him into going to the first ultrasound appointment.
People can miss me with that Evil Logan powergrab bullshit. No, that was Stephanie and Taylor. Twice.
I've never seen a story do universally despised as the Beth kidnapping one. Not even the Ridge/Bridget nonsense, the low bar against which other bad stories were measured.
She should've yelled "Thats not gonna happen, Liam! NOT GONNA HAPPEN!" just for the lulz. I can't imagine the writers are clueless to how often that scene with Ridge and Rick had been memed.
But getting to the seriousness though, it speaks once again to her entitlement to a child that was legally never hers. And even if Beth was legally adopted, he'd be in the right to insist someone take her, too in this instance. Ridge was able to get temporary custody of Hope that time she near set Casa Logan on fire because of Nick and Donna's stupidity.
All of this. For some, the Logan can't fucking win no matter what they do. Good Lord, Brooke is a fucking moron about her personal life and wasn't Mom of the Year material, but not even she would leave kids to the wilderness to get hopped up on drugs.
