In a later episode, Hope implied that she isn’t heterosexual, revealing she once had a crush on Josie. Danielle told TVLine she’s excited to see what effect the confession has on the girls’ relationship.
“I guess I always knew that Hope was pretty sexually fluid, so that didn’t shock me,” the actress said of the plot twist. “I’m glad [the writers] established it in the real world, instead of in an alternate universe, so it can be a real thing. They can leave that there now, and we can move forward onto other things.”
