Rafe and Hope

Is this the lamest supposed "super couple" on daytime? Their (non) communication is tedious and they have never, even from the beginning shown the kind of great romance expected from their stature. Hope just stands there when Rafe questions her, mute and they are stagnant together. It makes me wonder what the writers think of them and where they are headed.
BTW, did Hope tint her hair in the middle of the day? - ha!
