Days of our Lives, super couple, Bo and Hope, have gone through such a tough time over the past year, but it seems that Kristian Alfonso (Hope) and Peter Reckell (Bo) have been enjoying the strain in their on-screen relationship.  The duo caught up with Fancast’s, Sara Bibel at the Television Critics Association Party in Los Angeles.  During their discussion, Alfonso and Reckell told Bibel their thoughts on the machinations of Nighttime Hope!

Peter and Kristian on Nighttime Hope and their current situation: Alfonso: “They definitely can’t throw Bo and Hope right back together.  Otherwise, what was the point of the story? To play an off-center, off-kilter character is [fun.] I have to say, I felt bad for her!” Reckell: “She did such a great job the people on the set, the camera guys would be like, ‘She can’t leave.’  She was a great character.”

Yeah, Nighttime Hope was a lot more interesting than the usual Hope. Keeping her around as the new villain, and keeping both versions of her away from Bo, would be much more entertaining than boring Hope and boring HoBo. But now that her run is over, I’d much rather see her rot in prison or tied up in a straight jacket for life than bringing all this blame to Bo and having HoBo reunite due to Bo’s guilt and obligation. This “supercouple” should just end things for good because this relationship, especially since she just tried to kill him (which also killed the ratings), is highly dysfunctional.

shut up you don’t know what you are talking about.
obviously you haven’t been a fan of the show.
maybe you show catch up and get with it. they are the best characters in the show.

Wow, that’s real mature. Lol. Um, my comment is almost 2 years old. Why reply to it now? It’s irrelevant now. And no, I’m not a fan. I stopped watching about a year after this comment. The show sucks and my opinion of Bo/Hope has not changed. They’re boring, dysfunctional, and clearly not helping ratings. I would say Bo can do better, but he may not even be around soon. So enjoy them while you can b/c with the news the Peter Reckell may be leaving, you may not have much longer with them.

NT Hope is such an improvement to Hope’s character, I would like to see NT Hope stick around and strike up a relationship with Dr Baker. Hope & Bo are just snooze worthy, might as well send them to Switzerland if they HAVE to be together cause Hope is just toxic to Bo’s character. Bo is charming and smile’s with Carly, never liked Bo at all till Carly showed up and I saw a whole different guy. Days needs to stop caving to fanbases and write real stories or the show is going to be history!

Bo and Hope are the only reason I watch Days…so I am looking forward to them getting back together. But I agree with Kristian, they can’t just throw them back together after the year they’ve had. It’s got to be a slow build and they have a lot to work through – which I can’t wait to see them do. I am hoping that is the next phase of their story.

I also think Kristian did a fantastic job as NT Hope…I loved that she was given the opportunity to do something different and show her range as an actress.

I absolutely loved NT Hope and thought Kristian did a brilliant job. She brought so many layers to the character and was able to show off her amazing range and tallents. And yep, I sure as heck will miss her. She was loads of fun and added some spark to the show. Ratings were on a downhill run before this story, and the slide pretty much stopped once this story started.

As for Bo and Hope, they ARE Days. They are the only reason I’m still watching the show and I think this week’s outstanding scenes showed why they are still so popular among viewers. But like Peter said in his Emmy interview with you Michael and like Kristian says here, I hope the writers don’t rush them back together. I want it to be done slowly and properly, so they can work through all their issues, individually and together, so there relationship can be stronger than ever before. When give the intense, emotion-packed stuff, Peter and Kristian deliver in spades. I can’t wait to see what happens for their characters over the coming months.

im a big bo and hope fan i want bo and hope back together already

Bo and Hope are the last of the couples I cared about. This storyline has been so dark its been painful to watch…as a divorce survivor, particularly so. As a DOOL fan for over 40 years, it has left me ready to abandon the show. I have watched over the years because it was fun, a great escape with a little angst. This storyline is not. Its like a badly written Tennessee Williams play. This sl has also changed the characters of Bo and Hope too drastically and in ways that have made them unlikeable. The only way I can see them coming back together is having their therapy on the show so the viewers can get some sort of explanation of their bizarre behavior and see them grow as people and as a couple. Obviously, that would take time and need to be thoughful and well written. If the storyline continues as a triangle with Carly, I think DOOL will continue to lose a lot of long time viewers like me who are offended by the adultery, the disregard for Ciara’s feelings, and the disrespect for long time Bo/Hope fans. That said, I absolutely don’t want them to come back together with a never ending guilt trip from either party. I want them back as they were when romance and adventure were part of their relationship. I want to see some maturing as a couple with signs of compassion and understanding so they can play the role of Tom and Alice. I want to watch something fun instead of endless angst!

I TOTALLY agree with your comments. This is the most disrepectfully storyline that I have every seen on DAYS. They are basically saying it is alright to cheat and stay married. I just fast forward when I even remember to watch the show. I want something to remove me from what I see everyday. Bo’s character has lost ALL since of respect in my eyes. For him to throw away over 25 plus year for a 2 yr fling with CArly while Hope of away is ridiculous. I find it highly applauing and it just makes me want to vomit!

I do not mind Hope being a tad deraged.
I do not mind them having to separtate to work things out in their minds.

I DO mind the fact that Bo has the nerve to bring another women into the home he built with Hope. I DO mind the fact that he is CHEATING ON HIS WIFE and does not care about his daugther seeing him like that. I DO have a problem with the writers of this show displaying this image of Bo & Carly as if it is OK for a man to have a wife and then find an ex-WHATEVER and cheat on her. BO is a freakin idoit and the writers of this show are full of crap. This is the most sickening story line I have every seen on DAYS and I have been watching for over 30 years. I wish they can explain how Bo can go from telling Hope he loves her, he was wrong, he did not this, he did not that to getting in bed with Carly like everyting is all right DOES HE NOT SEE WHAT AN A _ _ THAT MAKES HIM LOOK LIKE!

i want bo and hope to have long proper reunion

Hope and Bo have always been my favorite couple of all time. I am so glad to see them back together. Thanks to TPTB!!! Always disliked the Carly character…maybe she can go back to Transylvania or wherever it was she met Jen. 🙂

MAGIC, that’s Kristian and Peter (Bo and Hope) from the very first day today and it just grows and grows. So happy to see Days FINALLY bringing this “supercouple” back together, slowly. Been watching since the very beginning and there’s just nothing like these two. Their love will NEVER die and they are soulmates. thank you Days for FINALLY getting it right.

Jacob Young shared an exclusive that he is set to direct, produce and star in a Agatha Christie-like murder mystery feature film aptly tiled Murder Between Friends.

Speaking on the upcoming project, Jacob said, “I’m flying at the end of the March to Prague to direct, produce and star in a film with Joan Collins (ex-Dynasty). Nadia Bjorlin (ex-Chloe, Days of our Lives) is in it, and Toby Alexander Smith from Eastenders (ex-Gray Atkins). Plus, a couple of my Broadway friends and a very well known Czech actress (Hana Vagnerova).”

According to Jacob, the production start date is April 1st. He added on the premise of the film, “It’s very Agatha Christie sort of ‘Knives Out’ without having a hundred million dollars to shoot it, but still will be a lovely film nonetheless.” Young said the plan is to finish all principal photography by April 17th.

IMDb has more on the film. It shared that former All My Children star Trent Garrett (ex-Asher Pike) is listed as co-directing the feature. Mark Rozzano is listed as writer of Murder Between Friends.

Days of our Lives Star Blake Berris Chats On the Everett Lynch/Bobby Stein Mystery, Working with His New Co-Stars, and the Last Christmas Episode with Bill Hayes

On Days of our Lives, the return of Blake Berris is making for some very intriguing drama, with the audience guessing just which way the story will go.

When Berris arrived back on Days of our Lives, after previously playing Nick Fallon, he was taking on the new role of Everett Lynch, who has a past with Stephanie Johnson (Abigail Klein) and Jada Hunter (Elia Cantu). Only, as it has been revealed, the past he had with Jada was under the name “Bobby Stein,” who from what we can tell was far from a nice guy.

Blake visited the Michael Fairman Channel for a livestream interview this week, where fans in the live chat were weighing-on what could be the truth about the guy – is he a split personality suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder? Did the accident that cost him a year of his life in a coma, never happen? Recently, someone set fire to the beloved Horton house. Fans are suspecting it would have been “Bobby” who is working for Clyde Weston (James Read). Others believe that Everett/Bobby could actually be Clyde’s son. With upcoming therapy sessions with Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) about to start, things are about to get more juicy in Salem.

Here are just a few excerpts from our conversation with Blake on a myriad of Everett/Bobby subjects. Make sure to check out the full interview for more.

Did you know that they were going to make Everett Lynch a Jewish character? This is only the second time in the history of the show that they have even had a Jewish character on the canvas. Didn’t they reveal this at the Horton family Christmas episode?

BLAKE: No, they never asked me. I am half-Jewish on my dad’s side. There was never like, ‘You’re Jewish, right? We can call you Jewish on the show?’ At the Horton Christmas, “They made a real point of it, yeah.”

And now the new ‘character’ is “Bobby Stein” …

BLAKE: “Right, and that suggests more Jewish, and then Lynch must be coming from somewhere else, maybe the mother. I was so curious because I think the show has been historically, I’m gonna say, Catholic more than like Wasps. With the Bradys there’s this sort of Irish influence, and then the DiMeras, that’s Italian. So, we’ve got Catholics sort of on both sides that are dominant. Now I, “represent”.

What has it been like working with Abigail Klein?

BLAKE: I think she is extraordinary. We start off sort of frosty, or she’s frosty with me, like she doesn’t want to let me in. And then, for a while things are going really well. I just could not adore Abigail more. She’s such a good actor. I could always rely on her to bring me back into a scene and be there in this emotionally, supportive way.

Everett and Chad seemed to be becoming friend-ish, when all went awry when at the PCPD interrogation room, Everett let him know about Elia and Bobby Stein, and Chad let him have it for worming his way back in to Stephanie’s life.

BLAKE: Billy would call us the ‘disgusting brothers’ and that’s a reference from Succession, because all of a sudden they’re just so chummy with each other. It’s like all of a sudden we just had this like ‘Bernstein and Woodward’, sort of dynamic duo. I think that Everett really started to think of Chad as a friend and feels sort of disappointed, and he feels, “Oh, it’s that easy? I just needed to have some other identity and now you’re a fair-weather friend?”‘

In recent scenes, Jada sees Bobby Stein for the first time, and we see you and Elia Cantu share scenes with each other for the first time. What is it like working with Elia?

BLAKE: She’s fire, man. She comes in hot and she tells you the way it’s going to be. I think early on, we were trying to suss each other out and the more we worked together, the more comfortable you get with somebody. I think actors do this sometimes with each other; if there’s spice on screen, you like to keep some of what you have on-screen in your (real-life) interactions because it helps … it helps the work.  Eventually, we just sort of wore each other down and we’re like, ‘I actually totally get you, and you’re great.'”

Did you know that they were going to make Everett Lynch a Jewish character? This is only the second time in the history of the show that they have even had a Jewish character and didn’t they reveal this at the Horton family Christmas episode?

BLAKE: No, they never asked me. I am half-Jewish on my dad’s side. There was never like, ‘You’re Jewish, right? We can call you Jewish on the show?’ At the Horton Christmas, “They made a real point of it, yeah.”

And now the new ‘character’ is “Bobby Stein” …

BLAKE: “Right, and that suggests more Jewish, and then Lynch must be coming from somewhere else, maybe the mother. I was so curious because I think the show has been historically, I’m gonna say, Catholic more than like Wasps. With the Bradys there’s this sort of Irish influence, and then the DiMeras, that’s Italian. So we’ve got Catholics sort of on both sides that are dominant. Now I, “represent”.

You were on set and in the annual Horton Christmas episode which sadly marked the last for Days of our Lives legendary Bill Hayes, who passed away in January of this year.  What do you recall of that tape day?

BLAKE: It was the Christmas episode when we were watching Susan (Julie) and Bill, say ‘Merry Christmas.’  And there was something about it that just felt like it could be the last time. I mean, it wrecked us all on set. Bill gets so choked up and there was something really profound about the moment. They kiss each other as they have so many times before on the show. It was just beautiful. It felt beautiful to be there for that last Christmas. He’s just such an icon. Every time I’d see him, he was so with it … he knew my name, he knew his lines. What an incredible, incredible man.

Fans will get to see Everett in therapy sessions with Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)? Would you say she is helping the guy?

BLAKE: Deidre’s always making jokes about Marlena, ‘She’s the worst therapist in the world’ (Laughs) I remember in the first therapy session, we almost couldn’t get through the scenes because it’s just so clear that Everett has a litany of very profound psychological issues that he is going to have to work through. He’ll keep coming back. This guy’s gonna pay the bills!

Viewers are waiting to see how they mystery of Everett Lynch/Bobby Stein plays out. What can you say as a tease for what’s to come?

BLAKE: As far as a tease, I would say, you have all these characters sort of, trying to wake up the ‘sleeping giant’ in a way. I think it’s safe to say that like if you poke a bear, the bear might wake up.

Watch the livestream chat with Blake in full below.

Now let us know, what do you think is going with Everett/Bobby? What has happened to him in his past? Share your theories in the comment section below, and make sure to catch Days of our Lives next week on Peacock for more to his story.
