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.”

Make sure to read the entire interview, and will you miss Nighttime Hope?

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

Days Of Our Lives

GH’s Maurice Benard and DAYS Kassie DePaiva Named “Power Performances of the Week”

Two daytime vets in two very opposing types of storylines delivered emotional and riveting work during their scenes.  First on General Hospital, Maurice Benard (Sonny) in yet another stellar knockout performance in the Alzheimer’s storyline; showed the anguish and pain of a son trying to come to terms with his father’s ultimate fate.

This week saw Sonny originally deciding to try to prolong Mike’s (Max Gail) life by having him placed on a feeding tube, but soon after seeing the fate of Yvonne, another Alzheimer’s patient, and a talk with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Sonny changed course, and did what’s best for Mike, not for himself, and decided to let his father die with dignity and with as least suffering as possible.

We don’t think there could have been a dry eye in the house when Sonny visited Mike’s hospital bedside, and told him that it’s OK for his dad to let go, and not have to stick around for him.  Max Gail, as per usual, was also so touching in these scenes.

Benard did not overplay a beat, and for anyone who has had a parent die of this dreadful disease, you could relate to what Sonny went through in the more than capable hands of this two-time Daytime Emmy winner.

Over on Days of our Lives, what a return for Kassie DePaiva in her role as Eve Donovan! This time, she has come back unhinged and at an emotional rock bottom, so much so that she had abducted Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson), had him taken to an abandoned warehouse, strapped him up, tortured him with an assist from Dr. Rolf’s protege, Vincent (Michael Teh), and came up with this twisted plot to have Ben turn back into the “necktie serial killer” and kill his bride, Ciara (Victoria Konefal).

Why, you say? Well, because Eve’s daughter, Paige was one of Ben’s victims and it has been eating Eve alive this whole time. She is a mama grieving for her daughter so deeply that she can’t understand why Paige is dead and he is left on earth to roam around free and find love and happiness… and we find out she was gutted when Ben got a last-minute reprieve when he was recently sentenced to death by lethal injection.

DePaiva played this arc of Eve’s story as a soapalicious villain, but when you really deconstruct it, Eve is just in so much pain… and all of that came through even in the darkest of scenes.  And … there is yet more to come!

Kudos to Maurice and Kassie for being named Michael Fairman TV’s “Power Performances of the Week”.

So, do you agree with our picks for Maurice and Kassie? What did you think of their work? Comment below.
