DAYS Kristian Alfonso Special Message To Fans: "Thank You For Taking The Journey With Us, With Bo & Hope."

For those who watched Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives, you know that the iconic love story of Bo (Peter Reckell) and Hope  (Kristian Alfonso) came to a tragic end.  But it afforded an opportunity for fans of the supercouple to get much needed closure, something they were not able to have three years ago when Peter Reckell left the series.

However, as we previously reported, DAYS delivered a tearjerker episode where Bo dies in Hope’s arms.  On Friday evening, after the episode had aired in all markets, Kristian Alfonso took to her Twitter account with a special message.  It spoke about the opportunity she and Peter Reckell were given decades ago joining the NBC soap opera, the undying love from the audience for Bo and Hope, and how this marked the end of an era.

Kristian tweeted: “Pete & I were given an incredible gift when we joined @nbcdays . Thank you all so much for all your Love & Support through the years.  Thank You for taking the journey with us ,with Bo & Hope ❤️”

Beautifully put, as sad as it is to know that all good things must come to an end.  Alfonso summed up how much the support from the audience has meant to both herself and Peter Reckell.  But in good news, Kristian had just signed a contract extension with DAYS to stay put, so expect lots of drama ahead for Hope.

Is hard to believe it’s the end of Bo and Hope?  When did you first fall in love with the duo?  Were you watching them back in the 80’s?  What do you think about the sentiments shared by Kristian to the fans? Comment below!

Friday was a sad show but Bo and Hope done a wonderful job.

Happy for DAYS fans that their supercouple had an entire episode devoted to beginning, middle and end of their relationship. GH fans will never have that for Luke & Laura, which is sad.

That’s exactly what I kept thinking. As a GH viewer, I thought that Tony’s last episode should’ve been devoted to Luke and Laura. Good for Days for honoring one of the all time best Supercouples.

Saddest day in the history of Days of Our Lives, but absolutely great acting by Peter and Kristin. Bo and Hope definitely was an icon and their stories on Days will be missed as well as Bo. DOOL will not be the same. Good Luck to Kristin on her future endeavors on Days and Good Luck to Peter and his family on their future endeavors. May God Bless You All!!!

Yes I have watched Days from the first day it aided.with my mom.. She was in ICU on Oct 21, 1993. She threw a fit because she couldn’t have a tv in her ICU room.. We all laughted . But sadly at 1:30 she passed away. 30 mins into the show. She lived for it and so do I, We both loved to feel the love that Bo and Hope seemed to have from day one.. It was a fairy tale love that we could only live through them.. Will miss Bo deeply. Thanks for the joy you have brought… Read more »

The final scenes were very well written and acted. It’s a shame so much of Reckell’s return was wasted with him locked in a cell.

Chloe
Guest

I agree. Friday’s show was one of the best. I put it right up there with the death of Isabella. But why did they waste over 2 months of Peter’s return with the cell scenes instead of getting him home quickly & letting Bope spend a couple of months together? Hope would have gone back to Bo had he returned then & we would have been spared the vilification of poor Aiden, who could have been paired with someone else [Jenn?]. The cell storyline crept along like a snail but the Bope reunion was so fast that if you blinked,… Read more »

The writers were thinking how much time Peter was willing to commit to DAYS.

All the captivity scenes were probably taped in two days. The scenes of him on the floor for a few weeks were taped in a day and sprinkled throughout the long period to lure a larger audience back. It was to prepare people for the end.

He most likely did everything in two weeks, but was paid for each episode he appeared in.

I seem to recall Peter and Stephen Nichols speaking of the two taping seven episodes in one day.

Bo and Hope were already on when I started watching in March of 1984. I thought they were great (my favorites were Pete and Melissa)!

Bo was pushing Hope away because of all the danger. Larry Welch made a play for Hope and eventually Bo had to kidnap Hope from the church where she and Larry were to marry. Hope was then forced to marry Larry with the help of Stefano because Stefano’s daughter, Megan, wanted Bo.

Their popularity exploded with the visit to New Orleans and Oak Alley Plantation just outside New Orleans.

I have watched days from it first aired as it was my Mom’s favourite show which of course became mine. I was watching Bo and Hope from they first were on the show and have been part of their journey all the way through to the end. I am glad Bo came back to give closure to us (the fans), of course it goes without saying that I would have liked him to stay on and have Bo and Hope be the new Alice and Tom but I guess in real life it is not very often that would happen… Read more »

I live in the Netherlands. I began to watch days around the time Gina/Hope opened the puzzlebox. From that moment I knew they where THE supercouple without knowing there history. After that I learned the history throug books, their flashbacks and the internet. It’s very special and rare. They don’t air days anymore in the Netherlands, so I try to catch up from time to time. And now that bo came back I was totally in this story. Fridays episode was heartbreaking but so beautiful. I will cherish their lovestory on days forever. I was born in the year they… Read more »

Another month, another week either one would have made his dying come out of Sweeps, which was the point. If they kept PR on until Feb sweeps that might have work, but I don’t they were willing to shell out any more money to keep him around. I was surprised they worked out a deal for his this short amount of time. As I said on another thread story on soaps nowadays often dictated not for viewers but for a network bottom line.

I wish Bo did not have to die I would have loved Hope and Bo to take over Alice and Tom place on the show . They do not have a couple to do that. I know things have to change but why Hope and Bo.Maybe Doug and Julie can stay and take over Alice and Tom.The show will not be the same with out Bo on it.

Looking forward in seeing what story line Kristen is going to have. Good luck Peter in what you do next and I hope you and your family will be doing well. Enjoy being with your family.… Read more »

I’m mad as hell over it to be honest. Bo and Hope should have never ended, these two iconic characters from two legacy family should have grown old together and been around for their great grandchildren and as a bope fan for 32 years it annoys me that we didn’t get that. I understand actors leaving etc but I would have rather Bo went to a clinic somewhere to try to be saved or stayed in prison instead of being killed. Yes it was a beautiful love story but I will always have issues with Bo being killed… I am… Read more »

Mary
Guest

Having Bo go off to a clinic somewhere to be try to be saved or staying in prison would not have been fair to Kristin Alfonso (Hope) who would have been left in permanent limbo. The only way that would have worked is if DOOL intended to recast Bo because Peter Reckell made it clear he will not be back.

Friday’s episode was very sad and hard to watch. Bo and Hope we’re the couple that everyone wants to have. You both had a special bond. It’s hard to believe that it has come to an end.

Watched them from the start. Best couple ever!!! Best looking couple ever!!! Saddest ending to them…sure, Peter & Kristian have both left the show at various times, even our beloved Hope was thought to be dead at Ernesto’s cruise and yet Hope returned as Kristian did. This time seems and is probably pretty final. Peter has done the gamut with Bo and deserves to live his life with his family doing whatever and I’m grateful he came back for the 50th! I’m grateful he didn’t poo-poo on flashbacks or Bo & Hope scenes. Thank you Peter for an amazing ride!… Read more »

My mom watched DOOL from day one. I grew up with the show but I didn’t become hooked myself until the day Bo Brady entered my life. I immediately fell for him and Bo and Hope as a couple While Friday’s episode was done beautifully, I was shocked by how quickly it happened and felt cheated by the weeks we wasted watching Bo being held prisoner. His time in Salem should have been with his loved ones. Seeing Peter back on screen and his amazing chemistry with all his co-stars will just make his departure hurt even more. I could… Read more »

Friday’s episode was how goodbye episodes are supposed to be done. The writing, producing, and acting was brilliant.

It was sad. It was wonderful. It was class! It honored the characters and the fans. Days has set the standard on how to take a legacy out. GH did not even come close to honoring the Luke and Laura story when Tony Geary left. So sad for what might have been. Writers, take a bow. Actors, take a bow. Directors, take a bow. I’m sure the actors, cast, writers, directors, whole team feel very good about their show.

I’ve always liked Bope, and I’m glad Bope fans got the kind of ending they wanted and deserved. But I wouldn’t be crediting Days for being sensitive to what fans want to see. WilSon fans certainly didn’t want to see what they got. Bo got to die in Hope’s arms, knowing he was loved. Will and Sonny weren’t even allowed a scene together, even in the morgue. Gee, I wonder why?

Stephen and Liz, I was comparing Bo&Hope to Luke&Laura. Both were THE iconic ’80s couple for each of their respective soaps. Both of them ended this year. But GH chose not to give their iconic couple any recognition or flashbacks. DAYS gave theirs a romantic sendoff. I’m sorry about what DAYS did to Will and Sonny, but they can’t compare to Bo&Hope. Or Luke&Laura.

The show was incredibly special to long-time fans. As much as it is hard to think that Bo and Hope will not be together forever, I have faith the writers will know the audience expects something great for Hope in the future. I keep reading comments on how everyone thinks Kristian will win a Daytime Emmy. Is there an actress that deserves it more? I thought Kristian was robbed the year Zack died and the fallout with Chelsea. Since I have been watching, the hardest deaths to accept was Wayne Northrup’s Roman (on the beach with Bo), Isabella (dancing with… Read more »

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Photo: JPI

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

Days Of Our Lives

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.
