‘Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem’s’ Peter Reckell and Kristian Alfonso Deliver the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when beloved and iconic Days of our Lives’ couple, Bo and Hope, reunited in heaven on the Peacock streaming series Beyond Salem Chapter Two. The five-episode limited series brought back Peter Reckell in his role of Bo, Kristian Alfonso as Hope, and even Scott Shilstone as Zack, plus Andrew Masset as Larry Welch!

Decades later, bottom line: Reckell and Alfonso still create on-screen magic as the couple known as ‘Bope’.  In story, when Hope is shot, she lands in heaven where she meets up with the great love of her life, Bo.  While together, they come to realize their reunion is limited as Hope needs to return to the living which makes the whole thing even more hankie-inducing.  Sprinkle in their dance (choreographed by Dancing with the Stars pro, Alan Bersten) to Bo and Hope’s signature song, “Tonight I Celebrate My Love For You”, and longtime fans of the couple are eating it up.

Later, in heartbreaking scenes, Hope is reunited with her grown-up deceased son, Zack.  As with Bo, Hope must leave her son behind again, but Bo and Zack tell Hope they will all be together someday.

Individually, there were also some very strong performances from both Reckell and Alfonso.  Bo struggled to watch on the live feed what was happening to his ‘Fancy Face’ at the hands of Harris Michaels (Steve Burton) back on earth, and his devilish meeting with judge and juror, Larry Welch was a surprise.  Alfonso shared tender and confrontational scenes with her on-screen daughter, Victoria Konefal that were extremely poignant and well-played.

For all of these reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Peter and Kristian’s work, The Power Performance of the Week.

Additionally, major kudos go to the Beyond Salem writing team for hitting the right notes that brought out the best in Peter and Kristian … and how about that ending? Will Bo be completely resurrected from his cryogenic state?  From a tweet from Reckell over the weekend, it looks like there could be more Beyond Salem in his future.

Peter expressed:Thanks 2 everybody who joined us for Beyond Salem 2 ! We had so much fun preparing this for you and we’re happy you were able to come along for the ride! With any luck, this is just the beginning of an amazing adventure. I love reading all the comments, there is so much history.”

So, do you agree with our picks of Peter and Kristian as the ‘Power Performance of the Week’? What did you think of their scenes throughout ‘Beyond Salem”? Comment below.

It was so great seeing Bo and Hope back together again and when I watched the dance scene with their song I had a few tears because that performance was so AWESOME. I will always love Bo and Hope because they will always be our Sweethearts.

DAYS Brandon Barash On Stefan’s Resurrection: “You’ll See Some Revenge, Corporate Takeovers, Losing a Memory … Maybe Gaining of Memories”

Dr. Rolf is at it again on Days of our Lives! While Jake DiMera has met his maker, apparently his twin brother, Stefan O DiMera is coming back to life.  That sets the stage for Brandon Barash to reprise his original DAYS role.

In a brand new interview with his on-screen brother, Dan Feuerriegel (EJ) on the Days of our Lives You Tube Channel, Barash talks on what viewers can expect once Stefan is completely back in action, and how he feels about taking on the darker twin once again.

Brandon teased: “You’ll see some revenge, corporate takeovers, losing a memory … maybe gaining of memories.”  With Stefan back in the DiMera mix, look for the two brothers to not always see eye-to-eye. Barashs shared that they’ll be, “Butting heads for sure”.

Meanwhile, will Stefan and his true love, Gabi (Camila Banus) reunite once she knows he is alive? Barash weighs-in on that and more ‘burning’ questions.

You can check out the chat below.

Now, let us know, are you glad that Stefan O DiMera is back on the Salem canvas? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

BREAKING NEWS: Days of our Lives Ending Its Run on NBC, Moving to Peacock Starting in September

In a major move, Days of our Lives, the longest-running scripted series of all-time on NBC, is exiting the television network and will now be in its new home on the NBCUniversal streaming platform, Peacock.

The shift marks the end of DAYS’ nearly 57 year-run on broadcast television. Days of our Lives debuted on NBC back on November 8th, 1965.

Look for all-new episodes daily of the series to begin on Peacock starting on September 12th, along with the show’s library already available to stream for Peacock Premium subscribers.  According to a press release from Peacock, “The historic move to Peacock creates the ultimate destination for daytime fans to access the library, new episodes and Peacock Original Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem in one place.”

In its place, NBC will fill the daytime drama’s current timeslot with NBC News Now, an hour-long news show anchored by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Vicky Nguyen and Morgan Radford. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC affiliates will also have the option to add local news to the hour.

In a statement, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming chairman Mark Lazarus shares: “This programming shift benefits both Peacock and NBC and is reflective of our broader strategy to utilize our portfolio to maximize reach and strengthen engagement. With a large percentage of the Days of Our Lives audience already watching digitally, this move enables us to build the show’s loyal fanbase on streaming while simultaneously bolstering the network daytime offering with an urgent, live programming opportunity for partners and consumers.”

NBC’s decision means it leaves only three daytime soaps on American broadcast TV: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. 

DAYS has found recent streaming success with its limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapters 1 and 2, which introduced the viewing audience to the Peacock platform.

To watch Days of our Lives on Peacock, you will need a premium-tier paid subscription at $4.99 per month. The service offers an an ad-free experience at $9.99 per month.

We will have more on this developing story.

So, what do you think of NBC removing DAYS from its daytime line-up, while moving it to their owned-streaming platform, Peacock? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Brandan Barash Shares Reaction to Jake’s Death on Days of our Lives: “It Was Fun Getting To Know You”

This week on Days of our Lives, Jake (Brandon Barash) met his untimely demise, when he was shot by a mugger.  Thus, signaling what would seem to be the end of the line for the character.

However, on today’s episode of the NBC soap opera, Jake visited a grieving Ava (Tamara Braun), so perhaps there is more than a ‘ghost of a chance’ that Barash is sticking around.

As previewed exclusively last month during our virtual interview with DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati …the Salem scribe revealed there would be another death in Salem, following the murder of Abigail Deveraux DiMera (Marci Miller), and the character would be ‘dead-dead’.

However, speculation is running wild that with the return of Dr. Rolf, that perhaps Jake will be resurrected … or Barash will once again play Jake’s twin, Stefan O. DiMera!

On Instagram, Barash had some fun with Jake’s demise with comparison side-by-side photos – one of which features Barash as Jake covered in blood, and reading the Handbook for the Recently Deceased!

Barash captioned his pic: “How it started/how it’s going. #ripjake It was fun getting to know you. 🙏🥃”

So, what do you think about DAYS killing Jake? Do you think Brandon will be sticking around Salem? If so, as who? Comment below.
