DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Bo Dies In Major Tearjerker Episode!

Courtesy/NBC

Courtesy/NBC

How many boxes of kleenex or hankies did you go through watching Friday’s episode of NBC’s Days of our Lives?  If you were like us … plenty!

In a exceptionally well-done episode of DAYS, the writers and producers did not veer away from their “A” story at all.  All scenes and roads related back to the primary tale of Bo Brady (Peter Reckell), and the end of his life, and his enduring and iconic relationship with his “Fancy Face” Hope (Kristian Alfonso)!  Through the use of flashback clips telling the love story of Bo and Hope and classic memorable moments, DAYS delivered closure to long time fans of this supercouple.  However, most viewers did not think Bo’s return back to Salem would end so soon!

In a heartbreaking story filled with beautiful, emotional, and touching performances by Peter Reckell (Bo) and Kristian Alfonso (Hope), and the always stellar work of Mary Beth Evans (Kayla), Stephen Nichols (Patch), and Peggy McCay(Caroline), Bo’s life came full circle.

First, Bo decides he is going to break the news to Hope that he is dying of an inoperable brain tumor.  This is after the surprise party for him at the Brady Pub, where Ciara (Vivian Jovanni) wanted her mother and father to get re-married  and Bo said he needed a minute and leaves.  Next, Bo asks Hope to meet him in the park in their special place.   When they meet up, Bo brings a mini oak tree to be planted, and the two reminisce through a classic time capsule (vintage clips) looking back through Bo and Hope’s relationship spanning decades on DAYS.   Finally, when Bo tells Hope the truth of his condition, she is devastated.  He doesn’t know how long he has to live, and as the episode continues Bo is clearly getting worse.

Elsewhere, Patch and Kayla are trying to come to grips with Bo’s crisis.  Patch thinks Bo will continue to fight this as long as he can.  Kayla lets him know his MRI was so bad, she has no idea how Bo is even walking around.  After much back and forth about their own complex relationship, overcome with the sadness she is feeling about her brother, Kayla lets her self lean on Patch. 

And as for Caroline, in one of the more heart-tugging scenes, she relates to Ciara how Bo saved her life, and what a son he has been to her.   She details to her granddaughter, how Bo convinced her get treatment for what was then thought to be Alzheimer’s Disease.  How on earth is Caroline going to cope when she finds out her premonition/vision about Bo dying in the park came true?

On Friday, one of soaps most successful and popular love stories came to an end, and the show honored that with making sure that Bo and Hope played by Peter and Kristian were together on-screen and reunited as Bo dies in Hope’s arms.

What did you think of the episode?  Were you needing the hankies?  What did you think of the performances and seeing all the vintage clips again?  Are you sad that Bo had died?  Share your thoughts on the pivotal moment in DAYS history in the comment section below!

I cried and cried because I wanted them to be back together and everybody be one happy, loving family. All the soap spoilers I read of them killing Bo off I hoped was for the ratings. I hate the way the writers wrote him off so soon too. And Rafe and Hope? He’s a cutie but no Bo. I’ve watched this soap since I was 15 so I’ve watched for 47 years and the flashbacks? I remembered them all. What’s wrong with happy endings?

I couldn’t agree more. Bo was cheated. A character of 32 yrs and they do all that in 24 hrs without him saying goodbye to his mother and children but they go on and on with other ridiculous storylines. Who cared about Serena and Xander and the darn elephant…they could have brought Bo back, and surrounded him with love during the holidays. There’s up enough depressive things goin on in this world, we don’t need soaps to bring us down further. So many fans are upset, and I think I the interview Bo gave he said he was surprised they… Read more »

In one interview Oeter said he was surprised they killed Bo off and he talked about cost savings…he said he really had fun coming back and playing in the sandbox and was surprised it was so quick… Where did you read Peter wanted to be killed? He as better off not coming back so it would give fans hope that he might return someday….very sad and he deserved much better than the writers gave him. And the bicentennial?… When is that going to Happen? It couldn’t be the death violence and destruction they opgave the fans with lots of extras… Read more »

As much as I have loved the recent writing and performances on the show, this feels like a total cheat! Why did the writers waste SO much time on showing Bo being held prisoner and being tortured, only to have him die two minutes after he got back to town? They could have had Bo and Hope reunite months ago, and slowly come to grips with his death, and done a really epic love story in an uplifting humane way!! Instead, we got to see Bo being violently tortured, Hope being strangled repeatedly, Aiden dying, and for what? Bo didn’t… Read more »

I was HOPE-ing Hope and Bo would marry one last time in a hospital room,,,and you are right-too much time wasted having him a prisoner ect.,…we didnt need to see that…it couldve been explained offf camera…i knew for a long time there would be a Rafe and Hope pairing…Rope,…Hafe…hopefullly not Rape…lets keep it Rafe and Hope…Aiden and Hope began romantically and ended disasterously when they turned him evil just to make it acceptable to fans to write him out…im going to wait and see before i make final judgement on the pairing!

The writers, in their defence, didn’t have a lot of time. Peter Reckell agreed to return to DOOL for only a few weeks. I was hoping that the writers would have Bo leave Salem again because it was all too much and then after a couple of months recast the role. It wouldn’t be Peter Reckell but there are other actors out there who could do just as good a job. As for Rafe, I like him a lot. There is a rumour that Kristin Aflonso (Hope) has ASKED the producers to put her and Rafe together. Kristin may have… Read more »

This Hope and Rafe thing really gets to me. I did not like the scene where Bo saw Hope and Rafe together. That was too much for me and you know what Bo was thinking. We did not want Bo to die of a broken heart. Thank goodness we got to have a scene with Bo and Hope finally together and Hope coming to her senses. Rafe is a strong character and why the writers are making him turn into a wimp with “puppy love” eyes for Hope does not wash with me. Are we to watch Hope get all… Read more »

Because these are the same writers who thought a serial killer was a great idea. And lingering closeups of the life being strangled out of Will Horton. And the murders of young women, etc. I’m with you — more romance, less brutality. Isn’t there enough violence in the world?

Well, now I feel stupid for saying I loved it. I understand what y’all are complaining about though–it was rather rushed. Keep in mind I am fair weather Days fan and also keep in mind that I am long term disgruntled GH viewer who is so still disappointed with the great Fluke/Luke exit strategy. If Luke and Laura had one tenth of the emotional scenes replete with their history (courtesy of flashbacks)which Hope and Bo had, we L&L fans would have been over the moon. Honestly, we aren’t that hard to please–we’re cheap dates despite what they say. We would… Read more »

Harry, I totally agree. By the time Luke left, it was like LEAVE ALREADY. Sad to say, but Luke never worked without Laura. I am not denying that there was chemistry with him and Tracy….there was. Ironically, the time I liked and enjoyed Luke the MOST was the time when Geary hated playing him most, during the softer gentler Luke era of Claire Labine. She managed to retain just enough of his edge, but also blend a loving husband, father, and provider in the picture. The last decade of Luke was merely an exercise in Geary’s vanity, where he was… Read more »

Totally agree…the writers to me, are terrible. no deserved so much more…there was no bicentennial celebration either…it was all about depressing storylines…they didn’t show anything that held this soap together for so many years. Alice and Tom and for goodness sake, Doug, who is 90 in real,life, ran “Doug’s Place”…. His love story with Julie was amazing…..and Jack and Jen and Bo and hope and Caroline and Shawn, Kayka and Patch and on and in….where did these writers come from?

Oh my God—someone saw and said the same exact thing I feel. Too much time was wasted when Bo was being held by those goons. If they had to have him die, he should have been allowed some time with everybody in Salem so that everybody who mattered to Bo would have had that one last special moment with him. Yes, the episode was very good and hit the target as far as how I felt after we saw Bo take his last breath but at the same time, I kept thinking that there has to be more before Bo… Read more »

Totally agree with you James. They should have given Bo more time with family and friends and with Hope. Have Bo and Hope remarry, have them spend one last Christmas together. If they had spent less time having him in captivity, they could have given Bo more time with family. Having him home for 24 hours and then dying was ridiculous and a waste of Bo’s comeback. But I did love all the flashbacks and the episode itself was done beautifully. I cried like a baby….there will never be another iconic couple like Bo and Hope.

Rob
Guest

I had hoped he was going to be around for a while longer but that being said, I’m glad that they took that sour taste out of my mouth with Bo abandoning Hope. The character of Bo would not abandon his family. I saw a year ago that Peter was not happy with what happend to Bo and wanted give the fans a real ending to Bo and hope. it was what they deserved.

Mary
Guest
Mary

I agree. I couldn’t believe that Bo would just disappear into the wood work like that with no word to his family. If Bo and Hope had a falling out before he left I could see Bo not communicating with her. But not communicating with his children? Bo Brady would never have agreed to that. He would have found a way to send messages to Shawn, Ciara and Chelsea. Can you just imagine what those three children were going through?

I am torn, part of me hates that yet another iconic character for the show has died– but it was so well done that it is hard to fault it. It sorta reminded me of when Lexi died in Abe’s arms out in their garden. And the snow falling down just after his passing was a nice touch. I don’t get teary eye over death scenes on soaps anymore, always taking them with a grain of salt, but this one felt so final, like this was it, no coming back this time, so I did shed a few tears.

I have to agree with MarySF on several points. The balance of the story was off. Hope just married Aiden and he tried to kill her. Her missing ex-husband shows up just in time to save her and kill Aiden. The next day, Bo’s dizzy spells are worse and he goes to the hospital. Lucky for him, his sister is the chief of staff and can expedite the work up. He’s got a terminal brain tumor and wants to tell his family in his own way. Later that same day, everyone comes together for a surprise welcome home party for… Read more »

This is how it’s done! If we HAVE to have an end to Bo and Hope, show us some flashbacks, give us a montage, make us CARE! Peter Reckell’s and Kristin Alfonso’s performances were outstanding, you can’t tell me that wasn’t Peter and Kristin saying goodbye, as well as Bo and Hope! I can’t help but compare DAYS’ handling of “goodbye to a Supercouple” with GH’s goodbye to Luke and Laura. DAYS gave us everything we could want, in spades! GH was pitiful. Just pitiful!

I am not a Days watcher but have been more than cognizant of Bo and Hope as a supercouple throughout the years. I guess you could call me a fair weather fan, I tuned in yesterday and thought they did a brilliantly beautiful and poignant job of underscoring the enduring romantic love of this star crossed couple. While it’s so sad that PR cannot stay on as Bo, yesterday’s show was basically a love letter to faithful Days’ fans. The flashbacks and the stories paid fidelity to their history and gave Bo a graceful adieu. See, GH and Tony Geary?… Read more »

I still can’t believe that we will never have Bo and Hope ever again. That is really odd to me.

I am still in a little shock. I know Peter Reckell was on for a limited time, but I had no idea “Bo Brady” would actually die nor so soon. The November 20 episode is a keepsake to anyone who recorded it. What makes this so final is we know Peter left the last time to move to Oregon with his wife and family. Peter Reckell returning these few weeks was a gift. Now he is free of the “Bo Brady” character and can go back to Oregon. I just could not believe the last 30 seconds of Friday’s episode.… Read more »

The difference between Bo’s heroic death and Will being alone and terrified death shows everything about what makes these writers think and who they think their audience is. The whole show is a dark and depressing mess, but a middle aged man with a brain tumor can fight off generic terrorists to be reunited with his – weak and faithless wife who was taken in by a con man and then willed like cattle to Rafe – but athletic gay man in his twenties cannot fight back and is thrown away like trash, and we are all supposed to forget… Read more »

I’m going to go out on a limb and say Hope will be sitting in the first row of Bo’s funeral, and she won’t be walking out on her daughter because she is so grief stricken. That’s a story reserved for “the gays” – and we know what these writers think of them. I get that Reckell was only back for a short time, but I didn’t need to see him tortured and Hope’s character maligned to prop him. I wasn’t a huge Hope and Aiden fan, but I know what I saw and it was an insult to my… Read more »

The manipulation of the audience while Bo was in a “prison” waiting to get back to Hope was unforgivable. If it was the writers intent to bring Bo back to close out the love story they should not have wasted so much time. So in a process of a few weeks we had to deal with the plot of Aiden to kill Hope and then he dies. Then Bo “rescues” Hope from Aiden’s evil clutches only to die too. If I was a straight man I would stay FAR away from Hope. She is complete destruction. Can she please fool… Read more »

I’m not an Daniel fan, although I was a fan of making fun of how everyone broke from their lives to exclaim how wonderful Daniel was, but Shawn Christian and Daniel had a fanbase and was a central part of the show for the last few years. It’s bad storytelling to just have him run over by a car by Eric or whatever is going to happen. It would be nice for them to respect his fans, and I don’t like or miss Daniel at all. It just shows that the new writers are interested in their own pets –… Read more »

I enjoyed Bo’s farewell. I thought there was strong acting and I enjoyed the flashbacks. I will never understand why an actor who I won’t name would mandate against flashbacks in his farewell episodes. However, what ruined it for me was the comment from Jennifer on Thursday’s show stating that Abigail left town “last night.” This means that in less than 24 hours of Salem time, Hope enjoyed her wedding night, was almost murdered, Bo killed Aiden, Hope became severely depressed and became herself again, Bo fainted, Bo was tested at the hospital and diagnosed, he then came terms with… Read more »

I’m glad the writers had a chance to fix the end to the Bope romance, even though it was pretty slapped together. Meanwhile, we all saw the malice with which the new writers treated Will and Sonny. No flashbacks, no reunion, no respect. The whole thing just sours me more on this dark, grim and hateful show. I loved Bo and Hope as a kid, but I was left cold this week. And I hear more death and misery is coming….except for Rafe, who will end up ruling all with his magic…mediocrity. Also, I wonder if PR and KA don’t… Read more »

P.S. Please don’t throw tomatoes at me, but I always have liked Bo and Carly together. Hope always put on her childish act to Bo pushing him away (like Sami does too with EJ and Rafe) and Bo had to get back on his motorcycle and leave until Hope finally says “Bo Bo Bo”, and he had to come back.
But Carly was always there for Bo I thought when they were in love. Bo loved Carly too. That was another emotional scene on Days, when Carly left Bo on the boat ( then played by Robert Kelker-Kelly).

Unbelievably sad. Here’s the clincher. I actually liked Aiden and Hope after finally getting used to Bo leaving. When he came back, my thoughts changed as Aiden did and Bo trying to get back. When I found out he was dying, I was disappointed that the writers would do that. Hope and Bo together again with a grown up Ciera only to be written out. Makes no sense unless it was Peter R.’s terms. He told them he would come back for a bit and that was it. If it was the writers decision – bad one. I think now… Read more »

It was a beautiful episode, featuring on six characters, with the main focus on Bo, as it should be. The dialogue, the flashbacks, the memories were all perfect. The acting was truly exceptional. The pacing of the story has bothered me, too, but it doesn’t take away from how truly well-done Friday’s show was. I understand why Bo needed a more permanent exit now than he’d gotten the last time Peter Reckell left the show. I do think that killing off half of a beloved supercouple is always risky, and doing it at the holidays is always tough. I’ve lived… Read more »

It was good to close that story arc, given the actor didn’t want to continue playing that role. The pacing of the “Bo returns” storyline was frustrating and way too “torture chamber/escape and return” heavy. Then throw what they would spread over 6 months into 6 episodes, combined with Hope’s wedding and almost-murder, etc… And NuCiara’s speech about real wedding ceremonies that don’t mean anything, but a fake one does… I would excuse that type of speech if given by the much younger actress that played her a few weeks back… Nice to see they fixed the flashback machine that… Read more »

Upon contemplation the only explanation I can think of this time line being so fast is they wanted to get all these things done during November sweeps which is basically only two weeks in Nov. It is those two weeks the networks will based their ad prices for the upcoming television period– all the big stories are wasted if they don’t happen during sweeps because a bump in the ratings in Dec doesn’t really help the network with ad rates, so this is the only thing that might explain why so much happened all at once.

The shows were well crafted and supremely well acted by actors who decades of experience together showed. For me though it was ruined by all of the wasted time while Bo languished in captivity. That could have all been conveyed in a few scenes. PR, SN, KBE and KA were all awesome but I don’t feel satisfied with this ending. The should have crafted a story of Bo and Hope reconnecting before his death and there was plenty of time to do that. The whole, I have a massive brain tumor but I’m talking and walking and communicating just fine… Read more »

Meh. Cheap, low rent rip off of Lexie and Isabella ‘s death. The only thing original about it was the hatchet job on Hope – who apparently spent a couple of years being totally taken in by a con man and needed big, strong men like Bo and Steve to set her straight and toss her to the next appropriate man who meets with their approval. And apparently Hope got over her feelings, which I assume were real even if it Aiden was retconned to be false, so she needn’t grieve or come to terms with that. After all, she… Read more »

Agreed Timmm. Pretty certain it was Peter’s choice to leave but at least he never had a problem with his Supercouple status like Geary did. Still a fan of Geary’s work but I appreciate PR allowing Bo & Hope’s ending to wrap up his stay. Best work to date from Peter too!

I watched the show on Friday and what did I miss. I did not get a clear feeling died in Hopes arms, or is it just assumed, Help..can someone please tell me what I apparently missed. Thank you.

Read the article about Bo dying on Friday and I’m quite bitter. (I didn’t see the episode because I don’t watch anymore.) 1. “In a exceptionally well-done episode of DAYS, the writers and producers did not veer away from their “A” story at all. All scenes and roads related back to the primary tale of Bo Brady (Peter Reckell), and the end of his life, and his enduring and iconic relationship with his “Fancy Face” Hope (Kristian Alfonso)!” Really? The day Will died, it was all about Ben & Abigail and other characters. And Will was waiting for their cable… Read more »

I have to agree. Will and Sonny were groundbreaking and Will was a legacy character. The Will/ Sonny love story was what brought me back to Days. Very disappointing ending for them. Very disappointed that Hope had to lose both her loves. They could have ended Bo/Hope without making Aiden the villain and killing him off. I was actually a Haiden fan and Daniel Cosgrove shouldn’t have been let go. I cannot see Rafe & Hope together at all. No chemistry. I am trying to find a reason to continue watching with so many favs being killed off.

I don’t think Wilson were a supercouple in the sense they didn’t get to have 30 years together like Bo and Hope did. And that’s the point. Will should have NEVER been killed in the first place. Sonny and Will should have been given the chance — they had all the potential to be an enduring presence on the show. If they wanted to shelf the gay couple for a bit they could have them leave town together or had an open ended death, like they did when KA left the show for a bit. For a while Bo moved… Read more »

No kidding. It’s not a gay vs. straight thing, it’s all about history and who put this show on the map. There is no comparison of the two couples. None whatsoever. Having gotten that off my chest, I am very disappointed with the way it was all handled. I agree too much time was spent with Bo in captivity, and all this happening in less than 24 hours is absolutely ridiculous. Why couldn’t a few days pass so Hope can deal with her tragedy before slamming her with another? And I’m sorry, you don’t kill off Bo Brady. You just… Read more »

The episode was excellently done. Was it Peter Reckell’s idea to have Bo die ? No other actor could have done justice to the role. It was great having him return but did the writers have to make Bo history? She may only be a character but I feel so bad for Hope. Maybe this will all just be a dream from being attacked

Peter only wanted to do it for 13 weeks and said it would be final. They wanted to give the fans closure.

Thank you. I was not aware that Peter signed a short term contract. I will miss the character of Bo but respect that Peter did what he had to do. He gave life to Bo as a character & with him being gone, the character could never be the same. Thank you Bo and thank you Peter. Much happiness in your future endeavors. And while speaking of character’s leaving DOOL . . . as evil as Stefano is, I will miss Joe Mascolo. I wish you better health in the days ahead & will miss you.

it may not have been peter reckell’s idea for bo to die but evidently he was on board with the idea other wise he would not have agreed to come back – remember he said he only came back to give closure to the character of bo brady…………………..

I have been watching Days for 50 years. I was so sad to see Bo die. I fault the previous writers because that wrote such a pathetic explanation for Bo leaving. I just can’t understand why they didn’t recast Bo. I love Peter Reckell and it was evident he was unhappy with the direction of the show and left. So recast the part. Eventually the audience will accept the new actor if TPTB do their homework and cast the right person. Yes, Peter Reckell played Bo and was wonderful, but it was the character that I loved. So now one… Read more »

I am very disappointed that Bo has died., however, Bo set the stage for Hope’s next love when he talked to Rafe. I think they will be good together, but he isn’t Bo. i wish the story line would have been more about his struggle to overcome the odds. I am confused by all of the turmoil in the story. I don’t like Ben at all and I hope that he leaves the show and Abby and Chad reconnect. I believe the baby is his anyway. I have watched this show for more than 50 years. I guess I’m confused… Read more »

I think I started watching Days regularly during one of the previous resets, where Sarah Brown joined, Jack, Carrie, and Austin returned, etc. So I’m not a longtime viewer. BUT I have to say this episode was the best-written and put together episode of this soap I have EVER seen, and I liked that it only featured six characters. NuCiara is still trying to win me over (and she really hasn’t yet, this girl needs to work on her speech I think), but the involvement of Kayla/Steve and Caroline was pitch perfect, and I like the parallel of another Salem… Read more »

The whole idea of Bo coming back for such a short time Sucks. Horrible writing. What a waste of my time watching this horrible Soap series. Can’t you write something more happy for the Holidays. Why bring him back to tear everyone down. Not sure Days is going to be successful soap anymore with these writers 🙁

I think what made me cry the most was the previous day when Bo met with Rafe and gave Rafe his blessing to be with Hope. Very good scene between those two actors. I agree with the majority here who feel it would have been nicer to see less prisoner footage and more footage of Bo in Salem with his family and friends while he and everyone deals with his dying. But I guess I understand the writers wanting more of Bo’s time being spent doing heroic things instead of Bo being terminally ill for months. I don’t see how… Read more »

Some people can’t be satisfied. I’m sure it’s challenging to coordinate all of the required elements that must all work in lockstep for a show that appears every weekday. I can’t help but think we’d still have some of our other soaps on TV if people would have just been more understanding and more measured and respectful with their posts over the years. Oh how I’m beginning to wish social media and comment strings would just go away. I’m tired of everyone’s taking issue or offense with every freaking thing. Not everything is about us gays, and like I’ve said… Read more »

Enough with the negativity? The show turned dark, hateful and depressing to celebrate its big anniversary. The writers sent a blatantly hateful message with Will’s death and his funeral that gays were trash and their families false. That is negative, and it inspired negativity. If you deny it was political, tell me one other supercouple where the spouse sat in the second row at their funeral in the history of the show. Moreover, when it came to Bo and Hope – there was very little of what made Bo and Hope special in his death. They were always a team,… Read more »

I agree with Annie. No shouldn’t have never died. They should have moved away to another town or something like Sammie did. I was so upset. The writer really sucked on this episode. Please don’t let Abigail die and I hope Ben gets caught. He is extremely crazy.

Such a sad episode,very well played out was really hoping that Bo’s return would make a wonderful storyline where Bo and Hope would rekindle their relationship and their family would be whole again and they lived happily ever after,too good to be true. So hoping that this is just a bad dream,very disappointed that Bo’s return was so short lived(pardon the pun).Would love to have watched Bo and Hope grow old together,I shed many tears:(

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
