Days of our Lives, Peter Reckell, (Bo) who was extremely close to the late Frances Reid (Alice) spoke with TV Guide Magazine about the start of the upcoming tribute episodes that brings family and friends together for Alice’s final days and passing.   Here are a few excerpts:

Reckell on how it was to play out the sad episodes: “We loved having the opportunity to say goodbye — both as actors and characters. It was wonderful to have all those great old friends come back to the show and it was much like catching up with people at a real funeral. “It’s great to see you but, boy, do the circumstances suck!” And it was funny because we just kept going between takes — looking through all these great old photo books, reminiscing about our storylines with Mrs. H, and telling stories about Frances some of which aren’t repeatable. [Laughs]. She was not a G-rated person! The emotion of it all just clobbered me over the head. I’d come out of scenes not able to speak because the bond we had with her was so tremendous. There was no acting necessary!”

Reckell on the pairing of  his then Rebel Biker, Bo, and Gran and her donuts! ” Bo and Mrs. H!  I loved our scenes together. It would be great if we mixed it up more on the show these days. I don’t see the kids on our show hardly at all anymore. And that’s a shame because, you’re right, the audience eats that up. But we do have Suzanne Rogers [Maggie] picking up the torch from Frances and working with the younger ones. It’s good to see her step up and become our matriarch. She’s the one with the history now.”

Head Writer Ron Carlivati on Bo & Hope Return: “This Is Old School Days of our Lives, and It’s Something That The Audience Has Waited a Very, Very Long Time to See”

Next week, begins the continuation of the shocking story arc that started last summer on Peacock’s limited streaming series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapter 2. 

In it, DAYS fans learned that Bo (Peter Reckell) has been kept in cryogenic cylinder for years, and was brought back to life by Stefano’s daughter, Megan Hathaway (Miranda Wilson).

Now, circle March 16th for Reckell’s first episode back as Bo and March 17th as Kristian Alfonso’s first episode back as Hope to the mothership and Days of our Lives.

Head writer, Ron Carlivati previewed the storyline in a new interview with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now.

Carlivati shared: “We pick up Hope where we left her off.  She had gone though this whole experience with Harris Michaels (Steve Burton), finding out that he was in league with Megan Hathaway, and we ended her on ‘Beyond Salem’ like, ‘I have to bring Megan Hathaway to justice.  I have to find her and make her pay.”‘

While Hope is on mission, she will also have Harris Michaels back in the mix, and as the head scribe shares, “Hope is on a collision course with Bo, and she’s unaware of it.”

As to what lies ahead for viewers, Ron revealed: “This is old-school Days of our Lives, and it’s something that the audience has waited a very, very long time to see.  You won’t want to miss it.”

Check out Peacock’s promo for the return of Bo and Hope below which teases that while most people get over their high school sweethearts, this one never did, alluding to Megan’s past relationship with Bo, which is the impetus for her revenge plot.
