Will apologizes to Chad about his mom, Madeline, dying. Will feels responsible, but Chad lets Will off the hook. Chad feels like he needs to fill in some blanks, and Will offers to help him – starting with Kate. At the same time, Kate learns Madeline’s safe deposit box was empty upon her death. Stefano thinks they have nothing to worry about. Kate, now having the only copy of Chad’s real birth certificate, realizes she holds all the cards- – and Madeline’s secret. She is looking at the certificate when Lucas calls. She tells her son she was just thinking about him. Nathan moves in with Stephanie, but her joy is short lived when she realizes he is keeping a photo of Melanie. At the same time, Philip surprises Melanie with the test results of her latest nursing exam. He’s proud of her and gives her a necklace. Later at the Brady Pub, Melanie learns from Adrienne that Philip was at Daniel’s apartment the morning after Chloe’s accident. Philip explains it was for Chloe, but Melanie is slightly suspicious. Abe and Lexie take Theo to a therapy session. Theo brings up Aunt Hope’s treasure. Lexie, confused, tells Theo to show her what he means. Later, Abe and Lexie revisit the topic of opening their heart and home to someone else. Later, at the lake, Theo finds a wallet and tells Lexie that Aunt Hope’s treasure looks like this and she has a lot of treasure. At the hospital, Maggie sits with Victor. Caroline arrives, upset that Victor didn’t call her about Bo. Maggie urges Victor to make amends with her and he tries. At the same time, Justin tells Hope about Bo’s accident. She flies over to the hospital and is on the case, but Bo can’t remember anything. Carly states it’s because of the meds, but Hope vows to find who did this. Later, Hope tells Bo how much he means to her and she doesn’t know what she’d do if she lost him. Bo takes her hand and Carly witnesses the moment. Nicole goes over her diary with all the places she has hidden her incriminating evidence against EJ. Later, she is surprised and touched when Brady stops by, but worries when he picks up her diary. Seeing her shabby accommodations, Brady offers to help Nicole out with some money, but she insists her ship is coming in. Later, Nicole contacts EJ about their agreement. Rafe has a copy of Nicole’s diary; unfortunately, it is in code. Arianna visits him and they fight about her friendship with EJ. Arianna leaves upset, and later, Rafe thinks he may have cracked the code in Nicole’s diary. Carly tries to comfort Daniel, who is confused by Chloe’s erratic behavior.

Philip gives Chloe an idea to explain why she doesn’t want to get married right away. Chloe explains her reluctance to Daniel, and he does a 180, thinking all is good. Later, Carly tells Chloe she has set up a paternity test at another hospital, Saint Mary’s. At the same time, Daniel is consulting on a case and plans to take Melanie with him – also at Saint Mary’s. Kate is surprised that Chad wants to see her. Chad asks about his mother’s past, but Kate urges him to drop the subject and remember how much his mother loved him. Chad seems to let it go. Stefano bonds with Will, but remains cool to Chad. The secret as to why Kate is keeping the truth of Chad’s paternity deepens. Bo talks Carly into discharging him from the hospital, hoping that being at home will help him remember the circumstances of his attack. Meanwhile, Justin is suspicious of a strange conversation with Hope in which she doesn’t seem to recall that they kissed. Carly tries to hypnotize Bo and asks Hope to stay in a police capacity. Later, Bo is “under,” and Carly asks him what he remembers. Meanwhile, Justin confides in Adrienne that he thinks something is not right with Hope.

Nicole gets EJ to give her cash in exchange for her silence. She moves the blackmail materials she’s stashed, unaware Rafe is hot on her trail. Sami is hurt when Rafe gives her the cold shoulder. She has a tough day with Johnny, and EJ helps smooth things over. Later, EJ blurts that this won’t be a problem when they’re married. Maggie warns that Brady is being drawn back into Nicole’s web. Later, Brady realizes that something is up between Victor and Maggie. Maggie tells Victor in no uncertain terms that he needs to go home to his wife.  Brady is stunned when he crosses paths with Dr. Baker.  Carly prompts Bo under hypnosis to remember the night Hope almost killed him. Hope is positive they are about to finally get answers. Just when it looks like Hope might remember her alternate self; Caroline interrupts and reacts to the triangle. Hope returns home, where Carly later shows up and asks for help in getting Bo to take it easy. Hope is driven to find Bo’s would-be murderer. Vivian shows up and says look no further, it’s Carly. Bo runs into Abe and Theo at the police station. He learns from Theo that Ciara’s treasure was a collection of wallets and that she got them from her mommy. Brady chases after Baker, but he gets away. Brady calls the police, and Nicole freaks when she learns this. Brady is suspicious of Nicole’s nervousness, especially after she gets a call (he doesn’t realize it’s from Baker!). Nicole covers that it’s a problem at the studio and leaves. EJ broaches the subject of marriage to Sami. She’s drawn to him, but can’t handle giving him an answer. She goes to Caroline and tells her how torn she is between Rafe and EJ. Caroline surprises her by telling her to marry EJ. In the meantime, EJ tells Stefano he brought up marriage to Sami and speaks of his determination to make sure she never learns he was the one who kidnapped Sydney. After being shut down by Maggie, Victor returns home and starts drinking. Vivian calls him on it. He refuses to discuss Maggie with her and reminds Vivian of their marriage arrangement concerning Bo and Carly. Alone, Vivian wishes she could find a way to make Victor love her.

Theo tells Bo that Ciara’s treasure were wallets she got from her mom. Bo questions Ciara, who finally admits she took the wallets from Hope. Vivian, meanwhile, accuses Carly of trying to kill Bo, since she already killed Lawrence. Carly explains to Hope why she killed Lawrence. Her explanation subconsciously resonates and rattles Hope as it parallels what “Nighttime” Hope feels toward Bo. Hope turns in early, surprised to find her pill bottle is empty. She decides to deal with the matter the next day and takes a pill she finds at the bottom of her purse. She wakes up as “Nighttime” Hope. Thanks to Carly, she now knows what to do about Bo. Carly runs into Vivian and chews her out for accusing her of trying to harm Bo. Vivian is unrepentant. Vivian realized Carly is keeping yet more secrets from her and vows to find out what they are. Dr. Baker worries about Nicole and Hope, but decides it’s safe to leave town. Fay calls Nicole and thanks her for money she sent. Worried about Baker, Nicole cuts the call short. She asks EJ to loan her Marco. When Marco arrives, she tells him to pay Baker a visit.

Rafe learns that nearly all the locations in Nicole’s coded diary are empty. He finds one more location that makes him think whatever Nicole is hiding will be there. Meanwhile, Caroline tells Sami if she loves Rafe she needs to follow her heart. Sami bumps into Rafe and nearly tells him about EJ’s discussion of marriage. She stops herself when she sees how distracted he is by work, unaware he’s trying to find out the reason behind Nicole and EJ’s truce. Sami goes back to EJ and he offers her a sincere and romantic proposal of marriage. Later, Rafe shows up at Fay’s place of work.

‘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.

‘Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapter Two’: Did Megan’s Hunt for the Three Prisms Bring Back the ‘Love of Her Life’?

In the final episode of Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapter Two we were left with a chilly cliffhanger, and we will get to that in a moment.

However for starters, the fifth installment gave several members in the ensemble cast some heart-tugging and emotional moments including: Kristian Alfonso (Hope), Victoria Konefal (Ciara), Steve Burton (Harris), and Christopher Sean (Paul).

In story,  a doctor and nurse are talking about a cryogenic capsule with the DiMera Enterprises label on it.  The doctor shares that when Megan (Miranda Wilson) has all three prisms, they should be able to bring the patient back to life.  The nurse has concerns over the patients brain tumor in the capsule.  The doctor explains the prisms collectively will help treat ‘him’.  We were to believe, at first, this was Stefano? But, clearly it has to be Bo (Peter Reckell)!

Meanwhile, Megan is in Montreal, having revealed herself to Hope! She tells Harris to grab the prism out of Hope’s cleavage.  After he does what he is told, she then tells Harris to shoot Hope!  He pulls the gun on Hope.  Now, Harris is welling up with tears.  Does he love Hope Williams Brady, like, for real?  Next thing you know, he passes out and Megan takes off.

Harris, who has now been arrested, gets a visitor, and it’s none other than Hope.  She wants him to sign divorce papers, while he gets emotional.  He apologizes to Hope, saying Megan ordered him to kill her, but that he did not want to.  Hope is not buying it and furious that Harris kidnapped Steve (Stephen Nichols) and John (Drake Hogestyn) and John is MIA.  Harris says he thinks Megan did something to change him and that he wasn’t always like this.  Hope says she will speak to the ISA and Shane Donovan on his behalf and heads out.

At the gala in Hong Kong, Wendy (Victoria Grace) is held captive by a trance-like John and Steve. Li (Remington Hoffman) then gives John the prism.  Joey (Tanner Stine) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) manage to out maneuver Steve as Li holds the gun on him.  However, John has taken off.  Later, Marlena (Deidre Hall) injects a captured Steve to try to get him ready for some hypnosis to undo his brainwashing as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) looks on.

Now in Caracas, John shows up at Megan’s with the prism.  She adds the prism to the other two to make it perfect, and to enable her to help revive the cryogenic patient. Just then, Andrew (Colton Little) and Paul bust in with guns in tow.  Megan directs John to kill them. Next, comes a showdown between Paul and John as Paul tries to talk John into remembering him, and the father/son relationship they have.  It begins to work on John, but as he is starting to remember, Megan fills the room with gas and escapes with the three prisms wearing a gas mask.  Later, after Andrew and Paul wake up, and make sure each other is O.K., they check on John who is now back to his normal self.

On the docks, Hope says a final farewell to Ciara and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson).  Before they part ways, Hope hears, “Tonight I Celebrate My Love For You” playing from the boat.  It brings her to tears, and to flashbacks of her time dancing in heaven with Bo.

Elsewhere, Andrew comes to say goodbye to Paul before he heads back from San Francisco to D.C.  The two share a passionate kiss.

In heaven, Angela (Loretta Devine) has some unbelievable news for Bo! Because he gave his ‘second chance’ to Hope, he is going to get a ‘second, second chance’.  Bo does not know exactly what that means! But we do, right?

As Beyond Salem Chapter Two comes to its conclusion, Megan is with the doctor next to the cryogenic chamber frustrated that even with all three prisms they haven’t worked yet.  The doctors tells her the body inside has been in this state for years and that she needs to be patient.  It is then, Megan reveals that she has been patient for forty years and she wants to be reunited with the love of her life.  After everyone has left the room, the cryogenic chamber door opens.  We see what appears to be an alive Bo Brady! Did the prisms and Megan’s plan resurrect him … or will that be short-lived? Credits roll . .. and this edition of ‘Beyond Salem’ leaves us with a major heart-stopping cliffhanger!

So, what did you think of episode five of ‘Beyond Salem: Chapter Two’? Do you think the plan is for Peter Reckell to return as an alive Bo on the mothership, or in the next iteration of ‘Beyond Salem’ … or is it all a big red-herring? Share your theories in the comment section.

But first, cast your vote in our latest Michael Fairman TV poll and let us know what you thought of  ‘Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem 2″!

‘Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapter 2’: Hope Reunites with Bo and Zack In Heaven

Thursday’s episode of the Peacock streamer, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapter 2 was must-see for all Bope fans, and you definitely needed the hankies to get through it!

In touching and heartbreaking scenes and performances, Bo and Hope along with their son, Zack were all reunited in heaven, but it was to be short-lived. Along the way in this timeless love story and hovering between heaven and earth, major kudos goes to Peter Reckell (Bo) and Kristian Alfonso (Hope) for bringing all the feels, all the memories, and continuing to show us why they, as Bo and Hope, are an enduring part of soap opera history.  Kudos also to Scott Shilstone (Zack), who once again brought the emotion to every moment he shared with his on-screen parents.

In story, after Hope is shot by hit man Thomas Banks (Eileen Davidson), during her wedding to Harris Michaels (Steve Burton), Ciara (Victoria Konefal) and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) hover over Hope’s lifeless body. Megan Hathaway (Miranda Wilson) has appeared, and wants to make sure she gets the prism, and the joy of seeing her nemesis, Hope, dead.

Once Hope “dies” she arrives in heaven, where she is reunited with Bo.  An emotional Bo is so happy and overjoyed to see Hope, but tells her it’s not her time and she has to go back to the living.  At first, Hope doesn’t want to leave Bo.  Next, Bo consults with Angela (Loretta Devine), to see if he could give Hope the ‘second chance’ ticket that he received.  Meanwhile, Hope comes face to face with her son, Zack.  Now that he is all grown up, Hope is overcome.  She lost him as a little boy when he was struck by a car, thanks to Bo’s daughter, Chelsea Benson.

After Bo and Hope dance to their signature song, “Tonight I Celebrate My Love For You”, a montage is shown of iconic moments of the couple through DAYS’ history.  Then, it’s time for the final goodbyes.  In tearjerker moments, Bo and Hope say goodbye to each other for now, as do Hope and Zack. Bo and Zack look on as Hope goes returns to the living.

Photo: JPI

Once back on earth, Angela hits the rewind button for a different outcome, since as she had explained to Hope and Bo earlier, Hope won’t remember a thing that happened in heaven.  Now, as Thomas is about to shoot Hope, none other than Sister Mary Moira (Eileen Davidson) appears and stops him.  Looks like his sister had some common sense, only their struggle over the gun leads to Harris being shot.  But then, Harris fires a shot at Ciara.

Photo: JPI

Ben knocks the gun out of Harris’ hands, but it’s picked up by Megan who demands Ben let him go. A shocked Hope exclaims, “holy shit!” when she realizes Megan Hathaway is somehow alive!

Meanwhile at the gala in Hong Kong, a hypnotized and in-a-trance, Steve (Stephen Nichols) and John (Drake Hogestyn) – thanks to Megan – arrive on the scene and tie- up their wives, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Marlena (Deidre Hall), in a room. Next, Steve and John head out to the gala with guns ready and drawn to capture the prism that Li Shin (Remington Hoffman) just revealed to all the attendees.
