Taylor walks in as Bo, Hope and Sami recreate the moment Rafe2 threw Fay down the stairs. She is stunned to hear “Rafe’s” admission that he killed her mother. Sami tries to cover, but Taylor says she heard him with her own two ears. Rafe tries to stop Kate from entering the DiMera mansion before she discovers the commotion going on inside. She gets a call from Quinn and leaves. Sami takes Taylor to the loft and urges her to trust her. Taylor thinks Sami is just trying to save her husband’s neck. She wants to tell Nicole but Sami talks her out of it. When Sami goes to check on the kids, however, Nicole shows up at the door. Rafe, Bo and Hope get the imposter out of the mansion and back to the hideout. While videotaping him, Bo and Hope get him to confess to Fay’s murder – and also implicate EJ and Stefano. However, the imposter knocks the camera off the stand and it goes crashing to the floor. When Kate meets up with Quinn, he refuses to help her get proof of Chloe’s prostitution; he tells her she must do that on her own. Later, Quinn comes upon Vivian and Gus discussing his various businesses. Quinn realizes his mother’s been checking up on him. He admits to Vivian he came to town because of her; he would rather have a viper mother than no mother at all. He offers to help her exact revenge on her enemies. A skeptical Vivian says she’ll think about it. Kate happens upon them and wonders about their connection.

Chloe’s first client, Rob, awakens and she’s relieved that he doesn’t remember being drugged. Thinking they had sex, Rob wants another round, but she manages to fend him off. She runs into Justin at the club and Rob assumes he’s Chloe’s next customer. Chloe manages to cover and promises Justin she’ll be on her best behavior so she can get Parker back. Kate runs into Chad and learns he’s decided to work for Stefano in the “gray area.” Abigail reveals to Adrienne that she’s seeing a DiMera. Adrienne cautions against it. Abigail defends Chad, saying he’s not like his family. Chad enters in time to hear this. He feels guilty when she says she knows he’d never get involved in anything underhanded.

At the clinic, EJ briefly regains consciousness with Daniel. Carly, Jennifer and Melanie are relieved to hear he doesn’t remember who attacked him. Daniel gets EJ to the hospital, where Lexie buys Daniel’s story that he found EJ and brought him in immediately. Meanwhile, Melanie seeks out Brady, who’s being evasive with Victor about having been in a fight. Melanie provides a cover for Brady, then, in private, urges him to set aside his vendetta against EJ. Jennifer takes Carly home after treating EJ. She helps her exhausted friend into bed and then finds white powder residue on a table. Jennifer studies it, recalling how out of sorts Carly has been all night. Bo, Hope and Rafe are crushed when they play back the videotape. They discover that while the imposter’s confession is still there, his indictment of the DiMeras has been erased. As they process this, the news comes that EJ was injured in an apparent mugging. All three sense an opportunity – with EJ injured and possibly off his game, they just might be able to bluff him into thinking they got the imposter’s entire confession. If EJ confirms what they already know, they’ll have him.

Despite promising Sami she’d keep quiet, Taylor sneaks out with Nicole and reveals that Rafe Hernandez murdered Fay. Since she believes that EJ brainwashed Rafe, Nicole realizes that he is indirectly responsible for her mother’s death. Nicole keeps this revelation from Taylor and rushes to the hospital where EJ is recovering from his attack. She’s ready to confront him with what she knows, unaware that if she does, she may ruin Bo’s chances of sandbagging EJ by catching him off-guard. Bo and Rafe are on a mission to get EJ’s confession but are waylaid at the hospital. Nicole is about to tell EJ that Rafe killed Fay when Bo interrupts. Bo ushers Nicole out of the room and begins to show EJ the imposter’s taped confession when his blood pressure plummets and his monitors sound. Meanwhile, Nicole confronts Stefano. Taylor panics when Rafe tracks her down at the pier. He questions her, and she lies that she’s told no one about him killing Fay. Hope relieves Rafe and takes over watching Taylor. Taylor is appalled that Hope is letting her mother’s murderer get away. Hope learns that Taylor and EJ are in a relationship. Desperate to get to EJ and frustrated at being detained, Taylor pushes Hope out of her way and knocks her unconscious.

Daniel evades Stefano and Lexie’s questions and successfully pulls off his cover story regarding finding EJ on the pier. Meanwhile, Jennifer confronts Carly about the powdery substance in her room. Carly lies that it’s aspirin. Jennifer remains slightly suspicious, but Daniel unwittingly offers corroboration for Carly’s story. Victor deduces that Brady beat up EJ and chastises Melanie for lying to him. Victor warns Brady that he’s started a war. Later, Melanie talks to Victor about his relationship with Maggie. Meanwhile, Maggie confides to Julie that she’s decided to give up on the idea of having a relationship with Victor. Melanie then comes to Maggie and says the fragile peace in Salem has been disturbed. She suggests Maggie take Victor out of town, away from the danger.

EJ is taken to surgery, preventing Bo from trying to trick him into admitting his link to Rafe2. Meanwhile, Taylor gets away from Hope and rushes to the hospital to see EJ. Adrienne and Justin find unconscious Hope on the pier and revive her. Hope calls Bo and tells him about Taylor and EJ’s relationship. Bo realizes the surgery will keep Taylor at bay for now. Later, Bo meets up with Hope at the Cheatin’ Heart, and they discuss how to best trap EJ.

At the hospital, Stefano impresses upon Chad how important family is and the need to stick together, especially now that EJ has been attacked. Alone with Kate, Stefano talks about how happy Chad makes him. Kate later sees Abigail comfort Chad. She remains convinced the young girl is an impediment to Stefano’s bond with his son.

EJ’s surgery turns out to be minor. Stefano vows to unconscious EJ he will find out who tried to kill him. EJ comes to and sees Taylor at the door. Stefano orders her out, but EJ wants her to stay. Stefano goes, and EJ sees something’s upsetting Taylor. She reveals that Rafe murdered Fay. A shocked and guilt-ridden EJ realizes the imposter is responsible. Nicole vents her grief to a vision of Fay. She vows to her mother she’ll get revenge for EJ’s part in her death. Gabi, Will, “T” and Kinsey prepare for graduation. Kinsey blabs to “T” that Gabi and Will haven’t had sex. Gabi tries to put the moves on Will, but he backs away. Caroline gives Gabi some advice and explains Will’s past with his parents may have something to do with his reluctance. Gabi decides to take it slow with Will. Abigail greets a hot young guy with a big hug, which Will and Gabi witness. After Gabi leaves, Abigail introduces Will to the guy – it’s her cousin, Sonny Kiriakis. He’s in town to visit his parents, Adrienne and Justin. Later, Sonny goes to see Adrienne and Justin, who are thrilled to see him. Sonny learns his mom and dad haven’t told great-uncle Victor or anyone else the truth about him.

Hope has an idea how to keep Taylor from talking to EJ. Unfortunately, she’s already at the hospital revealing to EJ that Rafe killed her mother. Weak EJ is so sorry and it looks like he might confess, but doesn’t. He says he’d do anything to break the guy’s neck. Bo and Hope arrive at the hospital and arrest Taylor for assaulting Hope. At the station, Taylor tells Bo she thinks Rafe is behind EJ’s attack. Bo finds this interesting. At the same time, Hope learns from Jennifer that Brady was responsible. Carly overhears and is mad at Jennifer for telling Hope since it endangers Melanie. Hope calls Bo and alerts him. Hope tries to reassure the two women that she will do what she can to protect all parties. Carly is called away and Hope notes Carly seemed on edge. Jennifer, on her own track, covers and says she’s under a lot of stress. Hope goes to Carly and reassures her that she will protect Melanie and everyone else involved.

At the Kiriakis Mansion, Nicole checks on Brady, and Victor flies off the handle. He says her presence could lead the DiMeras to Brady. Bo arrives and thinks Victor has a point. He arrests Nicole to get her out of the way and then blasts Brady for his actions. Brady wants to know if his uncle is going to arrest him. Bo says there might be a way around it, but all hell may break loose. Jennifer is reminded of the missing meds at the hospital. Her suspicion falls on Carly and she decides to investigate. She swipes the key to her friend’s room. Melanie comes clean to Maggie about Brady and her involvement in the cover-up. Maggie is reluctant to go away with Victor; however, she wants to help Melanie and will see what she can do. Meanwhile, Detective McCarthy questions Dario after someone reports having seeing him at the pier the night of the attack. Adrienne starts to cover for him, but he won’t let her. McCarthy decides to take Dario down to the station, just as Melanie arrives.

‘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)!

Photo: JPI

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.

Photo: JPI

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!

Photo: JPI

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.

The fifth and final installment of ‘Beyond Salem 2″ drops Friday.

Now let us know in the comment section, what did you think of the Bo, Hope and Zack scenes in heaven? The performances of Peter Reckell, Kristian Alfonso and Scott Shilstone? Share your thoughts below.
