Rafe returns to the loft looking for Sami, but finds Caroline instead. She gives him a piece of her mind but he’s distracted by the thought of where Sami might be. At the warehouse, Rafe2 accosts Sami. They argue and Sami blasts him for everything he did to her. When Sami makes a bolt for the door, he stops her and starts to strangle her. Feisty Sami doesn’t give up but the imposter is just about to kill her when Rafe shows up and pummels him. Once the imposter is restrained, Sami warns Rafe that his look-alike is never going to help them nail the DiMeras. Without him, they won’t get the proof they need to put them away. Rafe realizes they may have to formulate a new plan. Abigail catches Daniel and Jennifer kiss. She assures her mom that while it’s awkward, she’s okay with it. She mentions that Uncle Lucas called, and Daniel thinks Lucas must disapprove of him. He admits he’s not proud of how he and Chloe carried on behind Lucas’ back. Jennifer tells Daniel not to worry. She won’t let her little brother influence her; she can make up her own mind. Daniel is pleased to hear this and he invites her to go away for the weekend. Jennifer is touched and says there is nothing she’d like more.

Dario has admitted to having feelings for Melanie, but she tells him she can’t go there; she can’t get involved with another “bad boy.” Dario is put off by this. She tries to explain about Philip, how she can’t fall for someone like him again, someone who cuts corners. A rejected Dario tries to shrug it off. He then learns Gabi is in the hospital and rushes out. At the hospital, Will tends to Gabi, who had her appendix removed. Gabi is crushed that Rafe is nowhere to be seen, but is thankful when Dario arrives. Melanie is touched when she witnesses a sweet moment between Dario and his sister. Vivian and Quinn run into each other and it’s an awkward reunion – they are mother and son! Vivian abandoned Quinn as a child, and now she suspects he’s in town to seek revenge. Quinn swears that’s not the case but Vivian realizes she must find out all she can about her son and his motives. EJ wakes up in Taylor’s hotel room, having made love to her. He insists he won’t allow her to live in hiding. They’re going home, and he’s going to handle Nicole. Later, Taylor runs into Lexie and explains she’s ready to be with EJ. Meanwhile, EJ returns home and tells Nicole he was with her sister. She goes ballistic, and they have a huge confrontation. Abigail comes to pick up Chad for their date and overhears what she believes to be a physical fight between them. Against Chad’s better judgment, Abigail calls Bo. EJ tells Nicole they’ve reached a standoff and need a new agreement, but she disagrees. Bo arrives, and Nicole prepares to spill all about EJ’s imposter scheme.

Rafe nearly tells Bo about the imposter but in response to Sami’s pleas, he decides to keep his counsel. He and Sami examine Fay’s cameo and contemplate the (presumably bad) fate of the woman to whom it belonged. Meanwhile, Taylor looks at a photo of Fay wearing the cameo. Chloe is feeling hopeful for the first time in a long time and talks to Adrienne about the new guy she met. Meanwhile, Vivian and Quinn have words. Later, Quinn meets with a client and shows him Chloe’s picture. Quinn then takes Chloe out to lunch. He asks if she’s ready to return to performing. She thinks he’s talking about music, but he finally drops a bomb – he’s talking about sex! Meanwhile, Vivian vows to find out why Quinn’s really in town.

Brady is surprised to see Taylor back in town. She reveals she and EJ love one another. She explains that he plans on divorcing Nicole to be with her. Brady is not pleased. She implores Brady not to go to the police about EJ’s former drug business. She insists he’s a changed man. Alone, Brady decides EJ is going down. Nicole is about to confess to Bo about EJ kidnapping Rafe when EJ subtly reminds her of what she’ll lose if she does – Sydney and Johnny. Nicole decides to say nothing. After Bo leaves, a triumphant EJ claims he’s won. Later, a furious Nicole crosses with Taylor. Taylor says there’s nothing Nicole can say or do that will make her stop loving EJ. Nicole gets an idea. Chad tells Abigail she really shouldn’t have called Bo to the mansion. Abigail realizes Chad is more of a DiMera than she wanted to believe. Hope and Jennifer help Ciara and her friends work on a project for their Young Adventurers club. In private, Jennifer tells Hope she’s going to spend the night with Daniel. Hope gives her blessing. After failing at helping the girls with their arts and crafts project, Hope teaches them self-defense. Ciara inadvertently causes Jennifer to fall. Jennifer realizes she’s injured her back, but insists nothing will stop her night with Daniel. Carly calls in sick, determined to detox. Daniel pays her a visit, thinking she has the flu. They share a sweet moment, which Melanie witnesses. Carly is more drawn to Daniel than ever.

Quinn tells Chloe he wants her to work for him – as an escort! She naturally balks at the idea but he threatens to reveal she slept with him and then took his money. Chloe says he has no proof she did anything wrong. Then Quinn shows her video of them making love. Nicole tries to tell Taylor the truth about EJ, but she doesn’t want to hear it. EJ shows up in time to keep Nicole from attacking her sister. Nicole witnesses EJ and Taylor’s love for each other. Hurt and angry, she’s about to out EJ when he makes a thinly veiled threat. Nicole goes. Taylor asks EJ if there really is something else she should know about him. Meanwhile, Nicole slams into the DiMera mansion and calls out for Stefano, determined to get her way.  Quinn reveals to Chloe that he recorded her taking his money for sex. Chloe freaks out, especially when Victor shows up and taunts her about moving on to another man so quickly. Quinn defends Chloe. When Victor leaves, Chloe reiterates her disgust to Quinn, but he threatens to go public with the recording if she doesn’t comply and turn tricks for him. He gives her a card with the time and place to meet a client.

Rafe visits Gabi in the hospital and can’t help but show how much he cares about her. Gabi is upset with him at first, but when she learns she can’t get released in time for that night’s prom, she falls apart in his arms. Will enlists Melanie and Dario’s help for a mysterious plan. They secretly decorate Gabi’s hospital room in an attempt to bring the prom to her. Gabi is blown away by the surprise. Later, she and Will share a romantic dance. They assure each other they are not disappointed about not having an “after party” in a hotel room. Dario is cold to Melanie until he overhears her telling Rafe what a great brother Dario has been to Gabi. Later, Melanie convinces Dario to have a casual dinner with her.  Nicole turns to Stefano for help, urging him to keep EJ away from Taylor. He knows about her blackmail and so wonders why he should help her. Nicole argues that she accepts EJ for who he is; she won’t try to make him change like her sister would. Meanwhile, Taylor and EJ grow closer. He warns her that Nicole might say some disparaging things against him. Taylor knows her sister will do anything to discredit him and tells him not to worry. Later, EJ goes home and informs Stefano that he will not kill Rafe2 after all. Stefano says Nicole was right about Taylor. Rafe is confused when Alicia – the imposter’s one night stand – shows up at the loft. He does his best to get rid of her and not give himself away at the same time. After Alicia leaves, Taylor shows up to see Sami, who isn’t home. Rafe tries his best “Faux Rafe,” creeping her out in the process. Taylor is about to leave when she spots her mom’s cameo, and she demands to know why they have it! Rafe is stunned. Abigail is taken aback when Jennifer reveals her plans to go away on a romantic weekend with Daniel. Abigail reluctantly gets on board with this new development. Later, Abigail meets up with Chad and comes on strong. Chad questions her, and she realizes she was acting out at her mom. Meanwhile, Daniel picks up Jennifer and realizes she has major back pain. He’s about to cancel their plans but Jennifer’s back “pops” back in – now she’s set to go. Earlier, Daniel tells Carly he’s going away with Jennifer and it’s too much for her. She steals drugs and goes home, determined to forget.

‘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.

Photo: JPI

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.

Photo: JPI

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.

Photo: JPI

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.
