Sami, Rafe and Will are shocked and overjoyed by Sydney’s return. Caroline and Roman hear the commotion and can’t believe it. EJ found Sydney! Rafe learns that EJ went behind his back. Rafe and Roman get a lead that confirms EJ’s story. EJ defies instructions and takes the child home where Sami hears her call him daddy. Sami is surprised Sydney remembers him, but dismisses it. Later, Rafe arrives, and chews them out for not taking Sydney to the hospital first. Through a slew of excuses, Rafe realizes that Sami knew about the latest ransom note. Melanie rejects Daniel, but he refuses to take no for an answer and the two finally come together. However, Melanie admits she hates Carly even more. Nathan attacks Carly, but is conflicted himself. Stephanie confides in Caroline, but remains convinced she has done the right thing in not giving Nathan Melanie’s letter. Philip wonders if Chloe is upset that she cannot be a mother especially now that Daniel is a father, but she dismisses this. Carly reaches out to Melanie, to no avail. Nathan finds an emotional Melanie, and the feelings between them are electric. Stefano and Kate arrive home to find Sydney alive and well. EJ won’t let Stefano near Sydney. After Rafe and Sami take Sydney to the hospital, EJ and Stefano fight and Kate tries to play peacemaker. She says EJ can’t keep Sydney away from Stefano as long as they all live under the same roof. This gives EJ an idea. Sámi confirms to Rafe that she knew about the latest ransom note and kept it from him. She expects Rafe to blow up, but he doesn’t, which is worse to her, because she can see how deeply she hurt him. He goes into FBI mode and insists they take Sydney to the hospital and find the kidnapper. Sami leaves with Rafe, but still can’t get him to open up. When EJ arrives later at the hospital, Sami admits she thinks she blew it with Rafe. EJ asks if he could spend the night with her. Rafe walks in and overhears. Melanie unloads emotionally on Nathan. At the same time, Stephanie confesses to Lexie that she’s done something maybe she shouldn’t have. Meanwhile, Melanie reacts to Nathan’s comfort, and says he doesn’t have to do it because he feels guilty about not reading her letter. Nathan asks her what she’s talking about. Melanie tries to tell him but he’s called away for a patient before she can. Melanie realizes Stephanie never gave the letter to Nathan. When Stephanie comes to visit her, Melanie rips into her. Melanie and Stephanie have it out. Melanie knows Stephanie never gave Nathan the letter. Stephanie tries to cover, but Melanie tells her to stop it. The girls argue and Stephanie tells Melanie that Nathan didn’t want to hear about her. He has moved on with Stephanie. She scolds that even if Melanie wanted to be with Nathan, how could she break Philip’s heart? Affected, Melanie is at a loss for words. Maggie meets with Nathan to tell him that she thinks her myasthenia gravis has returned, but she keeps quiet when she senses her grandson isn’t doing well. She questions and he admits it’s because of Melanie. Maggie calls him on this and guesses he still has feelings for her. Nathan admits it’s true. She said she sent him a letter and he can only guess it was to tell him how she felt. Part of him wishes he had stopped her wedding. Maggie tells Nathan that Melanie is married to Philip. What about Stephanie? Nathan agrees that it’s time to truly give up on Melanie, but he’s still privately conflicted. He goes to see Melanie, but finds her asleep. Stephanie calls Nathan, and both of them know they need to talk. Later, Maggie is at home and she falls. She fears the worst. EJ has asked Sami if he could spend the night. He wants to be there for his children and their mother. This rattles Sami and Rafe, after overhearing, is a bit bothered. He focuses on the aftermath of Sydney’s rescue. Lexie presents Sydney with a clean bill of health and EJ is questioned. Sami tells Abe about the video of Sydney and Rafe wants to view the video for a possible lead on the kidnappers. Will and Mia fold in to the group, also happy to see Sydney. They go home, and Sami thinks Rafe is going to stay, but he’s got work to do. He leaves her alone with EJ and her kids. Sami admits her relationship with Rafe worries her and EJ, playing the father role, places a blanket around Sami and Sydney. At the same time, Rafe uncovers phone numbers to EJ’s cell and he has the first step in finding the kidnappers. Mia is thinking about Chad when Will shows up and kisses her. He tells her about Sydney and they go to the hospital. Later, Will gives her a St. Christopher medal that will signify their exclusiveness. She accepts it, buts is still conflicted. Sami wakes up with her daughter in her arms, but there’s no sign of Rafe. He’s been working all night trying to track the kidnapper. EJ and Sami bond over the baby. Later, EJ visits Anna, who is packing up, and explains his decision to stay in town and break Sami’s heart. Arianna goes to see her brother and urges him to forgive Sami. Brady sees Sami and takes Rafe’s side. Later, Sami goes to Rafe’s office to make amends, but he is distracted as he gets a lead. Brady crosses with Chloe and asks her a huge favor. Chloe goes to see Nicole in prison and tells her Sydney is alive. We see Nicole’s relief, but she knows she has to move on. She’s carving out a place for herself in prison, and we see her hatred for those she has left behind, especially Sami and EJ. Nicole recalls seeing the kidnapper’s boots, but sadly she doesn’t think anyone will ever know who took the baby. Arianna visits Melanie and talks about her regret about turning down Brady’s marriage proposal. She’s hoping Brady will propose again, and indeed, Brady tells Daniel that is his plan. Brady is on his way to meet with Arianna while she crosses with EJ and expresses her sincere gratitude for what he did to bring Sydney home. Daniel comes across Melanie who is feeling blue. He is at a loss as to how to comfort her. He seeks out Maggie’s advice, and she gives him much needed encouragement. Daniel realizes Maggie is ill and convinces her to have a check-up. Later, Maggie learns her myasthenia gravis is back. Daniel urges her to tell Melanie. She does, and Melanie expresses her desire to be there for Maggie as Maggie has always been there for her. Sami insists Rafe talk to her about how he feels. Rafe admits he’s hurt, but the love they have for each other overcomes the problems in their relationship. Sami, however, is sure that her betrayal of trust will come back to haunt them. Rafe gets the address of a dwelling that fits the kidnapper’s profile. He tells Sami they will talk later and rushes out. Sami returns home and tells EJ that she damaged her relationship with Rafe by having kept the secret from him. EJ advises her to concern herself with her daughter and nothing else. He “believes” she and Rafe will work out just fine. Meanwhile, Anna can’t find her boots, and lies to EJ about missing her plane. When she finally finds them she realizes they don’t fit in her suitcase. Later, Rafe enters the cottage.

Daniel tells Victor that he is Melanie’s father. While he doesn’t want Victor badmouthing Carly, he admits he’s not her biggest fan either. He’s concentrating on his relationship with Melanie, and is having doubts that she’ll come to accept him. Victor urges Daniel to stick by his daughter. One of Victor’s greatest joys came from his late-in-life discovery of his grown children Isabella and Bo. Daniel is moved. Vivian taunts Carly. She’ll only be satisfied when Carly is behind bars, alone and away from everything she loves. Later, Victor informs Vivian that Daniel is Melanie’s father. Vivian says she finally got her revenge. Carly has lost everything. Later, Carly leaves a message for Bo. She’s going to plead guilty at the hearing. Chloe tells Nicole about her hysterical pregnancy, the whole story about Daniel being Melanie’s father, and her concern that Daniel’s focus will be on Carly. Chloe is proved correct when Daniel later asks about prison, and she realizes he’s concerned about Carly being sent there. EJ offers Arianna a job. Surprised, she promises to think about it. When EJ goes, Brady tortures Arianna in a fun way before finally proposing. This time, she says yes. Sami insists Rafe talk to her about how he feels. Rafe admits he’s hurt, but the love they have for each other overcomes the problems in their relationship. Sami, however, is sure that her betrayal of trust will come back to haunt them.

Days Of Our Lives

‘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.

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.
