Melanie realizes Chloe is telling the truth; Carly helped cover up her affair. Melanie seeks out her mother and blasts her for lying once again. A devastated Carly urges her not to tell Daniel the truth, but Melanie says she’s not going to be a liar like her mother. Meanwhile, Chloe calls Philip and tells him Melanie knows she cheated. He covers in front of Daniel and rushes to Chloe, who emotionally explains all. She promises she’ll never reveal that he was the other man. Philip says he’ll convince Melanie not to tell Daniel.  Daniel threatens to un-invite Victor to his wedding if he won’t support his marriage to Chloe. Victor can’t help feeling that Chloe is no Rebecca. Daniel still respects his love for his late wife, but he professes his profound love for Chloe. Victor gives Daniel a wedding present that’s been in the Kiriakis family for generations and wishes him and Chloe many years of happiness.  After congratulating Daniel on his impending wedding to Chloe, Bo and Carly discuss how happy they are together. She can’t believe how much her life has changed from a year ago. Carly leaves and Abe meets up with Bo. Bo confides that Hope still won’t allow him to visit her in prison. They discuss how much better Ciara is adjusting. Abe then gets a call from their children’s school. A kid was bullying Ciara, and Theo got in trouble for defending her. Bo learns from Ciara that she was bullied because of her mom. Hope helps the new young inmate April through an appendicitis attack. She then learns that April has no family. When April goes into surgery, Hope is taken away to see a visitor. Lee, the trustee, is pleased to know Hope will be gone for a bit. Hope is stunned to learn her visitor is Bo.

Rafe learns from Ben that EJ’s health can now withstand the truth. Sami happily tells EJ that they’re not really married. EJ reacts, in “shock,” and Roman tells him he will now face charges for kidnapping Sydney. EJ is determined to prove that either Sami or Will shot him. Rafe takes Sami home and tells her he’s quit the FBI. Now she can tell him anything, and he won’t have a conflict of interest. Sami finally confesses the truth. She shot EJ. Melanie is unconvinced by Carly’s pleas to keep the truth about Chloe’s affair from Daniel. Philip seeks out Melanie and makes a similar case, which also falls on deaf ears. Meanwhile, Daniel shows up at his apartment, looking for Melanie. Nicole tries to cover her absence by saying that Chloe and Melanie had a fight. She claims Chloe innocently made an insensitive remark about Melanie, which Melanie overheard. After Daniel leaves, Philip shows up and breaks the news that he failed – Melanie is still determined to tell Daniel the truth. At the same time, Melanie and Daniel finally come face-to-face. Bo has come to see Hope in prison, and asks for her help in co-parenting a troubled Ciara. He talks over the bully situation with Hope, who demonstrates she’s still the loving mother she’s always been. Hope sends him home with advice for Ciara. Later, Bo meets back up with Carly, who doesn’t tell him about Melanie. Meanwhile, Hope is shocked to learn from Lee that April died in surgery.

Sami has finally told Rafe the truth – she shot EJ. At first, Rafe doesn’t believe her, but then she offers proof. He pledges his love and loyalty to her only to be called away to finish resigning from the FBI. Later, Sami tells Will that Rafe knows all. Arianna, who is searching for Rafe, overhears Sami admitting she shot EJ. While Chloe, Philip, Carly and Nicole all wonder if the wedding will happen, Melanie tells Daniel he cannot get married and he seems to understand. Daniel explains he heard what Chloe said about Melanie not being his “real” child. Melanie eventually realizes Chloe has covered up the truth with another lie. Daniel explains his love for Chloe to Melanie as she prepares to break his heart with the truth. Before she can, however, Daniel is called away. Melanie becomes conflicted, and after a run-in with a bitter Brady, she knows what she must do. In the park and moments away from the wedding, Chloe and Carly in a strange way bond as they prepare to face the music. Maggie and Victor arrive, and patiently wait. Chloe, seeing that Melanie has done nothing, pushes an upset Daniel to start the wedding. As the ceremony begins, Melanie arrives and stops the wedding, confronting Chloe in front of all. Brady and Nicole discuss Vivian’s entombment, and their new living situation. As they come together for a kiss, shocked Arianna witnesses it. Arianna accuses Nicole of changing Brady for the worse. Nicole claims she’s just jealous. Meanwhile, Vivian has contacted Gus through a receiver she placed in his bag. She pleads with him, but he refuses to help her. She’s crazy. Vivian continues to beg, and tells him what happened to her. Brady checks on her and wonders who she’s talking to. He nearly discovers all, but Vivian covers. Affected by Vivian’s words, Gus finally decides to help her.

Rafe has quit the FBI in order to protect Sami. Will is blown away by this. He is moved by the lengths Rafe would go for his mother. Rafe admits he’s not thrilled, but seeing that there is no proof Sami did anything and the fact that EJ is making a full recovery, he kind of thinks EJ got what he deserved. He tells them they must all make a pact – no one can ever know what Sami did. Sami tells Rafe she feels terrible about what she’s putting him through. Rafe says he’d die protecting her. EJ is being discharged from the hospital when he’s hit with a court order forbidding him from seeing his kids. Neither Stefano nor Lexie can believe Sami would act so soon. EJ realizes not only is he going to lose his children, but he’s also losing Sami. Stefano sets his head straight and vows to fight, and EJ finally comes around. He goes home and has some memories of Sami, but despite his feelings for her, he wants his kids back at any cost. Arianna is deeply upset after overhearing Sami and Will talk about how she shot EJ. She realizes she must tell EJ. She goes to the hospital, but learns he’s been discharged. Later, she goes to the DiMera mansion, ready to spill all. Stephanie worries the truth about the paternity switch will be revealed now that Melanie knows Chloe had an affair. Kayla tells Stephanie to relax. Maybe the results were changed, maybe it was a glitch. Either way, it’s out of her hands. Chloe and Melanie have a show down at the wedding. To Chloe, Philip, Nicole and Carly’s relief, Melanie decides not to spill al, but she puts Chloe on warning. Daniel asks what’s going on, but both women cover. Melanie refuses to talk to Carly. After Daniel and Chloe are married, they go home to pack for their honeymoon. Daniel admits he’s not thrilled with what went down between her and Melanie, which, unbeknownst to him, was a lie. Later, Melanie arrives and Daniel admits he was worried about her, and tells her he’ll have a talk with Chloe. Daniel and Chloe leave on their honeymoon. Alone with Philip, Melanie says sometimes you have to lie for love. Victor is still twigged by Nicole and Brady’s behavior. Maggie tells him maybe now is the time to step in, and Victor intends to do so.

Arianna is about to tell EJ that Sami shot him when Kate interrupts. Kate is wary of what Arianna is up to, afraid somehow either she or Will will be implicated. EJ chews out an employee over the phone, and Arianna is given pause due to his temper. She doesn’t want to endanger his health. When EJ gets dizzy, Arianna leaves to go meet Gabi, but assures him she’ll be back. After talking to Gabi about their brother, Arianna comes to a decision. Meanwhile, EJ and Kate have a chat about where her loyalties lie. Rafe tries to reassure Sami that she’s home free. Sami remains worried and expresses concern about both Arianna and Kate. She is grateful, however, for Rafe’s protection.   Melanie explains to Philip her rationale for keeping Chloe’s secret. Carly arrives and hears the rest of the explanation. Melanie can’t forgive Carly and they sadly part ways. Melanie is so grateful that Philip, unlike Carly, has no ulterior motives. Philip’s guilt becomes visible as he pulls Melanie into a kiss. Chloe and Daniel are on their honeymoon, but there’s a distance between them. Chloe fully owns her “mistake” about her comment about Melanie, and promises to do her best to make things right.

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.

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.
