Sami and Rafe share their engagement news with Caroline. Their celebration is cut short when Bo arrives with urgent news. In private, Bo tells Sami and Rafe that EJ has been shot. Sami already knows this, so she feigns shock; she’s truly stunned, however, when Bo says that EJ is still alive. Bo asks about Sami’s whereabouts, and Rafe says she was with him the whole night. After Bo leaves, Rafe can see Sami is rattled, but he thinks it’s because she feels guilty about wishing EJ had died. Carly and Daniel operate on EJ. He makes it through surgery but remains unconscious and in critical condition. Bo questions Stefano and Kate. Kate suspects Sami was responsible for shooting EJ, but keeps this to herself. She fears her phone call to Sami led to the shooting and fears what Stefano will do if he finds out. Nicole shows up at the hospital, and a livid Stefano points the finger at her. Nicole is able to provide an alibi. Vivian eavesdrops as Brady confronts Victor about his feelings for Maggie. Brady warns Victor not to hurt her. Later, Vivian listens in as Victor calls Maggie and expresses concern for her safety now that the DiMera feud might be back on. Victor thinks it’s best that Maggie is leaving on her trip. Once he’s off the phone, Vivian tells Victor she’s changed her mind – she’s not going to Tahiti. She wants to stick around for Isabella’s memorial. Nathan congratulates Chloe on her pregnancy. She’s offended when he asks if Daniel is the father and tersely assures him that he is. Elsewhere, Stephanie convinces Ian to help her determine who switched the paternity test. Meanwhile, Melanie tells Philip that she’s going to throw Chloe a baby shower.

Rafe and Sami head to the hospital to check on EJ. They arrive in time to hear Carly tell Stefano that EJ is steadily improving. Stefano blows up at the sight of Sami and accuses her of shooting his son. Bo gets Stefano to back down and Rafe insists Sami was with him the whole night. Stefano hopes EJ will awaken soon and tell everyone who tried to murder him. Sami grows nervous. Kate warns Sami that they need to talk. Stefano notes that Sami is already engaged to Rafe and calls her a whore. EJ takes a turn for the worse. Lexie discovers EJ left Sami in charge of his medical decisions. EJ’s life is now in Sami’s hands. Stefano is outraged. At the Cheatin’ Heart, Melanie tells Chloe she’s going to throw her a baby shower. Chloe is touched. After a shopping trip, Melanie and Chloe meet up with Carly, who offers to help with the shower. Vivian overhears and tries to snag an invitation, but Melanie blows her off and leaves. Vivian notes Carly and Chloe’s newfound friendship and questions them about it. Meanwhile, Melanie tells Maggie about her encounter with Vivian. Maggie thinks it’s her fault.Stephanie overhears that Philip left Chloe’s birthday party and disappeared for some time. She realizes this would be about the time the paternity test was switched. She tries to question him about it, but he angrily tells her to mind her own business. Later, Stephanie works with Ian to learn if Philip changed the test results.

Stefano pleads with a comatose EJ to pull through. Meanwhile, Sami seeks Daniel’s advice about knowing when to pull the plug on EJ. Lexie confirms to everyone that her brother’s brain activity is diminishing. Alone, Sami sits with EJ and contemplates what to do. Suddenly, EJ opens his eyes, and Sami freaks out. Is he waking up? Vivian hints to Carly that Chloe hasn’t told her new friend everything that happened. After Vivian leaves, Chloe confesses to Carly that she tried to kill her. Philip tells Vivian to stay away from Melanie. Vivian wants Philip to see that she’s an asset to the family. She mentions the project for Isabella but he is cruel to her. Philip asks Victor why he’s staying with Vivian. Later, Vivian inspects the tricked-out sarcophagus with Gus. Maggie explains to Melanie that Vivian is jealous of her friendship with Victor. Melanie tries to convince Maggie to stay in town, and then realizes she’s leaving because of her feelings for Victor. Maggie hotly denies it. Later, Daniel is pleased when Melanie tells him she’s throwing the shower for Chloe. Ian uses his computer smarts to figure out that Philip could not have changed the paternity test. Stephanie now believes it might have been Chloe. Nathan walks in on Stephanie and Ian, and wonders what they’re up to.

Lexie tells everyone that EJ’s condition remains the same. In private, Kate asks Sami what she did after Kate told her EJ was planning to kidnap the children. Sami lies that she did nothing. They agree to keep Kate’s phone call a secret. Abe informs Lexie and Stefano of the type of gun that was used to shoot EJ. Stefano privately realizes it was a gun that was kept at the house. He rushes home and discovers the gun is missing! Stefano tells Kate about the missing weapon and points a finger at Sami. Will learns that EJ has been shot. He goes to the hospital and tells Sami that he knows what she did. Sami is stunned after Will states that he saw her leaving the DiMera mansion that night. Sami tries to deny it, but finally admits that she was there. Will tries to get her to admit she shot EJ, but Rafe interrupts. Earlier, Rafe tells EJ to wake up and face the consequences of what he’s done. Arianna comes upon Rafe and asks what he’s doing. They argue over EJ.  Maggie decides to stay in town and help Melanie plan Chloe’s baby shower. Maggie later observes Victor’s softer side as he bonds with Ciara. Her feelings for him resurface, and she decides she must leave for her trip immediately. Melanie once again confronts Maggie about her feelings for Victor. Meanwhile, Victor learns from Daniel that Maggie is staying in town for a while. In the mausoleum, Vivian forces Gus to get into the sarcophagus to make sure all the monitors and audio feeds work. After being set free, Gus tells his Madame that she must not go through with her plans. They argue as Carly comes upon them. Carly threatens Vivian and tells her to stay away.  Chloe and Carly put the past behind them. Elsewhere, Nathan asks Stephanie for the truth about why Ian is hanging around all the time. He points out that Ian has a crush on Stephanie. She is relieved Nathan doesn’t know what she’s up to. Stephanie admits Ian has feelings for her but she doesn’t have any for him. Later, Stephanie plans with Ian how to prove that Chloe changed the paternity tests. She then shows up unexpectedly at Chloe’s door…

‘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.

‘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.

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.

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.
