Get out more hankies! If you have not watched Monday’s episode of Days of our Lives you are in for more tears when Patch (Stephen Nichols) and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) come upon the scene, and help poor Hope (Kristian Alfonso) cope with the sudden death of their beloved Bo Brady (Peter Reckell)

For decades, Stephen Nichols has played Peter Reckell’s on-screen best buddy, best friend, trusted confidante.  Patch and Bo two went to hell and back together as characters on the DAYS canvas.

Late this afternoon, Nichols took to his facebook page and posted a very heart-tugging message to Peter Reckell which simply said:  “Goodbye Pete. We have laughed, fought, rescued, loved and grown together. It has been a glorious journey. Glad we shared it! Love you, Bro   Stephen”

In addition, Peter Reckell responded to seeing the post via Twitter and sent out a tweet to Nichols simply saying: “Love you!”   What did you think about the sentiments shared by Stgephen Nichols and the enduring on-screeen friendship of Patch and Bo?

They also played longtime brothers-in-law, which filled their friendship with “Sweetness!”

What you said, 4ever. It also warms the heart when I see good grammar…..you wrote, the correct plural form: “brothers-in-law” and not, “brother-in-laws or law’s” which indicates possession. Happy Thanksgiving.

I ain’t got no good grammar all the time, CeeCee, but of course my opening words are a joke, which contain a “double negative.”

I do OK, but it somehow seems fitting to tell you I was an average student…C after C…C,C,C. You see what I mean, CeeCee? LOL!

I will try not to get too full, but I know some people think I’m already full of it. lol

Happy Thanksgiving, CeeCee!

I love Stephen Nichols! I first saw him as Stefan Cassadine on General Hospital and he instantly became my favorite. Now I am watching him as Patch and can’t get over how wonderful he is. What a touching tribute he wrote to Peter…..

Through the sadness of the loss of Bo it has been wonderful to see such great writing and acting for this 50th anniversary . I praise the writers for the intelligence and realism of the writing . I hadn’t seen Days of our lives deliver such quality in a very long time . I encourage these writers to keep up this good work , to make it even better . Nice to see Days of our Lives heading in the right direction again . Time for you all to tune back into the show .This is the soap to watch… Read more »

When we discuss daytime legends, Stephen Nichols has to be in the conversation. As I read this story it occurred to me again, how many actors on daytime can walk into THREE of the four soaps and be a major character instantly? I loved that he is back at Days BUT he could have easily been brought back to GH or Y&R and made a major impact! Much respect Stephen!

I love Patch as well, Timmm. I don’t know how long he will stay, but I will enjoy every moment. I saw true friendship there, between Peter and Steve. Those were true and raw emotions. I cannot say enough about Days. All of these thespians outdid themselves. So professional…so in character.
And, I agree, Steve does make an instant impact and connection with his audience.
Happy Thanksgiving, Timmm. God Bless.

“… how many actors on daytime can walk into THREE of the four soaps and be a major character ”

Nicely, said

“is it fair to say? I can’t even think of any other male actor who has even done two? unless it’s their evil twin, return from the dead, or doppelanger? ”

I usually associate this only happening to the women. Thank God for that!

so… this is a major coop to know Steven Nichols is in an arena all his own

It was sad seeing Patch say goodbye to his longtime friend. And now Steve has gone to tell Victor. Victor will be devastated.

As I watched Friday and Monday’s episodes, I thought that I was glad Steve isn’t dying.

More beautifully acted and written scenes. I think having Steve back is the hero that has been missing from the show. I also think Chad has the potential to be another one. I have not loved this show this much in years. Excellent work Mary Beth, Stephen and to the show’s MVP, Kristian.

I also thought Rob Scott Wilson’s (Ben) acting yesterday was amazing. After he found the phone and realized Abigail tried to text Chad, his intensity was amazing. His rage and ranting induced goosebumps.

Brother, Hope hasn’t had a real great time of it lately has she. First she’s married, then almost strangled to death, then put it in Hospital bed in her own gown (?) then she finds out her daughter is now an adult, then she tells Chase he can still live with them even though his father tried to kill her, then Bo comes back, then Bo explains he has a brain tumor, then he dies in her arms in Fake Leaf Park. Geez. If anyone has a Xanax, save one for Hope.

Male friendships on soaps are rare and the friendship between the character Bo and Steve on Days was of the best ones ever done. Considering neither of these two men have acted with each other in years, it was nice to see them just pick up where they left off without missing a beat. Not only did Bope fans get some closure, but so did these two characters, which I think SN was conveying in his tweet–

Patch and Steve are The most Iconic male partnerships beside Robert Scorpio and Luke Spencer. Two toughies with charm heart and soul. Its a shame Soaps don’t write duos (super couples of any sort) the way they once did.

I will always love the character of Bo Brady played beautifully by Peter Reckell. Love him since the day he began on Days. I was in high school. The friendship and bond built between Bo and Patch is really unmatched. Just as exciting in last month’s as it was in 80s. Stephen Nichols is a superb actor. It was perfect that he goes out to find Bo and bring him home. Days dragged the rescue and the longest trip home to Salem over three months was frustrating. Now, in last 2 weeks – we had farmworkers and interactions with Peter… Read more »

The fact that us fans have related so completely to Bo, Hope, Steve, Kayla etc is that they are so great actors! What a combo, kudos to Days writers!

Geez, just watched the “funeral” of Bo – if you could call it that! And why are the funerals in Salem always outside? The writing on this show is SO off its mark, will be surprised if it lasts much longer. Hope’s weirdness is becoming stale as well.
