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 right now . Far better than Young and the restless and the bold and the beautiful . You can give these two a bit of a miss .

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!

CeeCee

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–

Peter Reckell is so great as Bo I just loved him! Bo and Hope were one of the absolute best couples in daytime history!

Will stop watching days after today’s episode…I have watched this show with my fiancé mother, my mother as well..in fact the day they killed Bo was the same date my mother passed on a few years…This is a holiday episode…not…Hope this soap is cancelled in 2016.

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.

You mean Steve “Patch” and Bo.

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 and some of the key characters. I wish had not ended so abruptly. But left to me – Bo would have never left Salem USA.

Don’t want to see Bo’s stories to end. But many thanks to Peter Reckell for decades of heartfelt and quality performances. Godspeed to Peter in all he does. Condolences to all Long-time Days fans who will always miss “their” Bo.

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!

Jaime

Great actors! Days needs to keep our Patchman up front where he belongs!

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.

Days of our Lives Celebrates 54th Anniversary (Photos)

Last Friday, Days of our Lives celebrated yet another amazing milestone in their storied soap history. The long-running NBC daytime drama series turned 54- years young.

To ring in the anniversary, the cast, crew and behind the scenes creatives including head writer, Ron Carlivati and NBC executive, Bruce Evans were on-hand.

DAYS executive producer Ken Corday made a speech filled with history and ‘thank you’s’, and Bruce Evans reminded everyone of how important the characters and the show is, and how it has touched so many lives from generation to generation.

From speeches, to a cake-cutting ceremony, posing for pics, to a tasty green room filled with fun food, the cast patted each other on the back for a job well-done as the show is now breaking new ground with the time-jump that kicked off Friday and plays out more this week and beyond.

Check out some of the celebration in our photo gallery below.

Then, share your congrats to DAYS and what it has meant to you on their 54th anniversary via the comment section,

Days of our Lives Blockbuster Flash-Forward Promo: Where Are Your Favorites One-Year Later?

Every year at the annual NBC Day of Days event at Universal City, California’s CityWalk, fans in attendance are treated to the premiere of the extended and exciting promo of what’s to come in story in the weeks ahead.

But this year, the promo was even more exciting because it revealed pieces and teases of what’s happened in Salem and to your favorite characters within the one-year time jump that began on last Friday’s episode when Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) woke up out of her coma and learned from Jack (Matt Ashford) that she had been asleep for a year! And … thus begins a daytime first for a drama series.

In the DAYS November sweeps promo, viewers see that Brady (Eric Martsolf) and Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) have their baby and so does apparently, Eric (Greg Vaughan) and Sarah (Linsey Godfrey).  Then. Jack says to Abigail (Kate Mansi) that she is her number one reporter, while Victor (John Aniston) tells Ciara (Victoria Konefal) she is the future of the family.  Elsewhere, it looks like Kate (Lauren Koslow) is waiting tables?

Meanwhile, Sonny (Freddie Smith) says “I miss him, I miss him a lot.” Who is he referring to? Clyde (James Read) is back and looks to be in an adjoining cell with his son, Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson)!  Also in prison are the ladies, Hattie Adams (Deidre Hall) and none other than Eve (Kassie DePaiva)

Then, Gabi (Camila Banus) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are making out and apparently things have heated up between them, once again, and Princess Gina (Kristian Alfonso) is still looming.  Will she come between John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena (Deidre Hall), and will Jennifer remember that Gina pushed her of the balcony a year ago?

Watch the promo for the time-jump below.  Then, let us know what story you are looking forward to most, and finding out how it plays out via the comment section below.

Networks To Preempt Daytime Programming For Donald Trump Impeachment Hearing Coverage

Just as your favorite soaps are kicking into high gear for November sweeps next week, comes the news that due to the House public impeachment hearings on President Donald Trump, daytime programming will endure several pre-mptions starting with the first two on Wednesday November 13th and Friday, November 15th.

CBS was the first network to announce their plans for their extensive coverage, and according to the Washington Post all other networks have followed suit.  By this move by the networks it gives the hearing some extra weight and exposure to the American voters and viewing audience.

So far, leading network coverage for CBS will be reportedly anchored by Norah O’Donnell and for ABC George Stephanopoulos.

On Wednesday, the hearings begin at 10am EST, the second is scheduled for Friday beginning at 11am EST.

William Taylor, the U.S. diplomat in the Ukraine, is scheduled to testify Wednesday and on Friday Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, is scheduled to testify.

The networks are expecting big numbers for covering the hearings, as they have in the past for impeachment proceedings and hearings.

No word yet how the soaps plan for you to see the episodes that don’t air at their regularly scheduled times, or if it shifts your soap viewing schedule by several days.
