He’ll be missed. I’m glad they’re keeping Stefano alive.

Oh man, the emotions with this one. Joseph and Stefano have been a big part of Days that it’s hard to believe that he’s gone for good. I’m glad to see a send off episode. I’ll have to watch it on the NBC website later.

Oh, my goodness. Seeing Mr. Mascolo will be so surreal…..the show was not shown, today, due to the blizzard.
I do hope it will be shown tomorrow. I know I will cry….miss him. RIP.

I had a snow day here in NY, and I was able to watch DOOL live. I’m so glad I did. The In Memoriam for Joe Mascolo at the end of the episode was beautiful. It’s hard for me to believe we’ll never see Stefano again except in flashbacks. It was an honor to watch him for all these years. I never got tired of seeing the Phoenix rise, and it’s fitting that Stefano escaped from jail yet again. We’ll miss you, Stefano DiMera, and Joe Mascolo.

You are lucky, Beth. I had no programming ( I am in Suffolk County, NY), only the snow coverage until 3PM.

The “Phoenix” will be missed, maybe not so fondly, but the role was played briantlly by Joe!

I watched the “tribute” episode this afternoon on the alternate COZI channel due to the blizzard here in NY. Am I a Grinch to say I was deeply disappointed? The memorial at the very end, with a great photo of Joe and Shakespearean quote was lovely, but I think that a retrospective of some of his greatest scenes, especially those with Thao and James Scott as well as Dierdra and Kristian, would have been something his many fans would have appreciated. It was obvious that the miniscule scenes of Stefano had been recorded much earlier, and he no lines. How… Read more »

I agree with you Boots! I, too was disappointed. They should have devoted the whole episode to Stefano – if he was unable to speak, they could have had flashbacks with EJ, Lexie and Kristen. But, we got what we got and Joe is gone, may he Rest In Peace. But! Stefano, the Phoenix will never die – not in the memories of his fans!!!

They did do a full episode last year with past Stefano scenes, when Stefano was first killed off, all his adversaries gathered at the Brady Pub, there was Roman, John, Marlena, Caroline, Victor, Kate and a very quiet Hope. I still don’t get how he came back to life this time, those death scenes wer pretty final.

I am hoping they will do something later, like Y&R did for Jeanne Cooper.

It seemed to me that it was merely old footage of him in a jail cell from some older episode edited in to make it seem these folks were confronting Stefano — don’t get wrong I am super glad they undid his death at Hope’s hand– thought that was the dumbest thing the previous writers ever did– so great– and I love the idea the character is somewhere out there– never to be seen again, but causing trouble in Salem until the show ends whenever that might be— I think Joe would have liked that.

Yes, super dumb to have Hope shoot/kill Stefano. And the scenes of it were ridiculous IMO.

Maybe Stefano and Sally Spectra are living it up somewhere. 🙂

I heard that Joe’s last filmed appearance, which was this, was taped back in August of last year.

It wasn’t an old film; it was an actual performance because of how Days tapes its shows. In this case, I’m glad that they tape months ahead. (only in this case)

Well, we saw Hope shoot him, we saw him go down, we saw Rafe assist Hope in putting his body in a building that was about to be imploded. So, although I have not yet watched today’s episode on the NBC app – will be interesting to see how the writers got around this one –

This is one of those moments where I’m glad that DAYS tapes ahead of time that Joseph was strong enough at that moment last year to make one last hurrah for the show and for the fans who thought that his last onscreen death was his last appearance ever.

As the song goes from the lady with a beard: “Rise like a phoenix”, Stefano DiMera.

It was both great seeing him and at the same time hard to watch. The fact that he didn’t speak lead me to feel he couldn’t talk because of his Alzheimer’s… but did the best he could while struggling with his memory because of the awful disease. It would have been nice if they would have shown clips from the past so you could hear his voice which I think would have softened the fact that he wasn’t speaking. Or they could have spliced in him speaking from his cell while not seeing his face so that it had the… Read more »

The show was not seen here on NBC yesterday due to the storm but they went and showed it on there sister station Cozi tv and I am glad they did.However I did see todays show what is up with Shane and Steve did they fake the whole thing and why. Perhaps just to free Hope I am really confused.I suppose if u missed Thursdays episode you can go the the Days site NBC.Com and you maybe able to find yesterday show there to watch .More snow to come .lol

That’s exactly what I did. We had snow coverage ALL day in Connecticut, so didn’t see it ! It was great to see him one last time. RIP Joe !!

The show is to be commended for bringing back Joe Mascolo one last time to free themselves from the terrible decision by the prior writing regime to have Hope “kill” Stefano. It is clear those scenes were taped the same day as the rest of the show, but they had to be sensitive to Mr. Mascolo’s medical condition, and I thought they were very considerate. Remember that back in March 2016 there was an entire clip show devoted to Stefano as the Bradys sat around the pub and remembered their encounters with Stefano. You can still download that one on… Read more »

Peter Reckell Reflects On His Time As DAYS Iconic Bo Brady, Life In New Zealand & Christmas Music Project

Last week, Days of our Lives  turned 55-years young, and the historic long-running NBC daytime drama series has been home to some of the most memorable stars and characters of the soap opera genre, perhaps none more so than anti-hero Bo Brady played by Peter Reckell.

Reckell who appeared on the show for several runs that lasted over four decades, premiered as Bo back in 1983.  He then stayed through 1987, came back from 1990 to 1992, again from 1995 to 2012, and back again in 2015 during DAYS 50th anniversary and to wrap his run as Bo, when the character was killed-off, after Reckell made it clear that he wanted to give the audience closure for the character.  He later made another return in 2016 to help the character of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) move on with her life.  Hard to believe for all of those heart-tugging performances, Peter was nominated only once for a Daytime Emmy.

Photo: JPI

In this candid, deeply personal and enlightening new interview for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube, Reckell opens up as to: what led to many of the decisions he made throughout his time as Bo, how he helped craft the role from the start, the accident that almost took his life, how he handled all the fame that came his way as part of the Bo and Hope supercouple pairing, and how two women in the cast; the late Frances Reid (Alice) and Peggy McCay (Caroline) made lasting impressions on him that he will carrying with him for the rest of his life.

Photo: JPI

What would Peter say if somehow DAYS wanted him back and Bo was actually alive and well?  Find out as Peter weighs-in and wishes his former show a happy anniversary  In addition, he even shares how he felt when Robert Kelker-Kelly took over the role of Bo when he decided to leave the show at one point, and his time playing Johnny on primetime’s Knots Landing.

Photo: JPI

Reckell has moved his family to New Zealand, and this conversation was conducted from his home.  Peter is married to singer/songwriter/producer Kelly Moneymaker and the couple have a daughter, Loden.   It was not wanting to miss the moments of his daughter’s life growing up that has been much of the impetus for some of Peter’s career choices.

With Christmastime approaching, Kelly and Peter are part of a brand new Christmas LP entitled Joy.  The album is now available for download on Spotify, Apple Music and major music streaming platforms.

In an exclusive during the interview, we give fans a sneak peek of Peter’s new music video for “Under the Mistletoe”, the song he sings that appears on Joy, which was written by his wife.  For more on the album project visit BlueAegis.com
