Peter Reckell On A Possible Return To DAYS To His Fans: "You Deserve Better Than What They Have Done To Bo!"

One of the most popular and beloved performers in soaps of all-time, former Days of our Lives superstar and icon, Peter Reckell (Bo Brady) was up on his Twitter account Tuesday evening addressing questions and comments from his many followers and legions of fans who have asked what he has been up to of late.

They also asked, if Peter will ever return to Days of our Lives to finish out Bo’s story, since currently long time viewers are upset and disgruntled on how the character is being perceived and written-off the canvas in Reckell’s absence, with Bo not coming back to Salem to be with Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and little Ciara (Lauren Boles)!

Reckell sent out this series of tweets on the matter to his fans: “Going back to Days, I don’t think that will ever happen as a long term commitment.  Going back to close out Bo’s story in a respectful way???  I would do that for you.  You deserve better then what they have done to Bo.  You have been very faithful and dedicated for years, decades!  Not sure what kind of story line could happen, I haven’t watched the show. You would have better ideas. Time to contact the show.”

So will DAYS finally try to bring Peter back to give some sort of conclusion to Bo and Hope’s story that makes sense? Would you like to see Peter return even if its for a short visit to Salem, as it seems he might be up for it?  How would you write Bo’s exit storyline if Reckell were to return for a short time to wrap up Bo’s story? What do you think of Reckell’s tweets?  Comment below!

Why exactly did he leave in the first place anyway? I was never quite sure and thought it was like AliSweeney just wanting a break.

He wanted to spend more time with his family and I think displeasure in diminished screen time. He said like when he first came on Days, the show was having story with younger actors.

I would write your role that you had a case that took you out of town because you had to go undercover. Now you have came back to Salem to prove that Aiden killed his wife and he told his son that she was the one who killed herself because she couldn’t go on. so he wouldn’t go to prison and wouldn’t get in trouble. But when you came back to Salem you found out the man that you have edvents on is with your facyface.So you have to save her and Cera from this coniving man.So you go sweep… Read more »

That sounds about right because he didn’t seemed pleased in the article by his tone. I had no idea the show was feeling as if the character had been written and no more could be done. Age does not make a character less interesting..people want to see how characters progress through the years. Otherwise why not name it The Young and Those Old People??

I would like the producers to bring Bo back to either stay or end the relationship he has with Hope, so they can move forward with her role without her cheating on Bo.. He is a great actor and I really hated to see him leave. Please bring him back to give us ALL closure.

Since Bo and Hope have been together since they were teenagers, I think something more fitting should happen. Even if you let him die, it would be better than him just deserting his family. I don’t think Bo would ever do this because he was too devoted to Hope and his family. I think, as viewers, we could accept this better. I don’t think Hope would ever cheat on Bo as long as he is alive. So please let us all have some closure!!!!!!

The dilemma Peter Reckell has experienced is ocurring more and more to veteran cast members on most daytime SOAPs. The networks,writers and producers are only focussed on storylines that attract younger fans. Heres the problem with this mentality and the problem with current SOAPS in general. They forget that new fans (who end up being loyal fans – not the throw away fans that follow one stotyline until they get bored then disappear like the ratings) are attracted to good storylines that involve multi-layers and complex twists and turns that include the entire clan – not just the youngest members!… Read more »

I’ve watched DOOL literally since it began and I was a kid (Mom watched). I’m sad to see Corday think he has to create “fresh, young” characters by the droves lately, and write off or send off the still viable older characters who made and have kept the show on the air all these years like, Bo, Hope, John, Marlena, Maggie, Victor (yes I know Aniston is retiring but his sarcastic wit was awesome), rather he stayed than “Stefano” tired of the Phoenix after all these years. Roman, Abe, even Grandma Brady as the new Matriach since Alice’s demise. Bo… Read more »

Amen to both Elena V and Aylee for telling it like it is!!!! My sentiments exactly!!! I too have been watching from the very beginning, as did my mother, grandmother, and my three sisters. We were just kids at the time, and Mom and Grandma are gone now, but my sisters and I don’t miss a day (thanks to DVR’s, because we do have busy lives). Of course we love to follow the story lines of all the young characters, but let’s not forsake our older generation. It was wonderful to bring Marlena and John back, they were sorely missed.… Read more »

You mention Luke and Laura as the blame for the DAYS casting off veteran actors onto the sidelines??? Take a good look at GH. You will see why they’re so successful : perfect balance of all stages of life – with an EMPHASIS on the 40+. The families are growing up and staying in Port Charles!! Why can’t Days do that? No imagination. No idea who their fan base is. They will find out once EJami’s finished. Fans want to grow WITH the characters and they are fiercely loyal to them until the bitter end. Stop bringing more characters (bodies)… Read more »

Bring back Patch for Kala let them reunite Kala deserves that much from ya’ll writers.Let Bo and Patch come back into town together because the cases the both of them have been working undercover have finally found the edvents to put Aiden and Clade away for a long long time and Kala and Patch leave when Bo and Fancyface leave.

I agree that the way DOOL has written Bo’s absence has been a real let-down, and it makes it even harder than it would normally be to see Hope with another man, even though the story of Hope and Aiden is moving slowly and IMO respectfully so far. I’m sorry that PR feels this way about DOOL and would only come back for a short time, but I’d like to hope (no pun intended) that things will change. So as much as I’d like to see PR on the show again, if all that he’s willing to do, and DOOL… Read more »

Completely agree, i’d rather no Bo than a token return for the sake of tidy storytelling. I think everyone agree’s Bo’s exit storyline was weak, but writing him back in for a short stint to fix his exit storyline feels like it could be worse. The only legit way for him to come back would be in an extended arc as GenHosp did with the Robin character – but we’d need a minimum 6 months of airtime which it doesnt sound like he’d be up for.

SZima
Guest
SZima

I’m a newer viewer of DOOL, so I only saw Bo briefly before he left. I’m not sure how long-time viewers would feel about a re-cast, so maybe it would be better for the character to die on his “mission” and Hope could then move on with someone else. TPTB are obviously pushing her towards Aiden, but how can anything ever come of that? The Hope/Bo fans would be up in arms if she cheated on him. She could just divorce him, I guess, and the character could return in the future.

tigres1

Aiden is dull, give this character some life. Bo was the reckless one that Hope fell in love with. Aiden is boring and they should give him a better storyline, so if PR doesn’t come back, at least give Hope and Aiden some excitement. I fast forward when it comes to Aiden and Hope, just plain boring. Get Aiden out of that suit and mess his hair up a little, give him that little bit of a “bad boy” that Hope was always attracted to with Bo

Peter R. left Days because he refused to take another pay cut.

Emma
Guest
Emma

That is not true. He already had taken two pay cuts, as did the other actors. He was unhappy with the non-storylines for Bo, and even after he left, the show contacted him to talk of a return. And again, they just had no story. I believe Peter felt Bo & Hope did not deserve to be relegated to filler scenes (as we see Hope doing now). It truly is difficult to understand why the show has not dealt with Bo’s absence in a better way, or recasted. With all the writers they have, someone COULD/SHOULD have come up with… Read more »

I agree, don’t kill Bo, get him back and jealous, get something going, Sami and E.J. are leaving, not into all this young stuff, DOOL is bringing back the older actors, what’s up with that and they won’t pay PR for what he’s worth? Forget John and Marlena, that story ended a long time ago, those two need to leave. Kristen is back AGAIN!!!!!!!!, please I’m ready to stop watching DOOL, bad writers

Days has been ruining their relationship with the Vets. I turned it on a few days ago, all these young kids were on, so many recast. In my area its not even on NBC, the CW picked it up, & I live in a huge city on the West Coast. Days keeps ruining characters that I grew up watching & can remeber my Grandma watching. I don’t want Bo to come back, because they will give him an absurd storyline. Wheres a great story for Lucas, Roman, their to busy turning Jen into a mess.

I dislike Jens storyline…first Anne, then Teressa and now Liam causes her problems and they are bringing in a fourth to do the same…ridiculous….the actor shouldve played Frankie Brady, Jens old boyfriend, and Jen, Frankie and Danial written in a good old fashion love triangle…or at least Liam shouldve been part of Jordans mysterious past…Jordans story is going nowhere imo and she, Rafe, and Ben can all leave Salem and i wouldnt miss them…was hoping Jordan and Ben were Eves children when she shows up but not so sure now. Cant wait for Eve and the return of Kristen!

I think PR could be wanting to go back full time and only acting as if he’s open to a short stint. He don’t care about a storyline wrap up. He’s putting feelers out there because he has no other work.

The only proper storyline that would be respectful to the long time fans of Days of Our Lives would be to kill off Bo. There is no way Bo would be off with Carly without seeing his daughter, that just makes zero sense and having him MIA on a mission is also ridiculous. If Peter does not want to come back as a permanent, that’s his decision and he is entitled to live his life but IMO the only real storyline could be that Bo dies. If he chooses to come back later on, that can always happen. The only… Read more »

Whilst I respect all the fans of the show, I’d like to see closure on Bo and Hope. They’ve been a super couple since the 80s and whilst I know Bo/Billie and Bo/Carly fans would like a little something too and I respect all fanbases, Bo and Hope were “the” couple. Peter himself said that Hope is Bo’s soulmate and I think he knows his character better than anyone so for me maybe a letter that Bo has been killed and then Hope has a dream where Bo tells her she can move on.

I think Sally’s idea is a good one. If Peter wants to come back a little longer, they can have Hope have a nervous breakdown after Bo’s death. She is put into a mental hospital where she doesn’t speak or react to anybody. Marlana tries to treat her. Then little-by-little, Bo comes to visit her (in her mind). Hope is the only one to see and hear him, which causes her to finally speak. Marlena eventually gets through to her and Hope tells “Bo” good-bye. (perhaps Aiden is there for her, too.) That would be a real tear-jerker that we… Read more »

As much as I enjoy Bo, I think I read somewhere that Kristian Alfonso has never really played a storyline without Bo in it somehow. I’m all for letting Hope find her feet without Bo and get to know that side of Hope. THEN get a recast Bo if PR’s not that keen in a couple of years – but all for solo Hope and whatever she’s going to face on her own.

Lucia Vickers

To say replace his character is just plain stupid! He is the only bo we know and love! It is peters decision on leaving and who can blame him?! they gave them no story line and no other choice. As for hope, yes she does need something to happen that allows her to move on. Whatever they decide that is, it just cannot be a different person playing bo. period

I think they have been writing the story in this way hoping that PR would return and are trying to avoid a recast. I agree that it is not a particularly good way to handle the character but maybe they feel their options are limited. They don’t want to kill Bo off and they don’t want to recast yet. Perhaps after reading PR’s comments they may feel that since he isn’t willing to do a long term return to the show they have the freedom to recast Bo. And since they are so far ahead a new Bo would not… Read more »

Ugh. I still think that putting this behind the scenes stuff out there and playing the victim is unprofessional as an actor. There’s not one actor on daytime who can claim they’ve never disliked something they had to do. It’s just part of the business. As I see it, the writers are in an impossible situation with Bo. You don’t want to kill off a legacy character, Robert Kelker Kelly doesn’t seem to be interested in reprising the role and Kristian Alfonso isn’t leaving any time soon. Having Bo off camera may not be the best story but seems to… Read more »

Often I am int he minority as I put story first. If there needs — and I think there is this need — to bring some closure to Bo and Hope (or keep them together), then recasting is an option. I would oprefer to see Peter Reckell in the role he made so vibrant but sometimes it cannot be.

B&B was able to recast Ridge with success just when it became difficult to continue story without the character. DAYS may have to consider this is “powers” and Peter Reckell cannot come to terms.

Emma

The writers do seem bent on destroying the character, having the fans dislike the character intently. Thus, they can have him be involved off screen with another woman, or die, or be undercover forever; they can have Hope decide she will no longer be the dutiful faithful, ever-waiting wife, and divorce him. If they killed Bo, then there would be all the mourning, the memorial services, etc. And Hope would remain at a standstill. Thus, Bo’s reputation has to be ruined (this is my opinion on what the writers are doing), everyone is angry, mad, disgusted, etc. and he decides… Read more »

With all due respect to Mr. Reckell, he chose to leave. IMO he asked that Bo not be killed to leave the door open for him to return should the circumstances which informed his decision to leave change.

I do wish DOOL would kill off Bo or say he filed for divorce. Just settle the Bo issue. Having Hope in sl limbo is not good.

Good luck to Peter.

If nothing else have someone find out that Bo and Billie or Carly have been together where ever he is then Hope can be angry and hate him and move on. If Peter did come back in the future it could be a case of mistaken identity or a hostage situation to explain away his being gone.

I totally believe Peter Reckell should come back albeit a brief stay as the way he left before was totally messed up.

Even if Hope started a relationship with Aiden that would be okay as Bo bedded Carly on her when she took Ciara and left.

If you do an interview with him, Michael, can you please ask him why he’s bringing this up now? It was his decision to leave, it was his decision to leave the door open for his character to return, his request that Bo not be killed of or recast so why is he now saying the fans deserve a better exit? What were the writers supposed to do? Peter had every opportunity to ask for a proper Bo send-off. He didn’t appear unhappy with his departure when it first aired or think it was lame back then.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS Wally Kurth Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Mark our words! Next year, Days of our Lives Wally Kurth (Justin Kiriakis) will once again be nominated for a Daytime Emmy for this week’s emotional and deeply-touching work on key episodes of the NBC daytime drama series.

As viewers saw, this was to be the happy nuptials of Justin and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), who found love again after losing the previous loves of their lives.  They were dear friends to begin with, who through a set of horrific circumstances, found comfort with one another which eventually turned to love.

Problem was; Justin overheard Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) before the ceremony discussing Steve’s (Stephen Nichols) feelings for Kayla and that he wants her back; something Kayla is unaware of.  So what will he do?  The noble thing and tell her the truth, or keep it to himself and marry her anyway?

As the Intel of what he learned weighed heavier and heavier on Justin, in the most dramatic of moments (when he was to say his “I do’s”), Justin stopped the ceremony and bared all to Kayla: that Steve wants her back and how Steve saw him propose to her and that is why he backed off.  Armed with the knowledge and that her friends and family kept it from her, Kayla does not know what to do.  Justin helps made it easy and clear for her when he questions her … if they would be standing here getting married, if Steve had told her his true feelings before Justin proposed to her?

Justin goes on to say to Kayla that maybe she has been avoiding her true feelings for Steve, because she did not want to hurt him.  Then Justin tells Kayla that he visited his late wife Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) grave, and told her that if things were different, and if she was alive they would still be married, and Kayla would be their dear, dear friend.

With seeing the look on Kayla’s eyes, Justin knows she loves Steve.  Heartbroken, but caught in an untenable situation, Justin tells Kayla he is happy for her.  Kayla wraps her arms around Justin as they both cry.  Kayla says she never wanted to hurt him, and when Wally as Justin says, “I know, honey,” it was one of the most honest and ten-hankie moments of the entire scenario.   Justin kisses her, tells the guests there will be no wedding today, and exits the Kiriakis mansion.

The emotional drama continues in the aftermath as Justin is at Kayla’s apartment boxing up all of his belongings and tears up recalling their nights together listening to jazz and cooking dinner.  Sonny (Freddie Smith) finds his dad, and tells him he did the noble thing and that time will heal all wounds, but after Sonny leaves, Justin breaks down a bit further before exiting Kayla’s for good.

And if that was not enough, Justin goes back to Adrienne’s gravesite to update her on the wedding that did not happen.   He talks to her that he understands Kayla and Steve’s deep and enduring love, which was just like theirs was.  Next, Justin thinks he is seeing Adrienne, when none other than Bonnie Lockhart (Judi Evans) reveals she is back in Salem – talk about kicking a guy when he is down!

Throughout this entire saga, moment to moment, Kurth delivered raw, genuine, adult emotions, in a very complex adult story and relationship.   In fact, the cast and crew thought so, too!  When Wally as Justin told Kayla that he can’t marry her and the speech that followed and his exit from the mansion that followed, all those on set applauded for him.  His work was that moving.   Wally was ably assisted throughout by the outstanding work of Mary Beth Evans in these scenes.

2020, while a difficult year for everyone thus far, has been a particular great year for Kurth on Days; as over the last six months he has really had a chance to shine in this story.  So for all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV gives the “Power Performance of the Week” kudos to Wally Kurth.

DAYS Wally Kurth, Mary Beth Evans & Chandler Massey Take You Behind the Scenes of Kayla and Justin’s Wedding

On Wednesday’s heartbreaking episode of Days of our Lives, viewers saw just how the nuptials of Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Justin (Wally Kurth) eventually wound up!

Justin told Kayla that Steve (Stephen Nichols) still loves her, which put a halt to the proceedings and ended the romantic relationship between the two dear friends, who found love with one another following Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) death, and Kayla believing Steve did not want her back.

Now, The DOOL app has posted a rare behind the scenes view of the making of the wedding – with moments from the key scenes, rehearsals and interviews with the cast involved.

Chandler Massey (Will) weighs-in on Will’s debut as a wedding officiant and how that went south, while Mary Beth Evans and Wally Kurth shared why they loved this storyline so much.

Wally expresses how the last six months have been some of the best storylines of his soap career, while Mary Beth says that Justin and Kayla’s relationship was so adult and that in real life, both actors have known about people who fall in love with their dear friend, after losing their significant other whether it be by divorce, or death, or whatever the circumstance.
