Peter Reckell Tweets: "Not Promising Anything But, There Maybe Some Progress!" Is A DAYS Return In the Works?

Former Days of our Lives fan favorite Peter Reckell (Bo) left the series a few years back, and since that time has not made a return. Diehard Bo and Reckell fans have hoped and wished to see him again on the their screens.

Meanwhile, his DAYS on-screen love interest Kristian Alfonso (Hope) has moved into a new romance with Daniel Cosgrove’s Aiden, and things are continuing to heat up for the couple as the show tells the dissolution of the marriage of Hope and Bo, with Bo being off-screen.

Today, Peter Reckell posted a tweet to his followers on Twitter that read:  “Thks 4 the love u guys! I very much appreciate your comments & keeping me up 2 date. Not promising anything but, there maybe some progress!”

So what could he be referring to?  Is a short term stint in the works for Reckell to come back and close out the story?  Would he even consider returning at this juncture in his life?  Or, could he not be referring to DAYS at all in his tweet, but some other project? 

Share your thoughts below!  Would you be interest in a Reckell return at this point?  Or, do you think the Hope and Aiden should go on with their romance story without Bo in the mix a tall?

I agree! I want him back. But for good, not just short term. Days is not Days without him.
And it isn’t his fault that the writers totally botched this story…what were they thinking dragging it out like this???

If he comes back short term or longer i’ll be fine with it but honestly’ if he doesnt come back at all, it wouldnt bother me one way or the other…this has dragged out ‘Will he, or wont he’, for soooo long that I…oh, what Rhett Butler said to Scarlett near the end of GWTW…lol

You know, if this was a report about a definate return instead of yet another speculation, then it would be ‘news’…but instead its a guessing game and this paticular one has become a bit tiresome…

I agree. Let Hope move on. Maybe Bo could come back at some later date. On another note , please let Nicole be happy. I’m starting to feel sorry for her since every one in town is against her.

jimh: I agree. I was never a “Bo” fan. I started watching DOOL when RKK played Bo. I liked RKK as Bo. Peter as Bo-always seemed too cocky-honestly, I’m not sure if he ever solved a case for the Salem PD while I watched DOOL!

Bo and Hope are my all time favorite Super Couple. I haven’t watch DOOL for a very long time…I stopped after he left and they killed off Jack. I may start watching again. And if they bring back Jack, I will watch for sure.

I think Jack will find his way home too. With all the Jack references I think it is inevitable. I hope so.

I would like to see Bo get a proper send off, but more importantly I want to see Hope move forward. They’ve left her in limbo long enough. I like her with Aiden, so far.

I’d love for Peter to return at least for a short stint to close out the story. It would be even better if he came back permanently, because I’ve really missed Bo since he’s been gone. I love him and Hope together, but I’m also liking Hope and Aiden. So if Bo does return, I’d rather see him paired up with someone else so the show can explore Hope and Aiden more, at least for now. I’d also love for him to bring Belle and Shawn with him if he comes back!

Woo hoo. Would love to see him back on days even if is to close out the storyline.

i hope so. what a great story . Bo come back just as hope and aiden get seriers . hope would be in an almost same situation that Bo was in with billie , when hope return in 1995. hope is all mad and angry with bo for choice his mission over his family, they angry and he pulls her into on of those kisses like we did in aramid in 1995. come on days work with Peter , days needs him.11

If he comes back let it be for a short time to tie up loose ends. I love Hope and Aiden together and i’m sick of these husbands just walking away from their families. You people can write better stories than that. I hope somewhere along the way that Zack returns and his death or faked death was caused by Stephino.

I think it would be great for the show if Peter came back. But only if they give him a decent story line – nothing on the back burner. I also have been enjoying Hope/Aiden. Kinda wished they had “killed” off Bo, had Hope fall in love with Aiden…and then after a while, Bo was discovered alive again – maybe with amnesia or something. Good old-fashioned soap drama!

It seems as though both parties are having a tough time coming to terms…whatever that entails only they would know for sure…however, I don’t think we want to go through the scenario that GH played out with (Robin) Kim McCollough… it was a terrible failure.

I understand the need for closure, but hopefully they will both do what is best for the fans of the show.

I would like to Bo come back to Days of our lives. Only if he is going to stay and be with hope and their daughter if he is not going to stay on Days of our lives than no he should not come back on let hope move on with her life. If he is not going to come back to be on Days of our lives to be with hope and their daughter than let her and aiden get together i think they are going to make a cute couple anyway!!!!

My whole life has mirrored Bo and Hope..I have been through so many trials and tribulations myself. My Husband today looked and acted just like Bo Brady in High School and believe me the chase was on to get him..it succeeded! Today we have two sons Tristan 16 and Tyler 7. Tristan was diagnosed with Leukemia back in 2008, he fought and won it and just getting through his treatments we… Read more »

If he’s not coming back long-term, don’t bother. I think he needs to stop with these teaser tweets that get his fans worked up for nothing. Then when nothing comes to fruition, they blame Days.

Oh Sharon, I agree with you 100%!! This isn’t the first time he’s left and teased about coming back..Plus he’s been teasing this ALL year. He’s left and returned to the show MANY times. I don’t blame him not wanting to take a paycut or be on the backburner. I support him and agree Bo shouldn’t be on the backburner. Bo & Hope were amazing for sure and ALL the daytime soaps are in DESPERATE need of supercouples right now! IMO. It just seems like such a jerk thing to do to say “not promising anything, but there MAY be… Read more »

Bigger fear, John Is going to somehow spin it that Kristen is the one who hit him causing the coma, thus her exit from the show, then he will somehow blackmail Teresa to keep her away from Brady and get away with it all.

Guest
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I too mention under a previous thread that John will blackmail Theresa to stay away from Brady…i do like the idea that he will blame Kristen for hitting him and it’ll lead to her exit but didnt that happen before Kristens arrival…and everyone knows Theresa was at the scene and said Brady struck him so wouldnt they wonder why she wouldnt claim Kristen was there and did it instead of blaming Brady…that would have been an awesome twist but it just wouldnt work out since Kristen wasnt around!!!

I was not please when they fired Robert Keller Kelly as Bo to bring back Peter Reckell as Bo because I knew it would be a matter of time at some point Peter would want out of Days as he did in 1988 and return in the early 1990’s but to then leave again in 92 at that point was replace with Robert K. Kelly and with that Peter Reckell was shock that his replacement actually work with cast crew and fans and Peter did not want a recast Bo because he felt it would not work and boy was… Read more »

I like BOTH Peter Reckell AND Robert Kelker-Kelly. I would not have minded either one of them portraying Bo on Days – surprised that RKK was not asked to come back. But, if Peter Reckell is willing to come back – either for a while or longer, I’d be happy. It’s okay for Hope to move on with Aidan – Bo/Peter could still return to Salem (where he belongs, since he’s been on the show for SO many years, it’s still difficult to imagine Salem without him.) Perhaps the writer and he (Peter) are “making progress” on a deal in… Read more »

I would be glad to see Peter come back especially with Allison and James leaving, I would like to see him return. Still like the vets from the past, and enjoy seeing them when they come back. If he comes, hope they give him a good storyline. Loved the storylines and romance from the Bo and Hope era. That is when Days was at the top of its game.

I think Bo and Hope has run its course. They need to give Bo and Hope a chance to say good bye for closure. Then Aiden needs to stay with Hope and then Bo needs to go back to Carly

2015 marks Days of Our Lives 50th anniversary and I think we will see the return of Peter Reckell as Bo Brady in 2015. I just hope that the return is not short-term but rather long-term because Bo & Hope are my favorite all-time soap couple. Still, I do like Hope & Aiden and how the show has slowly-built the pairing. I think that was a smart way to diffuse potential backlash from diehard Bo & Hope fans. Rushing the couple is one of the many problems with Jennifer & Daniel. Besides from having an ounce of chemistry, the couple… Read more »

Please bring back Peter Reckell back as Bo. Kristian Alfonso and Peter Reckell really do work so well together. They have been such an important part of the show that it’s hard to imagine Days without either one of them. Hoping that Bo will return and that they will reunite. In the scene where Hope writes the letter she comments that she will always love Bo. Her heart belongs to him and no one can replace him .. Not even Aiden. If Peter returns it will make for some great scenes. Bring him back ASAP!

Although Bo & Hope are legendary characters I am fine with him not returning. I have always liked Daniel Cosgrove and think he has been a great addition to the cast. Days may not have written Bo off the canvas in the best way but in part that is due to PR’s not wanting to return or willingness to only return if Bo has major story all the time. His complaint was that Bo was not utilized properly. Well, I am sure every actor on all the shows would like to be front & center all the time but that’s… Read more »

Apparently you have not watched this show since the beginning and witnessed the connection between these two actors!! Days of our Lives needs this super couple back!!! Now that EJ and Sami are gone the show NEEDS this to survive

Chaz
Guest

Apparently you are unaware that Days debuted in 1965 but Kristian Alfonso & Peter Reckell did not join until 1983 so watching the show from the beginning is immaterial. Reckell CHOSE to leave and obviously will not be returning so it is unfair to leave KA in limbo working only sporadically. Pairing her with Cosgrove gives her story and airtime.

I am sure the show will stay on the air with or without Mr. Reckell.

I am 58 years old and been watching this show from the time it started as a child. When I work I listen to it on the radio every day with ear plugs. Bo and Hope belong together.

Have been a Reckell fan from the start…He needs to properly close out the Bo and Hope union (or if I had my wish, re-establish Bope) He cannot allow a divorce to happen and resign to this with a wimpering silence off screen. This is Bo and Hope we’re talking about. If he comes home to fight for his marriage but continue his mission, and loses the marriage in process, well so be it. But I’m hoping that they still leave the door open for Bo to return, however that looks. Even if its only on a recurring status. With… Read more »

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.

DAYS Emily O’Brien Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

She has been a polarizing character since her arrival in Salem, with some fans screaming Gwen is sucking up too much airtime.  HOWEVER, the performances by Emily O’Brien (Gwen) show an actress on top of her craft who can play, as Gwen called herself, “A miserable, vindictive bitch”, or a young woman so deeply-emotionally wounded that you might just come around and eventually feel some empathy for her.

Last week, while the soaps were pre-empted for most of the week due to the senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, DAYS posted all of its weekly episodes online on NBC.com, the NBC app, or on the Peacock streaming platform, and O’Brien’s work was a standout.

Photo: JPI

It all came to a boiling point when Laura (Jaime Lyn Bauer) and Gwen have the long-awaited confrontation in Gwen’s room at the Salem Inn, where O’Brien goes from Gwen baiting Laura to tell her dirty secret of her long-ago affair with Jack (Matthew Ashford), to her utter anger at how because of it, Laura trashed Gwen’s entire life.

 

Laura reveals the guilt she felt for sleeping with Jack, so much so, that she would do anything to save Jennifer (Cady McClain) and Jack’s marriage.  In delight at getting to the root of the truth, Gwen responds: “You slept with Jack? That is just perfect! My father slept with his mother-in-law!”

Then, Laura shares how it happened.  They were both at the “Meadows” finding their ‘truest selves’ and they were both using other names – she, Monica and he, Clark, and Laura had never seen a photo of Jack before to know it was him!  Gwen wants to burst out in hysterical laughter, but then she becomes filled with rage knowing that if Laura hadn’t bought off her birth mother, Tiffany, her own life would have been very different.  She goes on to say that she and Abigail (Marci Miller) might even be close as sisters, but instead of “borrowing her clothes, she borrowed her husband” alluding to sleeping with Chad (Billy Flynn).  Next, Gwen wants to make Laura pay and lets Laura know that, “All the damage that you did, can’t be undone.” When Laura tries to leave, Gwen stops her and says in no uncertain terms, “I want revenge, because you ruined my life and you’re not going to get away with it!”

Photo: JPI

Next, we see that there had been a struggle with Laura dead on the floor bleeding out of her head.  A freaked-out Gwen does not know what to do.  She realizes she will be accused of murder.  With no one in town to call, she decides to call her father, Jack.  When he shows up at the Salem Inn, Jack is shocked, and grief-stricken to see his mother-in-law, dead.  Gwen swears to Jack this was an accident and that she did not kill Laura, and that he has to believe her.  Jack decides he will stand by his daughter.  Gwen wants to get rid of the body, Jack says he can’t be involved in a cover-up, so he calls Rafe (Galen Gering).  When Rafe arrives at the crime scene he is very suspicious of Gwen, and takes her down to the station.

Scene after scene, O’Brien layered her performances with venomous and ominous undertones, illustrating a woman with so much emotional baggage who becomes desperate to save herself.  For all these reasons, Michael Fairman TV names Emily’s work, The Power Performance of the Week.
