Stephen Nichols (Patch) and Peter Reckell (Bo) are back in the saddle at Days of our Lives, where the guys completed, according to a tweet from Nichols this afternoon, 7 episodes in two days!

While pictured her is some older images of Patch and Bo, if you head on over to Yahoo TV, they have the very exclusive first look picture of Stephen Nichols and Peter Reckell together again as the dynamic duo from the set of the NBC soap opera set to turn 50 years old in November, which is the impetus for bringing these two beloved characters back into the fold … and for some major story!

Yahoo reports: “The actors are currently filming their episodes, with Nichols, last seen on the show in 2009, set to reappear at the end of August, and Reckell, who was last seen on DOOL in 2012, returning early in September. And yes, the friends and former brothers-in-law will share scenes together …. as the series welcomes back the actors for multiple episodes.”

Nichols tweeted today: “We had a great time our first week back together. More to come! Thanks Ken C. & @DenaHigley & @tvjoshgriffith &Crew”

So, what do you think will happen in story from the looks of the “First Look” photo at Yahoo, and that the duo are appearing in multiple episodes of the sudser?  Excited to see Patch and Bo together again?  Comment below!

Cannot wait to see them on screen!!! Can we skip ahead a few months?! The anticipation is too much 😉 The original posted stated they were only back for the 7 episodes that the filmed in 2 days but both Stephen and Peter have tweeted that is not the case!!! Thank God because the fans and Days need them for as long as possible!

Patrick did you hear Mary Beth Evans is back on contract an shooting like mad these days? Whether this has to do with SN has yet to be seen obviously, but hopefully this means that regardless, we’ll continue to see her on our screen in story.

BTW- HEY! How you doing pal?

“multiple episodes” are the words of Yahoo, not DAYS brass. Yahoo had an earlier version of the article that had to be changed for the false report of only a seven episode appearance.

sorry… have to honest

I tried Generations.. when it was aired… I couldn’t get it

thankfully… the audience as well.. as it lasted.

Generations is an American soap opera that aired on NBC from March 27, 1989, to January 25, 1991. The show was groundbreaking in that it was the first soap opera to feature from its inception an African-American family.

I thought you watched both, Su…including GH.
No matter which way the storylines go, I will never stop watching. For me there are only three left. I never got into watching B&B.

I watch 2 soaps..
Y&R and GH ..
But – since Y&R lost Billy Miller, Michael Muhney, Michelle, and other characters I really liked, like Tucker, Chloe, Y&R has been empty of the greatness it once was..

A change is always good..

I just watched Dark Shadow on Decades network on broadcast tv, now that is soap!!
It started in black n white and then went to color..
It was bursting with the best campy I have ever seen!!! brilliant campy!
Dark Shadows= you can’t watch just one, you need more and more..

anyways,, I need a Y&R break..

@su000. I know what you mean about a Y&R…it leaves me for a lot yo be desired. But, I feel that there’s a force making me watch, su…LOL.

CeeCee, hi .. I do not know how you will ever see Dark Shadows..

Convention held annually since 1983, usually in New York or Los Angeles and the 2016 convention is scheduled .. you should go lol Dark Shadows Fan Club is going strong, still… Dark Shadows is like rock&roll, it will never die..

@su : have to agree with CeeCee

“…there’s a force making me watch, ”

LOL… it’s what makes… this “Michael Fairman” site… so blissful… a place to water cooler.. and place

if you chose to watch Y&R … it’d be tough to not watch…

don’t you ever stop watching GH… your snippets are priceless…

so… if your heart belongs to Genoa.. I don’t think you’ll not

if i had the time… to watch my denizens of Genoa City… i’d be their right along with… that being said… I read all posts regarding the #1 show… albeit questionable

I have been watching Days of Our Lives since I was a child and I can remember all the great actors and actress that have been on there. These two are amazing actors and I can’t wait to see them both back and hopefully to stay. The emotion they can show and the chemistry they have is truly amazing. Welcome back to DOOL.

You’re so excited and you just can’t hide it…Please help spread the word. Tell all your friends and family. Let coworkers know. How about your mail carrier? Are you within shouting distance of neighbors? The checkout counter at the grocery store is a great way to spread the word! Some people refuse to go online…can you take an place an AD in your local newspaper. When I was doing a roofing job, I literally shouted from the rooftop and more roofs to come!!!!! Please do what you can to get the word out, everyone!

I don’t watch this soap but I may just tune in to see Stephen Nichols…always like to see an ol’ fave wherever they wind up. As disappointing as it might be for fans of DAYS if it’s not a long arc…I’m hoping this means Nicols will eventually reprise his role as Stefan on GH…

I have been doing the happy dance since I found out that Bo is coming home. If the writers have any sense at all they will send this jerk loser creep Aiden packing. We all know Fancy Face only has one real love and that is Bo Brady. To pair Hope with anybody other than Bo is a huge mistake.

I am so glad they are bringing Peter and Steven back. I hope they have some good story lines. I have missed Bo and Patch.

When DAYS knew they would be firing the writers, they asked several writers for a bible of storyline plans concerning the 50th anniversary and beyond…Dena Higley and Josh Griffith submitted meaty material which no one could deny!

Be prepared to witness the writing team’s greatness that will push DAYS to 55!!!!!

Place an AD in your local paper! Tell all your old school friends!! Turn the neighborhood watch into DAYS watchers!!! Visit a nursing home and turn the channel to NBC on the lobby TV!!!! Don’t cook for your husband unless he watches with you!!!!!

I’ve just never been a fan of Peter’s “Bo Brady.” I’ve always thought Peter’s Bo was written as a Keystone Kop who never cracked or solved a case. Robert Kelker Kelly’s Bo, I thought-was charming, handsome, and tough. Honestly, between nuWill-the actor himself and the character’s antics, lack of love stories (besides Hope and Aidan who are really cute), the Theresa show, Eve’s drama with “that boy,” and the other lackluster stuff going on in Salem-will need to tune-out for a bit, I think. I miss Kristen!

I am beyond thrilled that they are both back! They were the heart of this show for soooo long!!! However, I’m getting nervous that their return is only for a short time. Even worse, If they are bringing Bo back only to die off and give Hope the OK to be with someone else, I will be devastated!!!!!! When Peter said to get the tissues out,it made me really nervous!!! I love them both and cannot wait to see them back on screen,. They need contracts!!!!!!!! There are several new, young actors on who really DON”T CUT IT!!!!!! For example,… Read more »

Vincent Irizarry Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

There will be a Deimos Kiriakias sighting next week on NBC’s Days of our Lives, and viewers will get to see Daytime Emmy winner, Vincent Irizarry, back in this bad boy role.

In story, MarDevil (Deidre Hall) decides its time to resurrect some of the Salem deceased, and from the looks of it will choose not so nice-ones to wreak a bit of havoc on the residents of the town.

As DAYS fans recall, back in 2017, Nicole (Arianne Zucker) killed Deimos when he set out to drug everyone at a major party with the hallucinogen Halo all in his effort to steal a a valued amulet.

Irizarry confirmed his return via Facebook by simply stating: “Heeeeere’s Deimos! 👿

Now, who else will be stirring up trouble from beyond the grave on Halloween week on Days? Share your thoughts below and if you are excited to see Vincent back in Salem for the spookiest time of the year!

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abe Goes to the Light While John Faces Off with MarDevil

Monday’s highly-anticipated episode of Days of our Lives did not disappoint. In fact, we think that this episode should be a strong contender for DAYS to consider for one of their Outstanding Drama Series submissions for next year’s Daytime Emmys.  Why? It has it all – emotional heart with Abe’s journey to and from the light, touching flashbacks, a great performance by James Reynolds, and some special effects and editing during the John (Drake Hogesytn) vs. MarDevil scenes, which also gave us a delicious performance by Deidre Hall.

At the start of the episode, Abe has flatlined after being shot as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) tries to revive him, but they are losing him.  As this is going on, Paulina (Jackée Harry), Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are gathered at the hospital awaiting news on Abe’s condition.  Later, Eli decides to go find out what is happening with Abe, and gets the shock of his life when he walks in on Abe flatlining, while Kayla tells him that Abe is gone.  Eli implores her to try to bring him back. He tells the others they are working on trying to save Abe, as Julie and Paulina bond, and later, Lani must call Theo and Brandon to let them know about Abe’s condition.

Julie reminisces about Abe, and how they have known each other for 40 years, our wink-wink that this is James Reynolds’ 40th anniversary episode.   Then, we see Abe has gone to the light wearing a white sweater and who should he see but his beloved late wife, Lexie.  No, it’s not Renee Jones, but an actress who delivers Lexie’s lines, since it had been previously reported that Jones was unavailable for the episode.  In scenes with the replacement Lexie, Reynolds showed us why he is an MVP of DAYS.  He acted up a storm and brought the emotion regardless of who was standing there.

 

However, longtime viewers got a wonderful surprise when flashback clips of scenes between Renee Jones and Reynolds were shown and they were some major moments in the history of Abe and Lexie’s relationship including: the moment when Abe learns Lexie’s pregnant, the moment when he is disgusted by Lexie’s betrayal when he learned of her involvement in the Zack baby switch storyline, and what she did to Bo and Hope, all because she was desperate for a child. Later, it’s the five-hankie moment of when Lexie, who was dying from a brain tumor, passes away in Abe’s arms.

After all the flashbacks, Lexie tells Abe he needs to go back and not to come with her to heaven. He has children, and people who love him and need him. Eventually, he says his goodbyes to Lexie and returns to the present, just as Kayla is about to call his time of death in the hospital room. All of a sudden, Abe’s heart begins to beat.

Photo: JPI

Kayla brings Julie, Eli, Lani, and Paulina the news that Abe will need surgery, but he will make it.  Then, Paulina and Lani make their way to see him. In another emotional moment, they tell him how much they love him (Paulina looks worried about her lie being exposed that Lani is not really Abe’s bio-daughter).  As the episode comes to its conclusion, we see the back of Lexie making sure Abe is safe and sound among the living, while signifying she is watching over him.

And if that was not enough, this episode also picked up where John had confronted MarDevil in the church, letting Satan knows he is on to him and that he is not going to win … he is going to get Marlena back.  Satan drives home the point that Marlena belongs to him now.  John is mortified as the cross on the church wall turns upside down. Later to show off his prowess and control, MarDevil turns the holy water blood red. As the scene progresses, MarDevil is jumping all over the church and showing up in different spots.

Photo: JPI

John then gets the lowdown on how Satan struck a deal with Marlena to let Doug (Bill Hayes) live if she let him in.  That is followed, by some of the back-story of Marlena’s first possession over 25 years ago, and why it happened when she was alone and very distraught.  MarDevil even goes on to say that he tried once before to regain control of Marlena during the Salem Serial Killer storyline, but it did not work out that time, because all the victims turned out to be alive.  MarDevil brings up Stefano and how he had made Marlena believe John was dead which left her vulnerable.  He goes on to relate that Doug was the gateway for Marlena’s re-possession.

Photo: JPI

MarDevil tells John what she did with Doug by committing him and how she wanted to kill Julie. John knows that Marlena can hear him and tries to bring her back, but as the devil struggles with that, ultimately, he wins and begins to show his strength to John tossing him around the church, where he is eventually is knocked unconscious and then dragged to, we don’t know where, by the MarDevil!

Throughout the scenes, Deidre Hall looked like she was having so much fun playing the devilish one in this campy storyline revisited.

So, what did you think of James Reynolds performance and his 40th anniversary episode? What was your favorite moment? Are you glad John knows for certain now that Marlena is once again possessed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
