This week as the celebration ramps up, NBC.com has released a 2-minute clip package featuring Tom and Alice – the iconic MacDonald Carey and Frances Reid – and Caroline and Shawn played by Peggy McCay and Frank Parker.

Featured in the retrospective to honor the legacy of the longest-running scripted show in NBC history are moments from: the first scenes between Tom and Alice discussing the Horton children all having left the family nest, and one of the great hankie moments of all-time when Alice walks-in and hears Tom recite his poetry under his pen name and alias Norm de Pleume, and is so touched to learn that his poetry reading is all about his love for her.

Meanwhile, Caroline and Shawn are seen lovingly in a moment where Caroline sings to her now deceased husband as the show honors the matriarchs are of both long-enduring families who have meant so much to the series, and to its fans.

Watch the Hortons and the Bradys clip after the jump!  Let us know what was your favorite moment from it! And tell us your favorite Tom and Alice or Caroline and Shawn moments through the years!

I know so many people love 80’s Days, but Bill Bell wrote so many amazing Stories during his era. SL’s that are still being played out today. Kinda crazy that we will never have HW’s like Agnes, Douglas, Pat Falken Smith, Sherri Anderson, Harding Lemay, Sam Hall/Gordon Russell, and Bill Bell.

But it saddens me that in an era where Daytime could actually be breaking more ground like it did in the… Read more »

Travis, I totally agree with you. Give me the DAYS from the Bell era! The storytelling and the acting were so compelling, which you don’t see on the soaps these days. I remember every writer that you mentioned and they were creative and didn’t need to be cartoonist and my favorite word CAMPY. So many viewers today take that as a sign of a great writer. Think about this; back in the 60s and 70s, networks combined, there were about 16 to 17 soaps on the air. Now, we down to four. Not that hard to understand why. I wish… Read more »

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
