Little Bo Peeps

And by “peeps” I mean “tweets,” and please forgive me for that awful pun.

Peter Reckell tweeted the following on Friday:

This was taken to mean, by various Days fans online, that he’s working out a deal to return to the show. (As far as I can tell, there’s no greater context for inferring that, but let’s go with it.)

For what it’s worth, he also tweeted the following today:

Maybe that’s his way of saying, “I didn’t leave because I hated the show or the people or wanted more money,” thus explaining why he’s open to a return? I dunno.

But I do hope this happens. This could be about a visit for the 50th anniversary, which would at least be an opportunity to give Bo and Hope some onscreen closure. But as much as I’m enjoying the development of Hope/Aiden, they could stand to be a little more… epic, you know? So I’m down for a Bo return in that regard — plus I don’t think it will ever hurt to have familiar, beloved faces on the screen. Plus they made it relatively simple for Hope to end her marriage, with minimal opposition from Caroline and none from Victor and Kayla; I’m worried they’re going to run out of story for these two if they rush past the issue of Aiden’s late wife too quickly, and then they’re going to settle into some kind of dull togetherness or a bunch of contrived shit. Honestly, it might be interesting to have Bo return and clear his name as far as having abandoned Hope (he’s been kidnapped and just escaped), only to see that she’s happy with Aiden and not want to interfere. So he steps aside and lets them be together, Hope loves Aiden but is of course drawn to Bo, maybe he gets involved with someone else (Eve? Might be fun to see Victor and Jennifer react to that)… and we get actual storytelling with some legs instead of some confusion that gets cleared up in two weeks.

  1. If he comes back now, it could air in time for the 50th anniversary. 😉

    But really? Bo has had no contact with his own mother and no one suspects he might be kidnapped/imprisoned/detained somewhere? Oh yeah… this is Salem

  2. Dan Says:

    Reckell has been in the game long enough to know what he is doing. It always amazed me how SOD always had a yearly article about “Bo’s Departure” when the show used up all of Reckell’s airtime. Everyone else had the same issue too, but Reckell’s amazingly was always publicized. With that said, I’m sure he loves his daughter and is enjoying spending time with her, but I’m not sold his decision doesn’t have to do with other issues.

    Regarding Hope and Aiden, I’m suspecting we are going to learn that Aiden’s wife died as a result of Aiden’s drinking and they will parallel this in a way to Zach’s death. That is a hurdle they can play for some time. Also, by the very nature of their professions, cop and lawyer, the show can have internal conflict for the couple if Aiden ever has a client who’s last name isn’t Horton.

    I think the show missed the boat when they had John return and say Bo was involved with a crime ring that was more dangerous than the Dimeras. I think Bo should have died as a result of his undercover operation and they should have slowly worked that family into Salem to replace the dying Dimeras. I would then reveal that Aiden was tied to that family (he was either a son who went straight or his wife was the daughter of the mob boss) and allowed the drama to play out from that.

    There was some nice Aiden/Nicole interplay the other day, which I thought was nice. I’m curious if they are just playing up their mutual connection to Daniel or if they will pursue that down the line.

      That’s a very good point. He knows he’s cultivating anticipation. If money really IS the issue, though, I think he might be sorely disappointed to see that there’s never going to be some ginormous offer to win him back.

      I love your ideas for Hope/Aiden. The drinking thing could be mined for a while, for sure. And I think they’ve at least been testing him and Nicole a bit…
