Wednesday’s episode of NBC’s Days of our Lives may just be a hankie-inducing hour of soap opera, thanks to the returns of Peter Reckell (Bo), Andrew Massett (Larry) and Joseph Mascolo (Stefano), who will all appear in the Hope-centric episode featuring DAYS icon, Kristian Alfonso (Hope).
In the special airshow, Hope is visited by many men from her past including a grown-up version of her late son Zack played by actor Scott Shilstone.
Alfonso previewed to TV Line the emotional turmoil Hope has been in over many months in her personal life, and the loss she experienced has led to this moment for her: “I called it the Scrooge episode, because Hope goes to the Horton cabin to think without any distractions and just breathe, and, of course, as soon as she exhales, she’s visited by many people.”
Of course, longtime Bope fans will be excited to see Kristian and Peter Reckell share scenes one more time, especially since Bo died back in November of 2015. Alfonso revealed: “Just imagine that you were given the opportunity to feel like you could hold someone that you loved so deeply and so purely one more time — there are no words to express that enormity of emotion. There are certain moments in this episode that I felt were so Bo and Hope.”
Meanwhile, Peter Reckell took to his Twitter on Tuesday and told his followers: “I forgot about that little scene in today’s show. Hope you enjoy tomorrow’s show! We had a great time taping it. Just like old times.”
