For those who watched Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives, you know that the iconic love story of Bo (Peter Reckell) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) came to a tragic end. But it afforded an opportunity for fans of the supercouple to get much needed closure, something they were not able to have three years ago when Peter Reckell left the series.
However, as we previously reported, DAYS delivered a tearjerker episode where Bo dies in Hope’s arms. On Friday evening, after the episode had aired in all markets, Kristian Alfonso took to her Twitter account with a special message. It spoke about the opportunity she and Peter Reckell were given decades ago joining the NBC soap opera, the undying love from the audience for Bo and Hope, and how this marked the end of an era.
Kristian tweeted: “Pete & I were given an incredible gift when we joined @nbcdays . Thank you all so much for all your Love & Support through the years. Thank You for taking the journey with us ,with Bo & Hope ❤️”
Beautifully put, as sad as it is to know that all good things must come to an end. Alfonso summed up how much the support from the audience has meant to both herself and Peter Reckell. But in good news, Kristian had just signed a contract extension with DAYS to stay put, so expect lots of drama ahead for Hope.
Is hard to believe it’s the end of Bo and Hope? When did you first fall in love with the duo? Were you watching them back in the 80′s? What do you think about the sentiments shared by Kristian to the fans? Comment below!
