Dark DAYS continue and this one has everyone abuzz, and serves up much conjecture!
On Friday in a major cliffhanger, after being baited and taunted by her arch-enemy Stefano DiMera (Joe Mascolo), a disraught Hope (Kristian Alfons0) plugs the guy with not one, not two, but three bullets to finish him off! Now even though the Phoenix always rises again, did Hope murder the DiMera kingpin once and for all? Hope came to the DiMera mansion to have it out with Stefano, and her tortured past at the hands of him gets dredged up. Hope believes Stefano was behind Bo’s (Peter Reckell) capture and imprisonment that led to the escalation of his brain tumor and his ultimate death.
A very angry and revenge-filled Hope confronts Stefano, who to get her to leave tells her that she is right he did everything to Bo, even though he also added that what he is saying is bogus. Stefano tells Hope she doesn’t have the guts to hurt him. He even tells her to grab the gun in the drawer and shoot him. She doesn’t have to do that. You see, Hope brought her own gun. And after Stefano’s continued insults and utter nastiness towards her, Hope loses it. She screams out and fires three shots. A bloody Stefano goes down … chess piece and all!
What did you think about the final scenes of Friday’s cliffhanger? Did Hope finally “checkmate” Stefan for good? Watch a preview for next week’s DAYS with the latest promo from NBC, where Rafe (Galen Gering) comes upon the scene and looks to be covering up Hope’s crime!
