Okay, so Hope takes Ciara to Doug and Julie's? Do we know if they have a house in Salem? Because I know someone (sorry can't remember who) said that Kristian probably tested really well with Galen, maybe Kristian is the next vet to get fired and Peter really tested well with Galen so TPTB are going in that direction! One never knows with this show :drunk:

The whole Bo and his "Visions" storyline is beyond stupid.
It never made me feel excited, or eager to tune in. There was no suspense or intrigue or drama.. It was/is .. Just stupid.
Now from what Ive read here (Cuz I no longer watch) It sounds as if it gets even worse.
To suggest that this stupidity would seperate Bo and hope after all they have been through is rediculous. As Ive said before the characters it took decades to build have been turned inside out and are no longer recognizable as the people we came to love(Or hate).

I no longer care who is writing what, Its all been terrible.

I still say that this is completely ridiculous. Something this stupid shouldn't warrant a breakup, or even the threat of one, for Bo and Hope. Just ridiculous.

Thanks Ellie!
I have to agree. Considering the umteen things they have worked through as a couple, him not telling her of a vision is cause for her to move out and lose trust in him. The magnitude of this action is just so up there with their past problems like her sleeping with Patrick & John, keeping JT/Zach's paternity a secret, him sleeping with Billie, siding with his daughter who killed their son. No, he doesn't spill about a vision and she leaves. Wow, how asinine is this contrived story?

I don't really understand why people are surprised.

This is simply a plot point. The writers wanted Bo and Hope separated. Same thing happened with J&M - the divorce was silly but they wanted them separated supposedly for some story coming up. I didn't like it with J&M either, but I had decided to just let that darned divorce happen to get it out of the way.

The writers aren't going to come up with something wonderful and compelling, this is just the way Days is now.

They will have them separated and somehow put them with someone else. Icky Dan or maybe Ej for Hope or Rafe - I guess Brady's out of the question? I'm not sure about Bo. Nicole, Chloe, Kate?

This is the new and improved Days. It seems like the current Days audience (aside from Bope fans still watching for their couple) loves random coupling. This will give them lots of story.

Not a love story, but Days doesn't do love anymore. It's all about the porn!

Oh, believe me, I'm definitely not surprised that this crap is being put out by the hacks running the show.

I'm not surprised either. Beyond annoyed, yes. Surprised? Hardly.

I don't know it they would put Hope with EJ even though I think that Kristian and James would have great chemistry ... I think if they go for a short term relationship it has to be either Rafe or god forbid Daniel, I don't think that Brady is out of the question either he is John's son afterall Like Father Like Son... Plus Bo could have vision of Hope with another man - that could drive him crazy!

Peter Reckell made it clear way back in November when they first started filming that this storyline had absolutely no third wheel, no interloper (to which he commented "thank god" :D) Apparently it was either this or bringing Billie back again to split them up.

So all the speculating can stop now, for once we don't get some twisted cheating plot brekaing up a couple....

I think it was stated that a third party wouldn't be involved in WHY they broke up. That doesn't mean they can't or won't get involved with other people while they are broken up.

GET EM STEPH!!

^They are probably staying at a suite or maybe they rented something. I mean, even if they are in and out of town, they should have a place in Salem or should be living with Alice at least.

I would've preferred she said she was moving in with Alice, actually.

It's a crime what they're doing to Bo and Hope right now.

I can do little more than shake my head and sigh with disappointment...

I forgot to add the biggest problem with this story. How many times have we seen Bo and Hope in this very situation? One of them is hiding the truth in order to protect the other, even though the secret hider is OBVIOUSLY keeping something...thus, the other one keeps pressing them about it. Then it escalates into some drama and big reveal....concluding with Bo and Hope agreeing to NEVER keep secrets ever again.

This all seems so juvenile, especially since they agree over and over again not to keep secrets. They have no other story for Bope? This is just an absolute and utter insult. The only time this kind of behavior is justifiable was perhaps during Zach's death story...and even so, that turned into an excuse to break them up temporarily too.

I have mixed feelings about all of this.

On the one hand, if I were happy my couple were still on, I'd try to think it could be interesting and keep an open mind that it will be a good story in the end. But the writing is so one-dimensional I think it will just be garbage. No substance, no nuance, no real feeling. Everything will be played for shock value that is empty when everything is said and done. In the end, you have nothing except diminished great characters.

I can see a couple in love breaking up. People are busy in their everyday lives, perhaps taking each other for granted. One gets involved in something, the other feels left out, and consoles themselves with a friend. They both find themselves spending more time with someone else. One of them strays. It's not about not loving each other. It's about feeling wanted and needed, useful, vital, and losing your way. I didn't want Bo and Hope with Patrick or Billie, but I did like some things about those stories. They just overplayed it till we were sick to death of it, imo.

There was no build-up here. The premise is just lame. I would expect this type of thing from a ten year old, not a real writer.

So once broken up, I don't have faith the writers will show any integrity with how they treat Bo and Hope. That's what disturbs me the most. As much as many fans hated Hope/John, at least they kept the premise that Bo was the only man that 'real' Hope had ever loved and that their feelings were deep and true, and their love could overcome anything, even Stefano. Bo steadfastly stood by her even when he thought Stefano might be the father of their child. He loved her unconditionally (till he realized John might be the father, lol, but he even got over that).

I don't imagine these writers even caring about love being a factor at all. I see them with a character board and lines going back and forth as they discuss the show:

'They've had sex.' 'They've had sex.' 'Here's a pairing we haven't done yet!'
