Everything about this article is hilarious but my favorite line was: "Caroline lashes out at Roman and tells him to start treating Bo as a brother rather than an employee." Yea, because he hasn't spent years already, covering for him and every other Brady operating outside of the law. Just wondering, why isn't Bo consulting Hope on any of this? I guess she doesn't have to take a pay cut and so he's mad? Will this turn into a rehash of the disgruntled cop kidnapping story? It's Tomlin, so I'm crossing my fingers.....

This all sounds so stupid!

Thanks for typing it up Ellie!

The whole idea of Bo being cut by the SPD is ridiculous...he is one of their most SENIOR detectives...IRL no way in HELL would any top detectives at ANY department be given a pay cut.

LOL its preposterous!
have you noticed that Rafe has not had one single line about budget cuts & potential firings at the SPD? One would assume that he would've gotten the same memo as everyone else. of course, this is TomSell we're talking about, and Rafe is one of their pets. I have no doubt that whatever ridiculous promotion Roman gave Rafe secures him his position & no paycut. Such utter crap!
I know...its ridiculous and SO transparent.

IRL, Rafe would have been tossed out on his ass in this situation.

It's as though some writer was alll, "Fuck it, we have no cash...let's just have the Salem PD have no cash either and away goes Bo Brady."

So, I appreciate the laziness of it. I mean that seriously, too. There's something...honest about the lack of effort and creativity.

Also awesome: "Bo, you're too much of a rebel to be a cop. Go be a stay-at-home father. You know, as rebels do."
They are just towing the company line...everything done at DAYS lacks effort and creativity...why would Bo's exit be any different.

Heh.

I do think there is another twist to this (probably a lame one).

Not only did :huh1: Just get a promotion, he's currently covering up a crime.

If there were any justice in this soap world his ass would be canned leaving extra $ for Bo.

And don't think that I'm not thinking real life shouldn't parallel this.

The other thing is, Peter Reckell apparently has enough money saved to leave Days at this point. Why in the world would Bo Brady, though? The Bradys have always been written as possibly-upper middle class. And now Bo is leaving his job while his wife is getting a paycut? Have we heard about any hidden nest egg for these two? This is on the same level as John playing with Marlena's gold necklace in their lavish townhouse as she tells him they're too broke to order out for Chinese.

Well you know, every scene that Bo and Hope have? I'm thinking to myself "this is exactly what is going on for real, with Peter Reckell." Am I the only one who thinks that? I mean, it's almost exactly the same things he has said in interviews....

I have been thinking the same thing.

This whole thing is stupid.

I do not know what to say or think about this lame story. :(
I wish they would have found a way to keep Peter. I just do not get why the vets cannot get some story. it does not have to totally revolve around the younger set

Hope used to have a trust fund, but I think they decided that that was going to be their kids' college fund back when Bo & Hope decided to be bounty hunters in 2003 & had money problems. Didn't Bo & Hope lose a chunk of their savings when Stefano/EJ went after John & Basic Black last September? They wouldn't have a lot to live off of if they never did get it back. Maybe Bo & Hope secretly figured out those damn bank accounts & realized that Alice was hiding money for them in case they ever needed it?!

If I wanted to get finicky, this is the second MAJOR crime he has covered up, and everyone knows it but whatevs, it's not like there is much of a definitive line between good and evil on this show.

I would've rather them had Bo do something that got him kicked off the force. At least that would go along with the character's history and tendencies.

McCay's line about Bo pursuing unfinished business has me intrigued.

Ironic how Rafe gets rehired and a promotion all while the dept is laying people off. Also ironic that Rafe has spent the last few weeks doing next to nothing. I thought part of having a job meant you actually had to spend time at work. Silly me.
