Holding Out For a Better Endgame For Days of Our Lives' Bo Brady
An article in this week's Soap Opera Digest previewing Peter Reckell's (Bo) exit story has Days of Our Lives fans fired up. Apparently budget cuts at the Salem Police Department cause Bo to quit. Later, Ma Brady (Peggy McKay) will remind Bo of some unfinished business he needs to take care of, which will presumably facilitate his exit.
Is this supposed to be meta? Since DAYS keeps using budget woes as a justification for losing icons, they're gonna write it into Reckell's swan song? An 80's soap superhero, who once defeated serial killers and made love at Oak Alley is gonna have a regular old midlife crisis, brought on by a job change?
What about Fancy Face? (Kristian Alfonso) Please, someone tell me Gary Tomlin and Chris Whitesell have a better endgame for my all-time favorite supercouple than this. I guess I shouldn't hold out for a hero.
