Quote CindyHaskins: I am going to remain postitive about hope having successful storyline and it is going to happen next month.some thing else did days of our lives stay true the character of bo brady when he kept putting his exes like billie and carly over his marriage to hope.
I'm remaining positive about Hope getting a sl, too - that's the ONLY reason I still read message boards - and NOBODY detested Bo with Billie & Carly more than me! However, the writers during the Billie time handled it so much better when they ended them. They had Bo TELL Billie he'd never love anyone the way he loves Hope, etc. The writing team during Carly & Bo's nasty affair, imo, had serious plans to replace Bope with Carly & Bo - kept it going WAY too long & tried to force it every way they could insulting Hope at every turn - but it just wasn't going to work so they were forced to put Bo back with Hope although VERY reluctantly and they handled that reunion as quickly, weakly, & pathetically as they possibly could. That very nearly ruined Bo's character forever - took him to rock bottom - but the fact they brought them back proved the power of that love story to the overwhelming number of their fans. No, it was wrong & VERY unpopular to do that to Bope and tarnish them like that, but they're still the most popular supercouple DAYS ever had (and they had MANY) for over 4 decades and they still deserve a "closure" story so Hope can have a chance at a successful sl without Bo. That's all I've been saying - Bo's obviously NOT coming back because they won't write decent material for him (he didn't like that "affair" sl either - not HIS choice), but Hope is staying and deserves better than she's been getting. So all they have to do IF they're planning to write a quality story for her, they MUST explain Bo's absence believably & acceptably or I just can't imagine it working for her (some may be okay with it but not the majority of their fans). Regardless of what Bo did in those past sl's Hope needs to stay true to HER character - she's established, special, & has substance and should ALWAYS be that way!!
