Quote CindyHaskins: When bo and hope were on days of our lives together the were nothing but a boring couple to watch.i am so glad that the show is going to pair hope with aiden maybe he can give her all the love and devotion bo never did.as for bo he has ever right to be trash because all he was nothing but a liar and cheater that ways put his exes over hope ever time the came back to salem.
Like him/them or not, it's completely inargurable when Bo & Hope were given quality story material by true professional writers and were kept TRUE to the characters they were created to be, DAYS stayed in the top tier of the ratings. When a writing team came (Dena Higley & Co.) is when the demeaning/weakening of their love story happened and Bo was taken TOTALLY OOC with the nasty Carly affair! Hope, also, would've NEVER taken him back so quickly & abruptly when the affair ended. ALL of that was devastating & horribly written, BUT it was because of an agenda of those writers that failed (and part of that team, unfortunately, is still tptb). DAYS hit the bottom of the ratings for the first time ever at that time and to this day remains there. Disagree that Bo "deserved to be trashed" - he'd never gotten with another woman while Hope was alive until then. She was always believed dead with Billie and Carly the first time and stories played out (yes, he often put his exes first as part of his guilt because he knew how much they loved him, etc.) But it always came back to Bope as each others' true loves as it should've been and was played out fully & emotionally for the audience (VERY unlike the pathetic, hurried reunion after his Carly affair because those writers didn't want Bope anymore). Anyway, Aiden is okay although from what I saw the time I saw him just another pretty face - and I'm not concerned about him being Hope's new love if that gives her story, but to show respect to MANY viewers the writers definitely should close Bope out respectfully if for no other reason than for what they brought to the show over the years (the best couple ever with consistent high ratings - again, like them/him or not - just a fact)! I don't watch anymore because of the disrespect already shown but would love to come back to watch Hope move on & see how that goes IF they give them proper closure.
