Bumpy start.

In this week’s Throwback Thursday poll, Soaps.com takes readers back to 1985 when Steve ‘Patch’ Johnson first came to Salem…

Steve has currently returned to life in the ISA, but back then, Patch arrived in Salem as Victor Kiriakis’ employee. His assignment was to retrieve some film from Kimberly Brady. Pete and Melissa Janning wound up with the film and went on the run. Bo, Hope, Shane, Kimberly, and Victor all found themselves in Miami as a result. Shane got evidence against Victor and both he and Steve ended up being placed under arrest afterward. Luckily for them, Victor was able to blackmail Larry Welch, who took the fall for the crimes so they went free.

Previous to all of this, Steve and Bo had been friends who became rivals over a woman named Britt. Bo was the one who caused Steve to lose his eye when they got in a knife fight over her. Do you remember how Steve and Bo met?
