What could be better than Bo coming home to Salem and Hope and Ciarra? Bo Brady, played by the much missed Peter Reckell has been missing for almost eighteen months, presumably on a top secret assignment.

In truth DOOL decided yo back burner Bo and Hope, the heart and soul of Days and after too much new generation Salemites Peter decided: “I took my place in the hierarchy of the show, in the storyline, moving others aside, in the [1980s]. Now others have moved into the place I once held,” Reckell said at the time. “I have been very fortunate to have had such a long, meaningful, run. But now, with a torn heart, I have to say goodbye to the people, family, the character, that I love.”

Now after much pleading from the fans for Bo to return je took to Twitter to respond.

“Going back to DAYS, I don’t think that will ever happen as a long term commitment,” Reckell wrote to fans. “Going back to close out Bo’s story in a respectful way??? I would do that for you. You deserve better then what they have done to Bo. You have been very faithful and dedicated for years, decades!”

Peter has not been keeping up with DAYS since he left and so has no idea how they would write him out..

“Not sure what kind of story line could happen, I haven’t watched the show. You would have better ideas,” Reckel added. “Time to contact the show.”

Would it hurt too much to see Peter Reckell back for a short time or would you just be happy to see him for whatever time he was given?
