(1) meri says:

Please pay Peter Rekell wht he deserves and keep Bo and Hope together!

August 30, 2012 at 6:50 pm
(2) Sarah says:

Goodby Bo. Can’t wait for you to be gone. Your acting has become so wooden, a stick would do a better job. If you want to leave, just go, why hang around. And please, no dragged out story like with Lexie. You really are not that essential to this show. Think about a pail of water. Stick your hand into it. The indentation it makes is how important you are.

August 30, 2012 at 7:07 pm
(3) Anne says:

Bo is an essential part of the show and has been for over 20 years…Anyone who says different is probably a young whippersnapper that has no clue what days is even about……I will miss him and hope he comes back soon….also i would like to see sami with RAFE and i said all along that gabi is PREGNANT with will’s baby.I KNEW it as soon as they hooked up that it would be in the story line

August 30, 2012 at 7:11 pm
(4) Sara says:

I love EJAMI and hope they finally get a good romance story! I also want Will and Gabi together!

August 30, 2012 at 7:16 pm
(5) Joel says:

I gave up caring about Bo & Hope since the came back from New Orleans. Never mind the death of Zack and some very weak story lines for them. Maybe then can use some of Peter’s salary to buy some food the every vanishing Kristian Alfonso. At times she looks so skinny I can see her bones under her makeup.

As for Stefano and Kristen I don’t want Kristen to get in between Marlena and John. Hell give Roman a chance for once. Kristen and Roman would be a great match. Maybe it’ll make Kate jealous and we’ll have some fun then.

(7) Dawn says:

I think Gabi is going to end up being pregnant..that’s the secret she and Will will share.

Also, I LOVE EJ and Sami together but like always, EJ will do something to piss her off and she will end up with Rafe or someone else. I hate when they put Sami and EJ together for like 2 episodes and then they break up! Please keep them together a little longer because they have chemistry like no other. STEAMY!!

August 30, 2012 at 8:45 pm
(8) Anne says:

I do hope this show isn’t trying to stall the Will and Sonny romance by throwing in a pregnancy. That was so predictable as if any fan could have written it. I am all for dram but not at the expense of staling a gay romance.

August 30, 2012 at 9:24 pm
(9) Cristy says:

Ok I so agree with Dawn it is high time they make Sami the bad girl she used to be & let her be with EJ I love there chemistry GO EJAMI!! Now about the Hope & Bo I will miss them becuz no matter what Bo & Hope have always been there after Marlena & John left after Jennifer & Jack left after kayla & Steve (patch) Kimberly & Shane left Bo & Hope were always there. I will so miss that I think they should pay BO (Petter Reckel ) what he deserves., what the heck is days with out Bo & Hope there were suppose to be the next Alice Horton & Tom Horton I think this is a huge mistake that is happening in Days.

August 31, 2012 at 8:45 am
(10) Voice of Reason says:

oooooh I smell a steamy affair with Brady & Kristen!!!

August 31, 2012 at 9:29 am
(11) Lou says:

oh Sami is going to be a grandmother. Bo you will missed. yea safe again

August 31, 2012 at 9:40 am
(12) Linda says:

Please stay BO….I’ve watched Days since I was 16 years old and I grew up with you guys…I’m now 65 years young. I’ve seen every plot imaginable…You and Hope were around my age when you first came to the show. Just would not be the same without you or Hope.

August 31, 2012 at 9:49 am
(13) Lou says:

oooooh Sami is going to be a grandmother

August 31, 2012 at 9:53 am
(14) sue says:

Lucas Lucas Lucas, more Lucas

August 31, 2012 at 9:54 am
(15) me says:

Lucas going to be a grandfather :)

August 31, 2012 at 11:38 am
(16) Dmitri says:

Yes! Scheming Nicole is back! I just hope she and Daniel can remain friends after.

August 31, 2012 at 12:16 pm
(17) Kevin says:

I always loved Sami! She is a hot MILF! Now she’ll be a hot GMILF!

August 31, 2012 at 2:36 pm
(18) Janelle says:

The closer we get to Bo’s departure from our screens, the worse I’m dealing with it.. :( I certainly hope Days comes to their senses and works to get Peter Reckell back SOON!! And with a GOOD STORY for Bo and Hope!!!!!! I’m really tired of these boring scripts they’ve been getting all-too-often lately!

August 31, 2012 at 3:41 pm
(19) samidimera says:

EJ plays dirty to get the upper hand? What a bunch of s*%#! EJ already has the upper hand over a loser like Rafe. And of course, whatever the hell it is EJ does, it’ll make Sami mad and she’ll go running to Carrie-loving Rafe. How annoying.

What will Lucas be doing, I wonder? I’d rather see Sami with Lucas than Rafe.

September 1, 2012 at 4:29 pm
(20) Farah says:

I agree they should pay Peter his required salalry. Bo and HOpe are integral to Days. They were supposed to be the next Alice and Tom. I am dreading his leaving more and more too.
As for Sami what a web she weaves for herself… I don’t know who I want her to be with. I do love the chemistry between her and EJ… I love the story of her and Rafe.. Sami and Lucas used to really love but it just is not there anymore..
Kristen and Brady EWWW old enough to be his MOTHER!
And yeah I so saw that Gabbi and Will thing coming and here comes the baby making Sami a Granny and Lucas a papaw LOL. Will they make it a threesome MOm and two Dads? or will Will realize it was just a phase and confusion over the crazy realationships he saw with Sami and her Men? That would confuse Ghandi!!!!!

September 3, 2012 at 3:56 am
(21) Ladybug in TN says:

Bo, I hope they will reconsider and give you what you need to stay on Days. Hope and you are to bring the stability to the show as the couple the teens come to hang out at their house as Sierra grows up. Family gatherings should be at your home like the Hortons.

Roman and Marlena need to be back together as a stable couple. Some of the original pairs need to reconnect and stay hitched for the show to survive.

We have lost Tom/Alice and Shawn/Caroline who were the families we saw together at Thanksgiving and all holidays. The teens were at their houses and Alice and Caroline were always the ones giving timely advice.

Take out the sex and leave it to our imaginations. I am tired of it. Soap Operas were not intended to be high class porn shows.
You are losing viewers. I left for a couple of years but have come back. From the first show this 66 year old has been here minus two years. I even bought a VCR when they first came out to tape it while I was at work!

I have lots more I could write but I will leave what I feel is the most important right now, other than the quick forgetfulness of the explosion and everything being normal again. I thought the town square had been destroyed.

Please keep Abe stable and not drinking like I had read.


September 3, 2012 at 4:51 pm
(22) CindyHaskins says:

I am a huge fan kristian alfonso.I have to say that i am getting so tired of people bashing kristian alfonso on her weight.

September 3, 2012 at 4:53 pm
(23) Gwen says:

I can’t wait for Sami to decide. Please let it be Rafe and Sami. They are incredible together.

September 3, 2012 at 4:53 pm
(24) Susan B. says:

Few things. WHY are they bringing Nick back? And, I am one of the few who will not be sobbing for Bo. I have watched this show for 40 years and if they want to go, let them. They had cushy jobs for years and see where aging idols wind up. I am tired of promiscuous Sami, hiding in the mommy roll. Nicole has more class. And they make the men look ridiculous, drooling over Sami. I am finding this show boring and more boring.

September 3, 2012 at 5:15 pm
(25) sue says:

I agree with Susan and ladybug. i have been watching since day one and I dont know what keeps this show on the air.It used to be about family now its all sex.Sami is a joke she goes from being in love with one guy and jumping in bed with another.let Peter go and take Kristian with him.They havent been a solid couple for a long time.John and Marlena are the Tom and Alice of Days and its time to reconize that.

September 3, 2012 at 7:11 pm
(26) Teresa says:

I think E.J. Should fight for Nicole they also have hot romance going on between them & I like Sami & Rafe together I think she should have another baby & let it be with Rafe he wants to be a daddy so bad, she already has kids with Lucas & E.J. Once the story line starts with Gabby being pregnant that’s when she will leave Salem once Cloe comes back maybe Lucas will try again with her or Brady but yea I think it’s funny Sami & Lucas is going to be GRANDPARENTS LOL. Keep them comming DAYS your doing good

September 3, 2012 at 8:27 pm
(27) vivienne says:

one: why can’t sami just be by herself for a bit? give herself time to get her head together and spend some time with her kids.
two: the bosses are giving peter the salary he is due, it just isn’t enough for him.
three: wonder how they are going to write bo off the show. maybe he can go look for his long, lost son and his wife.
four: please, please tell me–when is ej going to start ‘mayoring’? as far as i know, he hasn’t spent one single day running the city. we know he ran away from it, but i have never seen him in the head city chair. speaking of which, who IS running salem these days? not ej.

September 3, 2012 at 9:21 pm
(28) Lissa says:

Please drop the gay romance with Will. Ya can’t play on both teams but thank God for screen fast forward. Next they’ll make him a damn transvestite.

September 4, 2012 at 1:37 am
(29) carrie says:

oh no i dont want peter or lisa to go. please come back someday very soon peter and lisa. you will be miss by all your fans both of you. what will hope do with out bo.

September 4, 2012 at 7:40 am
(30) Lumi4eva says:

I don’t like Sami & Ej together because Sami is always trying to make Ej “good”. I don’t like Sami & Rafe together because he’s always trying to make Sami “good”. Ej & Nicole are a perfect match. They get each other, they support each other & accept each other for who they really are. Sami & Lucas are a perfect match for all of the same reasons. I find it beyond ridiculous that they brought Lucas back & put him & Sami back together for all of 2 seconds & now it’s all about Ej. Furthermore, it was not one month ago that Ej was determined to win Nicole back & spend the rest of his life with her & now he wants Sami again. Pffft!

September 4, 2012 at 8:45 am
(31) dlee says:

I , too, hope that they pay Peter what he needs to stay. He is a gifted actor and Bo and Hope are an integral part of Days. Anyone who thinks his acting is “wooden” needs to learn the meaning of the word subtle. He is so poignant, and his acting is filled with subtle nuances that are so natural , you don;t even realize that he is acting. He can say so much more than most of the others with a smile, a twinkle in his eye, even a heartfelt “man hug” (Bo to Abe scene in the graden when Lexie died). He deserves so much better and anyone who thinks is acting is wooden should check their own ticker for splinters. lol. God bless, and please , let Sami show a little sense this time and stay with Rafe instead of slutting around with EJ and Lucas. But give Lucas an actual storyline. Tx

September 4, 2012 at 11:36 am
(32) Janelle says:

dlee, I totally, totally agree! The only other thing I can think of is maybe some people are confusing “complete lack of story material” with “lack of acting ability”? Even the best actors can only do so much with a lousy or virtually non-existent script…

September 4, 2012 at 12:10 pm
(33) RICHARD says:

During my youth years I would often stay home from school,mostly from bullying and other issues.I was drawn to Days from the David and Valerie storyline then Bo became my favorite.
Days have almost gone completely away from those storyline years and now that Bo is going there will almost no reason for me to watch anymore.
Very sad.
Maybe Mr Reckell will join the Young and the Restless and reunite with Stephen nichols
God bless you Peter Reckell

September 4, 2012 at 1:01 pm
(34) groundhoggirl says:

I don’t think Peter is leaving over money. In the interview I read with him in Soap Opera Digest, he indicated that for more than any reason, he’s leaving due to lack of story line. He acknowledges without complaint, that the new DAYS generation is taking over, just like he and Kristen did back in the 80′s. It’s just their turn. I would imagine that if the PTB sweetened the salary pot, he might have considered staying with so little storyline. But budget constraints do not allow for that. Also, he’s 57 years old with a 5 year old daughter with whom he’s dying to spend more time. Not being a spring chicken anymore, I can understand his desire for that. According to him, he, Kelly and offspring are off to points all over the globe for the next year. I also read in the latest SOD that he might be a candidate to replace Ronn Moss’ character of Ridge Forrester on B&B. Who knows, if the Bell family waves enough money at him, the Reckel family just migth cancel that little trip around the globe. Only time will tell.

September 4, 2012 at 1:36 pm
(35) coop says:

Keep it going with EJ and Sami. They have too much chemistry together. I don’t like her with Rafe and especially Lucas (never liked him, he has no acting skills)

September 5, 2012 at 7:27 am
(36) Linda says:

I agree with Gwen and others………… Sami and Rafe. No more stupid games, time she settled down with the clan she has. She and Rafe share true romance and love not the teen puppy love, teasing and games she shares with EJ, enough. EJ and Nicole are perfect!!… Thanks.

September 5, 2012 at 9:57 pm
(37) Sandra says:

nd then Jennifer and Daniel can find their way back to each other. Yes!!

September 6, 2012 at 11:17 am
(38) Pam says:

I just have to sound off on a few issues I like many have watched DOOL ever since I can rememberI have seen many changes over the years not always favorable ad far ad I’m concerned. But you get used to the changes and move o.of course everybody including me has s right to an opinion I think their making to many changes at once. But here’s my opinion on a few things……I wanna see Sami and Rafe back together and to grow old together I love the Sami character.bit they do need to get her with somebody and let her be happy. My second thing is Brady poor Brady the guy never gets a break romantically. I to will miss Peter and Molly but from what I understand they are both leaving of their own accord. My last thing is I have been a DOOL for many years and will be till the end

September 6, 2012 at 1:47 pm
(39) Kristy says:

Bo will be back! EJ and Sami belong TOGETHER! No question! Her and Rafe are boring. I love Lucas and was all for them getting back together but She and EJ have something special. GO EJAMI!

September 7, 2012 at 12:03 am
(40) Dmitri says:

Honestly, this “battle” for Sami’s heart isn’t much of a fight. Even EJami fans know that Sami has only ever really loved Rafe (and also Lucas, but that’s different, I’ll get to that later). EJ and Nicole are the perfect match. They are on fire together, and love each other more than they have loved anyone else. They have both a love that consumes them and that perfect family life and pure love that they both want. Sami wants that perfect family life. She has made it VERY clear that she wants Rafe more than she has wanted anyone. As for Lucas, I really do love Lumi, as much as I love Safe, but for different reasons. I think he’ll come back into the picture for Sami. Sami and Rafe have a pure love that is based on family values that Sami has always wanted. They are cute, but don’t have as much chemistry as people would like (though I’m satisfied by it!). Lumi have more passion, more history, and are still a great family when together. Either way, I’ll be happy. I’ll admit, though, that if Carrie returns, I want Cafe and Lumi!

September 7, 2012 at 12:07 am
(41) Dmitri says:

I think the “battle” for Sami’s heart isn’t much of a fight. Even EJami fans admit that Rafe has Sami’s heart. Why would she be so jealous of Rafe and Nicole having a child? Sami has only ever truly loved two men: Lucas and Rafe. I think she loves both equally, but for different reasons. Both are great family men. I’ll say that while Safe has chemistry, Lumi has even more. Lumi has much more passion, fire and history in their relationship. He challenges her, and she challenges him too. As for Rafe, their love is pure and everything that Sami has wanted. They change each other: Sami is a better person with Rafe, and Rafe is more confident when with Sami. I hope EJole reunite. They love each other more than they have loved anyone else, and they accept each other.

September 9, 2012 at 2:44 pm
(42) Merc says:

Hope the writers give Ejami a chance this time , sick of Rafe screwing things up all the time . What do TPTB see in that character???

September 9, 2012 at 4:13 pm
(43) shirley53 says:

I love the chemistry between Ej and Sami they deserve a true love story. their both grey. Rafe and Lucas suck the life out of Sami.

One of the writers is good friends with GG so we will get boring Rafe alot. I just don’t know why he cannot get his own s/l away from Sami and Ej

September 10, 2012 at 12:35 pm
(44) sherrie says:

Please get Jenifer and Daniel back together and put a little extra color to Jenifer. They are so sweet together). Rafe and Sami all the way, EJ needs someone Nicole! Brady of course hands down either abigail or Chloe.

September 10, 2012 at 2:25 pm
(45) donna dawe says:

I am going to miss Bo a lot.Why are they letting him walk? Also i want sami with rafe, anyone who wants her with ej must have scrambbled brains!

September 10, 2012 at 2:32 pm
(46) Claire says:

I want bo to stay forever. Hope is so beautiful. They should have another baby.

September 10, 2012 at 10:44 pm
(47) Johnathan says:


September 11, 2012 at 7:39 pm
(48) Molly Monique says:

I hate to see Bo go just because all of the Brady characters are leaving…I am glad to see Nick back…I also like the pairing of Daniel and Nicole. Can’t wait to see what happens next…

September 11, 2012 at 8:07 pm
(49) Vonda says:

Please find a way for Bo (Peter) to stay on Days!!! Bo is the heart of Salem!!! It will never be the same without him!!! There are two people that I can’t be without on Days…That is Bo and Stefeno…Everyone I know feels the same!!! Bo please, please, please stay!!!

September 12, 2012 at 3:27 pm
(50) #daysfan says:

@Jonathan,angry much? Will and Sonny will probably not be together. No one ever stays together. I hope Kristen doesn’t try and break up John and Marlena. Just let some couples be happy. There isn’t drama, kids and deception in someones everyday life.

September 14, 2012 at 3:38 am
(51) Terry Sawyer says:

Every wеeκend i used tο go to ѕee thiѕ website, becauѕe i wish fоr
enjoyment, sіncе this this web sіte conаtiοnѕ gеnuіnelу plеasаnt funny information too.

September 17, 2012 at 12:09 am
(52) Beth ann says:

I think that Bo and Hope need to stay together,and Belle,Shawn and Claire should come back to Salem. John and Marlana need to stay together until the show ends. I would like to see Mimi come back. THE STORY LINE IS FINE JUST CUT OUT THE SEX we all know that people have their intimate times we don’t to see that theirs enough porn in the world today KEEP IT– PURE !!! I love dool i have watched it close to fifty yrs.

September 17, 2012 at 9:36 pm
(53) michele says:

could it be possable what will got gabi pregant? new love story?

September 18, 2012 at 8:06 pm
(54) Days fan says:

Gabby is pregnant. It that has to be the only secret they share. If it ever got out that they slept together recently they could always cover it up because they were once a couple and it’s not the first time they have slept together. I’m starting to hate Melanie and Jennifer. I can’t stand Nicole these days either and I despise Gabby.

September 18, 2012 at 10:21 pm

September 19, 2012 at 9:37 am
(56) James says:

Peter left on his own accord to spend more time with his family so I say good for him. I have watched Days for 15 years and I have to say I have stuck out the bad stoylines and the ever changing coming and going’s of our favorite cast members. Lexie was my favorite so it could have been really easy to stop watching when she died this year but there is so much that keeps me hooked on Days. Things change and we have to accept that. I say ROCK ON DAYS!!! Love the new storyline with Will and Sonny!!!! Marlena and John are amazing and looking forward to Kristen’s return.

October 5, 2012 at 12:35 am

October 26, 2012 at 2:49 pm
(58) JR says:

Gabi is Pregnant, we all knew that was happening! however did you all know she is going to tell Nick the baby is his? Also Will will become jealous of Nick, and feel guilt over his one nighter with Gabi…. Will will kept their secret or does Sonny find out. Nick will be excited at 1 st to think he is a father but he is NO dummy he will figure it out on his own about Gabi and Will! I think he will go along as the fool until something else grabs his Attention! Maybe Melanie should come home and reclaim him…. Hmmmmm

November 16, 2012 at 11:43 pm
(59) raines says:

I too have watched fool since Bo and Hope were teenagers and I am going to miss him! I too am also a Sami and EJ fan! I truly believe these two were made for each other and I love the fact that Stefano can’t stand her because he can’t manipulate or intimidate her like he does most other women on the show! With EJ and Sami writers for the show will always have good material. They both can be very good and very bad plus they have great romantic scenes together!
