Setting Sail on the Fancy Face
Weeks after their son Shawn’s birth, Bo and Hope decided to leave Salem and set sail on a trip around the world. As they boarded the Fancy Face to begin their journey, Steve and Kayla arrived to say their final goodbyes. Steve helped Bo untie the ship’s lines from the dock. Then, Bo and Hope were off. As Shawn slept in his bassinet, Bo and Hope cuddled and took turns at the ship’s helm ready to embark on their future together.

Hope Opens the Puzzle Box
After “Gina” opened the puzzle box, a feat that only Tom and Hope had known how to do, she announced, “I know who I am now. There’s no doubt in my mind anymore. I’m Hope. I am your wife Bo.” Bo remained skeptical, until Alice found a letter inside the box, a letter Hope had written to him on their wedding day. As Bo read it aloud, Hope suddenly began reciting the words herself. Afterwards, Hope told Shawn that she was his mother, and she, Bo and their son embraced. The Brady family was back together like they belonged.

A Christmas Eve Wedding
Getting to the altar was an adventure for Bo and Hope this time around. While Bo shot hoops with Shawn before the ceremony, Hope headed to the church in a limousine with Julie and Jennifer and proceeded to splatter ketchup on her face and wedding gown after a stop at Burger Barn. Thanks to some crafty stain removal techniques and a few hair and makeup tricks, Hope was transformed back into beautiful bride mode, and Doug walked her down the aisle. Bo recounted how he and Hope had been down a bumpy road and lost their way, “but the important thing is we always found our way back to each other, back to a life of love, friendship and family. My gift to you today is to tell you in front of everybody we care about that my love for you is deeper and more powerful than it ever was.” Hope, in turn, told Bo, “I realize that loving you has made me more able to love, more willing to give, and so incredibly grateful to spend all the days of my life loving you and our children.”

Bo Learns Zack Is His Son
On the day of Zack's christening, Bo and Hope eagerly awaited news of DNA tests they’d had taken on the toddler. Although Hope had originally insisted there was no way Bo could have been the boy’s father, she began having memories of a mystery man she spent time with in Paris. In time, she realized that man was her beloved husband. Bo and Hope got the test results moments before the ceremony was about to begin and shared them with their family and friends. “Our family has truly been given a miracle today. Bo is Zack’s father. His biological father,” announced Hope. Bo happily confirmed the news. “This little guy is mine. I’m his pop.”

Ciara Is Born
When Hope discovered she was pregnant again, she thought Patrick Lockhart might be the father, and paternity tests “proved” she was right. Little did she know Patrick had tampered with the results. Nevertheless, Bo and Hope reconciled and grew closer, causing a desperate Patrick to kidnap Hope. He took Hope to an abandoned warehouse and planned to leave town with her. Hope, however, went into labor just as Bo tracked her down and helped her deliver a beautiful baby girl. Patrick ‘fessed up that Ciara was actually Bo’s child, and, once again, Bo and Hope celebrated a miracle.
