I think he is gone. Tomlin seems to prefer those underwear models. I think the strong armed him into not renewing his contract. After all the buzz and negative flack for the other firings, I think the could not out-and-out fire him, but set it up so it looks like it is his decision.The show will have three females in mid-40s and older, and no men except the perverted, scummy looking Dan. And with hints that Kayla and Steve are kaput, three of the four supercouples will be broken up.
There are more than 4 supercouples.
In both cases Peter is smart to answer your question Diva.The problem here is not the 'supercouple' issue, people have to get over it, this supercouple obsession doesn't do any favors to characters, they got stale, they have no storylines, they become boring.The real problem is the fact that Bo the character is quite indispensable to this show..nobody can replace him, a leading man with so much ties, history and rich dynamics in his age bracket..well he is the only one..and these writers are not able to write good new characters to fill the hole..Good for Peter, after all he is not Bo Brady he has a life to live out of this little soap world..but it screams disaster for Days of Our Lives the soap opera..just watch..
This show is going to end soon. I think they better get rid of Gary Tomlin soon and let Lorrain Brodwick take over. I really think that Daniel and Rafe are not popular at all both them are not that good looking either. I really think they need to bring popular vet back and that is Matthew Ashford is much needed as Jack Deveraux he has more storyline potential than those two idiots on the show. I do not care if Daniel is with Jennifer he can have her but I really think that Hope and Jack can be good for each other because Hope is too good for Rafe, Jack is way more interesting and he needs challenge women, Jennifer does not cut anymore she cannot offer Jack that she is dull and boring she deserves Daniel in bad way now. I really think they should test Hope and Jack out I think that Matthew Ashford and Kristina Alfonso are good actors and if Peter Recklec is leaving the show in November what better way to bring Matthew Ashford back (Jack he finds Jennifer with Daniel he moves on without her and Hope lost Bo so they can comfort each other, we can also have Billie/Jack/Hope love triangle. Jack is way more better compare to Daniel and Rafe and put Jack back into suits again even mind seeing him shirtless too he looks much better shirtless than Daniel the loser. Jennifer can have daniel leave the show. Jack needs Horton he can pair up with Hope let Jennifer turn green with envy. We will miss Peter Recklec but he did the right thing.
It is Peter Reckell !And it is a post about Peter Reckell aka Bo Brady not Jack Deveraux/Matt Ashford (although i like Matt/Jack but stop with this trolling).
They need to bring back Carrie and Austin, too.
They need Jack/Matthew Ashford he is also leading male actor and popular with Bo gone I think that Jack and Hope might need each other after losing Jennifer and BO. Jack and Hope are most popular characters on that show and if Jennifer does not get her act together she may lose Jack to her cousin that would be interesting to see. Jennifer/Jack/Hope love triangle better than fighting over Daniel he is not prize at all more like loser to me. Jack has plenty of storylines as well and family in town too he can create his own drama without Jennifer around.
But no more goofy Jack I want Jack serious and charming hot and sexy I think he and Hope will be good for each other what better way to torment Jennifer while she is stuck with Daniel.
If Peter is leaving it will leave a big hole at Days. I, like many others, started watching when Bo arrived in Salem on his motorcycle and swept Hope off her feet. I think he was the first daytime soap character to really appeal to the teenage/ early twenties age group. I'm really sad to see him go but the writing's been on the wall for a while.
I don't mind this. Peter left before and I really enjoyed Robert Kelker-Kelly in the role. Bo and Hope were one of my favourite couples from 1995-2000, but then they lost their sparkle.Hopefully with Bo leaving, they can afford to bring back Jack, Carrie, and Austin.
BUT but but..what about your so called 'supercouples' you can't live without ??!!! Come on...lmaoBo is needed because the character is indispensable to this show.
Bo and Hope are absolutely a supercouple and never STOPPED being a supercouple. After 2000, I fell back in love with Jack/Jennifer and John/Marlena, and Bo/Hope fell to the wayside. Bo is needed because he is Hope's soulmate.
Disagree : Bo is needed because he is a good character who can drive a story, comes from a core Days family and has interesting dynamics with lot's of important characters.Bo is needed for BO ! His story with Hope yes is important but it is not everything about this character at all !
And I disagree with you. Bo and Hope are a package deal, just like John/Marlena, Carrie/Austin, Jack/Jennifer, etc. I am interested in supercouples, not individuals.
Agree to disagree : no problem for me AT ALL.
Bo is one of few characters who have never been presumed dead (not counting last month's ridiculous safehouse explosion), so I wouldn't be surprised if Bo is "killed off" like Patch, Roman, Marlena, John, etc. He can always return from the dead in the series finale to reunite with Hope. Another option: Bo goes into a coma (although I think this is how they are writing out Jack).As for Hope, I don't want them to rush her into a new romance. I would like to see Hope explored as a widow and actually have her deal with her grief and loss. If Bo is "killed off", I expect Jason Cook to return as Shawn for a little while.Days really needs to bring back Wayne Northrop as Roman to "ground" the Brady family. Josh Taylor ain't cuttin' it and has never really cut it as Roman. They should even consider bringing Kimberly back on a semi-permanent basis like Kayla.
Instead of MARS NEEDS WOMEN, Venus needs men. There is talk that SID is saying ED is coming to DAYS. So what is that, how man women in the 45-60 bracket, Marlena, Kate, Hope, Kayla, Jennifer, Billie and maybe Kristen. Yet in the same bracket for men there is Roman (barely on), Dan hated by large number of viewers, and Abe (not a main squad player).
don't forget Tomlin toy boy : latino Rafe !
Opps, my bad forgot WhoeverTheHellHeIsThisWeek, aka John. Though I would hope that with J/J, B/H and S/K broken up that ONE supercouple is together. Sorry folks I do not consider Justin/Adrienne, though a great couple, to be part of the supercouple pantheon, supercouples were the main focus of the show at the time they were couples, and the show pretty much centered around them.
Hopefully, this will not affect Carrie and Austin's return.
Sad to think of days without Bo. i think peter reckell is a fine understated actor with so many rich ties to the history of the show. If the powers that be think that the EJ/sami show wioll bring in hordes of viewers as a redux of the epic love story of dannifer ,(Blech), then so be it. i can't remember the last time i watched an entire episode.
Ej/Sami show ? Please TPTB NEVER ever gave them a chance so try another target it is not credible.
Umm, they have been shoving EJ and his rape victim down our throats ever since EJ came onto the show!
Euh i don't think so they never write for them to be together, on the other hand they wrote stories around each of these characters because they can drive stories, are interesting, have interesting dynamics with lot's of other core characters? come from core families, are themselves core characters and are played by some of the most charismatic actors on this soap.p.s: we can agree to disagree on this 'rape' debate, it is tiring Alistair.
It's not a debate, hun. EJ raped Sami. End of story.MarDar have been pushing EJ/Sami as a couple for the past 6-7 months, just like Higley and Sheffer did throughout their run, even though everyone knows Sami belongs with Lucas.
It is just not true : MarDar have been pushing Ej/Nicole as a couple for the past 10 months, Highley did the same with some Taylor option for good measure..and guess what it was big failures ! As for Sami; writers like Highley and Tomlin have been pushing Sami/Rafe as a couple for the past 3 years or more and right now since he came back MarDar have been pushing for Sami/Lucas as a couple..therefore writers NEVER EVER EVER gave a chance for Ej/Sami as a couple, it is almost offensive to lie and to say otherwise Alistair !p.s: for the 'rape' issue YES it is A DEBATE, and yes i disagree about it with you. End of story.
And 6-7 months ago Ej and Sami did not even share screen time together ! You are so not credible Alistair, it is pathetic.
Nope, it's been EJami nonsense for months and months now. And he did rape her---it occurred ONSCREEN. We saw him do it. There is no debate. You're just a rape denialist.
Hey first calm down, i saw the scenes on screen and i don't have the same opinion about it than you, leave it at that and move on and secondly i already said i don't want to enter in a debate about it, it was done for years and years and i am not interested, get it Alistair ?!And i stand by what i said : they never gave this pairing a freaking CHANCE, it is what it is, deal with it. There is no Ejami non sense at all with Ej begging and being a pathetic mess towards Nicole and Sami hooking up out of the blue with old Lucas.
I don't need to "calm down". I'm already calm. I don't care what you're interested in. It was rape and if you can't see that, then you're a rapist defender. Sami belongs with Lucas who isn't old at all. He's the same age as Sami. LUMI are soulmates and a supercouple. Deal with it.
Lucas is OLDER than Sami, they are 'soulmate' and a 'supercouple' in your mind, it is a matter of opinion. If you think i am a 'rapist defender'..well whatever makes you feel better..you really think i care seriously ?! lmao, i know what i am and that is the important thing..i will not continue to argue about some fiction with you, it is ridiculous and not worth it..DEAL WITH IT. End of story.
No it's not a matter of opinion. The show has confirmed on numerous occasions and in numerous ways that Sami and Lucas are soulmates. Also, the characters are indeed the same age. You clearly haven't watched the show as long as I have or you'd know that. The actor who plays Lucas is older than the actor who plays Sami, but the characters are the same age. I have no idea why you're so contentious and why you can't just accept that you are wrong on this. It's pretty sad. Glad I don't know you in real life---I would have slapped you upside the head a looooong time ago!
Me too i am really happy to NOT know you, on that we can agree. On this 'nice' note goodbye Alistair, 'au plaisir'..NOT lol.
Moreover without them lot's of (less dynamic and important characters yep it is what it is) would not have ANY stories, time to wake up.
