My problem w/Bo and Hope is, aside from the old and tiresome storyline, there seems to be little progression. It’s just caught in a holding pattern and no real effort on either party to resolve. Have they ever been to counseling? That might at least be somewhat interesting. Or will it be that once Hope discovers Carly’s secret it will be instant fix? (unless of course she insists on believing the child is Bo’s).December 21, 2009 at 4:44 pm #8647
Carly, go away, Hope, grow upDecember 21, 2009 at 5:04 pm #8648GoodyParticipant
Grockie, you expressed my feelings exactly! I have absolutely no interest in Carly and her story.

I was going to say Hope’s and idiot, but now that I think about it, the writer’s are idiots. This is the one storyline viewers are sick of. Can’t they think of something better to do with Bo and Hope? Is the only thing the writers can come up with for them is to constantly split them up. Come on! They don’t have a foot in the grave, they are a vibrant, talented couple of actors who deserve a decent story, not this BS.December 21, 2009 at 10:30 pm #8655caseyParticipant
Today was a low watermark w/Carly admitting she was still in love w/Bo. That I can understand, but if Bo reciprocates I have no respect for the guy. My problem is he doesn’t appear to have any drive/passion to rekindle his marriage. This ho-hum attitude for Days’ once high profile, rock solid pair is unacceptable to me.
And Carly is pretty scummy too, for outing her feelings right in Bo and Hope’s living room. She should butt out until and if Bo and Hope really do split.
And Hope should fire up and reclaim her territory.December 21, 2009 at 10:38 pm #8656Bos MomParticipant
Apparently there are only about 4 storylines. Rape, kidnapping the other man/woman comas, thinking someone is dead–any more? but to do this to bo and Hope is beyond disgusting. Some seem to think the powers that be do read the forums. so let’s keep this up. there are newbies who actually are cheering for bo and carly. I hated it 20 yrs ago and I still hate!!December 22, 2009 at 1:16 am #8659DeeLanParticipant
They do have another storyline they’ve used over and over…..Whe’s the Daddy?December 22, 2009 at 2:56 am #866153tdogsParticipant
Sooooooooooo agree with ya Casey! I don’t think the writer’s do SL’s of absolutely true love anymore…John and Marlena, Bo and Hope, Patch and Kayla, Maggie and Micky, Caroline and Sean, Mrs. and Mr. Horton…they all had their obstacals and overcame them.
I think most of us root for true love with our favorite couples on "Days" because statistically – with today’s depressing headlines in the news – it’s 50% or more of marriages end in divorce. It is nice to have the continuity and stability shown on t.v. of true and lasting love. And – Bo and Hope are the LAST forever long term couple – this is I think what makes us all mad.
I know it’s easier on the writer’s to write something about a breakup and trauma of a couple than write about a love that lasts (can’t get ratings that way). If they would just leave us one super couple…that would be a great Christmas present from the show.
Carley is 100% stupid and wrong at being portrayed this way. I like Carley because I can remember her from "the old Days" – pair her up with someone else – not Bo! And have Hope get a clue as to what she’s got! What is that old song say? "…you never know what you got until it’s gone…" She’d better wake up and smell the coffee at JAVA!December 22, 2009 at 12:07 pm #8675June66watcherParticipant
when I heard Bo utter ‘princess’ to Carly yesterday! OMG — please tell me that doesn’t spell tragedy for Bo & Hope. I’m willing to wait for Doug to ‘give his little girl a talking to’ so that Hope starts seeing clear, the road she’s got herself on. I’m hoping this Carly thing is just simple appreciation (not love). Let Carly try out for the chief of staff position or something else in the hospital — heck let her get involved in cutting edge medical care and recovery rather than destruction of Bo’s life.December 22, 2009 at 2:53 pm #8681IzzyBParticipant
This whole Storyline starts with Hope being an IDIOT! If Hope would take Bo back, there would be no issue with Carly. Bo would not feel neglected, left out of his own life (with Hope and Ciara), defeated, and rejected. Hope talks about feeling rejected when Bo didn’t want her to move in for her own safety, but look at what she is going to Bo now. I mean seriously, the only thing that will save their marriage is if Bo tells Hope this secret? Which what is the big deal? He has already told her multiple times this secret is not his to tell, it does not involve him, and it does not involve Hope. So my personal opinion is Hope has no right to ask Bo (a guy with integrety which is a quality she loves) to tell her this secret. If a friend told me a secret and told me to tell no one including my husband, I would not tell him. Plain and simple.
I understand this is a past lover, but at the time Bo thought Hope was dead. If he cheated on Hope to be with Carly, I could see Hope’s issues. But he didn’t, so this to me is like a past girlfriend before they were ever together. I have boyfriends from my past that I talk to from time to time and my husband doesn’t care. He knows that we broke up for a reason and there is nothing to be jealous about. Heck, my one ex came to my wedding and we went to his wedding. My ex and I learned we were better friends than we were ever boyfriend/girlfriend.
This SL drives me insane and personally until Hope has a major attitude change, I don’t blame Bo for any of this actions. He is hurt and feels very low right now. You can see he is frustrated and just going through the motions these days, because he doesn’t have a clue of what he did wrong or why he no longer has his family. Men who feel that way can do odd and strange things. Now on that note, if he jumps into bed with Carly, well then, that is a different story. Then he would become the idiot of this relationship. Until Hope says she wants a divorce and an official seperation, he has no right jumping into any other woman’s bed.
BTW, I loved Carly and Bo as a couple, but I see NO chemistry there now.December 22, 2009 at 4:16 pm #8687December 22, 2009 at 4:43 pm #8688maryanneParticipant
There’s no way I would stand by and watch another woman make a move on my man! I’d move back in and show Carly that he is mine. Hope’s actions are pushing Bo to Carly. Wise up, Hope!–silly writing!December 22, 2009 at 9:47 pm #8701drea4713Participant
I know I’m in the minority, but I am okay with Carly and Bo together. I am sick of Hope’s self righteous attitude with Bo, throwing out demands and expecting him to just take it. She is getting exactly what she deserves for her behavior following Ciara’s kidnapping. JMHODecember 22, 2009 at 11:11 pm #8708SWParticipant
to her real name and title? Princess Katerina Von Loishner (sp?). Carly Manning is a name she made up to get away from Lawrence years ago. Francois Von Loishner (aka Frankie Brady) is her real brother. Katerina was royalty. Lawrence’s father and her father had some contract of marriage written up for them and she didn’t like it.December 23, 2009 at 2:42 am #8720IzzyBParticipant
Hope is being difficult. I have said before, whatever happens with Bo and Hope is her fault. She has acted unreasonable from the beginning of the kidnapping until now.
I still would rather have Bo and Hope come back together and Carly to move on with someone else though.
