I thought it was remiss not to include Shawn in this episode - he could easily have been in the scenes with Caroline and Ciara. I feel like Chelsea had a more emotional goodbye with Bo and she wasn't even onscreen.

Kayla said that Bo was her baby brother. I always thought she was the youngest sibling. What is the age order of the Bradys?

Huh? Why? beside one quick mention on Thursday show, she's been virtually irrelevant to Bo's return

Perfection, Toups, besides for that JimReillyJr stamp ;) Thank you.

 

Vee, as much as I enjoy them together, they got to stop making death mean nothing on this show. It's weird, though, the show has a lot of us wishing for more even though they did a helluva lot mess in 24 hours. I wish they had done the story different (sans kidnapping and crazy Aidan) and given them more time (Thanksgiving, maybe Christmas too) before this part came, definitely.

It's too late for that, IMO. Too many times where it didn't matter. Even in these deaths that are supposed to "stick," they mean nothing, because other than some tears from Lucas, Will's death was an afterthought - Sami cared more about EJ than about her son dying. Bo's death is also an afterthought due to coming right after Aidan and being so rushed. We saw this with Jack too - I'm not sure how many people cared, or felt for his family, even if his last death was going to stick.

 

They should just start avoiding death as often as possible in the scripts, to make the few times it's used have an impact.

Pretty much but I thought the one-sided phone conversation they had was more emotional than anything Bo said to Shawn

when was the one sided phone convo? I must have missed it. Do you know what day and if it was in the beginning, middle or end of the show?

I guess I'm easier to please. I liked the episode. I cared and I was a mess so for me, they did their job. I guess Shawn could have been included instead of Ciara but they're pimping her at the moment. I'm glad they included Caroline.

 

To me it felt like the characters remembering and talking about Bo was their goodbye to him. I thought it was well done.

 

The timline however is just the worst ever.

 

And I think Lexie and Bo's deaths are sticking and Corday swears up and down the California coast that death will stick now.

 

LMAO.  Yeah. Bo will be back on his bike to usher Hope off if the show were cancelled. And I don't believe they wouldn't bring Jack back either. So no, I don't think death will stick anymore than it used to.

 

I'm enjoying the show as a whole but I'm also not all that crazy about a lot of things either. I definitely see a mix of Griffith and Higley, which isn't bad but the pacing isn't very good.

Well, either Bo will come roaring back to life, or we'll meet his long-lost twin brother, Moe.  Either way, though, this ain't the last we have seen of PR on this show.

 Thanks! :)   I might do another montage if we get more flashbacks during the funeral.

You think we'll get a funeral? They might want to fit it in the 24 hour window and just come back one scene later and say it was done.

 

Bo and Shawn Douglas were really underplayed,. He was the first born. This was the most underplayed of the relationships. I agree with the person who said Bo got more quality time in terms of dialogue with Chelsea in a 40 second phone call. B/H/S/K were close friends, but they could have easily replaced S/K with Doug/Julie/Shawn in this episode or at the least added them to the scenes (as long as Julie didn't joke lightly about trips where close family were "killed" in rather horrific ways).

 

I had almost forgotten Brian Frons was once responsible for and I guess capable of running a very successful daytime network. This is from Ken Corday picking his three favorite DAYS moments for TV Guide earlier this year. That said, Frons became President of NBC Daytime in 1983, I wonder what he was doing mulling over a cover that came out in 1979.

 

Bo and Hope's Wedding (1985) "It was the classic bad boy-good girl, starcrossed-lovers story," says Corday. "Bo was just so rough and awful when he came to town and Hope [Kristian Alfonso] was the well-scrubbed girl with the picket fence. The actors weren't much different than their characters. [Laughs] Oooh, that's a dangerous quote! I remember Brian Frons [then NBC Daytime chief] telling me, 'You have to test this girl, Kristian Alfonso! She's on the cover of Seventeen magazine and she's drop-dead gorgeous!' And the rest is history. The Bo and Hope wedding was magical—so sweet, honest, perfect. Incredible moment!"

I think we're more likely to see GhostBo than anything, if PR deigns to appear again. I truly don't think he wants to be or will be back full-time -- that's the only reason Bo is dying. I could see some cutesy reappearance in the series finale, but I really do think Bo, Lexie, and probably Jack are dead for good.

I hope we get one.  Paige even got one.  Bo was probably the show's greatest hero. He's gotta get something.  I agree that Bo/Shawn-D were underplayed.  So a rush job.
