Wednesday brings a unique and emotional episode of Days of Our Lives. Spoilers detail that this one will be focused entirely on Hope as she tries to sort through all of the heavy emotions she has been feeling since Aiden’s shocking return. What can fans expect from the July 8 show?
As We Love Soaps shares, Hope will be reflecting on her past as she tries to cope with her current situation. Peter Reckell will be back as Bo, but Days of Our Lives spoilers share that there will be other big guest appearances as well.
Actress Kristian Alfonso, who plays Hope, talked with TVLine about this special episode. It seems that much like the Aiden-centric episode that was aired upon Daniel Cosgrove’s return recently, this next show will be all about Hope and her storyline, setting aside other Salem antics for the day. Alfonso says that Hope will head to the Horton cabin by herself to get a bit of solitude and try to sort through all that has been happening.
Peter Reckell returned to Days of Our Lives last fall, but sadly, his return was simply to facilitate a solid ending for the Bo and Hope romance. Bo killed faux-Aiden after Hope’s attack, and a short time later, Bo himself died after a stunning and swiftly-moving illness. Now, however, Bo is back as a vision for Hope as she spends some quiet time at the cabin.
Alfonso teases Days of Our Lives spoilers that this will be an emotional segment as it gives Bo and Hope one more opportunity to hold one another. Wednesday’s show also brings back Joseph Mascolo as Stefano DiMera and Andrew Masset even returns as Larry Welch.
Teasers have noted that there will also be an appearance by someone meaningful to Hope, but the character will be played by someone new. Fans have suspected that Bo and Hope’s son Zack, who was killed in an accident in 2009, is the one referenced by these Days of Our Lives spoilers, and TVLine confirms that to be the case. Will a slightly older Zack be able to help his mom put her heartbreak behind her and open up to what the future holds?
The big question that Hope has been facing essentially boils down to whether she stays with Rafe or tries to rebuild her relationship with Aiden. Her relationship with Rafe is still in its early stages, but fans know that Aiden has not been entirely honest with Hope about all that transpired before his disappearance. However, he has been pretty assertive in trying to woo her back, and she has felt torn over what to do.
Which man will Hope choose after this time of reflection at the Horton cabin? Alfonso shares Days of Our Lives spoilers detailing that Hope does leave the cabin with a renewed strength, and she is seemingly able to set aside some of her fears. As Soap Central shares, Hope will come to terms with what she needs to do next regarding her future. As the week continues, she does make a decision about Aiden, and it sounds as if she may well be giving him another chance.
According to the Days of Our Lives spoilers from SheKnows Soaps, Hope and Aiden will get together for a romantic dinner during the Wednesday, June 15 show. It sounds as if she decides to see if they can rebuild what they had, but fans probably should not count Rafe out just yet.
Wednesday’s episode should be a powerful one that Hope fans will not want to miss. Stay tuned for additional Days of Our Lives spoilers regarding what is coming up this summer, as teasers indicate there are wild twists and turns ahead for everybody in Salem, and there is juicy stuff on the way.
