    For the Bo & Hope #1, #2 and #3, I've remastered these edits and created brand new master dvds. I've also added an additional 10 hours to this time frame and including a #1C dvd, a #2C dvd, and a #3C dvd. This edit contains Bo's arrival in Salem, meeting Marlena and Hope, giving Marlena the stolen microwave. Hope follows Bo around, then she runs away from home and Bo tracks her down and arrives just in time to rescue her during an attack, contains Hope's crush on Roman and following up to the cabin during his fishing trip and coming onto him, 4th of July picnic when Hope kisses Bo for the first time while manning the kissing booth, their second kiss is during a fantasy sequence.

    They really bond when Hope finds Bo being beaten and stabbed by the Vipers. She shows great courage in taking him home on his motorcycle, nurses him refusing to leave his side. Bo becomes a private detective and is hired to investigate corruption at the prison Liz is being held in, Hope follows him and pretends to be his wife. Roman being arrested for murder. Mrs. H and Bo break Roman out of jail (she feeds Roman tainted donuts that make him ill), and Bo hides out in the ambulance. There are quite a bit of new scenes of Bo & Mrs. H with their plan of breaking Roman out of jail with the help her donuts in late Nov, 1983.

    Quality on this is so-so, watchable giving the age of the episodes. I’ve re-edited when I had complete episodes to do so. The episodes around Renee’s party & murder are really good, several episodes around the Viper’s stabbing Bo are also quite good. I have complete continuous episodes from November 29, 1983 onward so from that time I was able to include every Bo scene and every Hope scene and that has lead to many additional scenes being available from Nov 29, 1983-Feb, 1984. I've decided to completely redo this time frame which will cover the BH #1-3. My episodes from Nov 29 - Dec 21, 1983 are so-so quality and varying degrees... watchable but not pristine, but worth adding in additional scenes from Bo's storyline, and from Hope's storyline as they interact with additional people in Salem. The quality will take a step up on the redo of the BH #2 as the quality of most episodes from Dec 22 onward are quite good.

    Bo & Hope #1 May 2nd - December 5, 1983: 10 hrs 40 minutes
    The Bo & Hope #1 is now almost 11 hours and contains a free bonus #1C dvd with an additional 2 hrs 40 mins! This edit is more edited to Bo & Hope's scenes together though there are additional Bo scenes when available. Its really a wonderful edit of their early romance and I so very much enjoyed watching this. I had forgotten how much I loved this couple way back when! This edit contains Bo's arrival in Salem, meeting Marlena and Hope. Hope follows Bo around, then she runs away from home and Bo tracks her down and arrives just in time to rescue her during an attack, contains Hope's crush on Roman and following up to the cabin during his fishing trip and coming onto him, fourth of July picnic when Hope kisses Bo for the first time while manning the kissing booth, their second kiss during a fantasy sequence. Hope takes care of Bo after the Vipers stab him, Bo becomes a private detective and is hired to investigate corruption at the prison Liz is being held in, Hope follows him and pretends to be his wife.

    Note, this one is discounted as there are some glitchy sections.. had some tapes from May to mid June, 1986 that had a slight jump in the video on quite a few episodes... still crystal clear quality and good audio.. there are a few episodes with some video glitches.. not bad but not pristine... and then when the video lined up there would be a slight audio hum... so some challenges on the first 6 hrs... would appreciate your feedback as a viewer in comparison to the other edits in the series... and just how annoying it is. I have enjoyed revisiting this time frame... very fortunate so much of this has survived as well as it has.. one reason I had procrastinated editing that time frame.. I knew there were some glitchy shows involved. Click here to read the full edit description.

    On this edit, Hope gives Bo separation papers. Marlena has been kidnapped by Orpheus and Hope works with him, later joined by Steve & Kayla to rescue her. Stockholm is primarily a Roman & Marlena storyline, joined in by Steve & Kayla. Hope comes and goes into this storyline, so kept this edited to primarily all of Hope’s scenes and all of Bo’s.
    Roman meets with Steve & Hope and tells them the clues of the three knives. Steve tells him about their tattoos. Hope remembers there is a picture of Bo’s tattoo and brings him a picture of it. Roman & Steve head to Stockholm. Bo goes to see Hope and realizing that he is facing completely losing her, and finally tells her the truth and they compare notes. He finally has evidence against Victor and turns it over to Shane. She tells Bo about the three tattoos and she has to go to Stockholm to warn Roman & Steve that Victor is linked to Britta’s death (her gun is found in his safe).

    Bonus dvd. I decided to create a bonus dvd of 5 episodes as a complimentary dvd. There is a nice anniversary show with montages so including that separately. I decided to add a few more episodes to show part of the storyline that doesn’t involve B&H but is part of the story, will email that info separately. Click here to read the full edit description.

    Bo & Hope #20 December 18, 1986 - April 20, 1987: 8 hour original edit
    This edit begins with Marlena's funeral, and Christmas. Bo tells Hope he has evidence against Victor of tax evasion. Emma is murdered on New Year's Eve and Kim is arrested and eventually released. A lot of sweet scenes between Bo & Hope as they celebrate her pregnancy, her baby shower. A real treat was the arrival of Wally Kurth as Justin Kiriakis! LOVE seeing him again! Had forgotten about him being on Days way back when! Party for Shane & Kim once Andrew is returned to them. This edit was filled with sweet happy moments of this young couple expecting their first baby, topped off with Victor leaking evidence that leads Bo to feel he has learned he is not Victor's son that it was all a lie. He heads straight back to tell the Brady's and reunite with his family, showing how much Victor really did love him. Caroline figures out what Victor has done for her family. Hope gives birth to Sean Douglas. Weeks after their son Shawn’s birth, Bo and Hope decided to leave Salem and set sail on a trip around the world. So many sweet scenes as Bo says goodbye to his family, touching moments with his parents, with Roman, Steve & Kayla, Kim & Shane... and then happily together they sail off into the sunset.
    My Note: I’ve seen a lot of characters depart soaps over the years, but don’t think there was every such a spectacular send off as this. The Bo & Hope storyline in the 1980’s was an example of one of the best super couples ever! The writing that went into their final weeks as they had final scenes with their friends and family, old relationships healed, heartfelt goodbyes, and a HAPPILY EVER AFTER! So rarely happens in soap history. Click here to read the full edit description.

Ernesto has made threats against both Victor and Roman, and keeps Bo in line by threatening Hope. The gang all leave for the Cruise of Deception, Julie & Victor, Jack & Jenn, Roman & Isabella, and Bo. They are soon surprised by Hope’s arrival.
    Ernesto begins his games by leaving costumes out for the mascarade ball. Bo & Hope dress as Scarlett & Rhett Butler. Then Ernesto insists on them performing a play and Hope is to wear her wedding dress for her role. Ernesto’s plan is to switch the prop gun for a real gun and have Victor shoot and kill Roman. Bo switches guns and he takes over the role and shoots Roman with the fake gun. Ernesto is furious at Bo’s intervention and has him beaten up as a message. He keeps trying to keep him away from Hope, but Bo finally tells her the truth behind Ernesto’s devious revenge plot and Bo has been under cover and just trying to keep Hope safe. Ernesto continues to threaten Hope if Bo doesn’t keep her at arms length. They still find ways to meet in secret and have some alone time together. This edit contains all of Hope’s scenes and all of Bo’s scenes and additional scenes such as Ernesto, Victor as needed to tell their story. Click here to read the full edit description.

    Bo & Hope #22 June 19 - August 8, 1990: 8 hour original edit
    This edit completes the Cruise of Deception storyline and Hope's 1990 return. He has just told her the truth at the end of the #21B edit and the #22A dvd is of them working together, stealing moments together when Ernesto doesn't seem them, B&H at their best. Ernesto has rigged the Loretta to explode and everyone finds safety aboard the life raft. They land on an island and take refuge. Shane & Steve get worried and start searching when they realize that no one has heard from them. In the conclusion on the #22B, Hope was put in a cage over a vat of acid. There was an explosion and it appeared the cage with Hope inside went into the acid. Hope and Ernesto are killed in the explosion and are presumed dead. Bo desperately searches for her. Steve stays behind to help him but they never find her. Bo is in denial about her death but Mrs. H finally convinces him to attend her memorial. Bo gets false hope that she is alive when Ernesto's goon, Hans, tells him she is alive and tries to blackmail him for her return. Victor rushes to the rescue and puts an end to this ploy. Bo finally accepts she is gone and returns to Salem. Sweet moments as he makes nice with Isabella, Roman, ect.. and a great moment when Victor has Nico deck the smart ass Johnny!
    I included every Bo scene, every Hope scene and additional scenes as needed to tell the Cruise of Deception storyline. There are quite a few Victor & Julie, Victor & Julie, and Roman & Victor, Roman & Toscano on the island scenes. Julie comes in this storyline on the #21 as a power house of elegance and strength. She advocated for Hope while Victor worries about Bo and this brings them together. An interesting combination is Victor & Roman forced to work together on the island and brought together by their common love for Isabella & Bo.
    I also included Shane & Steve back home looking for them, and having to tell the families that the gang is missing. I included most of Ernesto’s scenes as he schemes behind the scenes. Included Julie telling Mr & Mrs. H about Hope’s death, and Roman telling the Brady’s about Hope. There are some very sweet scenes in the aftermath of Bo returning home with his friends and family.. Days at its finest is the friend & family relationships. Hope continues to appear AFTER her death in NEW scenes as Bo remembers moments on their boat with their son. These scenes go through 8/3. I ended the edit after he returns from Italy in 8/8 when Hans has confirmed her death.
    (Note: These dvds are Bope edits and the goal is to tell their storyline.. so I did not include separate Jack & Jenn storyline, nor all of the Roman & Isabella on the boat just a few scenes as needed to tell the story. Most of the island scenes are included, except again Jack & Jenn off in the cave - their storyline is pretty separate for all of the cruise & island. So very complete for Bope, but not highly edited to them but to the storyline.
    Since I had about :45 minutes open on the end of the #22B dvd, I went ahead and added in the beginning of Hope’s 1994 return to show she is alive and being held at Stefano’s. John rescues her and takes her to Bo, he returns her to PC. She has amnesia and thinks she is someone named Gina. Gina was found at Maison Blanche in 1994. Bo refused to believe who she was. This woman had amnesia, but looked exactly like Hope. Earlier that night, Bo had proposed to his fiancée, Billie Reed. There were plastic surgery marks, so this could have been another fishy dealing with Stefano. For months, Gina thought she was Hope but had no memories to back it up. Alice truly believed this woman was her granddaughter and she was right. Amnesiac Gina's fingerprint samples matched Hope's exactly. Hope resumed her life as Hope, but that was no easy task. She wanted her husband back, but he was in love with Billie. Dutifully, Hope granted Bo a divorce, and Billie and Bo married until Billie realized that Bo had unresolved feelings. She left Salem for Paris and stayed there for a year or two. Click here to read the full edit description.

    Hope Returns 1994 #1 June 22, 1994 - January 5, 1995: 8 hour original edit
    There are a couple of very young BH flashbacks on this edit. Gina/Hope meets Shawn D. He thinks she is an angel. She meets the Horton clan and they are stunned. Gina begins revisiting moments in her past to try to spark her memory of her life as Hope. Bo is stunned to see her wearing her wedding dress. Hope spends a tender moment by Shawn D’s hospital bed. Bo is stunned to hear her sing the song that Hope used to sing to their son. The DNA results are not conclusive, Bo breaks up with Billie, just as we see Celeste brainwashing Hope to have memories to prove she is Hope. She next remembers the night Shawn D was conceived. He challenges her to recreate that night in exact detail to prove she is Hope and she is able to. The next memory Celeste implants is of them with Shawn D as a baby. Bo accepts that she is Hope and tells Shawn D. The Horton’s give her a welcome home party. Billie begins to notice the connection between the music and a dazed Hope and walks in to see her dazed holding onto the phone. She believes the music is the trigger for Hope to remember and is convinced Stephano is brainwashing Gina to believe she is Hope.
    Billie is further convinced when Celeste drugs her by mistake and tries to implant a Hope memory in Billie. Celeste leaves behind the “Book of Hope”. Billie arrives just as Bo & Hope are about to make love and tries to stop them, she can prove Gina isn’t Hope. Billie drops the book which later Hope shares with Bo and he realizes she isn’t Hope. Gina shares the news with Mrs. H who doesn’t believe it. Bo & Bilile get engaged and tell Shawn D. that Gina isn’t Hope and isn’t his mom. Gina attends the Horton family Christmas after Doug & Julie talk her into going. Mrs. H gives her a “Gina” ornament for the tree and it almost immediately drops and breaks as the “Hope” ornament stays on the tree. Alice tenderly asks Tom if that was him letting her know that the Gina ornament didn’t belong on the tree as she is really Hope. Alice then stops Bo & Billie’s wedding insisting that his dead wife is actually alive!
    This continues to be a highlight dvd and contains the important storyline moments for Hope’s return, but does not include every Hope scene. I think this works to show the progression of her return, some wonderful moments of her with the Horton’s and especially Mrs. H. Love their relationship!
    This is more highly edited to cover Hope's return so I did include every scene. It was very slow bringing her on and the first couple of months she was shown from behind, in very brief scenes, and then spent quite a bit of time on the boat with Stephano, being rescued by Roman, splashing around in the water and being unconscious during her rescue. As mentioned, the first part of her return is contained on the last :45 minutes of the #22B.. was just too sad to end that edit with Bo accepting Hope's death so had to continue to show she was alive, held by Stephano, John rescuing her (so confusing in 1990 he is Roman and in 1994 he is back to being John!).

    Hope Returns 1995 #2 January 17 - July 31, 1984: 8 hour original edit
    I had not planned on editing this time frame.. however when I went from Hope's death in 1990 and jumped to Aug 1, 1995 with Peter's return it made no sense, no build up and I was lost. I tried watching a couple of dvds before that return and it still was disjointed, I had skipped too much storyline. I decided to go back and did highlight dvds for Hope in 1994 which set up her struggle to learn her identity, her connection with Alice and her determination that she is indeed Hope. The Hope Returns #2 is actually really good and even if you decide to skip the #1, I really enjoyed this edit.. as Hope decides to become a cop, has some success as a local hero and the build up to finding out she is Hope.. this is a very enjoyable time frame. After watching this year of her storyline and condensing it down to 4 dvds catches the viewer up on her struggle and the viewer becomes even more invested in Gina becoming Hope. It simply doesn't have the same emotional impact if you skip this time frame.
    On this edit, we learn that Gina is actually Hope! Alice gives Hope the puzzle box that only she and Tom could open. She doesn’t tell her the significance that only Hope & Tom could open it. Alice believes that Gina being able to open the puzzle box will prove that she is Hope. Celeste steals the puzzle box from Gina and throws it in the trash (it is picked up by a homeless lady). A court declares that Hope is legally dead, Bo soon marries Billie. Alice suggests that Gina apply to be a police officer, she hopes this will trigger Hope’s memories. Gina sees a robbery and races after the thief and he gets her man. Bo is stunned to arrive and learn Gina is the hero and she becomes a media darling. A news crew shows up at her door asking how it feels to wake up to learn she is the hottest hero in town!
    A very shaken up Shawn D tells Hope that some man just tried to sell him drugs! Gina again comes to the rescue and captures a drug dealer in front of the Brady Pub. Gina passes all the required tests to become a police officer with superior scores. Gina goes to see Stefano after he has been arrested and implores him to tell her who she really is. He tells her that she was found badly disfigured in July of 1990 in New Orleans. She had disfiguring burns were from an acid fire. Bo & Gina go to New Orleans and question an orderly who was on duty the night she was brought in. He had stolen a bracelet Hope was wearing and the inscription proves she was Hope. Bobby Lee sends Bo a letter stating he knows Gina’s true identity, Billie hides the letter from Bo. Billie goes to NO to see Bobby Lee and he tells her the inscription on the bracelet read, "To Hope, with all my love, Bo." Gina accidentally discovers Bobby-Lee's letter and confronts Billie about the letter from Bobby Lee. She reveals what Bobby Lee claimed was written on the bracelet.

    Bo & Hope #23 August 1 - September 27, 1995: 8 hour original edit
    This is a big storyline edit! Peter returns as Bo and on that very first show that he is back, Gina is able to open the puzzle box, finds the letter inside that Hope wrote to Bo on their wedding night and as he reads the letter, she begins to recite the words. Fingerprints on the letter finally confirm that she is Hope. Hope fires a gun at the shooting range and she blacks out at the explosion and has a series of Hope memories, when she wakes up she has all of her memories back! Bo decides he wants a divorce and is going to remarry Billie, all the while having flashbacks of his life with Hope. Mickie arranges for them to go to Santa Rosa for a quickie divorce. Turns out that is where they renewed their vows and celebrated a second honeymoon, with lots of flashbacks of their time together there, bring on the heat!
    I have included all of Bo and all of Hope’s scenes. They haven't had scenes together since 1990 and once they start working together, wow! Most of their scenes are with each other, so a LOT of BH scenes on this edit! Loved all the flashbacks, not just a short music montage but full scenes from New Orleans, from them sailing away, from Shawn D's birth, what a great walk down memory land. I also loved the new flashbacks so we get a glimpse into their life circa 1987-1990 while they were sailing around the world. Click here to read the full edit description.

    Bo & Hope #24 September 27 - December 26, 1995: 8 hour original edit
    Billie leaves town to give Bo time to figure out his feelings for Hope without fear of hurting her. Bo and Hope are assigned to work at the Blue Moon cocktail lounge as an undercover assignment. The manager, Jude St. Claire, becomes fixated on Hope as Bo worries about her safety. Hope not only gets Jude’s attention, but gets a job as a bartender and then a stripper. Bo seethes with worry over her safety. They spend the night together on an island looking for Shawn D’s science project that he left behind and wind up sleeping together under a shared blanket for warmth. They both wind up in Aremid for Jennifer & Peter’s wedding. Both think of their wedding day and Bo kisses her! Tony sets up John to make it look like John shot him, only problem is Tony winds up killing himself. Jude kidnaps Hope but she stabs him in the eye and escapes. Bo is so relieved to find her that he holds her and begs her to never leave him again. Bo tells Hope that he wants to explore his feelings for her. She is afraid of being hurt and tells him that it is too late. He gives her a music box with their song and makes his case for giving their relationship a try and she finally agrees to give their relationship a try. They spend Christmas together, sleigh ride, decorating a tree, a snowball fight. So awesome to see them finally together as a happy family! Click here to read the full edit description.
