CARBOS, KEEP THE FAITH!!!



Since Bo and Carly's breakup, I've been handling the situation in the best and sensible way; I simply stopped watching and reading the spoilers at Daycafe.com. Since I ignored DAYS for several years, this has been a very easy decision to make as well as the fact that the Carbo supporters are even more motivated to fight for this iconic couple. It's really touching that despite only 3 years of being a couple, Bo and Carly have so many fans who love them; die-hard fans and new fans who got devoted to them when Crystal Chappell returned in 2009. 
Which is why I just don't understand KC and his writing crew more than ever; Bo and Hope have been a couple for 25 years, SO WHAT??? It's not like they didn't problems all those years and from the way they were on-off and off-on and AGAIN on-off all that time, their marriage has been more like a vase that's fallen off several times and the broken pieces glued back together. Then comes the time when that vase becomes so cracked in many places it loses it's original beauty and the owner would either stop using it or simply throw it away. THAT'S Bo and Hope's marriage, so MANY cracks and yet the writers persist at dragging them back, only this time- they are using guilt on Bo's part to draw him back to a woman who does'nt deserve him. 

No, I AM NOT BIASED! I'm putting it bluntly; Hope doesn't deserve him... she left her matrimonial home with THEIR daughter after accusing Bo to his face that he'd gambled with Ciara's life during the kidnapping, when Zach died, what did she do, sort comfort in the arms of another man; yet everyone- her family/friends and her real- life supporters are all acting as if she's some poor fragile bird that's been wounded and Bo is the bad guy- he's ALWAYS been the one to fix things, ALWAYS the one ready to forget the past and move on. No one thought of how he felt after Hope left him and  once he found comfort with an old love, he's being judged along with Carly. 
NBC KNOW what we want, they KNOW we have more than enough logical reasons why Bo and Carly should be together, they KNOW Carbo has a huge fan base and they KNOW it's time TO CALL IT A DAY! They have to stop this ridiculous game they are doing, making Hope the victim and Bo and Carly the guilty parties or  pushing Bo back to Hope and Carly being so unpopular in Salem. Because whether they like it or not... Carly's the woman for Bo, we know so because it's true. It's time that DAYS leave the past well behind and face facts, Bo and Carly ARE THE FUTURE. Case closed!

End of Bo & Carly? A BIG FAT NO!!!!

I don't have to say that it was a sad and very emotional day for the Carbos as we all watched Bo and Carly exchange another heart rending goodbye; Peter Reckell and the lovely Ms. Chappell giving us a memorable performance.
 At first when I read the spoilers announcing this I was furious and disappointed; "Bo realises he made a mistake and breaks it off with Carly." I was like, "So... everything you promised and said to Carly was all a LIE? All she did was warm your bed???" All I could fume over for a long time was that the DAYS writers were turning Bo Brady to a fickle bastard who's been stringing a lovely woman along all this time, adding 'cruel' along with 'stupid' and 'incompetent' to their list of shortcomings.
But it wasn't like that all. Carly herself made the big gesture of breaking off their relationship and urging Bo to repair his marriage because it looked like Hope had changed for the better. While he agreed things were now different, he was still unwilling to let Carly go; how easy could it be to let go of a lady who's been more than loving and patient with him all this time and this current act of selfless compassion driving him to say 'Is it wise to make me love you more than I already do?' with love mirrored in his eyes as he looked down at her. I, who cried during the 1993 episode when they broke up the first time (it was 'Fake Bo'-Robert Kelker Kelly-  then but still very painful), was too numb to cry this time because I have NEVER SEEN a more mature, understanding and brave character than Carly Manning; her gestures and actions have always been misinterpreted by many people in Salem but if they knew her very well like Bo does, they would definitely see a woman who thinks of everyone and anyone, except herself. This move obviously gave her a lot of pain but she did it anyway, because of her great love for this man.
And considering the way poor Bo broke down after she left, showed just how much he still loved Carly and no doubt  realizing the sacrifice she'd just made. Why wouldn't any man want to hold on to a rare gem like that???

All in all, it was a very emotional break up and I'm more sad than angry. Once again, I speak with no bias; Bo and Carly love story has a lot of potential and it is a story YET to be told. For God sake, they only had 3 years- they're older now but still connected despite others reminding us that Bo and Hope had 25 years and as such deserve to stay together. I don't agree and neither do many of the Carbos; Carly made Bo happy again when he was deep in despair... twice, and they are so alike in spirit. Carly should not be used as some sort of means for Hope to re-examine her feelings for a man she left in a fit of anger and Bo should stop being portrayed as  a guilt ridden man who keeps on clinging to the past. It surprised me that Bo still expected Carly to go home with him that day; 'you and your wife have re-connected, so you can't eat your cake and have it; if you want Carly- SAY SO and move on with her,' was my opinion.
We don't know what to expect now, except that  Carly (Crystal Chappell) is going to have a new story in March. Only curiosity is making me anticipate that because I'm really disillusioned now. But thanks to encouragement from my fellow supporters, I'm still rooting for Bo and Carly. Even with that episode, we are all comforted by this thought, their relationship may be over, but their love isn't.
PEACE AND LOVE TO YOU ALL.
