Hope: Oh! [Laughs]
E.J.: Sorry. Sorry to keep you waiting. Um, what's all this about?
Lexie: Why don't we wait for Tony?
E.J.: Sounds a little bit ominous.
Tony: Alexandra, I just got your message. I got here as soon as I could. Is it Father?
Lexie: His condition hasn't changed, but he is the reason for this meeting.
E.J.: I don't understand.
Tony: What's going on?
Lexie: That's exactly what I want to ask the two of you.
Marlena: Oh. John. [Monitor beeping]
John: You stole my life, you bastard. [Beeping intensifies] Now I'm taking over yours. [Exhales sharply] I don't know what you have planned. I only know how to stop it.
Bo: So, what do you think?
Hope: What do I think? I think... you've taken my breath away. The clothes, the flowers, the horse-drawn carriage. It's just like New Orleans all those years ago.
Bo: You got that right. It's where you first became mine... and I knew we'd be together forever.
Hope: I knew it, too.
Bo: Nothing will ever come between us again. That's why we're here. I want to show you how much I love you -- how much I'll always love you.
Hope: Is this really happening? Are we really doing this? Because I feel like I'm in a dream and I'm gonna wake up any second.
Bo: Maybe this will convince you.
Bo: Hope Williams Brady... will you marry me... again? Hello? I'm on my knee here.
Hope: You know I will. It's what I want more than anything.
Bo: You have just made me the happiest man in the world.
Hope: I can't tell you how much this means to me -- that you planned all of this for us.
Bo: I was afraid you were gonna find out. I had so many secrets running around in my head.
Hope: No. Let's not talk about that now. Not today, okay?
Bo: You're right. Today is about you and me. Nothing's gonna spoil that. So, come on. You don't want to be late for your own wedding, do you? [Laughter]
Maggie: Well, we told you you'd be surprised. Yay!
Bo: Thank you, everybody, for coming by. Um, we couldn't renew our vows without our friends and family here to be part of it. I wish Shawn and Belle and Claire were here, but they're off sailing around the world. I don't know where they got the idea to do something like that. [Laughter] They did send a letter, so I'll read some of these highlights. They're having a great time, and they send their love and best wishes, and thanks to their mother and me for being an inspiration -- not just for this incredible adventure that they're on, but for hanging in there when times got tough and letting their love see them through. Ah. All of you know that I... went through a pretty terrible ordeal a little while back. I almost lost my life. But making it through that experience has, uh, given me a new appreciation for what it is I do have in my life. And I made a vow not to take anything for granted -- not my friends or my family and especially not the love of my life. That's why -- [Chuckles] That's why we're here today -- to -- to celebrate what it is that the two of us have found together. And since we have done this before -- kind of, sort of -- um, I've asked Ma and Doug to kind of officiate.
Bo: So, what do you say, Fancy Face? You ready to do this?
Hope: I have never been more ready for anything.
Bo: [Chuckles] [Monitor beeping rapidly]
John: I'll be right back. We need to talk.
Marlena: Is it about Stefano? What's happened? Has he awakened?
John: It's not about Stefano. It's about Ava. She's gone.
Marlena: I know.
John: The police are looking for her, and they left me a message. They wanted to know if I knew of your whereabouts. You called them, didn't you, Marlena? You found the note. You're the one who turned her in.
Hope: Here you go, sweetheart.
Bo: We're in trouble now. [Laughter]
Caroline: Here he goes.
Doug: Dear friends and family members, it gives me great pleasure today to help preside over this happy affair -- wonderful occasion. And if you had told me that back when Bo first blew into my daughter's life like a hurricane on that motorcycle, I would have told you you were all just crazy, because I just knew that this guy was too much of a rebel to be trusted with my little girl. No offense, Caroline.
Caroline: Oh, and none taken. Bo is still a bit of a rebel. [Laughter]
Doug: Yes, and I thank God he was then... for when he nearly lost her to somebody else, thanks to yours truly, he was not afraid to, uh, take matters into his own hands. He actually -- most of you know this -- he actually kidnapped Hope and took her away from an ill-fated wedding and whisked her away on a stolen bike -- stolen from a policeman, no less.
Bo: Oh, yeah. [Laughter and applause] Yeah.
Doug: And thus began their very storied and very real romance, plus my realization that there's a heck of a lot more to this guy than I had ever dreamed possible.
Caroline: And the rest is history.
Doug: Yes, it is. And now to help us recall some of that history, here are Patch and Kayla, who, fortunately, were here for quite a lot of it. Patch and Kayla.
Steve: Hey, nobody calls me "Patch," dude. [Laughter] But I'll let you get away with it today. You know, all I have to say is you two must be in love because you keep getting married over and over and over again. [Laughter]
Kayla: And we know that with each wedding and each pledge of your love to each other, there's a special place in your heart. And we also know that each one of those weddings came with a different set of unique circumstances.
Steve: But one thing's never changed -- the way you feel about each other.
Kayla: Right. So before you take your vows again, we wanted to take a second to celebrate and remember all those cherished moments from your past.
Steve: We're gonna go way back, starting at the beginning -- Oak Alley Plantation in Old New Orleans.
Bo: Oh, yeah.
Steve: Now, some might argue it wasn't a real wedding.
Kayla: But we both know that you would disagree. I've heard from both of you that maybe it might have been the most special of them all.
Bo: I love you, Hope Williams. I loved you ever since that first time you gave me a hard time and sassed me. You made me so mad. I wanted to turn you over my knee. Because I knew what was underneath that little girl. I knew the woman underneath there. I was just waiting for her to come out. I'm glad I waited... because you're everything I want. I'm gonna spend the rest of my life loving you, taking care of you, lifting you up when you're sad... and telling you my most secret thoughts. You're my woman, Hope, and I'm proud to say that. I promise to love you and take care of you... and... give myself to you with no holding back. Hope... I take you as my wife... now and forever.
Hope: Bo, that was beautiful. I don't know why you love me, but I am just so grateful that you do. I only want to spend the rest of my life with you. I want to hold you and comfort you when you're down. And I want to laugh with you when you're up. And I am so proud to stand beside you, because I love you, Bo Brady... now and forever. I will always love you.
Steve: Oh, look how sweet they are. So sweet!
Lexie: Abe's wondering where I am. Bo and Hope are renewing their vows at St. Luke's. I should be there.
Tony: Then, by all means, go.
Lexie: Not till I get some answers. I want to know what's going on with the two of you, and I want to know now.
Tony: What makes you think anything's going on?
Lexie: Let's just say it's a feeling I get.
E.J.: Could you be a little bit more specific, please?
Lexie: All right. Just months ago, we were all for letting Father rot in that sanitarium. And now you're all of a sudden concerned for his well-being. Why the drastic change of heart?
Tony: I have no idea what you're talking about.
E.J.: Uh, well, for my part, I don't think we should do anything that further jeopardizes Father's health. I don't think it's worth the risk.
Tony: I totally agree.
Lexie: Well, it sounds to me like you're fighting this because you don't want Father to wake up.
Kayla: And then after their impossibly romantic first wedding in New Orleans...
Steve: Uh, and a few trials and tribulations thrown in for good measure...
Kayla: Bo and Hope finally tied the knot for real.
Steve: But this was no ordinary wedding, either.
Kayla: Mnh-mnh. Far from it. In fact, it was an honest-to-goodness English royal wedding. Talk about your fairy-tale endings.
Bo: I know our lives aren't going to be just sunshine and roses from here on in. But I want you to know I'm gonna try my hardest to keep our love alive... because we've got something very special here. It's worth fighting for. I love you, Hope.
Hope: I guess I, uh, I fell in love with you the first time I saw you. But it's taken me all this time to realize that...what I felt then is -- is nothing compared to what I'm feeling right now. Remember what we said to each other in New Orleans? "True love's the gift that God hath given to man alone beneath the heavens... the silver link... the silver tie... which heart to heart... and mind to mind... in body and in soul can bind."
Ciara: Mommy, did you look like a princess?
Bo: You bet she did. She still does.
Steve: [Clears throat]
Bo: Oh, sorry.
Steve: And then wedded bliss.
Kayla: No, no. More than wedded bliss. Then my brother took his bride and their baby Shawn D. and sailed off into the sunset.
Steve: Literally. And how many people get to say that?
Kayla: Except Shawn and Belle. Mm-hmm. But then to everyone's delight, you guys returned.
Steve: Mm-hmm. "Where circumstances once again conspired to drive them apart."
Kayla: But their love proved stronger, and they were at last united.
Steve: Just in the nick of time.
Kayla: We don't have pictures from that particular wedding, but we're sure that you have a few of your own moments that will stay in your heart forever.
Bo: I, Bo Brady, take you, Hope Williams, to be my love, my soul mate, and my wife. I promise to love, honor, cherish...you in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health, in labor pains, and as our family grows. I will be your loving and devoted husband for all the days of our lives.
Hope: No. I'll never forget it.
Bo: Mnh-mnh. It was also the day our son Zack was born.
Hope: He's with us -- in our hearts. He always will be.
Steve: Well, guess what. Bo and Hope weren't content to leave it at that. Once again, later that year, they did it up right.
Kayla: Mm-hmm. A beautiful, romantic Christmas Eve wedding -- with all the trimmings.
Bo: My gift to you today... is to tell you in front of everybody we care about... that my love for you is deeper and more powerful than it ever was. You and I -- we've changed an awful lot since we first fell in love. And the man I am now loves you a heck of a lot more than the boy I was then. So anytime you want to do this wedding thing, I'm up for it, because there's nothing I'd rather do than tell the world how much I love you and my family. [Chuckles]
Hope: [Sniffles] I, Hope -- [Sniffles] I give you this ring as a sign of my love and fidelity... in the name of the Father, the son, and the holy spirit. I give you my life and all my love for the world to see now and for all eternity. [Chuckles] Does it sound familiar?
Hope: I realize that loving you has made me more able to love, more willing to give, and profoundly grateful for the chance to spend all of the days of my life loving you and our beautiful children. And, you know, I still feel the same.
Bo: So do I. Get back here.
Kayla: And I think the best is yet to come.
Tony: All I'm saying, Alexandra, I think it's perhaps best to let sleeping dogs lie. If Father wakes, I don't think he's going to be very happy with the three of us, and, as you pointed out, we are the ones who sent him away to be taken care of by strangers. We all but forgot about him.
E.J.: It's true. If he wakes up, he's going to be furious. I think we all know exactly what it's like to experience Father's wrath.
Marlena: When I realized that Ava had fled, I felt that I had to contact the authorities.
John: And why exactly did you feel you had to?
Marlena: Well, for one thing, I didn't want you in more trouble than you're already in. John, were you serious about... what you said about Stefano?
John: I mean everything I say.
Marlena: Well, then, I'm begging you -- please -- please think about it before you do anything foolish. Your half brother is not famous for his forgiveness.
Caroline: Hope, your Grandmother Alice asked me to read this. She recited this to tom every year on their anniversary. It was first read at their wedding. "True love's the gift which God hath given to man alone beneath the heavens. The silver link... the silver tie... which heart to heart... and mind to mind... in body and in soul can bind."
Hope: Thank you. Those words have more meaning to me every time I hear them.
Bo: Mm-hmm. Thanks, Ma.
Doug: And now it's time for our bride and groom to restate their vows. Ta-da!
Bo: There he goes again. You first.
Hope: Me first?
Hope: Uh, I -- I don't have anything prepared since I had no idea this was happening. Thank you very much.
Bo: It's okay.
Hope: It is okay, because what I have to say... comes straight from the heart. Brady, honestly, I cannot believe... that 24 years have gone by. [Laughter]
Steve: We heard that.
Hope: But you know what? I look into your eyes... and I still see the man I fell helplessly in love with when I was just a girl... the man who never fails to surprise me -- even now -- the man who... [Exhales deeply] ...Still makes my heart flutter... with just a look... or a touch. And, yes, you drive me crazy. He does. He drives me absolutely insane with his stubbornness and his... own way of doing things. But then I remember... that way... is one of the reasons I fell in love with you. Not always by the book, but always from a place of honesty and integrity. You've always had the courage to follow your heart and trust in it. What I'm trying to say -- you're my hero. You've always been my hero. And I know that... whatever lies ahead, we'll be together. We'll stand by each other. To you -- my soul mate... my partner, my husband. I love you, Brady. I love you.
Marlena: John? Are you still there? John, can you hear me?
John: You thought you could play God with my life.
Marlena: Where are you?
John: In Stefano's hospital room. And he's completely at my mercy, as I was at his.
Marlena: John, whatever you're thinking of doing, please, don't.
John: Don't worry, Blondie. Unfortunately, there's someone else I have to deal with first. So the old man's safe... for the moment.
Bo: I gave a lot of thought to what I, you know, wanted to say today...'cause I want to express everything I feel for you. The thing is, uh, the same words kept coming up for me -- the ones I've said one way or other all the way back to Oak Alley. I still...want only you and need only you. I don't deserve you, and I thank God that you're standing by my side...and that you stay by my side even when that's not so easy to do. Your belief in me and your faith in me has made me the man I am today -- a man I can be proud of, even when that's not so easy to do.
Doug: And now Bo and Hope will repeat the exchange of their wedding bands.
Hope: I don't have mine anymore.
Bo: Yes, you do.
Lexie: So you're saying because Father will be angry with us, we shouldn't make any effort to wake him? [Exhales sharply] Well, you know what? As I -- as I told you, according to his brain scan, he should be awake.
E.J.: Okay, Lexie, why don't we just wait? If this is going to happen, it's going to happen. Let's just let it happen naturally.
Tony: I'm all for that. I mean, why push it?
Lexie: I've got to go. I'm half an hour late. Okay. All right. Bye, Tony.
Lexie: We'll talk about this later.
E.J.: We'll talk...
Abe: Oh, I'm glad you're here.
Lexie: I'm sorry I'm late.
Hope: How? How is it possible?
Bo: We'll get to that in a minute. Ladies first.
Hope: You know I don't have one for you.
Ciara: Here it is, Daddy.
Bo: Good job, little one.
Hope: Thank you, sweetheart.
Bo: Thank you very much.
Hope: This -- this isn't your ring.
Bo: It's the one ma put on Pop's finger on their wedding day over 50 years ago. She said I could wear it as a symbol of this new beginning... and of a love that, uh, like theirs... stood the test of time.
Hope: Let this be a symbol... of my promises to you... and a reminder of my devotion. I'm honored to call you my husband. [Smooches]
Bo: [Inhales deeply] Well, it's been way too long since you've worn your wedding band... and, uh, though this isn't the exact one that was... lost at sea... it's an exact replica made from the same cast by the same jeweler. I coaxed Mr. Andrini out of retirement so it would be just right.
Hope: It's not just right. It's perfect.
Bo: There's one slight difference. We engraved today's date, along with the original date. Hope, I give you this ring as a symbol of my vow. I promise to love you and honor you, to keep you and comfort you, in sickness and in health, for better and for worse, as long as we both shall live. [Chuckling] No?
Doug: Okay. Okay. Okay. Now... it has been our absolute joy to recognize with you all the love and the commitment that brought Bo and Hope here today to renew their vows. We thank you all for being here and sharing in this unique -- this singular moment.
Caroline: Dear God, you are the spirit of love in the universe. Please continue to bless Bo and Hope and their lives together so they may be an example of what true love can be.
Doug: And now, although you sneaked in a few before, this is the official, legal one. Bo, you may kiss your bride.
Bo: Thank you.
Roman: All right!
[Cheers and applause]
E.J.: Father. Hey...wake up. It's me -- E.J. I need to speak to you again.
Tony: "Again"? So, you know that he's conscious, too?
Marlena: Stay away from me. I mean it. I'm warning you. You s-- I'm warning you.
Tony: [Exhales sharply] Why didn't you tell me you knew he had woken up?
E.J.: Shh! Why didn't I tell you? Why didn't you tell me?
Tony: Because he swore me to secrecy.
E.J.: The same with me.
Tony: What did he say to you?
E.J.: I don't know. Probably the same thing he said to you.
Tony: What the hell is going on? Why did Father lie to us?
E.J.: I don't know. We got to figure this out. Come on. Let's go and ask him. All right, Father. We know you're awake -- both of us.
Tony: We don't know what your game is, but if you want us to keep your little secret, you better start talking.
E.J.: You better start doing it now. Father?
Marlena: Get out of my way, or I will use this.
Julie: My darling, you were wonderful. It was all wonderful. But now we must rush away. We have to go to the house to get everything ready for the reception.
Doug: Okay. Ciara, wait till you see that cake. It is chocolate with vanilla frosting.
Julie: Yum -- exactly.
Doug: Yes. Yes.
Julie: Okay, see you all later.
Bo: See you in a couple minutes.
Hope: See you at the house.
Bo: I just want to thank everybody again for coming by, especially those who helped with all the arrangements and were able to keep this a secret from nosy here.
Maggie: Well, you don't know how hard it was to know all this and not to be able to say anything.
Hope: I have never been more surprised in all of my life.
Bo: Well, everybody is welcome back at our place for a big New Orleans style barbecue underneath the stars. [Cheers]
Maggie: I'll take these.
Brad: Uh, not so fast.
Caroline: Oh. Who are you?
Brad: Brad Baker, Salem Spectator.
Caroline: Did you want to take a photo of the newlyweds?
Hope: You thought of everything.
Bo: No, I didn't think of this.
Roman: He doesn't have a camera, either. So, what can we do for you, Mr. Baker? How can we help you?
Brad: I'd like to get a quote from Detective Bo Brady. I'd like for him to tell me and all the citizens of this community how he sleeps at night, knowing he's a liar and a disgrace to the Salem Police?
Marlena: Don't underestimate me. I will stab you. Oh! Oh! Oh! Help! [Screaming]
Abe: There is no evidence, is there, Bo?
Tony: You have no idea what's happened since you've been incapacitated.
Stefano: You'd be surprised. And now I'm going to make everyone else who betrayed me pay.
