However, one super couple has captured the hearts of fans like no other. Bo (Peter Reckell) and Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso) have one of the most iconic love stories in soap opera history. The couple met when they were young, and sparks flew instantly (via Soap Central). Although they had a rocky start, Hope and Bo got married in an epic royal wedding

Bo and Hope faced a lot of adversity in their relationship and were forced to deal with heartbreaking scenarios, such as being kidnapped, brainwashed, and presumed dead. Their marriage also took many hits when they fell in love with other people and suffered the heartbreaking death of their youngest son, Zack Brady.

However, Bo and Hope continued to find their way back to one another despite the odds. After years of being secretly imprisoned, Bo returned to Salem to find the love of his life. He reunited with his friends and family, but his time was cut short when he was diagnosed with a brain tumor, per Soaps in Depth. He died in Hope's arms, seemingly ending their amazing love story. 

Since that time, things haven't been easy for Hope.

Hope killed Stefano DiMera after Bo's death

"Days of Our Lives" fans watched Hope Brady spiral after Bo Brady's death. The character was sent over the edge during her grief. When she learned that Stefano DiMera (Joseph Mascolo) was behind Bo's imprisonment, she confronted him at the DiMera mansion. Stefano provoked Hope, and she ended up shooting him multiple times, finally killing the villain known as The Phoenix once and for all, per Soap Hub

Hope was later arrested for the murder of Stefano and spent months in jail for the crime. However, Shane Donovan and Steve Johnson devised a plan to make it appear that Stefano was still alive in order to clear Hope's name (via Soaps in Depth).

Hope resumed her life and even got her job at the police department back. She began forging a strong friendship with Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering), and the two ultimately fell in love, but Hope was still closed off after losing Bo. Rafe got upset when Hope admitted that she wasn't ready to get married and ended up having a secret one-night stand with his ex-wife, Sami Brady. 

Shockingly, Hope changed her mind about marriage, and she and Rafe got married in a private ceremony. However, the truth about Rafe and Sami's cheating came to light, and Hope was devastated (via She decided to end her marriage with Rafe.

She was brainwashed by Dr. Rolf

Hope Brady continued to struggle after her divorce from Rafe Hernandez. Not only did she have to deal with nearly losing her sister/stepmother Julie Williams due to heart failure, but Hope was also captured and brainwashed by Stefano DiMera's henchman, Dr. Rolf. 

Rolf implanted a chip into Hope's brain to make her believe that she was Princess Gina yet again, per Soaps in Depth. During her reign as Gina, Hope shockingly pushed her cousin Jennifer Horton (Melissa Reeves) off of a balcony and sent her into a year-long coma, per Eventually, Jennifer woke up and remembered the truth, and Hope's personality was restored.

Hope was reunited with her family, including daughter Ciara Brady, who was planning a wedding to Ben Weston.
