Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that a Hope Brady (last played by Kristian Alfonso) recast may be in the works. A new blind item could hint at the return of Ciara Brady Weston’s (Victoria Konefal) mom, which would certainly make sense considering the timing and circumstances.
There’s no logical reason for Hope to be living halfway across the world while Ciara – the daughter she fought so desperately to reunite with – is back in Salem.
Hope has already been missing major events and milestones, so the show really needs to start figuring out a solution.
It’s more important than ever now that Ciara has a baby on the way. Once that baby is born, Hope will surely want to come back to Salem and meet her grandson or granddaughter.
There just won’t be any way around it unless the show wants Hope to look like a horrible parent and grandparent.
Hope has always had a close relationship with Ciara, so why wouldn’t she take an interest in the child Ciara’s having?
That brings us to SOD’s blind item about a soap being on the hunt for a recast.
One daytime drama is looking for someone new to play a major character who’s been off canvas.
That could easily fit for Hope since Kristian Alfonso seemingly still has no interest in a comeback.
Of course, that doesn’t mean Days will permanently replace Alfonso.
It could be a temporary thing if Alfonso decides to reclaim the role of Hope Brady somewhere down the line.
However, it’s also possible DOOL will find a successful and popular recast that works long-term.
It all depends on how this potential recast search goes – that is if this blind item is indeed referring to the hunt for a new Hope Brady.
Bottom line, Days definitely needs Hope around.
If they can’t get Kristian Alfonso to return for at least a brief stint, it’d be a good idea to go ahead and start thinking about recast options.
As other Days news comes in, we’ll pass along updates. Days of Our Lives spoilers say Ciara’s going to need her mom, so stay tuned to see if Hope will come home in some form.
