"Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives." Follow the trials and tribulations of the Bradys, Hortons, DiMeras, and other families of Salem, as their relationships forge romance, adventure, mystery, comedy, and drama.
After attending boarding school, Hope returned to Salem as a mature woman. Larry Welch began courting her, but blue-collar rebel Bo Brady stole Hope's heart. The two would eventually marry and had a son, Shawn-Douglas, named for the man who raised Bo, Shawn Brady.
Hope was almost killed in a cave explosion. Presuming Hope was dead, Bo went on with his life and took up with Billy Reed. But Hope was very much alive and suffering from amnesia. Under Stefano's spell, she assumed the identity of Princess Gina. Later, Stefano transformed Gina back into Hope.
Bo and Hope got back together and had another son. What they didn't know was that the baby belonged to Marlo, the niece of Stefano's henchman Rolf. Stefano had the babies switched. Abe and Lexie adopted Marlo's son, who, in reality was Bo and Hope's. Eventually the truth was revealed, and Abe had to give Bo and Hope their biological son, whom they named Zack. The son they were raising was given to his biological father.
When Bo discovered that Chelsea, his long-lost daughter with Billie, was alive, Hope tried her best to accept the teenager into the family. But Hope was dealt adevastating blow when her youngest son Zack wondered into traffic and was struck and killed by a car driven by Chelsea. When Billie confessed to being the driver, Hope lashed out. When the truth came out that Chelsea was the driver and Bo knew the truth the whole time, Hope walked out on their marriage.
At this time Hope learned she was expecting a baby, but she was unsure of the identity of the father. Was it Bo or Patrick Lockhart? When paternity tests proved it was Patrick, Bo was devastated. Later, it was revealed that Patrick changed the paternity test results and Bo was in fact the father. Hope gave birth to a healthy girl that she and Bo named Ciara Alice Brady. At this time, Hope was also working on a relationship with Chelsea. Their bond grew tighter when Bo was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Chelsea was the perfect donor to save her father's life.
When Ciara was kidnapped, Bo chose to go after the kidnappers instead of paying the ransom. When Ciara was rescued, Hope couldn't let go of the fact that Bo put his daughter's life at risk, so she and Ciara moved out of the house. Bo and Hope's marriage became more strained when Bo's ex-lover Carly Manning returned to Salem in need of help, Hope began taking sleeping pills to get through the night. What she didn't know was that she was taking on another personality under the influence of the medication and mugging Salem's men down at the dock. Hope was later convicted of her crimes, including an attack on Bo, and sentenced to prison. Bo couldn't let the mother of his children go to prison, so the couple escaped, going on the run. Hope, Bo and Ciara eventually returned to Salem.
Bo was put on an assignment with the ISA, so Hope is left in Salem to take care of Ciara. Hope meets Aiden Jennings and his son Chase after Father Matt informs Hope that Ciara and Chase got into a fight at school. Hope and Aiden’s first meeting does not go well and the two parents openly dislike each other. Father Matt then decides to have Hope and Adien work as a team in the church bake sale and then in the town’s annual anniversary gala. The two are now more civil with each other after Hope saves Chase from a mugger who wanted the boy's phone. Could this turn into more than just a platonic relationship for Hope?
