Rolf puts his plan into action. ROLF: You and she have a lot in common.
Meanwhile, there’s finally an update on Joey’s condition. ALANIS: What’s going on?
And at the start of the week, Bo breaks his silence. BO: Here it goes.
Where has he been all this time? SHANE: I think we’d all like to know the answer to that.
Find out this week on THE MELASWEN PARADOX!
So Rolf wants to use Jan somehow but I don't get why she would factor into Rolf and Megan's plans?
An update in Joey's condition well if he wakes up, he no doubt has to have some sort of brain damage. Especially after an explosion like that and he sustained a significant head injury too, he has to have amnesia, he has to given he was in mid air and a piece of the debris hit Joey in the head so hard and he went unconscious to the point of being in a coma at the hospital.
Bo is about to tell them all what happened but it is plausible to have been taken by the DiMeras. He supposedly had a brain tumor right, died in Hope's arms. Megan's people could have been waiting for him at the hospital and then they could have taken his body to a facility. If they did, Rolf could have shrunk Bo's tumor or even gotten rid of the tumor altogether. Then Bo in that time could have had amnesia when he was with Megan as her captive but then could have remembered who he was and then if he did, it could explain his escape.
Shane being ISA of course wants answers especially if Megan is involved. But Shane if you are ISA, you must have known Megan was alive. Or if you didn't, your director must have known and kept it under wraps.

BRADY PUB SHANE: Yes, I think we’d all like to know the answer to that. Several others nodded or voiced their agreement. BO: It’s a long story. STEVE: Well, we’ve got nothing but time. HOPE: Plus, you did tell Aiden and I that you’d explain everything once we got the family together. CIARA: And here we all are. Bo nodded. BO: You’re right, I did. Well, here it goes. It all started back in 2016. Back when I died.
HUDSON STREET DINER ROLF: That may be true, however- MEGAN: It is true, Rolf. Oh, I may have allowed Bo a brief respite. A moment of happiness to be rejoined by his family. But when the right moment strikes, all of that shall be taken away, and he will be mine. ROLF: You know his family will not be pleased about this. Megan laughed humorlessly. MEGAN: As if I care what the Bradys think. ROLF: All the same, it might be easier if you have an ally. MEGAN: That’s why I’ve returned to Salem, to reunite with André and become close to my other siblings. ROLF: I mean an ally on the Brady side. Look, Jan feels about Shawn-Douglas Brady the way you feel about Bo. If you were to help her come up with a plan to ensure Shawn-Douglas was on her side- MEGAN: That would be one more member of Bo’s family that wouldn’t be fighting to get Bo back, because he would be on the same side as us. ROLF: Precisely. MEGAN: It seems I’ve underestimated you, Rolf. I can see now why André keeps you around. Now, to think of how to approach Shawn. Jan brought Rolf and Megan’s food to the table. JAN: Sorry, I didn’t mean to overhear, but…did you just say Shawn? As in Shawn Brady? MEGAN: I did, dear. Does that name mean something to you? JAN: Shawn is one of the best men in the world! He and I used to be together in high school. We still would be if it weren’t for that little sainted Belle Black. MEGAN: I see. What’s your name, dear? JAN: Jan Spears. MEGAN: Well, Jan, take a seat. It seems we have some things to discuss. JAN: I can’t. I mean, I can’t right now. I want to. I could talk about Shawn all day if given the chance. But, my boss would get super pissed at me if he saw me taking a break without letting me know first. MEGAN: Well, we can’t have that. We’ll have to discuss things another time, it seems. Megan went into her purse, pulled out a card and handed it to Jan. MEGAN: When you have a few free minutes, call that number and arrange to meet me. I’m sure it will be a fascinating discussion. JAN: I will. Um, what’s your name? MEGAN: The name is Megan Hathaway. This is my- ROLF (with bad American accent): I am her husband, Professor Charles Putnam. MEGAN: My husband, yes. We have different last names for professional reasons. Lovely to meet you, Jan Spears. Jan and Megan shook hands. JAN: You too. So, how do you know Shawn? MEGAN: All in good time, dear. Now, you’d best get back to work. We don’t want that boss of yours getting angry with you. JAN: Right. Um, I’ll call you. Jan walked away. Megan and Rolf smiled at each other.
I really don't like the idea of Jan and Megan teaming up together.
I'm not sure that I believe this is really Bo. Megan is way to certain of herself that she will get him back. I know she's always that way, but there is definitely more wrong with the current "Bo" than anyone knows.

BRADY PUB BO: I was legally dead, for about an hour, maybe slightly less. Hope, you were there when it happened. A lot of the rest of you were there earlier that day, too. Hope nodded. BO: Well, shortly after I was declared dead, the nurses came to take me away. Turns out, though, they didn’t take my body to the morgue. SHAWN-D: Where’d they take it? BO: A compound out in the middle of the Mojave Desert. A compound owned by the DiMeras. JOHN: The DiMeras, of course. BO: Well, one specific DiMera. Stefano’s oldest and favorite daughter, Megan Hathaway. Several people gasped. John raised an eyebrow. SHANE: Megan Hathaway is alive? BO: Shouldn’t be a surprise. HOPE: That’s true. Like Bo said, she was Stefano’s favorite daughter. Plus, she’d hardly be the first DiMera spawn to rise from the dead. SHANE: That is true. CIARA: I’m sorry, who’s Megan Hathaway? Aside from what you’ve already said, I mean. BO: Megan is a former friend of mine. Actually, a bit more than a friend. She and I went to high school together, and we dated before your mother and I met, Ciara. We broke up after high school when I entered the Merchant Marines. Her mother didn’t like me much. She made it look to Megan like I had left her, and to me like she had left me. A few years after I came back to Salem, so did she. By that time, I was madly in love with Hope here. Megan couldn’t handle that. She went crazy, tried to force me to get back together with her by claiming we had a child together. When that didn’t work, she tried to kill Hope. HOPE: She would have succeeded, too, if it weren’t for Larry Welch. That’s probably the only good thing that man ever did. SHAWN-D: I’m getting some serious Jan Spears flashbacks here. BO: You’re not wrong. The similarities between Megan and Jan are eerie. Anyway, it turns out Megan survived Larry electrocuting her, and she went into hiding for thirty years. Part of that time, she spent recovering, with Stefano making sure that she got back to full health. The rest, she bided her time, occasionally spying on us, looking for her moment to strike. According to her, she came close to it a few times, but when she found out that I was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor, she found her chance. CHELSEA: So these fake nurses, they took you to this Megan Hathaway lady. How did she cure your brain tumor? BO: The prisms. CHELSEA: The what, now? HOPE: Many years ago, Stefano faked having a brain tumor in order to convince Megan and André to help him find three prisms. The prisms were created by scientist Victor Chorvat, the father of Larry Welch. According to Larry, if the right person used them, the prisms could create cures for all manner of diseases. BO: Exactly. Even after Stefano’s ruse was exposed, Megan never gave up looking for the prisms. Once she was healthy enough, she sent out some lackeys to find the prisms. By the time I died, she had retrieved all three. She had a scientist, some guy named Belman- CIARA; Belman? Isn’t that… Ciara looked at Trix. BO: What? STEVE: Vivian Alamain has a doctor by the name of Vincent Belman. According to her, Belman was a protege of our old buddy, Dr. Wilhelm Rolf, until he got tired of being an underling and struck out on his own. BO: Sounds like the guy I met. He did mention Rolf once or twice. So, this Dr. Belman, he used the prisms to bring me back and cure the brain tumor. Megan also had him do a bit of poking around in my mind, made it so I would listen to her demands. SHAWN-D: She didn’t keep you in a cage, did she? BO: Not exactly. My cage was more metaphorical than yours. I was, essentially, her slave, but I had freedom to move around the compound. ROMAN: So how’d you get back here nearly seven years later? BO: I’m not gonna lie, it took me a while. When I woke up, Megan and Belman had already done the brainwashing. But even when I woke up, I felt like something was missing. I was in a relationship, albeit a forced relationship with Megan, but it was like it wasn’t the real me. I didn’t know what I was doing. Sorry, Fancy Face. HOPE: Bo, you didn’t know what you were doing anymore than I did when Stefano made me think I was Princess Gina. BO: Still, even though I was in this relationship, I felt like it was hollow. Like there was something missing, something big. Then I started getting memories. At first, they were just little flashes of things. Sights, sounds that I couldn’t make much sense of. Over time, they started getting stronger, more vivid. Then one night, about a week or two ago, Megan and I were sitting on the patio of the compound, listening to the radio as we watched the sunset. It was some oldies station. They played that song, Fancy Face. Our song. CLICK HERE to listen for the rest of the scene. BO: And everything came back. Pretty quickly, I figured out what was going on. But I didn’t let on that I knew. Megan excused herself to freshen up. She tried to convince me to come with her. Instead, I convinced her to let me stay out on the patio. I don’t know if seven years of having me constantly by her side made her soft, but she actually bought it. Once she was inside, I booked it outta there as fast as I could. I didn’t have any I.D. or money, all of my things had been left at the hospital seven years ago. So, over the next week and a half, I slowly made my way back here. Once I got those memories back, Fancy Face, I knew I had to come back to you as quick as I could. Back to you and our family.
Hearing Bo's entire ordeal for over 7 years and hearing what he had to go through now not just at Megan's hands but hearing Vivian's man Belman's involvement and the prisms...it all does make sense that his brain tumor would be cured
And then the brainwashing too but that just puts Bo in danger because Megan could try to find him and if she does, then what? Megan can turn him again
But I wonder if everyone else now will just be even more motivated to find Megan and put her in prison or kill her?
heroicmuse I mean his story is pretty believable especially if Belman is involved and they did use the prisms to bring Bo back from the brink of literal death and cure his brain tumor. I mean if the prisms cured Stefano of a brain tumor decades ago, the same could happen for Bo.
Not to mention it struck a cord with Trix because Belman is connected to her family namely through Vivian.
But if Megan knows exactly where Bo is, it isn't like she can grab him herself because she's still in hiding too.

Wednesday - 6/7
BRADY PUB Now that Bo had revealed all to his family, everyone stood around mingling. ROMAN: Sami and Lucas would’ve been here, but Sydney’s got a school dance tonight that Sami’s helping with. And Allie’s moving her stuff out of her dorm for the summer. Lucas is helping her. BO: I totally get it. Still, we’ll have to get together sometime so we can see each other. I can’t believe Allie’s old enough to be living in a dorm! ROMAN: Yeah, I can hardly believe it myself. Gotta say, it is so damn good to see you, little brother. BO: You too, Ro. You too. Roman and Bo hugged.
JENNIFER: Even though I know more than a handful of people who’ve done it in the past, it’s still a shock when somebody we thought was dead turns up alive again. Frankie nodded. FRANKIE: Yeah, it sure is. Jen, you and Hope are close. Do you know much about this Megan Hathaway? JENNIFER: Only by reputation. Hope’s told me a lot about her over the years. She died right around the time that I dropped out of boarding school. Or, apparently faked her death. FRANKIE: Gotcha. Just curious. JENNIFER: If she is back though, and she’s the reason Bo’s still alive… FRANKIE: I know that look. What’s on your mind, Jen? JENNIFER: I’m worried about Hope. From what she’s told me, Megan isn’t the type of person to give up on what she wants. If she really is back, and still obsessed with Bo after all these years, there could be trouble ahead.
CHELSEA: I can’t believe it, after all this time. BO: I know, Chels. Look at you! You and Max, runnin’ this place, with a son. He’s adorable, by the way. CHELSEA: He is. BO: And I think it’s beautiful that you named him after Zack. CHELSEA: And you, too. His full name is Isaac Beauregard Brady. Bo and Chelsea hugged. CHELSEA: I’ve missed you so much! BO: Kid, you’ve got no idea! Ciara cleared her throat. Bo pulled her into the hug. BO: You too, Little One. CIARA: I’ve missed you, too. The three of them broke apart. CIARA: There’s someone I want you to meet. BO: Don’t tell me you’re married with a kid, too? Ciara chuckled slightly. CIARA: No, not quite, anyway. Ciara signaled for Trix to come over. CIARA: This is my Dad. Daddy, this is Trix…my girlfriend. Trix and Bo shook hands. TRIX: Beatrix Alamain. It’s so nice to meet you! Ciara’s told me loads about you! BO: Nice to meet you, too. Alamain, huh? TRIX: Yeah, sorry, I know that’s not exactly a popular name ‘round here. CIARA: But Trix isn’t like Vivian or Lawrence, Dad. BO: Didn’t think she was. And hey, as long as you two are happy, that’s what counts. You just make sure you treat her right, Trix. TRIX: I will, sir.
Kayla’s work phone went off. KAYLA: Dr. Johnson. What? When? Okay, I’ll be down as soon as I can! Thanks! Kayla hung up and grabbed Steve’s arm. KAYLA: We’ve gotta go! STEVE: Whoa, where’s the fire, Sweetness? KAYLA: Steve, we need to get to the hospital, now! STEVE: Is it Joe? What’s going on? KAYLA: I’ll explain on the way. Come on! Steve and Kayla quickly said their goodbyes, then left.
