Ciara has only been back in Salem for a few months on Days Of Our Lives (DOOL), but she already has multiple grudges against Claire.
Ciara (Victoria Konefal) can add Claire (Olivia Rose Keegan) breaking up Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and Rafe’s (Galen Gering) wedding, and beating Ciara in the Bella contest – by one measly vote! – to her previous grudge.
Remember that one, regarding Claire keeping the letter Ciara wrote telling Theo (Kyler Pettis) how she felt about him.
So Ciara has a lot of forgiving to do. The question is, should she do it? Almost 12,000 voters tried to settle the issue!
No, 70% of you shout definitively. Why should she? Claire has done nothing but provoke Ciara in order to get her own way. Claire never thinks about anyone but herself, so why should Ciara?
May the best woman win. And you don’t win by showing weakness. Ciara may bear the last name Brady, but she is also a Kiriakis. They know that better than most.
Forgive and Forget
On the other hand, Ciara and Claire are family, 29% of the audience reminds. (It’s hard to remember, but Ciara is technically Claire’s aunt.) And family forgives (unless they are Kiriakis(es), which both girls are).
Plus, it’s not as if Ciara has led a pure and noble life. She’s made mistakes and hurt people, especially when she felt trapped and was hurting herself.
Ciara lashed out at her mother and Rafe when she first got back to town because she felt like they were deliberately forgetting Bo (Peter Reckell). Well, try to see the world from Claire’s point of view – both her parents, Shawn and Belle, seem to be deliberately forgetting her.
Claire has her reasons for being such a bitch. And those reasons ought to be good enough to convince Ciara to forgive her… eventually.
