No one can claim things didn’t get hot when Ben and Ciara first crossed paths on Days Of Our Lives. On the one hand, there was the sizzling chemistry between them. On the other, there was the literal fire Claire set.
She was the rebellious Chief of Police’s daughter. He was a serial killer. Sparks flew. All of Salem was against them. Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) tried to frame him. It was a case of you and me against the world.
Now… not so much. Sure, Victor (John Aniston) wants him killed. But Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) looked at him all judgy-like. And, sure, Ben (Robert Scott Wilson) is whining about being in baby David’s life. But Ciara (Victoria Konefal) looked at him all love-like. Neither is a major conflict. Which brings us to today’s question: Is this couple boring you? How almost 6000 voted!
