Son Set: Should Ben Weston Return To Days of our Lives For Clyde?

Or will he regret it for the rest of his life?

Days of our Lives Ben Weston and Clyde

Now everybody knows that Clyde Weston killed Abigail Deveraux DiMera on Days of our Lives — because he actually wanted to kill Belle Black in order to threaten EJ DiMera…which all makes an amazing lack of sense. It could mean something for Ben Weston, though.

Days of our Lives Polling

Because of Clyde’s (James Read) latest misdeeds, should Ben (Robert Scott Wilson), the guy who has finally forgiven his father for a hellacious childhood that turned him into a serial killer, return to Salem? Soap Hub asked, and here’s what you said.

Ben Weston, Face Your Fears

Almost half of you, 45%, believe it’s important for Ben to face his demons, otherwise known as his dad. Clyde accused Abigail (Marci Miller) of being the reason Ben lost his mind. The childhood abuse was just a…preamble? When Ciara Brady Weston (Victoria Konefal) was pregnant, Ben was terrified that little Bo would turn out to be a violent criminal like him…and like Clyde.

Ben needs to come face to face with Clyde so he can see that what happened to him isn’t genetic. Clyde is a bad man. Ben was a bad man, too… who got help and became a good one. If he’s a good father to Bo Brady Weston, he can make sure the tot never follows in (their) footsteps.

Confusion Reigns

It would be too confusing, 28% of the audience objects. Obviously, Clyde doesn’t think that Alex Kiriakis (also Robert Scott Wilson) looks anything like his son. And if his son were to return to Salem, we’d have to pretend that we don’t think so either. Which is a bit much to ask of an audience. (Just ask General Hospital and all their recasts with the same actor in different roles. It’s distracting!)

One Way

An almost equal 27%, on the other hand, suggests that Ben just call into Salem…Shawn Douglas Brady (Brandon Beemer) can answer…and then tell the rest of us what he said. It’s splitting the difference.

Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on Peacock+ in the U.S. and The W Network or Global TV App in Canada. For more about what’s coming up in Salem, check out all the latest that’s been posted on DAYS spoilers, and for an in-depth look at the show’s history, click here.
