On Days of our Lives, Ciara has made it clear that she and Ben are never, ever getting back together. She practically used those exact words. And then she added that she has no interest in remembering how it was she came to fall in love with a serial killer, thank you very much.
Days of our Lives Polling
So that’s where Ciara (Victoria Konefal) stands. But how should Ben (Robert Scott Wilson) react? We have helpful suggestions from over 2,000 fans:
Half and Half
Over half of you, 54%, want Ben to double down and continue to try and win Ciara’s love. Now, we don’t mean another attempt to inject her with a mystery serum, and we certainly don’t suggest kidnapping her and taking her to the cabin where they first met. Which does sound like something a desperate Ben would do.
But keeping her out of South Africa seems reasonable. And has he tried kissing her? Lots of sense memory to be unlocked there…
A smaller 27% of the audience expects Ben to be completely crushed by the rejection. And you know what happens to sad men on soap operas. They go looking for comfort in the nearest bed. Which you expect to be Claire’s (Isabel Durant). Ciara currently hates them both, and misery loves company. Plus, if Ciara ends up feeling jealous, well, that’s just a bonus! A triangle is what happens on soaps, too.
Only 19% of the viewers think Ben should respect Ciara’s wishes and keep his distance. The fact is, her memory loss is probably biological. Her brain is swollen or something. Eventually, it will go back down, and she’ll remember the years she lost, which includes Ben.
Slow and steady wins the race and, even though it’s not in the wheelhouse, this is a good opportunity to grow as a person. Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
