Ben is hated by all of Salem but when he saved Ciara’s life on Days of Our Lives (DOOL), it seemed like a new super couple might be on the horizon — but are fans on board?
In some ways it’s classic bad boy meets good girl and that’s usually a no-brainer recipe for success on a soap. But this bad boy is beyond bad — having killed multiple times. That bit of it is a little unusual even by soap standards.
Is Ben’s (Robert Scott Wilson) killer past too much for fans of Ciara (Victoria Konefal) to handle? Could they love these two as a romantic couple? Soap Hub asked this very question, and you certainly didn’t hold back. Find out the results now.
Bring On Cin
After over 8,000 votes were counted, 63% are all for this hopeful romance blossoming into a heartfelt love story. You see shades of Bo (Peter Reckell) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso), Ciara’s parents, in their dynamic and that makes Bope fans super happy.
After all, there were few couples in all of soapdom, never mind DAYS, who could rival their romantic love story. While Bo wasn’t hated by all of Salem, he wasn’t liked by Doug (Bill Hayes), Hope’s very protective father. He thought Bo was bad for his baby girl.
Now Hope is in that role of dissenter and it’s only going to push Ciara further into Ben’s orbit. This is such a classic soap story and you’re so ready for it.
No Cin Here
For the other 37%, you’re aghast that DAYS would even consider this pairing. You were all aboard for Ciara’s sweet romance with Tripp (Lucas Adams). That pairing was the sweet first love kind of romance you wanted for Ciara and that she so richly deserved after all Chase put her through.
While you can see the appeal in theory of Cin, his crimes are too horrible for you to accept these two as a couple. There is no way he will ever be accepted by her mother, never mind society as a whole. You don’t want that kind of life for Ciara.
