They grow up so fast! On Days of Our Lives (DOOL), Theo was born in 2003, Ciara and Claire in 2006 (which makes aunt and niece the same age; yeah, the show doesn’t bring up that technical relationship too much).
And yet here they all are, frisky teens caught up in a love triangle, just like their parents – and grandparents and great-grandparents – before them.
Theo (Kyler Pettis) grew up with Ciara. They were best friends. Eventually, Theo wanted more. They tried dating for a while, and helped each other through some stressful family situations (are there any other kind in Salem?). But then Ciara (Vivian Jovanni) dumped him, and Claire (Olivia Rose Keegan) moved in.
Now Ciara wants Theo back. She wrote him a letter saying as much, except Claire intercepted it. Of course, in the end, the choice is Theo’s. Whom should he pick? A full 6,000 viewers played matchmaker.
Ciara’s parents, Bo (Peter Reckell) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso), fell in love at first sight when Hope was a teen and, despite multiple detours and deaths here and there, kept finding their way back to each other over decades.
Now, 70% of fans want to see the same for Theo and Ciara. They think this couple are soul-mates, and if Theo doesn’t see that well – he should look harder!
On the other hand, 23% of you don’t expect a teenage boy to meet the love of the rest of his life in high school. Both Ciara and Claire are just girls Theo dated while figuring out who he is, what he wants, and who he intends to be. Theo needs to mature before he can think about long-term entanglements.
Claire’s parents, Belle (Martha Madison) and Shawn also met in high school, marrying and divorcing other people as they repeatedly broke up and reunited.
Their most recent separation was just last year. Claire needs some good news and happiness in her life, and 8% of the audience believes Theo is just the guy to deliver it!
