DAYS Ben and Ciara Finally Share A Kiss! Are #Cin The Hottest Duo On Daytime?

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

It finally happened this week on Days of our Lives!  Former serial killer, Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson) and the daughter of the police commissioner, Ciara Brady (Victoria Konefal), shared a passionate and sweet lip-lock.

Now with it clear that Ciara has given in to her feelings for Ben, by first admitting them to herself, and then to Ben, the road to happiness is sure not to be easy for this striking duo, as everybody wants the young woman away from this bad boy.

But in true soap opera tradition, we tend to root for the couple who overcome every obstacle to be together.  Who doesn’t love the guy from the wrong side of the tracks and the rich girl storylines on daytime?  This is certainly a very big twist on that, given Ben’s horrific past, but it’s working with the television audience, and Rob and Victoria’s portrayal has sky-rocketed them to even more popularity.

This week, in front of the Brady Pub, and in key scenes, Ciara thinks she’s too broken to be loved after her mess with Tripp (Lucas Adams). Ben reminds her she should never apologize for who she is. He then kisses her, and she drops her motorcycle helmet.

So, what do you think of #Cin? Are they set to become one of the most memorable duos in soaps?  Let us know via the comment section below, and make sure to check out our interview with Rob and Victoria from Day of Days 2018 from earlier this month, as well.

YES – this tantalizing STIR ALL the senses ; are

I pegged from the very start.. Cierra Alice without doubt is the reawakening of Erika Kane

period

the chemistry with Rob Scot Wilson – AND – Victoria Konefal

DANG – if ever a couple LOOK GOOD together AND act their arse off… these two do

which should sting and embarrass Frank Valentini for his imagination, has none… of what he thinks daytime is. he certainly will never bring Michael Easton and Finola Hughes alive.. DOA and upchuck is – barf bag again with Sonny and Carly @GH… show over their

from the get go.. these two reeled Tennessee Williams and just upped the ante on NEWBIE beginnings… this is adult; this is millennial; this is serial recipe

@Ron Carlivati… PLEASE give Tripp a solid good storyline… get him involved with step mom Kayla.. ANd I can rest easy… if he’s featured getting in the way … he’s bigger than that. Unless … she’s preggers already.

GOOD STUFF @DAYS

Love Ben & Ciara, Hope needs to get off her High Horse and start taking care of Real Cases!! Don’t like who she has become. Personally a lot of Stories on Days are Stupid & I think Ron is Ruining Days Of Our Lives!! This was a number one show for many years now we are in Last place!!

Ridiculous pairing. Another lame attempt from ReRon to turn a serial killer into some sort of romantic lead character. He failed miserably with Frodd “Baldwin” on GH, and this will also fail.

Bo Brady is not in Hell, but I imagine right now he’s not happy about his little girl being anywhere near this psycho murderer. If he was here, I’d definitely give him a weekend pass to Salem to sort this business out. Hope sure as Hell isn’t going to do it with Rafe holding her back. (Rafe should be paying more attention to his demented little sister anyway)

I think Days is dicing with death with this pairing!

Yes they are good actors, yes they work well together, yes they’re good looking and some people drool over them …

But so what? Good drama begins with a great script, and far from being great scripting, this is an abandonment of sanity! It’s represents the dawn of and Trumpian and Brexitian storytelling on Days, where facts don’t matter, and its all just a game to see what they can get away with!

Can they get away with it? Can they?! The ratings went DOWN when they debuted!

He murdered a bunch of people? Let’s have the young female protagonist not give a damn about his victims losing their lives in terror, their rotting corpses, and their (her!) bereft families, and have her touched by his sensitivity, and be outraged if anyone should ever mention the the the the murders!

What value the characters on Days? What value is their storytelling world, their show? Clearly not as valuable as oh Ben Weston!

I hope Days realize that for many valuable viewers this don’t-mind-the-elephant-in-the-room-ism that Days has embraced is a turn off before it is too late.

EVERYONE knows scripts are the foundation of everything, which is why this is Trumpian and Brexitian, because Days have abandoned principled scripting and are gambling the house on a game of can-we-get-away-with-it?!!

I no longer watch DOOl; but, I have to say, these two look as though they have got chemistry! Today, there are VERY few daytime couples that have heat and chemistry! My old-time favorites are Frisco and Felicia and Sonny and Brenda. I couldn’t wait to tune-in back then!

Any couple with Robert is going to be scorching. This guy has it all…no wonder Y&R didn’t grab him. They prefer colorless, talentless, and/or obnoxious actors/characters. So glad Ben is being redeemed.

Noooooo…..just NO!

I will never accept a female falling in love with a serial killer unless she is just as deranged as he is!

Yesssss…. just yes!

I prefer Tripp with Ciara over Ben. Ben killed Ciaras cousin Will( allegedly)and tormented Abby and murdered two young women one Rafes sister and her cousin JJ s girlfriend aswell as her other cousin Erics girlfriend.
The chemistry is hot yes but Ben hits to close to home and Ciara falling for someone whos caused her family so much pain is plain sick and twisted.
Tripp also has his own demons and he stood by Ciara when she was scared to make love. Tripp and Ciara were so sweet together. Ciara has no loyalty to Ben or her family.

Boop

That’s life! Get over it.

Ciara can’t help it that Ben was the one who found her, took care of her and listened to her, Damien.

“From the wrong side of the tracks”? So, that’s how we are to see Ben, a stone-cold killer? Come on!
DAYS is going down the same rabbit hole that swallowed up GH when TPTB (and the writers?) “fell in love” with all the killers, wrote them into a corner then “fell in love” with all the killer characters like Sonny, Jason, Ava, etc.
No where to go but down, literally! Goodby, Days. See you (maybe) when you get over the madness. PS And bring back “Patch,” soon. Stephen Nichols, we miss you.

Stephen

I agree – no where to go but down!

Days is gas-lighting the viewers, over and over, and has been doing so from the beginning of this story.

In the serial killer arc Ben wasn’t sick, rather he planned and executed the pre-meditated murders of two women too FRAME A GUY he was jealous of: cold, rational, planned murders. Then he killed his friend and his fiancée’s midwife to prevent his discovery: two more rational and cold-blooded murders! And the guy he framed by murdering people nearly died because of his actions!

LOL! Days wanted to turn away from the darkness of the Griffley Daysaster, and now they’re gaslighting their own viewers!!

And just to prove that Days know exactly what they are doing, they have been simultaneously running another story where one character is actually gaslighting one of Ben’s surviving victims! FFS Days! Get a grip!

Hell in a handbasket is the likely trajectory for ratings if they keep this nonsense up!

Jillie
Jillie

I agree.

4ever DAYS

Ciara and Ben (Cin/Ciara and The Serial Killer) is DAYS best new duo in decades!!

WARNING: People should steer clear of serial killers and under no circumstance should they become romantically involved with a killer.

With that said, this is a soap, an alternate universe to reality. They have incredible chemistry and DAYS would be stupid to ignore it.

Yes, Ben killed three people, four if you count Will, but he changed when Ciara entered his life. She was a wreck, literally and figuratively. Ben was responsible for her care and welfare which helped him overcome his demons. He doesn’t want to hurt anyone and Ciara will help him succeed.

Now, it may be revealed that Ben did indeed start the fire which put Ciara’s life in jeopardy, but he was off his meds and that was in the beginning of their relationship.

DAYS has me right where they want me, wanting a CINful story!

They’re great together and I’m proud to be a Cinner!!

Boop

They do have chemistry; however, I still don’t believe that Ben started the fire.

Ciara sure looked hot in that burning cabin…Ciara and Ben have a killer romance-lol

Hey, Jimmy, It’s hard to determine if some viewers are hot and bothered or burning mad. If they want reality, they shouldn’t watch TV. At least the angry viewers reality is represented by characters on DAYS who are against Ciara being with Ben. Would they rather have Ciara help Ben or go on a murder spree with him?

Jimh

they could rob banks together…the next bonnie and clyde…lol

Being a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, I’d be every bit as crazy as Hope is, but its a soap, and I’m enjoying every minute of these two beautiful young people, falling in love, against all odds. One can only hope that Ben is cured, with no relapses, but we know that can change on a whim of some nutty writer.

Jillie
Jillie

Yeah going to work for Dimera is really going to cure (he was never sick just a stone cold killer) and redeem him. Right.

The chemistry has won me over. Major kudos to Rob Wilson and Victoria Konefal. Not many couples have the type of old school chemistry that is coming thorough loud and clear with these two. I’m all for their pairing but I’m not crazy about the writing so far, a lot of missed beats. It seems their airtime is finally picking up so I’m hopeful, but still a bit skeptical this writing team can see this through.

Jussie Smollett Scenes Cut From ‘Empire’ In Light Of Attack Investigation

As of Tuesday, the production of Fox’s hit series, Empire has slashed Jussie Smollett’s upcoming scenes following reports that the suspicion is now on him for allegedly staging the “hate” attack he reported to the Chicago PD back on January 29th.

According to production sources viaTMZ: Jussie was supposed to have nine scenes and a big musical performance in the second-to-last episode of Season 5,  Now, five scenes and the musical number have been axed.  Smollett’s character is also no longer the focus of his remaining four scenes, which will now feature an ensemble of characters.

The actor/singer who portrays Jamal Lyon will be working Friday and possibly Thursday but won’t be rehearsing.

The Empire writers are said to have been scrambling over the last 24 hours to revise this season’s scripts.

All of this despite despite strongly expressed renewed support by Empire showrunner Brett Mahoney on February 17th.  The goal now is said to be to reduce Smollett’s role both in dramatic stints and musical performances.

Empire returns for the remainder of its fifth season on March 13.

Smollett claims he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack near his Chicago apartment, but things took a turn when he may have paid two friends to help stage the assault.

This case is said to be going before a Grand Jury as early as today.

What are your thoughts on the latest developments in the Smollett case and Empire reducing his appearances for the remainder of the season? Comment below.

TODAY: Y&R’s Melody Thomas Scott Visits ‘The Talk’ As Her 40th Anniversary Week As Nikki Newman Kicks-Off

On today’s broadcast of the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, the ladies welcome Y&R icon, Melody Thomas Scott, who this week celebrates her incredible 40th anniversary with the show as Nikki Newman.

During her segment, Melody chats on Wednesday’s upcoming standalone episode where Nikki is in jail reflecting on her life.  Wednesday is also the exact date of Thomas Scott’s 40th anniversary with the CBS Daytime drama series.

During the segment Melody fills the ladies in on the “All About Nikki” episode, as she relates:  “I was so thrilled that they did this. It’s truly, really the life of Nikki in the entirety of the episode. It’s all about Nikki. And she’s in jail. She’s writing a letter to her grandchildren so that she can explain who she really is, how she got to where she is.  I have to narrate it, I’ve got a voice-over, a long voice-over. And then, as I’m thinking about all these different times in my life, I can’t believe I’m referring to me as her, her life, then we see the flashbacks. And for the longtime viewers, even current viewers, it is such a trip down memory lane. I mean, you are on that train and you’re not getting off…all of the clips have not been seen since they were first aired.”

In addition, Melody addresses the passing of her longtime co-star and friend, Kristoff St. John relating:  “I adored him. We all adored him. There was something very unique and magical about him. He would just draw you into his wonderful world. And all of his bear hugs, I can’t believe I’ll never get a bear hug. Going to any kind of event, any party, the first thing I said when I got there was ‘Where’s Kristoff?’ I want to find Kristoff, I want to be with him, I want to be in his air space. Because that’s the kind of guy he was, and I think that came through on camera. I think everybody sensed that, I mean everybody adored him.”

So, will you be checking out Melody on today’s episode of The Talk (2PMEST and 1PM PST) today? Comment below.
