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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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?

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

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.

General Hospital Set To Pay Tribute To The Late Susan Brown

2018 has taken with it some beloved soap opera veterans.  One of them was GH fan favorite, Susan Brown, who died at 86 of Alzheimer’s at the end of August.

GH viewers remember Susan’s performances as Dr. Gail Adamson Baldwin.  Gail was Monica’s (Leslie Charleson) best friend, and eventually she married Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and was a stepmother to Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner).

Kin took to Twitter last week and revealed that General Hospital taped a tribute to Susan that will be seen in an upcoming episode.

In a tweet, he shared, “A tribute show to Susan shot in the can airing soon!”

With GH’s tape schedule we would presume that sometime in January we will be seeing how GH addresses Susan’s passing and thus the fate of Gail.

So, are you glad to hear GH will be doing something very special to honor Susan?

Do you hope that there are major emotional scenes within it for Kin Shriner and Leslie Charleson?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Network Exec, Angelica McDaniel On Y&R’s Staying Power: “We Have This Award-Winning, Ratings-Generating, Money-Making Show, And It Really Adds Value To CBS.”

This week, The Young and the Restless celebrated 30 years as the number-one rated daytime soap opera.  That is a streak of 1,560 weeks in the top spot.

Angelica McDaniel, executive vp daytime programs and syndicated program development at CBS, spoke to the Hollywood Reporter on what has made this remarkable run; attributing it to strong storytelling and a cast that includes several beloved veterans who have been around the entire time.

The executive noted that while other soaps over the years have fallen by the wayside, and even though we are down to only four surviving network soap operas, that Y&R will be around with no end in sight.

McDaniel stated, “We have this award-winning, ratings-generating, money-making show, and it really adds value to CBS. We expect it be a part of our lineup in the future.”

She also added, “The Young and the Restless has some of the best actors in the industry — not in soaps, not in daytime, but in television. We have iconic, legacy characters that have been on our show for decades. Melody Thomas Scott will be celebrating her 40th year on the show in February. Peter Bergman just reached his 30th anniversary in November. Eric Braeden started in 1980. We just have an incredible arsenal of actors who are so talented and play these characters so well that you don’t even realize they’re characters. They become people who are part of your life, part of your daily existence.”

As for the continual investment and ways the audience watches the show on various platforms, McDaniel expresed: “The great thing about daytime television is we have loyal, passionate viewers, and they really like to tune in day and date. They want to stick with their stories and see what’s happening today. … Having said that, The Young and the Restless is also one of the top streamed shows on CBS.com. As trends evolve, we are where our viewers are, and we’re making shows readily accessible so they can get their fix and follow their stories.”

So, what do you think about Y&R? Will it remain if and when all other soaps have come to theirconclusion? Do you think it will continue on for years to come, given its position at number #1? Comment below!
