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.

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!

Damien

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
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?

Jimh

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.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom Reveals TV & Film Production Restart June 12th; But May Not Include LA County

There was some significant signs that Hollywood and the state of California’s show business production looks to be gearing up for a restart after all TV and film production was halted a few months ago as the coronavirus pandemic hit the state, our country, and the globe.

The reopening for production may not include L.A. County, however, which is the epicenter of the state’s show business production.

According to Deadline: On Friday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that the state could begin TV and film production as early as June 12th.  While the California Department of Public Health released the following guidelines:  “Music, TV and film production may resume in California, recommended no sooner than June 12, 2020 and subject to approval by county public health officers within the jurisdictions of operations following their review of local epidemiological data including cases per 100,000 population, rate of test positivity, and local preparedness to support a health care surge, vulnerable populations, contact tracing and testing. To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, productions, cast, crew and other industry workers should abide by safety protocols agreed by labor and management, which may be further enhanced by county public health officers. Back office staff and management should adhere to Office Workspace guidelines published by the California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Industrial Relations, to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.”

For LA County,  on Friday, the same day the guidelines were announced they saw a slight increase in hospitalizations, which could cause delays in getting production started.  “This has been a slight increase over the last three days in the number of people hospitalized,” said Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer, “and we’ll need to make sure that we’re not starting to see a significant increase in the number of people requiring hospitalizations.”

Newsom has said modifications to regional guidance would be allowed so long as there are attestations at the county level that there are adequate plans in place should a rise in COVID cases be seen again.   As of May 18, when L.A. filed its attestation, the county had a stable or declining number of patients hospitalized for COVID-19.   However, there has been an uptick in cases as of Friday which could effect the production restart in Hollywood as well as the noted uptick in hospitalizations; all of which are measures in the protocol guidelines that need to be on the decline for things to move forward.

So the question remains: if there is a surge in Los Angeles in COVID-19 cases production could again be delayed getting started back up and running? So what do you think about the June 12th date for the state of California to start TV and film production? Do you hope your favorite soaps get back into production as soon as possible, or do you want to make extra sure that all your favorites will be safe and sound when they tape new episodes?

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
