DAYS Ben & Ciara Wed: What Did You Think of the Nuptials & Its Explosive Aftermath? (PHOTOS)

Photo: JPI

On Wednesday and Thursday, Days of our Lives delivered the Cin wedding as Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara Brady (Victoria Konefal) finally tied-the-knots, and of course, like a juicy, soapy nuptial in Salem, it came with: bumps in the road, a gorgeous ceremony featuring heartfelt vows and … an explosion that rocked the church and detoured the young couple’s happiness.

DAYS rolled out the red carpet for this one complete with many extras, a huge church gathering, quite the wedding dress for Victoria Konefal to wear, and emotional performances by the on-screen bride and groom.

Shortly after Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) pronounced the two, husband and wife, and as Ben is waiting for his bride to begin their lives as newlyweds together, … as she approaches him in the vestibule of the church, a bomb goes off, and Ben is caught in the explosion.

Watch some of the images from the ‘Photo Album’ of Ben and Ciara’s wedding below.

Absolutely loved this wedding and thought it was probably the best wedding I have ever seen on soaps with tear jerking vows and performances. The entire cast and crew just did a fantastic job! Love #Cin

Loved the wedding but why go and spoil things for Ben and Ciara?I think Days bombed out on this one.

Awesome wedding! I loved the slow motion action on the opening of Thursday’s episode. We know who set the bomb. Clyde Weston, but Claire will be blamed and shipped back to BayView, is it? What would be really more interesting is if DAYS killed off Ben. Then, in the fall, Hope and Rafe run off to start their new chapter of their lives with Ciara. I thought I read that Ciara was also rumored to be leaving. That’s why I think it would be more impacted if Ben died in the explosion, but we know Ben escaped somehow. Poor Claire… Read more »

I don’t know if Claire will be blamed. Why would she want to endanger her other family members? Plus, building a bomb is complicated. I know kids have done it, etc., but I hope they see this clears Claire of the other incidents.

Killing Ben off would make more sense than what they’re actually doing…. which is ReRon letting his favorite OLTL pet come back and hog all the airtime again.

Not to say he won’t end up dead anyway, because there wouldn’t be much point in him hanging around once Ciara’s left town.

I loved the wedding but I felt very cheated that we didn’t get a first dance, a cake, and the wedding night.

Love the wedding. The bit where confetti rained down on them was beautiful. Then with Ciara reaching for Ben–love.

I thought it was well-done and had me wanting to see more.

I was thinking Clyde is behind it and the other things. He’s mad he didn’t get an invite. 🙂

Now, where’s Ben?

And I really hope Victoria is not leaving. She’s faulous.

I wondered whether it’s an Orpheus bomb, like the one Hope carried out of Marlena’s penthouse. But I think Eve or Eduardo might have taken Ben! Payback for Paige?

Loved the wedding but the aftermath was just what we expected. I can only watch so much of the maniacal bitch Eve and her torturing of Ben, then it’s adious DOOL for me!

It’s been fun Salem. I’ll love you all forever. ✌🏼💙. Thank you to NBC, to everyone involved, and most of all to the fans that were along for the ride w/ this crazy character. You’re amazing.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as we know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
