DAYS Preview: Ben’s Execution Begins … Will Love & Truth Save the Day?

This week on Days of our Lives it’s a critical one for the love story of Cin, and the fate of Mr. Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson).  For Ben is currently set for execution for the murder of Jordan Ridgeway (Chrishell Stause), a crime he did not commit.

His true love, Ciara ((Victoria Konefal), has been doing all she can to prove his innocence and as viewers saw on last Friday’s cliffhangers, Ciara told Ben that Evan (Brock Kelly) has been lying and that his real name is Christian Maddox.   Now, she is going to try to find him and stop the execution.

Meanwhile, Rafe (Galen Gering) confronted Evan after learning of his criminal background.  Evan admits it and that David is his son. Ciara told Rafe that David’s father’s DNA was at Jordan’s crime scene. Uh-oh!

But next thing you know, Evan has disappeared with David.  Rafe goes after him, while Ciara calls the prison and begs for a stay of execution for Ben.

And then … Evan shows up at the Kiriakis Mansion. Will (Chandler Massey), who has gotten out of the slammer and has reunited with Sonny (Freddie Smith) leaves, so Evan and Sonny can talk.  Sonny admits to Evan that the two are back together and that he is sorry, but Sonny is in for yet another shocker, (in a week of shockers for him), when Evan pulls a gun … on him!

In the NBC preview for this week’s story, Ben is flooded with memories and imagery of his relationship with Ciara as his lethal injection and the execution begins.

But what will happen to Ben? Will Ciara save the day? Will Evan/Christian get his comeuppance? Watch the preview for this week’s DAYS below, and then weigh-in via the comment section below.

Of course Ben will be saved. We’re already dreading the losses of Casey, Chandler, Freddie, and Galen. Surely we can’t lose RSW as well. And I want Evan to stay also.

I am in need of a realistic storyline to rope me back into watching the show. The back-from-the-dead storylines grew stale a year ago. The Ben execution storyline has already been done with Sami. There has to be something that is happening in the real world that doesn’t have to do with a doppelgänger or someone showing up alive. Please make the show stop being about storylines that peaked in the 1980s. Stop writing John and Marlena as love birds. I would love to see a new family join the show and maybe dial back the DiMeras, Bradys and Hortons. New blood to the show might make the show’s ratings climb instead of staying the same or continuing to fall.

I agree & would actually like to see a shift with the Johnson’s taking more of a lead instead of John/Marlena and all their children issues. Maybe bring back Joe or Stephanie. They also need to ship out either Eric/Nicole and/or Brady/Kristen to make room for perhaps a newer family or couple not related.

I thought about Sami’s execution too.

I am enjoying the show.

Watch another show if you don’t want to see the Hortons, Bradys or Dimeras. Go watch young and restless with the abbots if you want realistic storylines. I love Days the way it is.

“”Ben’s Execution Begins … Will Love & Truth Save the Day?

Gosh, I sure hope not.

This arc is about as dumb as Gina/Stefano on so many levels. They should execute his ass for payback for those that he killed/tried to kill and got away with or at least have him think about (as the needle is being put in his arn) how those people he killed must of felt as he was putting the tie around their necks. This is a “reron” of the Sami death row in the early 2000’s. A spin would be if he actually died for his deeds.

Seriously Days! Is Sami administering the lethal drugs? LOL. I can’t.

It has to be a dream or nightmare. Ben can’t be executed!

You right. What the writers should do is save Ben and put that psychopath Gabi behind bars for life.

it’s a for Gabi’s character what she has done no where compares to Ben the “necktie killer”..LOL

Oh, so Gabi should get a pass because she’s a gorgeous woman who has been hard done to? She belongs in prison. I will accept permanent confinement to a psychiatric hospital

Its become a very bad insulting soap under this team of writers and producers and I am actually ashamed of the actors who pretend otherwise and want all to applaud them for inane stories many of which instead of paying tribute to Days past decimate it!

Don’t panic, Momo. I’m trying not to. Ben will be saved, hopefully with an assist from Will. Now that’s a bromance I wish would continue. Even better than Chase and Michael on GH.

Yes, I like Ben and Will’s friendship. And Ciara is Will’s cousin.

How ironic is it that a guy who actually DID commit at least 4 murders is supposedly being executed for the ONE he did NOT commit?

Were the previous murders not worthy of a death sentence? They certainly deserved to die far less than Jordan did.

Never mind the whole thing about him being cellmates and becoming friends with one of his previous murder victims, which would never happen in any actual prison.

Obviously Ben will be saved from an eternal transfer to Hell at the last second, just as it was with Sami, John, and anybody else wrongly condemned to death from Salem.

Wonder Woman Ciara saves the day…Marlena too emotional for Ben who nearly(but really) killed her grandson Will….she really isnt around for Will being released or thinking about Maggie ect

Did RC write the storyline when they were going to execute Todd on OLTL? Just asking the bottom line all soap writers repeat storylines wherever they go been doing it for a long time.

Oh, what a farce!! Not the actors——just the writing.
We all knew Ben would be saved at the very last second and go through some kind of trauma.
I see I am not the only one feeling the pain of watching this child-play—-the first lesson fake-Stefano should have learned was to roll his “R’s”– he finds it difficult to pronounce the name DiMera; as catty as I may sound.
Marlena is Stefano’s queen of the night? Really? Of all the women in the world, why would such a powerful entity settle for Marlena? I guess companionship—–I should introduce Stefano to my spirited grandmother—-almost the same age as Marlena. This entire Rolf thing has gone too far—
I can’t even get started on Hope and her demonstrative eyebrow…. Uffa!!

It’s Ben to long of a time let Ben and Ciara get married. I knew for a long time he was innocent.

Ron Carlivati Reveals When Days of our Lives Episodes From His Head Writing Regime Resume Streaming

Days of our Lives viewers have not been watching material from head writer Ron Carlivati and his writing team for many months. Well, things are about to change.

Circle this Friday, May 31st when the first new script from Carlivati and company will stream on the Peacock soap opera. If you recall, Carlivati had to step away from the writing gig at DAYS due to the writer’s strike, but because the soap tapes at least seven months ahead of air, it is only now that fans will see how the stories shift or finish out that were started by Carlivati.

According to Ron’s conversation with TV Insider, when Carlivati and his team resumed writing the show in late October of 2023, the stories were already written well into 2024. Carlivati explained, “For me, as of us talking right now, the (replacement writers’ material) is still airing, so that has been very tough. I’m just very anxious and eager for our stuff to start airing again.”

Ron explained before the writer’s strike, he and his scribes had written up through the 2023 Thanksgiving episodes. Speaking on how the replacement writers tried to handle stepping in for the regular team, Ron expressed, “I think what they tried to do was move things slowly in the hopes that the strike would end and respect where my storylines were so that I could play them off when we came back. Unfortunately, the strike dragged on, so I understand that the show needed to make story decisions.”

The award-winning writer made clear that, “from January to May (2024), those were not my stories. I had nothing to do with those.”

Having lived through a writer’s strike before (when he was at One Life to Live in 2008), Carlivati explained how he dealt with coming back and adjusting the stories including that the plan was to, “blow things up, jettison anything that I did not like, and get back to a show that I understand and can enjoy and tell. ”

Look for a Carlivati-style ‘wink-wink’ on Friday’s episode. As he puts it, “I did want to make it clear that this was the line of demarcation, that the writers were back and there was a change happening. We have a little nod or two to what was going on in the first day and I think it will be very obvious and clear to the savvy viewer. Luckily, story-wise, certain things were coming to a head already.”

Stay tuned for how Ron resolves a Sloan and Nicole showdown, how Eric will find out he is Jude’s true baby daddy, what happens when the new Gabi returns from Salem from out of the slammer, the Maggie/Konstantin wedding, payback time for Theresa and more.

In addition, and as previously reported, when Carlivati returned, he crafted the series 15,000th episode which is set to air in early December, and will also pay tribute to the late Bill Hayes with the passing of his on-screen beloved character, Doug Williams.

So, glad to know Ron and his team’s material will start to reveal itself this Friday and moving forward on DAYS? Comment below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Eric Says Goodbye to Baby Jude

The Monday, May 27th of Peacock’s Days of our Lives, picked right back up for the emotional payoff of Nicole (Arianne Zucker) finally getting her biological son, Jude, back in her arms and learning it from Eric (Greg Vaughan).

As the episode began, Eric (with Jude in tow) is at the front door of the DiMera mansion. Eric recounts Sloan’s (Jessica Serfaty) confession. Nicole (Arianne Zucker) says she knew from the first time she held Jude that this was her child. She says a parent knows deep in their soul. Eric looks at her with tears in his eyes, as he thinks Jude is now EJ’s (Dan Feuerriegel) biological son. That’s a lie into itself and EJ is covering the truth of that along with Sloan.

Eric goes on to explain that Sloan even rigged the DNA results, telling the couple that they can check for themselves with a new DNA test, but this is their baby. Once inside the living room, Eric apologizes to Nicole for what Sloan put her though. Nicole says EJ was a victim too.  She turns to EJ and insists that Sloan be arrested. He tells her there is plenty of time for that. She reiterates, “That bitch stole my baby!” But, EJ is not about to do anything about it.


Eric vows he will make Sloan pay for all of her lies and deceit. Nicole asks Eric if he would like to hold Jude one more time before he leaves. Eric tells Jude he will love him more than he will ever know.

As tears stream down his face, he returns Jude to Nicole. She tells he can come over anytime to see the baby. Eric thinks it’s best for Jude to bond with his new family. Holly (Ashley Puzemis) comes in on all this and is filled-in on Jude’s “parentage.” Outside, Eric continues to falls apart.


However, after getting a call from Rafe (Galen Gering), they meet outside Eric’s apartment door. When they enter, the place is a torn up and there is no sign of Sloan. All that they find is a necklace, Eric gave her for Mother’s Day.Eric realized she took off, knowing she could be caught for her crimes. Meanwhile, back the DiMeras, an overcome Nicole is in tears that she actually has her baby back.

Now, what? Will EJ try to bond with Jude or not bond with Jude since he is knows Eric is the biological father? Will Sloan eventually get arrested? What did you think of the performance of Greg Vaughan and Arianne Zucker? Let us know via the comment section below. 

But first, in case you missed it, check out the Michael Fairman Channel’s conversation with the Ari and Greg  from five months back where they talk about the baby switch storyline and more.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES Preview: Nicole Gets Her Baby Back; Then Hauls Off and Decks Sloan

This week on Days of our Lives starts, what looks to be the next and final leg of the baby Jude, baby switch saga, and all of its deceptions. As viewers saw on last Friday’s episode of the Peacock streaming soap opera, Sloan (Jessica Serfaty) told Eric (Greg Vaughan) that Jude is actually Nicole (Arianne Zucker) and EJ’s (Dan Feuerriegel) baby. Of course, that’s a half-truth as the bio-dad is Eric.

Trapped and in cahoots now with EJ, Sloan had to confess what she did to Eric. At the cliffhanger, Eric show up at EJ’s door with Jude in tow. In tears, he tells Nicole this is her baby, and hands it to her. What will go down when the show picks back up on Memorial Day with an all-new episode?

Eric doesn’t know he is the father, but EJ does. EJ also saw Nicole kiss Eric. He is going to do everything he can to keep the truth from coming out in an effort to keep his marriage in tact.

However, how long can EJ and Sloan keep this major secret? Leo (Greg Rikaart) and Dimitri (Peter Porte) are very much alive. Will one of them blow the final whistle on them? Right, Lady Whistleblower? Will Nicole and Eric learning they are the true parents of Jude, be the impetus for Nicole leaving town perhaps with Eric, since we know Arianne Zucker’s last episode of DAYS is set to air July 29th? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile in the latest promo for this week’s DAYS, Nicole and EJ introduce “their” baby to Holly (Ashley Puzemis), while Rafe (Galen Gering) confronts Melinda Trask (Tina Huang) who is playing dumb in all of this. Rafe asks her, “Are you saying you know nothing about the baby switch?” Melinda pretends she is completely shocked, saying, “Did you say baby switch?”

In the moment you’ve been waiting for, harkening back to when Nicole stole Sami’s (Alison Sweeneybaby for months, and the two finally had a showdown which saw Sami delivering bitch-slaps to Nicole, Sloan comes to the DiMera mansion to see Nicole.  Then, Nicole screams that she lost she lost six months with her son because of all of her lies. Next, Nicole hauls off and punches Sloan.  Elsewhere, Eric grabs Leo by his shirt collar, which will be interesting to see how much Leo fesses up on what he knows about the baby switch.

Watch the DAYS preview below.

Now let us know, are you happy to see Nicole get her baby back? Are you frustrated that the story is still going on and now its Eric who is the one in the dark, along with Nicole that he is Jude’s baby daddy? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
