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

Photo: JPI

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.… Read more »

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.

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.

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

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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

DAYS Jackée Harry Joins Freeform Comedy Pilot ‘Everything’s Trash’ in Recurring Role

Jackée Harry is one busy actress in Hollywood!  On the heels of learning that Harry has signed on more full-time on Days of our Lives in her role as Paulina, comes this bit of casting news.

Harry will join the cast of the Freeform comedy pilot, Everything’s Trash along with another notable actor, George Wallace.  Both will have recurring roles in the show should it go to series.

In story, Everything’s Trash follows Phoebe (Phoebe Robinson), a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. When her younger brother Jayden emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up, so she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood, since she doesn’t seem to have a clue. The series is inspired by Robinson’s book, “Everything’s Trash But It’s Okay.”

According to Variety, “Harry will star as Zora, Phoebe and Jayden’s mother. She and her husband are mid-Western transplants, but they have made a home in NY . They love and support their children equally, but truth be known, Zora acts (and dresses) younger than she is and straddles the line between “I’m my daughter’s mother” and “I’m my daughter’s best friend.”  Meanwhile, Wallace will play the role of Abraham, Phoebe and Jayden’s father and husband to Zora.

So, looking forward to hopefully seeing Jackée on a half-comedy sitcom at night, and doing her role on Days of our Lives? Comment below.

Victoria Konefal Will Be Back On Days of our Lives

This week Days of our Lives viewers saw the exit of both Theo (Cameron Johnson) and Ciara (Victoria Konefal), much to the chagrin of Cin fans everywhere! But hold on! Days head writer, Ron Carlivati revealed that Victoria Konefal will be back on-screen this summer on the NBC soap opera.

In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Carlivati revealed: “From the moment we were coming to that point and we knew Ciara was going to exit town with Theo, we were immediately pursuing the next chapter with Victoria: When would she be available or willing to come back, and when could we tell the next chapter because I knew that would feel unfinished and be unsatisfying to a lot of people. So that’s why I’m happy to announce here that Ciara is coming back and we are going to tell that next chapter of the story and hopefully, this time, the audience will get the payoff that they’re looking for and hoping for.”

And as to just how long will Konefal who chose to go on recurring status with the show be back for her summer run, Carlivati shared: “At this point, and I can’t speak for Victoria and I can’t speak for the show, and this is not an official announcement in any capacity, but I will say at this point, there is not an end date. We are working with Victoria to keep the story going and keep Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s love story alive.”

Cin fans should note that Carlivati added, “I would encourage the audience to remember that they (Cin) have an important anniversary coming up this summer that may figure into their story, so she will be back sooner than you know.”

So, happy to know there will be more of Ben and Ciara? Where you upset to see Ciara exit the canvas with Theo? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
