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.

Cady McClain IN As DAYS Jennifer Temporarily Replacing Melissa Reeves

Rumors that have been swirling are confirmed true.  Cady McClain is coming to Salem and Days of our Lives to replace Melissa Reeves temporarily as the new Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  The casting news was confirmed by a Days spokesperson, according to Soap Opera Digest.

Daytime fans recall, Cady is a two-time Daytime Emmy winner and has previously appeared as Dixie on All My Children, Rosanna on As the World Turns and Kelly on The Young and the Restless.  McClain has already begun filming as Jennifer.

Reeves, who commutes from Nashville to Los Angeles to tape episodes of Days of our Lives, decided not to return to set when the NBC soap opera resumed production earlier this month due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic,

In addition, Melissa became a grandmother last month with her daughter Emily’s first child, and now soon will welcome her son Larry’s first child later this month, which is another reason Reeves chose to stay put in Tennessee.

So, what do you think of the Jennifer switcheroo? Excited to see what Cady brings to the role? Comment below.

Marci Miller Opens Up About Her Decision to Return to DAYS and Her Concerns Replacing Kate Mansi

This week will mark the return of Marci Miller in the role of Abigail Deveraux DiMera on Days of our Lives.

The popular actress, who had been nominated for two Daytime Emmys in the Lead Actress category during her initial run on the NBC soap opera, revealed some of the complex emotions she had in determining whether or not to come back to Salem as detailed in this week’s Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now.

Once again, Miller is taking over the role from her predecessor, Kate Mansi.  As DAYS fans know. Mansi won a Daytime Emmy for her work as Outstanding Supporting Actress in 2017 and first played the role from 2011-2016, then Miller took over the role.  Abigail’s last arc was played by Mansi when she returned from 2018- to the first part of 2020.  Miller had stepped away from the role in 2018 as she wanted to concentrate on other projects.

In regards to her comeback, Miller shared with SOD: “You never know how discombobulating it might be.  That was one of the things I had to weigh in coming back, was whether or not it was fair to the fans for me to accept (the offer) because Kate hadn’t been there for a very long stint. For them to do this flip-flop thing was a little bit of a concern of mine.”

Miller ultimately says she felt that it was better to have Abigail on the canvas, than not in all, and in the hands of an actress who was familiar with the role than a new actress to take over the part.

Make sure to check out SOD for more on Marci’s decision to return to the NBC soap opera.

Meanwhile, look for an exciting story ahead for Miller when Abigail gets back in action in Salem.

So, what do you think of Marci’s careful thought-process to coming home to DAYS? Comment below.
