This week, Days of our Lives fans witnessed the highly-anticipated wedding of Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara (Victoria Konefal), and they were not disappointed when the couple was indeed pronounced husband and wife.

However, in true soap style, their happiness has been short-lived as a bomb went off in the church and now Ben was caught in the explosion.  Just how this will all play out is yet to be seen.

And now, the DOOL app has released two behind the scenes segments featuring Rob Scott Wilson and Victoria Konefal, as they take a look at the dramatic nuptials in exclusive footage from the set of DAYS during the wedding and explosion stunt tape day.

The first piece, “The Making Of: The Wedding of Ben & Ciara” takes you from the vows and how Wilson felt about the heartfelt monologue to the complications with Konefal’s wedding dress which got caught in the doors of the church during a few takes, the long day to make the wedding just right, and much more.

The second piece, “The Making of Ben & Ciara’s Wedding: The Explosion” shows fans just how the stunt was pulled off as DAYS director, Noel Maxam gives the cast, crew, and extras present in the church; direction to pull of these key scenes, while Wilson and Konefal relate how fun and cool it was do something as big as the wedding …. and act in the explosion aftermath.  All which sets the stage for more drama for #Cin fans in the days and weeks ahead.

Check out the behind the scenes content on the DOOL app, and then let us know if you enjoyed the BTS of the wedding via the comment section below.

Absolutely love these behind the scenes and all of the logistics to these complicated scenes especially on their tight budget! Great job, thank you for the interviews with #RoVi! Hopefully we will have more RoVi as cin! They have just done an amazing job together and created this old school soap romance, the vows were written so well but #RoVi just painted the picture, felt like we were a guest at the wedding feeling all of those emotions. Made me reflect on my own wedding and how beautiful it was!

All this showed me is how much the writers favors certain characters/couples over others and needs to invest 100% in all on this show in order for it to succeed. Look at huge difference between Elani, Ericole & this wedding..we know where all the budget went this year. I applaud GV and KA for voicing why they left the show. This fan is following KA when she goes.

‘Days of our Lives’ to Honor James Reynolds’ 40th Anniversary as Abe Carver with Special Episode

As DAYS viewers witnessed on Friday’s episode, Abe has been shot in the park, after Carmine pulls out a gun, and Jake (Brandon Barash) tries to apprehend him.  Jake rushes to Abe’s side and calls an ambulance and he is rushed to University Hospital.  Once there, Abe eventually flatlines, while Lani (Sal Stowers), Paulina (Jackee Harry) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are besides themselves with worry.

This sets the stage for Monday’s episode where Abe will go into the light, as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) works to save his light and while he hovers between life and death, DAYS fans are treated to the special 40th anniversary episode of James Reynolds as Salem’s Abe Carver.   The Daytime Emmy-winning actor, (he won Lead Actor in 2018) began his Salem journey when he first aired back on October 29th, 1981.

Reynolds told SOD on the Lexie appearance, “The young actress they brought in to be part of this was just wonderful“n giving the essence of (their) relationship and communicated beautifully, just beautifully, in her face and her eyes, as Renee did quite so often.”  He added, “I was kind of transported, actually.”

DAYS Head Scribe, Ron Carlivati, Shares On Marlena’s Possession 2.0: “We Decided John Needs To Get On To This Sooner Than He Did In The Original, Because That’s What The Audience Would Expect”

As viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives are watching the revisiting of the classic possession storyline revisited with its 2021 version 2.0, the stage is being set for plenty of devilish drama, now that good doc, Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) is once again in the grips of evil.

We have already seen her with yellow eyes, conjuring up some demonic plans, and of course, the devil trying to pull the wool over the eyes of Marlena’s husband, John Black (Drake Hogestyn).

Back in the 1994/95 version of this storyline, Father John emerged and exorcised the demon from Marlena, so he knows a thing or two about being possessed, and the horrors it caused to Marlena, and the town of Salem 25 years ago, and as we have seen John is very, very concerned about all this talk of Marlena being possessed by the devil from the script that Johnny (Carson Boatman)  is set to make into a film on Sami’s life story.

Current Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati, spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, about his plans and the creation of the 2021 possession storyline. Ron revealed that John is not going to be in the dark for long, sharing: “John has been through this, so the devil isn’t going to be able to pull the wool over his eyes the way he did the first time.”

Carlivati also added: “Even though all soap opera stories, I would argue, depend on some characters being a little bit dumb, in this case, we decided John needs to get on to this sooner than he did in the original because that’s what they audience would expect.  Look for the story to move along at a pretty good clip. We are not rushing, anything by any means – we are having so much fun with the story, but it was important to us that John not look stupid here so he starts to suspect something is wrong with her pretty soon.”

So, are you glad that John will not be completely dumped? Will Father John return to save the day? Are you enjoying the story thus far? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Then, check out our recent interview with Ron all about the creation of DAYS limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem still streaming on Peacock.
