Kassie DePaiva Back as Eve on DAYS; What Did You Think of the Shocking Reveal?

Photo: JPI

If you caught Wednesdays’s episode of Days of our Lives, you know that Ben’s (Rob Scott Wilson) captor was revealed.  After many theories by fans on social media since Ben and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) wedding literally blew up in their faces, with Ben being kidnapped, it all came down to this moment.

Then, in a great entrance; soap veteran Kassie DePaiva made a return to the NBC soap opera as Eve Donovan, the woman behind the kidnapping.

It all goes down in a warehouse (somewhere yet to be determined to the audience)  where we see Ben strapped to a chair and man dressed in black coming into the room where he is being held introducing himself as Vincent played by actor Michael Teh.

Vincent tells Ben he blew up his wedding and was paid to do so by his employer.   The henchmen also notes that said employer is also the same person who sent the other wedding gift- that was the one that Ben thought Clyde (James Read) to be behind.

Ben wants to be released but Vincent takes a baton and strikes Ben’s leg as he yelps in pain, and then, lo and behold, from the doorway we hear, “That’s enough Vincent.”

Just then, Eve says she will ‘take it from here’ as Ben watches her in shock.  What will Eve’s next move be?  Has she snapped?  Is this payback for what Ben did for murdering her daughter, Paige?  Is Eve working with someone else for money as well to harm Ben and Ciara?

DePaiva tweeted on her return: “I’m baacckk!@nbcdays watch out Ben!”

Loved it! An actual surprise on a soap opera. And one that was kept hidden for months, considering the Days taping schedule. Cool filming too with the light and smoke.

I kind of figured it was her but I got to say they did a great job with the lighting and effects. Soaps need to get back to surprising us and not give out spoilers.

For Hell’s sake, why did they bring back this abomination??

The REAL Eve Donovan is a Days legacy character. Not this joke & ReRon pet.

Get rid of her. Again. And make it permanent this time.

And so help me, by all that is unholy…… if the rumors of a Claire recast are even remotely true… never mind, I’m not even going to speak that into existence because the thought is 666% intolerable.

Get this OLTL baggage off the show NOW. Bring back the REAL Eve.

Satan, I agree with you 99 percent of the time (on soap matters, that is), but it’s time to let go of the OLTL hate (even if hate is critical to a devilish repertoire). Kassie DePaiva is a well-respected performer with a lot of fans, and her previous work with Ron shouldn’t be held against her. Charlotte Ross broke her original contract back in the day and departed Days early. She was offered the chance to come back (before Kassie was asked to step in) and passed because she was too busy with other projects. So you can’t blame those… Read more »

I think Kassie DePaiva does a very good job as Eve. I have seen episodes my grandmother recorded with the “real” Eve and am completely unimpressed by her acting ability.

I never liked the first Eve….she was a greasy sleazy unlikeable whore. I love Kassie…..but this is not a good recast. Kassie is older than the woman who played Eve’s mother….and the character has no relevance on the canvas without Shane her father. Sbe is far too campy and “put on”. They have tried to shoehorn her into almost every story…Jack and Jennifer….The Kiriakis, the DiMera’s……its time to cut some losses and admit its not working and spend salary money on characters who are more connected to the heart of the show.

the actress who plaued her daughter has been rehired. Why do a serial killer storuline only to bring back all the victims alive? Its cheap, low grade Jim Reilly writing that Ron C. Excels at.

I had to laugh so hard at the production values. Took me straight back to those cheesy 1970’s music videos with the harsh lighting, smoky room and then Eve’s killer red sequin dress. Perhaps it was to all be symbolic but, boy!, did it ad some levity to my day!

Indeed–pure camp! Who wears a red sequined dress to hang out in an abandoned warehouse?

Michael Fairman, have you considered labeling things Spoiler, so those who haven’t seen the episode yet aren’t spoiled? I take a chance logging on to websites for news coverage (I faithfully follow your site) and realize the episode aired, so technically it isn’t a spoiler, but for me it is, since I’m not caught up yet. Just some constructive criticism, I enjoy your webpage, but will be weary if I haven’t seen the current episode of any soap. Thank you.

I have always hated the character of Eve from the time she seduced her teenage daughters boyfriend, J.J. All she does is wreak havoc on the show. I only saw one little bit of goodness when she was with Brady and his son. I imagine Rafes dad will be back to help her exact revenge on Ben for killing their daughter Paige. Her constant need to destroy Jennifer was another senseless goal. She may be a good actor but I have only seen her in this role, so I am only say I will not be watching the show much… Read more »

As much as I love Kassie, this is another ridiculously infantile and over-the-to, and overly used plot. There is no excitement or anticipation unless the viewer enjoys torture. Stupid, stupid, stupid.
On another note ( off the subject), I think Jake is Stefan, where Julie has Jake’s heart. It is, indeed, conceivable that this Vincent guy transferred Jake’s memories into Stefan’s brain. Days is an open book—yet, I have been wrong before. That plot has legs—-this Eve thing does not. Perhaps, TPTB intend for Ciera to die by Eve’s hand.

Victoria Konefal Confirms Her Exit From Days of our Lives

As the rumors circulated they were today proven true.  Victoria Konefal (Ciara) has left Days of our Lives as a full-time cast member with the long-running NBC soap opera.

In a statement to Deadline, Konefal shared: “I cherish every moment I have spent working on Days of Our Lives. It is an honor and a privilege to work in an environment filled with so much talent and passion in every direction. The experience and knowledge I’ve accumulated over the past three years is irreplaceable, and I’m forever grateful for it. I would love the opportunity to continue working with my castmates in the future, but at this time I will not be returning as a full-time cast member. To the cast and crew, it was an absolute pleasure working with you. To the loving and unwaveringly supportive fans, thank you. Thank you for joining me on my journey of finding Ciara Brady. It was a beautiful one. Cheers to some of the best days of my life.”

However with that statement, it does appear Konefal has left the door open for her to return as Ciara in a guest-star type of appearance or in a arc of a storyline- time will tell just how that pans out.

Konefal joined the show as the new Ciara Brady back in 2017, and became popular as part of the tortured duo known as “Cin’ along with Rob Scott Wilson (Ben) who’s on-screen nuptials aired this week on the show.

Since Days taped so far ahead of air before the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown and has episodes through Mid-October in the can, it would appear Konefal would make her on-screen exit during that time, since she will not be returning to the series, when it begins production again, which is projected to start on September 1st.

Konefal joins the list of departures since the beginning of this year which now include: Casey Moss, Chandler Massey, Freddie Smith, Galen Gering, Greg Vaughan and Kristian Alfonso.

So, sad to see Victotia exit as Ciara? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

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.
