Victoria Konefal Returns to Days of our Lives

Cin fans will be happy to know the other half of the DAYS super couple will be back on-screen later this month as Ben (Rob Scott Weston) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) love story is set to continue.

According to Soap Opera Digest, Look for Konefal to first appear back on-screen during the January 28th episode of the NBC daytime drama series.

When the missing in action Ciara returns she will bring with her a new character named Rhodes played by Jason Downs.

No word on how long Konefal’s stay will be this time, since she has been off-contract with the show since last year.

However, reportedly this this will be Ciara in the flesh, not a conjured up or “Vision” of her that comes to Ben in his time of need.

What do you think has happened to Ciara since the car explosion she was supposedly part of? Glad to know Victoria is on her way back on-air to DAYS? Comment below.

Ugh. Why???

I love her and Ben together

Me too

Me to. I knew she would be back.I am very glad.Ben deserves to be happy.

She never should have left as well as Kristin Alfonso and Melissa reeves please come back

Jack needs his one and only love and that is Melissa reeves

I think so to

I think Melissa burned her bridges with DOOL when she angered fellow cast members and fans by “liking” anti-BLM posts

Then good, don’t miss her that much

I was tired of her portrayal of Jennifer…kind of whiny

I am sure that is not true.

I totally agree bring them BACK…..

Really?

Yes melissa Reeves and hope need to return shows not with them gone.

Miss Melissa Reeves and Kristian Alfonzo so much too!

I totally agree

That is great she is greatly missed.Yes to Hope coming back and Jennifer please come back.

Tristan, Susan and Gwen for good

Thrilled. She is the next generation star of DOOL. I know actors always want to do other things, but I hope VK’s stay will be for the distant future. If not, the character is too central to the show not to be recast. Now, let’s see how Hope’s absence is explained.

Itotally agree! Ben/Ciara are a young, sexy couple with excitement. Theirs could be an iconic “soap marriage” for the ages.

I fully agree

Yes, bring Cin back.

I agree. But hope, she can stay gone. Dont care for her anymore. She hurt rafe and he need someone in his life that’s going to love him like nicole. Erick is a disappoint so it’s time for her to move on. I think they will make a great couple. Plus he loves kids.like to see eva plot to get steve back and find Charlie guilty. I like the old Clair better. This one don’t fit the part. She’s to nieve to me.

Yes

So glad ciera will be back

I can not wait for her return .ilove that beautiful face.hope need to be on her way also i .

I love Ben and Ciara together.SUPER COUPLE

I think Charlie might be involved.

Ciara will have a surgery. No one will recognize her! Rafe will be the person to put all the pieces together. Meanwhile Ben still remembered ciara see her and feels she is his lost soul mate

Yes I think she should come back to the show on days of our lives she is one of my favorite actresses and she is and she should try to get married again on days of our lives to ben Weston

I agree. Perfect couple. Thick as theives. That’s real love there

I’m happy as long as she stays otherwise, no!

I agree… it’s frustrating when the actors come back for a short while and then look for better jobs or whatever! if she’s not coming back for an extended period then don’t come back!

Yes .. thank goodness!!! So excited .. will start watching again now that she is back to continue the Ben & Ciara super couple life!! Yes

I hope she’s back for a while.

Yeh, I love her coming back. … can’t wait to see her!!!!

Yes! Get some young story lines happening.

How will Hope’s absence be explained if Ciara is back in town?

They are thinking of recasting hope for ciara’s return I don’t really know if they are actually going to do it though

HELL no!!

After the godawful abominations that the current regime has passed off as “Eve” and “Diana”, and the new “Claire”, who can act but is literally older than her mother should be (Belle was born in 1994, for Hell’s sake and now has a daughter who’s 28??) I really do NOT want to see what a “Hope” recast looks like from this regime. Probably 10-15 years too old for the part and horribly miscast, if they want to be consistent with their recent track record.

Who cares

When running from car, bumped her head. Got amnesia???

She just said, Ben, Iam coming home. Doesn’t sound like amnesia to me.

Bumped her head. Got amnesia wondered off???

So glad ciara is coming back love her

Give her a CONTRACT

Yes. I am so glad she is back.

Oh wow I’m so happy she coming back, yesssssss❤️ miss you girl

So happy Ciara will be back!!! Yahoo!!!

Cierra needs to stay on the show. Do what you have to to make that happen

Pay her lots of dough so she’ll stay for good.

This story line needs to be brought back to DOOL. This relationship although new is a significant lifeline to the show. Ben is just floating his character has no purpose. Whoever thought releasing Victoria was a smart move made a huge mistake!! The chemistry between Ben and Ciara is so real it’s amazing. Currently the show is lacking something it seems to hit a brick wall. Ben and Ciara’s lives intertwine with all the characters in Salem some way. Without them the show has a huge dead spot. I must admit after being a fan for a long time I don’t watch DOOL faithfully as in the past because without Ben and Ciara the show is boring.
Please bring Victoria back she bought so much to the character Ciara.

Didn’t miss her. She can stay dead 🙂

That’s an ugly thing to say.

This isn’t real life.

Im so extremely happy she is coming back.

Sorry not a fan. I stopped watching for many years. When they brought back Jack and then Steve started again. Was not a fan of hers especially the way they always had her dress. So will either ff her scenes or stop watching again.

Thrilled to see her come back.

Yes, bring back Ciara with Ben not anyone else please!

She hot and she back holla

They need to recast Hope sorry Kristen we love you but there is still a storyline to be told

WOOHOO! She has truly been missed…

Yes, Im glad she is returning! I hope the guy she is bringing with her won’t interfere with the relationship between she and Ben. The couple deserves their time together. I also hope this show isn’t ending! I’ve been watching since I was 6 years old, and I am now 61!! It has become a part of my life!!

Depends on how you define “interfere”…. the new character “Rhodes” is the thug that Psycho Vincent hired to hold Ciara hostage, so it’s not likely there would be any romantic involvement between the two.

That is, unless ReRon drags out the tired old amnesia gimmick, and Ciara doesn’t realize she’s a hostage.

Glad to hear she is coming back. Best couple on days in years

So happy Victoria is returning, great actress and Ben’s better half,hopefully she stays

Glad ciara is returning love her & ben

She needs to come back and stay if she wont sign contract find someone that will would rather have Victoria but if not I guess it’ll be ok… and bring Melissa Reeves back to

Yes love her and ben do miss hope but i think cady is doing a a great job as jennifer and i dont blame melissa for not flying back from tenn

I’m do excited I live the Ben cierra storyline

Can’t wait. Miss her on the show.

I am happy for a Ben & Ciara reunion its time. They are the next Hope & Bo for the fortune. They are a great match lots of chemistry between them. Cant wait and see what happens.

I’m very happy she’s coming back. Ben will jump up and down for joy

Love this! Love her and Ben together! About time

So happy that she will return to Ben! Will Hope be there to welcome her?

WOW – how to tap in to the “desired” demographic, please
for me, that’s benjamin button 30 years ! right outa the gate : she Susan Lucci’ed. STARRED

taken from Wiki: “In August 2017, it was announced that she had been cast in the role of Ciara Brady on the NBC soap opera, Days of Our Lives.[7] She debuted on December 1, 2017.[8] In July 2020, she announced her exit from the role as a full-time cast member”

look for Ciera Alice to ignite January 28, 2021. YES !

isn’t it something for the fan… we no longer have to “wait” 6-8 months for any change! right up on par with all the rest of show’ to mind the store

now that the two desired demographic ARE BACK- reeling’ Ben and Ciera; Gabs and Jake
have at it

@Ron Carlivati; Ryan Quan : slow down so much … Ben and Ciera are sizzle

Love My Ciera Alice “LOVE”

have to add back : My two STARLET I GIVE YOU ! “Ms. Olivia Rose Keegan AND Victoria Konefal” – I beam heart full and stand guard

these young WOMEN ! FLY

Yes!!!! Bring her back!!!! Ben needs her!!!!

Bring back Ciara! She and Ben deserve happiness together and they make the show! Enough is Enough!!

Can’t wait until Ciara returns to her true love Ben. I love those two and this is the main reason I watch Days.

So do I!

YES YES YES YES YEA. ONLY WOMAN FOR BEN

Glad she will be back hope they have a great story for her and Ben

Amnesia

Yay!!!!!

I’m just glad that she’s back and hopefully she will continue.

Whatever happened to Jan Speers? And let’s not forget the Frabage’ egg from years ago.

I suspect that ReRon will do with Jan Spears what he did with Heather Webber on GH…. She will be the cartoonish token psychopath that ReRon drags out of the attic once or twice a year when he needs a mindless “filler” storyline.

Great, she and Hope are what makes this show. Love her story with Ben. Bring back Kristen and Melissa too! They are what keeps me watching!!!

Happy for Hope and her new endeavors. Glad to see Ciara come back and hopefully stay. Melissa can stay gone as far as this faithful viewer is concerned.

Ben deserves happiness with ciera. Bring her and bo back. The show is not the same without him and his daughter. Also can somebody find a man for Kate that’s not young enough to be her son. Wow I like Kate she reminds me of Victoria on the halves and have notes. She’s a diva but can’t seem to find a man her own age. I know she’s lonely but do yal have to make her look like a desperate cougar on da hunt for fresh young meat? It’s time for her to come up again and be that diva she use to be with her own money and power. Jack and jennifer, losers. Please let eli and Lonnie get there babies back and kill vivian and roff off the show.

Victoria Konefal plays a very good Ciara.

EXCLUSIVE: Jacob Young, Joan Collins and Nadia Bjorlin to Prague to Film ‘Murder Between Friends’

On Thursday night during the Michael Fairman Channel’s livestream interview centering around Jason Cook’s (ex-Shawn, DAYS and ex-Matt, GH) latest movie Four For Fun which stars Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Jacob Young (ex-JR, AMC, ex-Rick, B&B and ex-Lucky, GH), revealed another upcoming film project with some very familiar faces.

Jacob Young shared an exclusive that he is set to direct, produce and star in a Agatha Christie-like murder mystery feature film aptly tiled Murder Between Friends.

Speaking on the upcoming project, Jacob said, “I’m flying at the end of the March to Prague to direct, produce and star in a film with Joan Collins (ex-Dynasty). Nadia Bjorlin (ex-Chloe, Days of our Lives) is in it, and Toby Alexander Smith from Eastenders (ex-Gray Atkins). Plus, a couple of my Broadway friends and a very well known Czech actress (Hana Vagnerova).”

According to Jacob, the production start date is April 1st. He added on the premise of the film, “It’s very Agatha Christie sort of ‘Knives Out’ without having a hundred million dollars to shoot it, but still will be a lovely film nonetheless.” Young said the plan is to finish all principal photography by April 17th.

IMDb has more on the film. It shared that former All My Children star Trent Garrett (ex-Asher Pike) is listed as co-directing the feature. Mark Rozzano is listed as writer of Murder Between Friends.

Days of our Lives Star Blake Berris Chats On the Everett Lynch/Bobby Stein Mystery, Working with His New Co-Stars, and the Last Christmas Episode with Bill Hayes

On Days of our Lives, the return of Blake Berris is making for some very intriguing drama, with the audience guessing just which way the story will go.

When Berris arrived back on Days of our Lives, after previously playing Nick Fallon, he was taking on the new role of Everett Lynch, who has a past with Stephanie Johnson (Abigail Klein) and Jada Hunter (Elia Cantu). Only, as it has been revealed, the past he had with Jada was under the name “Bobby Stein,” who from what we can tell was far from a nice guy.

Blake visited the Michael Fairman Channel for a livestream interview this week, where fans in the live chat were weighing-on what could be the truth about the guy – is he a split personality suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder? Did the accident that cost him a year of his life in a coma, never happen? Recently, someone set fire to the beloved Horton house. Fans are suspecting it would have been “Bobby” who is working for Clyde Weston (James Read). Others believe that Everett/Bobby could actually be Clyde’s son. With upcoming therapy sessions with Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) about to start, things are about to get more juicy in Salem.

Here are just a few excerpts from our conversation with Blake on a myriad of Everett/Bobby subjects. Make sure to check out the full interview for more.

Did you know that they were going to make Everett Lynch a Jewish character? This is only the second time in the history of the show that they have even had a Jewish character on the canvas. Didn’t they reveal this at the Horton family Christmas episode?

BLAKE: No, they never asked me. I am half-Jewish on my dad’s side. There was never like, ‘You’re Jewish, right? We can call you Jewish on the show?’ At the Horton Christmas, “They made a real point of it, yeah.”

And now the new ‘character’ is “Bobby Stein” …

BLAKE: “Right, and that suggests more Jewish, and then Lynch must be coming from somewhere else, maybe the mother. I was so curious because I think the show has been historically, I’m gonna say, Catholic more than like Wasps. With the Bradys there’s this sort of Irish influence, and then the DiMeras, that’s Italian. So, we’ve got Catholics sort of on both sides that are dominant. Now I, “represent”.

Photo: JPI

What has it been like working with Abigail Klein?

BLAKE: I think she is extraordinary. We start off sort of frosty, or she’s frosty with me, like she doesn’t want to let me in. And then, for a while things are going really well. I just could not adore Abigail more. She’s such a good actor. I could always rely on her to bring me back into a scene and be there in this emotionally, supportive way.

Photo: JPI

Everett and Chad seemed to be becoming friend-ish, when all went awry when at the PCPD interrogation room, Everett let him know about Elia and Bobby Stein, and Chad let him have it for worming his way back in to Stephanie’s life.

BLAKE: Billy would call us the ‘disgusting brothers’ and that’s a reference from Succession, because all of a sudden they’re just so chummy with each other. It’s like all of a sudden we just had this like ‘Bernstein and Woodward’, sort of dynamic duo. I think that Everett really started to think of Chad as a friend and feels sort of disappointed, and he feels, “Oh, it’s that easy? I just needed to have some other identity and now you’re a fair-weather friend?”‘

Photo: JPI

In recent scenes, Jada sees Bobby Stein for the first time, and we see you and Elia Cantu share scenes with each other for the first time. What is it like working with Elia?

BLAKE: She’s fire, man. She comes in hot and she tells you the way it’s going to be. I think early on, we were trying to suss each other out and the more we worked together, the more comfortable you get with somebody. I think actors do this sometimes with each other; if there’s spice on screen, you like to keep some of what you have on-screen in your (real-life) interactions because it helps … it helps the work.  Eventually, we just sort of wore each other down and we’re like, ‘I actually totally get you, and you’re great.'”

Did you know that they were going to make Everett Lynch a Jewish character? This is only the second time in the history of the show that they have even had a Jewish character and didn’t they reveal this at the Horton family Christmas episode?

BLAKE: No, they never asked me. I am half-Jewish on my dad’s side. There was never like, ‘You’re Jewish, right? We can call you Jewish on the show?’ At the Horton Christmas, “They made a real point of it, yeah.”

And now the new ‘character’ is “Bobby Stein” …

BLAKE: “Right, and that suggests more Jewish, and then Lynch must be coming from somewhere else, maybe the mother. I was so curious because I think the show has been historically, I’m gonna say, Catholic more than like Wasps. With the Bradys there’s this sort of Irish influence, and then the DiMeras, that’s Italian. So we’ve got Catholics sort of on both sides that are dominant. Now I, “represent”.

You were on set and in the annual Horton Christmas episode which sadly marked the last for Days of our Lives legendary Bill Hayes, who passed away in January of this year.  What do you recall of that tape day?

BLAKE: It was the Christmas episode when we were watching Susan (Julie) and Bill, say ‘Merry Christmas.’  And there was something about it that just felt like it could be the last time. I mean, it wrecked us all on set. Bill gets so choked up and there was something really profound about the moment. They kiss each other as they have so many times before on the show. It was just beautiful. It felt beautiful to be there for that last Christmas. He’s just such an icon. Every time I’d see him, he was so with it … he knew my name, he knew his lines. What an incredible, incredible man.

Photo: JPI

Fans will get to see Everett in therapy sessions with Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)? Would you say she is helping the guy?

BLAKE: Deidre’s always making jokes about Marlena, ‘She’s the worst therapist in the world’ (Laughs) I remember in the first therapy session, we almost couldn’t get through the scenes because it’s just so clear that Everett has a litany of very profound psychological issues that he is going to have to work through. He’ll keep coming back. This guy’s gonna pay the bills!

Photo: JPI

Viewers are waiting to see how they mystery of Everett Lynch/Bobby Stein plays out. What can you say as a tease for what’s to come?

BLAKE: As far as a tease, I would say, you have all these characters sort of, trying to wake up the ‘sleeping giant’ in a way. I think it’s safe to say that like if you poke a bear, the bear might wake up.

Watch the livestream chat with Blake in full below.

Now let us know, what do you think is going with Everett/Bobby? What has happened to him in his past? Share your theories in the comment section below, and make sure to catch Days of our Lives next week on Peacock for more to his story.
