Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that Eve Donovan’s (Kassie DePaiva) conditioning tactics will leave Ben Weston’s (Robert Scott Wilson) mind a jumbled mess! Ben will be haunted by Vincent’s (Michael Teh) brainwashing, so he’ll toss and turn as he dreams of strangling Ciara Weston (Victoria Konefal). The question everyone’s wondering is: Will Ben actually go through with it?
Obviously, this storyline has to be heading somewhere dark. There’s a reason DOOL’s letting Ben wrestle with these deadly thoughts, which will undoubtedly get worse.
Days fans saw the way Ben glared at that necktie and tightened his grip on Ciara. The show has certainly set the stage for Ben’s murder attempt on Ciara, so let’s consider how that might play out.
During the week of August 10-14, Ben will be unsettled thanks to his nightmares. As Ben dreams of choking the life out of Ciara, he’ll struggle to process it. The fact that Ben’s even dreaming this will shake him up.
Later, Ben will be surprised to find Vincent in Marlena Evans’ (Deidre Hall) office, so Vincent might use this opportunity to inject Ben with another dose of something.
It’s easy to imagine Vincent jabbing Ben with a syringe before Ben can stop him. It might be a more powerful form of a mind-altering drug or something along those lines.
Then again, Vincent might somehow manipulate Marlena’s mind into hypnotizing Ben to kill Ciara. There are several ways for Days of Our Lives to push Ben toward this final deadly step.
Once Ben’s transformed back into the necktie killer, he may end up alone with Ciara – perhaps somewhere private where no one can hear her scream. DOOL did a great job with spooky lighting and music back when the actual necktie storyline was going on, so they might offer a similar vibe.
Ben may grab a tie and start wrapping it around his hands as he slowly approaches Ciara.
Of course, Ciara would panic and try to talk Ben down. It’s easy to imagine Ciara declaring her love and reminding Ben that this isn’t who he is. Ben’s good at his core, but his mind trips him up sometimes – like when he goes without his meds or his brain’s been manipulated.
It’s not Ben’s fault that he’ll be moving in for the kill, but that indeed looks like what he’ll be doing.
Will Ben be too far gone to listen to Ciara? Will Ben strangle Ciara until she stops breathing and then snap out of it? That might be when Ben finally realizes what he’s done. It’d be a real twist if Ciara’s attempted murderer has to be the one who saves her life.
Ben might leap into action by doing CPR and getting a faint pulse back. After Ciara’s rushed to the hospital, Ben could break down in tears and admit he’s the one who did this to her.
If you think Days wouldn’t take things this far, think again. Remember that John Black (Drake Hogestyn) once poisoned and blinded his best buddy, Steve Johnson (Stephen Nichols)!
Even the good guys can make mistakes, especially when people like crazy Eve are pulling the strings. Ben isn’t evil, but he is capable of dark things in this state. Days of Our Lives spoilers say some powerful drama’s on the way for “Cin,” so we’ll give you updates as other news emerges.
