Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) will have to find a way forward. DOOL fans know Ben exhausted every possible option and crossed every line to see if Vincent Belman (Michael Teh) was telling the truth.
It’s clear that Vincent cares more about revenge on Ben than any chance of reducing his sentence in prison.
Ciara Brady Weston (Victoria Konefal) is alive based on the clues Days has offered, but it certainly doesn’t look that way to Ben. Shawn Brady (Brandon Beemer) was sympathetic since he knows how much Ben and Ciara loved each other, but he feels like Ben needs to honor Ciara now.
Ciara wouldn’t want Ben to throw his life away, so Ben will have to keep putting one foot in front of the other. Of course, we should start thinking about what that actually means for Ben.
Days of Our Lives spoilers say a chapter is finally closing now. This is the true end of the story surrounding Ciara’s “death” and Ben’s plans for Vincent, so DOOL has to move on.
What’s next for Ben as he accepts that Ciara’s gone and tries to live life without her? It’s bound to be rough since Ben suggested he’d rather be dead!
Nevertheless, Days spoilers say Ben will indeed start looking to the future – though that future seems awfully bleak right now. Here are three ways DOOL will keep Ben’s story going without Ciara.
1) Marlena’s therapy sessions
Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) will be a big help to Ben in the months ahead. As Marlena pointed out to John Black (Drake Hogestyn), she can’t help but feel a bit maternal when it comes to Ben. Ciara was Ben’s rock, but Marlena can be one for Ben now.
Ben will have to take the time to truly grieve his loss, which he hasn’t really done yet. Days viewers know Ben’s been caught up in vengeful Vincent drama and has been clinging to the hope that Ciara survived.
Marlena may convince Ben to say goodbye as part of the healing process. It could be a giant step forward for Ben as he concentrates on building a new life.
2) Claire and Ben’s friendship strengthens
Days of Our Lives spoilers say Claire Brady (Isabel Durant) will keep checking in with Ben in the coming months. The holidays can bring some moments for those who have been affected by losses.
Claire will step up for Ben and bond with him as they both feel the weight of Ciara’s absence from their lives.
Ben’s friendship with Claire will strengthen, but could that friendship become more down the road? Time will tell, but Ben will have to mourn before he does anything else.
Claire will also let love bloom with Charlie Dale (Mike C. Manning) after some minor setbacks, so Ben and Claire will remain pals for a while.
3) New ‘Cin’ chapter begins
Naturally, a new “Cin” chapter will begin if all goes well. A leaked audition video revealed that Days had plans to cast a captor who works for Vincent. It also revealed that Ciara is being held against her will, so there’ll have to be some exciting clue that lands in Ben’s path eventually.
Perhaps Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso) will send word to Ben and then go missing herself. It could lead Ben to pick up the search down the road and hopefully set up a journey back to Ciara. That could be a pretty long journey, but at least it’d give Ben something to do!
Days spoilers say there are still plans for Ben, so Robert Scott Wilson should be safe unless that changes. We’ll keep you posted as other news and updates emerge.
