Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that we need to talk about the state Ciara Brady Weston (Victoria Konefal) might be in once she’s found. In an SOD interview, DOOL Executive Producer Ken Corday promised Victoria Konefal would come back and then leave again. Konefal is a recurring player now, so she’ll still be coming and going from time to time.
Nevertheless, this does present some writing challenges. Days could’ve just created a true presumed death storyline and moved on, but that’s not what they chose to do. DOOL writers have created a mystery since Ciara’s remains weren’t in the car. Now it’s a matter of where Ciara is and why she’s staying away.
Days of Our Lives spoilers say Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) and Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso) will locate Vincent Belman (Michael Teh) during the week of September 28-October 2. However, it doesn’t look like Hope and Ben will find any trace of Ciara.
Instead, Ben will fly into a rage and push for answers. What will Vincent’s response be when Ben demands to know where Ciara is? What if Vincent truly has no idea? Let’s consider for a moment who Vincent is: Dr. Wilhelm Rolf’s (William Utay) protégé. Vincent learned from the best and is a master of mind control.
Dr. Rolf has been known to manipulate memories through microchips – and he obviously taught Vincent how to brainwash as well. Vincent was injecting Ben with something to turn him into a super psychopath, and Gwen Rizczech (Emily O’Brien) is using a DiMera-developed drug on Abigail DiMera (Marci Miller) that causes hallucinations.
There’s also Dr. Rolf’s famous memory serum, which brings back lost memories in many cases. If Dr. Rolf can give memories back through a serum, there’s surely another serum that could take them away. What if Vincent gave Ciara something to wipe her memory clean?
Vincent could’ve just left Ciara in the car if he wanted her to die, but maybe he decided that wasn’t what Wendy Taylor (Denice Duff) would want. Wendy was all about bringing new life into the world, so what if that’s what Vincent ultimately decided to give Ciara: a new life?
Perhaps Vincent felt it was best for Ciara to forget all about Ben and start fresh far away from the serial killer who murdered Wendy. Vincent would still get the same payoff of taking away the woman Ben loves, but he wouldn’t have to kill to make that happen.
That would explain why Ciara might return and then leave again. If Ciara doesn’t remember Ben and everything they’ve been through together, it could bring a major “Cin” reunion hurdle.
Ciara might enter treatment to hopefully get her memories back, but she could also push Ben away and just live the new life she’s been given. At least until Konefal returns for a lengthier stint!
Do you think Days might take the amnesia route with Ciara? Once Ciara eventually turns up, will she even remember Ben or her other loved ones? We’ll offer updates as other DOOL news comes in.
