Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) will grow increasingly concerned about Claire Brady (Olivia Rose Keegan) and whatever she might have in store for Ciara Brady (Victoria Konefal). DOOL’s set up a fun battle between Ben and Claire, so we want to know how you feel about this Days of Our Lives war. Whose side are you on?
Let’s consider this situation from both perspectives. Ben is engaged to Ciara, so he’s naturally going to be protective of her. Putting Ben’s own history aside, he has every right to be worried about the woman who tried to set his fiancée on fire.
That’s especially true since Ben’s sister, Jordan Ridgeway (Chrishell Stause), managed to fool Bayview doctors into thinking she’d recovered.
Jordan was supposedly all better and still went after Ciara, so it’s easy to see why Ben would be on guard. At the same time, Ben’s acting awfully smug for someone the whole town knows as “the necktie killer.” Ben was a real smart aleck to Claire and definitely provoked her, which probably isn’t the best idea if he’s so concerned!
Claire was pushed to her limit and wanted to burn Ciara alive, although she ultimately regretted it. There’s no doubt that Claire went off the rails in the months leading up to that murder attempt, which was a clear writing shift – one that took Claire from mischievous schemer to somebody who was having a breakdown.
As for Ben, he beat Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn) until he was left comatose and wanted Chad to take the fall for being the necktie killer. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) was nearly strangled to death by Ben at one point.
Days fans watched as Ben drained the life out of Will Horton (Chandler Massey) on the floor of his apartment. Ben killed Serena Mason (Melissa Archer) and Paige Larson (True O’Brien).
Abigail DiMera (Kate Mansi) was abused in more ways than one before being held hostage while in labor. Ben let Wendy Taylor (Denice Duff) the midwife deliver Abigail’s baby before taking her out back to shoot her.
Ben also tried to burn Abigail and Chad alive while they were restrained. He kidnapped Thomas DiMera and eventually came back to torment Abigail – something that still haunts Abby to this day based on her hallucinations. Even on medication, Ben still has quite a temper since he choked Evan Frears (Brock Kelly) in the park.
It’s one thing for Ben to be worried, but should he really be so arrogant all things considered? Claire’s wedding obsession is troubling, but she’s right about Ben being a hypocrite.
However, Ben’s also right about Claire being so pushy with Ciara. If Claire would just chill and reconnect with Ciara a bit more organically, perhaps Ben would be more accepting.
It’s a complex and interesting battle, so DOOL viewers will be eager to see what it’s all building to! Are you siding with Ben or Claire at this point? We’ll provide updates as other Days news becomes available.
