Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) is going to have some seriously terrifying days in front of him. As DOOL viewers know, Ben had a scary dream recently about his dead sister Jordan Ridgeway (Chrishell Stause).
In the dream, Jordan was berating Ben for his murderous past and telling him that he’d always be a killer. But after Ben woke up from the dream, something interesting happened – he kept seeing Jordan, indicating that he was hallucinating from a waking state.
Now, if Ben was hallucinating while he was awake, then that suggests that a couple things could be going on here. First, it means that Ben could indeed be backsliding from a mental health perspective.
The stress from the wedding and all the Claire Brady (Olivia Rose Keegan) drama with the ruined wedding dress and the missing engagement ring could be really getting to Ben and might have caused his hallucination of Jordan,
But there’s another possibility here. As DOOL viewers know, Ciara Brady (Victoria Konefal) appears to have been poisoned by someone, and she’s blaming Claire for it. But DOOL spoilers indicate that Eve Donovan (Kassie DePaiva) and possibly even Eduardo Hernandez (A Martinez) will kidnap Ben amidst the aftermath of the huge explosion after Ben’s wedding to Ciara.
And that could mean that Eve is the person who poisoned Ciara. And if Eve poisoned Ciara, then she could have drugged Ben, too.
Could Eve’s actions be behind Ben’s frightening dream about Jordan and his later hallucination? Eve might have dosed both Ben and Ciara with something, or even possibly with different drugs.
And we can’t forget that there was someone else in Salem who was recently drugged by an unknown person – Abigail DiMera (Kate Mansi).
Abigail and Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn) initially blamed Gabi DiMera (Camila Banus) for the drugging, but DOOL viewers know that Gabi didn’t do it. Given that Abigail started hallucinating due much like Ben appeared to hallucinate when he saw Jordan…could Eve have been behind Abigail’s drugging too?
Perhaps Eve chose Abigail to test the drug on – after all, Abigail has prior mental health issues and would be a perfect guinea pig for Eve to see if the drug worked before unleashing it on Ben.
Well, Eve could have very sinister plans for Ben, now that she knows that the drug has devastating and long-lasting effects. As DOOL viewers know, Eve detests Ben because back when he was a serial killer, the necktie killer in fact, he murdered her daughter Paige Larson (True O’Brien).
It seems that Eve wants something pretty bad to happen to Ben, and simply murdering him probably won’t be enough for her.
Perhaps Eve wants both Ben and Ciara to suffer – she could hate Ciara on principle for supporting Ben and saving him from death row earlier this year. And what better way to make the young couple suffer than to wreak havoc on their wedding, then kidnap Ben and make him go crazy again.
Perhaps what Eve really wants is to make Ben devolve back into the unstable person he was when he was a serial killer. Much has been said recently on the show to remind viewers that Ben has done a lot of work in therapy and that he takes his meds faithfully so that he stays mentally stable.
Perhaps Eve wants to hold Ben captive, deprive him of his good meds, and even give him drugs to make him hallucinate and regress so that the world sees him as as the necktie killer again and he’s locked up.
That sounds like something Eve would do – after all, she’s physically attacked Ben before and nearly killed him on one occasion. And with some additional help from Eduardo, she could really do some damage, like blow up the church, physically restrain Ben, and drive Ben mad again.
It will be interesting to watch all this play out, if our theory is on track here.
Do you think that Eve could be behind Ben’s hallucination about Jordan, and that she’s planning on driving Ben over the edge again? Stay tuned to Days of Our Lives and remember that CDL is your go-to source for the latest DOOL daily recaps, news, and spoilers. We’ve got you covered!
