Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that it’s time to revisit an unresolved mystery. DOOL fans will recall that some sabotage was afoot before Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) and Ciara Brady Weston (Victoria Konefal) got married.
First, the wedding dress Ciara picked out was all marked up with nail polish. Then, the engagement ring Ben had just purchased disappeared.
Those were the two confirmed incidents, although there was another probable one. After Ciara drank that Zombie drink at her mini bachelorette party, Claire got the blame for making Ciara sick. Sarah Horton (Linsey Godfrey) couldn’t confirm that Ciara had actually been drugged, but she couldn’t rule it out either.
However, that was likely more than just a coincidence under the circumstances, so let’s consider who might be the culprit here. We’re looking for someone who would’ve wanted to ruin the wedding dress, steal the engagement ring, drug Ciara and mess with Claire.
Days has established that Claire herself wasn’t really responsible – and Eve Donovan (Kassie DePaiva) had no idea what Claire was talking about when she was accused of framing her. Eve only admitted to the church bombing and obviously had bigger goals on her mind. The same goes for Vincent, who was busy preparing to brainwash Ben.
Now that Tripp Dalton’s (Lucas Adams) back in town, he seems to be on the up and up, too. We’re not picking up any shady vibes from Tripp, who’s presumably been far away from the sabotage drama all this time.
Plus, the nail polish incident seemed to be by someone with a feminine touch. We’d say the true culprit is most likely a woman, but who would want to target Ciara and frame Claire? The obvious answer would be Jan Spears (Heather Lindell), but there’s a big problem: Jan has an alibi!
Jan was in Shady Pines when those incidents took place and only just recently secured her release with Sami Brady DiMera’s (Alison Sweeney) help. It’s possible Jan had someone else doing her dirty work prior to her release, but the culprit had to be a character who was free in Salem – maybe even one not connected to Jan’s story at all.
That brings to Gwen Rizczech (Emily O’Brien), who was perhaps far too inquisitive throughout that entire framing storyline. Gwen befriended Claire at Bayview and asked all sorts of questions about Ciara.
Once the incidents started happening, Gwen seemed almost excited when she’d push Claire for the truth. It’d be easy for Days to argue that Gwen was messing with Claire the entire time.
As for the part about targeting Ciara, we know Vincent is Dr. Wilhelm Rolf’s (William Utay) protégé – and Gwen is working with Rolf as well. It’s reasonable to think Gwen may be revealed as the pre-wedding saboteur – especially since Ciara was seemingly drugged on the eve of her wedding.
That’s Gwen’s MO now that we know what she’s been doing to Abigail DiMera (Marci Miller).
Days of Our Lives recently reminded fans of Gwen and Claire’s connection as they talked about Ciara at Julie’s Place. They may have been laying the groundwork for Claire to find out Gwen betrayed her down the road.
If Gwen was behind the sabotage incidents leading up to the wedding, then she’s got even more secrets and connections just waiting to be exposed.
