DAYS OF OUR LIVES

Original “Cin”

DAYS was faced with an enormous obstacle when Victoria Konefal decided to leave the role of Ciara. Her über-successful pairing with Robert Scott Wilson’s Ben was arguably the buzziest romance the soap had seen in years, and to move ahead without her was a risky proposition. Fortunately, Konefal agreed to appear on a recurring basis, and the writers are mining the time they have with her for all it’s worth, scripting a tale that doesn’t have Ben and Ciara together physically, but connects them metaphysically. Though Ciara is presumed dead, Ben refuses to accept that she’s gone. He felt her spirit at Christmas in beautiful scenes at the Horton family tree and now, thanks to Susan’s visions, believes she’s out there somewhere and is determined to find her. Ciara, meanwhile, is being held captive, reading Shakespeare, longing for Ben and trying to get free. It may not be the ideal storyline for fans, but kudos to the soap for finding a way to keep the “Cin” flame burning.
