True, Bo was a bad guy riding in on his motorcycle, but he had a good heart and went on to become one of Salem's finest and has always been a beloved character.
Ben, from the start, had anger issues and it even worried Abby, then he became a stalker and of course, a serial killer.
My question is, how can the Bo and Hope fans, who we ALL probably are, even THINK that Ben would EVER compare or measure up to Bo Brady? "If" Bo was still alive, I don't think he'd be too happy with his daughter dating a serial killer.
What am I missing?

I'm not sure they remind me of Bo and Hope. It's too early to tell.....but they do seem connected and able to reach each other in a way that no one else can. I think yesterday's episode with Tripp and Ciara preparing to get it on, was Ciara running from this connection. She is scared of it!
I used to be on the other side, back when EJ raped Sami. I cursed EJ over and over again and thought people were crazy for wanting him and Sami together lol. But I guess I've grown into someone that doesn't take it all that serious anymore. Perhaps if they didn't have such strong chemistry together, I wouldn't be rooting for them....and I'd probably call Ciara dumb and whatever else I can think of. But to me when they are on screen together, they make it all worth watching. No one is ignoring the fact that Ben is a serial killer. It's all being faced and dealt with....and both actors are doing a wonderful job displaying their conflicted emotions and inner battles. It's believable and entertaining the way they are playing their parts. I'm not looking for another Bo and Hope in this. I'd like to see something new. The show is moving with the times, I guess. This is def not the same show I started watching in 1996 lol.
I even enjoyed watching Marlena's battle with it all....her head wants to say NO to Ben, but she can't help but see the growth and potential in him. Ciara and Ben's story is why I watch right now.

However, his sweet, innocent child-like smile is starting to bother me. I hope we’re not being taken in by a manipulating criminal.
