I am also in love with Ciara and Ben! I wish they were on more often...twice a week is not enough. I thought this was supposed to be the "Summer of Cin!" Summer's almost over...at least in Canada
It would be great if they could some how explain that Ben wasn't responsible for murdering anyone to help redeem him...someone else on this board suggested that maybe Clyde could be somehow made responsible. That would suit me much better. I still don't know how Ben can stick around Salem with the number of people that totally hate his guts. It's already getting old watching people berate him and physically hurt him.
I wish they were on more too. They should be on 3-4 days a week minimum. Hopefully there screen time will increase.
Also, I think over time more people will grow to like Ben. It’s gonna take time, but I think more characters will grow to like him. He just has to continue to show he’s changed.
I think the audience is liking Ben with Ciara because they "click" together! For me, personally, and I've wanted to invest in her since she's Bo & Hope's daughter (hoping she'll carry their mantle which she's fully capable of doing), I'm hoping to SEE a redemption story from his past. Some think it's just "okay" since he SAYS he's changed and is acting so now, but with HIS record (IMO a serial killer is in a league of it's own) I think we need to SEE more like maybe that was an imposter killing those people, that old soapy "evil twin" story, SOME explanation of how all that happened, etc. It's GREAT for Ben to have "imperfections" and be a tough guy & not be a pushover to Ciara or anyone - THAT'S appealing - but killing as he did is much worse than an "imperfection" or just "saying" he's changed, etc. I think we need more of a redemption/reformation story than that. That's just what it'll take for ME to fully invest even tho others don't care about such!
