Standing up for Salem’s reformed killer.

Days of our Lives spoilers indicate that Ben asks Will to be his best man despite having previously told Ciara Brady (Victoria Konefal) that he didn’t want to put Will Horton (Chandler Massey) in such an awkward position.

The pair didn’t exactly have great beginnings as Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) strangled Will and was thought to have killed him after he realized that Ben was the Necktie Killer. After treatment, Ben interrupted Sonny Kiriakis’ (Freddie Smith) wedding to Paul Narita (Christopher Sean) to declare that Will was actually alive, though he couldn’t produce him. Ben was sent back to the institution after tangling with Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney) who wanted him to re-enact Will’s death to jolt him out of his amnesia, so they could discover Will’s whereabouts. Will surfaced, with amnesia, but eventually remembered who he was. Despite his grandmother Marlena Evans’ (Deidre Hall) bond with Ben, Will wasn’t forgiving toward his strangler.

When Will and Ben ended up in prison together, they became friends against all odds as Will’s experience gave him a different perspective on Ben’s crimes. Regardless, many in Salem still see Ben as a serial killer, so standing up for him at his wedding may prove to be asking too much from Will.

That said, Will is strong-minded and will likely do as he wishes – if he decides to stand up for Ben, who protected him in prison, then that’s exactly what he’ll do no matter who objects.

Either way, the wedding is bound to be a tense one what with Firestarter Claire Brady out of Bayview and ‘anticipating Ben and Ciara’s wedding’. We know from summer previews that “There will be a wedding once a week in July – and not all will go smoothly, which will lead up to a funeral.” Also, Robert Scott Wilson teased an epic wedding in his exclusive interview with Soaps.com. Could it be at Ben and Ciara’s nuptials where things go awry?

Do you think Will would agree to be Ben’s best man? Vote, then visit Days of our Lives spoilers to see which two characters will demand the truth.
