Ben and Ciara make out like bandits at the DiMera mansion but as soon as they part, Ben says the kiss doesn’t mean they should be together. Ciara asks to take things slow like they did in the cabin. He’d give her the whole world if he could. All Ciara wants is him. Suddenly, shots are fired through the patio doors. Ben drags Ciara to the floor and rushes her to the foyer, where Chloe and Stefan run to find out what’s going on. Ben yells to get down. Shots keep firing and Ben rushes into the lounge again. Stefan protects the women and Ben returns. There’s a single shooter who left a card which has a symbol of a sun stamped into it. Chloe panics – the symbol is El Fideo’s. That shooter was there to kill her! Everyone moves back to the lounge and Chloe thanks Ben. Ciara thinks about ‘what ifs’ and Chloe thinks the shooter must have thought she was her since her hair was longer when she was in Mexico. Ben takes Ciara home and Stefan goes with Chloe to her room where she worries if they’ll return when her kids are at home. “I can’t live like this,” she exclaims. Stefan vows to protect her.
