Rhodes holds gun on Ciara on Days of Our Lives

At John and Marlena’s place, Susan has a vision of Ciara trying to escape from the bad, bad, bad man Rhodes. She narrates Ciara’s actions. Claire thinks Susan is describing Ciara’s ordeal with Vincent, but Susan says Ciara isn’t trapped in a car; she’s in a glass box. Susan loses her connection after seeing a gun. Ben asks her to try again so he knows Ciara is okay. Susan explains when her signal goes, it goes. However, she grabs his hands and sees Ciara again. She says Ciara is fighting because she’d rather die than spend another day away from Ben. Susan sees Ciara struggling for the gun and hears a gunshot, but things go dark again. Ben and Claire ask if she saw anything else. Susan says she saw a shark. She doesn’t know what it means, but it is the tattoo Rhodes has on his forearm. Ben orders her to try again, but Susan can’t do it. She needs to recharge and leaves to see Brady.

After Susan’s gone, Ben and Claire marvel over Susan’s visions — Ciara’s alive. Ben knows Ciara is counting on him to find her. He just has to figure out how. Claire knows he will. Ben thinks the key is his fortune that reads, “Nothing is ever lost if you follow your heart.”
