What Will Be the Outcome?

The whole wedding sham is infuriating. I dislike the way that Ben kidnapped Ciara, even if it was done for “true love.” What kind of person takes an amnesiac woman away from her wedding on the wedding day? If Ben really loved her as much as he maintains, he would allow her to go on with her life instead of trying to force her to remember the past.

I highly doubt that his experiment with doing this will work, unless they recast Ciara or write both characters out of the show. What are your thoughts about this?

Unless the actress that plays Ciera signs a contract for a reasonable amount of time I think the character should be written out.

I feel the same way, but really don’t want to lose the daughter of a legacy couple. Maybe she could could get her memory back - but too late. Ben’s moved on with someone else. And maybe, just maybe Ciara will have learned a lot about growing into a mature
young woman.
Especially when Ben and his young family come back to Salem to take care of his ailing father.

I’ve never been a fan nor a hater of Ben & Ciara. But this entire storyline can’t end soon enough. I’m all for a Ciara recast at this point or just write her out. It shouldn’t be too hard since Hope is out of the picture as well. Ben’s only storyline is his constant attempts to get his wife back…enough!

I think that they should let them be happy offscreen, or give Ben another purpose. If he needs another love interest, I wish that it could be someone either new in town or not a relative of Ciara’s. I did like the scenes when Jake and Ben were friends at the garage together.

Oh yeah. Ben & Jake as buds could have a great time together. Might even take Ben’s mind off Ciara. Surely Gaby has a friend or two to introduce Ben too.

I second that! So tired of her and her (Ciara/VK) character. Please producers sign another actress who is willing to commit long term…that’s why we keep getting theses stupid story lines of her and Ben, cause she is not on long enough…

Since the actress will be hither and yon (mostly yon), let Ciara and Ben take a nice long honeymoon on a continent that is not Africa. They return to set up a business in Horton Square, where they interact with everyone in town, but we see them only occasionally, sipping lattes at a Starbuckish place. We need a break from their nonstop angst. And let them remain childless until they’re much older! :grinning:

And have most of their lives off camera! I think the actor playing Ben is terrible and Ciara is a royal biotch

Agreed they need to stop kissing Victoria’s ass and recast. There’s plenty of actresses who will kill for chance to act on long running soap. So many that would actually commit.

Actually one more gripe. lol
When Abe was talking to Theo about rushing into this marriage, didn’t Theo say (paraphrasing) well, if I don’t, it will upset/stress out Ciara. Yeah, that’s the best reason for getting married that I have ever heard! :thinking:

Did I miss something? When did Ciara/Ben go to court to get a divorce so she could legally marry Theo? Last I saw, they were fighting over Justin being each one’s lawyer and as they were leaving Ben told Ciara about it being their anniversary this coming Thursday. She calls Theo and ask what he has planned for Thursday.
Secondly, who in their right mind would plan a wedding or party in Salem—-I mean—seriously?!? :joy:
But anyway moving on, I do agree this storyline has drawn out way too long. If Victoria doesn’t want to be on DOOL, then the best end to this story would have been her demise when the room blew up. Ben could have grieved and begin to move on with his life. If Hope is not coming back, I would have hated to see the super couple’s daughter gone as well, but like others have said, stop pandering to one actor.
Lastly, as for Ciara, Ben, and Theo, I know this is going to be a novel idea to you three (plus others on dool) —-Get a JOB!!! Do something productive!!!
And as to the writers, if you had used the motorcycle “kidnapping” storyline (as with Bo and Hope) which Ben and Claire talked about—-you would have thoroughly peeved a lot of fans off. Make no mistake, Ben and Ciara are not in the same league as the super couple Bo and Hope and will never be!
Sorry, this was so long
OK done venting!

It was basically glazed over. There was merely a sentence from Ciara saying grandpa bought me an annulment. Guessing Victor paid off a judge.

How convenient for her. Ciara never seems to remember Victor is her Grandpa until she needs something! Get rid of her please.

Ben and Ciara both need to go! BORING…

Well with the new Peacock mini-series, it appears Ben & Ciara obviously end up back together. I just wonder if this will take them off the regular DOOL lineup for awhile?

I hope so!

Boring and annoying as well. I really wish these two would go.

i am very happy they are having the mini series. That I don’t have to watch a lot of Ciera.

I liked Ben and Cierra (I know I’m in the minority). Unfortunately she’s just gotten so nasty…I’m just really done with her. I wasn’t a fan of that “pschyic link” they had going on but then Marlena and John did that too sssooo whatever. I wish they wouldn’t have had Been as the “neck tie killer” but then practically everyone in Salem has done some dastardly deed and gotten away with it. Soooooo whatever. Keep Cierra or recast her. Doesn’t matter that much. I rather like the new Clair better than the old one.

I’m kinda expecting Ben and Cierra to get back together then we’ll have a “pregnancy” issue as she carries Theo’s baby. He kidnaps it and runs away. LOL everybody’s baby gets kidnapped or switched in Salem. The worse place to have a baby
