‘Days of Our Lives’ spoilers report that Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) has had enough, Jordan Ridgeway (Chrishell Hartley) is still determined to take it all on herself, and John Black isn’t sure if he wants the truth today in Salem. Also, there’s a big Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart) revelation. In case you missed all the Days of Our Live spoilers, let’s get you some highlights with your Days of Our Lives recap for the day.
‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Breaking Point
Ben is furious, having been accused by Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso) of kidnapping Ciara Brady (Victoria Konefal), and he’s got one person he’s really putting the blame on: Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall). She’s out walking by herself when she comes across Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) who can’t bring himself to sit at home with Rex Brady (Kyle Lowder) and Sarah Horton (Linsey Godfrey) around.
They’re talking about the situation between Eric and Sarah when Ben approaches and calls Marlena a quack. He accuses her of breaking his trust and putting Ciara at risk by apparently helping to put the focus of the kidnapping on him. She tries to explain things, but Ben’s decided she and the rest can all go to hell. He’s going to find Ciara.

Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Taking it on herself
Speaking of Ciara’s disappearance, the real culprit, Jordan stops by Abigail Deveraux’s (Kate Mansi) place to chat. She focuses most of the conversation on Ben and whether or not she feels threatened by him. She makes a point of saying how Ben snapped after he found out Thomas wasn’t his, and worries about Charlotte. Abigail assures her that she isn’t worried now, although she was a little nervous when she found out Ben was working for Stefan DiMera (Tyler Christopher). Jordan points out it’s late, and Abigail’s probably on an early schedule now with two little ones at home, so she says she’ll see herself out. While Abigail is carrying a tea set back into the kitchen, Jordan takes a bit of a detour upstairs. This is not looking good.
DOOL Spoilers: Who’s His Daddy?
Speaking of not looking good, the evidence seems to be pointing to John Black (Drake Hogestyn) being Leo’s father. The thought is, obviously, not very appealing to him and his main concern is for how Marlena will feel about John being related to the guy who’s making her grandson suffer. Yeah, that’s definitely going to make for some awkward family time…
John was going to stop by to see Diana Cooper (Judith Chapman) again, but found Marlena was still outside the pub and changes his mind. That was both a good and a bad thing, depending on one’s perspective…
While all that is going on, Diana is having a chat with her son. He’d shown up with a one-way ticket out of town, demanding she leave immediately. And we have to take a moment to admire the positive thinking he’s got going on to believe that’s going to work out. Doesn’t he remember her slapping him across the face and getting him to cower like a scared pup, or did he just block that one out? Predictably, mommy isn’t having it and wants a few answers as to why he’s even doing this whole fake marriage thing.
This leads to a big argument where they drag out the past, Leo accusing her of being ashamed of her gay son, but she said his sociopathic tendencies are her real problem. She then throws out the juicy little tidbit we’re sure Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith) and Will Horton (Chandler Massey) would love to get: he killed his father. At least, the guy he thinks is his father. Apparently, he was quite abusive, and he and mom had a lot of interesting fights at home, which ended up getting Leo to kill the guy. He accuses her of making a saint out of the guy now that he’s dead, and she thinks he should go now. Anyone wanna take bets on how fast she ends up singing?
Also today: Claire Brady (Olivia Rose Keegan) doesn’t seem as concerned as she maybe should about Ciara being missing. Her top priority seems to be a bit of jealousy over Tripp Dalton’s (Lucas Adams) worry for her.
