‘Days of Our Lives’ (DOOL) spoilers reveal there’s a lot of reasons not to like Clyde Weston (James Read). He’s a terrible man. This is the guy who abused Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) so badly, he ended up the way he did.
Plus, he didn’t treat the rest of the family much better. However, we’ve seen another side to this guy over the past year or so, and we can’t really hate him that much right now. Let’s break it down.
‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Example #1
So, the first hint that Clyde might be changing for the better came during Ben’s prison nightmare. He was there for his son and even helped him escape when it looked like Ben was about to die for a crime he didn’t commit.
It looked like the shock of seeing a son about to die forced him to be a better person. At least, where Ben is concerned. In fact, recent events show he could be one of the best things to happen to Ben since Ciara Brady (Victoria Konefal).
‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Example #2
See, he’s so bent of revenge, so lost in pain, Ben doesn’t care about anything anymore. He’s ready to throw his entire life away to get back at the man who took Ciara from him. It’s a destructive thing, even if the feelings might be understandable.
When Clyde escaped and went running to Ben, this was great timing. Maybe even fate at work. It wasn’t like Clyde planned that escape. He got offered an out at the last second. But now, Ben has someone who him who’s trying to talk sense into him. And this is where we think this character made a great stride personally.
‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: How we see it
We think the near-execution and time in jail did Clyde good. He seems to be genuinely concerned for Ben. In fact, he admitted Ben is the only reason he broke out. Hearing him talk about trusting in the justice system and letting them handle Vincent was like listening to a pod person talk.
It’s such a huge shift from the character’s past. Look at what happened before. Clyde wanted to escape and talked Ben into it. When he came to visit Ben now, he admitted his reason for going along with the new escape plan was to be there for Ben.
This story shows even some of the mostly unlikely types can actually change and become better people. And for Ben, this is coming right on time. We’ll see if Clyde’s able to stick around for Ben and work more on repairing this relationship.
