    Weren't they both supposed to be looking for work? I missed a few episodes, did she mention getting a job again? Set up some interviews? Voice an interest in a career?

You're living in a hotel. ??
      I am a firm believer that a woman should make a great life for herself before inviting a man to join her. This woman was given a job that she didn't earn (and never shows up for) and lives with a former serial killer who gave her a part from her carburetor as an engagement ring. Where is her mama? Where is a strong aunt or better yet an uncle who can set her mind straight?

        ^^Hope nor Shawn would ever turn their back on Ciara. Hope can only keep an eye on her if she is in Ciara's life. She would be more worried
        if she never had any contact with Ciara. Plus, how lonely, to never have contact with your child.

        It is sad to think of all the times that Ciara has been affected by her parents' lives. The kid has taken the brunt of basically every enemy or bad decision they (her parents) have had/made. I feel sorry for her in that respect.

        dee2 I didn't say they should turn their backs on her. I said they should bypass any fear and be honest with her.

      They have sex, they make out everywhere, they make out in the shower. That's all they can think for them to do. They don't even talk to each other except for a few primal grunts that mean jump on my bones and have hot sex with me. I think they need a bucket of cold water thrown on them and then a proper story.

        Ciara is an important character on Days simply because she is Hope and Bo's daughter but the lack of a decent story for her is troublesome. She has been reduced to a young woman who wears clothes that are too tight, too low cut, too "in the camera's face" with an attempt at being sexy which fails because that person isn't our Ciara. Come on days! We watched this girl grow up and the lazy, condescending (calling Ben my "grease monkey") young woman is becoming someone to fast forward over. Ben has more chemistry with Stefan than he exhibits with Ciara. Write the girl a storyline, please.

          Ciara is young and beautiful. That is what young women do. They enjoy sex. Any woman who is dating Ben would want to have sex all the time. Ben is gorgeous.

            I like CIN..They are both young and hot. However I get tired of her humping his leg every time they have a conversation. Like dang back up a little.... 6 FEET!! lol.. You don't need to make out at his new place of business. Sheesh.. I'm more wondering tho if the original poster was talking about the outfits they have been putting her in lately rather than her actions?

She'd go to the ends of the earth for someone she cares about. She forgave the niece who tried to kill her..she forgave her bad-@ssed grandfather for being what he is....she was even at the same party with Jordan, who tried to burn her alive. She forgave that wimp Tripp, who perpetually placed his tongue down Claire's throat....and whom she caught under a blanket playing pin-my-tail-in-the-dumb-brat Brady. I like Ciara....she's got a lot of very good qualities....Days needs more like her.
              Fiercely loyal daughter? Hope was taken over by Princess Gina for a year and her “fiercely loyal daughter” did not even notice. For the rest, I sort of agree with you, except for the Claire part since Ciara vowed to ruin Claire’s life.

                So disloyalty and inattentiveness are one and the same? (I seem to remember Ciara asking Hope to lunch, calling Hope, but Gina/Hope had no interest in interaction with Ciara). I guarantee you that if anyone wanted to hurt Hope, Ciara would do ANYTHING to protect her mother.

              The show really needs some new material for Ciara. She's only used to be Ben's 24/7 support system and I'm honestly sick of it. I've started to FF all of their scenes because I'm just so bored.

                How is she a sex object? They barely show them have sex. It’s usually kissing and boom cut to black. And if Ciara is a sex object then so are the other women on this show.

                  If they showed them having sex, the FCC would be all over that. Could you imagine that, porn on Days...

                  Good point. Her sex scenes with Tripp (bare leg, blanket clutching, marathon sex, not even stopping to eat, etc) were widely acceptable, though....but I kinda agree, she needs a career, or a hobby. And just as soon as Ron reads this thread, I'm sure he'll write her one. What types of things would she be good at? Now, no-one should say fellatio....that's an absolute no-no. ??

                Yeah, a little too MUCH love in the afternoon if you ask me.

                  Didn't Victor fast-track her into the Kiriakis executive training program just before the time jump. Shouldn't she be running some division of Kiriakis by now?

                    Yes, she works there.

                    Yes, good idea. And when Tripp arrives back in Salem (soon, I bet), as a neurologist/cardiologist/urologist combo, there should be a love triangle.

                  Wait, so Ben didn’t even buy the part from the carburetor? It already belonged to Ciara.

                    Ridge was probably tired of buying wedding rings, and it wasn’t for Brooke; so he really wasn’t that into anyone else any way. How long did that marriage last between Ridge and Katie anyway? luv2write

                    Yeah. Totally lame for a guy who use to be Stefan's head of security. You'd think that would pay top dollar or at least enough to sit aside for a rainy day or diamond ring.

                    I thought about the string Ridge tied around Katie's finger and you know what happened to them. Money saved. CIN is suppose to be madly in love though so Ben should have coughed up 20 grand for her. This guy removed a washer from Bo's bike and stuck it on her finger.

                    I thought it was cute, and creative. Oh, and symbolic, too....mostly symbolic, since it was her adored father's bike. And weren't Bo Brady (and his bike) the essence of Days?
