‘Days of Our Lives’: Evil Eve Targets Ben Weston – Slaps and Sets Him Up

Days of Our Lives spoilers show Eve Donovan (Kassie DePaiva) gets a pile of power next week and Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) needs to beware. The swearing-in ceremony for Jack Deveraux (Matthew Ashford) isn’t even done yet and already he’s shaking up Salem in disastrous ways. There are changes at city hall, the police department, and all over town. Jack has no idea what he’s unleashing when he puts Eve in charge at the Salem PD. Look at what’s next on DOOL on NBC.

Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Eve Donovan, Police Commissioner – What Could Go Wrong?

Of course, amnesiac Jack Deveraux thinks putting an ex-hooker in charge of the Salem cop shop is a great idea. Last week on DOOL, Jack didn’t like Hope Brady’s (Kristian Alfonso) sass and told her she’s fired as soon as he’s officially mayor. Ted Laurent (Gilles Marini) threatened to quit if he axed Hope. That didn’t slow Jack and wife Eve for a moment. He accepted Ted’s resignation so that clears the way for Jack to install people he wants. That sets the stage for Eve’s vendetta.

Before Eve gets the job, Jack first offers it to suspended Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering). In the past, Rafe served as chief, but he’s a single dad now and reeling from his quickie divorce, so he doesn’t want the job. And he doesn’t want to work side by side with Jack. Days of Our Lives spoilers say then that Eve Donovan realizes what she could do in the position. So she’ll convince Jack to give her the job. That should be easy since she’s convinced him to run for Mayor and lots of other things.

DOOL Spoilers: Ben Weston in the Crosshairs – Eve Slaps Him, Issues Warning

Not only does Hope lose her spot as top cop, but it looks like she’s off the force altogether. See the new Days of Our Lives spoilers promo below. Eve demands that she hand over her badge and gun. That sounds like a complete firing. Eli Grant (Lamon Archey) stands there stunned. Lani Price (Sal Stowers) and Rafe took leave. So, Eli stands as the only cop, it seems, after Hope’s fired. Eve Donovan says the PD “needs a shakeup” and she’s the woman for the job.

Then at the inauguration ceremony to make Jack the mayor officially and swear him in, Eve sets her sights on the man she hates most in Salem – Ben Weston. She assaults him in the town square and vows to make him pay for killing Paige Larson (True O’Brien). The court declared Ben mentally incompetent, but Eve doesn’t care. He must pay for his crimes. He killed her daughter and she wants him to pay. That’s understandable, but what she does next is diabolical, say DOOL spoilers.

Ben Knows Claire is the Cabin Firestarter – But He May Burn for Her Crime

According to Days of Our Lives spoilers, next week Ben Weston catches Claire Brady (Olivia Rose Keegan) red-handed with her lighter in hand, about to set another blaze. Crazy Claire is off her rocker and decides to make a bonfire of Tripp Dalton’s (Lucas Adams) clothes. Tripp dumped her like a hot rock for her dirty shenanigans against Haley Chen (Thia Megia). Everything she has done – burning the cabin and recording Tripp’s confession – was done to keep Tripp by Claire’s side.

Now that Claire lost Tripp, there’s nothing holding her fragile psyche together. DOOL spoilers say Ben sees her setting the fire with his lighter and puts it together. Then, he runs to Ciara Brady (Victoria Konefal) with his suspicions. But now, with Eve Donovan as Police Commish, even if Ben Weston has concrete proof of the crime, Eve would ignore it. To make matters worse, Eve decides to make Ben pay for Claire’s crimes. She thinks he deserves prison, so this is her way to make it happen.

Watch next week on NBC daytime to see Eve Donovan protect Claire from Ben Weston – since she couldn’t protect Paige from him. Ben’s time as a free man runs out soon if Eve gets her way…
