They were already at odds over his job with Stefan, but with even more information coming to light, it appears Ben and Ciara’s relationship is set to fall apart completely on the Thursday, Jan. 10 episode of “Days of Our Lives.”

Ben (Robert Scott Wilson) was already in hot water with his girlfriend after Ciara (Victoria Konefal) was informed that he had kidnapped Gabi (Camila Banus) on Stefan’s (Tyler Christopher) orders. Since then on the NBC soap, she has wondered if she can really be with him while he worked for the most evil man in Salem, and Ben took action to make sure his job wasn’t an obstacle anymore. Though he didn’t know if anyone else would hire him, he went to quit—only to learn Chad (Billy Flynn) was now his boss. Though he didn’t want to hire the man who once tried to kill him and Abigail (Kate Mansi), he agreed to give him a two-week trial as his head of security—if he ended his relationship with Ciara.

However, Ciara has also learned something else that is bothering her about her relationship. She overheard Claire (Olivia Keegan) leaving Ben a message to fix his relationship as per their deal, and was horrified when her roommate admitted that she and Ben had conspired to end her previous relationship with Tripp (Lucas Adams). Now, she wants answers from Ben as well.

Still, even if his explanation is satisfactory, it doesn’t seem like the pair’s romance is meant to be, at least for now. “DOOL” spoilers reveal that Ben and Ciara break up.

Now, despite their connection, one of Salem’s newest couples will be over because of the challenges they’ve had to face. Still, they may be able to find their way back to one another later—but only if something drastic changes and gives them a real chance.

“Days of Our Lives” airs weekdays on NBC.
