I know most posters here hate CIN, and I get it. And I wish the chemistry between the 2 actors didn't involve one character that was a serial killer. But that can't be changed now, well unless they create a doppelganger, and it's probably too late for that.
However, as a CIN fan, I love how their relationship has been a slow build, kinda like the super couples back in the 80s. Again I wish they'd never made Ben the serial killer. He could have been a "bad" guy without going to that extreme. But that was a different writer, who was obsessed with Chabby and couldn't see RSW's potential.
Hope is clearly not thrilled about the engagement. And, when Ciara mentioned Bo giving his blessing, I imagined the eyerolls/groans from this forum. But with a soap opera everyone accepts the ridiculous. I wasn't watching at the time, but didn't a dead swamp baby end up being Bo's daughter? Or something like that. LOL.
It would be nice if the show had the budget to have the wedding at St. Lukes with with a real priest/pastor, but I suspect we'll have a wedding at the park with Julie or Marlena officiating, and barely no guests. Poor Ciara doesn't even have a best friend to be a bridesmaid, or throw a shower for her, or friends to attend. They really ruined that group of SORASed teens, didn't they.
