Victoria Konefal is heading back to “Days of our Lives,” and this time Ciara Brady isn’t a ghost.

When Ben (Robert Scott Wilson) makes an admission to Claire (Isabel Durant) about Ciara on the Thursday, January 28 episode of the soap, little does he know but his beautiful bride is alive and well, and not the ghost he’s been envisioning since her “death.”

According to the newest issue of Soap Opera Digest, on newsstands now, the magazine highlights a photo of Ciara being held captive by a mystery man who could very well be played by actor and singer Jason Downs. The soap recently hired Downs for the role of Rhodes who is said to have a connection to Ciara.

Konefal last appeared on “DAYS” during the Christmas holiday as a vision of Ben’s.

Last year, Konefal announced via Deadline her plans to leave “DAYS” after portraying Ciara Brady since 2017.

“I cherish every moment I have spent working on ‘Days of our Lives.'” said Konefal to the publication. “It is an honor and a privilege to work in an environment filled with so much talent and passion in every direction. The experience and knowledge I’ve accumulated over the past three years is irreplaceable, and I’m forever grateful for it. I would love the opportunity to continue working with my castmates in the future, but at this time I will not be returning as a full-time cast member.

“To the cast and crew, it was an absolute pleasure working with you. To the loving and unwaveringly supportive fans, thank you. Thank you for joining me on my journey of finding Ciara Brady. It was a beautiful one. Cheers to some of the best days of my life.”

At press time, it was unclear whether Konefal’s appearance would be longer than the upcoming episode’s revelation.
