"Days of our Lives" viewers were stunned, this week, when Bo (<strong>Peter Reckell</strong>) and Hope's (<strong>Kristian Alfonso</strong>) only daughter, Ciara (<strong>Vivian Jovanni</strong>) was raped at the hands of her step brother Chase (<strong>Jonathon McClendon</strong>). Sure, the young teen seemed a bit off and moody, but nobody suspected he could ever be capable of such violence, especially against someone he claimed to truly care about like Ciara. 

With new head writers on the horizon it was inevitable that "Days of our Lives" would also be getting a new teen scene, especially with what executive producer <strong>Ken Corday</strong> <a href="http://www.tvinsider.com/article/34392/first-look-days-of-our-lives-grows-a-new-teen-set-practically-overnight" target="_blank">says</a> to <em>TV Insider</em>'s <strong>Michael Logan</strong> of something his late mother, Betty, used to share with him: "'You have to water the roots of the [Days of our Lives]<em> </em>tree with a new generation every 10 years or so' and that’s what we’ve done," notes Corday to Logan. "These are the children of the children of the children of the children, and they are vital to our future."
