Days of our Lives fans get a blast from the past Wednesday June 6, 2018 when Robert Scott Wilson reprises his role as Ben, the man with a necktie fetish!

We last saw the handsome and talented Massachusetts native in Salem in June 2016. He debuted as a kinder, gentler version of The Necktie Killer in 2014, and was seen intermittently through the years.

What has Wilson been up to lately? Most recently he’s been involved in a couple of films, Fright Fest and Papa, both of which are in post-production.

In 2017 Wilson starred alongside William Shatner in the independent film Relic, and he was cast in The Girl Who Cried Wolf, directed by Rob Malenfant.

Easy-on-the-eyes Wilson has previously modeled for Ford Models of Los Angeles and he’s currently signed with LA Models. Fun fact: Wilson was the first permanent male model on the game show, The Price Is Right.

So, what has Wilson’s alter ego been up to? Last week he convinced Dr. Marlena (Deidre Hall) that he’s fit enough to be released from prison. Most of the townsfolk disagree, but we shall see!

Ben has served his time, but Abigail (Marci Miller) among others remember the heck he put them through. Ben’s first stop will be to see his victim Will (Chandler Massey) who he killed in a gruesome scene with a nice necktie (long soapy story!).

Spoilers reveal that Ben gets his first shot at redemption when he comes across an injured Ciara (Victoria Konefal). After spying a shattering scene with her boyfriend and frenemy getting up to no good, the vixen races off on her motorcycle and crashes in the boonies.

Lucky for her, Ben takes her to a secluded cabin. Let’s hope he does the right thing and helps, not hurts, her!
