"will ever be" translation

"Will ever be" was one of the vocabulary terms given at the start of the exercise, but I couldn't find it. Then, "être un jour capable" was the phrase used in the exercise. Please explain this usage. Thanks.

Bonjour Tom !

Indeed, as Chris wrote, in this context of ever, this is the correct colloquial use of un jour. However, I agree it's quite a tricky case, even for C1, so I've decided to add a hint here to make it more straightforward :) 

I hope that's helpful!

Bonne journée !

I don't think there exists an "explanation" for the use of un jour meaning "ever". It simply is idiomatic.
