Soap opera fans get attached to the characters they watch on their favorite daytime dramas. How can they not? Audiences watch their trials and tribulations daily each week and get highly invested in their lives. When a character exits a show, fans are devastated. Below are nine characters we wish never left their soap opera.

9. GH’s Patrick Drake

General Hospital (GH) fans fell in love with Dr. Patrick Drake when he entered the land of Port Charles in 2005. He swooned Robin Scorpio off her feet and the two of them ended up getting married and having little Emma. Their love story was a beautiful one that did turn into a roller coaster of a romance. While Drake’s 2015 exit was a happy one since he’d remarried Robin and relocated his family to California, GH fans were still sad to see him leave.

Young and the Restless’ (Y&R) Avery Clark blew into Genoa City in 2011. As the sister of Phyllis Summers, Clark brought an interesting storyline with her that involving a dark family history. Avery quickly bonded with niece Summer and became friends with pivotal characters like Nick Newman, Michael Baldwin, and even wowed Victor with her lawyer skills too. Sadly, Clark picked up and left the little town in 2015. The good news is she can always easily move back to Genoa City and return to the show. Here’s hoping.
