As with any soap opera, The Bold and The Beautiful (B&B) has had many characters come and go since it first aired more than 30 years ago. But there have also been some exits no one saw coming. Many were huge disappointments, either because they were sent to Forrester International in Paris (where most B&B characters disappear), or the character was a fan favorite and his or her exit came out of nowhere. Below are the B&B’s 12 character exits no one saw coming.

12. Darla Einstein
Darla had just finished throwing a birthday party for her young daughter Aly when Phoebe Forrester called her to say she was stranded on the side of the highway with a flat tire. Unfortunately, Phoebe had also called her mother, Taylor, who’d had a couple of drinks earlier in the day and was now rushing to her daughter’s aid. It was a foggy night, and as Darla was changing Phoebe’s tire, Taylor’s vehicle came speeding towards her. Taylor hit Darla, who passed away in hospital shortly afterward. This character’s exit was a shock to fans as B&B lost a favorite character and a popular couple (Thorne and Darla) at the same time.
