The Bold and The Beautiful (B&B) has had many engaging and even sensational narratives since it first aired 31 years ago. But there have also been other plots, like the return of a legendary villain and a couple of whodunnits, that should have been memorable, but ended up being frustrating, anti-climatic and huge let-downs. Below are the B&B’s 12 truly disappointing storylines.
12. The Death of Darla
Darla had just finished throwing a 4th birthday party for her daughter Aly, when her husband Thorne’s niece called her to say she was stranded on the side of the highway with a flat tire. Unknown to Darla, 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 and she died in hospital shortly afterward. This storyline was a huge disappointment to fans as B&B lost a favorite character and a popular couple (Thorne and Darla) at the same time.
