One of the best parts of soap operas is their ability to shock viewers. This can come in the form of adventure, new romances, and even character exits. Days of Our Lives (DOOL) has a nice history around their larger-than-life personalities bidding adieu to the land of Salem, and below are some of the best character exits that most fans didn’t see coming.
12. Will Horton
He’s back in the land of the living, but there was a time when Days fans were floored over Horton’s DOOL exit. There was a serial killer out on the loose in Salem, circa 2015, and when Will became his next victim, fans were shocked and outraged. Luckily for Horton, DOOL writers thought of a pretty nifty way to bring him back, and he is now once again a significant part of the show.
