12 Most Shocking Cliffhangers In Soap Opera History
Television cliffhangers can be incredible and are one of the major reasons audiences keep tuning into their favorite shows week after week. Lucky for soap opera fans, Friday cliffhangers are almost a guaranteed weekly treat. At times they can get pretty outrageous despite how entertaining they may be. Below is a list of the 12 most insane cliffhangers in soap opera history.
12. Days Marlena Wakes Up On An Island Filled With Ghosts
Days of Our Lives (DOOL) fans may have thought it was all a dream in 2004 when Marlena awoke to find herself on an island surrounded by friends and family she believed were dead. Alas, it came to be the big reveal around the Melaswen Island story where fans thought all their favorite characters had been killed off by a serial killer, when Stefano DiMera was really just stashing them away on a secret island.
11. Y&R Characters Are Trapped Due To An Explosion
The “Out of Ashes” storyline that took place in 2007 was a crazy one. As the story goes, a resort and casino was being erected in a little town close to Genoa City, called Clear Springs. As luck would have it that day pretty much every prominent member of GC was in the area for one reason or another before disaster struck. The building collapsed, causing many to be trapped in the area. Soaps in general love a solid explosions cliffhanger and this left many Young and the Restless (Y&R) fans wondering which of their favorite characters may meet their demise after this storyline was said and done.
