With some of the soap opera shows currently on the air for over five decades, daytime dramas have two major challenges, one being to create compelling content that will bring in new and younger viewers and another is to develop storylines that older fans haven’t seen before. This can be a struggle as long-time soap fans have seen it all before. Therefore, below are 12 soap opera storylines fans are totally sick of.
12. GH’s Cassadine Curse
When General Hospital’s (GH) Luke and Laura got married in 1981, Helena Cassadine cursed the couple, launching a feud that lasted decades. A slew of Cassadines have died over the years only to return to Port Charles to continue the curse and rivalry with the Spencers, including Helena herself, her son Stavros, and now Valentin. With the entire Jason/Drew storyline moving forward, and Helena’s name mentioned on the show multiple times, fans can’t help but speculate if she’ll return from the dead? Many fans hope not simply because they are tired of the curse and rivalry and just want it to go away.
