This year has been a big one for soap operas and daytime drama fans. Days of Our Lives celebrated an incredible 50-year milestone on television, Luke Spencer gave a very tearful goodbye on General Hospital, and as Victor and Jack continue to their age-long vendetta against each other, soap fans have been treated to some pretty incredible moments in 2015. Still, there have been a handful of not-so-great soap storylines, and below are the best of the worst storylines for the year of 2015 in daytime television.
7. Who Killed Austin? – Young and the Restless
The ‘who dunnit’ Young and the Restless (Y&R) storyline around Austin’s murder that involved Kevin, Summer, Mariah, Noah, Courtney, Abby, and Fenmore was just all-around lame. There were some interesting pieces of the story (that is, the reveal of Abby’s affair with Austin); however, the storyline seemed to fit younger-aged characters. Sure, Austin, Fen, Summer, and Courtney are in their 20s, but having Abby, Noah, Mariah and Kevin involved in the group-like scenario was terrible. As older, rational adults, the way they handled things was irresponsible to say the least. Besides, did fans really care that Austin was dead, or who did it?
