9 Most Ridiculous Soap Opera Deaths
7. DOOL’s Death By Pinata
Rewinding a few years, we come to Days of Our Lives (DOOL) Salem Stalker angle that ruled the show for months. Beloved DOOL characters were dying everywhere in weird and ridiculous ways. A fairly new character on the scene, Cassie Brady, found herself a victim to the stalker in 2003, dying thanks to a stab from a Thanksgiving piñata.

6. Y&R’s Doppelganger Death
The soap opera world mourned the death of talented actress Jeanne Cooper when she passed away in 2013, leaving an incredible acting legacy behind her. Her portrayal of Katherine Chancellor was amazing and Y&R fans still miss the actress and character terribly. Her character certainly had her ups and downs, but one storyline stands out above the rest. One unbelievable storyline was when Genoa City thought she was dead. Driving her doppelganger Marge Catrooke to rehab (the women looked identical to her even though they weren’t related), they got into an accident and Marge died instantly. Kay was thrown from the vehicle, but everyone just assumed Marge was Kay and the Chancellor family mourned the loss of their matriarch. Kay was later found by Murphy (Marge’s friend) which launched a beautiful love story between the two.
