9 Most Ridiculous Soap Opera Deaths
People coming back to life in the land of soap operas is not a new thing. In fact, the reasoning behind why and how some characters are resurrected from the dead can often be outrageous. Even more unbelievable than coming back to life is often how soap opera characters meet their demise in the first place. As such, below are nine of the most ridiculous deaths in soap operas.
9. Y&R Stalker Uses Fire Poker To Kill Victims
A fire poker … really? More often than not, serial killers will use a gun, knife, or a rope of some kind to kill off soap opera characters in a storyline wrapped in mystery. When Young and the Restless’ (Y&R) Austin Travers wound up dead (and stuffed in an armoire) on Valentine’s Day 2015, Y&R fans knew they had a crazy murder mystery on their hands. Courtney Sloane ended up being another victim. How did the killer end his victim’s lives? Death by fire poker of all things. Beyond ridiculous … especially when the killer was found to be a police officer on GCPD.
8. GH’s Katherine Bell Dies Twice, From The Same Thing
Imagine this: dying from an incident only to come back to life and die from that very same incident again. In 1998, General Hospital’s (GH) Katherine Bell died after an accident that involved her falling off a parapet. Thankfully, Helena Cassadine was able to bring her back to life using experimental medicine … only to push poor Katherine off that same parapet months later causing her to die for good this time. One thing to consider here: if you died via a fall from a parapet once, wouldn’t you avoid being anywhere near a parapet for rest of your life?
