The world of daytime television can be interesting and sometimes outrageously ridiculous at times. You have characters (repeatedly) coming back from the dead, evil twins that emerge out of nowhere, mob-action, and super-spy adventures at every corner. At times, even the most bizarre soap opera storyline can have an interesting twist, but other times not so much. Below is a list of the nine most ridiculous daytime soap opera storylines – ever!
9. Sami’s Twins Have Two Different Fathers – Days of Our Lives
Days of Our Lives (DOOL) heroine Sami Brady has spent a good chunk of her love life going between two men: EJ DiMera, and Lucas Horton. In early 2007, Sami was left in quite a predicament. Literally making a deal with the devil as she slept with EJ in an attempt to save Lucas’ life. She later finds out she is pregnant…and so begins the struggle of figuring out the paternity of her unborn child. Except it turns out that there is not one baby in there, but two! As the children were fraternal twins, the storyline was possible (well, the chances are about one in a million), yet nonetheless quite ridiculous.
