Soap opera fans get attached to the characters they watch on their favorite daytime dramas. How can they not? Audiences watch their trials and tribulations daily each week and get highly invested in their lives. When a character exits a show, fans are devastated. Below are nine characters we wish never left their soap opera.
9. GH’s Patrick Drake
General Hospital (GH) fans fell in love with Dr. Patrick Drake when he entered the land of Port Charles in 2005. He swooned Robin Scorpio off her feet and the two of them ended up getting married and having little Emma. Their love story was a beautiful one that did turn into a roller coaster of a romance. While Drake’s 2015 exit was a happy one since he’d remarried Robin and relocated his family to California, GH fans were still sad to see him leave.
