There isn’t a soap opera fan alive that doesn’t look forward to Fridays. The last day before the weekend generally signals big events or a reveal on a soap show, and sometimes if fans are lucky, they’ll get a huge cliffhanger to hang on to until Monday. Nobody does cliffhangers quite like Days of Our Lives (DOOL). Whether a wedding is stopped, a baby is kidnapped, or someone gets shot, DOOL knows how to end a week in Salem with a bang! Below are 10 of DOOL’s most shocking cliffhangers.
10. Marlena Sees Alice
Seems innocent enough that Marlena would run into a neighbor in Salem, but not back in 2004. If DOOL viewers remember back that far, Salem had a serial killer where all arrows pointed towards Marlena Evans. Fans mourned as they watched one popular character after another die at the hands of a murderer. However, after Marlena was gunned down by police and thought to be dead as well, DOOL fans were shocked to see Marlena wake up on a strange island, only to see her long-time friend, Alice Horton, who was a victim of the serial killings, alive and well.
