Is anyone ever really dead in the land of soap operas? Most times, they are not, but that is the beauty around certain plot twists. Fans pay close attention to these scenes to see if there are any hints as to whether a character will be able to come back later from the dead. Deaths scenes on daytime drama can be shocking, saddening, and more often than not, completely ridiculous! Below is a list of seven Days of Our Lives (DOOL) most ridiculous deaths.
7. Stefano DiMera, Circa 1991
The cat undoubtedly has nine lives, and as much as DOOL storylines lead to a death scene with this villian, he almost always manages to live to see another day. Stefano DiMera could easily have a list of his own when it comes to ridiculous deaths, but the most interesting one was in the 1990s. Our daytime hero, John Black found Stefano in a Mexican Mayan pyramid and as the two men struggled in a cave, the structure collapsed. A gun is fired and DiMera fell to his death into fire. The death scene was completely over the top. Did it really kill Stefano? Nope … DiMera returned years later to wreak havoc on Salem without a hitch.
