Days Of Our Lives’ 7 Most Ridiculous Deaths
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.
6. Alex North Falls Of A Cliff
Soaps simply love cliff scenes! Whether it’s lovers diving off cliffs together into water, important evidence being thrown into the air over a cliff, and of course, characters landing to their doom when they fall over a cliff. Death by a cliff is exactly what happened to Alex North. If you were an avid DOOL fan back in the summer of 2005, and missed a week or a couple of DOOL episodes, you may have been confused. Wayne Northrop originally played Marlena’s love interest, Roman Brady in the ‘80s and returned as a completely different character in the mid-2000s. Oddly enough, Alex North was Marlena’s first husband (in storylines), and while she was in love with John, she ended up trying to keep her commitment to North when he strolled into town. On their honeymoon in late 2006, John found information that revealed North as a fraud. He followed the couple to a tropical island, called North on his deceptions, and the two men had a dramatic fight scene, which had North fly to his death over a cliff.
