Just as soap fans are enthusiastic when a favorite character makes a surprise return, they get upset and agitated when a beloved character makes a startling exit. This year, the Bold And The Beautiful (B&B), Days Of Our Lives (DOOL), General Hospital (GH) and the Young And The Restless (Y&R) stunned viewers with some unanticipated departures. The following are 12 of the most surprising character exits of 2020.
12. Theo Vanderway – Y&R
Theo was a relatively new character, having just joined the Y&R in May 2019; however, viewers were still surprised that he was being written out so soon. He and Kyle shared a classic rivalry and even found out they were cousins. But after their grandmother Dina passed away, Theo decided to sue the Abbotts for her inheritance, which led to them offering him the Abbott matriarch’s boutiques in Paris. Theo accepted and left for Paris in December.
