Soap Opera’s 10 Most Iconic Moments
8. Y&R’s Victor Gets A New Heart
Back in 2009, Victor was involved in a little feud with strong-willed Colleen Carlton, his goddaughter. As luck would have it, on the same day that he suffered a heart attack and needed a transplant, Colleen was rushed to the hospital after being kidnapped by the insane Patty Williams. Colleen drowned in a lake as she tried to escape Williams and arrived at the hospital brain dead. Despite the fact that Victor had been at the helm of many tragedies her family suffered, Colleen’s mom Traci granted her daughter’s heart to Victor in order to save his life. You’d think a new heart from a loving person would’ve changed Victor’s ways, but it did not.
7. DOOL’s First Super Couple Tie The Knot
When Days’ Doug and Julie hooked up back in the 1970s, it was an affair to remember! Dubbed the first super couple of the soap opera world, they hit the cover of Time Magazine in 1976 and the world took notice of daytime dramas. Then came their lavish wedding in and around that time and all of Salem’s ‘who’s who’ attended the big nuptials. It was a huge event, so much so, that about 16 million people tuned in to watch Doug and Julie say ‘I do.’
