Soap Opera’s 7 Worst Character Exits
5. GH’s Patrick and Emma Drake (Robin Scorpio Too …)
It’s always nice when characters leave in a happily ever type of way, but sometimes it can be lame and seem too perfect. In late 2015, Patrick was with Sam until her so-called dead husband (and love of her life) Jason was revealed to be alive. Patrick ended it with Sam and it should have been devastating for him, but it ended up being perfect timing! Being single afforded him the opportunity to save his baby momma’s life (along with her parents, super spies Anna and Robert). Patrick and Robin realized that they still love each other and they could now be a family again with Emma. The two both got job opportunities in California, decided to move there and they got married in Port Charles before they headed off. Nice little neat and tidy bow around this storyline! It was such a happy, but lame, character exit for Patrick, Emma, and Robin.
4. Days’ Will Horton
The passing of Will Horton in 2015 was shocking. Salem’s Necktie Serial Killer was running amok and who would have ever thought that a DOOL staple character in the form of Will Horton would be one of his victims? Many Days‘ fans out there believed an iconic and same-sex trailblazing character such as Will deserved better. Did DOOL make a huge mistake by axing Horton? Well, Chandler Massey, the actor who played a teenage and adult Will is returning to Days’ screens sometime this September. Which begs the question … what kind of crazy storyline will the writers come up with to potentially bring Will back?
