The 10 Worst Soap Opera Storylines Of 2017
As 2017 winds to an end, one can’t help but reflect. The landscape of daytime drama has seen many ups and downs this year. General Hospital (GH) welcomed back prodigal son Steve Burton, and we now have two Jasons in Port Charles. Over at Days of Our Lives (DOOL), Nicole Walker fought furiously for her baby in an interesting plot twist that saw Chloe Lane as the surprise surrogate. The Young and the Restless (Y&R) was booming with two family feuds that pitted Newman versus Newman and Abbott versus Abbott. These are all great soap storylines that have kept daytime drama fans captivated and tuned into their favorite shows, but what about those not-so-great plots this year? Below is a 10 list of the worst soap opera storylines in 2017.
10. DOOL – Will Never Died
DOOL fans love the fact that Sami is back and the idea of having Will back, but the story around how he was not really dead in the first place is ridiculous. Throw Susan Banks into the mix and this storyline is more laughable than intriguing. Anyone wish that Days‘ producers could just fast forward through all this Memphis junk and get to a WilSon reunion?
9. Y&R – Cane and Lily’s Break Up
The affair Cane had with Juliet was shocking. The sexual harassment case that Juliet launched thanks to the one-night stand was scandalous! But all the aftermath around this storyline has been awful. Cane lied, which was terrible, but the idea that Juliet is pregnant and now falling for Cane is ridiculous. All of Cane’s actions as of late, including getting drunk and screaming outside of his family’s home, are just plain stupid.
