Top 8 Senseless and Horrible Moments From Soap Operas

Join us as we look into the wild and wacky storylines that have left viewers scratching their heads and laughing out loud. Brace yourself for a rollercoaster ride through the soap opera Hall of Fame! Have a look.

Occasionally, soap operas try to boost their viewership by inviting well-known celebrities as special guests.

In order to outperform their rivals and “Gin and Juice” in terms of viewership, “One Life To Live” planned to invite Snoop Dogg as a guest in 2008.

To get the crowd excited, the rapper uploaded a behind-the-scenes video of his performance on YouTube. Snoop wasn’t the only one who seemed to enjoy himself on the show, either.

Holding the camera with excitement was Robert S. Woods, the actor known for playing “OLTL” stalwart Bo Buchanan.

Stated differently, Snoop’s cameo on the soap opera gave us the iconic, uncomfortable scene of Bo and Nora (Hillary B. Smith) getting wasted.

Murder by Bear in The Bold and the Beautiful

You wouldn’t be far wrong if you thought that the plot of this soap opera, which centers on the Forrester family and their fashion company, Forrester Creations, shouldn’t have room for a killer bear scenario.

This episode finds Pamela on the verge of shooting Donna, her competitor.

A knock at the door interrupts Pam’s plan, so she knocks Donna unconscious instead, ties her to a chair, and lathers her in honey, hoping to lure a bear nearby to devour her alive.

Though it seems like something from a horror film, the clever and gory trick at least made for some entertaining viewing.

The music video for All My Children by Zoe has good intentions

Even though soap operas are occasionally seen as a throwback to earlier television, they should be commended for having some of the most inventive plots.

One of the earliest transgender characters on Daytime appeared in “All My Children” in the 2000s.

Jeffrey Carlson’s character Zoe was a rock band member before the show began, but upon her return, she helped viewers understand her gender transition.

All is fine and good, and the play is to be commended for demonstrating to its audience that transgender people are real people.

Still, Zoe recorded a song of her own, “The Me Inside,” and the accompanying music video is uncomfortable in its sincerity. Zoe sang, “Now the world belongs to me / Life begins with a capital Z,” with lyrics that verged on absurdity.

With dramatic views of Zoe strolling the streets and characters like Susan Lucci’s Erica Kane staring on, it also just looks incredibly antiquated.

Time Traveling to 1888 in One Life to Live

There will inevitably be ridiculous plots in a program that has been running nonstop for nearly 45 years, like the one in which a number of people end up in the futuristic city of Eterna, but the time travel of the 19th century was the most imaginative.

The Lord family’s lives were highlighted in this soap opera, but after Clint was shot in the head, the typical plot was dropped and the character was thrust back into the Old West in 1888.

As if that weren’t enough, Viki went back in time to save him, guaranteeing the ludicrous and terrible reputation of the program.

A chipmunk from The Young and the Restless broke into banks

A chipmunk from The Young and the Restless broke into banks

In more than 1,500 episodes of “The Young and the Restless,” actor Greg Rikaart, who also starred in “Days of Our Lives,” portrayed Kevin Fisher.

Kevin was compelled to rob banks in one of those hard storylines. Doesn’t that seem like typical soap opera fare?

Kevin was forced to rob banks while wearing a huge chipmunk head, and thoughts of the chipmunk tormented him for a long time, which is what made this plot so grotesque.

It even spoke to him when he was at his lowest. It appears that Rikaart is fully aware of how bizarre the plot is. He said that at first, he believed the show’s writers were upset with him for providing him with such absurd material.

Fans of “The Young and the Restless” still talk about The Chipmunk Bandit as if he were legendary.

The Reva Clone in Guiding Light

Despite being the longest-running television drama in history, the stories on this program aren’t particularly noteworthy.

According to this plot, Reva’s husband has her cloned because he thinks she perished in an aircraft disaster.

As if that weren’t awful enough, her wicked clone also tries to kill the real Reva and take over her life when she returns to Springfield.

The plot seems like it would make a good science fiction film, but it is comically out of place in a soap opera about a little Midwestern town.

Marlena got possessed by the devil on Days Of Our Lives, again

Marlena got possessed by the devil on Days Of Our Lives, again

In what became one of the most famous soap opera plots ever, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) was taken over by the devil on “Days of Our Lives” back in the nineties.

She even levitated, startling onlookers worldwide. Hall declared in 2020 that her legacy would be the possession narrative. “Days” declared the next year that they would be taking a second look at Satan’s conflict with Salem.

Once more, Marlena fell under the devil’s sway, and this time, Doug Williams (Bill Hayes) and other beloved characters were also taken over.

Several deceased individuals even made a comeback, terrorizing Salem as zombies on Halloween night.

Although Marlena’s first possession was unexpected, there was much less fanfare around the show’s attempt to recreate the magic. Nevertheless, Hall was equally proud of her second dance with Satan.

On the other hand, “Days” returning to possession well did not sit well with the fans.

General Hospital Goes James Bond in General Hospital

Over the years, “GH” has included a number of ridiculous plots, such as vampire doppelgängers and an alien taking on human form, but this Bond-like tale eclipses them all.

In order to give the public a sneak peek into his grander scheme to bring about another ice age on Earth, a guy by the name of Mikkos fabricates a snowstorm in Port Charles because he needs a unique diamond for his weather machine.

It would be right at home in a corny James Bond movie, but not in a drama about small-town America.
