Same here.


- Greg-in-a-box on AMC

- Josh as Erica's unaborted fetus

- Tad as murderer

- AMC and OLTL both being canceled and canceled on the same day

- Prospect Park actually bringing both shows back (even if it turns out to be just for one short season, they still did it)

- David being stupid enough to fall for Griffin, Ryan and Zach's entrapment plot in 2011.

-Deidre Hall, Drake Hogestyn, Brandon Beemer and Martha Madison being fired

-Martha Byrne quitting

-Natasha Wylde killing her husband Mark

-Niall revealing he also kidnapped John Paul for his revenge against Myra

-The murder of Lynsey Nolan and undercover cop Walker letting it happen

-Rishi lying to Charity and protecting his son by saying he was the father of Rachel's baby and not her husband, Jai

-Will being revealed as Texas' murderer only two days after he threw her out the church window on their wedding day

-Vanessa falling in love with her best friend Rhona and not becoming a psycho

-The firing of Tom Lister who is everything one could want in a leading man. However, the Cameron story has easily been the best of 2013!

-The firing of Deena Payne and the completely shoddy and disrespectful exit they gave her

-The thankful firing of Cheryl Fergison as Heather who I never thought I'd get the pleasure of seeing being killed. Thanks Ben! It's just too bad they feel the need to hang onto the horrible Shirley.

-Josh Gallagher slowly morphing into a thrill seeking junkie who now has sweet and lovable Bella Cooper wrapped around his manipulative little finger

-Nicole Barber-Lane and Julie Hesmondhalgh quitting their respective soaps of their own accord

In the past ten years?

--The whole Melaswen debacle on Days that it even occurred.

--Cassie's death on Y&R and the downfall of Y&R afterward.

--The firing of Hogestyn and Hall and that Days greatly improved 2009-2010 and wasn't cancelled.

--Y&R in the year 2009 it was shocking how bad the show became.

--Martha Bryne leaving ATWT.

--GL having a successful finale.

--Eric Braden, Melody Thomas-Scott, Eileen Davidson, and Jess Walton all at one time or another were discarded by Y&R.

--The returns of Carly and Vivian to Days, only for it to fall apart.

--The return of John Dixon for ATWT's finale.

Alll of the above +

Bianca's rape in 2003 was, perhaps the most disgusting moment I can think of in soap lore. The fact that the writers did this to a lesbian character (one, who was beloved), but used it as a ploy to give her a child caused me to tune out for the remainder of its ABC run.

I think MB leaving ATWT was actually the straw - that seemed like the end to me. NB did an excellent job, but that just did it for me.

The Fetus in the fireplace and Adam/Rafe was truly a low.

I never thought I'd tune into DAYS again after Malsswen, but ED return brought me back, only for her to leave again!

AMC being cancelled was a shock to me. I really thought the brand name of AMC was synonymous with ABC Daytime. I figured OLTL would go first.

AMC/OLTL being revived and the ratings of the 4 remaining soaps trending upwards during the past two years.
