Last 'Classic' Soap Moments

Recommended Posts

  • Members

Every soap in television history has tons of classic moments over the years but since soaps are now a dying breed those moments are almost non-existent.


What current moments on your soaps (current as in the last 15-20 years) do you feel qualify as true classic soap moments?

It's sad if you said 1996 and earlier, I would have at least 5 per show.  But right now, this is what I can think of from the last 15 to 20 years.


GH- Liz finding Carly in the panic room. I'm not even a big fan of the characters, but I remember it vividly, and it was a true cliffhanger.

Y&R- Jill and Katherine fighting in the attic.

GH- Luke finds Laura on the dock and tells her Lucky died in the fire.

AMC- Jesse and Angie reunite at the train station.

DAYS- Will has his first kiss with another man.

B&B - Morgan kidnapping Steffy, Massimo revealed as Ridge's father, and Taylor's 2002 'death' were the last times I can ever recall being enthralled by B&B.


Home and Away - Sally Fletcher stabbed and left for dead at the end of the 2006 cliffhanger.


Y&R - Cassie's death, Tom and Sheila's reign of terror, and John's death are really the end of classic Y&R for me. Part of me wants to mention Dru, but that send-off was...awful.
