Vivian Jovanni
"Days of our Lives" viewers were stunned, this week, when Bo (Peter Reckell) and Hope's (Kristian Alfonso) only daughter, Ciara (Vivian Jovanni) was raped at the hands of her step brother Chase (Jonathon McClendon). Sure, the young teen seemed a bit off and moody, but nobody suspected he could ever be capable of such violence, especially against someone he claimed to truly care about like Ciara. 
Kate Mansi
Ever since Kate Mansi (Abigail Deveraux) announced she was leaving "Days of our Lives" when her contract expires, fans have been agonizing over the impending loss. Not only will they be losing the show's most popular 20-something heroine, but also half of the most beloved and charismatic supercouple the soap has developed in years, Chad and Abby. That is, unless "DAYS" recasts Abigail.
Peter Reckell Joseph Mascolo Shawn Christian
It seems like one memorial service after the next, these days on "Days of our Lives." First, Will Horton (Guy Wilson) was murdered. Then, Bo Brady (Peter Reckell) succumbed to a brain tumor. Then, Daniel Jonas (Shawn Christian) was killed in a car crash, followed by Stefano DiMera (Joseph Mascolo) being shot to death by Hope.
Stefano, Joseph Mascolo
He took three bullets square in the chest, collapsed in a chair, and was pronounced dead by Rafe (Galen Gering). The Phoenix, as portrayed by Joseph Mascolo, appears to be done for good, this time around, with no chance of ever rising again. Did "Days of our Lives" make a huge mistake killing off Stefano?
Emme Rylan, Dominic Zamprogna, General Hospital
"General Hospital's" Dante (Dominic Zambrogna) and Lulu (Emme Rylan) have been in a marital mess for months. It all started when Dante wrongly thought Lulu cheated on him with Dillon (Robert Palmer Watkins), so he retaliated by sleeping with Valerie (Brytni Sarpi) Add Lulu's ex, Johnny (Brandon Barash), to the mix and things got even more complicated.
There were a lot of ghosts and ghouls running around last week for Halloween, but they weren’t the only blasts from the pasts as of late. Several classic television shows have been given second lives, including “Veronica Mars,” “Family Guy,” “The Comeback” and "Twin Peaks" (the latter of which you can read more about here), making it all the rage in Hollywood at the moment. But which resurrected shows have proven to be the best back-from-the-dead successes? You can decide!
“It’s impossible to forget Samantha Brady!” declared Caroline (Peggy McCay) on yesterday’s episode of “Days of our Lives,” exactly mirroring the thoughts that many of the sudser’s fans have had on their minds leading up to star Alison Sweeney’s last episode today. Many tears have been shed (both onscreen and off), but was the character’s exit really movie magic? Or would a completely different ending been the way to go?
