Sometimes it feels like secrets are kept on soaps just to increase drama when it isn’t even necessary. You scream at the TV for your fave to “just tell the truth already!” Should they, though?
After all, secrets kept are soaps’ bread and butter. It would be boring if Abby (Marci Miller) just came out and told Chad (Billy Flynn) that she was pregnant and didn’t know who her baby’s father is on Days of Our Lives (DOOL).
If Michael (Chad Duell) told Nelle (Chloe Lanier) he thought she was a stinking liar, well then his undercover mission on General Hospital (GH) would be blown.
It’s not like Sharon (Sharon Case) could just blurt out to Nick (Joshua Morrow) that they killed J.T. (Thad Luckinbill) on The Young and the Restless (YR).
No, some secrets need to stay that way, or so it would seem, but are you growing tired of all of that? Soap Hub posed just that question and you made your feelings on the subject crystal clear.
After over 6,500 votes were tallied, a definitive 70% think enough is enough and your faves should just tell their loved ones the truth. You know it will end up biting them in the end if they don’t.
Just look at what happened to Bill (Don Diamont) and Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) on The Bold and The Beautiful (BB) when she learned about all the dirty dealings he kept secret from her! It pushed her right into Ridge’s (Thorsten Kaye) waiting arms.
Keep It To Yourself
For 28%, you love it when there are secrets between your favorite couple because it keeps things interesting. You know that happiness is a death knell for any soap couple and a secret keeps things spicy! And that’s just the way you like it.
Another 2% of you simply put “other,” which probably means you can’t decide what you want from your favorites, but you do know that you want them to stay together.
