25 Totally Innocent-Yet-Oddly-Inappropriate Soap Scenes



While the old adage tells us "a picture is worth a thousand words", sometimes context is equally important. Soap operas crank out episodes 52 weeks a year, so it's no surprise sometimes even the most innocent scenes can end up seeming oddly inappropriate.

For example, if you never watched One Life to Live you might raise an eyebrow wondering what exactly Tea (Florencia Lozano) and Victor (Trevor St. John) were up to in the scene above.

Here are 25 Totally Innocent-Yet-Oddly-Inappropriate Soap Opera Scenes we found in the Daytime Confidential archives.


DC #730: Dreaded Newbies


On today’s Daytime Confidential podcast Luke Kerr, Jamey Giddens and Jillian Bowe debate the latest All My Children, The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of Our Lives, General Hospital, One Life to Live and The Young and the Restless headlines and storylines, including:

Eileen Davidson has decided to leave Days of Our Lives to spend time with her family. Should Davidson return to The Young and the Restless as Ashley Abbott ,or should she wait until it’s in better shape? If Davidson does return to Y&R,should she demand to see a full-fledged storyline projection first, so she doesn’t end up like Melody Thomas Scott and Eric Braeden?

Who will fill Kristen’s bad girl stilettos when Davidson splits Salem? Teresa continues to drive Jennifer crazy on Days of Our Lives.

Luke wouldn’t mind having a Time Warner Cable blackout, if it means not having to watch last week’s painful The Young and the Restless.  Adam was accused of rape by Lucky Charms. Does anyone care about Neil’s mystery? Chelsea gives birth.  Why is Abby in such lame corporate storylines? No one wants to see the character of Carmine destroyed. Sharon has her eye on ex-hubby Nick.

William deVry is Julian Jerome on General Hospital. Is deVry age-appropriate for the role?  Julian has connections all over the canvas, from Sam to the much missed Lucas. Is Ava a mob assassin? Holly and Luke hold up a bank.

What Does Victor’s Mysterious Tattoo Mean on One Life to Live?


Dorian (Robin Strasser) and Jack (Andrew Trischitta) spent some time together in Llanview, during which she was confronted by her former constituents. One of them was proud of Dorian, while the other thought Dorian sitting on the intelligence report was a disgrace. Todd (Roger Howarth) ran into them and offered to help Jack buy the computer/console he wanted. Jack wasn’t interested in Todd’s help.

Tea (Florencia Lozano) wasn't happy to learn Dani (Kelley Missal) was moving into apartment with two guys. At said apartment, Matthew (Robert Gorrie) and Jeffrey (Corbin Bleu) prepared for Hurricane Dani’s arrival.


Victor Warns Todd to Never Go Near “His” Family Again on One Life to Live!


Viki (Erika Slezak) woke Todd (Roger Howarth) up in the hospital waiting room to let her brother know Dani (Kelley Missal) had come to. She insisted Todd be prepared to tread softly with Dani. Todd tried to change the topic, by congratulating her on sticking it to Dorian (Robin Strasser).

Viki attempted to stop Todd from bursting in on Victor and Dani’s reunion. She told him to think of someone beside himself.  It didn’t work. Todd stormed in demanding to see his daughter.

After Tea (Florencia Lozano) and Victor (Trevor St. John) left, Todd asked Dani why she was taking drugs. Dani promptly blamed Todd for everything. She threw what he did to Tea in Port Charles back in his face, along with a slew of other things.

Victor and Tea Still Have Explosive Chemistry on One Life to Live


Episode 2 of TOLN's One Life to Live picked right up with all the juicy drama from the previous day.  Dani’s (Kelley Missal) family and friends rushed to the hospital to check on her status. While they were out in the hall, Victor (Trevor St. John) snuck into her room to be by his "daughters" bedside.

Tea (Florencia Lozano) was shocked to find out from Matthew (Robert Gorrie) that Dani had been doing drugs. Todd (Roger Howarth) lashed out at Tea for her parenting skills. As Todd continued to rip into Tea, Victor burst into the room and threw his brother against the wall. 

Victor and Tea’s reunion was incredible. They haven't lost an ounce of their TV magic. However, the rest of the Manning-Lords barely reacted to Victor coming back from the dead. You'd think Viki (Erika Slezak) would have been more concerned with figuring out how her baby brother survived, than having an impromptu editorial meeting with Jeffrey King (Corbin Bleu)!
