* Although much was made of Charity and Miguel's intense connection and soulmate status, it could be argued that Kay and not Charity was Miguel's designated soulmate. Charity repeatedly experiences prophetic dreams in which Miguel ends up with Kay, and after an entire episode in which nearly the entire cast talks nonstop about an superstition that the person they end up holding at the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve is the person they will spend the rest of their lives with, Kay is in Miguel's arms at midnight. In the series finale, they are married.

* ImperiledInPregnancy: Sheridan is held captive by the crazed Beth, who wants to steal her baby and pass it off as hers. Already uncomfortable to watch, the scenes became even more disturbing with the knowledge that Sheridan's actress had suffered a miscarriage.

'''''Passions''''' (1999-2008) is quite possibly the weirdest Daytime SoapOpera since ''Series/DarkShadows''.

The show follows the lives of several families in the town of Harmony: The rich Crane family, headed by the ''eeeeevil'' Alistair Crane (played by [[DiabolicalMastermind a hand holding a cigar]] in the early episodes; later evolved into Ross Webster from ''Film/SupermanIII''); the Lopez-Fitzgeralds, many of whom fell in love with Crane family members; the Bennetts, who were connected to the Cranes through Alistair's grandson Ethan; the Russells, who have got to be one of the oddest BrotherSisterIncest stories on record; the Winthrops, who get involved in an impressive romantic three-way plot; the Hotchkiss family (involved with the Winthrops); and at least one member of the Standish family (related to the Bennetts).

The show opened as a fairly innocuous daytime soap, albeit with elements of [[LovecraftCountry witchcraft and the paranormal]]. What drove the show completely off the rails wasn't that it was cheesy, but that it became a self-parody almost within a month of its premiere. An episode of ''Passions'' makes the cheapest telanovela look like ''Series/TheWire''. The "villains" belonged in a Silver Age comic book. The town's ruling dynasty was comprised of [[UpperClassTwit inbred idiots]]. A transgender [[TwoFaced Two-Face]] stalked Harmony for victims to rape/blackmail (since he/she couldn't decide on which stock daytime villain to be and decided to try both). Zombies, the Devil, and dwarves ran amok. Characters popped over to [[Film/TheWizardOfOz Magical Land of Oz]] for an afternoon... And, in one memorable arc, a faked death involved [[ComplexityAddiction some serious stealth work]]. The shift in tone can be narrowed down to the witch Tabitha and her ambulatory doll Timmy [[EnsembleDarkhorse stealing the show away]] from the 'main' cast. Not that anyone complained.
