Got a tissue? ’Cause you’re gonna need one. Maybe more than one, come to think of it.

At least he died a hero. The Bold and the Beautiful let Finn ride to wife Steffy’s rescue in the April 1 episode, saving her from a shot fired by his own mother.

In fact, on many an occasion, it’s reduced us to blubbering messes by making grave matters of plot twists. As coincidence would have it, we’ve included a whole bunch of them in the below photo gallery.
