You'd think someone like General Hospital's Sonny Corinthos would know better. He's been around the block a few times. He's seen how the mistakes of the past get made again and again. So what could he possibly be thinking rigging a bomb to kill Johnny when that exact same thing is what killed his pregnant bride Lily all those years ago.
But Sonny's not the only one. Soap characters are repeating history all the time, from children traveling down the same paths as their parents to grown adults (who should know better) making the same mistakes they used to. We collected some of the more prominent examples of history repeating itself and put them in a gallery for you.
