the 100 most memorable moments in soap history
It's as if you're watching a scene from a horror film. The 1988 rape of Eden Capwell-Castillo (Marcy Walker) on SB redefined intense. Alone in the house, Eden tries to remain calm, rationalizing an explanation for the power going out, as the rapist climbs up to the window. Eden flees to the door, but it's too late. Played for intense realism, the rape of Eden is generally considered the most brutal and graphic rape in daytime history. The storyline was widely acclaimed, and Marcy Walker won an Emmy for her emotional performance. Eden's husband Cruz (A Martinez) was Emmy-nominated for his work as he struggled to forgive himself for not protecting his beloved wife. Powerful performances in a brutally realistic daytime moment.
