the 100 most memorable moments in soap history
Marley Love Hudson (Emmy-winner Anne Heche) returned to Bay City in 1987 and began dating Jake McKinnon (Tom Eplin), who later proposed to her. However, Marley found out about Jake's affair with Paulina and dumped the louse. When Jake did not accept Marley's decision, he ended up raping her. Jake was shot, and Marley was arrested. Marley's twin sister, Vicky (also Anne Heche) had once been married to Jake. She knew nothing about Jake's having raped Marley. Vicky planned to help her sister at the attempted murder trial. A stunned Vicky, on the witness stand posing at Marley, learned from Cass Winthrop (who believed he was talking to Marley) that Marley was raped by Jake McKinnon. Anne Heche's portrayal of Vicky and Marley when Vicky broke down in the court bathroom after learning of the rape was utterly phenomenal, and a daytime moment for which Heche will always be remembered.
