You spend more time even with the minor characters the apparent villains grow less a apparently villainous. Soap opera storylines run concurrently, intersect and lead into further developments An individual episode of a soap opera will generally switch between several different concurrent “.arrative threads that may at times interconnect and affect one another or may run entirely independent of each other.
