In the sentence; J'avais oublié de finir mes devoirs; why the de?
The verb format is "oublier de faire (qch)" --> to forget to do something
So in "J'avais oublié de finir ...." you will see that the format above is being followed and the "de" is part of the verb format in this case. "I had forgotten to finish my homework"
Hope this helps.
