    1. SO3E03 - The Wedding

    19.JPG 20.JPG

    Cecil's death ushers in a new era and makes Alexis a force to be reckoned with in her war against Blake.


    2. S03E04 – The Will

    1.JPG 2.JPG

    Alexis is left dumbfounded when she comes face to face with her first born son who went missing all those years ago.


    3. S01E13 – The Separation

    33.jpg 34.jpg

    Ted's death at the hands of Blake paves the way for Alexis' arrival and means everything is about to change forever.


    4. S03E14 – Madness

    7.JPG 8.JPG

    The posion apple doesn't fall too far from the tree and Alexis is in for a nasty shock when she finds out Adam has been poisoning Jeff, and that he's gonna blame her if she doesn't cooperate.


    5. S02E09 – The Psychiatrist

    5.JPG 4.JPG

    Blake and Alexis kiss in Rome and Krystle and Nick kiss back in Denver. Could this be the end of the line for the golden couple? Could the forces of evil be about to triumph? Sadly no, but it was fun to think they might.

    6. S07E13 – The Rig

    9.JPG 10.JPG

    Kind of like Cane and Abel fight during a Bond movie climax. Will Ben leave Blake to die as the oil rig explodes?


    7. S02E02 – The Verdict

    21.JPG 22.JPG

    Trouble is here to stay.


    8. S01E05 - The Dinner Party

    15.JPG 14.JPG

    Krystle gives Fallon a telling off but is not prepared for her response. Fallon repeats word for word the conversation she heard between her and Matthew. Could Blake and Krystle's marriage be finished already?


    9. S02E05 - Reconciliation

    11.JPG 13.JPG

    "The subject's name is Mrs. Blake Carrington, formerly known as Krystle Grant. I want to know everything about her, everything".


    10. S02E20 – The Shakedown

    16.JPG 17.JPG

    Alexis is not going to take being rejected lying down, oh no, oh NO.

    1. Sorry not sure of episode title. From 88-89 season, where fallon realised that she shot rodger grimes. I thought that was an amazing scene, quiet moving and original. Really well done. I so enjoyed that storyline.

    2. Alexis and Blake in Singapore almost reuniting 86-87 season

    3. Season 2 - the phychiatrist. Blake was so much more interesting with Alexis than Krystle

    4. Krystle and Alexis last scene together

    5. Alexis married Cecil and he has a heart attack

    I think it's episode 21 (Blasts From The Past), the one before the last episode.

    I'm not sure if it's a favourite cliffhanger. But the image of Maggie stuck in that swimming pool with her wedding ring immediately comes to mind.

    Also Melissa setting Falcon Crest on fire. So I guess those two are the most memorable ones for me.

    I'm going to opt for five.

    1) 'The Avenger' - season 3: An emotional reconciliation between Julia and Angela concludes with the springhouse in flames, with Julia presumably still inside.
    2) 'Troubled Waters' - season 2: Carlo Agretti gets hit over the head. Cole finds his dead body.
    3) 'The Price of Freedom' - season 9: Maggie drowns, in Richard's swimming pool. Richard collapses in grief.
    4) 'Retribution' - season 4: The curtain comes down on the cartel. Gustav and Renee are both buried along with the jewels / artefacts, when the tunnel caves in.
    5) 'Dead End' - season 7: The Gioberti castle is blown up. Three important characters happen to be in the property; Angela, Maggie and Richard.


    Maggie's wake is taking place, at the Falcon Crest mansion. Angela is standing with Chao-Li in the foyer, (a scene from season 9, 1989 - '90):

    Angela: "Richard wait! It is amazing how death can shake even the firmest resolve. Richard come here."

    Mother and son embrace.

    Richard: "What am I going to do?"

    Angela: "You're gonna survive!"

    1. The Avenger (S03E27) - Julia dies in the spring house fire while the Channings and Giobertis watch helplessly. Probably the saddest scene in all the prime time soaps.
    [​IMG]

    2. The Good, The Bad and The Profane (S01E16) - Melissa tells Lance after they marry that she is pregnant with someone else's child and stuffs some wedding cake in his mouth so he can't respond.
    [​IMG]

    3. The Price of Freedom - (S09E01) - Maggie drowns in the swimming pool and Richard is told the news.
    [​IMG]

    4. United We Stand (S02E11) - Jacqueline gives Richard his birth certificate and reveals to him and Chase that she is his mother.
    [​IMG]

    5. Shadows - (S04E04) - Julia, who at this point is thought to be dead, appears to Emma in the Falcon Crest vineyard at night.
    [​IMG]

    6. The Return - (S09E20) - Angela returns after being away for almost all the entire final season and immediately starts conspiring with Michael Sharpe from their parked cars to stop Richard's wedding. It was so good to see her back on the show.
    [​IMG]

    7. Conspiracy - (S03E03) - Dr Lantry hints that he is going to kill Chase and will implicate Angela.
    [​IMG]

    8. The Arrival - (S02E02) - Richard's first meeting with Angela and his new family doesn't go well and he vows to get them all back (stabbing a knife in a chair for good measure).
    [​IMG]

    9. The Intruder - (S04E07) - A unknown Italian woman appears at Falcon Crest saying she is Francesca Gioberti and she hugs as shocked Angela.
    [​IMG]

    10. The Naked Truth - (S05E09) - At a party to welcome Peter to Falcon Crest, Angela tells the assembled guests that Cole is the father of Robin's baby.

    1. S03 E25 - Win, Place And Show
    upload_2018-9-27_23-20-0.png
    "I have to bury my mother".
    Tension grows as Julia approaches Tuscany Valley - and her target.

    2. S06 E01 - Aftershocks
    upload_2018-9-27_23-23-12.png
    "This is Skylar Kimball…"
    It seems strange to list this as #2 because in this scene we hardly know Skylar or Kit Marlowe.
    But it's the prospect of an impostor story that excites me no end.

    3. S02 E19 - The Odyssey
    upload_2018-9-27_23-29-34.png
    Not only does Angela discover Henri Denault's connection with the Third Reich, it also plants a deliciously misleading clue regarding the murder of Carlo Agretti.
    How thrilling!

    4. S03 E10 - Double Dealing
    upload_2018-9-27_23-39-49.png
    Richard Channing gets a warning from The Cartel, and it's not a horse head.

    5. S06 E22 - Nowhere To Run
    upload_2018-9-27_23-47-31.png
    We discover that crazy Melissa has Chase and Maggie's baby. OMG.

    6. S02 E11 - United We Stand
    upload_2018-9-27_23-51-35.png
    "Here, your birth certificate"
    Not a big surprise to the viewer - who else could have been Richard's mother? - but the big question is: how are Chase and Richard going to handle this?

    7. S03 E19 - The Aftermath
    upload_2018-9-27_23-57-49.png
    A classic soap staple, but I was seriously worried what would happen to Maggie, and what it was that caused her to fall down the stairs.

    8. S04 E27 - ...And The Fall
    upload_2018-9-28_0-1-32.png
    (image taken from @Ome's wonderful and sometimes hilarious review of Finding Falcon Crest)
    Lorraine Prescott also takes a nasty tumble, and this looks pretty serious (and it was).

    9. S05 E04- Echoes
    upload_2018-9-28_0-10-9.png
    "Sweet dreams, Angela" hahahahahaaa
    To be honest, I was more concerned about the beautiful mansion.

    10. S03 E18 - Changing Times
    upload_2018-9-28_0-12-7.png
    Crash! Soap divas screaming. Shamelessly copied from DYNASTY, but Melissa actually lost her baby.

    This nearly made it onto my list. It's actually hilarious, and the kind of black humour that FC does really well. She has such a big smile on her face as she says it.

    Right. Plus the fact that it's Kim Novak who is the imposter. Oh, it's all so Hitchcockian!

    I'm pretty sure it's 'Echoes"

    I feel I need to explain to the Falcon Crest fans why THE AVENGER is not on my list.
    It is one of my favourite episodes, and it also shows the endless possibilities of the soap genre. Who would have thought that such an outrageous storyline would end in such a genuinely dramatic way?
    The sky is the limit, except if there's a UFO in it.
    But since there's a sense of conclusion it doesn't feel like a set up for a new twist. As it turned out, it was - first the plane crash and then Julia's return.

    It's for this very reason that I didn't vote for DYNASTY's baby on the rooftop, since we already found out in the same episode that the baby was just a doll.

    But I know you are going to forgive me:pals:
