    1981 was the end of the season which opened with 'Who Shot JR?", a global event.

    1982 was the end of the second season of DYNASTY which would be its defining year.

    So it kind of makes some sense.

    Indeed. Ironically, the 80-81 series of Dallas was largely a borefest.

    Actually, the second season cliffhanger of Dynasty was BORING!

    2017 I think (unless it is 2016)
    If you count Blake and Krystle as the cliffhanger (which I don't) it was. But how can you say that about Alexis slapping Cecil to kingdom come in the middle of sex and screaming like a Maenad, "don't you dare die on me?"

    To me, only the Blake & Krystle resolution was boring.

    To me, the most interesting part of the cliffhanger was actually creepy Claudia and what she might have done with the baby. LOVED Bellwoods' performance in this episode!

    In fact season 3 premiere of dynasty was an amazing episode and would have been an even better cliffhanger to season 2. Season 3 premiere of dynasty one of few shows ever to begin with an episode more suited to be season finale episode.

    It brought huge excitement because of Adam, and the past of Alexis and Blake brought back to the forefront, so I enjoyed the episode very much, but I think cliffhangers have to bring to a climax developments that are already underway, not suddenly take new directions--which Adam was. In that sense, much as I have serious issues with Marchetta and her Diana turn of DYNASTY, Moldavia could be said to be the perfect cliffhanger: it was a series of dominoes falling one after the other at least as far back as Amanda and Prince Michael met in Acapulco.

    We often associate Best Cliffhangers with death and violence, but really the only question after that is: dead or alive? You already know that that is the question that needs to be answered.
    These scenes are very thrilling, of course, but my favourite cliffhangers are the ones that make me think: OMG, what does this mean? What's going to happen next?
    And that's why the courtroom drama from season 1 is my all-time favourite cliffhanger.
    Apparently, something very important and unpleasant is going to happen, but we don't know how.

    Very true. Most times finales are culmination of events or bring back old characters to shake things up! I remember when the Chinese villains of season 4 of 24 appear at the end of season 5! Another strategy can be the game of thrones norm of having penultimate episodes be finale like and last episodes be fallout

    That's actually what I had in mind for all the cliffhangers for how I'd do a new "Peyton Place" (yes, I'm still on that idea; whenever I like something, my brain tends to latch on and obsess over it).
