    Jamie Rose left the series early in season 3 to pursue other projects but had she not got these options what other storyline(s) would you liked Vicki to have been involved in?

    I much preferred Jamie Rose as Vickie than Dana Sparks.

    I would've loved to have seen Vickie and Terry fight over a man, like on Dynasty where Fallon and Amanda never shared a scene together (not counting the messy, haphazard meeting in season 7) these two characters never shared a scene, wasn't Terry meant to be a replacement for Vickie?
    I felt Vickie was ditched too soon and by the time she was brought back, the shows best years were long gone, I could see Vickie falling for and marrying Greg Reardon.

    In my version of Falcon Crest, Vickie would've stayed until the end, being the last Gioberti remaining against the Channings and I think Jamie Rose's Vickie could pull this off, she was written off way too early.

    IMHO Jamie was the better actress. Dana done her best but by this stage Vickie was portrayed as an annoying spoiled slick 80’s chick.


    Chase and his family are trying to locate a hidden door, in their Gioberti castle mansion. This door will prove intriguing, with regard to Chase’s deceased father Jason and the Falcon Crest early years, with you know who, (a scene from season 1, 1981 – ‘82):

    Maggie: “All right, come on guys! Hey, hey…..let’s call it tomorrow!”

    Cole: “But we’re not through yet!”

    Vicki: “Yeah. We’re almost finished.”

    Chase: “We can finish it up tomorrow!!!!!!”

    Vicki: “But I’ve got school tomorrow!”

    Maggie: “Well, that's exactly the point. Out…out…out! Goodbye! See you in the morning. Oh and take those shoes off, so you don't track the floor!!

    Cole and Vicki speak at the same time: “Yes, Mother!”

    Maggie: “Out!”

    Vicki should have opened a dancing school, with Jamie Rose in the part. Jamie was always the more natural actress.

    I agree with you. I often find recasts of major characters quite difficult to accept but I thought Dana Sparks slipped into the role very comfortably. I liked how she didn't try to completely copy Jamie Rose and interpreted the character her own way.

    God I disliked the white slave trade and the relationship with Eric, which Dana had to do when she played Vicki.

    Vickie should have went looking for her sweetheart Mario and returned to the vineyards. He was one of the best workers FC had.
