Viewers first saw 'nuAmanda' in the Season 6 finale recap. It kicked off the Season 7 premiere September 24, 1986. Karen Cellini assumed the role. Producers reshot the beats just before Amanda & Sammy Jo enter the pool. Press accounts said Cellini was chosen specifically for her likeness to Oxenberg. I never saw it until the actress' final scene (Season 7 Episode 13 'The Rig'). NuAmanda was never seen onscreen again after arguing with Michael Culhane on a Colorado lakeshore.
