I didn’t mind the surrogacy story, even if it did end up the usual T.V. / film way. Getting Cole and Melissa involved in something like this was interesting, as IMHO it gave Mr. Moses and Ms. Alicia perhaps their last meaty goings on before Cole sailed off on the high seas, early in season 6. Although Robin may have wanted Cole all to herself and then ended up doing the expected I thought that Barbara Howard did well, as Melissa’s good looking cousin. Her casting was very appropriate. Robin Agretti meets with Angela, in the Falcon Crest study. They will be discussing her child with Cole. The child Melissa wants as her own, (a scene from season 5, 1985 – ’86): Angela: “I assume you have been causing a great deal of trouble for the Giobertis?” Robin: “I didn’t mean to cause any trouble.” Angela: “Its time we have a little chat. Sit down! This could be a perfect opportunity for both of us.” Robin: “Wait a minute. I just want my baby. What do you mean?” Angela: “Melissa poisons everything she touches, including my grandsons. Now she is not going to raise your baby.” Robin smiles and then Chao-Li enters with tea in the best Falcon Crest china, for the three of them.
