    So close. A part of me regrets not voting for Abby now as I am sad to see her go.

    Looks like Maggie might be our winner since she has beaten out some stiff competition in Bobby and Alexis...

    The truth is, had I voted earlier, I'd have abstained from voting for M3 and voted Abby for M4. Then I realised I'd enjoyed JR more than Abby. I didn't keep track of the votes the candidates were getting, so didn't realise voting for JR would win the match for him!

    Never fear, Abby will return one day when no one is expecting her.

    So we say a sad farewell to Alexis Carrington and Abby Cunningham who both ran their rivals very close but couldn't quite make it in the end. The players' board has been updated.

    [​IMG]

    The next matches will involve 2 characters from the same soap so we won't be able to vote for both of them, 2 characters who like to drink very different things and an inter-generational battle between 2 major characters. But who will be up against who? Details will be revealed shortly.

    I found O.Adriana's crystal ball and it told me it would be Channing vs Channing (Angela & Richard) & Ewing vs Ewing (Jock & JR).
    I'm not laying bets.

    I think your crystal ball is clouded because Angela and JR are already through to the quarter finals (as are Maggie and Sue Ellen). So it between the remaining characters.

    Not my crystal ball. O.Adriana's. That's why I'm not laying bets.

    Edited to add: I resisted a smiley face after "bets" so I wouldn't come off sounding like a smug arse. :D

    PLEASE NOTE:
    As 2 Falcon Crest characters (Lance Cumson and Richard Channing) have been drawn to play their matches in the same week, the rules of the game do not allow forum members to vote for both of them. You will have to chose to support one of them or neither of them.

    If you don't want to vote against a Falcon Crest character, you can choose to vote in one match only. If you vote for 2 Falcon Crest characters, I will sadly have to treat both your votes as being invalid.

    I was so disappointed when I saw that Lance and Richard were drawn to play their round 2 matches in the same week so I won't be able to vote for both of them. After Angela, they 2 of are my favourite Falcon Crest characters so it's been difficult to decide how to vote. However, overall of the two, I think Richard was the more consistently interesting and entertaining character on Falcon Crest and I can't forgive Lance for inflicting the "Babylonia woman" on us and spending most of that season wearing sunglasses and having his jacket sleeves rolled up to the elbows.

    Match 5
    I really like both characters and if there wasn't another Falcon Crest character involved this week, I would have voted for Lance. However, because I think Jock was also a great character, I'll vote for him rather than abstaining in this match. My winner is Jock Ewing.

    Match 6
    Richard was a far more interesting character than Gary. There was no deja vu with him marrying the same person 3 times and being besotted with 2 different characters with identical faces. Gary leaving Valene after she saved him from drunken oblivion was unforgivable and effectively handing over his inheritance to Abby to manage was just plain daft. Gary's actions also lead to the death of the head of my favourite Knots Landing family, the Fairgates, so that's another minus point against him. By contrast, Richard was a fascinating mix of ruthlessness and a longing to be loved and accepted. Easy choice for me, my winner is Richard Channing.

    Match 5: Lance

    I don't want to vote in Match 6. If I did, since I can't vote for another FC one, it would have been Gary by default, but I feel people have enable him enough on and off the soap. So I'm staying out.

    Great idea. Actually I’m going to do the same

    1. Lance because the sight of him in speedos could make me salivate and Jock just sadly couldn’t ;-)

    2. I can’t vote for Richard due to Lance and I’ve got the pip with Gary for beating Pam so no vote from me for round 2.

    Gary?!
