    Match 3) - Angela
    Match 4) - JR


    Angela is concerned about Chao-Li, who is hospitalised with cancer. Lance consoles his grandmother, in the visiting room, (a scene from season 7, 1987 - '88):

    Angela: "You know, Chao-Li has been with me longer than any of my husbands. If he dies, who would I have left?"

    Gosh Blake’s siblings aren’t doing very well at all are they? Oh dear. No wonder they had issues. Thanks again @Angela Channing for all your doing here

    They both had tough draws. Their mum is up this week, I wonder if she will do better.

    So we bid a fond farewell to Steven Carrington and Constance Carlyle but they were both up against tough opposition. This week matches will pit some heavyweights against each other so it should be an interesting vote.

    Please note, the rules of the World Cup of Prime Time Soaps state that you may only vote for one character from a particular soap each week which means you are not permitted to vote for both Laura Avery and Abby Cunningham. You can choose to vote in both matches or just one of them.

    Really difficult choices this week as I think all 4 characters are really strong and contributed so much to the success of their respective show. Laura just edges it for me in match 1 because she was great with both her husbands and her final scenes and video were some of my favourites ever in Knots Landing. I might have voted for Abby as she was such a great character but the new rule makes it easier for me so I'll be supporting Ellie rather than not voting in the second match.

    Match 5 - Laura Avery
    Match 6 - Ellie Ewing

    Easy

    1. Alexis
    2. Miss Ellie

    I suspect Alexis might fare better than her children did ;-)

    Imagine Miss Ellie and Alexis in a round against each other

    You couldn’t get more different characters! :)

    1: Alexis - I love love love Laura but Alexis is iconic. Laura was better written and had more depth but Alexis was the outrageous dynamo that drove her show. Plus on a more superficial level, Alexis' outfits are sublime.

    2: Abby - a tough one again and as much as I love Miss Ellie, I'm a sucker for a villain in shoulder pads.

    1. Laura Avery, as if there was any doubt....

    2. Miss Ellie, because she really is a sweet lady...and because Laura would want me to vote against "that blonde...Annie?"
