Yes, I know she was killed by Danny but why was the character reduced to being almost insignificant. When Pat Williams first arrived in Knot Landing in season 10, she had a strong storyline. She and her family arrived mysteriously, she was living under an assumed identity, she was stabbed while giving evidence in court and she had the hots for Gary, so there was a lot going on for her. However, by season 11 she had almost no screen time and the most interesting dialogue she was given was stuff like "of course Karen, I'd love to babysit Meg". What happened? Why did she go from hero to zero? I thought they might have made something of her being attracted to Gary which could have been an interesting storyline. Instead Pat made pancakes and we got weeks of Gary's boring regular phone conversations with "Sally's friend". They should have done so much more with her character so when she was killed it would have had an bigger impact.
