    Almost 27 years have passed since Falcon Crest's last episode was first on our TVs. Who do you think would be running the wine business in the present day?

    More than likely Richard, if you are to consider Angela’s agreement with him and Lance in May 1990 but there as been a lot of water under the bridge since then. I would imagine ownership of the mansion, the guesthouse, the winery and the vineyards as been quite fraught, with Julia and Emma also having a say along the way. If Cole came back from Oz in the intervening years then you could have events like the start of the series in December 1981, all over again.


    Angela is in the sanatorium, after some manoeuvring from Richard to obtain control of Falcon Crest. Lance is with her in the visiting room, (a scene from season 8, 1988 – ’89):

    Angela: “Have you heard from Emma?”

    Lance: “No but I’ve talked to Daniel’s publishers. He is tracking them down.”

    Angela: “What about Julia?”

    Lance: “She is in a convent in Italy, on some retreat.”

    Angela: “Damn!”

    Lance: “Grandmother what is going on?”

    Angela: “Does something always have to be going on. I just want to see my daughters.”

    Lance: “Now you know what I mean. You have Kenneth Loane running all over town for ya. Why?”

    Angela: “He has other clients besides me. Why is it that everyone thinks that I’m always up to something?”

    Lance: “Don’t get all worked up now. Everything is going to be okay.”

    Angela: “Don’t talk to me like I’m the village idiot. I’m not crazy! If I want my daughters with me there is nothing wrong with that.”

    I think that by now Richard has retired and Lance probably sold his share and retired too. I think it's Michael and Kevin running it. My guess is they get along, thick as thieves probably and have another going after Falcon Crest. Jospeh or a Stavos grandchild of Vickie's? Lisa or Angela? Maybe a neice or nephew of Choa-Li's?

    Lance.

    He's more attached to Falcon Crest than he'd like to admit and everyone else is too old.

    I'd nominate Cole if allowed.
    Am I assuming Cole migrated to Australia after leaving Falcon Crest? I only ask because Falcon Crest didn't have the same hold on me as Dallas did. If they were to boot up Falcon Crest I believe this would make for an interesting re-introduction by starting the story here in Oz. We have a huge wine industry as most know. Perhaps a message arrives from Tuscany Valley for Cole's immediate return.

    Rove, Cole emigrated to Australia in the winter of 1986, to become involved in a new wine venture. He briefly reappeared in season 7. Regarding a reboot infact Cole’s return was the premise of a planned sequel a few years back, in which Richard now owned Falcon Crest. The sequel is on hold and will probably never happen.


    Angela and Chao-Li are in the winery, to meet Cole, (a scene from season 5, 1985-‘86):

    Angela: "I don't like to be kept waiting..!!!!!"

    Cole: "I was busy with the shifts...If I'd known you were here you'd still be waiting."

    Yes, after Delta Rho and Melrose Place, why not Falcon Crest?

    Carrington, Eggar and Ross...

    And Little Joseph, now 35 and still cute-as-a-button, wanders into the Falcon Crest study and demands: "Which one of you three Samanthas is my bitch mother?!?"

    It would be so rad.

    I don't remember exactly how Falcon Crest ended. But I think Lance and Pilar and whatever kids they might have would be running FC now.

    YES.

    I'm sorry, but I'm going through my VHS tapes and lets just say "Melrose Place!" - I'm so there.

    Lance I would imagine and then Richard would have a minor interest.

    Well, yes. Lance would be the one who would run Falcon Crest.

    Or how about, no-one?
    What if Falcon Crest had become a desolate, overgrown place?

    Let's say that Lance wasn't capable of running the business and Richard just didn't care anymore so he and what's-her-name moved to the east coast.

    A fresh and optimistic family decides to start a wine business in Tuscany Valley, and they find this place (pretty much like those reality shows about people who start a new life in a foreign country).
    But will they get along with their neighbours, the bossy Joseph Cumson and his nasty, alcoholic wife who live in the Agretti mansion?

    Voila, Falcon Crest - A New Beginning.

    One things for certain, I cannot see Cole or Vickie running the place, I would imagine they would have their own vineyards in Australia and also it would hold some bad memories for them as I would see them blaming Falcon Crest for the demise of their parents.

    This would be an interesting take on it, Angela dies in 2007 and leaves shares for Cole and Vickie only they sell their shares to Lance instead, for reasons stated above, and just when Richard thinks he has the vineyard, Cole and Vickie's shares enable Lance to claim majority share holder of Falcon Crest, therefore setting up a new conflict ;-)
