Bobby loved her regardless and finding out Pam is alive, without any further details, we don’t know why she’s away from him. The point being is it doesn’t ruin his character to go after her and give up everything in the process to get to the woman he loves. If it help you I suppose they could have spent some time developing the idea he finds out she’s been kidnapped. I’m just not sure how much lead time the writers had to know that the final episode was the final episode. The idea is to give something to the fans that didn’t feel this was a settled story line. You’ve been clear that you felt it was. I’ll be clear, I felt it was. But obviously it was NOT to many, or at least not settled to their liking. Well obviously you are not a lawyer, neither am I but I’m aware of the basics of such things. And while you might not think it’s right the law dues not work on your individual feelings about right right and wrong. You can put all kinds of stipulations on your estate, depending on how you set it up. A famous example is Doris Duke who tried to disinherit an adopted daughter (adopted late in life) which she felt conned her. Her father’s will did not allow her to do so. Kind of the opposite of my scenario. I have stipulations to my estate I put in place which would not let my children do what ever they want with part of it. This is what I said about Miss Ellie and protecting South Fork land without just giving it to Bobby, who if he does the same eventually the land won’t be protected. You don’t have to agree but this is the reality of estate planning and it is believable that Herbert did such a thing that Rebecca ignored and no one caught her in.
