    Someone on Instagram is documenting every freeze frame from just before the credits rolled. I thought it'd be interesting to have a look at them and see how the styles changed over the course of the show and who got the most face time as characters grew in popularity as the show progressed.

    Season 1's closing scenes were mostly dark and shadowy. There was a lot of nighttime action going on there. Season 2 is a bit brighter but the style is still quite 70's miniseries and the fashions haven't descended into OTT Nolan Miller madness just yet.

    Below is the tally of what they've posted so far and who has gotten the most freeze frame action.

    SEASON ONE
    1 - Krystle
    2 - Fallon
    3 - Krystle
    4 - Fallon
    5 - Claudia and Steven
    6 - Matthew
    7 - Blake and Krystle
    8 - Steven
    9 - Matthew
    10 - Krystle
    11 - Blake
    12 - Steven
    13 - Blake

    Krystle - 3.5
    Steven - 2.5
    Blake - 2.5
    Matthew - 2
    Fallon - 2
    Claudia - 0.5

    SEASON TWO
    1 - Krystle
    2 - Alexis
    3 - Nick
    4 - Krystle
    5 - Alexis
    6 - Krystle and Blake
    7 - Fallon
    8 - Fallon
    9 - Krystle and Nick
    10 - Krystle
    11 - Blake
    12 - Alexis
    13 - Blake
    14 - Nick
    15 - Fallon
    16 - Alexis
    17 - Claudia
    18 - Nick
    19 - Krystle
    20 - Alexis
    21 - Claudia
    22 - Blake

    Krystle - 5
    Alexis - 5
    Nick - 3.5
    Blake - 3.5
    Fallon - 3
    Claudia - 2

    It's interesting to see that it is the leading ladies rather than Blake who are getting the most closing shot action so far. I remember an interview where someone (probably Joan) said that John Forsythe insisted that he be in every opening scene and closing scene of the show. The tally above doesn't suggest this but maybe it's something that came into play in later years. Also, interesting to see that two years into the show and poor old Jeff still hasn't had a look in yet when it came to the dramatic closers.

    2017 I think (unless it is 2016)
    Actually it was Esther Shapiro. She said that he came to her and said he wanted to be discussing the script with her, and she was hesitant about the kind of suggestions he would have, but all he cared about was that he be the character in the opening and last scene. I think even if the freeze frame ends with some other character it doesn't preclude him being in that scene.

    Interesting tally, and it makes sense that the two most sympathetic characters Krystle and Steven should have more freeze frames in the first season for audience empathy to carry onto the next episode.

    James Farentino had so much screen time in Season 2, he has the 'And Starring' spot at the end of the credits and more freeze frames - even more than the 2 Carrington children. Unfortunately Steven's character decline leaves him with none.

    I always thought that Alexis had too many freeze frames as the seasons wore on, so it will be interesting to see how the tally progresses.

    I wonder if the 2 seasons of The Colbys will be included. They had many very nice freezers as well. :D
