The season 6 cliffhanger of Falcon Crest, although not as strong as the one for season 2, it's still is one of my favourites of all the prime time soaps. It wasn't just one cliffhanger but 4: Will Emma jump off the roof and will she survive? Will Chao-Li survive after having an apparent heart attack and falling down the stairs? Richard Channing is revealed to be Angela's son. Will Dan, Chase and Richard come out of the San Francisco Bay alive? Of the 4 cliffhangers, I've always thought the most surprising and impactful was Peter's letter to Angela telling her that Richard was the baby she thought had died shortly after birth and I feel the episode would have been better ending on that bombshell rather than the drama of the car going into the bay. Peter's letter was arguably the biggest twist ever in Falcon Crest which would have massive consequences for the characters in subsequent years so why didn't it end on this scene rather than the subsequent one which always seemed lower key in comparison?
