Susan Lucky? I never heard of her?
Hilarious! And what a fun video, to see Joan editing her lines.
She did it first (and showed more cleavage!!)
She landed on soft hay. Big deal!
1) Who Shot J.R.?: There were a number of suspects who wanted to see an end, to the Texan Machiavelli. Late at night J.R. answers the phone but there is no one there, then there are footsteps and while in the reception the deed is done - DALLAS.
2) Julia lets off multiple blasts: Julia fires multiple times, after an open confession at the wedding. The camera switches to the exterior of the mansion. At least one person goes to the great vineyard in the sky, as we see a coffin lowering into the grave - FALCON CREST.
3) A massacre in Moldavia: A few years after FC had the wedding shooting it was the turn of the Colorado gang to get the bullet treatment. The lavish wedding of Amanda to Prince Michael ended with a bloodbath or was the whole thing as bad as it seemed? - DYNASTY.
4) Bobby is shot, instead of J.R.: Bobby was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Another late night shooting at Ewing Oil saw Bobby fall out of his brother's chair, after a gun fires from behind him - DALLAS.
5) Angela gets it: In the season of the 13 someone shoots through the window, outside of the study. Angela, Richard and Chao-Li all duck yet Angela manages to get hit - FALCON CREST.
Shortly after moving to Sea View Circle Gary came back briefly to Southfork; to be with the family, when J.R. was hospitalised, from being shot, (a scene from season 3; DVD - 4, 1980 - '81):
Jock greets his prodigal son.
Jock: "I am sorry it took something like this to bring you back. Welcome home boy!"
Gary: "Thanks daddy!"
1. Who Shot JR? - Dallas
Because it became a trivia question. I think it's by far the most famous of the shootings. Even though I was too young to remember any of the frenzy it caused at the time.
2. April is killed in Paris - Dallas
This one really got to me when I first watched it at age 13. It was so sad.
3. Alexis gets shot instead of Blake - Dynasty
Because it was an OMG moment for me. I liked that he owed his life to Alexis.
4. Bobby is shot instead of JR - Dallas
Another OMG moment. I thought the bullet was meant for JR even though Katherine intended it for Bobby all along.
5. Emma shoots her husband Charley - Falcon Crest
This shooting made my diary entry the night I first watched the episode. I was pleased Emma finally saw what an idiot she was together with.
1. JR is shot by Kristin - DALLAS. The daddy of all soap shootings and cliffhangers so has to be my top choice.
2. Julia shoots dead an major character, but who? - FALCON CREST. If who shot JR was the daddy of all cliffhangers then this was the mummy.
3. Jake is shot while he tries to stop Jilly from killing Stephanie - RETURN TO EDEN. Stephanie gets splattered with his blood and she takes the gun from Jilly. Jake falls down the stairs and dies to the horror of the guests at the party downstairs. Stephanie appears at the top of the stairs, gun still in her hand with blood on her white dress and face. Jilly shouts that she saw Stephanie shoot Jake.
4. The Moldovian wedding massacre - DYNASTY. Who will survive? Tune in next season
5. April gets shot dead - DALLAS. Yippee!! The bullets hit her in slow motion but she still wasn't fast enough to dodge them. Romantic music plays in the background to accompany her demise.
1. Return to Eden’s cliffhanger where Jilly shoots Jake and sets up Stephanie. That stuck with me for such a long time. A goose bump moment. Very dramatic. And so sad it ended up being the last episode :-(
2. Moldavia wedding
3. Little Fallon shoots Rodger Grimes. Wow that was unexpected and so well done.
4. Katherine shoots Bobby
5. Kristen shoots JR
Yes, it's time for the big reveal!
