    Ah Emma got heartbroken again in season 6. Poor Dwayne was barely cold in his grave and Vince Karlotti (an opportunist if there ever was one) came along as a spiritualist living in a spooky house, by the way to put Emma in touch with Dwayne. Sure enough she was had yet again when they went to tie the knot. They didn't even get to exchange rings, as Vince's other wives came out of the wood work. I felt sorry for Emma yet again :( :group:Any thoughts?

    The storyline with Vince and Emma wasn't one of my favourites. It was okay, at best. I would have much preferred Daniel Greene's character Dwayne Cooley (a trucker by trade) to have remained after season 5 and Eric Stavros to be killed off, in the earthquake instead. Vince Karlotti's spiritualist goings on were bordering on the slapstick and I was glad he got his comeuppance, in front of all those Tuscany Valley residents, in the chapel.


    Angela, Emma and Lance are at the spiritualist Vince Karlotti's home. Vince is going to try and communicate with Dwayne's spirit (Emma's late husband), (a scene from season 6, 1986 - '87):

    Vince: "Emma and I have been communicating with Dwayne."

    Angela laughs: "Of course! Napoleon Bonaparte floats around the ceiling at Falcon Crest too."

    Vince: "Okay silence everyone. The time as come for us to summon Dwayne."

    Angela: "Well where is he?"

    Dwayne speaks, via Vince: "Hello Emma."

    Emma: "Oh Dwayne!"

    Dwayne speaks again, via Vince: "I only have a minute Emma but I want you to know I miss you!"

    Emma replies in a sad tone: "Oh I wish there was a way to bring you back!"

    In the long line of Emma's men Vince Karlotti wasn't actually the worst. Yes he was irritating though Charley Imbecile St. James gets the gold award for the most repulsive. I have a strong hatred for that Falcon Crest man.

    Vince was an unlikeable character but he served his purpose in reinforcing the view that Emma was a gullible, tragic, naïve victim.

    Charley reached the top place in my recent video for the Supersoap characters who outstayed their welcome!! (You can watch it in another thread here)

    Charley would probably have done harm to Vince, if their paths had crossed in season 9. Oh yeah the nature of the beast that was Mr St. James.....

    PS: Not wanna gossip here, but this guy was accused of trying to murder his wife more recently...
    Also this:"Was fired and rehired twice from the major motion picture, Titanic (1997)." Lol! He had a little Charley inside, that´s for sure!!​

    Of course he helped sink FC too. Our beloved wine show was going to have an open ending and an abrupt cancellation had the show's main anchor Miss Jane Wyman not returned, to provide a dignified send off for the long term fans. Kudos to Jane!
