    1) Loopy sister in law Katherine mows Bobby down, outside Pam's mansion: After some emotional scenes between Pam and Bobby; him staying over and baby Christopher very happy, events soon culminate with a tragedy. Complete with a blonde wig Katherine Wentworth mows Bobby down, with her car. The loopy woman meant to hit Pam but Bobby was soon on the ground badly injured, after he pushed Pam out of the way. Get the tissues ready - DALLAS.

    2) A fourth son: Ray Krebbs was the down to earth ranch foreman and all round civil guy. Something happened in season 3 (DVD-4) which would catapult him into a higher echelon. The man he admired so much John Ross Ewing I (Jock) announced he had a fourth son. Jock gave Ray a pat on the back and said "Welcome to the family boy!" - DALLAS.

    3) "He didn't die!": America's most powerful wine matriarch (Mrs. Angela Channing) had thought her first born had died; shortly after birth, in 1942. In fact he had been roaming about Europe. The boy was adopted, after being snatched by the Perrault woman and Doug Channing. How could Angela keep a lid on the startling development that her foe Richard was the child she thought had sadly deceased - FALCON CREST.

    4) "You're going to a convent!": After escaping from jail for killing Carlo and Jacqueline the oldest Channing daughter went on the run and one of her disguises was a nun. The would be nun had a gun. In the middle of the show's duration, after a Bobby Ewing like resurrection (not a dream though) Julia became a fully fledged sister of the cloth. This twist manoeuvred by Angela's dearest friend Father Bob Curtis was the beginning of the end for Julia - FALCON CREST.

    5) Who is Dominique?: An African American glamourous lady who could belt out a few tunes showed up in the Carrington world. Tom had a love child with Laura Cox, unbeknown to Blake and Ben they had a sister Dominique. Oil was soon mixed with the music and the hospitality sector - DYNASTY.

    It is slightly better than the Australian soap opera Paradise Beach.

    Memorable Moments of the 90s Soaps might be a good idea since there were so many short-lived ones. Like Flops Landing.

    Also, International soap special is required to go with it. It could lead to an exciting summer!

    Justin Bieber as Hamlet is slightly better than Paradise Beach. You'll have to be more specific.

    1. Mark returns from the dead in a dream. Had no idea this was going to happen. He loved her and this was so romantic. He was never going to be Bobby to her but he was kind and supportive and he was in love with her. She loved Mark but was in love with Bobby. With Bobby gone, this was the way to go

    2. Fallon shot Roger Grimes. That was such a shock twist I did not see coming and it was so good. Really well done. Such a shame hardly anyone was watching by this point because this was Dynasty almost at its very best

    3. Pam did not find Mark in the Hong Kong hospital. Again I had no idea how that story would pan out back then. I was glued to the screen. Though that could also have something to do with how fabulous Victoria was, my cheering for Pam and being utterly mesmerised by how beautiful this woman was ;-)

    4. Katherine mowing down Bobby was a twist I didn’t know for sure what would happen either. So shocking and incredibly done. Those open ‘wolf’ eyes

    5. Tom being Sarah’s brother in Return to Eden :-( but then not really after all but he didn’t get to her on time to tell her :-(

    Ha! The surprising un-discovery. Like Christopher did not find Pam in Zurich.

    Sue Ellen’s discovery of Dusty being still alive was good too :)

    Too bad Pam didn't find Dusty in Hong Kong. That would have been a twist with a twist.

    1 - Richard is Angela's son in Falcon Crest: the twist with major consequences rather than just for shock value. Two of the show's leads and arch nemeses are now inextricably linked and the chessboard that was the power game of Tuscany Valley has just been upended.

    2 - Jason is Jeff's Father in The Colbys: the epic twist. The courtroom scenes were such high drama and to have Sable's scheming come back to bite her in the ass in such dramatic fashion was amazing. It added an extra layer of conflict to the already troubled Colby clan and laid the groundwork for more trouble to come.

    3 - The Resurrection of Michael Tyrone in Flamingo Road: the supernatural twist. Sadly unresolved and sadly no longer available to watch online. While most of the primetime soaps resorted to mistaken identity, lookalikes or missing bodies to explain away someone returning from the grave, Flamingo Road upped the ante by suggesting that voodoo was responsible for Michael's resurrection. It was certainly one of the most off the wall ways of reviving a character, until of course someone stepped out a shower a few years later.

    4 - Fallon shot Roger in Dynasty: the refreshing twist. A little too late to save the show or generate any major interest unfortunately but it was a good spin on the "Who Shot...?" trope.

    5 - Bobby in the shower: the problematic twist. I know that it was known that he was coming back but I'm not sure if anyone could've guessed it would have been in this fashion. Or if they could've guessed the problems it would cause in terms of continuity (both in Texas and on the west coast) and viewer reaction. Regardless, it is still talked about today as one of TV soap's greatest WTF moments.

    Um, how is this not soap excellence?



    There was also the absolute classic Pacific Drive!

    Oh, no. I've been triggered. I have gone on many hunger strikes which the corrupt establishment (of my parents) did not take seriously. Despite their many declarations that "Nutella is not food" when I had it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (and occasionally snacks), they would then change the rules and claim I was not on a hunger strike when I refused ALL food--but not Nutella, which they had establish it wasn't. Maddening!

    Congratulations, Falcon Crest![​IMG]

    That looks like a professional assassination rather than a kid who spontaneously picks up a gun and shoot it.:lol:
