    1. Jenna wakes up with with gun in her hand after shooting Naldo

    2. Jenna gets sent down

    3. Pam tells Jenna she (pam) is a hard act to follow after the mechanical bull

    4. Not that I ever saw it or cared but when she left Dallas for good

    5. Katherine kills Jenna or did I just dream that? ;-)

    Clearly the vote here will be when she leaves lol
    Not me: I will add 2 unpopular ones; when she and Jack begin to get cosy (remember a fire side scene of think)

    And when she actually hooked up with Ray and even though Charlie was unpopular I quite liked when she played up and this added a neat realism to the show.

    Sadly, I'll have to sit out this round. I quite liked Jenna at first but Prissy Presley's lame acting ruined the character for me to the extent that I can't think of a single scene she was in that I found particularly memorable (or perhaps more accurately, that I want to remember).

    Oh Karin that's an awful lot of Jenna in one place. I might need dr Elby to get me through the trauma of seeing so much of her

    I've edited my choices to include this one. It's got a special association.

    This was the final scene the BBC showed before pulling Dallas off the air for months due to a bidding war with ITV. I was really looking forward to the next episode, but then a voiceover announced that Dallas would be back "later in the year".

    For some time I believed this episode was an official season finale, so it felt (and still feels) more important to me than it would have done otherwise.

    This was always going to be my number one and would feature in a top ten of all scenes because it totally knocked me for six when it aired. I have no memory of there been a break between episodes, which makes me wonder why its ranked so highly on my memories from the show.

    I never liked Jenna because I knew she was the one person who could keep Bobby & Pam apart, but when this happened everything changed. I was really upset that she had been framed with what seemed an eternity before she was eventually vindicated.

    It was quite a big deal at the time and I think made the news.

    And of course because we fell behind, there were oodles of spoilers in the tabloids while it was off the air. Bobby's death in particular was common knowledge way ahead of time. I remember seeing a News Of The World spread with photos of Bobby getting run over in the driveway months before it finally aired here.

    I found this about it:

    (Sorry about the red text in the quote. It wasn't showing as highlighted in the text box and I must've missed a couple when editing them out).

    I'm really horrible at coming up with lists like these, but when I think of Jenna, the one scene that immediately comes to mind is her waking up on the floor of the hotel room. That's probably one of my faves of the entire show.

    My favorite scenes of Jenna my least favorite character are :

    1. When Bobby dumps her played by PP and tells her he asked Pam to marry him.

    2. When the jury found her wrongfully guilty of killing Naldo.

    3. Nursery room scene where Jenna confessed to Bobby she still loves him even though she is married to Ray and Bobby tells her he will not be coming around anymore (even with Pam gone he doesn't want her or feels the same way).
