    I couldn't stand the little bitch.

    Out to hurt Melissa whod never been anything but a friend.

    Her stupid pre-adolescent motive for doing so.

    And mostly Cole being stupid and easily manipulated for her character arc to work.

    She really dragged down the year she was on.

    I have very little sympathy for people like Melissa Agretti so I could enjoy this for being her comeuppance.
    Yes, I hate it when they do that. To be fair, Cole was a very naive person, it's what got him involved with Tuscany bitch Melissa in the first place.

    The problem with Robin (imho) is that she wasn't very entertaining to watch, maybe it was the casting, I don't know.
    I think she's one of the most unremarkable FC characters.

    When the surrogacy storyline commenced Robin appeared to be sympathetic. However as time went on she became more of a 'bunny boiler' type, at which time it was too late for Melissa and Cole to cancel the agreement because of the pregnancy. Cole really had his head in the sand to think the whole thing could work, down the road. Melissa became jealous and paranoid of her cousin. Then again if the surrogacy story had been a bed of roses it would have been boring.


    Robin Agretti meets Angela, in the Falcon Crest study. They will be discussing her child with Cole. The very same child Melissa wants to raise as her own, as a result of the initial surrogacy agreement, (a scene from season 5, 1985 - '86):

    Angela: "I assume you have been causing a great deal of trouble, for the Giobertis?"

    Robin: "I didn't mean to cause any trouble."

    Angela: "It is time we had a little chat. Sit down! This could be a perfect opportunity for both of us."

    Robin: "Wait a minute. I just want my baby. What do you mean?"

    Angela: "Melissa poisons everything she touches, including my grandsons. Now she is not going to raise your baby."

    Robin smiles and then Chao-Li enters with tea in the best Falcon Crest china, for the three of them.

    I always liked Robin. As I said here long ago, Robin was the kind of girlfriend that a beech like Melissa deserved. And her intentions were obvious since she rang their bell! I think one of the first things she said to her cousin was: "Cole is so hot"! (And I agreed with her...). If there are so many fans who hate her is because the actress, Barbara Howard, was great in her role. And she and Melissa had a lot of good bantering scenes that were so fun to watch! It was as if Sue Ellen, instead of being the repressed stepford wife that she was, had treated Kristin as she deserved, especially when she was pregnant. Can you imagine them at Southfork while she was carrying future Ugly Baby? That would have turned Season 3 into a much different season, and probably much better...

    Cole's daughter Hope never came to visit Tuscany, sadly. Which was greedy of Robin.
