I found this interview online where Michele goes into detail about this storyline with lots of clips from Knots about 9 minutes in. A bit worthy, but nice to see her in her prime, and some clips of our sadly missed Kevin Dobson:
Has anyone mentioned the famous exploding hoover cliffhanger? That's my all time fave, episode 818:
Fiona's ominous dialogue: "If you were going to kill me, you'd have done it before now" followed by that close up of her foot and the stunt double catapulted backwards....... In terms of shock...
Yes it would be a gamble and I may be wrong, it's just my humble opinion. I have watched it on and off over the years since 2001 or so with Gary Lucy's rape storyline. Bringing back all these old characters just seems a bit desparate and tragic, as with Eastenders. It's probably just that i've...
Mack had some lovely scenes in Season 4, trying to bond with Eric and Diana when he first moved in with the family. He got it wrong a few times, but they learned to love and respect him in the end. I haven't heard anything from Michele Lee quoted yet. Is she lying low a bit these days?

I agree with the end of that last post - Melissa was terrible, her character had long outlived it's purpose, she was incredibly annoying and she needed to go IMHO. I actually quite liked Pilar, contrary to popular opinion - to me she was a breath of fresh air and I appreciated what Filerman was...
I liked him too. Him and Jane Wyman were the 2 people that made we want to watch this show. Something about his piercing eyes and that sexy beard. I'd have loved to work on his vineyard taking his masculine orders. Angela would have really scared me though.
Same here! BBC 1 in the UK took the show off air midway through Season 3. Then about 3 years later they brought it back again in a new afternoon slot. From Season 4 onwards I taped it religiously and watched when I got home from school.
I had a similar feeling about this episode, but I am also fond of it - it's one of the first ones I ever watched and got me into this show. The criminal underworld stuff and Angelo whoever is name is was all a bit contrived and confusing, but as you say, that ambiguous ending kind of...
I can imagine a fun scene between Val and Bobby talking about the twins:
Bobby: So how are the twins?
Val: Bobby and Betsy are fine. Do you know who we named Bobby after?
Bobby: Me? Oh, that's so flattering.
Val: We named him after you, so that your name lives on, even after you're gone.
