That whole oh-so-80s ending sequence is everything!!!   Just watching that 3 minutes makes me want to watch the show and know more!!!  I want to know why Evie wasn't asked to be in the shoot, why she's pissed about, if the blonde guy who gets his passport stamped is Estelle's son or her lover, is that guy for real with that beard, why is he holding Estelle captive, is the airport part of the compound, is the entire nation on the bearded guy's payroll........ so much!!!!  Wonder if someone posted the next episode...

 

Gosh I'd forgotten what a great group of women SFT had in those days.  I loved Suzy, Liza (Sherry Mathis), and Sunny, but Jo, Estelle, Stephanie, Wendy- I really like each character for who they are and find them compelling to watch, even all these years later.  My memories of Search are few and far between, as I only watched it from age 3-7, but going back, I can see why certain things stuck with me.  I wish Wendy had, especially since I've been told stories about how angry I was at Wendy for sleeping with Warren while he was married to Suzy.  I believe that's why I often think of the Suzy that came before this one with such affection.   Though I really love the actress playing Suzy in these years now and think of her as Suzy, I remember that as a child, I didn't feel the same way about her.  I always missed MY Suzy.

 

The blonde-haired man is Chase Kendall, Estelle's son. Here he's played by Robert Brian Wilson who earlier played Channing Capwell Jr. on Santa Barbara. Before Wilson, Kevin Conroy played Chase. Sherry Mathis was gone by this time. Louan Gideon was playing Liza.

Thanks for sharing those. That scene where she has the gun on him, and the music, and the hair - it's so so so '80s. Probably the essence of '80s soaps more than almost anything else I've ever seen.

 

Those scenes were great (Teri Eoff's work impresses me the more I watch it) but I was much more involved in the scene with Aidar and Justine. After a cheesy start it felt so real and they were both so likeable. It's a shame nothing was done with either character.

Eoff is a powerful young actress with what I've seen of her work. I thought she handled the breakdown scenes very well. 

 

Speaking of Teri Eoff, was it her decision to leave the show or did they chose to kill Suzy in hopes of a ratings spike? Personally, they should've allowed Suzy and Cagney to have their happy ending. 

 

Was Adair in the finale or was she and Chase written off by then?

I'm not sure. 

 

I never have watched or seen much of the last months of SFT but I wonder how Ashford was with Joanna Going. I never felt like Lisa Grady was much of a fit for her.

 

I think Adair and Chase were long gone. 

 

Which Kate do you prefer?

From what little I've seen of SFT, I prefer Jo Henderson's Kate. Maeve McGuire's Kate comes off as a bit vampish. I am guessing that might've switched her up b/c she does seem like she was jocking Jo's (the character) style with being the "salt-of-the-earth" matriarch on the show.

Kevin Conroy who played Chase was on Dynasty by the time SFT was cancelled.

Was he the only Chase?

 

I really liked him on AW. I wish that had worked out.

No Robert Brian Wilson was Chase #2

Wilson was Channing on Santa Barbara and the Santa Claus killer in Silent Night Deadly Night. He was also on Generations

I googled and it said Robert Brian Wilson also played the part. So assume it must have been during the final year of the show. Kevin played Bart Fallmont during the 1985-1986 season of Dynasty. I think the network got nervous with his storyline with Steven and it was ended abruptly. Conroy is best known today for doing the voice of Batman.

That sounds like typical Dynasty (didn't Steven just go back to Sammy Jo yet again after that?). I remembered he was in the reunion movie and wondered if it was Conroy as I would have liked seeing him with Al Corley, but apparently it was someone else. It's a shame - Conroy had the perfect face and body and charisma for Parting Glances-type scenes.

Yes Steven did later on briefly. Sammy Jo first hooked up with Bart's brother Clay played by Ted McGinley. He was also seeing Amanda at one point. When she and Steven started living together again, it was a platonic relationship. She then fell in love with that football player, played by Tom Schanley. He died after like 5 episodes of an OD. Steven left the show soon after.
