    Story arcs? Cliff hangers?

    As for me, in the top five there are the Val twins abduction, Syd dying on the operations table, Karen's abduction, Gary persuming dead, and anything involving Abby...

    What's yours?

    My favorite moments from "Knots" were:

    Ciji's murder (from Season 4), not that I didn't like Ciji, it was just unique that Ciji wasn't a villain or an evil character but yet so many other characters had a motive for killing her

    The "Wolfbridge" storyline (from Season 5)

    The abduction of Val's newborn twins (from Season 6)

    Laura's death and funeral (from Season 9)

    Jill's attempted murder of Val (Season 9 cliffhanger)

    I agree about Laura

    her trip to the clinic with her theme playing in background....

    It was so sad. I really loved her. do you know why she left the show?

    On the 1st DVD dpecial features, Joan Van Arc says that Constance id a therapist today

    that's too bad because she was a good actress

    Constance McCashin was written out of the show by the producers, who had to trim the cast for budget reasons.  Unfortunately, as the series went on, it became more and more expensive to keep it on the air and so certain supporting characters were sacrificed in order to keep the lead actors on the show.  The same year that Constance McCashin was let go, Julie Harris ("Lilliemae"), Douglas Sheehan ("Ben") and Steve Shaw ("Eric") were all let go for the same reasons.

    During the last season of "Knots," budget cuts had gotten so bad that producers could no longer afford to have the regular cast members appear in every episode, that's why a lot of the lead characters are missing from several episodes.  Michele Lee ("Karen") was the only cast member to appear in every episode of the series, however, during the final season, she had to work for scale (low pay) in order to appear in certain episodes.

    I was and still a big fan of the show.  I kept up with all the news regarding the series, including behind the scenes info.  I have a vast amount of knowledge regarding the show, but I can't say specifically where I got it, just reading news articles of the years.

    yes i already read all this, but i don't know where exactly too

    i agree that was a pity to let go mccashin and harris because of budget cuts, but some other shows did it too

    my fav moment is obviously laura's funeral, i cried so much ...

    i like a lot the moment where abby is presumed to have killed summer's half bro (sorry forget his name)
    but i like almost all abby storylines
    i really like linda fairgate bad moments too

    I LOVED Linda Fairgate!!
    I seriously don't get why many fans hated her.

    Val was cute, Abby was plain awesome, and so was Sumner. Too bad they never gave Michael a personality.

    I loved the naked cricket game Paige & Greg had LOL! They had some amazing moments together. For example when she was swimming naked in the pool and asked him to join her, then he said: "I do not swim in shark-infested water."
