Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 0001
AIRED:
This great soap opera begins with a flashback to a party in honor of Channing Capwell Jr. in Santa Barbara, California in 1979. Channing and his older brother, Mason, are entertaining the guests until the butler, Phillip, gives Channing a note. Channing asks the maid, Santana Andrade, if he'll see her tonight. He then follows instructions to go to the Capwell study. When Channing enters the study, it's clear that someone was waiting behind the desk. The person points a gun and pulls the trigger. Seconds later, Channing is lying dead on the floor. "Santa Barbara" then cuts five years ahead in time to the San Quentin prison on July 30, 1984. The warden tells Joe Perkins that Joe is released from prison; the parole board moved up its decision on Joe.moreless
