the 100 most memorable moments in soap history
In what is undoubtedly AW's most famous Friday episode cliffhanger from its entire run, a classic 1979 installment saw arch rivals Rachel Cory (Victoria Wyndham) and Janice Frame (Christine Jones) struggling with a knife in St. Croix as they fell into a swimming pool. By the time the episode concluded, we knew one of the two women had been killed, but who? Hooked viewers had to tune in Monday for the answer that Janice, who had been planning to kill Mac Cory (Douglass Watson) and acquire his estate, was no longer of this earth. This classic AW moment is what good soap cliffhangers are all about.
