Sam, Lahoma, Missy (now widowed again), and Missy’s baby by Danny Fargo have all moved to “Somerset.” Strangely, none of the catastrophes on soaps—and nearly every soap event is a catastrophe—are set up with much sentiment.

David was able to save the baby but Renata was crushed to death by the falling debris. Not that there is much amnesia or that much insanity out here. Russ and Rachel have divorced.
