  1. hi well i know i watched these epedisos and one thing not mentioned is the unique and sad version of Sarah’s theme as its called LONDON bridge when Sarah is angry even though you don’t see her a very ANGRY version is played when she is happy they play a faster JOYFUL version but in these scenes when David has this feeling of impending doom f0r Burke a very sad version plays even Carolyn hears the music it upsets her..she seems to hear’ the message in it interesting i think..One other thing is the people who created the Face Book JONATHAN FRID FANS still miss him very sad..and it is very sad..he was ONE of a kind ..DS is one of a kind..I listened again to the FATE of the characters which starts with Jonathan Frid reading Shakespeare OUR REVELS now are ended a very fitting epitaph for DS its written by SAM HALL .which i think is interesting..its all days gone by..now most of the soaps on ABC are now GONE ..only one remains I saw DS from the start..and ONE LIFE TO LIVE from the start and I think saw MOST of AMC but they have all ended now other daytime stuff now..so its all kind of an end of a whole era now..but again not really an end for the actor who played Burke only even then he didn’t last long..ALL the actors on DS were awesome !! and there is a pic of Jonathan Frid < Kathryn Scott and Lara Parker meeting Johnny Depp that was not long before FRID died. sad posting here but memories..too..
