Kate reappears in Knots Landing with a four-year-old daughter named Molly and tells Gary he is the father. Anne also returns and goes to stay with Greg. Abby tells Greg that she can get him the missing document if he pays her $1 million so she can pay the IRS her back taxes.

A Show with Class
29 April 2001 | by fanofeighties1See all my reviews

I loved "Knots Landing" as so many others did. I really miss watching this classy program. I would refuse to leave my house on Thursday nights, afraid I'd miss my show!! It was addicting!!!It's to bad it isn't still on the air. None of today's programs even come close to being as Great as "Knots Landing".
