BEST LOVE STORY|
RICHARD & MAGGIE, FALCON CREST
People had been waiting fo ryears for these two to get together. The chemistry was always there. Unfortunately, so was Robert Foxworth, who played Chase. When he decided to leave the show, the producers split up Chase and Maggie and gradually made the latent attraction between his brother and his wife potent and inevitable.
Perhaps the nicest feature of this adult relationship is that Maggie and Richard were friends first. Richard proved his devotion by being more dependable and supportive than Chase during several miserable Maggie-style crises without ever expecting her to become romantically involved with him. He was considerate enough to let Maggie sort out her own confusion about the last days of her marriage and let her come to him when she was ready.
She did, and they're great together.
