Why didn't the story line change right after Digger dies.
After a couple of miscarriages, Pam finds out that she has inherited from her father, Digger Barnes, a fatal disease in children.
They even have Little John, Suellen's baby, (later John Ross), tested for the disease, in case Clif is the father and could pass on the disease.
The story lines evolves as Pam reveals this to Bobby, deciding to never have a child.
Subsequently, on Digger's death bed, in Pam's presence, he reveals that he is not Pam's father, and murdered Pam's real father in a fight.
So, nobody picks up that Pam is no longer a carrier of this disease and could therefore have a baby, with no more disease to worry about.
Instead she has a breakdown, is hospitalized, following an attempt to leap from a building.
In later episodes drama surrounds her adoption of Christopher, etc.
So, I wonder when this omission was discovered.
Seems like I heard it was revealed by a viewer.
They changed the reason, I think, saying Pam wouldn't try to become pregnant on account of her
previous miscarriages. But, isn't this odd?
Anyone know more about this?
I don't even know if people post here, since the last entries are in 2004.
