# 059 <3.19> The Aftermath
 
 
(revised 05/02/2022)
 
 

The helper's vehicle at the crash site is a black / beige 1971 Buick LeSabre. The license plate number is 248 GMC.
It is the well known picture car that has been in use since # 013 (details there).

 
The fire truck is a customized 1981 Chevrolet K-30 body.
 
The tanker truck (behind the fire engine on the screen capture), which has been parked behind the construction barrier since the previous episode, is a silver early 1980's Kenworth C500.
The establishing shot of the California State Hospital for the Criminally Insane — the camera panning from a distinct octagonal guard tower to one of the buildings on the site — is stock footage of the Federal Correctional Institution Terminal Island in San Pedro, CA from a film library. After remodeling in the 2000's, that particular watch tower is now gone also; it used to stand approximately in the center of the penitentiary's border on South Seaside Avenue.
Note that the night shot does not feature the same location as the daylight establishing clip (compare # 054). Also note that this establishing shot for the psychiatric hospital features a different guard tower from the one used to establish the penitentiary in Fairlawn in # 048 and 049.
 
In Julia's nightmare in which Angela apppears in the psychiatric institution first as a fellow inmate, then as a matron, after that as a janitress and finally as a matron again, the segment with Angela being in two places (in front of Julia as the janitress, behind Julia as the matron — screen capture 2), was filmed with a photo double for JANE WYMAN. The matron filmed from behind, which eventually turns out to be Angela (screen grab 3) is portrayed by MARTHA MANOR in an appropriate wig.
The different heights give it away. JANE WYMAN (approximately 5'6") was a little shorter than ABBY DALTON (approximately 5'7"), which makes it seem that both actresses' heights are not consistent in the first segment at the door (screen capture 1) because JANE appears to be taller here. It is not an inconsistency though because JANE is wearing heels — as usual (albeit out of the camera angle here) whereas ABBY wears no shoes at all since Julia just got out of bed. When Angela later appears as the janitress, JANE is probably in flat footwear (again, out of the camera angle though). Since JANE could not stand in front of Julia and behind her at the same time (as seen on picture 2), it is pretty obvious that MARTHA MANOR served as a photo double towards the end of the scene. MARTHA was a bit taller and of wider build than JANE. She worked as a photo double for her quite a few times though, particularly when MELODY McCORD (JANE's usual body double) was not available.
 

The curly haired blonde played by uncredited extra BETTY JEANNE GLENNIE is still among the inmates at the California Hospital for the Criminally Insane.
Compare # 169 for biographical details about this minor rôle and a list of appearances throughout the series.
For details about the extra, compare # 026.

 

The identification code of the ambulance taking Linda to the Tuscany Valley Hospital is 88.

 
THOM MATHEWS, the actor who plays the blond paramedic this episode, also portrayed the blond guy at the pool during Lance and Melissa's honeymoon in Hawaii in season 1.
 
Although Michael drank quite bit of alcohol towards the end of # 058 and even admits to Chase that he is drunk, it is no problem for him to drive and even treat Melissa and Linda, who were injured in the automobile accident, at the hospital. Drunk driving is hardly a topic dealt with seriously in TV series made by LORIMAR.
 
One of the pictures in the hallway at the Tuscany Valley Hospital is the same prop that was used in Chase's room at the Tuscany Valley Hospital at the beginning of this season (# 041) and in the hospital's waiting area last season (# 033).
For LORIMAR's further use of this picture, check out the Beyond the Show – Props – Set Dressing section.
 
A poster with an artwork by American artist SUSAN PEAR MEISEL (born 1947) — "The Washington Monument" — can be seen in another hallway at the Tuscany Valley Hospital.
The same prop was already used in different areas of the same hospital in # 041 and 048.
 
At the Tuscany Valley Hospital, Michael tells Cole, Maggie and Chase that Linda has a slight concussion. The Giobertis go into Linda's room before Michael tells Angela that Melissa lost her baby. Inconsistency: After Chase and Maggie leave Linda's room, Maggie tells Chase that Joseph is really all Melissa has now. How could she know that if they were not present when Michael gave Angela the news?
 
The establishing shot of the Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion with Phillip's Jaguar is reused footage from # 023. Phillip's car had the license plate reading T976312 (like on the establishing clip) only in that episode; the car has been regularly propped again with the "usual" 327 WED license plate since. The same establishing shot will be used again in the following episode.
 
Mistake: In the scene with Michael and Terry in their bedroom, the long shot and the close-up are from various takes that were combined in the editing process. This becomes apparent because of the actors' different positions in subsequent frames: First, Michael's head is on the pillow with his whole face visible, and Terry is sitting up straight, looking down at Michael's hand in one moment. In the next frame, however, Michael's face is now resting more against the pillow, and Terry is leaning back slightly with her shoulder and hair on the pillow.
This is a mistake caused by the particular close-up filming technique — check # 001 (Gus in the Gioberti House) for details.
 
In Melissa's room at the Tuscany Valley Hospital, there is a reproduction (art print) of the 1888 "Sunflowers" painting ("Tournesols"; oil on canvas) from the still life series by the same name by VINCENT VAN GOGH (1853 – 1890).
The original of the aforementioned artwork is located at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam / The Netherlands.
 

Contrary to what the establishing shot of the Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion suggests, the scene with Lance and Emma sitting in the yard is not filmed at Spring Mountain, but on THE BURBANK STUDIOS (WARNER BROS. STUDIOS) backlot. It is the lawn area of the small park near Embassy Courtyard facing French Street.

 
Emma remembers her miscarriage after falling off the stairs in the Falcon Crest Winery Building (# 010). In real life, MARGARET LADD also had a miscarriage before her twins were born.
 
The Tuscany Valley Hospital parking lot in this episode is actually the parking lot of the Scottish Rite Masonic Temple in Hancock Park in Los Angeles — quite close to the filming site of the McKay House.
 
The black / beige Buick LeSabre — most recently seen in the current episode as the helper's car at the crash site (see above) — reappears on the hospital parking lot. It is the well known picture car that has been used quite often since # 013 (check there for details).
 

The red Volvo 242 DL sedan (compare # 055 for details) is used as a prop again; at the parking lot of the Tuscany Valley Hospital this time.

 

Uncredited extra LENNART JAKELL appears in this episode again as the distinguished white-haired Tuscany Valley gentleman — this time on the parking lot of the Tuscany Valley Hospital.
Compare # 227 for a list of appearances throughout the series.
For details about the extra, compare # 022.

 

Two more noticeable picture cars are parked on the Tuscany Valley Hospital parking lot: the brown Volkswagen Rabbit (yellow arrow) and the light yellow Ford Pinto Runabout (red arrow); compare # 001 for details on each vehicle.

 
SANDY WARD, the actor who plays Ron Lafferty, the Sansamour Construction foreman at the Tuscany Downs site, this season, also portrayed Neil Adams, the E. Grenwald Construction Co. foreman, in season 2.
 
The picture (still life) on the wall in the California State Hospital for the Criminally Insane is the same prop as the picture in front of the door to Julia's enology lab in the Falcon Crest Winery Building in seasons 1 and 2. The same picture was recently used in the hallway in the New Globe in season 3 (see # 057).
For LORIMAR's further use of this picture, check out the Beyond the Show — Props — Set Dressing section.
 

A stunt double (DONNA GARRETT) replaces SUSAN SULLIVAN for Maggie's fall down the stairway in Ranson's home.

 
Post-production mistake in the end credits: After the "Guest Starring" cards, ending with "And SARAH DOUGLAS as Pamela", the headline for the next billing block is accidentally missing. Production documents give evidence that the people on the next card, beginning with JASON GOLDBERG, were actually supposed to be credited as "Co-Starring".
