The Scene You Never Saw: Missed 'Placed'

The real ending for ''Melrose Place'' -- Details of the shots edited after the Oklahoma bombing

Series of Shots
One-by-one the bombs are detonated:
— Kimberly is hit by debris, the force of the explosion sending her flying into the air.
— Jo's apartment window blows out and Amanda flies down the stairs.
— Amanda's stairwell and windows blow.
— Alison's fireplace blows as she hoists a drink, sending her backwards into the kitchen.
— The courtyard goes up in a huge fireball. Fade out.

The End.
