From the feedback received, it seems like the No. 2 episode chosen was for one of two reasons: 1) Early James Stenbeck, or 2) One of the earliest available ATWT episodes remaining in the archives.  James and Gunnar battling by an open airplane door leading to a shocking conclusion was the story in the episode our readers voted as the third most anticipated.
