7 Reasons Why We Love Fallon Carrington on ‘Dynasty’

Credit: The CW/ Dynasty

Published

on


Fallon Carrington is one-of-a-kind. 

Fans were initially drawn to The CW’s Dynasty because of the scandalous drama but we’ve stayed because of Liz Gillies, who does an incredible job bringing the female protagonist and lead heroine to life. 

Gillies’ Fallon is a diva (in the best possible way), a businesswoman, a fashion icon, and more often than not, the show’s saving grace. She’s always ready for a good scheme, just as long as she comes out on top. But underneath that pristine exterior, she’s just a girl who loves and wants to be loved. 

Fallon is the queen of Carrington Manor, and we wouldn’t have it any other way! 

Here are some of the reasons we love Fallon Carrington on Dynasty

 

She’s Bold, Ambitious, and Confident

Fallon is the girl boss in her personal, professional, and romantic life. She won’t let anything stand in her way, and she’s not afraid to speak her mind or roll up her sleeves and do the work or get a little dirty. Even when she’s out of her league or element, Fallon will dive in headfirst because she’s confident and aware of her own capabilities.

Her Closet Is the Dream

Staple pieces, shoes, handbags, oversized hats, Fallon has it all! Everyone’s fashion on Dynasty is superb, but Fallon’s is unbeatable. It’s a huge part of her character and reflects her personality. She’s able to pull anything off including business chic, preppy casual, or evening bombshell. Her closet is so impressive that even Kirby borrows some staple pieces (we wouldn’t mind getting some hand-me-downs either)! 

 

She’s Business Oriented

Fallon has money on her mind. In the early days, she’s driven to follow in her father’s footsteps and become the new CEO of Carrington Atlantic. When that falls through, she proves that she’s determined to pave her own way as an entrepreneur. Throughout the seasons, she’s found many ways to reinvent herself and reinvest her time while making business-savvy decisions.

Her Love for Family

The Carringtons are one of the most dysfunctional families on television and the family tree is rather complex. But what remains clear is the love that they have for each other. Despite the constant arguing and betrayal, they always have each other’s backs.

Fallon is a daddy’s girl through-and-through, and while their relationship might not always be perfect, all she wants is for him to love her back and recognize her potential. Her care and appreciation also extends to friends like Culhane and Monica who she treats like family. 

 

She’ll Fight For What she Wants

When Fallon sets her mind on something, nothing will get in her way of achieving that goal. When she wanted to win back Liam, she went out of her way to eliminate the competition and prove that she was the best. Her determination is to be admired because it’s what helps her back up anytime she gets knocked down. We can all learn a thing or two about being resilient from Fallon.

Her Witty One-Liners and Comebacks

Fallon’s words and witty zingers are her weapons. She never hesitates because she’s always equipped and ready to hurl the best comeback. Her snark has given fans some of the best and funniest quotes from the reboot.

 

How Vulnerable She Is Around Liam

Fallon rarely shows her heart, but if there’s anyone who is able to bring down her walls and help her open up, it’s Liam. The love she has for him is pure, and while she sometimes makes some questionable decisions, he’s always around to keep her grounded and level-headed. Their relationship is full of passion, mutual respect, and genuine love. They’re a perfect match — he keeps her accountable while she’s helped him live a life he enjoys.

Batwoman Review – Can Ryan Wilder’s Kryptonite Infection Be Cured? (2×06)

Published

on

Batwoman Review Do Not Resuscitate Season 2 Episode 6

On Batwoman Season 2 Episode 6, Ryan Wilder could no longer hide the fact that her kryptonite wound was slowly killing her. 

Talk about a painful death. 

And despite all of it, she never let the people of Gotham, or her Bat team, down. As Luke pointed out, if that isn’t a hero, I don’t know what is. 

Luke felt pretty terrible about the fact that he was the reason that Ryan kept her injury on the down-low and suffered in silence, but the moment also made him realize just how dedicated Ryan actually is to being Batwoman. She’s taking this seriously even if there’s a chance it’s only a temporary gig. 

Of course, with no actual cure for kryptonite, this makes the hunt for the Dessert Rose that much more pressing. 

Everyone wants a piece of Coryana’s miracle cure. And based on how they’re all behaving, I’m not surprised Safiyah has kept the location of the island under wraps. 

Just imagine if it got into the wrong hands… say the rogue doctors at Hamilton Dynamics that stole the map from the Crows because they want to replicate it and get rid of the diseases. And while there’s nothing wrong with trying to find a cure for virtually every disease (although, I’m sure the pharmaceutical industry wouldn’t be pleased, unless the idea is to charge a high premium for the drug once it’s available), the approach was quite problematic.

He had no problem testing on patients as if they were lab rats and didn’t care how many of them died. He then sent Aaron, an unhinged patient with spontaneous rage issues, to kidnap Mary and Jacob Kane in order to get information, and then he and his men ambushed the Crows and stole the map from them!

Here’s my issue with that whole scene – after managing to get the map from two of Gotham’s most violent criminals, Ocean and Alice (without backup, might I add), Sophie somehow thought it was a good idea to bring it with her to a hostage situation.

Sure, she wanted to save Mary and Jacob, but how would anyone know if she swapped it with a fake?

What a fail on her part.

Despite Batwoman’s disdain for Sophie (whom she hilariously refers to as “Crow-phie”), she couldn’t gamble with her life and handed over the map.

That means Batwoman wants the Dessert Rose to heal herself, Hamilton doctors want it to create an all-encompassing cure and The Crows, Mary, and Luke want the map so that it can lead them to Kate, who is allegedly still alive. 

A lot of people with a lot of motivation! 

Ocean, who was confirmed to be the one growing the psychedelic mushrooms for Snake Bite, had the map to Coryana (hidden under the real Napier painting) this whole time, but never told Alice it was a map that could lead them to the one woman who not only wants him dead, but also erased all of his romantic memories with Alice.

There’s a chance he didn’t know about the map, but how would he know to burn it when Sophie caught them?

And if the Dessert Rose is all he’s after, why didn’t he just follow the map back to where it all started in the first place?

What are we missing about Ocean?

Though, admittedly, I’m really into this partnership. Ocean seems like Alice’s equal only slightly deranged, and seeing Alice in love has plenty of potential.

It’s unclear why Coryana wants Ocean dead, but Alice made the right choice by sparing him because that’s clearly leverage to get her sister back. Plus, pretending to “kill him” will help her back into Safiyah’s good graces, and hopefully, we’ll learn more about their previous relationship.

It looks like there was a time that Alice wasn’t a complete psycho, and while it’s delicious to watch her torment the innocent souls of Gotham, it would be fun to explore a different side to her that’s less vindictive. 

I’m a little upset that the series brought Angelique and Ryan back together just to rip them apart again. The relationship was doomed from the start since they never confronted what went wrong the first time around, and instead, jumped right back into a relationship that was previously plagued by bad decisions and addiction. 

Angelique may be clean now, but she’s still dealing and has no plans to stop. That’s problematic for Ryan, who went to prison for her and wanted her to make the best of this second chance.

The reality is that no matter how much they love each other, they don’t see eye-to-eye. Sophie may not always have Ryan’s best interests at heart, but she was right for calling out Ryan for returning to the same lifestyle that previously got her in trouble. 

If she wants to be the hero, she can’t also be dating someone that’s on the opposing team.

Ryan got upset with Luke after finding out he was in cahoots with Alice to find Ocean, but if you think about it, Angelique is working with Ocean, who now has a very “complicated” connection with Alice. That’s a big red relationship flag!

Jacob Kane also needs to learn how to be a father. Mary finally told him about her underground clinic, and while it wasn’t by choice or the way she wanted to do it, it was a weight lifted off her shoulders that she could finally be honest with him. 

And instead of embracing her or trying to understand it, he told her he was shutting it down. 

His logic didn’t even track. After finding out that his wife and Mary’s mom, who was previously CEO of Hamilton Dynamics, gave the green light for human trials, Jacob figured he had to intervene in Mary’s life before she followed the same trajectory. 

There’s no way to justify the logic, especially since Mary has helped so many people that couldn’t afford healthcare and was doing it for the right reasons and not for the money.

Jacob’s problem is that he continues to alienate all of his loved ones without realizing that he’s the biggest problem right along with his corrupt Crows. He could get so much more done if he just worked with Batwoman and Mary instead of riding his high horse and thinking he’s better. 

And then he’s surprised that he’s blindsided by everyone’s secrets when he doesn’t even try to get to know his daughters, and when he does pay attention to them, he takes away the things that make them who they are. 

What did you think of the episode? Will Ryan find the Dessert Rose in time?

What are your thoughts on Alice and Ocean?
