Deception, jealousy and lies were at the core of a fantastic season finale.
I’d say the season’s ups and downs are worth watching simply for their shocking finales.
By the end of Dynasty Season 2 Episode 22, two dead bodies were pulled out of the Carrington lake, Liam was drowning in the pool (at least someone uses the amenities), Blake betrayed everyone, Dominique betrayed Colby, Kirby betrayed Fallon, and Adam was more deranged than ever before.
Yeah, it was a hot mess, but I was eating up every second.
This is what we’ve been wanting from a nighttime soap!
Adam will eventually get what’s coming to him, I have no doubt about that, but for now, he’s ripping the Carrington family apart.
His anger is almost at capacity, and I’m waiting for the moment he implodes.
Breaking the glass at Atlantix HQ was bad, but we need everyone to witness just how unhinged he is.
Adam has made it his mission to destroy everyone in the family while winning over his father’s love.
And while we expect him to do some crazy things, he went a little overboard on this episode.
First off, he’s responsible for sending Fallon the letter revealing that Liam has a 10-year-old child which he gave up for adoption.
A major bombshell like that deserved way more attention, yet it was only used to amplify the animosity between Liam and Adam.
How much do you want to bet we’ll meet Liam’s kid one day if he survives?
Liam should have known better than to confront Adam without anyone present, but I guess none of them deem Adam a huge risk, though Fallon should be more cautious considering he pushed Alexis face-forward into the fire.
Now, is Liam really dead?

Dynasty Review – Saving Kirby from a Cult (3×10)
Operation save Kirby was in full effect on Dynasty Season 3 Episode 10, but the episode felt more like a filler and didn’t do much in terms of progressing the overall storyline.
Kirby, though an asset to the show, is a supplemental character whose rescue mission didn’t need to take up a full hour.
The best part was seeing Fallon and Adam team up as they pretended to be husband and wife to infiltrate the compound.
Without having to play the deranged brother, Sam Underwood was allowed to shine in his role and almost convinced us to like Adam … almost.
Specifically, he was able to showcase his musical talents in a groovy duet with Fallon. Those two were so happy together.
When Fallon and Adam put aside their difference, they make a great team.
Their dynamic is fun, there’s an energy about them, and they hilariously play off of each other.
But that’s a testament to how great the actors are at working with all the curveballs thrown their way.
Unfortunately, when it came to their story arcs, the moment didn’t fit naturally into the storyline leading up to it.
It’s almost as if the writers use what will work for them in that moment and disregard established story arcs and character relationship
If you backtrack, you’ll realize that Fallon and Adam aren’t on good terms with each prior to this scene.
Adam was kicked out of the house and furious about the fact that he’d lost daddy’s support. For him, it’s always been about winning over daddy.
He also found out that Fallon was responsible for making him fall for Nadia, a fake doctor, and leading him to believe that Blake slept with her causing him to burn down the winery.
On the flip-side, Fallon just found out that Adam tried to kill her fiancee and was the person responsible for Liam’s amnesia.
It seems unlikely that they would forget all that transpired between them and kumbaya their way into some cult-ish commune to save Kirby.
The fact that it was fun to watch doesn’t excuse the fact that it didn’t make any sense in terms of where we are in the storyline.
Kirby seemed to be waiting for someone to come rescue her and prove that they care enough about her to convince her to leave the cult.
It was a cry for help if there ever was one.
But I can’t say I blame her — the Carringtons have been rude to her and her own father couldn’t stand up for her.
The moment she realized Fallon was genuine in her desire to make sure she was okay, she walked right out of there without hesitation.
Sadly, Fallon’s motivations for helping Kirby weren’t driven by love but rather her desire to get revenge on Blake.
Even when it’s about Kirby, it’s still about Blake.
Also, if anyone wants to center a storyline around a cult, it needs to be done properly. They’re serious business.
Cults finesse the deepest, darkest secrets out of you so they can use them to blackmail you into staying.
They’d never let Kirby walk out of there of her own free will, especially when she was about to reach gold status and give them all her money.
Dynasty Midseason Review – Was Blake Guilty of Murder? (3×09)
*Spoilers for the midseason premiere of Dynasty! If you have not watched the episode yet, well, you’ve been warned so don’t spoil it for yourself*
Blake got away with murder on Dynasty Season 3 Episode 9 with the help of Cristal and Fallon.
But really, who’s surprised by that?
Usually, courtroom trials aren’t the most exciting part of an episode, but when a Carrington is on trial and a Carrington-turned-Colby is on the stand, you just never know what’s going to happen within the confines of those four walls.
And a lot happened.
The shock of Alexis’ return carried throughout the episode as everyone tried to figure out what she and her new husband, Jeff Colby, were up to.
Fallon can make a thousand jokes about the incestual relationship and they never get old. She dodged a bullet there.
Alexis took the stand as a surprise witness and claimed to have proof that Blake was responsible for Mack’s murder, but unfortunately, she failed to provide an airtight alibi.
It took Fallon less than a day to figure out she was lying and expose her for it. Better luck next time, I suppose.
While Alexis’ attempts may have failed, the new Alexis didn’t.
Elaine Hendrix came in rocking her best Meredith Blake outfit and it’s almost as if she hadn’t skipped a beat.
Her take on Alexis is refreshing, witty, and her dialogue even seems better than it was before.
There’s potential here to elevate Alexis to the ranks of Fallon, who, at times, seems to be carrying the show on her back.
While Blake and Fallon made some jokes at Alexis’ expense, for the most part, they just accepted her relationship with Colby for whatever it was.
They had bigger problems on their hands considering Blake was about to go down for murder.
However, Dominique could not accept that her son had married her arch-nemesis.
Seeing a sister-in-law turn into a daughter-in-law is a hard pill to swallow for most people.
Dominique called Alexis out for being a gold-digger who would do anything to get money, but Jeff quickly rebutted all of her insults by saying that the only person using him this whole time was his own mother.
Dominique may have been right about Alexis, but she was also a hypocrite.
Ever since she blew into town, Dominique has been trying to get money from her son, lying about her intentions, and using him to propel Vanessa’s career.
How can she stand there and call out anyone else?
Dominique tried to play dirty, but Alexis played dirtier by gently shoving her down the stairs, which cause Dom to leave town.
It’s about time, too. Dominique has been around for a whole season and hasn’t accomplished much of anything.
Her existence is pointless.
And there’s no need to worry about Colby because from the looks of it, he made a deal with the devil that benefits both of them.
Both Jeff and Alexis hate Blake equally; there’s strength in numbers so they hoped to put him in jail permanently and get their fortune.
Now that those plans have gone down the gutter, it’s unclear what their next move will be.
Blake is like a phoenix, constantly rising from the ashes and getting another chance. It’s astonishing that a man who is clearly guilty walks around so confidently and lies straight to his daughter’s face about being innocent.
Blake was in the do-or-die mode, sure, but it also tells you everything you need to know about the man Blake is.
He always has a trick up his sleeve whether if be getting rid of the juror or paying off the other one to make it a hung jury.
Without substantial evidence, there will never be a retrial and Blake is a free man.
Fallon should have gotten proof before she helped her father, but regardless of the truth, there’s no situation where she would have let her father serve a life sentence.
Dynasty Review – The Sensational Blake Carrington Trial (3×08)
There was absolutely no order in the court on the midseason finale of Dynasty.
And that’s exactly what we expected considering the new and improved Alexis Carrington Colby made her epic return on Dynasty Season 3 Episode 8.
DA Erica Brown truly had an ace up her sleeve when it came to the secret witness.
Though Alexis’ moment of glory was brief, there’s no doubt she’s going to put a wrench in Blake’s murder trial when episodes return in 2020.
Blake and Anders prematurely celebrated his win, but Alexis serves as a reminder that he’s made plenty of enemies over the years that will gladly watch him go down.
Elaine Hendrix is a perfect new Alexis.
Maybe it’s because she’s been vying for this role since embracing the gold-digging socialite Meredith Blake on the Parent Trap in 1998, or maybe it’s because she looks like a slightly older Fallon.
Whatever it is, it’s working for her.
Unfortunately, Alexis’ testimony won’t just hurt Blake, it’ll hurt Anders by proving that he lied under oath about killing Mack as “self-defense.”
Anders’ loyalty is impressive but it’s misplaced and naive.
He thinks of Blake as a son, which explains why he’d perjure himself, but Blake doesn’t deserve his kindness, especially not at the expense of Kirby.
Blake has always been a devious person who would throw anyone under the bus to protect himself. This trail proved that he is the monster the public is painting him out to be.
He destroyed Fallon (although, she didn’t do herself any favors by throwing the gavel) with the spoiled brat narrative and then threatened and exiled Kirby.
None of that is okay. If Fallon is acting like a “chip off the old Blake,” it’s because she’s been exposed to this behavior her whole life.
