Adam Carrington is getting what he believes he deserves on Dynasty Season 2 Episode 16.

I have to say, I cannot wait for Jeff Colby to expose him, take him down, kill him. Basically, whatever he has to do to get rid of him.

Did anyone realize that Adam is now part of the opening sequence as a series regular? Why?

As it stands, Colby is Alexis’ only hope at getting away from maniacal son.

The rest of her family is either blinded by the promise of second chances or too consumed with themselves to really care about her.

Blake welcomed Adam with open arms because he’s guilty over Adam’s terrible childhood.

Fallon is not only weirded out by Adam, but she’s also too obsessed with trying to prove that she’s still a boss babe and simultaneously jealous of all the attention Adam is getting from Blake.

The attention that she believed she’s earned.

Sure, I chuckled when both Blake and Fallon believed that their mother got drunk and face planted into the fireplace like it was a normal occurrence, but it also proved that her family is going to be worthless in getting her any justice.

Which leaves Colby as our only hope.

Dynasty Review – Liam Proposes to Fallon, But Will They Get Their Happily Ever After? (3×13)

Dynasty You See Most Things in Terms of Black & White Review

Do you know what was more dramatic than Liam’s espionage noir pitch on Dynasty Season 3 Episode 13? That cliffhanger.

While the latter half of the episode was an emotional rollercoaster, the first half fell a bit flat.

The black-and-white theme wasn’t incorporated in the best way, but it did challenge the cast to break out of their cliched characters, which was exciting for everyone.

Performing Act - Dynasty Season 3 Episode 13

Liam got his time in the spotlight as his character, Leland, was the protagonist of the story and led the mystery of the missing peach diamond.

Fallon’s character, Veronica Cabot, stayed mostly the same, though, it did allow Liz Gillies to show off her impeccable vocals. We’ll never complain about that.

Anders and Blake switched places as Sanders and Blaine, and it was a joy to see Grant Snow take on the role of the “help.” The role of Blake comes so naturally to him, but here, he was forced to flex his acting bone.

And honestly, Adam in a dress, well, there are very few scenarios where that could’ve made sense. Sadly, this wasn’t one of those moments, but we’ll let it slide.

The noir angle was enjoyable only to the true fans of Dynasty and those who figured out that this was all part of Liam’s very elaborate plan to propose. In a way, it was a dramatized version of their love story sans the ending.

Somehow, I read Liam’s mind and figured it out early on because Liam and Fallon would be the couple that tries to out-propose each other.

Also, Fallon initiated the first go-around, so it’s only fair that the fandom gets a proper romantic moment between the lovebirds. The Falliam fandom has been waiting for this, and you have to give the people what they want if you stand any chance at boosting those ratings.

I wouldn’t have been opposed to Fallon popping the question either as it would have been very modern, and Fallon is the modern woman.

While I had an inkling the proposal was going to happen, it didn’t take away from how incredibly cute the moment was.

What did throw me off was how quickly they were back in Atlanta following the engagement.

Sure, they have a private jet and all, but the flight to London is at least 8 hours, so why wouldn’t they want to stay there a bit?

It’s also concerning that Fallon went to Europe and didn’t stop to visit her brother, Steven. The actor may be off the show, but it could have been an off-screen meeting that was mentioned when they returned home.

Why does no one care about him anymore?

Dynasty Review – Fallon Gets In the Streaming Business (3×10)

Dynasty a Wound That May Never Heal Review

Fallon is spiraling on Dynasty Season 3 Episode 11, and it’s not a good look on her.

Despite all the progress that she’s made these past few seasons, Fallon always finds herself back at square one: wanting to get out of Blake Carrington’s shadow.

Their back-and-forth tussle between the father and daughter is reminiscent of Dynasty Season 1, but it’s pointless drama that doesn’t do either of the character’s any favors.

Expanding Her Empire - Dynasty

There’s no reason that Fallon cannot be independently successful. They can both exist in the same orbit without any sticking their noses into each other’s business. The world is big enough for them both.

Hopefully, the realization she had thanks to Culhane will finally stick because, at this point, her character seems to be regressing rather than continuing on a trajectory of female empowerment that we’ve come to know her for.

Fallon has always had potential, but she botches nearly every plan she’s ever had.

They all tend to go up in flames — her plan of going international quite literally — and yet she keeps trying.

On one hand, her drive and ambition are admirable, but on the other, it would be so much more effective if she just picked a lane and stayed in it.

Home Cooked Meal  - Dynasty Season 3 Episode 11

From publishing company to magazine to streaming service, she wants to do everything and thus, she does nothing.

The comments about her streaming service, while hilarious, echoed those thoughts exactly.

No one even knows what she does anymore because she can’t stick to anything. If she keeps this up, she really will be the “forgotten Carrington.”

On Dynasty Season 3 Episode 10, Fallon started the episode by throwing things, and this time, Blake followed suit even though it turned out to be a nightmare. (I was about to question how many glasses this family went through a week!)

Blake poured so much of himself into rebuilding his image and getting control back, and yet, he didn’t recognize that he was acting out to ignore the real problem.

He was running away from the anger and resentment he felt towards Alexis.

The Parent Trap  - Dynasty Season 3 Episode 11

Buying up companies left and right was his way of repressing his emotions and pretending the problem didn’t exist rather than facing it head-on.

He wanted Cristal to let her anger go, but he failed to notice he had so much of it pent up inside that it was manifesting as nightmares.

However, the nightmares also served as a premonition. The moment Blake realized he needed to get back to his legacy at Carrington Atlantic, it was revealed that Alexis and Jeff Colby were one step ahead of him.

In this regard, the series is returning to its roots and hopefully, to the storylines that enthralled audiences.

The empire that Blake built seems like the right investment if they want to stick him where it hurts, and it’s going to be one hell of a fight now that they’ve already set the stage for the acquisition.

Since Alexis and Jeff announced their marriage, fans have been trying to figure out what their game-plan is and slowly, it’s coming together.

Dynasty Review – Saving Kirby from a Cult (3×10)

Published

Dynasty What Sorrows Are You Drowning Review

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.
