Dynasty – New Lady in Town (2×20)

Published

Damn, who would have thought that Culhane’s solo efforts to take down Blake Carrington would be successful.

Culhane was able to achieve something he’s probably dreamt of doing for years on Dynasty Season 2 Episode 20; he outsmarted Blake himself.

Considering it was a do or die situation, Culhane was motivated to succeed, but given how many times Blake’s been one step ahead of everyone, I pegged this as a lost cause.

However, Culhane proved that he’s learned a thing or two while working for the Carringtons.

Cristal fell right into his trap and warned Blake of the FBI’s involvement which pushed him to threaten the Senator who was wearing a wire.

The plan was well executed, and it was oddly satisfying to see Blake get walked out of his own event in cuffs.

Unfortunately, we’d be naive to think that Blake is going to stay incarcerated.

A man with that much money and a plethora of connections will surely find a way out of this somehow.

He can pay off anyone to look the other way.

And when he does, it’s not going to be pretty for Culhane.

Culhane and Blake always had a rough relationship but even so, Blake always offered a helping hand whenever things got tough.

After this, Culhane just ensured himself a spot on the top of Blake’s shit list.

And the feds surely won’t be able to protect Culhane from Adam’s wrath.

Adam has plenty of unresolved mommy and daddy issues; as Fallon figured out, his weak spots are Blake and Alexis.

He’ll protect them at all costs even if that means going after the people who do them wrong.

He’s a ticking time bomb. If you push the wrong button, he’s going to erupt.

Dynasty – Thicker Than Money (2×21)

Dynasty -- "Thicker Than Money" Review

We’re gearing up for yet another battle between the Carringtons and the Colbys, but this one just seems uninspired.

We’ve known that Blake is a shady snake, but on Dynasty Season 2 Episode 21 he proved he’ll do anything to save his own ass.

At least he’s found a partner in crime in Cristal.

If anyone was played by Cristal, it was me.

I wanted to believe that she was gearing up to leave Blake to save her family, and admittedly, felt a pang of disappointment when I realized she willingly turned on Culhane to protect her husband.

Blake deserves everything that’s happening to him but with his rich male mentality, he thinks he’s above all of it.

With Cristal’s help, he swiftly sold Culhane out to the FBI and made them believe Culhane was playing them the whole time.

Blake Carrington playing the victim card, hysterical.

But Culhane also had it coming because he never seems to learn his lesson.

He should have known that getting involved with the Carringtons was a bad idea, that trying to take Blake down was a losing battle, and that moving out of Atlanta was the better choice.

Once the FBI arrests him, his only fighting chance will be Jeff Colby and Dominique.

Colby’s hungry to give Blake a taste of his own medicine but thus far, his efforts haven’t been successful.

Colby and his estranged mom don’t have what it takes to bring him down.

Dynasty This Illness of Mine Review

Is there anything Adam won’t do?

Who won’t he manipulate?

By now, we should expect the worst from Adam.

After all, he pushed his own mother into a blazing fire and ordered the doctors to reconstruct her face to resemble Fallon’s.

But all those things seem minuscule compared to the stunts he pulled on Dynasty Season 2 Episode 19.

Adam is a real threat to everyone in the family — he’ll do anything to destroy them.

For now, the only person that’s been spared from his psychopathic wrath is Blake, though I’m sure that’ll change the moment they no longer see eye-to-eye.

My biggest qualm with the series is that no one is sharing their creepy Adam experiences with each other allowing him to get away with everything he’s done.

Imagine if everyone who has been a target told each other how Adam manipulated them.

They could get him kicked out of the house in no time.

Alexis kickstarted it by telling Fallon that her brother was a real danger, which I thought was evident the moment he shoved her face into the fire.

Why did she leave that part out when telling Fallon about her facial surgery? Why did she try to rationalize Adam’s actions?

Alexis’ admissions only added on to Adam’s creepy factor.

Fallon also found out that Adam was responsible for leaking the photo of her and Liam kissing at the masquerade ball to TMZ.

In addition, she also realized he was hooking up with Liam’s mother.

Gross, right?

I was perplexed watching that scene.

I probably should have seen it coming, but I didn’t.

Fallon is skilled at enacting revenge, but Alexis is right, she’s going to need to play this one very carefully.

It seems she’s taking the “keep your friends close, keep your enemies closer” approach, which is smart, but also dangerous.

I’m interested in seeing this play out, but I’m hoping it ends with Fallon sending Adam with his bags packed.

I know the character is meant to be hated but man, I cannot stand him.

His antics aren’t entertaining because they are completely unnecessary and are poorly executed.

Dynasty Life is a Masquerade Party Review

The Carrington family will throw a party for just about anything.

On Dynasty Season 2 Episode 18, Sammy decided that to get over Steven, he needed to throw himself a “coming out” as a single man party.

Per usual, the party served as the event where everything major happened.

Fallon got the guy after a lengthy cat and mouse game, Blake finally met his father-in-law, and Alexis debuted her new, terrifying face.

I’ll start with Fallon because she almost sabotaged herself again by bringing Liam and Ashley back together.

While Fallon’s decision to bring Ashley back into Liam’s life made sense in terms of pre-sales, Sammy phrased it the best: what did she think was going to happen?

Ashley only agreed to help out Liam because she was hoping for a reconciliation.

Also, I couldn’t help but laugh out loud when they said she was the Meghan Markle of the Upper East Side.

That woman doesn’t hold a candle to Meghan Markle.

Fallon’s inability to be honest about her feelings almost ruined her second chance at a relationship with Liam.

He even gave her so many attempts at being honest; he urged her to just tell him how she feels and she still hid behind her “boss lady” persona.

If it wasn’t for Sammy knocking some sense into her, I don’t think she’d muster up the courage to just be honest with Liam about her feelings.

We’re all afraid of getting hurt, but she’s hurt Liam plenty of times in an attempt to protect herself.

They both owed each other the truth.

But boy, was I happy to hear them finally say the ‘L’ word.

It’s about time!

Unfortunately, following your heart comes at a cost.

Liam and Fallon may have gotten their happy ending after a bumpy road, but Adam is gearing up to ruin Fallon’s publishing company and the success of Liam’s book.
