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.

Grade It: How Would You Rate Dynasty Season 3?
There was no shortage of drama on Dynasty Season 3 with the introduction of Cristal 3.0 and Alexis 2.0.
The season also explored expected soap tropes including amnesia, kidnapping, a long-lost child, and a crazy stalker.
Dull moments are a rarity in the Carrington household, but on the occasion where a storyline falls a bit flat, we ride it out because we know it’s usually followed by jaw-dropping, over-the-top twists that leave us aching for more.
Even after three seasons, the series hasn’t lost its spark as it puts betrayal, manipulation, and jealousy at the forefront of each episode and continues to be a guilty Friday night pleasure.
Let’s break down some of the best, worst, and favorite moments of Dynasty Season 3.
Best Character: Fallon
There is no Dynasty without Fallon. She runs the show, no, scratch that, she carries the show on her back. Liz Gillies was made for the role of Fallon, and as season’s progress, that only becomes more evident.
We look forward to her charismatic approach to any situation, her witty one-liners always infuse the episode with laughter, and we’ve enjoyed watching her grow into a more rooted character through her romance with Liam and her desire to step out of Blake’s shadow.
Worst Character: Cristal
Surprisingly, it’s not Adam Carrington. It’s hard to specify a “worst character” on a show where everyone has an ugly side and they all do terrible things to each other to get ahead.
Blake technically should’ve taken the title considering he got away with murder, cheated on his wife, and then put his business ventures above their relationship when it was already strained, however, it’s expected of him.
Instead, Cristal takes the honor. She plotted to kill Alexis and almost got her brother killed in the process, she tried to become a better person and ended up sleeping with a priest, and she blamed Blake for the breakup of their marriage without acknowledging the role she played in it.
Most Shocking Moment: Cristal sleeping with a priest
It may have been one of Cristal’s lowest moments, but it was also one of the most shocking! Who would have thought that Cristal would get down and dirty with a man of God in the bedroom she shares with her husband, Blake?
She ended things with Father Collins because the guilt was unbearable, but it cannot be the last we’ve seen of him. No one ever goes away that quietly on Dynasty. My perfect twist? She’s pregnant with his child!
Storyline That Was Finally Addressed: Liam’s kid
Fans have been waiting to meet Liam’s child since he was first mentioned a few season’s back. Connor finally made an appearance at the worst possible time following Liam and Fallon’s engagement. They can never just get a moment of happiness to themselves.
After Liam bonded with Connor and Fallon developed a relationship with the child, Heidi came clean and revealed that it wasn’t his kid on Dynasty Season 3 Episode 15. Connor was Liam’s step-brother — a product of Heidi’s love affair with Liam’s father.
Can you say, “dodged a bullet.”
Funniest Storyline: Moldovia kidnapping
The Moldavia kidnapping on Dynasty Season 3 Episode 19 was the most outlandish storyline but that’s what made it so funny. It was also enjoyable to see all the men working together towards a common goal, plus, Sammy was a drugged-out hoot.
The episode kept you on your toes because it wasn’t clear where things were going to go or how they would turn around for Blake and Anders.
The bachelorette party on Dynasty Season 3 Episode 20 would be a close second because it was a blast watching them retrace their steps to figure out what happened while they were blackout drunk.
Best Couple: Liam and Fallon
This one is a no-brainer. The fans love Liam and Fallon and for good reason, the couple has managed to overcome a lot in their relationship.
They may have lost each other there for a moment (and Liam’s amnesia caused him to briefly forget Fallon), but they found their way back to each other and more importantly, fought for each other. Their relationship grows stronger with each episode.
Liam accepts Fallon for who she is and never tries to change her, and she’s never been so vulnerable around anyone else.
We didn’t get the intended finale with their (second) wedding, but we’ll patiently wait until season 4.
Dynasty Season Finale Review – Married a Stripper (3×20)
If you were getting flashbacks from The Hangover while watching Dynasty Season 3 Episode 20, I don’t blame ya.
The episode — which also served as the season finale since coronavirus shut down production before they were able to finish out the season — took a page right out of the Bradley Cooper-led movie swapping Las Vegas for New Orleans.
The “what did we do last night” bachelorette party trope is cliche, but it’s a cliche that works well when you have a group that vibes and plays well off of each other.
Sammy organized a surprise bachelorette party for Fallon that quickly took a wrong turn when they were “roofied” by some herbal potions made by Mistress Delphine. If you’ve ever been to New Orleans, you know those drinks will get the best of you!
The whole night was a blur, and they spent most of the episode retracing their steps and piecing it all together, which was almost as fun as the time Fallon planned a girls trip to stalk Liam and his ex and they got into a bar fight.
This time, however, they got arrested for shoplifting, and Fallon worried that she married a stripper named “Scorpio” because she was mad at Liam for lying to her about his trip to Moldavia.
Fallon may have a bit of a track record for marrying strangers, but it was a relief to find out that this time, it was Sammy who tied the knot in an impromptu wedding.
When Sammy said “Sammy Ho” was coming out to play, he really meant it.
Ryan may have been a drunken mistake, but it seems like Sammy is considering pursuing the relationship. Fallon found long-term love with a man she barely knew, so maybe Sammy will too.
Fallon was more upset with Liam’s choice to rush to Moldavia to save Blake than I imagined she would be.
Her desire to put together a prenup with rules proved Liam’s point about her being over-the-top; Liam didn’t tell her because he didn’t want her to worry and act irrationally, which is what she was doing.
Dynasty Season 3 Finale Photos – Fallon’s Bachelorette Party Gets Wild
Fallon is getting married to Liam… again.
But before she walks down the aisle and exchanges ‘I do’s,’ it’s time for a bachelorette party!
From the photos of the Dynasty season finale, it seems like a wild time as Fallon gets a lap dance from a male dancer.
However, this is the Carrington family we’re talking about so they’re obviously going to get into a wee bit of trouble as Fallon, Sammy, and Cristal are seen talking to security.
Elsewhere, Colby and Alexis are having an intense convo. Is their “arrangement” over now that Colby has a second shot at life?
