After a lengthy hiatus, Dynasty Season 3 Episode 15 returned with a mediocre episode.
I’ll be honest, the weekly parties have started to lose their pizazz. Even Blake Carrington wasn’t in the mood for one.
It didn’t make sense why Vanessa chose to host her single release party at the Manor instead of at Sammy’s hotel, which would have been great promo for him.
But I guess they needed to emphasize that Dominique and Vanessa are living large now even if no one wants them around.
I’d fall into that same boat as Dominique’s storyline has never felt exciting to me. I thought that Vanessa would at least challenge her mother with her independent and fiery personality, but instead, she was a let down proving that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
The fact that she would stick by her mother, who purposefully slept with her boyfriend and released the sex tape, says everything you need to know about Vanessa.
Unless she’s simply trying to get back at her mother and Culhane at the same time by pretending to be all in. It’s hard to figure out her motives.
For now, it seems as all Vanessa cares about is advancing her career, but is that her ultimate goal?
While Culhane messed up by sleeping with her mother, a part of me feels for him because he continues to be a pawn in everyone’s twisted little game. He can’t get himself out of this toxic lifestyle to save his life.
The whole “wanting to be a Kardashian” reality TV storyline also seems forced and like the little engine that could is running out of ideas.
Though I’ll admit, it was fun to see Sammy working it for the camera.
The only downside is that they’ve reduced Sammy’s character to once again being nothing more than a prop.
The only redeemable part of the episode was Liam and Fallon slowly coming to terms with the idea of being Connor’s parents.
Initially, I didn’t think I’d be a fan of the Connor storyline, but it’s such a joy to watch Fallon tap into her maternal instinct.
She was worried she wouldn’t be a good mother because she didn’t have one growing up, but the fact that her mother also ran away was a bonding moment for her and Connor and allowed her to connect with him.
Fallon knows what constitutes a bad mother and when it comes down to it, that has taught her what kind of mother she doesn’t want to be.
After spending a day with Liam’s kid while he was out looking for Heidi, she went from yelling at Connor for getting mud on her peacoat to accepting that he spilled hot cocoa all over her outfit.
She was enjoying the responsibility of caring for someone other than herself.
So, understandably, when they spotted Heidi at the hotel, Fallon was ready to bring out the claws.
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?
