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.

Grade It: How Would You Rate Dynasty Season 3?

Dynasty a Wound That May Never Heal Review

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. 

Your Kid Is Here? - Dynasty Season 3 Episode 14

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.”

Baby Momma Drama - Dynasty Season 3 Episode 14

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)

Published

Dynasty Season 3 Finale photos

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. 

Bachelorette Party - Dynasty

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

Dynasty Season 3 Finale photos

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?
