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 Review – The Sensational Blake Carrington Trial (3×08)
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.

Dynasty – Shoot from the Hip (3×07)
Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful, but if you’re a Carrington, it’s also a time of revenge.
On Dynasty Season 3 Episode 7, that revenge came from Cristal Carrington after she realized she was being played by Adam, again.
Adam and Nadia teamed up to get her out of the picture, literally, in order to convince Blake that Adam was the only family member he could rely on.
But this back-and-forth game of pettiness was expected from Adam and Cristal.
They’ve been going at each other’s throats for weeks now; it brought nothing new to the table.
What wasn’t expected? The revelation that Fallon was paying Nadia to “get close” to Adam.
I had to pick my jaw back up off the floor.
Why did I ever doubt our girl?
Nadia has been suspicious since her arrival, but we’ve all been speculating that she had it out for either Fallon or Cristal.
It never even crossed my mind that she could have been tasked with cozying up to Adam, though, it does explain why she’s so eager to help him out with his deranged plans.
Fallon’s motives aren’t entirely clear yet, but it’s reassuring to know that she’s not always one step behind Adam.
For the longest time, it felt like she was getting consistently played by him when in reality, she’s been playing the long game.
Allowing Adam to believe that his relationship with Nadia happened organically makes it easier for her to manipulate him.
And that’s what she’s been doing since she arrived. It explains why she told Adam that Blake signed over everything in his will to Cristal.
As she said, she’s got him “wrapped around her finger” so whatever she suggests, he’s likely going to follow her lead.
Let’s just hope that Nadia isn’t actually falling for him.
There was a brief moment where Cristal let her guard down and tried to help Adam bake a pie, and it was kind of nice.
If she hadn’t seen him holding hands with Nadia, they probably could have buried the hatchet.
Showing Adam kindness seemed to encourage him to be a better person, at least temporarily.
They could have made a dynamic team if they could’ve put aside their competitive nature.
I doubt it’s possible to rehabilitate someone who pushed his own birth mother into the fireplace, but his blindness is giving him a new perspective.
At the very least, I don’t immediately want to change the channel whenever he’s on-screen. That’s an improvement.
You could smell Sammy’s love interest from a mile away.
It’s so cliche that any male character that gets introduced is immediately going to be Sammy’s squeeze.
Fletcher’s motives seem pure for now, but one can never be too careful on a series filled with backstabbing and drama.
We have to keep Fletcher at arm’s length because it’s not just Sammy who could get hurt, it’s his business, too.
Sammy was able to generate some positive buzz for himself and the hotel by feeding the homeless the most lavish dinner ever.
And it was a solid idea, no doubt.
But apparently, one good idea convinced Anders that he wasn’t needed to help manage the hotel anymore.
From a logical standpoint, this doesn’t make much sense. Sammy still has no idea what he’s doing, but from a storytelling perspective, there’s only so much Anders can do when he’s limited to interactions with Kirby, Sammy, and sometimes Culhane.

Dynasty Review – A Used Up Memory (3×06)
How many shady people can take up residence on a single show?
Well, Dynasty Season 3 Episode 6 proved that the answer is a whole lot and then some.
It’s hard to tell who’s the shadiest at this point. Is it Evan Tate? Is it Adam Carrington? Is it his nurse Nadia?
Is it Dominique? Or is it self-help speaker Joel Turner?
Every single one of these people is working an angle and has a hidden agenda, and quite frankly, it’s becoming a little hard to keep up.
Even Blake Carrington is up to no good, but that’s honestly the least surprising part of the episode.
There were some wholesome parts of Liam and Fallon’s rekindled relationship that balanced out the episode rather nicely.
Liam finally got his memories back and remembered he loved Fallon.
At first, his approach was rather confusing as he invited her to dinner, but then kept insisting he just needed some help remembering.
But by the time Fallon launched her new company, Fallon Unlimited, he was fully himself again and ready to win her back.
He made yet another grand gesture that called back to their divorce party, one of my favorite Fallon episodes, and the one where she first realized the extent of her feelings for him.
Once again, they were in a room surrounded by people, but all they saw was each other.
