‘Dynasty’ Reveals Its Recast For Nicollete Sheridan As Alexis Carrington In Cliffhanger Moment

Courtesy/CW

Talk about a major soapy twist the reminds of some of the best and outrageous classics of the genre!  Friday’s episode of Dynasty offered up a shocker in an episode aptly titled and an oh-so clever one at that, “How Two-Faced Can You Get?”  And, as you watch the installment unfold, you think the “two-faced” in the title is about Fallon (Elizabeth Gilles) and Kirby’s (Maddison Brown) friendship when it comes to a certain man, but that was just the appetizer.

This episode served to reveal who is the replacement for Nicollette Sheridan in the key role of Alexis Carrington.  As viewers know, Sheridan announced her departure from the series to attend to personal family matters.  Dynasty fans last saw Sheridan on the March 22nd episode of the series.

SPOILERS BELOW IF YOU PLAN TO WATCH THE EPISODE BEFORE READING

In story, Adam (Sam Underwood) who is seriously psycho and hell-bent on major revenge has a face-off with his mother, Alexis (then played by Sheridan).  He confronts her and knows she fudged DNA evidence to make it look as if Hank was her true biological son.   Adam walked in on his mother burning the evidence of fake DNA test and interrupts her in the process.  After being caught, she fessed up to what she did … saying she did it all, because she was desperate to get her family back,

Next, Adam tells her to burn the rest of the evidence, and while her back is turned and as she is kneeling in front of the fireplace, Adam pushes her face into the fire.  And that sets the stage for the reveal of the new actress set to play Alexis, since Alexis has to undergo extensive plastic surgery to heal her burns,   We also note on that episode that Adam poisoned his “other” mother with a fatal overdose of her medication, and apparently that mom was a drug addict.

Now on to the final moments of the just aired Friday episode.  We cut to a scene where in the hospital, the bandages are being removed from Alexis’ face.  And we see her exclaim how youthful she looks!  Then, Adam comes by with flowers for his mother, saying he wants to see how she looks.  When she turns around it is revealed that the part is now being played by Elizabeth Gilles who also plays Fallon!  Adam looks very happy!  How twisted!  Looks like these two plotted together to bring down the Carringtons; by changing Alexis’ face to Fallon’s? Stay tuned.

Gilles took to her Twitter account on Saturday and asked the fans, “How’d we feel about last night’s ?”

So, what do you think of  Elizabeth Gilles as the new Alexis, now that it looks like Fallon will have a doppelgänger? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

I think this was a brilliant move despite what others feel. It is so classic soap! I also think this is a storyline move and wouldn’t be overly surprised if this was a temporary casting move until another actress can take over the role.

I, for one, was shocked and am loving the twist of this cliffhanger! It was all kinds of soapy goodness, and I know that Liz Gillies is going to rock this storyline out of the park!

I was surprised and yet, not. Weeks ago Adam gave the plastic surgeon a picture to use as reference when they were taking Alexis out of the room for surgery. It crossed my mind that it might have been Fallons’ picture. Still, seeing out that pulled it off was entertaining.

Not a fan…. The show was a great mix of soap drama and humor. I really enjoyed laughing and routing for Fallon or Alexis.

This plot is bound to fail and make the show a parody more than a dramedy. I was so hoping for a change in actress that wouldn’t be so farcical. Not sure what’s next since most stories are 2-3 episodes as opposed to an entire season.

Laughs will ensue but for a short period

Is this Dynasty or PASSIONS? HOW STUPID. What a dumb plot. This show won’t make it past the 3rd season. Sad. It had potential to be great. And REALLY bad casting of Adam Carrington. He is slimy and wimpy. Steven also gone, and the plot with the REAL Cristal Flores. DUMB AS HELL.
