DYNASTY Season Finale: Burning Down The House!

Any soap opera lover should have been drooling over the season finale of CW’s Dynasty. Filled with every signature staple of the genre, and delivered in delicious fashion, the episode left us hungry for what’s in store for when the series returns for its second season.

The season finale was filled with multiple takeovers of Carrington Atlantic, one coup led by Fallon (Elizabeth Gilles) and another by their newest relative, Jeff Colby (Sam Adegoke) and yet there was another one going on with Alexis (Nicollette Sheridan) using Hank (Brent Antonello) to play the long lost son, while he voted later against Blake (Grant Show), Steven and Fallon. You need a scorecard to follow this, yet the double-cross of a double-cross was fun to watch.

The centerpiece of the episode was Steven (James Mackay) and Sammy Jo’s (Rafael de la Fuente) wedding filled with unexpected guests and shockers, chief among them a visit by soap vet Kelly Rutherford, who plays Melissa Daniels. As his wedding is about to start, Melissa shows up to tell Steven that she is pregnant with his child.

Elsewhere, when Cristal (Nathalie Kelly) who has already had it with Blake and feels trapped in a marriage to him, or is she really feeling that or enjoying the cat and mouse power game, figures out that Alexis has been sleeping with Hank, angling this whole takeover from her angle. When she confronts Alexis, finally the long-awaited mega catfight on steroids occurs (watch it after the jump) and the two women battle it out, until Alexis locks up Cristal.

When Anders (Alan Dale) finds her there and goes back to get the key, none other than unstable Claudia Blaisdel (Brianna Brown) arrives toting a gun. As she is about to have her long-awaited showdown with her nemesis the image of her former husband the late Matthew Blaisdel (Nick Wechsler) keeps coming up. She sees him in her mind, but she actually shoots Cristal and leaves her there to die.

Anders hears a voice calling to him in the hallway, and it’s none other than another unstable woman, his daughter, Kirby, who Sammy Jo invited to the wedding. Next thing you know, when everyone has a showdown over the dynasty, it is Fallon, Blake, Steven, Sammy Jo and Alexis who are all together when someone from the outside of the hallway starts a fire and lock them in.

As the fire burns down the Carrington estate, characters lives are in jeopardy and one by one as they are rescued, or get to the outside. It is none other than Steven who is left inside, as well as a shot Cristal. Meanwhile, Hank ends up with Claudia, as he tries to steal her car, only to have her get the car started. Will these two make a getaway … or hatch another plan on the Carringtons? We won’t know till next season.

Eliza Bennett Cast as Amanda Carrington on CW’s Dynasty

In the original ABC classic version of Dynasty, Catherine Oxenberg played this key role, which was also played for a time by Karen Cellini, but now comes word that CW’s reboot of the series is adding back into the mix the character of Amanda Carrington.

This time, the British-Carrington will be played by actress Eliza Bennett (MTV’s Sweet/Vicious). And remember, Amanda is the daughter of Alexis Carrington (Elaine Hendrix).

According to TV Line, Bennett will become a series regular and will debut this season and return for season five of the soap.

The log lines for Amanda’s re-emergence in the story share: “The long-lost Carrington relative, born and raised in Europe, arrives on the Carrington doorstep holding a treasure trove of secrets from their past… and hers,  Amanda is smart, confident, and can hold her own against any Carrington who comes at her. By day she’s a savvy lawyer, but by night she’s a bit of a party girl. Ashe has no problem stirring up trouble in a family full of troublemakers.”

So, what do you think about NuAmanda? Excited they have had the character back to the canvas of Dynasty? Comment below.

‘Dynasty’ Reveals ‘Who’s In the Casket’ as Original Cast Member Exits

Friday night’s episode of CW’s Dynasty featured the highly-anticipated reveal of which character was being mourned at the funeral in the season-opener flash-forward.

It turned out that original CW series cast member, Alan Dale (Anders) is the one who exited the series, and who’s character died.  And as viewers learned it was not from exactly from an injury to the rib, sustained in trying to protect Fallon (Elizabeth Gillies) and Liam (Adam Huber) from kidnappers that actually did Anders in, but from a car accident and the pain of it his injures on his way to see Cristal (Daniella Alonso) in the hospital that sent him to heaven. Meanwhile, Cristal wasn’t doing too well either, as she was undergoing experimental treatments for a brain tumor.

The red-herring of who was actually in the casket led viewers to believe it could have been Cristal, Liam, or Culhane (Robert Christopher Riley) and earlier in the season many believed it was Sam (Rafael de la Fuente) or Adam (Sam Underwood), but they later appeared in the flash-forwards of the funeral.

Clearly, Fallon is very devastated by the the loss of Anders.  Earlier in the episode Anders told her, “Nothing’s going to happen to you while I can help it. You’re like a daughter to me.”

Fans took to Twitter on Friday sharing their grief of the beloved Alan Dale being killed-off the series as well with numerous sentiments on the reveal.

So, did you guess it was Anders who was in the casket? Sad to know Alan Dale is off Dynasty? Comment below.
