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.

Maddison Brown Joins ‘Dynasty’ As Kirby Anders

Another familiar character to longtime Dynasty fans has been cast for its upcoming second season; that of the very troubled, Kirby Anders.

In the CW reboot, newcomer Maddison Brown has nabbed the role, originally played in the ABC version by Kathleen Beller.

According to EW.com, the character description reads: “Kirby grew up in the staff’s living quarters with her father, estate manager Joseph Anders, and sides more with the downstairs occupants than the upstairs.  She has a fraught history with the Carringtons, specifically a tempestuous relationship with Fallon that was the reason for Kirby’s exile from the Manor years ago.  And while she returns to Atlanta to make amends with her father, she will certainly continue wreaking havoc on the Carringtons.”

Brown is listed as a series regular for the new season.

Dynasty returns with all-new episodes on Friday, October 12th at 8PMEST.

So, what do you think of Kirby being back on the canvas against the Carringtons? Comment below
