‘Dynasty’ Season Two Finale: Double-Cross Upon Double-Cross; Two Bodies Dredged From The Water, Another Goes Into The Pool

On Friday night’s CW Dynasty season two finale, in true “soap opera on steroid” fashion; you needed a scorecard to check who was zoomin’ who! There was plenty of backstabbing, murderous intent, deceit and more, culminating in the re-wedding of Blake (Grant Show) and Cristal (Ana Brenda Contreras) with the lake and a pool set as a major backdrop on how viewers will be left wanting to know the outcome in this juicy cliffhanger.  But alas, folks! You will have to wait for the series upcoming third season to get all the answers.

And we just got to say, Elizabeth Gilles (Fallon) is a gem and the show would not be the same without her, but here’s how things were left for the Carringtons and company as we fade to black on the climatic final moments.

Sicko bad boy, Adam (Sam Underwood) has serious anger management issues.  When Jeff Colby (Sam Adegoke) learns the news that he has neurological disease, caused by the poison he ingested thanks to Adam, and that he will die, he puts a plan in motion.  He stages his own death. We believe Adam killed him, but in actuality it is revealed he was in cahoots with Dominique (Michael Michele).  After we see the flashback (as Jeff is heading to the Bahamas with the secret that he is dying), he knows they have Adam’s cuff-link planted at the scene of the crime that will do him in.  He says goodbye to his mother and sister and boards a plane.  But then, Dominique shows us that she went back and grabbed Adam’s cuff-link and is in cahoots with Blake.  She threw her own son under the bus!

Liam (Adam Huber) and Fallon have gotten oh-so-close, but not before Adam plants a letter on Fallon’s desk that Liam fathered a child … and later Fallon comes clean that during a drunken high school binge with a friend, the two got in an argument and the girl fell down a flight of stairs and the family covered it up.  Adam overheard the whole thing.  Next, Liam and Fallon go to the water in a row boat where Fallon proposes to him, with a valuable family ring from Liam’s family.  After Liam accepts the proposal, they make-out and the ring drops into the water.  Later, when Liam confronts Adam about the letter he knows he left for Fallon; Adam clubs Liam in the head and locks him up just outside the pool at the mansion.  Liam was about to expose Adam for all his lies and crimes.

Later, a shocked Fallon sees that her father and Cristal are getting re-married and their counter attack on Culhane (Robert Christopher Riley) has worked.  Culhane is being arrested by the feds.  Fallon sold her company to Kirby (Maddison Brown) for $1 dollar to help reunite with her father in business, but since her father double-crossed her, she tells Kirby she wants her business back.  Kirby says she is not selling it back, because she tried to get Culhane to break up with her. Then, Blake demands Anders (Alan Dale) marry him and Cristal now, but Anders refuses.  He already made a deal with Sammy Jo (Rafael de La Fuente) to help run the hotel and is leaving Blake’s employ following his recent hospital stay and health scare.

All of a sudden, the divers who Adam hired to locate the MIA engagement ring, find two bodies in the water. Blake mutters that he knows who one of them is. Adam flashes back to a scene with Steven (James MacKay), where Steven tells him how the young girl’s death was covered up.  And yup, it was revealed that one of the bodies was the young girl that Fallon got into the drunken altercation with all those years ago.  The second boy has not been ID’d yet.  This is juxtaposed with Liam, who has made it out of lock-up by the pool.  He screams “Fallon” but he is so disoriented that he eventually falls into the pool face first, and all we can assume is that he has drowned.  But, will he be rescued?  Who will the second body turn out to be that was found in the lake? And … when will Adam and Alexis (Elizabeth Gilles) put their plan into motion? When we last saw Alexis a few episodes ago, we saw that she has a brand new face, identical to that of Fallon’s!  Stay tuned.

Well, it really was full of shockers but the only one (or two) that I really care about is Liam in the pool. (He better not die or I’ll spit nails!) and Andres helping Sam with the hotel.

I’m REALLY enjoying this reboot. The first season started off a bit wonky but picked up-sort of- in the season finale. But season two dialed up the camp and drama from 0-60. The addition of Sam Underwood as Adam was brilliant. Bald, sexy, obviously bi-sexual, and psycho as Hell. Obviously, for some odd reason, the writers really stumbled changing major characters gender and ethnicity. That’s a good idea. Now how do we write for them? SMH. As for the finale I think Liam will be temporarily amnesiac and blind-that constant ear ringing and blurry vision. It will be fun watching Adam terrorize him lol. Blake fiercely whispering to crystal-“I’m only responsible for one those bodies ” -as they dragged his lake was hilarious. Dumb as a box of rocks Fallon deserved to lose Femperial after selling it to Kirby for one dollar. I almost, for a second, expected Kirby to proudly stand by Fallon. I’m glad she didn’t. As for season 3. It would have been nice to see Nicollete’s Alexis take revenge on that evil so and so Adam for pushing her face into a burning fireplace. I felt for her after that. But looking forward to Nu-Alexis doing that. Also hoping a vengeful Steven returns to knock six bells out of Adam for drugging him into dementia and a psych ward.Too bad Nu-Alexis can’t be Heather Locklear, but her life is a hot mess right now. Maybe Marcia Cross. They also need a good female enemy for Michael Michelle’s Dominique. For the life of me I can’t understand why she never interacted with the Carringtons until the end of season 2, and only then with Blake. Big misstep. Monica is no match for her mother as a sparring partner. And the father just disappears for episodes on end. And poor Jeff Colby. He didn’t stand a chance against Adam. Or Dominique. His own revenge plan being used against him lol. Still I’m excited for season 3. Bring it on.

Oh. And loving stuffy Anders. Brilliantly played by a popular Australian soap actor from Neighbours. He makes campy useless Sammy Jo make sense. Otherwise. Big character fail. And that’s on the show AND the actor.

The 2nd body is that guy that Blake killed when trying to find out who shot the gun that made Crystal miscarry….we know it was Alexis, but he thought it was his hired goon

Have you ever watched the show before this episode? The other body is the private detective that Alexis framed for killing Mark that Blake beat to death and then dumped in that very lake. It isn’t a mystery.
Also Cristal and Blake have never been married before.

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

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.

In exciting casting news for Dynasty fans, the series has cast the key role of Dominique Deveraux on the CW reboot of the classic soap.   The part was played by  Diahann Carroll (pictured below) in the ABC version of the series.

Michael Michele known for her run on Queen Sugar as Darlene and on Fox’s Star as Ayanna has landed the promo role.

According to TV Line, look for Dominique to appear on-screen before the series ends its current second season.  Discussions are already being had if Michael could very well become a series regular for season three.

Dominique will return to Atlanta after a long stint in New York City where she spent the past several years seeking fame and adulation… to no avail.  Now Dominique is home to reconnect with her estranged children, but does she really want to be part of their lives, or will she just disappoint them all over again? And what will the Carringtons have to say about her sudden, mysterious return?”
