Original ‘Dynasty’ Virtual Reunion On Tap to Help Long COVID Research

Former Dynasty star, Emms Samms (Ex-Fallon), who has been open about her battle with long Covid-19 (after contracting the virus back in 2020), has organized along with Coastal Entertainment, a very special virtual get-together.

Samms had brought together many of  her former co-stars from the original ABC version of Dynasty.

The upcoming virtual event will help mark Dynasty’s 40th anniversary and help those in need to raise money for Long Covid research.


Scheduled to participate in the virtual event along with Samms are: Heather Locklear, Gordon Thomson, John James, Jack Coleman, Stephanie Beacham, Catherine Oxenberg, Maxwell Caufield, Terri Garber and Ray Abruzzo.  BBC Radio’s Scott Mills will host.

Circle Saturday March 20th at 12pm EST with tickets going on sale today.

General Hospital fans know that recently Samms appeared on the ABC daytime drama back in her role of Holly Sutton, when the character was revealed to be alive and well, and being held captive.  That story is still unresolved and viewers wait to see how and when it might return on-air.

So, what do you think of this Dynasty reunion? Comment below.

Well, this came out of the blue! And for this Dynasty (original series) fan, I am ecstatic and will be watching! Great cause as well.

What about Joan Collins, Linda Evans and Michael Nader?

I would love to see these actors, too, Anne!

Hello, Jamesj75, glad to read you again! I also adored DYNASTY on its first run and have rewatched it several times on DVD. I know Pamela Sue Martin probably doesn’t want to revisit the show, but she was so much better as Fallon than Ms. Samms (not really Emma’s fault…just miscasting). I’d also miss Pamela Bellwood as Claudia, my favorite character, and the late great Diahann Carroll. But…any DYNASTY is better than none. I still miss KNOTS LANDING, too. Can you believe only two seasons of KNOTS exist on DVD? What’s up with that? With all the crapola shows already available? Who decides these things?

Hello Soaphound! Great to read you as well! Right off the bat: Claudia (Pamela Bellwood) was also, far and away, my favorite character! Beyond that, I was Team Krystle, though I appreciated Alexis, especially when she was dismissive of someone, which happened a lot! I liked Pamela Sue Martin as well as Emma Samms. When I think of Emma Samms in the role, my mind immediately goes to her ending on The Colbys, as she was whisked away in a spaceship… They don’t make ’em like that anymore!

As for the lack of Knots Landing seasons on DVD, it’s a shame. There seems to be no rhyme or reason for those decisions.

Finally, please keep this secret just between us: I hosted a Dynasty viewing party during its (and my) heyday! 🙂

Take care, Friend!

I agree, Jamesj75, and I think Linda Evans’ work on the show was underrated. It takes a lot of thought and discipline to “underplay” among so many scenery chewers. Some of her looks of frustration and bewilderment remain with me still. Not taking anything away from the divine Joan. If you haven’t read it yet, Joan’s second memoir, “Second Act”, is a terrific book and has LOTS of DYNASTY dish, some very honest.

Yes, yes and yes, but oh, those shoulder pads!

Oh Violet! Those shoulder pads must have had their own trailer and parking space. Who knew they’d stay in vogue so long? That and big hair. The 80s were certainly unique.

Thank you for your reply, Soaphound. And thank you for clarifying a great reason to have rooted for Linda Evans’ character. Regarding Joan Collins, I really should buy that book! Finally, I did see some words of wisdom from you in another thread — always appreciated.

Would never be the same without John Forsythe, Joan Collins and Linda Evans.

Would never be the same without John Forsythe, Linda Evans and Joan Collins. I don’t care for the 2nd time around re-dos. It is not the same, like just watching a new show. They tried it a while back with B.H 90210, and it was a flop. Try doing a new Cheers for instance without the originals, I know I wouldn’t enjoy it.

I’m with you, Violet. Classics should be left alone, whether TV or films. I’m so relieved that Streisand and Redford never sequeled THE WAY WE WERE. I say find a new idea or, if you’re going to repackage the same plot, have enough pride to NOT link it to a previous movie.


Elizabeth Gillies First Post-‘Dynasty’ Role Revealed; GH Alum Bryan Craig Also In Cast

Now that the CW’s Dynasty has come to its conclusion after five seasons, many have wondered what series star Elizabeth Gillies (ex-Fallon) will be seen in next.  Part of the answer was revealed today in casting news via Deadline.

Gillies will star and is the co-executive producer of a new Tubi film called Spread.  In it, Liz will take on the role of  ambitious and aspiring journalist, who lands a temp job at an adult magazine run by an aging industry king played by Harvey Keitel.  The character must reconcile her idealism as she strives to help the company succeed.

Spread is written by Buffy Charlet, who is another of the films Co-EP’s, and is inspired by Charlet’s real-life experience as a temp at Hustler magazine who rose in the ranks to become an editor.

The film also stars two-time Daytime Emmy winner Bryan Craig (ex-General Hospital, Good Trouble).

Look for Spread to drop on Tubi in 2023.

So, intrigued to see Liz and Bryan in Tubi’s new film, ‘Spread’? Comment below.

DYNASTY Series Finale: A ‘False Face’ Revealed!

After five seasons, the final episode of CW’s Dynasty came to its conclusion on Friday night, but not before it delivered another soapy trope – a use of a prosthetic mask (sound familiar Days of our Lives fans?) to hide someone’s true identify.

Here’s what went down: After majordomo Graham (Dan Amboyer) had kidnapped Adam (Sam Underwood), in a shocker, Graham peels off his face! Yup, it was a prosthetic mask and reveals himself to be none other than Steven Carrington (James Mackay)!

After being kept away by Adam for years (he had hidden Steven in a sanitarium and then the place burned down), Steven finally figured out it was Adam who was pulling the strings of his disappearance. Next, came an all-out brawl; where instead of an opportunity to inject Adam with a syringe of some sort of concoction as payback, he almost killed his scheming half-brother. However, Steven didn’t want be a murderer, so he let Adam live to see another day, but told Adam to exile himself from the Carringtons and never return.

With that, and now masked again, Graham meets up with Sam (Rafael de La Fuente) at the hotel bar, where he eventually pulls off his mask to reveal himself as Steven. Kudos to de La Fuente in those scenes who gave us all the feels as Sam is reunited with the man he loves.

Still in another heart-tugger, Fallon (Elizabeth Gillies) comes upon a man sitting at the piano at the Carringtons, and when he turns around, she sees its her brother, Steven.  The two, in typical CW Dynasty-style, break into song.  It was touchingly played by series star, Gillies along with Mackay. Elsewhere, Alexis and Blake (Grant Show) are trouncing through a horrific storm trying to find Dex. Ultimately, Alexis (Elaine Hendrix) and Dex (Pej Vahdat) reunite, and when a softened Blake returns home, he and Crystal (Daniella Alonso) vow to stay together and cement it with a kiss.

In addition, Amanda (Eliza Bennett) gets a job offer to return to London from her ex-lover, which puts her relationship with Kirby (Maddison Brown) in question.  Culhane (Robert Christopher Riley) told Sam that he’ll be moving to LA and selling his part of the hotel business they have together before he marries Nina.  Sam doesn’t take that news well and tries to ensure no one else will take Culhane’s half of their business partnership, because he likes working with him so much.  Meanwhile, the surrogate, Stacey Moore (Samantha Massell), delivers Fallon and Liam’s (Adam Huber) baby and they welcome their little girl to the dysfunction of the Carrington clan.


We are onto the final moments via a six-month time jump and the trajectory of the Carringtons and their extended family become known. Sam presides over Culhane’s wedding to Nina (Felisha Terrell), Liam has written children’s books after his baby girl, while Jeff (Sam Adegoke) is setting up ColbyCo’s new headquarters in Africa, specifically, Nigeria. Fallon had decided to rebrand her company Carrington United, much to the delight of her father.  Dominique (Michael Michele) and Alexis are both opening stores right across from each other on Bleecker Street in Manhattan, and it looks as if they will continue their ongoing catfights in the Big Apple. Kirby decides to move to London to be with Amanda.


And … in the ‘payback is a bitch’ column, we see Adam with an English accent working as a veterinarian … taking care of cats! The final moment of the series features a snapshot of the Carringtons during a family photo gathering.

So, what did you think of the season finale of ‘Dynasty’? Let us know in the comment section below. But, first watch a BTS moment with James Mackay and Liz Gillies singing a familiar tune on her Instagram, posted after last night’s finale aired.

TONIGHT: ‘Dynasty’ Concludes With Its Series Finale

After five seasons, CW’s reboot of ABC’s 80’s primetime soap, Dynasty, will airs its final episode tonight on Friday, September 16th (9pm ET/8pm CT).

Before its goes off the air, in story, look for: a new majordomo beginning to work at the manor who piques the interest of the Carringtons, while Blake (Grant Show) and Cristal (Daniella Alonso) disagree on how to handle recent events at PPA, causing more strain between the two. The unlikely duo of Blake and Alexis (Elaine Hendrix) go on a search and rescue mission.

Elsewhere, Fallon (Elizabeth Gillies) and Liam (Adam Huber) run through a practice labor and delivery. Jeff (Sam Adegoke) is put in a precarious position, one that could potentially change his future radically. Fallon is challenged by the FSN board and Dominique (Michael Michele) offers to help. Sam (Rafael de la Fuente) does not accept Culhane’s (Robert C. Riley) business choices and tries to sabotage Culhane’s plan. Amanda (Eliza Bennett) is presented an amazing opportunity which leaves Kirby (Maddison Brown) questioning the future, while Adam (Sam Underwood) can’t seem to scheme his way out of his new mess.

For those who did not catch the 5th and final season, you are in luck!. The entire season will be available and streaming worldwide on Hulu, beginning on September 24th.

Lead by the incredible performances of Elizabeth Gillies as Fallon, the series just never caught on, or properly promoted by the CW.  However, viewers who did partake in watching the episodes, and stayed with it for five seasons, knew that this was actually a diamond-in-the-rough series or shall we say, a soap on steroids which brought the drama and poked great fun at itself all at the same time.

So, will you be checking out the ‘Dynasty’ series finale tonight? Sad to see it go? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
