I still think they should hire Faye Dunaway as Alexis' mommie dearest. Although she hasn't been seen ever since she got fired from that one woman play for slapping crew members. :fp:

If she were to return to Atlanta on Ben's arm, I think I would actually let out a man-scream. If they were to use him as the Cecil 2.0 (have her 'love him to death' and inherit his money) then Blake and I would both need to be medicated.

I wonder if she (or anyone) will address whether she actually shot/killed Mark Jennings and got that whole ball rolling? We're 90% sure Mack did not actually do the shooting, and unless Alexis did it accidentally, then we have a killer wandering loose. Will they pick up that plot point, given all the other stuff they have to deal with?

What I´d like to know is if this time it was Nicollette the one who slapped some co-star´s a**... (there are many nice ones to choose from, I read here...) and she was kindly shown the door.

The new Alexis can rock the big hat and phone in lounge chair look. That in itself is promising.




She can also look bitchy without too much effort.




She can look like a classy soap bitch disguised as nice.



She can do the "I look this good without effort" effort look.




She gets on well with dogs.




She can rock the "have never done any real work on or in the house" look.




And she looks like Fallexis done surgery to look more Alexis again.

As Nicollette won't be back to Dynasty, I wanted to share my appreciation of this great catfight her character, Alexis, had with Cristal1.0

It was the good old days, before Alexis#3 and Cristal#3, when we still had great expectations towards this stupid show !

I dunno
I mean, I think she is a decent recast as she kind of looks like a cross between Gillies and Sheridan. I have no idea how she actually sounds, but I imagine that they'll just ignore the voice issue (which I think is for the best).

Elaine Hendrix should have been the first choice. She's no big star, just like Joan Collins when she stepped into Alexis stilettos. She's some sort of a "virgin" and doesn't carry iconic bitches skeletons such as Eddie Britt or Paige Matheson or Lucky Santangelo.
Honestly I didn't know her. But I'm french. And a new face for a new Alexis would have been easier to accept ( at least for me) . Everytime I stared as Alexis I saw Eddie... I hope she'll make Alexis her own and won't try ( or be forced) to mimic Nicolette S. OK, Liz G. is perfect at this game, but could we forget about this Fallexis crap, please..?

And this Elaine Hendrix reminds me strongly of Sharon Stone... Something in the smile... The vicious eyebrows...

Let's hope this Alexis will be more a brand new Catherine Tramell and less... a retired Harley Quinn... (No offense, Nicolette... we do put the blame on the writers...)

I imagine that she'll be called to witness at Blake's trial and she'll either enter with a veil or huge sunglasses covering her face (cue Blake groaning how overdramatic Alexis is). I bet this is the episode 9/winter cliffhanger.

I can't think of any classic soap recasts who had to mimic their predecessors….
I think Karen Cellini sort of did try to do a British accent in her first scene as Amanda, but of course gave it up quickly.

We didn't have to suffer this accent change in France. As it was french voiced over.
We had to suffer a voice change (they didn't keep Amanda 1 's voice)
Worst, we had to suffer Karen Cellini's acting.

Actually, Emma Samms claimed that she never watched original Fallon scenes because she didn't want to copy any PSM stuff.

Alexis' absence could reduce the personality-swap-effect, it worked for Alison Carr who replaced the iconic Patricia Hamilton in Sons & Daughters.
And it's not like they care how we feel about the different Cristals, so I don't see why it should be a big deal with Alexis. Sheridan's Alexis is a Dynasty ghost now, she's no longer relevant.

And that was good decision. Anyway, with the material Emma was given, copying Pamela Sue Martin's Fallon would have been quite useless. OG Fallon was a rich spoiled brat. But writers wrote Emma's Fallon as Daddy's Princess... Till season 9 (David Paulsen, I can't thank you enough for season 9 Fallon. And season 9 in general)

I think no-one wants Elaine Hendrix copying Nicollette's Alexis. Alexis needs some kind of reboot. And the writers must absolutely forget the "trailer trash clown" Alexis... Anyway, I'm so excited by Alexis' return perspective. And I just can't hide It

If Alexis was still at the mansion when Trixie died, then having her turn up to testify would be a sound plot point. Up to now I've been under the impression Trixie's accident occurred after Alexis was banished, but I don't recall their saying one way or the other. It would finally (in my mind at least) explain where/why this whole Trixie idea came from, and why it was thrown in seemingly out of nowhere--and why they wrote that Blake disposed of the body rather than getting Anders or another servant to do it. Trixie as the new Ted Dinard. Could all this be....[shudders] planned from the beginning??? If so, my opinion of their ability to map out long-term story projections just expanded exponentially.

In the same vein, however...if they had not been able to recast Alexis by the time this "surprise witness" was planned, they could just as easily have had STEVEN return in time to testify, since he was definitely around when Trixie died. I think having Steven making his shocking return would have been almost as much of a "Hell yeah" moment for the viewers.

Interesting point, is that Steven said to Adam, in a flashback, that his "dad did it"... I thought he was talking about Anders hiding Trixie's body in the lake.
Maybe he was talking about Blake.

I'm very close to getting some interesting gossip from the set thanks to my new Instagram connections. Keep your fingers crossed, my loves.
