Yeah, I feel like a Stepford wife!
I know! Of course I could complain, but I'm trying out something new. And I am genuinely looking forward to the season finale next week. Because it's looking like it will be a proper high drama season finale.Oh wow... Would you look at us? All wrapped up in NuDynasty and being genuinely interested and not complaining. Much.
I wanted to believe Liam could be the real Adam, but... what about the finger thing? Liam had ten fingers in his hands if I'm not wrong... or Fallon would have noticed it! He can't be the real Adam anymore.Isn't Liam back this episode? I think Joseph/Anders knows that Adam is still alive and knows it's Liam.
That would be a very good explanation, but she didn't know Liam. She had to find out from someone else that he was a writer and what his full name was.I also wonder if Alexis knows Liam is Adam and that's why she pushed him away so hard. He ruined her plan. Hank chopped off his finger for the plan.
Fallon mentioned Jeff standing her up for prom during the Christmas episode which we now know was done to keep her from her cousin. It's never been revealed if Cristal is in the country legally. Now Blake is blackmailing Cristal with the fact that she used an assumed identity which I assume means she Celia Machado could be deported.The remarkable change in tone in the last third of the season makes me believe the show-runners did not draw up a season-long "Bible" of plotlines and stick to them. The switch seemed to flip right after they received the back-order for the remainder of the season--as if they were suddenly given permission to throw out the plans and cut loose.
I was hoping that "What The Devil?" be an episode title. With of course Alexis all harsh angles, severe hair and an origami, one shouldered dress in blood red. But, oh well.Was this also the first episode that Blake said "what the devil?" (when Michael showed up and disrupted his tycoon-but-family-man reportage).
Before the writers decided to reveal Dominique was Blake's sister, they considered making her Cecil's wife or Kirby's mother. I always thought either of these would be more satisfying than having her be Blake's sister - which also retconned the plot from Blake being a self-made man to having a wealthy father. Millie Colby is both Cesil's wife and Tom Carrington's daughter. I don't think she is Kirby's mother though - that would simply be too much. I don't mind Millie being Tom's daughter this time around as it was established from the beginning that Tom, not Blake, made the family fortune.Anybody else notice that Jeff, and monica's mother's name is Millie?
Dominique Deveraux was not te characters real name in dynasty, her real name was millie Cox, and dominque was her stage name.
And speaking of fortune, where does the Colby fortune come from. I've skipped a few episodes so I don't know what Cesil did for a living, but if they were poor then why did Jeff and Monique hang out with Fallon when they were kids? This is still a little vague to me.I don't mind Millie being Tom's daughter this time around as it was established from the beginning that Tom, not Blake, made the family fortune.
But even Alexis knows that she used to be Celia. The theft is probably the bigger crime.Now Blake is blackmailing Cristal with the fact that she used an assumed identity which I assume means she Celia Machado could be deported
Jeff created a computer software program which he sold for a fortune, prior to that the Colby's didn't have any money. Jeff was working for Blake when he created the program so Blake believed he was entitled to a percentage of the profits as it would have been considered his "intellectual property". The fact that Jeff was put through college by the Carrington's and "betrayed" them by doing this was also a sore spot for Blake.And speaking of fortune, where does the Colby fortune come from?
