Bliss should have developed a serious cocaine habit to block out the memories of what her uncle (Connie's husband) did to her. She would run away from rehab and, surprisingly, kick her drug habit with the help of a bohemian group of friends she meets in the desert.

However things don't go so well and Bliss finds herself in legal trouble due to the actions of her new "family". Jason would spend a considerable amount of money on lawyers and therapists to keep Bliss out of jail. She would then join a quasi-religious organization after falling under the spell of a diminutive, charismatic closeted movie star.

Bliss would marry another member of the organization (another closeted movie star) but eventually leave the group and her husband after she catches him in flagrante with his co-pilot. Bliss would later join a more traditional and conservative religious group and become a tight-ass prude.

Bliss felt like an outsider. She should have included in more scenes with her family instead of living on a love island. Her storyline (a greenpeace gal who dated the nephew of his father's enemy) wasn't bad. It seems that not even übermother Sable cared about Bliss, so why should viewers?

I didn't find Bliss as boring as some people did, she just needed better story lines. Considering she was the Colbys version of Amanda she was actually a lot more interesting than Amanda was, more animated and not just deadpan pretty. She had potential, I just think the writers weren't sure what to do with her.

I just think they put her in as a reserve daughter just in case Tracy Scoggins would quit. That's probably why they had no idea what to do with her - she was literally a "break glass in case of emergency" character.

She looks kinda dirty-sexy French which gives her a bit of an edge in season 1 especially in bed with the unsavoury Spiro.
Unfortunately, Spiro ended up just like our favourite Peter De Vilbis (written out and quickly forgotten before things could get really interesting) and in Team Colby vs. the evil Russians she became more of a standard American soap heiress in distress.

She had a nice bedroom and if I could take one PROP from The Colbys I would pick that tacky neon light fireplace thing and send it as a gift to @Richard Channing.

Lovely.

Although Bliss and Koala had their moments too.

Bliss was a waste of a character. She was like Lucy Ewing and Amanda Carrington. The writers had no idea with to do with her which was a shame.

Bliss should've told her family she was a big fan of Dallas, that would've given her a personality. :)
