    I suggest Gale Harold ("Queer As Folk" and "Desperate Housewives") as Blake's troublesome younger brother.

    Anybody who's dedicated to making Blake's life absolutely miserable is fine by me. He deserves it and he should not get away with playing his part in Old!Cristal's death.

    What part? Alexis locked her in the room, and Claudia was the one who shot her. True, Blake was awful for forcing her to stay married to him (among other things), but he did decide to let her go after the wedding. Which is tragic, all things considered. But Blake didn't have any part in her death. You could argue it was him forcing her to stick around resulted in her being at the wedding, but she probably still would have been there anyway, considering that her own nephew, the only family she had left, was the one getting married.

    Really, the only one to blame for Cristal's death is Claudia. Even if Alexis played a part, all she did was lock Cristal in a room in order to keep her from ratting her out. Judging by how Alexis risked her own life to save Cristal from the fire, its safe to assume Alexis never wanted her dead. So had she known about a crazed gunwoman running around, she probably would have took different steps to keep Cristal safe.

    Not so. If the decision had already been made Nathalie Kelley was not to return for Season 2 then there isn't any real reason for Alexis to go running up the stairs to save fake Cristal. I'm guessing the writers/producers were attempting to trick us and the big reveal would be fake Cristal is actually dead. Problem was, the producers weren't banking on Nathalie to let the cat out of the bag.

    Sure there is: character development. For the most part, Alexis was a one-sided caricature, but her trying to rescue Cristal shows there's more to her than what we first thought; so maybe we can dare to hope that there'll be some interesting things for her to do next year.

    If the show had any intention to bring Ben into the mix any time soon, I believe they would have mentioned him (or at least name-checked him) during the reading of Tom's will. (I don't recall their mentioning him or even alluding to his existence) Obviously they could bring him in later on (and say he's still ticked off that 'daddy' didn't leave him anything in the will), but this writing team seems to let us know when people are going to show up some time soon.

    That said, I think it would be preferable for him to be the one Alexis had an affair with, the one that led to her banishment and (apparently) the reason no one even mentions his existence around Blake. Heck, they might find his body at the bottom of Lake Lanier!
