    I honestly can't remember what Melissa's marital situation is. I know she was (is?) married to some local politico (played by Ric Hearst, who played Ric Lansing on General Hospital). There was some kind of scandal that may or may not have caused them to break up (he might even be in jail--I wasn't paying close attention). If they're still married, it might be a situation where Melissa will continue with her husband, tell him it's his baby, and just keep the paternity of the baby secret for as long as she can. If the husband is totally out of the picture, then I guess all bets are off.

    I would hope an otherwise intelligent, modern woman like Melissa would not go off into "Oh, he says he's gay, but I can fix that!" territory, because that would just be demented (not to mention insulting to everyone involved) at this point.

    I *hope* not. That would just bother me so much... plus it wouldn't really be true to Steven's character, since he *was* going to tell Sam right before Fallon interrupted. Although... Steven could end up in a coma or maybe be kept in the hospital to undergo treatment for his burns, and Melissa arrives at the hospital, concerned for her "baby's father" - saying that right in front of Sam. Sam decides to test Steven to see how long it takes him to tell Sam the truth... but thankfully Steven passes when he just comes out and tells him.

    I *hope* Cristal doesn't die. Its too soon to let her go. She can't go until the show gets a 9th season. Its the law.

    Melissa doesn't have to do anything, there's a baby coming and that's the problem. Steven wants to be there for the mother and child, and Sammy Jo feels he's the third wheel.
    Marriage on the rocks, etc etc.

    Let's hope they come up with something less obvious.

    It's kinda horrible, but what if Claudia's baby dies? And then suddenly there's Melissa's baby...or they could do it the other way round: Melissa miscarries and sees her connection with the Carringtons go up in a puff of smoke.
    She decides to fake the remaining time of the pregnancy and then either steal or buy Claudia's baby.

    It almost seems like a missed opportunity not to intertwine these two pregnancies.

    Another scenario: regardless of who's going to take whose baby, it ends up being adopted by Blake & Cristal. If it's Melissa's baby then Steven can still be part of the child's upbringing.
    That may cause some dramatic disagreements, but hey, it's a drama series. Oh, and then the baby gets kidnapped anyway:D and once it's being returned to the Carringtons, Cristal and Steven decide to put their petty differences aside (this could be done in a very emotional scene).
    In the meantime, Alexis is feeling completely excluded from all this and plots a scheme to do...well I'm sure they could think of something.

    Which makes my idea even better than I thought it was: a fresh take on a classic Dynasty storyline:)

    I can see someone in the Carrington mansion ending up with Claudia's baby one way or the other. It's the most logical way of keeping Claudia in their lives if the show wants to continue having her pop up to make trouble. If they kill her off, or at least she is presumed dead, they might write a situation where an oblivious Sam suggests he and Steven adopt the orphaned baby, with Steven making those "Oh, $#it" grimaces behind everyone's backs because he hasn't told anyone about Melissa. While Steven wants to make Sam happy, he isn't keen on fatherhood from any angle, and it looks as if he's being forced into it from two directions. If the story evolves into Blake and Cristal adopting the baby, we'd still have Melissa's bundle of joy waiting in the wings to cause trouble for the newlyweds.

    I'd like to see Blake and Cristal trying to adopt Claudia's baby but somehow <insert unexpected plot> it doesn't work out.
    Guess who's going to show up with that very same baby some days later?

    I always wondered what Peggy Bundy would have been like while raising baby Kelly and baby Bud. This Alexis with a newborn would be my chance to see it. The baby would have to learn to change his own diapers.

    My impression of the whole Paul/Melissa situation is that the whole story about Paul cheating on his wife and the aftermath of the casino party incident did some huge irreversible damage to their marriage and now they're basically separated/possibly on the brink of divorce. That's why we haven't seen Paul and we've seen only Melissa, (also probably because Rick Hearst is probably way too expensive to keep for more than one episode for the budget that the CW has).

    Honestly I'm praying that Melissa's baby lives so that Steven and Sam will get to have a baby of their own especially since Steven will have legal rights to his child as its biological father anyway. Otherwise if they attempt to go to an adoption agency to build their family themselves, there's a very good chance that they might be turned down just because they're a gay couple, (and if I recall correctly I believe Georgia just passed a law not too long ago where adoption agencies have the right to deny gay couples the right to adopt kids).

    As for Claudia's baby, I'm still not entirely convinced that he or she will ever get to be born, (and I can't really see Claudia raising the baby with Hank especially with her serious mental health issues unless they get new identities and go on the lam or something), and I think this also hinges on whether or not Cristal survives. If Cristal is really gone, I also can't see Blake raising Claudia's baby by himself and I also can't see Fallon raising a baby at this point anyway. And I also can't see Sam & Steven raise two babies at the same time, especially since they have just gotten married. That's way too much too soon.

    In the event that Michael does die, I really hope Dynasty does not fast track Liam & Fallon into a relationship too quickly and basically make Fallon forget all about Michael automatically in just a few episodes so that they could attempt to shove this pairing into our faces. Honestly, this whole arc with Liam has been extremely disappointing so far and not at all what I expected.

    I'm still pretty peeved that they had Liam "fall" for Fallon so quickly when he barely even knows her as a person, and it's even worse when - at least for the moment - Fallon doesn't even appear to share his feelings. Not to mention that Liam as a character has a pretty hollow shell of a personality and all he has going for him so far is that he's just this generic, good-looking nice guy. It probably would've been more interesting if he was actually pretending to be nice when in reality he's a horrible, evil creep like Peter DeVilbis. At least I'll feel something for him besides vague dislike and apathy.

    And before I forget, didn't Fallon threaten to sue the living daylights out of Liam and basically take him for everything he had if he actually decided to go through with publishing the manuscript? She was extremely livid with Liam, not to mention brokenhearted that he deceived her the way he did. I don't care what his "reasons" were. They'll never make me forget seeing the look on Fallon's face when she was in the study hugging her dog Bo, looking so hurt and destroyed. Any guy that would hurt Fallon that way in my opinion doesn't deserve her at all. I don't care if it's Liam or Michael. Neither of them deserves her, Michael for rejecting her again and again and being an idiotic jerk in general and Liam for being a deceitful liar and not owning up to his past when he could've.

    Liam just seems way too good to be true for me anyway and part of me is kind of afraid to get attached to him because somewhere along the line the writers are going to do a 180 and Liam will not only turn out to be a monster but he'll end up hurting Fallon just like everyone else in her life has done or Fallon will inevitably do something that will make her lose his love and affection completely just like with Michael. Seriously this is like Star/Tom/Marco/Jackie from Star Versus The Forces Of Evil except ten times worse.

    Honestly, I just don't like Liam and I feel like the writers have botched up the execution of his character way too much to the point where I can't even possibly like or get invested in his character even if he had a viable backstory. I really don't want to deal with the romantic subplots for season 2. I feel way too burned out at this point. All I'm looking forward to at this point is the whole Melissa baby story and also the rivalry with Fallon/Kirby.

    And that would be the good part, in case she decides to hire Kirby as baby Adam's nurse/nanny.

    All these theories are based on the presumption that Cristal is barren or has become barren because Claudia shot her in the stomach (do babies grow in the stomach?).
    Well let's say that's true and they want to adopt Claudia's baby (of all babies!), but how do you think Blake feels about that? He'd be raising Matthew Blaisdel's child and I think the last thing he wants to do is to reunite his wife with anything or anyone who's related to his former enemy.
    "Oh...I think he's got Matthew's eyes!" Err, no, that's not going to work.
    Because she's sparkly, fierce and sexy?
    Fallon is a ruthless, inconsiderate bitch who tramples on everything and everyone. She deserves to suffer every now and then.

    IIRC, it seemed Crystle was shot in the lower part of her abdomen so I guess the bullet/bullet fragments could've gone in one of her vital reproductive organs (uterus/ovaries whatever).

    We can only hope that with Blake's millions, he can find a doctor to administer proper lemon aid.

    I don't think Fallon and Blake punching each other would be a good idea... maybe slapping each other, they could get away with, but them giving each other black eyes might be a bit too much.

    However, when Liz talks about wanting to tussle with "one of the boys", I root for Fallon and Sam reenacting the Season 9 fight between Emma Samms and Heather Locklear! :D Only they aren't fighting over Jeff. Yeurgh.
