    - For me the cliffhanger of S6 changed the universe, too. Alexis and the evil horde living in the mansion, taking over DC ...

    - Visiting somebody for a 3 minute talk which makes 30% of a tv show makes no sense in reality, too ... but that´s the way it is ...

    2017 I think (unless it is 2016)
    Of course you are right, but sadly the same team that took Dynasty from the bottom of top 20 back to top 5 in season 6B, decided to go back to doing nothing, and mishandle what could have been a Dynasty rebirth. 11 episodes after that episode, the Carrington universe was back to the way it had always been. In a not-so-rare case of twisting facts, Esther Shapiro had claimed that Dynasty's ratings plummeted as soon as Alexis moved to the mansion, and that viewers did not want to see "the good guys lose." But of course the problem was anything but that reversal--it was how the reversal was handled (poorly) and how the storylines surrounding it played out (like badly rehearsed high school theatre).

    Yes. Perverse, as in so many instances.

    Poor Esther......she truly is mental.......ratings plummeted because of sh.tty writing, period. Dynasty was a shell of its former self when Season 07 premiered....but by 7B, it became even worse. I don’t think she’ll ever take responsibility for it or even acknowledge that it was her doing.....

    She is the one who told Joan Collins, "You're not Alexis Colby, *I* am!"

    And like JC retorted, 'She'll have to lose a few pounds! Sorry, Esther!'
