    I suppose I could swallow Alexis claiming pregnancy by having her mention how this baby was her "last chance", insinuating that she wouldn't be able to get pregnant again after this.

    You couldn't get Joan to say either one.

    You'd have to trick her. Near the end of the season, you'd have to contrive a pregnancy revelation about another character in a scene with Alexis and Adam, and then use the audio as a wild line in a scene between Blake and Alexis.

    By the time it airs, it'll be too late. Joan will be furious but -- hell! -- she needs the money.


    "Sammy Jo? Pregnant -- again?? Did you actually hear her say, 'Yes, Blake, I'm pregnant... it's true' ?? Don't be mad at me for asking, Adam..."

    What's that outfit she wore, in Season 4 I think, which literally looked like pink and white and blue spirals of candy? Now that derdenverclan is gone, I can't find a shot of it.

    Do you remember which episode it was? Although I do remember another number she wore that makes me think of candy:

    Course not. But I still *know* that Joan is much older than Stephanie, and that affected how I viewed the characters.

    Their bone structure looks so similar in this pic. It's a shame it looks like Stephanie is wearing an off-the-rack prom dress.

    Meh, she pulls it off. Besides, she was wearing that while out clubbing, so I think she be forgiven for slumming. ;) :lol:

    "A love remembered" was a highlight for many fans. In the script Blake should get 2 kiss from Alexis (did Forsythe didn´t want to)? Another thing we didn´t see on tv: Blake in front of the mirror in his hospital room to see how he has aged after Alexis told him it is 1987 ... in the house (in the script a hotel suite) he also looks into a mirror. "Why can´t I remember...?" a pity this parts are missing. This made the whole story more believeable ...
    - but there is also a scene in the script where no kiss was needed but onscreen Joan kissed John ...maybe after a talk with the producers ...

    After Oxenberg was fired and her successor did not arrive well, Amanda should originally disappear by a murder / accident. Here in the script of the episode "a love remebered 2", the story was built up before the idea was rejected later ...

    I never liked the sloppiness with the times frames on Dynasty. Unnecessary sloppy and made no sense at all at times. The frame work is important in TV, and the least you can ask is laying the groundwork with respect. If others didn't the creators definitely should care.

    Blake's mother
    Krystina's age/aging in season 7
    Alexis' and Blake's marriage - the length
    The Roger Grimes business including his strange death at the lake
    Fallon's part in RG:s death
    Blake's father and his wealth, and the Carrington name being "old and respected" (Alexis comes back to this time and time again) in Denver society and history, but at the same time Blake built his fortune/name on his own and rather "quick", and when he is campaigning for governor, he tells to the audience that he grew up poor and often went to bed hungry (as he understands it, the point the angry person in the audience makes).

    Horrible writing and no love at all for the show and the characters. Not to mention the mysterious headaches of Krystle that never go anywhere, like two plots about the same people totally contradicting each other. And when Krystle is sick in season 9, Blake mentions, in the doctor's office, Krystle's supposed medical appointments some year or years earlier due to this "illness" he kept hidden from her. Did Blake in fact talk about Rita's doctoral check ups when she refused to let him near her pants? Why even bring that up, when it's something we, the audience, can't relate to backwards as actual plot line and story? Krystle's last illness was so poorly handled, like we were a bunch of mushroom heads without any sense of time and space.

    I don't remember exactly, but didn't they actually refer to her tumor as a late result of a riding accident when she fell off the horse (in season 2)?

    No, the only result of the accident was the miscarriage. However, during the examination they found problems with her womb that would make carrying any child life-threatening.
    The headaches and possible brain damage appeared in season 7, after the accident caused by a man who accused Blake of killing his wife at La Mirage. It was an out for the show in case Evans did not renew (all primary contracts were up for the middle of season 7). But then they were quickly forgotten. But I think these are what Paulsen used in season 9, and they were a good use of the show's history.
