    And they could create another mystery if one of the Cristal's dies in the spectacular cliffhanger.
    Maybe the real Cristal will pretend to be Alexis when she's alone with Adam.

    In all this madness there is one underlying issue I have with this Alexis recast. Wouldn't it make sense Alexis will be peeved off with Adam upon her unveiling and spill the beans to the family on who caused her injuries? Alexis may have a new face but her personality will not have changed...hence the scenes in the hospital when she attempted to reach out to Fallon and Jeff. How is Adam going to control Alexis post-op?

    I don't know, but on the other hand... who is really on her side, apart from Jeff and maybe Tony the gardener?

    That's why it is imperative that Steven return, so he can corroborate her assertion that Adam is a sociopathic nutcase.

    Actually, that's just one of many reasons he needs to return.

    But what he says about Alexis and Steven is true.

    Maybe it should be one of the original castmembers --- male, and in drag.

    Gordon? JJ?

    Good point. Fallon and Blake's response at the hospital sums up beautifully how they feel about Alexis. She's been drinking? A collective shrug of the shoulders ensures. Appalling.

    I can understand them buying the story, but their behavior was, as you put it, appalling.

    I think that's the major problem of this new Dynasty incarnation. Noone really cares about anyone or anything.
    Okay, that's how youtube, Instagram and Facebook works. And maybe a huge part (DEMO?!?!) of the CW-live-watching-bunch.

    But it's definitely NOT how I am ticking! So i'm not sure if they want to adress the nobrain-audience... or US?!

    Of course. But that doesn't make it easier.....- given the circumstances of this being a cheap soap on The CW. :D

    This sums up the underlying issue with the Dynasty reboot. This series is meant to be about the 1% of the 1% and yet it screens on The CW. Budget restraints is clearly on show as evident with most scenes/action occuring in and around the Carrington mansion. The family seek any excuse to throw another party at the Carrington pad, I'm assuming to inform the audience look how wealthy the Carrington's really are.

    It attempts to look wealthy but comes off cheap. Perhaps this is the vibe the producers are going for - that horrible Wives of ____ _____ ____ insert any town you care for. Original Dynasty exuded wealth and class...until Krystle and Alexis ended up in the lilly pond...but it was still done with class.

    One Alexis ensured her entrance was about class, dignity and revenge. The other complained traffic was a bitch - at a funeral no less.​

    Meh. Though it would create an interesting link to DALLAS, seeing as how Somers and Patrick Duffy did play a married couple on "Step by Step." Heh, I watched that show long before I even heard of DALLAS... Heck, I even saw this parody long before I heard of DALLAS:

    Amy did a perfect work, impersonating "Mummy NS alexis". Many times i could "see" Nicolette under the bandage. Amy captured NS gesture very well.
    But I don't think she will be the new Alexis after "surgery"

    I love that they gave her "hand burns" too. I noticed that Nicolette had old looking hands. And as it seems the producers want to go to a younger looking version of Alexis, post op, they - at least - thought about hands makeover too :D

    Maybe in soapland, but in real life there isn't much that plastic surgeons can do about hands. They are always the giveaway...and I'm pretty sure this is why you see certain actresses always wearing those blouses that have billowing sleeves that are about four inches too long. And why there is such a market for hand models. :D
