    Yes, excellent suggestion. The show needed to start with something that organically connected the past to the present. But at that point DYNASTY did not even understand its own past.

    As off the rails bad as the Colbys was, Sable’s rape gave it an added dimension, IMHO.....

    The Colbys' Fallon was nothing Fallon ever was in early seasons of Dynasty. Original Fallon would have kicked Miles in the nuts.... The Colby's Fallon was a victim. I really couldn't stand her crying, whining, ... It took David Paulsen hard work to make me fall in love again with the character.

    She was already better than the catatonic COLBYS state as soon as she moved back to Dynasty in season 8, though they had her dye her hair blonde; a rumour was that Collins demanded that, but I don't know for sure. But yes in season 9 she was certainly her old self from the PSM days (meaning her PSM's first three seasons).

    Yes, I remember an video interview of Emma. The journalist asked her if the rumor that Joan Collins required "no other brunette" in the show was true. Emma answered "no", that her shades of hair was lighter to be closer to the character (meaning PSM's Fallon). Which didn't make sense at all, as PSM's Fallon had darker hair :D than the strawberry blond Emma's Fallon.

    But when was Emma blonde on Dynasty, apart from the episode with the blonde wig?

    I didn't watch the interview, so if she did say "closer to the character" I disagree that she meant PSM's Fallon. The Fallons of S8 & S9 came across to me as a rebooted character, like Jeff.

    She is not blonde but she is not her natural dark colour in S08e04 (The Announcement); she has gone brown and has stayed that way. But she is crazy blonde when the season starts.

    In a 1986 interview for a press magazine (Orange Coast Magazine), she also said that.
    In 1986, it was S6 (1985-86) & S7 (1986-87)...

    Actually, I was personally talking about "strawberry blond" (you can google it and see the color, and it was very very close to Emma's hair color in season 8)

    @thomaswak Thanks. Yes, when ES played Fallon on TC, I never thought that she was doing a bad reprisal of PMS's Fallon but a Fallon specifically written for TC. The signs were there.

    To be honest, I never blamed Emma for TC's Fallon too. Poor Emma, she had to play that Fallon for 2 years.
    I saw an interview where she said she was sad/Dispapointed that Dynasty ended (with seasons 9) because her last year was the year she finally got to play the character she wanted to play. She said something like "the character was finally right"...

    I just don’t understand why the writers made Fallon so wimpy. No wonder PSM refused to ever return. Fallon had been tainted irreparably.....

    To me that looked just like a light red.

    Yes. It is light red. It's a shade of strawberry blond. Anyway, Emma was way more beautiful with her longer dark hair in season 9. I think it was also David Paulsen's suggestion to Emma to go be brunette again, with long hair. Emma was absolutely gorgeous during the final season.
