    Interesting point, but then again, The Best Of Krystle was much better than The Best Of Dex.

    2017 I think (unless it is 2016)
    Agreed, although in season 9 Dex became a really integral part of the show, and it made sense too, finally having Blake move more into a patriarch role (like Jock Ewing) than the peak of a love triangle with two other women as they laughingly had him be for years.

    Dex Dexter - what a name! I liked him. It was great casting. My mother was crazy for him.
    He was a good man for Alexis - both seemed much more sexuell active, adventures and full of fire.
    Creating the name Lexdex was a good idea.

    I'm finding Dex surprisingly likeable in Season 7 when he's suddenly everybody's friend and a lot more approachable than he was before.

    Probably one of the other reasons that I like season 7 more than most people seem to.

    Nader has admitted in interviews that the only reason he was kept on the show as long as he was was that Joan was "very attracted to me in the role" and pressed producers to not toss him out during their characters' frequent estrangements.

    Well I am glad she insisted they keep him. I like how he changes I guess from season 6/7 to season 9.

    For that reason, I'm pretty suspicious that Nader had a Cancer Rising (for the zodiacally enthused) as Soul, Joe Penney and Lorenzo Lamas did.

    It's a similar note of volatile intelligence.

    I wonder if Dex should have been a doctor.

    - Joan also said in a talk show she pleased the producers to re-build Alexis´ relationship with Dex when she had to deal with Sean instead

    I remember an interview with Nader, where he said in all his bathtub scenes with Joan, she'd "tickle me in all the right places." That makes me want to go "Aww" and throw up at the same time. :lol:

    Another interview I remember is with Joan, where she's talking about Nader, and then says, in a giggling, swooning tone of voice, "Ohohoho, Miiiiiiiichaellllll..."

    I like Dex, and his cool full name.

    A character with a perfect balance and not overdone in any way. A wholesome and genuine man, actually. Very masculine but yet tender.

    Nader and Collins made a great power couple, despite the cheating and heated arguments, or maybe thanks to it.;) They were never a "B&K-couple" with endless love and fidelity, but that kind of relationship would have been just plain wrong for them. If Blake and Krystle were an ordinary Sunday roast dinner, Dex and Alexis alternated between a sloppy and greasy meal at McDonald's and a romantic caviar rendezvous in front of the fire.

    Well, somebody needed to examine Alexis' head at some point. The rest of her had been examined enough... and by enough sets of hands. :cool:

    In Season 9 Dex and Sable had great chemistry and many have said that Dex should have been paired off with Sable for a season 10 - however upon re-watching season 9 I think Sable would have dumped Dex in a flash if Blake showed her any romantic interest
    Did Sable really think she could live in Denver and keep Dex out of her child's life??? And prevent Alexis from interfering???
    Although Alexis admitted to having a one night stand with Jason why Sable cared so much and put so much hatred towards vendetta against Alexis when it seemed obvious in Season one of the Colby's that Jason had an appreciation for the ladies and was probably not faithful - I think her vendetta should have been against Frankie who did much worse in betraying her
    Plot twist for season 10: In season 9 Sable blamed Alexis for Jason finding out the twins might not be biologically his I think a better twist is that Connie written a letter sent to Jason informing him of the twins parentage upon her death

    I think Sable and Dex were good together too but I don't think Dex would have stayed with Sable. He would have been with her after the accident and made an effort to be a family but in the end I think he and Alexis would keep going back and forth with each other as they always have done. Sable would be devastated.
    I don't think she would stay in Denver; she would leave to get away from Alexis. She would put her child before everything else in her life.
    I like the idea of Connie leaving something to let Jason know he wasn't the twins' father but I think she would have done it because she knew who the father was - Cecil. She had kept the secret because at least the children were Colby children, but she hated Sable and knew she would never admit to being raped so just left it that Monica and Miles were not Jason's children. Sable could ensure the children still got their share of the Colby fortune but she would have to admit to them she was raped and she would never want them to know that was how they were conceived.
    Dex didn't deserve Sable or the baby - he was never committed to anyone and never wanted to be. He liked the idea of being everyone's knight in shining armour but never did live up to it - he was always too busy looking at himself in the mirror...

    I dunno
    I've always had the feeling that if season 10 had happened then Dex would've died from that balcony fall and Alexis would've fallen on top of him. It's even how it looks like it's going to turn out in those final moments. I do think Sable and Blake would've been pushed together, especially with her being a single mother and they already had her show maternal instincts towards Kweentyyyyna in season 9.

    Terrible character and it's a shame he lasted so long. LOVED him going over that balcony and loved that "he didn't fare well...."
