    Wouldn't someone who claimed they'd been framed worry about their reputation?
    Regardless, the reporter's expose would make folk wonder why Caress wrote lies, and assume correctly for the money. Presumably the reward for her spectacular publication was moolah by the buckets full. Alexis would just distance herself from Caress's feverish imaginings. The reporter would have his/her work cut out for them to try and show how much of a big fraud Alexis truly was. No?

    Sorry to be a wet blanket, but didn't Caress tell Blake that Zach was the one who framed her for murder?
    Yeah, I'd like to see Caress explain to Blake why she's changed her tune.

    You're reading too much into this. My only point was that they could have had more fun with it.

    I think that Caress should have brought up the movies that Sis Dearest did when she wanted to be "a serious actress"...

    I dunno
    Can I just say out of all the scenarios that's been posted on this forum about things that could've/should've happened on Dynasty this is the most realistic?

    If I didn't know it didn't happen I would've thought it had happened. It all seems so very familiar, so very Dynasty.

    Well basically a variation of it happened every season or so on Dynasty.

    Not to go off topic or anything, but...

    I've always thought Caress' title card should have been Krystle's -- the blue velvet poofy thing with the diamonds. (The diamond display necklace title card Krystle had for several years was too clunky and inelegant).

    Besides, Caress seems more like a ruby or chocolate topaz kind of person.

    I liked Caress' title card, but would have equally settled for Emeralds - they match the colour of her eyes, green with envy for her sister, and hail from South America, just as we first see Caress in a Venezuelan jail.

    That's it --- it's the colors. White diamonds seem right for Krystle (though I never liked the way they did it for her card) but something smokier seems more right for O'Mara. Emeralds sound good to me. (Although I've wondered if emeralds might be good for Emma Samms, because, y'know, Emmaralds).

    I could see it as a metaphorical chain (and as it turned out, a millstone too)

    Oh, the white diamonds were certainly metaphoric ("crystal") but Linda's title card should have had them draped across black velvet luxuriously (or done as they did O'Mara's, having a waterfall of them cascading onto velvet, be it black or blue). But Linda's was done somewhat crassly, I felt, with those display things inside a shoppe glass cabinet.

    I always assumed it was B roll from the scene in season 3 when Krystle runs into Alexis at Jensens jewellers, when Alexis is holding Adam’s baby rattle.

    I have seen these before but was put off as they are not actually shots from DYNASTY.
