    As the key DYNASTIER author (now lost forever to time) I have a lot of such ideas.

    Here's a few, just for starters:

    *Sammy's Jo's sex tapes (what we used to call "porno films") would compromise Blake's S8 campaign for governor

    *Krystle would be charged with Tracey Kendall's murder concurrent to Alexis being charged with Senator McVane's murder. During testimony, Alexis and Krystle, the gallery, the jury and the baliffs all wind up in a melee on the court room floor.

    *Krystle shows signs of clairvoyance following the limo being sideswiped off that mountain road.

    *Steven #2 turns out to be Ben Reynolds after all, but he didn't really remember it.

    *Matthew, Dr. Toscanni and Steven #1 indeed had some involvement with the Moldavian coup.

    Krystina attacked by African killer bees. I envision her running down the lawns screaming as the swarm engulfs her. She may even jump into the lily pond to save herself, that's if she survives at all.

    But a gunshot heard minutes before could mean the incident was not entirely accidental. Could someone have shot the nest while Krystina played innocently in the garden?

    Excellent! I always did want a little more of a threat from Alexis to Kwysthteeeeeena to be implied.

    When she had her heart operation, I wanted Blake and Krystle to later learn that Alexis had talked a donor out of giving their child's healthy heart to Krystina, just so Alexis could ride in on her white horse with a donor heart which turned out to be black market and gave Krystina near-fatal problems at first.

    *That JR/SueEllen/JackScalia hotel room cliffhanger in 1988? I want Blake, Krystle and Alexis to do that instead. (After all those Ewing shooting, Sue Ellen needed to do something more hands-on.... like a gardening spade to JR's gut, thus permitting a lot of those sadistic close ups Miss Gray did so well.)

    *I want Alexis to push Claudia into traffic, with only Sammy Jo as the witness; this way, Claudia's wheel-chaired inability to reach a La Mirage door makes more sense.

    This.
    How I'd love to see the look on their faces.

    Or would they simply use the cop-out "Then we'll adopt you. Problem solved! Ha. Haha. Hahaha!" ?

    I think that filthy-rich greedy guts was stealing their honey! But she should blame Alexis, absolutely.

    I hadn't chalked this one up to Alexis specifically, but I had wondered if somehow it could be possible that Krystina ended up with the heart of an evil child who murdered her parents thus changing her personality completely and giving her homicidal tendencies. She embarks on a series of murders against anyone who's done her wrong, or doesn't give in to her increasing demands for tootsie wolls and stwawbewy ice cweam.

    Now, if we combine that with Snarky's idea (Alexis provided the heart) then she accidentally created the Dynasty equivalent of Frankenstein's monster.

    What should I tell Blake?

    One thing I liked, at least potentially, about nuDALLAS was the fracking plotline.

    I might have liked this for later DYNASTY, except fracking and its environmental impact weren't really things discussed in the public arena very much back then, if at all.

    And even now, there are people who laugh at the connection between fracking and earthquakes occurring in areas where they never used to occur, even though it's been proven.

    My point being: what a nice idea to learn that the planned S7 avalanche that never was, and subsequent quakes around Blake's property, were caused by fracking. Because, despite 30 years on that estate, Blake had never been able to obtain the mineral rights because he'd never been able to determine who owned them -- that ownership masked by a slew of dummy corporations.

    We learn, much to Blake's lack of surprise, that Alexis holds those mineral rights, his ex-wife feigning surprise when ColbyCo is identified as the owner, something Cecil snatched up (much like Alexis herself) back in the '50s.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    I like the idea of the family being jarred awake in the middle of the night with the mansion seemingly about to collapse, chandeliers swinging, spinets playing, Ming toppling, potted plants overturning, Krystle unable to determine whether this is an earthquake or one of her psychic headaches (or maybe both).

    Smells like Season 8, to me.

    And it could also cause Roger Grimes' body to surface. Double whammy!

    I also want Ben, the evil evangelist, to accidentally heal a person (a rich man's kid), thus giving him divine status in Denver.
    It doesn't take long before he starts His Church, and he decides to use his powerful position to destroy Blake.
    And then one night, the Carrington mansion is surrounded by brainwashed townspeople with flaming torches, shouting "kill the pigs! kill the pigs!"

    The front door opens, and Krystina (with the murderous heart) is pushed out of the house.

    I want to see the Carringtons go to Mardi Gras for some business purposes. They can film it in the studio, if they must, as long as they get the Second Unit footage. Again, feels like Season 8.

    I want the Carringtons' limo, perhaps in New Orleans or even Denver, get lost in "the bad side of town" and we see the core characters being taunted, assaulted, and chased thru the ghetto, terrorized by the have-nots.

    More Season 8.

    I'd like Ye Olde Englishe Faiyyyrre to take place possibly on the estate rather than the Carlton, and be more elaborate than it was. I want Alexis to have another psychic reading, but delivered from either Esther or Aaron in a mysterious hoodie.

    If I were hired to produce the show, they'd obviously be in some dire straits behind the scenes. I'd be hired with a mandate: cut the budget, do more with less. So....

    Blake will be knocked off his pedestal when he wakes up one morning to a large market downturn. In rapid-fire order Blake has to sell the mansion and the feds seize the Denver Carrington building. Krystle isn't fazed by having to give up the furs and the limos, but the Carrington marriage still suffers because Blake can't deal with moving into a dreary, suburban tract house and taking a job as a checker at the A&P. He lays awake at night plotting a hostile takeover by framing the market manager for eating too many grapes from the produce displays. Krystle, meanwhile, worries that Blake will flip out when he discovers she now out-earns him in her part-time job as an Uber driver.

    Alexis is similarly hurt by the market downturn, forced to move in with Fallon and live off the proceeds from selling her jewelry. Fallon is soon plotting to kill her mother--not for the insurance, but simply because she's a pain in the ass. Whether Fallon succeeds depends entirely on whether La Collins will be willing to take a mid-season pay cut. Adam double-crosses his sister by brokering the sale of LaMirage out from under her to a real estate developer who plans to turn the property into a Motel 6 that rents rooms by the hour. Fallon and Jeff, intent on revenge, plant a bomb in Adam's car, unaware that Krystle had been borrowing Adam's car to make all that Uber money. The plot thickens when Alexis (in heavy disguise) orders up an Uber for her weekly visit to the pawn shop. Jeff is desperate to stop the car, but Fallon? Eh, not so much.

    Amanda is revealed to be a conwoman in cahoots with Alexis all along - Alexis intercepted the paternity tests and faked them. When all is revealed Dominique will of course be furious that Blake would accept Amanda as his own on a whim, while not acknowledging his own half-sister.

    *sigh* I miss DYNASTIER I have a few ideas myself:

    1: Instead of the Moldavian massacre cliffhanger, it would be a whodunit, Blake pissed off alot of people in season 5 so, someone who try and bump him off in palace grounds of Moldavia

    2: The Royal wedding would be pushed to early season 6, instead of the the Carrington-Colby party at the manor, the Colby's would come to the royal wedding at the Carlton Hotel, Blake's attempted murderer is still out there

    3: Joel and Rita dupe Sammy Jo and kidnap Krystle at the wedding only Rita is shot dead and Krystle is kidnapped in the fray

    4: Lady Ashley, Luke, Prince Mikeal and Galen are all killed, Luke confesses to Steven on his deathbed that he tried to kill Blake as he felt Steven would never truly commit to him while Blake was alive

    5: Krystle escapes Joel after 2 episodes with Sammy Jo and Adam's help

    6: Joel tries to escape justice but he crashes into the lake, which disturbs the body of Roger Grimes, who Joel see's as he drowns in terror, the body rises to the surface after 22 years

    *I'd have the Prince stay around long enough to impregnate Sammy Jo, then kidnap her for an enforced abortion at Alexis' demand, leaving Krystle's niece barren.

    Alexis would later witness Sammy Jo "accidentally" push the Prince into an animals' cage at Ye Olde Anglishe Faiiyyrrre, thus killing him.

    *Dex would be long gone by late Season 8, and a hunky, younger former beachboy she shacked up with in Acapulco -- someone with a real history with Alexis -- appears in Denver upon hearing about her injury in the assassination attempt. (I always picture Joe Penny, a very good actor and great-looking, but I think he'd already started on JAKE & THE FAT MAN. Meh.)

    I wouldn't want to lose the Sammy Jo/Michael plot either so I guess he can stick around, he and Adam could be bros, going from bar to bar, party to party, picking up girls, taking cocaine, just highlighting the real 80s party vibe that we never saw on the series, perhaps even an implied threesome between Michael, Sammy Jo and Adam, obviously TPTB woudl never have done this but a throw away line from Sammy Jo could be

    Sammy Jo: I like sandwiches, especially the filling, sweet like me, between two sturdy rolls.......just like the other night.....boys

    As Mrs Gunnerson who was walking by hear this, knows the implication, chokes on her cough sweet

    Another scene could be Michael sleeping with Claudia who becomes pregnant by him, she goes to tell him but she stops outside the door and overhears the conversation between Alexis and Michael that they plan to give Sammy Jo a forced abortion, Claudia backs away and keeps her pregnancy to herself, in the meantime she meets up with Dean Caudwell again, who agrees to help raise Claudia's unborn child away from Denver, as they leave early-mid season 7
    All the while, Alexis is unaware that her plan sort of failed since she never learns of Claudia carrying the princes baby.

    I haven't figured out the logistics of this yet, why or how it would happen, but I have always wanted to see Krystle going on a killing spree in a wheelchair with fembot gun boobs. I'm not sure if she has been programmed to carry out a mass shooting or is working for the forces of good to purge the earth of scum. I had also hoped to have her in an electric wheelchair but due to budget restraints she'll have to make do with this one.
