    Someone, either Krystle or Fallon or *someone*, would protest: "You're too OLD to be pregnant again! Are you sure it's not menopause?" :lol:

    I would've been interested in seeing Linda play a drunk. :D

    Nah. It's Jenny. She isn't imaginary after all.

    I get the Andrew-Catherine Oxenberg connection. She’s blogged that she’d turned down his proposal. To think that in another reality they’re half-siblings. *chuckle*

    Your mention of Tower Bridge caught my eye …the bridge’s not far from the Tower of London… did you have the Princes in the Tower in mind when you made your post?

    …because every time I think about the mystery of those 2 bodies walled up in the Carrington cellars, I wonder if that was David Paulsen’s tongue-in-cheek allusion to Miles and Jeff, the princes in the Colby Tower; themselves the allusion to Paul Huson’s film role in Richard III as the elder of the two princes (the uncrowned King Edward V) who were placed in the Tower as children until their mysterious deaths. The Tower was where future kings would live for a time before they were crowned. In Edward’s case, his uncle usurped the crown and the princelings weren’t seen again.

    What if.... either one of them had grown to manhood & sired children. His progeny lived on down the ages, always a known threat to the monarch in residence. Then last century, Tom Carrington, when running his shipping company and transporting dubious cargo, had become drawn into a plot to secretly exile 2 descendants of that prince who were agitating to prove their claim. Tom brought them to America and hid them in a secret room in the cellars of his home. Someone was supposed to come and fetch them but never did. Things had gone wrong, and Tom, saddled with 2 ‘house’ guests with Trouble as their middle name, bricked them up.

    I would have loved to see Alexis hit rock bottom, and I don't mean those physical accidents/shootings etc that are solved in 1 or 2 episodes.
    She would blame Krystle, naturally.

    "I hate that bitch!"

    Um, yeah...that was exactly what I was thinking. :oops:

    If the show had tried this plot, the Shapiros might have ended up in The Tower. Which of course would have made Snarky's day. It also begs the question: would Fergie make a cameo?

    The Duchess?? At least a lookalike. I'd have parties at the mansion or The Carlton peppered with celebrity lookalikes hired from those agencies that do that. Especially at the black and white ball in Season 7.

    I'd have a running joke where a silent Jackie Onassis double, always in sunglasses, pops up occasionally in a crowd beside Alexis -- at an opening, an opera, whatever high end soiree... Alexis would make a smart-ass remark which suggesting a long enmity, and "Jackie" huffs and walks away.

    By cutting the flower heads off first before putting the stalks in water, like Morticia Addams when perfectly sober.

    Whenever I think of Krystle, Blake and Alexis, I can't help but think of Diana, Charles and Camilla only difference is that Blake loves Krystle and Charlie-Boy didn't love Diana.

    The Blake-Krystle wedding and the
    Charles-Diana wedding both took place in 1980-81 as well.

    One ridiculous plot I would create is one where in seasons 10 & 11, Amanda would return, only she's searching for King Arthur's sword after a dying Prince Michael tells her about the prized object, she teams up with Miles and they naturally fall in love, however Mrs Elias is also searching for the sword to add to her collection, she already has the Crystal skull.

    Great, Dynasty could use a little bit of "ooh la la".

    Sable: Why don't you just ask your mother, dear? She's the expert in this family.

    Knowing Sable, she would claim Alexis also had an affair with King Arthur in her youth.

    Is it going to be the real King Arthur or King Arthur of Tralaland?
