    Yes, I know she got shot in the gut and is inside a burning building, but she needs to be saved!

    I can't imagine that the writers would really kill Cristal. But maybe she is pregnant and Claudia killed her baby ? So this time Claudia caused her miscarriage, not Alexis !

    Exactly what I imagined, and it would have been perfect if Cristal was found shot/bleeding after her fight with Alexis, and everyone assumed Alexis shot her (and caused the death of the baby). The encounter with Claudia was great cliffhanger drama, but a "mystery assailant" angle would have a lot more mileage in the new season.

    I'm 99.9% sure Cristal isn't going anywhere...except the hospital, obviously.

    I *hope* they don't kill off Cristal, there's too much going on with her. Although I did read a review of the finale, and the reviewer wondered if Cristal would wake up with amnesia next season. That does sound like it could go places, since it would mean Blake could lie and manipulate her into believing that they're still happily married.

    Blake was ready to let Cristal go, and Cristal still felt protective enough to inform Blake about Alexis' scheme - so the feelings are still there.
    This tragedy is exactly what Mr. and Mrs. Carrington need to save their marriage. Blake is going insane at thought that Cristal might die.

    It would be an interesting creative-writing exercise to depict Cristal developing amnesia from getting shot in the stomach. :re:

    I'd say more like from the trauma of being shot, as well as realizing the place around here is on fire.

    I mean, maybe the baby will suffer from amnesia. Another drama for Blake and Cristal!

    Oh lord, don't even get me started on that. They had absolutely no idea what to do on that show without Dylan McKay.

    Is it set in stone that Cristal is dead? I hope not.

    Of course it isn't. If anything, I'd say she is one of the characters the show HAS to retain in order to continue following the plotlines of the original. I'm guessing they have a LOT planned for Cristal.

    Nah, I think it would be better to kill Cristal off. She isn't really needed with Fallon vs. Alexis being more interesting and the actresses are evenly matched. Maybe a recast could be in order?

    Except there's Kirby's arrival to consider. She's already established to having a dark history with Fallon. And there's also potential Fallon vs. Monica... really, I think Cristal is necessary, in that Fallon can have at least one other female to be allied with.

    Yes, and with Fallon supposedly taking the reins of C-A, she will also need someone close to her who knows the day-to-day business. After Cristal's recovery, she might end up back in the COO position. Girl power indeed.

    Oooh, nice, yes! :D Plus, another thing that makes Cristal necessary: somebody around here complained that there was no sympathetic character on the new show. I think now, with Cristal's tragedy and her need to look out for her three "kids" (Sam, Steven and Fallon) makes her the sympathetic one.

    When Cristal pointed out that she'd been more of a mother to S&F than Alexis had, that REALLY set Alexis off. Granted, I thought it was a bit of an exaggeration on Cristal's part, but I understood what she meant--and what they may have been trying to establish for the future.

    :lol:

    Not because of the shot, but if they want her to have amnesia, it could be because of the amount of smoke she inhaled, which affected her brain and short term memory a bit. ;)
    That kind of illness she could even keep and it could lead to some interesting plots in future, when she just keeps forgetting important things here and there.. or maybe at some point she just pretends to and uses it to her advantage.. and Alexis is always "responsible", because she locked her in there..:D Oh, i'd love to see a scheming Cristal! :spinning:

    2017 I think (unless it is 2016)
    There was a terminal finality to her make up. Maybe even past the expiration date.
