I just watched the first episode of season 7 and in Karen Cellini's first scene, under a table during the fire, I couldn't help thinking that maybe it would have been better if she had just played Amanda's corpse instead. From behind, similar to what they did with Terri's death in the earthquake on Falcon Crest. Bearing in mind what went on to happen with Cellini being fired, and Amanda never being mentioned again, maybe it would have been better for the character of Amanda to go out in a blaze of glory. And it would have been quite impressive and unexpected of Dynasty to kill off two major characters in a season finale. Cellini's performance in this episode is really dire, with very strange intonation choices and just pretty bad acting in general. I think if Oxenberg had to go then perhaps just putting the character of Amanda out of her misery might have been the most humane thing to do.
