    They are completely tone-deaf in my book, actually, with the exception of the incestuous tone in the Adam-Fallon relationship, where they keep pushing the envelope and somehow manage to pull if off.

    I'm not really sure how to make it more "shocking" though - although I guess they could've technically held Ana Brenda and Nicolette to their contracts until now, they go in and out emerges Daniella and Elaine.

    I was watching some clips of season 1 & 2, and I twas painful to watch that Nicollette had to play and Edie Britt 2.0 Alexis. Do you remember when she's doing gym in the living room in front of Steven? It was so Edie... There was absolutely no Alexis in that scene... Were the writers too much influenced by Nicollette's personality? Were they fans of Desperate Housewives and wanted write Edie? I suppose I will never have the answer but at least their writing for Elaine's Alexis is better. I really hope they won't mess her this time.

    It never surprised me that Krystle always won the physical fights. She always came into the fights with a lot more anger and aggression than Alexis.

    Yes. It was especially obvious in OG Dynasty. Alexis's strength was in her tongue. Krystles' strength was in her butch shoulders :D

    Cristal had several heavy-duty revelations dumped on her in rapid order. They could have played up her heartbreak over the loss of the baby (and the suggestion that she may not ever be able to have another) along with the horror of having Mark's head blown off right in front of her, sending C3 into that lily pond out for blood. Instead of a mildly amusing catfight, it would appear to the viewer that C3 really did intend to drown Alexis. She would even get the advantage and hold Alexis's head under the water for what seems an eternity to the viewer. As Alexis flapped her arms and struggled, they would end the episode with C3 looking pleased with herself. Of course when they resumed the scene in the next episode, C3 would have a moment of clarity where she recognized she was doing exactly what Blake had done with Mack...and pull back from "finishing the job" because she had been so horrified by the fact that Blake had killed someone in anger that way. Seeing herself about to do the same thing would shock her back to reality and she'd let go of Alexis...and she would feel a bit more understanding of (or compassion for) just what Blake was feeling when he killed Mack, even as she makes it clear to Alexis that next time, she won't be so charitable. From then on, C3 would not be able to jump on her high horse concerning Blake's actions the way Fallon did. The encounter would make it pretty clear to Alexis that C3 will jack her up if she tries anything like that again.

    From the fireplace to the lily pond. I guess you could call it an upgrade.

    The plastic surgeon installed a convenient handle on the back of her neck so various characters could keep hold without having to wear gloves.

    Something I've just noticed...

    Episode 10, at the very beginning of the episode : No Lily pond
    [​IMG]
    You can even see some people on the left and on right. Planting magic seeds? Because...

    ...Same episode, 34 mn later : new plants and a lily pond!
    It's not your average mansion. It's a wonderland!
    [​IMG]

    And of course Alexis was not aware of the all new magic Lily pond. And that's why she went straight ahead when she was speed-walking away from Cristal.

    Also notice the increased vegetation on the left part of the building. How things grow in 34 minutes!

    I know something that can grow in less than 30 seconds. But you can't find it in a garden.
    Unless it's called Tony.

    Nu Alexis Carrington Colby surely knows what I'm talking about.
    I think it was implied that Tony the gardener was lily "pond-ing" her for money, no?

    Honestly, I wonder if they shot a scene or reference of it being built or something, because Alexis did look a bit confused when she headed that way and saw the magic lily pond.

    Yes, Alexis was confused... I would have loved to read the script, to see what was intended.
