Discussion in 'Dynasty' started by Alexis Colby Carrington, Aug 6, 2018.
If you had to choose your Top 5 Dynasty female characters who would you pick?
Just my Fab Four: Original Fallon; Claudia; Alexis; and reluctantly, the Reinvented Sable.
Krystle, Amanda, Fallon, Claudia, Sammy Jo
Bonus: Sable, Alexis, Dominique, Caress
Alexis, Rita (!), Sammy-Jo, Fallon, Caress
Luke will always be my top 10...or 10 top...or whatever.
1. Krystle - the Dynasty Goddess, the heart and soul of the story.
2. Alexis - the fabulous She-Devil, my all-time favourite villainess
3. Fallon - when she was still the evil stepdaughter and unhappily married to Jeff
4. Sammy Jo - looks like an angel, talks like trash and eats like a dockworker
5. Claudia - tragic, neurotic, and also Dynasty's best outsider
4. Sammy Jo
03. Fallon (#1)
05. Sammy Jo
All of them. Potentially.
Okay, maybe not Sarah Curtis.
3. Sammy Jo
P.s. I enjoyed Sable more on the colbys
For me, they all are perfect: Alexis, Fallon, Krystle, Claudia, Sammy- Jo, Dominique, Amanda, Sable, Kirby, Caress, Dana
I never think of her as a Dynasty character.
Sable's full steam ahead battle on Dynasty was a lot of fun, but I prefer the restrained, desperate housewife version from The Colbys, the one who couldn't afford to drop her guard.
3. Fallon #1 and season 9 Fallon ;-)
4. Amanda #1
This lineup makes sense because it relates to the class warfare depicted in the first two seasons. Season one did this especially well, it may not have been "Howard's End" but it was damn good television. Alexis: she played her cards right, she could have married Cecil who was already wealthy but took a chance on Blake. Fortunately, Blake did strike it rich, unfortunately wealth didn't bring the couple happiness. Krystle: the middle class secretary who married her billionaire boss despite her reservations and was resented by almost everyone (including her own friends, who quickly fell by the wayside) because of it. Fallon: intelligent and ambitious, she should have been Blake's heir apparent but one thing stood in her way - she wasn't male. Sammy Jo: the poor relation who would do anything to fit in with the wealthy Carringtons but was always looked down upon because of her upbringing. Claudia: extremely intelligent and (at least initially) not that impressed with wealth, the Carringtons (including Krystle) chewed her up and spat her out.
Tracey and Leslie both should have fit this narrative but the writers bungled it.
