    I didn't really like Dex, I wish they had cast Jon-Erik Hexum instead (and saved his life perhaps), but I loved Dex with Alexis. Those two did seem to have some genuine sexual chemistry. You could really buy it that they shared some fine orgasms.

    Amanda & Clay- Dynasty´s best looking couple
    Steven & Luke - 80´s best gay couple

    My favorites would be:

    Blake & Alexis - They were the foundation for the show. I still wish they would have reunited properly for a season or so as it would have changed the entire dynamics of the show and would have been great to watch. But due to JF that unfortunately never happened...

    Fallon & Jeff - They were in some ways like a younger version of Alexis and Blake! I really loved this couple as well.

    Sammy Jo & Steven - I liked when they were living together being a family with Danny.

    Adam & Dana - She was the best match for him IMHO. Their story was cute and she loved him before he became Adam.

    Alexis & Dex - Because sparks flew when they were together. So great.

    Amanda & Michael - Because which young school girl doesn't dream about marrying a prince at least once in their lives? lol
    It's silly but their storyline was romantic and they were the young couple.

    I loved Adam and Dana; they had such great chemistry together. You actually believed that they were in love with each other.

    His eyes would actually glow when she was around him, and Dana's guard just dropped. She kept it up for everyone else, except for the kids, but around him, she was a pile of mush.

    My favourite couples were

    1: Steven and Sammy Jo, I know I'm one of the few members on here that are in the 'Steven is Bi' camp but I still believe in the 80s and even now being bisexual is groundbreaking considering bi-erasure and all that, anyway I digress, I wish TPTB went ahead with their original plans for them and have them remarry in season 7 (their wedding was supposed to the main event of the season) they both seemed to have matured by this point and were able and ready for a mature relationship unlike their first go-round
    When Steven was mourning Ted and Sammy Jo was a gold digger, by 1986 they had both grown up with life experiences.

    2: Adam and Dana, the bright sparks of seasons 7-8, Dana was such a breath of fresh air by this point in the series which was looking staid and repetitive, and she brought out a new side to Adam, something which Kirby and Claudia failed to do, plus the fact that they both have a shared history of being small town teenagers in the liberal 60s/70s, I wish we could've seen flashbacks to circa 1970-71, and saw them as teenagers, in the new Dynasty I hope they skip Adam's romances with Kirby,
    Sammy Jo and Claudia and go straight ahead with Dana.

    3: That being said I did like Adam and Claudia in the original series only, but an alternat version where instead of marrying Steven, Claudia marries Adam in season 4, after her divorce from Matthew

    4: Steven and Chris Deegan, had potential to be a great gay couple I prefaced Chris to Luke as a male partner for Steven

    5: Fallon and Zorelli, they had chemistry and fire something which Fallon lacked with Jeff in later years.

    Is this even a contest? Blake and Krystle of course. How many soap couples stay together during the entire show without break ups, infidelity and stuff like that? It is very unusual. Blake and Krystle sooo belonged together. Alexis was cool but it was obvious she and Blake was too much alike to ever make it work. Krystle made Blake a better person, with Alexis it was the opposite.

    The other couples was boring compared to B&K. But Sammy Joe had some interesting moments.

    Kirby and Jeff was like looking at paint drying. Kirby looked like an old shoe in the face and was such a cry baby.

    Alexis and Dex was pretty heavy stuff.

    The best couple after B&K was Fallon and Nick Toscanni. He really fitted in Dynasty as a character. Too bad he wasn't with the show longer.

    I loved Alexis and Dex of those that actually were. But Alexis and Cecil would have been exciting to watch. And on the same note, so would have been Fallon and Cecil!

    This would have worked for a novel-style limited series (20 or 25 episodes) and Alexis should reveal that Cecil is indeed the father of his young bride.

    But they kept her Blake's anyway, so no obstacles ever existed. I have a feeling it may have happened had Esther Shapiro's original plan of Madeleine coming in for a short episode stint came to pass.

    Btw, I've voted for Adam & Dana, not because they were the most exciting couple (and their background story - yet another rape - didn't really enhance that story. I'd rather have these two without any previous connections) but they seem to embody Dynasty's new power couple, but not necessarily a copy of Blake & Krystle.
    Dana looked like the perfect Carrington Wife and eventhough Adam had become persona non grata in season 9 (and I loved every bit of it) I'm sure they could have find a way to change that in future seasons, or even a next-generation Dynasty.
    I'm not suggesting that they should become the golden happy couple, but on the surface they should appear as Mr & Mrs Successful, similar to Jason & Sable Colby.

    It goes without saying that in season 1 every couple was fascinating to watch: Blake & Krystle, Matthew & Claudia and Jeff & Fallon.

    Adam was written as cardboard villain as could be in season 9, and I am with Thomson in his criticism of Paulsen for that. I will grant that he had something to do and his fingers were in all the pies, but still it took the character back years. But while the character had some growth in seasons 7 and 8, especially as a brother and son, the storylines (his own parentage, then the surrogacy) were not very exciting, and that's why he and Dana did not get me excited either. I would have preferred it if, for instance, they were each working on rival companies (DC and Colbyco) and the conflict was from that, and not from "Dana can't have children." While in season 1 DYNASTY was ahead of all other shows in its portrayal of women, later seasons took women Medieval. When it comes to pairing Adam, think the show really messed up with Kirby--the role and its position in the Carrington hierarchy had promise, but both the writers and the actress messed it up.

    As for Jason and Sable, I did not like him (Heston's acting was too old school for my taste), but I wonder if Sable did or if she simply liked everything that went with the title of Mrs. Jason Colby--and of course for that nasty Frankie not to have him!

    At least he was consistently villainous, and it was such a satisfying moment when Blake almost literally kicked him out of the mansion.
    They did the drugs cop-out whenever they felt they had to mellow him, but I think he's inherited the worst characteristics of both his parents, especially in situations when he was being rejected (e.g. Steven, Jeff being Blake's favourite etc).

    I think she truly loved him with all her heart and it was the strongest and longest love of the whole Dynasty universe for me. As sad as that was for Sable. :(
    2nd one was Miles' tragic love for Fallon. Those Colbys were really great with epic love tragedies. :D
