    They'd all drink here and there, of course -- I even want Krystle to flirt with alcoholism in late-Season 7 after Blake's & Alexis' shacking up in Singapore.

    But which character seems like they need to have the biggest issue with alcohol?

    You're saying DYNASTY needed it's own Sue Ellen Ewing?

    I always thought she had the hallmarks of being a great drunk.​

    Steven should have turned into an alcoholic in season 8. At least, it would have given him something to do that year.

    No, it needed someone to remind the other characters how stupid they all are.

    Jack Coleman playing a drunk? On Dynasty? It's a fascinating idea.

    I think Prince Michael had lots of reasons to drink.

    Jeff, he already showed signs early on when he got drunk at Cecil's birthday party and told everyone what he thought of them. Jeff took to the bottle again when Fallon "died". I would have had Jeff be a functioning alcoholic. When someone finally addresses the issue (Fallon?) Blake and Alexis would adamantly deny it. Ironically, it would be Adam (due to his history with drugs) who would try to help Jeff.

    I always did think that Kirby should have gotten drunk more often; she was quite cute in the scene where she gets a little sloshed before Adam has his way with her.

    And speaking of Mommie Dearest, I want Caress -- Kate O'Mara -- drunk and abusive to her daughter (Leslie's her kid -- I've got it all worked out) and anybody who comes within slapping distance when she's on a bender.

    Vulgar, regal and horrific. Somebody on the show needed to be that.
