Going into Dynasty Season 2 Episode 1, viewers have been seemingly already effectively conscious that Cristal was the one who perished within the fateful hearth that rocked the barn on Dynasty Season 1 Episode 22.
This was due to Nathalie Kelley revealing that she would not be a part of the sequence and the casting of Ana Brenda Contreras because the “actual” Cristal. As anticipated, it took away from the shock issue of Cristal’s supposed dying.
Whereas Kelley obtained a lukewarm response for her position as Cristal, I’ve had a delicate spot for the actress since she appeared on UnREAL. An off-screen dying is a horrible technique to go, but it surely leaves scope for a return down the road.
In its prime, the OG Dynasty was full of twists, and bringing the Cristal we all know and love again into the combo down the road, doubtlessly with a brand new face, could be a strong transfer.
I am not digging Cristal Jennings proper now, however we solely acquired to satisfy her for a couple of brief seconds. Her feedback about feeling like she knew the household have been considerably awkward, however this might counsel Celia (we’ll name her that once we’re speaking about two Cristals, you guys!) had a extra vital connection to this lady than we first thought.
She’s been billed as the one who owns the id Celia took on, so she’s sure to have an entire host of secrets and techniques and a hidden agenda. Granted, if she needs to get some cash, she’s going to should make her technique to that stunning manor earlier than Blake provides all of his cash away.
Probably the most shocking factor for me was that Blake was truly upset about his spouse’s demise. If you happen to watch Dynasty on-line, their relationship was fractured by the lies and the belief points.
There wasn’t a powerful basis, to start with, and the fixed bombshells put them in two separate instructions. Him claiming to go on a world tour of all of the locations he and Cristal deliberate to go to was in all probability extra about him spinning this entire mess into one thing optimistic.
He is beginning to develop a bond with Sammy, and that may very well be attributed to the truth that Sammy is aware of Cristal greater than anybody else within the mansion. I am getting the sensation that Blake goes to tackle a extra parental determine in the direction of Sammy going ahead as a result of Cristal was the one who raised him and she or he’s now gone.
Did I ever anticipate Sammy and Blake to bond? Nope, however I’m so right here to see the place this storyline goes. I did not like the way in which Blake revealed that Stephen was going to be a father to Melissa’s child on the occasion.
That was mean-spirited, however he knew Fallon was about to make a cope with the satan, so he simply went all out and spilled the entire beans. Sammy dealt with it surprisingly effectively and noticed this as a beacon of sunshine in an in any other case darkish time.
However I nonetheless do not absolutely belief Melissa. She has all the time held a torch for Stephen, so there’s each motive to consider that she may very well be touring this path to lure him and get nearer to him than ever.
The great factor right here is that Alexis has doubts, so search for her to do some digging to seek out out the reality. That is assuming she even makes it out of the primary few episodes with out touchdown in jail.
She will be able to’t maintain quiet a couple of factor, and that is in all probability what infuriated Hank much more. Happening TV to throw him beneath the bus made for a hilarious phase, however now she’s proper within the deep finish.
He is not going to surrender, and Alexis has no one to show to as a result of she performed a component within the hearth that killed Cristal. That is one thing she’s going to should cope with herself, and it will be enjoyable to see simply how she manages it.
The love triangle involving Fallon, Liam and Culhane acquired a lot extra difficult throughout “Twenty-Three Skidoo,” and that was largely right down to Uncle Max displaying up together with his checkbook.
As a viewer, it is one of the vital engrossing love triangles on TV in fairly a while. Each Liam and Culhane are genuinely good males who look after Fallon, so she’s in a little bit of a tricky spot having a fake marriage with Liam whereas being engaged to Culhane.
Her dream in regards to the three-way within the bathe confirmed that Fallon was conflicted. Wouldn’t it be an excessive amount of for them to chop the connection drama out, and simply make this duo a trio?
Her love life apart, Fallon introduced her A sport within the battle to save lots of Carrington Atlantic. It is an uphill battle, however with Blake taking a backseat to grieve, Fallon was wheeling and dealing to safe the way forward for the corporate.
Having Blake and Fallon making an attempt to outmaneuver the opposite will make for some loopy moments.
Did anybody else really feel slightly short-changed that Fallon wasn’t the one to seek out Kirby rummaging by way of her belongings? They each have fiery personalities, so I can completely perceive why they do not like each other.
The second I laid eyes on Kirby, I assumed it was Bella Thorne, however then I noticed I used to be the one who wrote about her being forged within the sequence.
If Kirby tried to set hearth to the home up to now, there is no telling what lengths she’s going to go to within the battle to get again contained in the mansion. The place is so massive that Anders may in all probability cover her there with out anybody ever noticing.
Nonetheless, she’s going to trigger some bother with Jeff Colby, and I can get on board with that. It was a shock that Jeff was nonetheless a part of the motion as a result of he’s given storylines that fizzle out rapidly.
“Twenty-Three Skidoo” had the entire soapy twists we have come to anticipate from this CW drama sequence, and it left me wanting extra.
What about, Dynasty Fanatics?
