Hey poody67013, in answer to your question about resolving Catch 22
3 August 2015 | by dominic-m-730-399600See all my reviews

If you wish to know what happens after 'catch 22', you need to watch the miniseries that was aired in 1991, 2 years after the last episode of the Dynasty series. It's called 'Dynasty: The Reunion' and it's set 2 years on from the 'catch 22' episode. You'll find out what happened to Blake, Crystal, Alexis, Dex and all the others. It was originally aired for 2 hours over 2 nights, but is in either 2x2 hour episodes or 4x1 hour episodes in syndication. It wasn't a great miniseries in my opinion, but at least it tied up all the loose ends from the final episode of the series. It might be on DVD, but I'm not certain of that. The ending ties up all the loose ends, and isn't a cliff hanger in itself so doesn't need a sequel. True Dynasty fans will enjoy it somewhat, but for anyone watching it without having seen the series would probably find it quite slow and boring in parts.
