Sammy Jo Dean Carrington: But what if he doesn't? Maybe I can keep trying to conceive, and he'll never find out.
Krystle Carrington: [wisely] You can't base your relationship on lies.

little darling added to the cast

No, I don't mean Terri Garber, I mean the little girl who plays Krystina, four-year-old little miss Player. She's gonna be around for the duration. What a little darling!

The Alexis/Ben plot line doesn't make sense. So, she trumps him by having found out his secret demon, that those casino bosses (the Mob, I suppose) are on his tail? Ben could simply have said, well, if it's curtains for me, I confess to the perjury thing, choosing a nice, safe jail cell, so take care of me, and Alexis wouldn't have had any power over him because of the latest revelation.

And who was the leggy seductive woman on the phone back in 7.01? Certainly not this Vera woman, no way, and Leslie, who might have the legs, it wouldn't have been...?

Yeah, I don't peek up ahead, and even though it is just more than thirty years later, I am quite fond of dear old grand dame DYNASTY, even if I occasionally tear its plot developments to shreds.

Know what? I thought it was gonna be a DEVIL'S POND situation with Amanda and Michael. Anybody else who saw it that way? But nothing came of it. I just saw that little isle in the middle of that lake, and was instantly reminded of that Tara Reid movie, about to pounce on "where somebody got the idea for the movie originally known as Heaven's Pond from" as a Trivia contribution. But, no.

Heather Locklear continues to mesmerize. (okay, you all know how besotted I am, so I'll just quit, but...) What a pretty angel. Baby, who cares about the false pregnancy? Aw...

Anyway, I don't trust that weird Clare girl. Lock up little Danny-boy. That one's a bunny-cooker.
