Another Couple of Hours Last Night And I Could Have Ended Up In Bed With My Sister

by Paul Siciliano

As Fallon, and her incest issues.  That is one of the recurring themes for Fallon throughout the series.  She is a little too close to her father.  She almost bedded Cecil Colby who almost turned out to be her father.  She almost bedded Adam before she learned that he was her brother.  She married two of her cousins - Jeff and Miles.  Granted, some people do not consider having sex with a first cousin to be incest.  Finally, when Fallon has amnesia, she believed her brother raped her.  

So Take This Junk and Your Blonde Tramp and Get Out of My Home

I am sure I have mentioned this multiple times, but the final scene from Season 6 when Alexis finally kicks Blake out of the mansion and Blake reacts by trying to kill Alexis is my favorite of the series.  Granted, the scene is ridiculous on so many levels.  But, that is what makes it awesome.

Season 6 started off poorly with too much about Moldavia, Galen and Prince Michael as well as the ridiculous Krystle/Rita story line that never seemed to end.  Once those two stories were wrapped up, the season took off and the second half of Season 6 was just got as great as seasons 3-5.  The additions of Ben and Caress were the boosts the show needed.

However, it was the intensity of the battle between Blake and Alexis that made things great.  Blake finally decides he is going to destroy Alexis once and for all, only to go overboard (despite the protestations of Krystle).  In the end, and through manipulation, Alexis manages the upper hand.

Granted, you just cannot kick someone out of their home with no notice.  There is this thing called the legal process, but why allow for that when you can have Alexis dropping Krystle's furs onto the ground.  Another great aspect is that it is obvious that Joan Collin's stunt double is used when Blake lunges for Alexis.

The only problem with the scene is that it puts Season 7 in a difficult position.  Of course, Blake is not going to kill Alexis.  But, then what.  First we have Blake start over and then he finally gets the upper hand against Alexis and Ben to get his holdings and the mansion back.  That is all fine and dandy - but then what.  It would ridiculous to have Alexis return everything just to have her try and take them back again.  Thus, Season 7 drags on in some sort of tedious family drama that was very un-Dynasty like and which pretty much signaled the demise of the show.  (Season 9 withstanding - which was too little, too late).

Even Worms Can Procreate

This scene is all around great from Alexis bossing around the staff for some caviar hors d'oeuvres to the first hints of Amanda.  Amazing how Alexis could so easily forget about Adam being kidnapped and then giving birth to Amanda.  

Granted, everyone forgot Amanda pretty quickly when she went to England to think.

Blake, always good to see you - particularly on your abdication day

This excellent scene comes from Episode 56 "The Vote".  This is probably one of the best episodes in the series as we get a conflicting view of Alexis as the successful business woman who does not need the help of ungrateful men, except to give her water.  At the same time, we see Alexis as being lazy as she claims to end her workday at 6.  Even more damaging, it appears that Alexis is forcing the merger between Colby Co and Denver Carrington because she really wants to re-merge her life with Blake.

Yes, this feminist icon is doing all this for a love of a man.  Contrast this scene with the final scene of the episode where Alexis invites Blake over to pretty much seduce him.  When Blake rejects Alexis, she become enraged and swears her hatred of Blake.  In fact, it is Blake's rejection of her which causes her to attack Blake.  Definitely, not pro-feminist.
