Episode 115: Royal Wedding
We have finally reached the Season 5 finale. Again, most of the action takes place in Moldavia especially with almost all the characters in Moldavia. Before that action, let's go over what happen stateside. Well, it is official that Emma Samms is the new Fallon. The opening proves it. There is Emma Samms wearing that red dress that Pamela Sue Martin wore better. No offense to Emma Samms, she just happens to be shorter. Anyway, Fallon returns to the police station in Los Angeles and tells the police that she remembers her names - Randall Adams. That's a good guess.
In New York, Sammy Jo wants Rita to hear Aunty Krystle's voice and to mimic it. For whatever purpose. Rita must really be slow, even for a Southerner. Further proof is that she is slow is that Sammy Jo wants her to mimic that voice and to wear a wig that will make her look like Krystle. Rita met Krystle so she must know what Sammy Jo is trying to pull off. At least, neither Fallon nor Sammy Jo were in Moldavia for the wedding.
That is, if there is going to be a wedding. Of course there will be. Alexis tries to convince Amanda that she is being stubborn and that she should marry Michael even if he did have an indiscretion with Elena. That really is not helpful. Blake realizes there is something wrong when Amanda claims to be sick. Blake confronts Amanda and tells her she needs to grow up. Further, Blake questions Michael and Michael is so sincere in his story that Blake believes Michael is telling the truth and that nothing happened between he and Elena.
Does Amanda need further proof? Elena herself even tells Amanda that Michael did nothing with her. Even if something did happen, King Galen made it perfectly clear to Elena that she needs to tell Amanda that nothing happened. Amanda still is not convinced. Amanda does not re-agree to marry Michael until Michael catches Amanda stopping Dex from leaving and then gets into a fight with Dex. Phew, it is a good thing that Amanda changed her mind the day before the wedding.
Why was Dex leaving? Because, he caught Alexis and King Galen in a compromising position. Yes, Galen wants to be with Alexis, but Alexis really has done a decent job avoiding his advances. That does not matter to Dex. He cannot believe he got himself wrapped up in this mess. As Dex leaves, he notices that it was kind of late for a wine delivery (and usually the crate will say more than wine). Dex may know too much, so Yuri, head of security, knocks Dex out and has him tied up. Nothing is going to stop their plan.
What is their plan? That will wait because there is a few other items to go over. Lady Ashley still has not given Jeff an answer to his proposal. Dominique tells Lady Ashley that she should go for it because it is rare for a man to want such a commitment. Commitment is not a problem for Jeff. Still, Ashley tells Jeff that she cannot marry him and that she will be returning to Paris alone. Yes!!!! Besides, Jeff needs to go find his true love, Fallon.
Claudia does not appreciate Adam ignoring her just to make Blake happy. Adam assures Claudia that he very much loves her and wants both Claudia and Denver Carrington, even if Blake is not pleased with the pairing. Blake confronts Adam and tells him to end the relationship and Adam agrees. Adam tells Claudia that Blake demanded the two end it but Adam stood up to Blake. What?
Steven is getting a backbone about his homosexuality again. Steven tells Luke that when they get back from the wedding he is going to move into Luke's place with Danny and he does not care what anyone thinks. Luke is very happy and the two hug - about as gay as it will get.
Unless you have lived under a rock for the last 30 years, we all know what happens at the wedding. The ceremony is interrupted by revolutionaries who decide the wedding is the perfect time for a coup d'etat. They are also horrible shots. At least we see Lady Ashley get it. Michael appears to get shot in the shoulder, the same with Galen. Dex arrives a little too late but does manage a gun battle with Yuri, and the gun goes off but who was shot. Who was shot in deed? The scene ends with everyone playing dead, maybe they are asleep, who knows? You'll have to wait until next season to find out.
