    I think it was @Grant Jennings who had predicted something like this for the season finale. Or maybe they stole his idea!

    I wonder if Mac will 're-surface' in the background as part of the cliffhanger? That would be hilariously macabre.

    Celia/Cristal was the best character on the show, she brought the show to another level that the show won't ever reach again until they bring her back or someone like her back.

    Fallon is clearly the main character of the show, I mean who can blame them, but who is she without someone like Cristal 1.0 challenging her to leave her spoiled and bratty behaviors behind? Now all she does is run around with every other word from her mouth either being "Liam", "Michael", or "Culhane". She was a woman who came from a hard upbringing that understood the greed and corruption in the Carrington family and she sought to do something about it. When she died, Dynasty 2.0 just became a show about rich people and their drama. We already had the original Dynasty for that and there are now a million more shows where rich people do rich people things and be dramatic about it. Everything is lifeless and outdated without Cristal 1.0.

    You put exactly into words what Ive been trying to say, every character worked so perfectly with her because she was the contrast, tortured soul working her way up. Especially her bond with fallon, right when they respect eachother she dies. So sad shell never return, Cristal 2 is a joke in comparisn

    Agree. It was fine with the original Cristal. Also, they had to recast Alexis by having the same actress as Fallon play her. YUCK! The finale for next week, the promo is so tame. That's not good for a season finale promo. Doesn't tell much. No suspense. No shocks. Nothing. The whole production crew is not good. The writing is okay. But whoever is making choices for axing characters and recasting, et. and the promo for next week's finale...not good. It's gonna lose more viewers.

    NK leaving really ruined a show that was already tanking. I think there was more drama behind the scenes than onscreen with the actress leaving......
