    From the Season 4 finale:



    First of all, what crime did Alycia Aynders commit which got her sent to the crazy house??

    Also, this scene, though fairly good, shows how screwed up and not-character based the writing was --- Kirby was right when she asked "What do I care about Adam...?" (because she indeed didn't love Adam). Alexis should have said something more like, "You care -- you care because you love Jeff, and if I cut off Adam he'll have no choice but to return to Denver-Carrington and try to destroy Jeff there, and indeed he will. And if need be, I'll help him.."

    Sure, Alexis would be lying, but at least that makes more sense than Alexis trying to convince Kirby that she loves a man she doesn't.

    Kill, kill, kill -- that's all Kirby feels inside...



    Palm trees in Denver? It must be hotter and more humid there than I thought, which explains how Alexis' hair suddenly curled after she moved from the nursery to the terrace.

    Were there ever any details? I seem to be recalling nothing.

    Also, I thought Kirby went about her revenge all wrong. She should have gone through with marrying Adam and having kids with him - all because it would have curled the very toenails of Alexis, who'd spend her remaining years writhing in disgust as the grandchildren of Joseph Anders, a mere *servant*, inherited the Carrington estate and the Carrington fortune.

    Come on, who wouldn't want to see what Alexis would do next to get her way in a situation like this?

    Did Kirby orchestrate the vandalism at Alexis' penthouse -- we never found out, did we?
    Funny, I never recall that part of it -- only the asylum.

    I still say that in Season 10, we should find out Kirby might actually be Alexis' daughter via a drunken night with Joseph circa 1961 --- the real reason Alexis want Kirby away from Adam isn't because Kirby isn't one of them but because she is! And incest babies are trouble.

    2017 I think (unless it is 2016)
    I think the show wanted us to believe that Kirby came to want to be with Adam. I mean, she was always attracted to him from the get-go, in that Sabrina scenario she herself had identified in a nice season 3 self-reflective moment. Then she kind of accepted that he was what she deserved--as if having Adam was settling--the bitch!

    Plus it was quite the rage in the 80s to have rapes turn into the cornerstone of a romance. From Luke and Laura on GH to our very own Blake and Krystle.

    I never fully understood why Kirby's mother was so hush-hush. Kirby was an adult person and could handle the truth. Much better than to leave her all alone without ANY parent, and dying for nothing, like Joseph. How many children doesn't have a parent in prison or a parent who committed adultery without going under. Everybody on Dynasty was so incredible sensitive to life.

    I always picture a Season 10 organ loft exchange with Blake and Joseph (Alexis forced him to fake his own death, naturally, then spirited him off to Paris or somewhere -- LOL!) where Joseph confesses his affair with Alexis to Blake and asserts that Kirby is the result of that affair. Alexis, of course, can inquire as to where the story came from and that it's certainly not true, leaving the viewer to wonder forever about her veracity.

    Stevenbot turning into Ben Reynolds, Alexis claiming she's pregnant with Blake's baby after Singapore, Sammy Jo getting a indie film award the same day her porno film is released by Alexis, Krystle becoming psychic healer, Alexis briefly afraid she might be Der Führer's offspring, a vengeful Lindsay Blaisdel appearing on the stand as Blake tries to get his company back, Eva Braun blasting away at Sable and Caress in the final episode starting a fire in the darkened mansion --- I swear, I'd do 'em…. I'd do 'em all.

    Is it so really much worse than what they actually did??

    … And I'd establish that the reason the California Colbys rejected Cecil is that they believed, rightly or wrongly, he'd killed his mother.

    Alexis refers to The Avenue Foch in Paris -- that's exactly what I thought Lady Ashley's surname should be: Lady Foch, instead of the too-GWTW-centric ''Ashley Mitchell."

    With a different actress, too, of course.

    Some of those ideas I never cared for, while the others are good. :)

    I would have had Kirby become obsessed/stalker-ish with Adam, sorta like a karmic punishment for raping her. Especially when he gets with Dana, making their lives hell. :lol:
