    When the "Krystle doppleganger" plot finally ended, Blake and Krystle both learned Sammy Joe's role in the scheme. I thought they let her off way too easy, even though she did have a change of heart at the eleventh hour and saved Blake. Imho, Blake should have let Krystle decide SJ's punishment, and would have liked to see a less saintly side of Mrs. Carrington. She could have SJ move put of the mansion, get an honest job and do some community service once a week, such as work in a shelter for homeless women. Have SJ lead an unglamorous life living on a very modest salary. Krystke would keep in touch with her, but no free rich people's food or for coats from the mansion. SJ would have to comply or go to jail.
    Ok, that might be a little boring. Instead, Blake and Krystle never find out because Adam learns of it and covers up for her. He holds ot over her head, and she is beholden to him. And Adam is a ruthless debtholder.
    Any other ideas for Sammy Joe's comeuppance?

    That would have been a more interesting way to get away with it.
    And if they wanted to change Sammy Jo's personality then this would have been a good excuse, because now she's the one who needs to be saved.
    It would have been easier to digest if she had suffered a little (and a little bit more than "no fur coats for you, missy!")

    Yes, I definitely agree. Part of me wanted to see a traumatized Krystle do something different than just forgive with a slap on the wrist.
    Adam contr9 Sammy Joe has a lot of possibilities.

    I've always wanted Adam -- peripherally, at least -- to be involved in Krystle's hostage situation, maybe finding out about it after the fact. Once Krystle's out of the attic, and Sammy Jo swears she just "found out" about the kidnapping by chance, perhaps Krystle can overhear Adam and Sammy Jo discuss it in some corner of the mansion (like that scene between Nick and Fallon in the library during late-Season 2, and after they exit, Krystle stands up from a wing chair no one knew she was in).

    Krystle could keep secret what she knows with the provision that Sammy Jo and Adam work for the poor or give their time at the drug center downtown. :lol:

    Later, Adam tries to implicate Alexis in the kidnapping when he's on the outs with her.

    I also don't think I'd have Joel and Rita's car found until months later, after Blake and Krystle's limo gets run off the road, and it turns out Joel and Rita's vehicle, and their remains, are only a few yards below where the Carrington limo landed, obscured by brush and foliage. That deadly Scorpio Curve, dontchya know.

    This is wonderful, Snarky! If NuDynasty on CW was smart they'd hire you as a show runner:bravo1:

    I mean, this has always just been bad writing - they just wanted to drop the plot and never speak of it again. Of course, most agree that the Rita plot wall ill-concieved but it doesn't mean that there couldn't be meaningful consequences of it. I do like the idea of Adam bailing Sammy Jo out of the situation and holding it over her head.

    Which one? The one from the 90s, or the reboot?
