Those head injuries really took a toll (and you all know I want Krystle flat-out psychic healer by, say, Season 8) but what could be done, as early as S3 or S4, to convey Krystle's intelligence and strength in a way they just didn't or wouldn't? She worked as Blake's executive assistant for a couple of years, so she must have learned something about business, certainly the oil business, during that time. But we saw no evidence of it. Should she have been in the board room from time to time, just as she briefly was during Blake's S1 trial, threatening the members with removal from their positions? When she was back at Denver-Carrington in the public relations department, they did nothing with it -- the plot seemed solely an effort to fuel the silly Tracy Kendall schemes. Should Krystle have been conversant in art and, perhaps, politics --- an Ohio farm-bred Jackie Kennedy? We're told that Alexis had these skills, but she was too busy insulting people and telling them to get out of her office for us to ever see them.
