    Exactly. Wasn’t that the Christmas episode? At the end Dominique was enraged that she’d been slighted again and vowed revenge.....but it went nowhere....

    Indeed it was.

    It was one of those surprising moments where they actually based things in what the characters felt and reacted, plus it made Amanda's entrance to serve more of a purpose than being the new Carrington daughter to replace Fallon. So of course they couldn't possibly go anywhere with it. Sigh.

    Amanda became useless in Season 06. Started out strong in 05, but that was it. IMHO, the darker her hair got, the more worthless she became.....

    Yes, that's what I thought at the time, but I knew they'd never think of it, so brain-dead the DYNASTY brass was.

    It took Paulsen to go get her.

    And yet I must say, it worked better having her come in for season 9. She had been away enough that it would not be necessary to have a gazillion explanations for what is happening to her various ties.

    Through all of this, Constance owed Miles and Sable an apology. Her nephew in shining armour Jeff who would come in to steer Colby Enterprises dropped them like a hot potato and never looked back.

    Yup. If she had come right after The Colby's ended you would've expected them to bring up her various storylines on Dynasty, but leaving the character to rest for a season they could believably have those happen off screen and come onto Dynasty as a rebooted character without much luggage from The Colby's. Frankie and Jason could just be brushed off in one sentence, something that wouldn't have felt appropriate if she just came into season 8. Possibly they could've brought her on a few months into season 8, but what on earth would she had done?

    No, the re-introduction in season 9 was perfect I've decided.

    True, but Sable could have brought an energy to the absolutely wretched Season 08, though. Constance was dead, she and Jason were divorced, etc. Sable could have had scenes in the phone to Miles explaining that she just needed to get away from L.A. for awhile.

    By the way @tommie, I must have given up on Melrose by the season from where your Santas photo is taken, but Rob Estes looks super hot here.

    It's from the last season when Frank South was FINALLY fired and the show was mainly helmed by Carol Mendelsohn and Peter Dunne from Knots Landing was brought in as supervising producer.
