    I'd like this to have happened in Season 8, but perhaps it could have in Season 10?

    Who would you cast as Blake's former fiancée, the one who was sidelined by scheming teen Alexis Morell in the mid-'50s set on snagging an ambitious man with a bright future?

    And would this ex-fiancée be angry at Blake 30 years later, or Alexis?


    "Well... I suppose she was very beautiful at the time. In a common sort of way. If that's your taste... But I hear she's had a lot of work done. And they're saying it isn't good. I really don't know."

    I dunno
    I never assumed she was in the picture pre-Alexis - I always assumed she'd have been with Blake during some of those 16 years when Alexis went away. If anyone chased her away it was probably teen-from-hell Fallon.

    Possibly - Blake was a upcoming businessman at the time so I imagine he might've had others trying to catch his interest, but overcourse Alexis and Mama Morrell made sure he could possibly only have eyes for her.

    Mary Taylor Moore, because she's so famous but I don't know her at all. So I would have liked to see her on Dynasty.

    Maybe she could bring her ninjas with her.
    Like Doris Day (who I'd want as Krystle's mother), Mary couldn't handle the furs.

    I did a 'Dynastier' title card for Mary where I called her "Gretchen Avalanchia" and a member of the Colby** family, but given the way I'd attached the graphic, it disappeared with the thread.


    **Correction: that was the Fallmont family

    I went ahead and voted for Elizabeth Taylor. Just because. :lol:

    Although I also would have voted for Sophia Loren.

    What..what are you saying, Blake?
    I'm sorry Stella, it's over between us. I can't give you the love you deserve, not anymore...I...
    [​IMG]
    It's that Morell girl, isn't it? Yes, it must be her, that bitch, that slut from England! O Blake how could you?
    But I'll forgive you, it wasn't your fault...just give us another chance to...I promise..

    Stella, stop it! It's already been decided and, well...I've asked her to marry me.
    Damn you Blake Carrington, damn you and that whore! *throws vase at Blake*

    Polly Bergen would have been an interesting choice too.

    Or maybe the '50s fiancée Alexis successfully shoved to the side was actually Sable Scott before she'd landed Jason Colby?? Think of the complications that could add to their backstory!

    [​IMG]

    Or even perhaps her mother, Agatha (whom @Willie Oleson named), on the prowl for a new coat of arms following the death of her first husband, Sable's and Frankie's father.

    Thanks for the graphics, @Richard Channing !

    And the complications for season 9. I think it works better when Blake doesn't know her that well. Dynasty's "Sable" should have enough mystery to keep us guessing.

    Cora van Husen however, embittered about the whole idea of love and fidelity, would become Denver's most high-paid whore, and later the madam of her own brothel.
    "If men want love, they're going to pay for it!"
    And as Blake's ex-fiancée, now "everyone's girl", it was also a way to embarrass him, indirectly and kind of retroactively staining the prestigious Carrington name.

    Or something like that:lol:

    That's probably true. But maybe he'd feel like he didn't after all those years.

    Yes, "he turned us all into sluts," Alexis and Cora commiserate.

    Alexis jumps on the victim-bandwagon again. So typical for a natural born jezebel.

    Of course it had to have been Victoria Principal. It was meant to be her show after all.

    I can just hear Alexis referring to her as Blake's one time, soon too be - child bride.

    And perhaps even Papa Morrell. That family of secrets.
