This is a big part of the long lasting memory with the fans. B&K:s videos on YT have the most watches and even own collages with a song. And the people who comment have loving memories and feelings about B&K (and the important part Alexis played in it). If the TPTB got what they wanted, B&K would have been another J.R. and Sue Ellen, and who needs that? It is a unique relationship, and one of the things that will grant the show everlasting life, and new generations will follow and love the love story from season one, just to see if the love established early on will truly last. The two actors involved being perfect for the task and with a wonderful on screen chemistry "betwix" (Golden Girls and Blanche Deveroux) them. So the forum's general view on this; a quick fix of drama when it was, would have ruined the long effect of the show and the sublime picture of a couple in the soap universe ready to work on things and see the value of each other, and the underlying meaning in a powerful and closed off man finding new life again in a good woman. When K is a t the airport and is on the go, away from Blake and his world, she says: Yes, back to where people are just what they are, not wearing a dozen faces. This is a key in their romance, Blake had to become a "a one man"-person in order for it to work, and that was a struggle for him. Krystle didn't fit in and that was exactly why she was needed. And a personal anecdote: Several years ago, I was in school and for some reason the conversation turned to TV-shows, and the professor mentioned Dallas and Dynasty of the 80's, and suddenly three(!!) women said: Oh, Blake and Krystle! I laughed on the inside and felt all warm. I leave you in peace with these comments taken from YT: "From Episode 2:Oil Part 2, Blake literally buys out the entire flower shop to apologize to Krystle. Of course these two were known as the love that never dies. They were the only primetime soap couple to stay together through the whole series and not cheat and divorce each other 100 times. They had their huge share of problems but in the end they always worked it out and never stopped loving each other!" "I remember in an interview Alexis was introduced to cause trouble by having an affair with Blake. John Forsythe refused.He said Blake was a total jerk and control freak but his one redeeming trait was a genuine ,unbreakable love for Kyrstle and his children"
