Overview

Synopsis

Laid low by progressively weaker ratings, Dynasty discreetly left the scene at the end of its ninth season. But though viewership was down, the series' entertainment content was as high as ever, thanks in large part to a lengthy murder-investigation storyline. It all begins when the mummified body of Roger Grimes, former lover of the scheming Alexis Carrington Colby (Joan Collins), turns up on the estate of Alexis' ex-husband Blake (John Forsythe) and his current spouse, Krystle (Linda Evans). Investigating the case is detective Sergeant Zorelli (Ray Abruzzo), who like so many poor saps before him ends up in bed with Blake's predatory daughter Fallon (Emma Samms). Meanwhile, spiteful Alexis tries to frame Blake for the murder, only to be undermined by the vengeful hijinks of the vixenish Sable (Stephanie Beacham), an Alexis-like character first introduced on the Dynasty spin-off The Colbys. In a later development, Krystle abruptly lapses into a coma and is shipped off to a hospital in Switzerland -- as good a method as any to allow co-star Linda Evans to leave the series halfway through the season. Curiously, the series ends on another cliffhanger, without bothering to tie up any loose plot strands -- such as the ultimate fate of Alexis after she plunges from a high window. Fans would have to wait nearly three years before the "official," two-hour Dynasty denouement special in 1991. ~ Hal Erickson
