Synopsis

There is good news and bad news for Denver oil tycoon Blake Carrington (John Forsythe) as Dynasty launches its first season. The good news is that Blake is about to wed his former secretary, Krystle Jennings (Linda Evans); the bad news is that the Carrington oil empire is teetering on the edge of bankruptcy, thanks to a major Mideast political crisis. And there's more trouble in store for Blake as the season progresses. Breezing into town to express their disapproval of his marriage are Carrington's children by a previous marriage: bisexual family "black sheep" Steven Carrington (Al Corley) and rapacious Fallon Carrington (Pamela Sue Martin), who will apparently sleep with anything in trousers. As Steven causes profound embarrassment for his major dad via his romance with boyfriend Ted, Fallon is besmirching the family name by fooling around with her sleazy chauffeur Michael, and later outrages her dad by marrying Jeff Colby (John James), the son of Carrington's hated business rival Cecil Colby (Lloyd Bochner). Meanwhile, Krystle's ex-lover Matthew Blaisdel (Bo Hopkins) hopes to win back his sweetie before the marriage -- and never mind that Matthew is employed as Blake's head geologist. As for Matthew's unstable wife, Claudia (Pamela Bellwood), she has taken it upon herself to "straighten out" the sexually confused Steven Carrington. On top of all this, the Blake-Krystle nuptials are nearly ruined when another of Blake's rivals, wildcatter Walter Lankershim (Dale Robertson), interrupts the ceremony with a shotgun. Season one ends on a cliffhanger, as Blake stands trial for the murder of Steven's lover Ted -- and a mysterious veiled lady appears out of nowhere as a witness for the prosecution. ~ Hal Erickson
