Alas, it is true. This episode is the de facto season finale of our beloved Dynasty thanks to the pandemic.
And while not ending on a high note, you can at least rest easy that the CW didn’t try to chop together some rushed, Pushing Daisies Season 2 finale-esque bullshit.
Aww. Now I’m sad about Dynasty, and about Pushing Daisies.
Let’s hear it for Culhane, who comes in at the end of the episode and steals the jush factor in a major and delicious upset.
Kirby is there, too. Looking fucking flawless.
Oh, and Blake is kidnapped and Sam saves him with the help of Danny Trejo or whatever.
But look at Kirby!
I’ve gotta say, I was getting my absolute life this episode. I wrote the phrase “Fuck, I love Dynasty” in my notes more than once.
Even dear Cristal got to shine this episode.
Dynasty is my one shining light against the apocalypse that is 2020 so far.
Did you really think Dynasty could get everyone into a courtroom and then resist trotting out the Alexis reveal?
And I’m so glad for their lack of willpower. Because it is camp, bitch.
Still kinda waiting for Nathalie Kelley to jump out of a box, though. That would be the gag of the entire series.
It was going to be a tough ask to compete with the Thanksgiving episodes of seasons past (could anything ever out-gay the Wizard of Oz fantasy sequence?), and this episode sadly doesn’t live up to those standards.
But goddamn, the closing scene got me in what I will happily proclaim is the gag of the season.
And with dreamy bedroom eyes Liam opening the episode, it’s not a bad sandwich. The turkey’s just a little dry in the middle. That’s all.
I’m sensing a caption theme this week.
Also, I just want to say that I was almost going to suggest Kelly Rutherford would be the historical alliance president last week, but I hesitated because I thought it wouldn’t make much sense to bring her back if Steven isn’t here.
And it doesn’t. But goddamn, she is still a blast to have around.
Maybe we could bring Steven back, too, though? Just saying.
