  • One of the best cliffhangers ever

    Despite the bad reputation it has among some fans, the Moldavian Massacre is probably one of the best cliffhangers ever. Unfortunately, people seem to tie the resolution of it with the actual cliffhanger. And yes, the resolution to it is extremely lame, but the actual massacre itself, as seen here, is just awesome.



    Unfortunately, the Golden Era of seasons 2 - 5 does end, and while season 6 has it's moments, the show begins it's decline next season, and never again reaches the marvelous heights of what it used to be. But this episode is a great way to cap off a great run of a great show.moreless

    Wow i have to say that this episode was one hell of an episode. Me never watching the show when it was on the air am in love wityh it. I have seen every episode up to this point. They say that after this point the show went down hill but I will see if they are write or not!!! This was a freat ending and one fo the best cliffhnagers ever IMO. I am very excited to see what happens next. They said that the reason they did this was because most of the main charcters contacts were up and they wanted to gain soe leverage on the actors. Very smart way to do it.moreless

  • QUOTES (0)

  • NOTES (6)

    • One of the alleged reasons for this season of "Dynasty" ending with a terrorist attack was that following five seasons on air, some of the actor's contracts were up for renewal and the producers tried to gain leverage as their characters could easily be written out of the show. Despite these efforts, Joan Collins' salary holdout at the end of the summer, prevented her appearance in the sixth season opener.

    • Many TV critics and fans of "Dynasty" belive this to be the episode when the series "jumped the shark" (television business jargon for a tv-show reaching its peak and going downhill).

    • Scriptwriter Camille Marchetta whose contract for "Dynasty" expired in 1985, credited herself in the press for the original idea to conclude the fith season with the Moldavian massacre cliffhanger, painting her colleagues, who had to conceive the following episode, into a corner.

    • When this episode was repeated prior to the 6th season premiere there appeared to be some editing in the chapel massacre scene to tone down the violence. Some scenes of terrorists spraying gunfire and guests being riddled with bullets were cut. All subsequent airings are this edited version.

    • Emma Samms (Fallon) is added to the opening credits.

    • Ali MacGraw (Lady Ashley) departs the cast and makes her final appearance on the show. According to Star Magazine, MacGraw was shocked to hear her contract had not been renewed for the sixth season. She reportedly learned the news from John Forsythe at the fifth season wrap-party.
