  • Notes

    • This is the first of four episodes that had already been filmed according to a radically different script. Joel was supposed to have escaped with Krystle to South America and Alexis was supposed to have become the Queen of Moldavia following King Galen's successful return to the throne. Both storylines were scrapped, four filmed episodes were dumped and additional five scripts were rewritten as scriptwriters and producers worked frantically during Christmas 1985 to save the sinking "Dynasty".

    • Although "the coronation of Alexis" never made it to the air, images from the scene were published in the tabloids and entertainment press much to the dismay of avid "Dynasty" fans.

    • George Hamilton (Joel) departs the cast and makes his final appearance on the show.

    • Linda Evans (Krystle) makes her final appearance as Krystle's double, Rita.
