Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • The character of Miles Colby was originally to be called Max. However, the producers changed the character's name in order to avoid confusion with actor Maxwell Caulfield, who played Miles.

    • This is the only episode of the series not to feature the Carrington Mansion. In fact the city of Denver, Colorado is not featured at all in this episode, which takes place in Moldavia, New York and Los Angeles.

    • Goof: In the fifth season finale, Prince Michael had originally been shot in the chest, but in this season premiere episode, he had apparently only been shot in the arm.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Luke: "Steven... I'm going to die, Steven."
      Steven: "I don't want to hear that, you understand?!"
      Luke: "I know it. You know it. So let me just say what I'm going to say: Try not to forget me, what we had, too soon."
      Steven: "I'll never forget you. Never. Tell me you believe me."
      Luke: "I believe it. ...Steven? Can you get me a blanket? I'm cold."
      Steven: (taking off his jacket, putting it over Luke) "There. Is that better? Luke? Luke? Luke! Luke! Luke!" (by Luke's lifeless body, breaking down)
      Blake: "I'm sorry, Steven."
      Steven: "I want to be alone with him."
      Blake: "I'll be near by if you need me."
      Steven: (to Luke) "Be warm. And sleep. I love you, Luke. I love you."

  • NOTES (5)

    • Bill Campbell makes his final appearance as Steven's gay lover Luke Fuller in this episode. The actor reportedly decided to leave the show on his own as he did not want to be typecast as homosexual.

    • At the end of the series' fifth season, Dynasty reached the #1 spot in the Nielsen ratings. However, beginning with this episode, the show's ratings began to drop dramatically, reflecting viewer's disappointment with the show and its storylines.

    • Joan Collins ("Alexis") does not appear in this episode. When production started for this season, Joan Collins ("Alexis") and the producers were in a contract dispute so they wrote her out of this episode. Originally, Krystle's kidnapping in this episode was supposed to have happened to Alexis.

    • Heather Locklear becomes a regular once again on Dynasty beginning with this episode. From 1982-1985, Locklear starred on another ABC series, T.J. Hooker, while making occasional appearances on Dynasty. During this seaosn, she continued to appear on T.J. Hooker and Dynasty concurrently as a regular of both series.
