  • Krystle vs Alexis. Round 1!

    10
    This episode is mostly remembered for the first brawl between Krystle and Alexis, and it still lives up to the hype. Yes, the beginning is hilarious (Alexis slaps walk her couch?), and yes, it's obvious when we are seeing stunt doubles, but it's still a classic, fun fight.



    And there is lots going on in the rest of the episode well, to keep people intrigued pre and post-catfight too.
  • Fallon prematurely goes into labor, Sammy Jo gets paid off and Krystle's war with Alexis leads to an all-out brawl.

    10
    Despite all the other plots going on in this episode, "The Baby" is most notable because it features - after months of tension - the very first catfight between Krystle and Alexis. Season Three's lily pond fight gets all the glory, but it's this original contretemps in Alexis' studio that's the best. So what if there are stunt doubles wearing not-very-convincing wigs throughout half of it? That's part of the charm. The fight is the culmination of months of tension, and that's what makes it so enjoyable. I can't imagine a show waiting so long today to let things boil over, but back in 1982, it was a perfect climax.



    Truly one of the classic episodes, this is how television should be.moreless
  • After Fallon gives birth prematurely to Little Blake , Alexis takes advantage of the opportunity to rub in Krytle's face that Fallon gave Blake what she couldn't. But is later dismissed after being insulted by Fallon.moreless
