  • The most convincing party

    10
    This episode gives us a strong taste of what DYNASTY could have been like in subsequent years, and briefly was.



    With Blake luring Matthew and Walter to the mansion in order to get his paws on their oil leases, and using Krystle as the key bait, Fallon and Jeff continue their flirtation and troubled Claudia begins her friendship with troubled Steven.



    The last half of the episode is really a comparatively simple dinner party, yet it seems more glamorous and elegant than any of the series' later such party-centric installments because of the basic feel of legitimacy: this is a REAL party attended by REAL people having REAL discussions.



    It's moody and effective.moreless
