Episode Summary

EDIT
Still held captive by the deranged Matthew Blaisdel, Blake and his family wait helplessly as Blaisdel's obsession for Krystle grows dangerously stronger. Witnessing Alexis' car plunge into the river, a handsome and mysterious stranger rescues her from the rushing current. Unaware of the tragedies that face their family, Adam and Dana are on their private jet, en route to their honeymoon paradise. Alone in her bedroom, Blaisdel takes Krystle and reminds her of their past love .for each other, promising things will be that way once again. Fallon's car is found abandoned in the desert. Receiving word of his wife's disappearance, Jeff rushes to the scene. Searching several miles from the car, Jeff finds her unconscious by the side of the road. Allowed to leave the mansion to secure a fortune in cash for Blaisdel's trip back to Peru, Blake overpowers his guard and goes for help. Determined to thank her mysterious rescuer, Alexis finds the man she feels indebted to, but is dismayed by his casual acceptance of her gratitude. Protecting Leslie after she tries to escape, Dex lunges at Matthew. In the ensuing fight, Dex finds an opportunity to run out the door and across the grounds for help. Blaisdel's accomplice steadies his gun and shoots, dropping Dex. Returning to the mansion, with a SWAT team covering him, Blake is terrified to find the mansion empty, except for the shredded remains of Krystina's doll.moreless

      • Starting with this episode the opening credits change a little. Two pictures of the character are featured instead of just the column picture. The column picture still appears with a larger picture of the person behind them. John Forsythe and Linda Evans keep the same column picture since the second season of the show. John James, Gordon Thomson, Jack Coleman, Emma Samms, and Terri Garber are given brand new pictures. Michael Nader, Heather Locklear, and Leann Hunley keep the column pictures they received
        within the previous two seasons. For Joan Collins the column picture from the 1985-1986 season is put in with a clip of her in the bathtub in the back.

      • In the recap of the previous cliffhanger episode, producers inserted a new scene which had never previously aired. In this new clip, Fallon (Emma Samms) telephones her father to inform him that she and Jeff can't make it to Adam's wedding. However, Fallon and Jeff last appeared in "The Colbys" cliffhanger which ended in March 1987, while the "Dynasty" cliffhanger, featuring Adam's wedding, did not air until May 1987.

      • Jessica Player (Krystina Carrington) appears with Linda Evans in the opening credits and will continue to do so until Evans departs the cast in the middle of the next season.

      • Matthew (Bo Hopkins) asks what happened to Fallon but never asks about his past wife, Claudia.

      • Former regular Bo Hopkins (Matthew) guest stars and appears in the opening credits.

      • James Healey joins the cast as Sean Rowan.

      • "The Colbys" stars John James (Jeff) and Emma Samms (Fallon) rejoin the cast, following the cancellation of their series.

      • Beginning with this episode, ABC moved "Dynasty" from its Wednesday 9:00 p.m. time slot to the Wednesday 10:00 p.m. time slot.
