The fifth season is one of my personal favourites, although in true DYNASTY style, it has divided fans for years. Producers brought in a new supervising writer, Camille Marchetta (who'd previously worked on the first few *good* years of "Dallas", including the J.R. shooting storyline) and Marchetta gave the characters bold and exciting new directions in some of DYNASTY's best stories to date. Not content to keep the action squarely in Denver, in this season the characters travel everywhere from Bolivia, Acapulco, London and Paris. The gamble paid off, and DYNASTY was rating through the roof by the time of the season finale that year (with sixty million tuning in).
Jailed for the murder of Mark Jennings, the first few episodes this season focus on the trial of Alexis (Joan Collins) and the events which cause another face from her past to suddenly re-appear in Denver... She and Dex (Michael Nader) later tie the knot in England but it's never going to be plain sailing for this unlikely pair...despite their mutual love of eating caviar for breakfast.
Krystle (Linda Evans) finally gives Blake (John Forsythe) a child and you'd think that the golden Carrington couple couldn't be happier...think again! Baby Krystina (aka "Kwythteena" to the diehard fans) is born prematurely--there's never a simple birth in DYNASTY Land--and it's touch-and-go for a while.Read more ›
Season 5 was "Dynasty's" best and would mark the year the series became the #1 show in North America as well as globally, being seen by an estimated 150 million people.
During the 1984-1985 television season a series of guest-stars would pop up to fill the gap left by Pamela Sue Martin who quit her role as Fallon Carrington. Among those who made appearances that year would be George Hamilton, Ali McGraw, and Rock Hudson (in his last acting role).
The stories that year dealt with the Carrington's grieving the loss of Fallon (it was discovered she died in a plane crash), Blake and Krystle becoming parents finally, Alexis getting married to sexy Dex Dexter, Sammy Jo trying to gain money from the Carrington's by hiring someone to impersonate Krystle, the arrival of a long-forgotten love child of Blake and Alexis, and the infamous Moldavia wedding and its repercussions.
Like other "Dynasty" boxsets (with the exception of season 1) there are no bonuses, but the episodes are in full frame and come in English mono sound, the way they were originally shown on their ABC run.
The following is a complete list of season 5 episodes along with airdates:
1. "Disappearance", Sept. 26, 1984
2. "The Mortage", Oct. 10, 1984
3. "Fallon", Oct. 17, 1984
