MONDO EXTRAS

Dynasty: “Royal Wedding”

Cut to Amanda incredulously asking, "And you really believed him?" "Yes...he just thought you might want to blend something." Oh, wait. That was in Father Of The Bride. Blake actually just tells her he did believe Michael. She argues that she saw Michael and Elena together, but we get the beginning tinkles of Fairy Tale Music of Possible Forgiveness. Michael's convinced Blake, blah blah blah boringcakes. She smiles: "Daddee, did Fallon ever give you this much trouble?" He chuckles and replies, "You know, you two were very much alike." So much, in fact, that one was used to fairly easily replace the other on the show, expect not really because Pamela Sue Martin was awesome. And though I have a soft spot for Catherine Oxenberg and her British pout, she is no Pamela Sue Martin. They are now smiling and happy as they think of poor, dead Fallon. "Now, as for giving me trouble, as far as my daughters were concerned there was no such word. There are those who might call it failing, but if it is, I guess I'll just have to live with it." They laugh and gaze at each other lovingly. Blake: "Remember, darling, whatever you decide, you're going to have to live with that, too." They've turned the use of the word "darling" into an art form on this show.

Outside, there's a spectacular volleyball game going on. It's all short shorts, tube socks, flouncy hair and...yes it is, ladies and gentlemen. A tank top. Ashley is nearby, dipping lemon in her water and looking out of place. Dominique comes out to join her, and Ashley greets her, in her poncey way, "Dome-ee-neek." Dom senses that something is wrong and asks Ashley about it; Ashley reveals that Jeff proposed to her the night before. Without batting an eye, Dominique replies, "And you said?" Ashley replies, "That I needed time. That I'd think it over." "Which really means NO, Ashley," says Dominique. And with that, I would like to thank Dominique for finally being a voice of reason where one is so often absent. Ashley gets all introspective: "A long time ago, Jeff fell in love with a sophisticated older woman, and I was very attracted to a beautiful young man. We were lucky; we got to live out our fantasy. But will that fantasy survive the test of reality, of time?" Why not? You only tried to seduce his ex-father-in-law/father figure in between the supposed initial attraction and current affair. That's the original Recipe for Success! Ashley bores me the rest of this scene. She's all floaty and contemplating her ice water and lemon. Dominique, who I first thought was going to knock some sense into her, instead tries to tell her how theirs is a rare and true love, since "so few people are making a real commitment." Dominique, I must say, is making a commitment to coral lipstick the likes of which I've never seen before. Ashley doesn't know. She appears to hope the lemon will give her clarity.
