Dynasty has been really gaining steam lately, so I was really disappointed that Dynasty Season 2 Episode 7 turned out to be a more of a filler episode.
Looking back at it, we didn't learn anything new or exciting.
It was just there. Especially following the eventful Thanksgiving themed Dynasty Season 2 Episode 6!
Blake announced his engagement to replacement Cristal after just a few days of knowing her so naturally, the feud between Cristal and Alexis came to a head.
How are these kids not tired of getting a new "step-mom" every year?
Alexis believes psychic Adrianna's prediction that she's meant to be with Blake which explains why she needs to remove Cristal, who is, in her mind, the only obstacle.

But even after Cristal brilliantly outsmarted Alexis and proved that she could go toe-to-toe with her, I still failed to see any value in her character.
Why bring new Cristal on board at all? Is she really just there to fill a void in the cast left behind by Celia?
And doesn't Alexis know that you should never trust Google Translate for accurate translations?
Fallon: Jeff! You're an objective third party. Where do you stand on Whitney covers?
Jeff: Is this a trap?
Permalink: Is this a trap? Added: November 30, 2018 There was a major change in Cristal's appearance following the engagement.
She looked more stylish; her hair, her outfits, even her demeanor, was more luxurious.
However, that doesn't mask that she's not telling the whole truth about wanting to become a part of this family.
And honestly, based on Blake's behavior, he also has ulterior motives.
Again, I'm not sure what either of them is trying to accomplish, but I don't think any of this is about romantic love.
Since their only connection is Celia, maybe it has to do something with her?
Maybe she promised Celia that she would make Alexis' life a living hell if she ever passed?
Regardless, it's getting pretty redundant to have Alexis hate every woman that comes near Blake because she has some warped idea that they are supposed to get back together.
Can you say bitter ex?
Alexis needs a hobby, stat.
Alexis figured out a solution for the baby Hank left at her trailer doorstep fairly quickly, but we knew that's where the story was headed.
Sammy expressed his desire for a child early on in Dynasty Season 2, so there was no doubt that he would take little Blake under his wing.
The name, however, is a bit questionable. As is Sammy's attachment to the child.
If Child Protective Services was called, why would Sammy assume that they'd allow him to become this child's permanent parent?
And really, why would Anders encourage the behavior by assisting in the nanny search?
