Season Summary


WHERE'S THERE'S A WILL, THERE'S A WAR — Off the first season's shocking finale and fatal fire, the resilient Carringtons will rise from the ashes to redefine themselves after a major personal loss, as well as the sale of their family's company. Determined to prove herself the savior of their empire, the cunning and charismatic Fallon (Elizabeth Gillies) will attempt to rebrand her family's dynasty, but a twenty-five year old in charge of liquid billions just might turn out to be a disastrous combination. Almost as disastrous as Fallon's romances... She finds herself falling in love with a man whose family is wealthier and crazier than her own and of whom Blake (Grant Show) does not approve. Nor does Alexis (Nicollette Sheridan), who will find new ways to meddle in her daughter's life as only a mother can. Meanwhile, the rivalry between the Colbys and Carringtons heats up, and the families embark on Atlanta's most outrageous pissing contest, causing new Colbys to come out of the woodwork, namely Blake's half-sister, the iconic Dominique Deveraux, and the arrival of Anders' (Alan Dale) daughter threatens to shake things up when she unpacks her trunk-load of secrets about the Carrington family. Despite all of these rocky relationships, and even more surprise guests slated to rear their heads in Season Two, the Carringtons will once again prove that blood is thicker than oil, and that there's nothing like the diamond-encrusted ties that bind.

In a review of the first nine episodes, Hidden Remote critic Georgia Makitalo gave the second season a letter grade of a B, noting that it's "more for the bigger story that I believe the writers are setting up for viewers," and that the grade could drop to a D if the storylines do not improve soon. Praise was given to the stunning and campy scenes that "make the show worth watching," such as The Great Gatsby inspired party and the Wizard of Oz dream sequence. Criticism was geared toward the lack of direction since selling Carrington Atlantic, noting that "Fallon needs something to do," as well as the Colbys' lack of screentime.

Makitalo was also disappointed in Alexis' development in the second season, stating:

Elizabeth Gillies is the clear star of the reboot, although it appears that the producers believe it is Nicollette Sheridan. While the former Desperate Housewives star brings a lot of gravitas and camp to the CW show, the writers have failed her as well. Alexis clearly has a back story that they have failed to uncover. Thus, Alexis is hardly sympathetic, and they are wasting Sheridan's exceptional talents.[85]
