Notes and Spoilers


  • There are references to the 1980s Dynasty in this episode.
    • Ben Carrington (Brett Tucker) debuts in this episode as Blake's estranged brother. Ben was a major antagonist in the sixth and seventh seasons of the original series. He was first established in "Parisian Legend Has It...", an easter egg left to be expanded upon in the future seasons of the reboot.
    • Samir Dexter appears in this episode as Dex's father. In the original series, Dex's father was Samuel Dexter. Sam's business connections and established relationship with Blake in the original series is maintained in the reboot.
    • Alexis' wedding dress and Dex's wedding suit pay homage to the outfits that Joan Collins and Michael Nader wore in the 1980s series.
    • The score from the original series is used at the end of the episode to dramatize Ben's introduction to the series.
    • The dress that Fallon wears to the wedding is a callback to the dress Fallon wore to Blake and Cristal's wedding in the first episode of the reboot. That dress paid homage to the dress that Fallon wore to Blake and Krystle's wedding in the original series.
    • The King Galen of Moldavia is mentioned in this episode, a character from the original series. With Alexis' wedding being the focus of the episode, this could potentially allude to the idea of the Moldavian Massacre from the original series in which Amanda's wedding to the Prince of Moldavia leads to a mass shooting.
  • Dominique mentioned a person named Val Gibson, this might be a reference to Valene Ewing Gibson, a famous character from the 1980s soap operas Dallas and Knots Landing that were competitors of the original Dynasty.
  • This is the first episode to use the full theme since "Go Catch Your Horse".
  • The title of the episode is said in this episode by Blake Carrington.
