Info Alert Edit

  • Claire Yarlett (Bliss) does not appear in this episode.
  • An uncredited Kevin McCarthy and Molly Carter appear as Lucas Carter and Little Channing in the same flashback seen in The Gala (1986).
  • Two other cliffhangers were never resolved, even though the characters involved in those storylines would later appear in Dynasty or Dynasty: The Reunion. The first involved the apparent kidnapping of Monica's son, Scott, by Sable in the final episode. However, when both Sable and Monica crossed over to Dynasty, no mention was made of Monica's son, Scott. The second involved the fate of Miles' wife Channing and their unborn child, as Channing left Miles in the final episode and planned to have an abortion. However, when Miles re-appeared in Dynasty: The Reunion, there was no mention of Channing or the unborn child, as Miles was now single and engaged to his ex-wife Fallon.
