SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t seen Friday night’s episode of “Dynasty” and the huge game-changing twist it contained, then be warned that spoilers await.
“Dynasty” fans were stunned and saddened when Nicollette Sheridan announced she’d be leaving the show, revealing in a statement she wanted “to spend precious time with my terminally ill mother,” hoping “that my fans will embrace my successor with as much passion as they embraced me.”
In Sheridan’s final episode, her character — devious Alexis Carrington — was pushed into a burning fireplace, burning her face and setting the stage for plastic surgery that would explain the casting of a new actress in a role.
In Friday’s episode of the CW series, viewers finally caught their first glimpse of Alexis post-surgery in a dramatic scene when a nurse removes the bandages from her face for a shocking reveal that nobody saw coming.
That’s right: Alexis’ new face is that of her own daughter, Fallon, with actress Elizabeth Gillies apparently now playing both roles on the show thanks to the bonkers plot twist.
