  • Prior to the cancellation of the series, Joan Collins (Alexis) and Michael Nader (Dex) had announced their departures from the series, which explains their tumble over the balcony. An alternate version of this scene had been shot with Sable also being pushed off the balcony.
  • If Dynasty had been renewed, Diahann Carroll (Dominique) was rumored to have rejoined the cast. Note the numerous references to Dominique leading up to the final episode, including her aunt and uncle.
  • In the final episode, the crooked police captain meets with a mysterious woman who rides in a limousine. Who could it have been? Rumors say Lauren Hutton lend her voice to the woman (whose family name is "Elias" according to the script).
