* ArcFatigue: Krystle's kidnapping storyline in season 6 spanned over 13 episodes (nearly half the season), with increasingly frustrating results.



* GrowingTheBeard: When Alexis and the new writers appeared.
* MagnificentBitch: ''Alexis''. Total RichBitch. So fun to watch on-screen.

* AssPull: The "Moldavian Massacre" conclusion, resulting in only [[spoiler: Steven's lover Luke and Lady Ashley Mitchell]] being the only major casualties of the massacre. It's not surprising that the show steadily dropped in ratings in the remaining years of the show, after this.



* EnsembleDarkhorse: Creator/JoanCollins' scenery chewing glee as Alexis has become such an iconic part of the show's image that it's a bit hard to believe she didn't show up until season 2.

Added DiffLines:

* SeasonalRot: After the "Moldavian Massacre", there was no way that the show could top itself in terms of {{cliffhanger}}s, and new storylines. The show's declining ratings reflected the show's rot.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: In the late 1980s this was the most popular TV series in Yugoslavia. It was broadcast every Monday at 9pm, and the streets were empty.

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: The catfight in the pond is this for a lot of fans. It's also one of the most parodied soap opera scenes ever.
