Dynasty's 200th Episode Party

You may remember the 150th Dynasty episode party video (1986) from my YouTube channel (you can check it out again after the jump). Two years later, in the fall of 1988, the cast got together again to celebrate reaching their ultimate milestone.

Although the 200th episode of Dynasty was one of the show's final installments to feature Linda Evans she already appears to be absent from the celebration. 

The actress filmed her final episode shortly before Christmas 1988 and bid farewell to her co-stars at a special dinner party.

At this point Dynasty was doing so badly in its new timeslot on Thursday nights, the cast was still waiting to hear if they would get to do a full season of 22 episodes.

Just before Christmas, ABC decided to order "the back nine" and bring the full episode total to 217 (or 220, if you count "Pilot" and "The Titans" as 5 instead of 2 episodes).

Here are now a couple of images and the video from the show's 150th party which was held on "The Carlton" set which Aaron Spelling bought in 1986 (previously it had been used for the movie "Cluedo").
