Dominique appeared on the original series, so her arrival is a big deal for fans who watched that show and the updated one. 

Everyone has an agenda on Dynasty, so there's a good chance there's going to be a power struggle between Dominique and her children.

Michele's casting dropped around the same time Nicollette Sheridan confirmed her exit as Alexis Carrington. 

If you watch Dynasty online, you know that Liz Gillies was recently revealed to be taking on the role of Alexis, in addition to the role of Fallon.

It remains to be seen whether Dominique and Alexis will team up to wreak havoc for everyone, or if they will be adversaries. 

Either way, Dominique's arrival is sure to shake up the show like never before. We're going to assume Jeff's mysterious illness has got to be bad if his mother appears on the scene.
