The primetime soap's fifth season picks up where season four left off: Fallon vanishes following a traffic accident and Dex and Steven bail Alexis out of jail. Eventually Alexis is exonerated before her secret daughter Amanda comes to town and learns that Blake is her father. After Sammy Jo is ordered to leave the mansion, she kidnaps her own son. Later, she finds out that she is the heiress to a huge fortune. Steven meanwhile marries Claudia but ends up leaving her for a man. At the end of the season, Fallon returns with amnesia while the rest of the family travels to Europe for Amanda's wedding to Prince Michael of Moldavia. In one of the most famous cliff hangers of the series, the season finale finds Dex being kidnapped by Yuri and his gang as Amanda and Michael recite their wedding vows. Dex breaks free from his captors and heads for the chapel, where terrorists have opened fire on the entire wedding party.
