Fallon starts moving on in business and love, just in time for Dynasty to refresh Liam’s memory. But has the Falliam ship officially sailed?
No one could have seen this irony coming, except for Dynasty viewers and Alanis Morissette. After Fallon writes off any chances of a reunion with Liam and flirts with a new romance with Evan, a relic from the past jolts Liam’s memory into motion. But he may have remembered the Falliam glory days too late for a second shot with Fallon. How’s that for timing?
Beyond the Falliam of it all, Sam’s grand opening party for La Mirage sets the stage for Dominique’s master plan and Kirby’s unfortunate undoing. From powerful to powerless, we’re ranking Carrington manor’s best and brightest on their quest for control. Here’s how the power struggle stacked up in the latest episode of Dynasty Season 3. (Warning: Spoilers ahead!)
How could Cristal blackmail a judge into stepping down and not top the leaderboard? She’s making power moves left and right, the legalities of which we won’t get into, and it’s mesmerizing to watch. Although, we do have to dock Cristal a few points for using a photo of her own brother and the judge’s son as leverage.
Threatening to out someone else’s sexuality isn’t ever a good look, and it’s especially unflattering on Cristal. That infraction aside, she’s on her way to claiming the Carrington crown.
What a marvelous comeback for Fallon! With Liam out of the picture (mostly), she snaps out of her haze and remembers who she is. Suddenly, she’s prepared to declare war on Kirby to get Femperial back at all costs.

She leans on Evan, Trixie’s hot lawyer brother, and more than sparks fly between them. He finds a loophole to kick Kirby out of the Femperial office, which doesn’t belong to the company.
During Sam’s grand opening, Fallon further sabotages Kirby by getting her drunk in front of a prospective CEO. But… she was doing it all for Liam. She’ll really have power if she actually buries the hatchet with Kirby.
Speaking of Evan, Fallon had a big week. While pretending not to find Liam’s passport to keep him in her pocket, she fans the flames of her flirtation with Evan. She’s economical that way. Always have a backup locked and loaded.
But a funny thing happens when Fallon drops off a box of Liam’s belongings and severs the ties: He picks up the masquerade mask from last season and seemingly remembers his love for Fallon. It’s too late for that revelation, given Fallon moved on with Evan. Time will tell if Liam acts on his memory and if the Falliam ship has officially sailed.
At long last, we meet part of Dominique’s secret family. Vanessa, her stepdaughter, arrives in Atlanta and poses as the bartender at La Mirage, Sam’s hotel. However, she’s working with Dominique, a former music manager, to land a deal on Monica’s label and prime promotion on Jeff’s recently acquired streaming service.
So, this is what Dominique has been up to. Mama Colby also notches a win by getting back in Jeff’s good graces. He may have seen through her plan with Vanessa (without realizing the familial connection), but he opens up about his diagnosis. Trust re-earned.

Let’s talk about Adam. Something about him not being able to see (from a freak gas explosion accident) makes him all the more palatable. One sense down, it’s easier to have empathy — the slightest bit! — for him and his severe daddy issues, as pointed out by his new therapist Nadia. Now, even though he’s still desperate and all over the place, he’s in an interesting place of vulnerability and has a new ally in Nadia, who’s onto Cristal’s plot to oust Adam.
This is officially a Nadia stan forum, to be honest. But Adam’s power has risen with the fall of his eyesight. You love to see it, even though Adam can’t.
A friendly reminder about Jeff: He knows what he’s doing. Sure, he might have been pretty, uh, dumb in the past, but he’s wised up with so many people coming at him these past two seasons. Case in point, he completely saw through Dominique’s music manager strategy. (Just wait until he finds out she’s a music momager…)
Also, he’s somehow landed Fallon’s care, which is a hard thing to get, not everyone has that. And not for nothing, but there’s no way he’s not working Dominique by telling her about his health issues. Right? He’d better work this angle before she works him.
Culhane finds out Kirby slept with Victor, which he doesn’t love. He also doesn’t love Victor’s photo with Ashanti popping up on social media like a siren song to the gang looking to Tonya Harding him. Of course, Victor’s leg get popped with a bat before Culhane scares them off.
Do we trust Evan? He even reiterated how he sought revenge on Fallon by destroying her community service garden. Who’s to say he’s not pretending to romance her to continue to seek revenge, providing the perfect opportunity for Liam to come to her rescue?
did Ashanti so dirty. Poisoned by Vanessa, getting sick off camera, zero shot with Victor, and no performance? At least she has a free room at La Mirage for life. #JusticeForAshanti
