How Two-Faced Can You Get?
I am sick and tired of being used by miserably ungrateful men.
— Fallon Carrington

Miserably Ungrateful Men is the sixteenth episode of the second season and the thirty-eighth episode overall of the drama television series, Dynasty on The CW. It aired on March 29, 2019.


PRODIGAL DAUGHTER - When a damaging article is released that threatens the strength of the Carrington reputation, Fallon seeks to get ahead of the narrative by fast-tracking a slate-cleaning memoir. Meanwhile, Blake throws a celebratory party, and Cristal asks Sam to chaperone an intimidating visitor while she attempts to manage a tricky situation.[2]



Alexis is in the hospital with severe facial burns, and under Adam's thumb. Fallon is ostracized after a damaging article is released, and she seeks to repair her reputation by writing a memoir. Cristal resists Beto's demand that she hire one of her father's pet players for the Atlantix, but he refuses to leave Atlanta until she capitulates. Blake has Adam's medical license reinstated and hires him to work under the Atlantix's team doctor, whom Adam sabotages to secure the head doctor position for himself. Jeff visits Alexis and wants her to convalesce in his home, but Adam forces her to stay put. As Alexis is wheeled in for facial reconstructive surgery, Adam hands the doctor a reference photo that raises her eyebrows. Sam catches Beto kissing another man, and convinces him to forgive Cristal for betraying their family. Beto backs down, and gives Cristal a dossier that her father has collected about her and the Carringtons. After overhearing that her publisher is using her to get to Blake, Fallon buys the publishing company and fires him. One of the company's authors arrives to see Fallon, who is surprised to learn that it is Liam.[3]

Fallon: Good thing you're just a hack. Now, get your sorry ass out of my house, now. 
Dale: You have nothing to show for yourself but a string of failures and scandals. Now you want a memoir celebrating your success? Sure, I'm the hack. You're an entitled little rich bitch. 
Fallon: Get out!

Fallon: So, let me get this straight, you're writing a book?
Blake: You can relax. I took a man's business card if that's what you mean. 
Fallon: That book was my opportunity to tell my story. The story about a young girl who always dreamed of growing up to be powerful and respected, just like her father. But as it turns out, I have always lacked the requisite hardware because nobody cares what a woman has to say as long as there's a man willing to give his two cents. 

Blake: I can see that you are emotional. But this isn't about your being a woman. 
Fallon: Wow. Really? Every day I spent with you at C.A helping you build that company, and all of a sudden, Adam shows up, and the prodigal son returns.
Blake: It is one thing for you to damage your own reputation, but now you're bringing down everyone with you. Make this right.

Adam: I can't believe dad would do all this just for me. 
Fallon: Oh, calm down. Last year we threw a party for the dog, and it was better.
