I Hardly Recognized You
Guilt is for Insecure People
WHAT’S IN A NAME? — When it’s discovered that Matthew’s “accidental” death may have involved foul play, the spotlight falls on the Carringtons themselves. The family must swallow their own suspicions of each other and close rank to defend the clan.

Despite their efforts, everything comes to an emotional head at Matthew’s funeral.

Cristal: You didn't think to tell me you were married.
Matthew: I didn't tell you about her, because I'm leaving her.
Cristal: (cries) Why would you lie to me?
Matthew: Life's complicated. Lying, lying is easy. You just spit it out, and kick sand over it.
Fallon: Morning, starshine!
Steven: You're chipper today.
Fallon: Oh, just catching up on news.
"Head over heels on Carrington Manor."
"Down goes the bride."
"Carrington PR flop."
Steven: Quick question - is there a cactus where your heart should be?
Fallon: What's up your ass this morning?
(Sam walks in) Hmm.. Never mind!
Sammy Jo: I'm just going to have one more croissant!
Blake: Did you think it appropriate to have a guest over?
Steven: That's Cristal's nephew!
Blake: ...Right...She mentioned that...
Blake: We need to come together to protect our family.
Cristal: You mean our business.
Fallon & Blake: Same thing.
(While walking away, Cristal pushes Fallon into an empty grave)
Fallon: You bitch! You're gonna wish you buried me!
