— Fallon to Steven about Kirby

The Butler Did It is the third episode of the second season and the twenty-fifth episode overall of the drama television series, Dynasty on The CW. It aired on October 26, 2018.


MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE — Fallon gets in over her head and needs Liam and Culhane's help. Kirby makes a shocking discovery that changes everything, while Blake wines and dines a new guest.



Cristal is uncomfortable when she realizes that Blake sees her as a substitute for his deceased wife. Ada Stone blackmails Michael with the escort's testimony against Fallon. Fallon meets Liam's imperious mother Laura, hoping to win her over, but Fallon eventually eviscerates Laura over her abusive treatment of Liam. Kirby attends court-ordered counseling sessions with Dr. Nick Toscanni, who is secretly working with Alexis to find out what Kirby remembers regarding her banishment from Carrington Manor. Kirby realizes that Alexis started the fire in Fallon's room to get rid of her, and learns that Alexis and Anders had a one-night affair that led to Alexis' pregnancy. Kirby reveals the affair publicly, and Anders confirms that Steven is his biological child, devastating the Carringtons. Now that she believes her baby is no longer a Carrington heir, Melissa admits that Steven is not the father.[2]
