Greetings, everyone. Can you believe it? 100 years. {...} You know, this company has always been like family to me, which is why it was so comforting when so many of you reached out to see how I was doing after the passing of my wife. Thank you. Yeah, I also want to thank my son-in-law Sam. He is a good person with a kind heart, and his aunt would be very proud of him. Thank you. Sometimes, I think that he's too good for this family. After all, not everyone would choose a husband with a baby on the way. And, Steven, maybe now you'll appreciate all the things I've done for you as a father. Am I right, folks? I also want to thank my lovely daughter Fallon, for keeping the company running while I was gone. You see, I was, uh, visiting all the places that my late wife and I wanted to travel to, where I set up charitable foundations in her name. While I was gone, Fallon finally realized, after all these years, what's most important. Yeah, she is in love. Well, Fallon, you reap what you sow. Couldn't make me happier to announce that we are selling C.A. to her husband's family, the Van Kirks. Two family dynasties merging into one. But all good things must come to an end. And that includes my time with the company. That's right. 23 skidoo. I'm getting the hell out. Because the next chapter of my life is gonna be about me. Blake time. {...} Let me tell you something. I intend to spend every dime I have before they put me in the ground, 'cause you can't take it with you, and God knows, my spoiled children don't need any more. So, happy anniversary, everyone. Bite me.

Twenty-Three Skidoo is the season premiere of the second season and the twenty-third episode overall of the drama television series, Dynasty on The CW. It aired on October 12, 2018.


SEASON PREMIERE — On the eve of Carrington Atlantic's 100th anniversary, our splintered family struggles to rise from the ashes to redefine themselves as past mistakes emerge, new alliances are forged, and the fate of the Carringtons' legacy falls squarely on Fallon's shoulders.



A month after the fire, Fallon and Michael have resumed their relationship, but she and Liam pretend to still be married to assure that Liam's uncle Max buys Carrington Atlantic. Cristal has died in the fire, and Blake returns after a month's absence mourning her. Steven has not told Sam about Melissa's pregnancy. Anders keeps his newly-arrived daughter Kirby hidden from the Carringtons. Hank, who is the prime suspect in Cristal's murder, blackmails Alexis, threatening to expose their plan. He also reveals that he started the fire. Blake exposes the truth about Melissa to Sam, who comes to accept the news of the pregnancy. Michael proposes to Fallon, who accepts before flying to New York with Liam to meet the Van Kirks. Blake berates Alexis for her shameless gold digging, and they fall into bed together. In Sedona, Arizona, Cristal Jennings watches online coverage of the Carringtons.[2]
