On his way back to Denver, Matthew happens to be on the same plane as Steven Daniel Carrington, Blake's son who has been finding himself in New York for the last two years.

Still, she comes to the mansion to talk about wedding preparations with Mr. Afferton, the snobbish man in charge of the ceremony.

Scene 12: The limousine
As Michael drives the car through the gates, the car telephone buzzes : it's Fallon, Blake's daughter, talking into a portable remote telephone from the estate's meadow. Then she rides on horseback to the car as Blake gets out of it. While Steven was finding himself in New York, Fallon was finding herself with some soccer player in Greece. Blake wishes Fallon will settle down and wants her to escort Jeff Colby, nephew of Blake's rival Cecil Colby, to Blake's wedding. Fallon feels this is nothing more than a merger because ColbyCo is far larger than Denver-Carrington. Blake sees nothing wrong with the arrangement.
