The big, wealthy oil tycoon Blake Carrington and his former secretary, Krystle Grant Jennings are getting married. Krystle's ex-boyfriend, Matthew Blaisdel, who's been working as a geologist on one of Blake's oil rigs in the Mideast for a year and a half, is thrown out from there, and comes back to Denver. He accidentally meets Krystle, and they both start thinking that there may be a spark left from their previous relationship, and Krystle starts getting second thoughts about the wedding. She has a little argument about this with Blake. Blake's children, Steven Carrington and Fallon Carrington, also returns to Denver after being away. Blake is not getting good along with Steven, because Steven is homosexual and Blake won't accept this.
