“While Steven had a choice to leave, unfortunately I didn’t,” MacKay said. “There’s a lot of decisions involved in making television, and sometimes they just don’t go your way and you have to live with it.”
While MacKay made it sound like he may be gone forever from the series, I hear that may not be the case. More on that in a bit.
MacKay is the second original Dynasty cast member to not be picked up for Season 2, joining Nathalie Kelley, who played Fallon and Steven’s new stepmom Cristal Flores Carrington in Season 1.
In last week’s episode, Steven announced that he was returning to Paraguay to continue working with his foundation, though he promised that he’d be home by Christmas. It is unclear whether he would be able to keep his promise but I hear that we have not seen the last of Steven and he will return later in the season in a surprising plot twist.
