Dynasty believes that plastic surgery will provide her with a bright future as she plans to start working as a pole dancer, supported all the way by her mother Carol (Zöe Lucker).
Imogen Stewart (Kirstie Steele) encourages Dynasty to reconsider her priorities as she has much more to offer, but will she listen?
Digital Spy recently chatted to Abby Mavers, who plays Dynasty, to hear all about the storyline.
As newcomers to the show, how easy has it been for you and your on-screen family to settle in at Waterloo Road?
"It's been really easy and everyone's been very welcoming. Everyone is so friendly here and there's loads of support. They've all been showing us the ropes and they've been so kind."
How do you describe your character Dynasty to people?
"I think Dynasty is misunderstood. She has never been given a proper education, but she's naturally bright and intelligent. Her family are only really interested in making money and they're very concerned with 'family pride', but Dynasty has got a mind of her own.
"Everyone else in the family follows each other, but Dynasty realises that there's another life out there. Maybe this stereotype of a life that her mum has planned for her isn't really what she wants. I think the opportunity of going to Waterloo Road is her chance to move away from that."
What kind of a reaction have you seen to Dynasty so far?
"I didn't really know how people would take to Dynasty. I thought maybe the viewers would be in shock and not really like her at first, but I'm surprised because people seem to have warmed to her straight away.
"I think it's because Dynasty is outspoken - she says the things that people think but would never say! Maybe people can see a little bit of themselves in her. Loads of little girls have also said that they love her because of her eyelashes, the way she dresses and how she's so girly!"
Why has Dynasty decided that she wants plastic surgery and to be a pole dancer?
"I think it's due to a lot of pressure from Carol. After growing up with her mum being that way, Dynasty believes that's what she wants for herself. But I think spending time with other people at Waterloo Road makes her realise otherwise.
"Carol is telling Dynasty that she can make money, look good and have opportunities. But Dynasty is starting to realise that there's more to her and she's better than this."
What can you tell us about the Dynasty and Imogen scenes coming up?
"I think Dynasty and Imogen have found each other at the right time. Dynasty is vulnerable because her dad has gone to prison, her mum is struggling and the family is trying to stick together. Imogen also has scarring on her face, so she has really low self-esteem.
"Imogen is feeling isolated, and Dynasty also feels isolated from her family because her brother and sister are in the PRU. Also, Imogen hasn't got much of a relationship with Connor at the moment. Even though Dynasty and Imogen probably clash, they need each other because they see themselves in each other."
Will Dynasty find it hard to stand up to Carol when it comes to choosing a different path for her future?
"I do think it will be hard for Dynasty to stand up to her mum, because she's the driving force behind the family. But there's a lot of Carol in Dynasty, so I do think that will come out!"
What are your own views on the issues covered in this episode?
"I think it's a really good storyline because it's a good example for the little girls who are tweeting me saying that they love Dynasty and want to look like her. If my character was dead set on the plastic surgery and wasn't thinking about school, that would send out a message that this is the right way to be.
"But with the Imogen and Dynasty scenes that are coming up, hopefully the message will get across to little girls that it's okay to be naturally beautiful - just be yourself and who you are."
How have you found working with Zöe Lucker?
"From day one, Zöe has been like a big sister to us. She's told us to work hard. Even though it's nice that you're getting compliments from people on Facebook and Twitter, she's told us to concentrate on our work because that's the most important thing.
"Zöe has really taken us under her wing and instilled in us all the things that we should know. She's really nice and great to work with. She's shown us a lot of love and support, and I couldn't ask for a better person to play our mum."
You and your on-screen siblings are all from Liverpool, so did you give Zöe any tips on her accent?
"Zöe had the accent down already, but there were a few certain words where she felt it wasn't totally Scouse, so she'd ask, 'Should I say it like this or not?' We'd give her little tips, but we had a laugh doing it!"
How well do you get along with Carl Au and Brogan Ellis, who play Barry and Kacey?
"We get on really well. It's amazing, because we started together on day one and were a bit nervous getting to know each other, but now you'd think that we were really family.
"Even in years to come after this show, I know that we'll all remain friends and stay in touch because we've been through so much together. I live with Brogan and we have a laugh together. We go round to Carl's quite a lot, too."
Who else are you close friends with?
"I'd have to say my other best friends in the cast are Marlene who plays Lula, and Tommy who plays Kevin."
How have you found moving from Liverpool to Scotland for the role?
"At first I wondered what it would be like being away from the family, but I've loved it. I'm in a bubble, so when I'm at home on a week off, I just want to go back! Scotland has become a home from home and I really love it. Everyone in Scotland is really lovely."
Have you done much TV work in the past?
"I did a television programme when I was 6 and from then on, I've been doing drama training and things like that. I did a bit of modelling and then I auditioned for a musical, Willy Russell's Our Day Out, and I did that for two years. I did a little bit of television and short films, but this is my first proper TV job."
Are the Barrys going to calm down or carry on causing chaos?
"I think the Barrys will always create chaos, no matter where they are or when! But I do think we will shock and surprise people. Their initial impression of us will change - whether that's for the better or for the worse, you'll have to wait and see!"
