Being born in 1999 as Matthew Rappaport, the truth wasn't unveiled until 2003 that Mathew wasn't the son of Sam and Nora but rather of Nora and Bo Buchanan. In 2001, Dr. Troy MacIver diagnosed and saved Matthew from a rare muscle disorder causing Matthew and the doctor to bond. Matthew's mother also developed admiration for Troy. However, Troy's obsession with Nora caused him to do all sorts of crazy things, even kidnap Matthew. In the end, Matthew survived the incident with little trauma.
Throughout his young childhood, Matthew looked up to his best friend Starr Manning and found himself in trouble a time or two after following in Starr's overly ambitious footsteps. In high school, Matthew faced peer pressure, was caught with a joint and continued down the path of adolescence after stealing pills from Cole's locker. He had a tough time fitting in, as the son of the Police Commissioner and the District Attorney, and ended up paralyzed after a car accident where Cole was driving under the influence.
After months of fighting his parents, to allow him to have a surgery in order to walk again, Matthew, with the help of Destiny, was granted permission by a judge but was kidnapped by Bo and Nora and sent to a boarding school in London. Matthew met Dani Rayburn there, and while the two escaped the school, Matthew found out that Dani was Tea's daughter. Matthew finally had the surgery and began to regain some feeling in his legs during Thanksgiving of 2009 when Destiny dropped a fork on his legs.
Matthew regained feeling in his legs and changed after losing Dani to Nate. His arrogance blossomed after Matthew went to work for his Uncle Clint at Buchanan Enterprises. Clint filled his head with lies about Bo and Nora, which turned Matthew against his father. During this time, thinking Nora was having an affair with Eddie Ford, Matthew went to Eddie's motel room and ended up shooting him. Matthew confided in Destiny and the two had unprotected sex. Matthew wanted to go to the police, but Nora convinced him to stay quiet about the murder. Word got out to a few people and when it reached Nate (Eddie's son), he punched Matthew. Matthew fell, hit his head and ended up in a coma.
Though Matthew went in and out of the comma, he finally came to in November 2011 and was stunned to learn that Destiny was pregnant. They ended up having a boy named Drew.

At the Man Of The Year Gala at Shelter, Nikki complains to Rama about her lack of tips. When Dorian arrives, Rama hides behind Nikki. Carl Peterson joins Dorian and comments on the self-portrait she donated. Jo and David appear with their cameraman. Dorian introduces Carl to her soon-to-be ex-husband then trashes Rama. Viki arrives outside, late, and apologizes to Diego for Clint punching him. When Viki enters the gala, she tells Jeffrey and Destiny how lovely they look. Bo and Nora watch and hope Matthew's okay with Jeffrey and Destiny being together. They can't deny how they hoped one day Matthew and Destiny would reunite. Viki joins Natalie, where they discuss Clint and pray he stays away from the gala. Viki then takes Carl away from Dorian to meet Bo. Blair privately confesses to Dorian that she has no idea where Jack is tonight. Arturo and Dani appear. Tea spots them and orders Dani over. Dani claims Arturo is Brianna's uncle, but Tea is clearly upset by her daughter's date and storms off. Michelle appears and argues with Dani over Matthew and the fact that they're wearing the same dress. Arturo takes Dani away, and Michelle cries on Matthew's shoulder about how mean Dani is to her. Matthew races over to Dani, orders her to stay away from Michelle then goes to Tea and reveals that Arturo isn't Brianna's uncle. He was her sugar daddy. Tea stomps over to Dani and Arturo and demands he get his hands off her daughter. As they argue, the gala is called to order. Viki takes the podium and begins with the auction of Dorian's self-portrait. Dorian's embarrassed when no one starts the bidding. Carl notices, bids $100,000, and wins. At the bar, Nikki gets catty with Natalie and reveals that Cutter has been having sex with her for months. When Cutter joins Natalie, she seethes about what Nikki said. Nikki spills a drink on Natalie.
Clint screams at the gala at Shelter, "I am the Man Of The Year!" Viki begs Clint to stop making a fool of himself, as he trashes the place. EMS arrives and straps Clint to a gurney. Natalie scolds Bo for having Clint taken away like that in front of everyone. Natalie ignores Viki's orders not to follow Clint to the psych ward and insists on supporting Clint, as does Matthew. She storms out and pushes Cutter away. Cutter demands to know why Diego allowed Clint into Shelter and hears Clint paid him $100,000. Viki hears about the payoff from Diego too. Carl says goodbye to Viki, who gives Jeffrey the go-ahead to cover what went down with Clint. Tea follows Dani and Arturo outside and demands to know why she lied about Arturo. She calls Arturo a predator and warns Dani she'll end up like Brianna. Dani storms off. Back inside, Viki brings up seeing Blair crying during Carl's speech and asks Blair what kind of trouble Todd is in. Blair denies Viki any information. Cutter approaches Nikki about revealing their connection to Natalie. She reminds him they have business to take care of. He agrees and says that 'this' can't come between it. Nikki kisses Cutter and insists that what he has with Natalie will never work.
As Carl takes the stage at the gala, Clint appears outside and tries to make amends with Diego. Back inside, everyone listens with emotion as Carl toasts to those who have given them their freedom in our nation. As Blair cries, Tea whispers, "He'll be back." As Bo takes the stage to accept the Man Of The Year award from Viki, Clint appears. He pushes Bo off the stage, takes the award and says, "From the bottom of my heart, screw all of you."
Clint is strapped to a bed at the psych ward. Natalie and Matthew arrive outside his room and hear Clint's been sedated for the night. After Natalie insists Matthew go home, she's led into Clint's room. Natalie screams, as Allison Perkins says, "Hello Natalie." Allison laughs as she holds a syringe over Clint, who gasps for air.
Michelle tries to cheer Matthew up at his apartment. She talks about her dad, who was as out of control as his Uncle Clint. When Michelle admits they used to find him passed out in lawn chairs outside their house, Matthew wonders why Michelle previously said she grew up in an apartment.
In the hospital waiting room, Matthew feels bad about telling Michelle to leave. Nora agrees and wants to know if things are getting serious between them. Clint arrives wanting to know about Drew's fever. Clint and Bo argue. Jeffrey comes in. Clint wants him to get a message to the man who taped the video about buying it. Jeffrey doesn’t want to oblige. Clint leaves after telling Matthew to keep him updated on Drew. Jeffrey shows Matthew the video. Later, Destiny emerges and says they can take Drew home. Nora questions Destiny about Michelle. Michelle tells Matthew that she wishes he'd told her sooner about Drew.
Jeffrey breaks into Clint's office, opens his desk and takes out Clint's pill bottle. Matthew knocks on the door startling Jeffrey who replaces several of the pills with different ones. Matthew leaves and Jeffrey exits. Clint receives a phone call about the award later from a man named Christopher Stone. Chris tells Clint that the board voted to drop him. Clint yells as he hangs up. Matthew enters and tries to cheer Clint up and wants to know who Clint's replacement is.
Outside Shelter, Tea appears with Dean, Cutter and Natalie arrive, and Bo and Nora enter. Natalie knows that Clint isn't happy and asks Bo if he’s heard from him.
