Episode 101: The Treasure
So, Krystle is really going to become a breeder of Arabian horses, and Daniel is going to teach her how to do it. Krystle is tired of being a wall flower and wants to be a doer. But, the whole purpose on the show is for you to be a wall flower. Blake still pushes back but he has no say in the matter. Further, Krystle does not want to rely on Blake to get her business started, so she relies on Daniel to help her get a syndicate together willing to pay up for Allegree's stud services. She will use that money to start her business.
Someone is spying on Krystle and Daniel and taking some incriminating photographs of the two together. For some strange reason, when Krystle leaves, the individual spying drives up on her ass which forces Krystle off the road. Krystle gets the man's license place but when Blake investigates the plate number, he learns that there is no such plate registered in Colorado.
Dex is not happy with Alexis for going off to Sumatra without telling her. When is Dex going to learn that Alexis is going to do what she wants and that she is driven by her obsession with Blake? Meanwhile, Amanda's presence does not help the situation. Alexis wants Amanda to get out more and meet some people, like a man, other than hanging around the Penthouse. When Amanda has one of her spats and runs away from her Mummy, she trips on the bottom two steps. Dex is there to attend to her, and Alexis notices there is something a little too close between the two.
Luke continues his pursuit of Steven, as friends. Luke offers to take Steven to the Broncos game. Wait a minute, there are two football teams in Denver - the Broncos and the Monarchs (the team Blake owns). Steven refuses the offer because he is going to make amends with his wife. Then he snaps as Luke. Get a grip, Steven. I think if you two finally do it, it will break the tension.
It may be more difficult for Steven to reconcile with Claudia than he thinks. Steven finds Claudia and Adam dining at La Mirage. Steven is pissed that Claudia did not contact him the minute she returned from Washington, DC. Claudia claims the two grabbed a quick bite to eat. I really need to be wealthier, because a quick bite to eat for me means going to McDonald's or grabbing a slice of pizza. Steven tells Claudia they should talk about the two of them when they are not so angry with each other. You started it Steven.
Alexis is back to her awesome scheming ways. Okay, when did she stop? Alexis is intrigued by this Daniel Reece individual, especially after she learns that he and Dex took part in several military missions. She stops by to let Daniel know that she does not want him to rope Dex into any more missions. Let's face it, Daniel does not look like he could. But, that was just a pretext. Alexis really wants to encourage Daniel to make a move on Krystle. Daniel will not be like Mark Jennings. Besides, he will make a play for Krystle without Alexis's interference.
Blake thinks Daniel is definitely making a play for Krystle. There is some sort of mix-up as Blake finds Daniel waiting for him when he returns home. Daniel is angered because he had been waiting for Blake for a while, except there was no such meeting. Who really cares who is at fault (I suspect Alexis) because it gives an opportunity for Blake to accuse Daniel of pursuing Krystle.
Alexis's prime target is that parvenu, Dominique. Alexis is determined to break Tom's will. Alexis actually thinks she can enlist Blake in her endeavor, but Blake is siding with his sister. Blake is now all about Dominique and has a special dinner for her to welcome her into the family. Dominique is touched but now has Alexis as her mortal enemy. Alexis wants to investigate Dominique's finances to find her weak spot.
Oh wait, this episode is entitled "The Treasure" and I have not even mentioned what the treasure is. Jeff and Nicole are in Bolivia using a non-map to find that Incan statue. Well, Jeff is really looking for Fallon and there is some mysterious woman hanging around. Why would Jeff think that Fallon is in Bolivia anyway? She does not have the non-map? Totally stupid.
Jeff is about to burn the non-map when he figures out that the church sketched on the back may mean an actual church. Seriously? Jeff and Nicole visit this one church and notice that the names of some of the people buried there match the pictures on the non-map. With that knowledge, the two find the Incan statute. But, the mystery woman pulls a gun on them and demands the statute. Jeff, thinking it is Fallon, gets the gun away from her, but it is not Fallon.
No, it is some archaeology student who was there to prevent the two from stealing Bolivian treasures. What? They carry guns like that. Jeff gives her statue to be put in a museum. Nicole is not happy but she gets her treasure in the end. The next morning Jeff awakes in a hangover to discover he married Nicole the night before. That's wedding #3, Jeff.
Blake: As long as a man doesn't get in my way, I don't care what he buys.
Daniel: I have a rule - I never go after anything that can't be taken.
Blake: Does that rule hold only for companies or does it apply to wives also.
Krystle: I've been a passive person while everybody else does.
Alexis: Alright, I don't need Tom's will to break that saloon singer into little pieces. There's more than one way to destroy her. You may believe that and I'll find it.
Alexis [to Amanda]: Aunty Dominique. Do you really think that thieving parvenu is in any way related to you.
