Episode 114: The Heiress
Most of the action for this episode is in preparation for the season finale which will be the next episode, and the wedding of Amanda and Michael. Before, we get to the fun happenings in Moldavia, let's focus on what is happening in Denver. In the dumbest love story yet, Jeff is spending too much time with Lady Ashley. At least Jeff is getting work done between sexual sessions with Ashley. Thankfully, we do not have to see that. At the same time, unfortunately, we do have to see Jeff propose to Ashley. Ashley refuses to answer right away. Maybe she should wait until after the wedding to make a decision.
Waiting until the wedding is over is a good excuse not to give a firm answer to anything. Since Claudia has nothing better to do, she asks Blake for a more formal contract for her work as the manager of La Mirage. It is obvious that Blake does not approve of Claudia and Adam's relationship but that is no reason for Blake to give Claudia some lame excuse that he does not want to enter into any contractual arrangements until he decides what he might want to do with La Mirage, including selling it. Um, Blake you can still give Claudia the contract and sell the hotel - there is such a thing as an escape clause. Just saying. Claudia pretty much tells Blake she'll see him at the wedding, a wedding she intends to have a great time at.
Dex informs Krystle that Daniel died in his mission in Libya. Maybe I misunderstood a few episodes back, but I could have sworn the mission was in Bolivia. No matter, Daniel is dead. Krystle tries to get a hold of Sammy Jo to tell her of her father's death. Rita beats Krystle to the punch. At first, Sammy Jo is upset because she barely knew her father. Then, Sammy Jo realizes that Daniel was rich, and Sammy Jo does respect money.
Even before the will is read, Sammy Jo returns to Denver and acts like she is mistress of Delta Rho. And she is going to sue everybody. First up, Steven. Sammy Jo wants custody of Danny again, even if Danny does not like her. Steven would rather kill Sammy Jo than allow her custody. He probably should not have announced that intention in front of Jeannette, or as Sammy Jo calls her, a witness.
But, Sammy Jo, is going to save her best fire for her Aunty Krystle. Sammy Jo is not happy that she does inherit the bulk of Daniel's estate, but with one caveat - Krystle is responsible for all monetary decisions. Oh no, Sammy Jo wants the money free and clear, even if the lawyer tells her that is impossible. Well, Sammy Jo has a bright idea when she returns to New York and sees Rita practicing not speaking like a hick. Hmmm. . . Rita's voice reminds her of someone. Gee, who can that be???
In Moldavia, Amanda and Alexis are greeted by Elena, the woman Michael snubbed in order to marry Amanda. Elena is pretty much a bitch who wants Michael back but Michael has no interest in her. Alexis warns Amanda not to allow Elena to get under her skin because that is the easiest way to lose Michael.
At the same time, King Galen, makes another play for Alexis. Galen is hoping that Alexis will end her marriage to Dex and marry him. Alexis is not willing to make that commitment and is still committed to working things out with Dex. I mean, it will be easier once Amanda is safely married to Michael and living in Moldavia. Ooops, there may be a problem with that plan. Amanda catches Michael and Elena together even though Michael repels Elena's advances. Amanda tosses the engagement ring at Michael and happens to run into Dex for advice. Alexis better get this under control.
