Episode 160: A Love Remembered Part 1
As if there was any doubt, Ben helps rescue Blake. The two manage to get off the rig before it explodes. Alexis, of course, gets out unscathed and still wearing those horrible leather (or is it pleather) pants. Ahhh, if it was only so simple. In Singapore, Alexis learns that Blake is suffering from shock and believes that it is 1964. Alexis finds it the perfect opportunity to pretend that she and Blake are still married. Why would she do such a thing? Oh, to get her South China Sea leases back. That is at least what she tells Adam what her motive is. In order for the plan to work, Adam needs to remain quiet about where Blake and Alexis are. Adam reluctantly agrees.
It is a good thing for Alexis that Ben is recovering in a hospital in Hong Kong. Alexis is also able to whisk Blake off to a secluded villa in Singapore to help him recover and to kind of fill him in on what has happened between 1964 and 1987. All we see Alexis talking about is that Jimmy Carter was elected President in 1976. I understand that Blake is in shock and all, but could we at least see Alexis tell Blake that the kidnapped Adam returned as an adult, that Steven is gay, that Fallon become English, that he has a fourth child who went from English to American. That must be too much for me to ask.
Back in Denver, when Steven tells Krystle about the rig explosion, she is determined to go out to Hong Kong to find Blake. Krystle does manage to find Ben but Ben is not helpful with information since people tend to get separated during explosions. Gee, Steven could have told Krystle that. Nothing will stop Krystle from finding Blake. And later, she is joined by Dex who is determined to find the woman he loves. The two will find them together.
Sammy Jo still feels guilt ridden that she has not told Clay about her pregnancy. Time is ticking Sammy Jo. Steven notices that something is tearing Sammy Jo inside but Sammy Jo does not want to talk about. A softer Steven does not press the issue and even allows Sammy Jo to spend some extra time with Danny. Sammy Jo is grateful but it all goes terribly wrong when Danny spooks a horse and it knocks Sammy Jo out.
Wait, is the accident the perfect opportunity to fake a miscarriage. Even if it was, Sammy Jo does not get the opportunity to do so because the doctor informs Clay that Sammy Jo is not pregnant. As soon as Sammy Jo comes to, Clay confronts Sammy Jo about faking the pregnancy as a ruse to marry him. Sammy Jo explains that it was not like that and that she loves him more than she has loved any man. Clay needs some time to think about it and storms out of Sammy Jo's hospital room.
For some reason, Adam has a conscious and is not comfortable lying to the family about Blake and Alexis's condition even though Alexis implores him to keep quiet. Adam even did not enjoy lying to Steven. That is something new. Dana tries to get Adam to speak but that only results with Adam insulting Dana. That is a great way to kill the romantic mood.
Okay, let's return to Singapore where all the action in this episode takes place. There is not much to discuss since we have numerous touching and intimate scenes between Blake and Alexis as Alexis helps Blake to recover without mentioning Krystle and Kristina. Even though Alexis's initial plan was to get 50% of the South China Sea leases, she actually tears up the papers once Blake signed them. (Of course, I doubt that the papers say Alexis Colby on them, so what good is that contract.)
Alexis is falling in love with Blake again, which assumes that Alexis never fell out of love. She loves the time alone with Blake and Blake loves the time too. The two even kiss but there will be no sex because Blake still feels there is something blocking him from doing so. Also, John Forsythe would never approve. As much as Alexis is enjoying this fantasy, it cannot last forever but Alexis is trying her best to keep Blake isolated from the rest of the world. It may not last much longer as Krystle and Dex arrive in Singapore.
