Episode 172 - The confession
Krystina is okay but Sarah has just become a shell of an individual. She is utterly unresponsive, which probably is not a bad thing. When the police inform Blake and Krystle that Sarah is in a secured wing at Cheney Hospital, Blake insists that Sarah needs to be institutionalized and that he is not pressing charges against Sarah. Even though it really does not work like that, Sarah is transferred to the Claudia Blaisdel wing of the sanitarium. Okay, the wing was not named after Claudia. Anyway, Krystle pays the unresponsive Sarah a visit just as the doctor is to administer a drug to make her responsive. Funny, I think it would be more appropriate that Dex should be there, but then again, I am not a doctor. In any event, Sarah finally speaks and wants to know where her daughter is. Great job. The doctor informs Krystle that Sarah may never accept the death of Cathy. It would be tragic if not for the fact that we all know that we will never speak of Sarah again.
Within a span of less than 24 hours, Alexis has given Dirk a ton of money for the takeover of Trouville Industries and the takeover was thwarted with Alexis and Dirk losing millions. Wow, I did not even know the stock market had managed to open up in time. Alexis does not seem phased by the loss of the money, she is more concerned with Adam. Alexis tries blaming Dana but Dana is correct in that she has been trying to talk to everyone for months but no one has been paying attention. Alexis is finally ready to listen and to find out what is bothering Adam. It did not take much as Adam finally confesses to Alexis and Blake that he is really Michael Torrence and that Neil McVane has presented him proof of that. Adam betrayed his own mother to keep that secret but he could no longer deal with it. Now, Adam, will leave Denver and resume his life as Michael Torrence.
No one is happy that Adam left and they want to bring him back to Denver. In fact, unlike Amanda, everyone wants to find Adam, even Steven. You would think they would be glad to be rid of an individual who has caused nothing but problems since he arrived a few years ago. Steven does track down Adam in Billings and tells him that he should return to Denver if, for no other reason, than to be with the woman he loves, Dana. Steven is not initially successful with that endeavor, but Adam does return to Dana and he wants to leave Denver with her as his wife. Dana is game. Before they can leave, Alexis and Blake arrive and tell Adam that he is their son and that they want him to marry Dana in his home, the Carrington mansion. Mind you, Adam probably has lived in that mansion for a couple of years.
Instead of tracking Adam down, Steven should show a little more concern for his family. Danny calls up his grandfather for some money so he can run away. Blake goes to Delta Rho to talk with Danny and subtly convince him not to run away. Didn't Danny promise to play with Krystina, so Danny should sleep over the mansion to keep his promise to his aunt. Blake wants to know from Sammy Jo what the problem is. Sammy Jo tries to play it off that it has nothing to do with Steven leaving but we all know that it does. Sammy Jo finally grows a pair with Steven and his continual moping and indecision when it comes to his family. Through all of this, I cannot stop forgetting that they have only been a happy family for a few months now. If you want to call the arrangement they had as happy.
Sammy Jo's ex is having a difficult time with his current, Leslie. Leslie is upset that Buck called her and offered her money to leave Denver and Clay. When she finally tells Clay, Clay has the bright idea of having Leslie move in with him and Leslie is game. Buck really needs to try a different tactic to get Leslie out of Clay's life. I wonder what Buck could do. Hmmm. . .
Nick still has the crazy idea that Dominique will accept his marriage proposal. Stop hounding her. Dominique feels that she has failed twice so why bother going for a third time. Nick tells her that he loves her and that he will make it work. Maybe Dominique will give in. But, before that, let's throw a wrench into the situation. Jackie returns to visit her mother and tells her that she having a great time with Garrett, that Garrett still loves her and that the three of them should try to be a family. Great, now Dominique has a real dilemma.
Free from the burden of hiding his heritage from Alexis and Blake, Adam pays a visit to McVane to tell him that everyone knows the truth, that he went to the police and told them that McVane blackmailed him. You know what that means, Neil violated his parole and will return to jail. Why Adam announces this to Neil before it happens is beyond me? Like, this will not make Neil a more desperate person. Stupid. Or at least have the police there waiting if you want to make a dramatic scene about it.
Since we cannot get enough of Dirk Mourier, he has a nephew, Gavin, who seems just as big as a douche bad as Peter DeVilbis. Gavin is working on some jet that his uncle was financing. Was being the operative word. Now that Dirk lost millions in the Trouville Industries deal, he has cut off funding to Gavin. No worry, Gavin will use his douche bag charms to get the money from Alexis. After being unsuccessful in pumping Dex for information about Alexis, Gavin follows Alexis to an art gallery where he makes an endearing impression on Alexis by promising to be her future. Is she really going to fall for this garbage? Quite a Captain of Industry.
