Episode 40: The Siblings
Alexis decides to take the silver rattle from Adam to Jensen's Jewelers for some information. She then takes the information to Blake (when will Blake learn that every time he is excited that either Fallon or Krystle stops by his office it is Alexis). Alexis had taken that rattle to Jensen's to be engraved and they stopped making that model the year after Adam was kidnapped. Blake still refuses to believe that Michael Torrance is Adam, and believes Alexis is a fool for believing it so quickly.
Alexis returns to Jensen's to torment Krystle. Well, I am sure that is not the reason, but why is she returning? Krystle has no time for Alexis, but Alexis will make time - time enough to tell Krystle that she is finally happy, happy to have her first son. Krystle is happy for her, then. Maybe it will get Alexis out of her life. Oh, that will not be happening Krystle.
Meanwhile, Michael/Adam continues his flirtation with Fallon. Let's give credit to Fallon - under normal circumstances she would have bedded the man by now. Something must have been holding her back - maybe it's motherhood, or maybe she knows there is something not right. That does not stop Fallon from the flirtation and refusal to tell her name. Michael/Adam claims Fallon will tell him when the times is right and convinces her to go to dinner.
Everyone knows that the action will happen shortly after dinner. Fortunately for the two, Alexis runs into them together and notifies them both that they are siblings. Fallon refuses to believe it and even suspects Adam did this on purpose. Adam is just grateful he dodged a bullet, but doesn't seem as disturbed as one should be.
Fallon hopes Blake will agree with her that Adam is not his son, but Blake is coming to the realization that Adam is his child. After the meeting with Alexis, Blake takes Krystle out on a romantic walk at the cemetery to see where the Torrances were buried following the crash. I would think pulling up old newspaper articles would be easier, but less dramatic; especially since Blake is too lazy to move the grass from Michael Torrance's grave.
Blake and Krystle head to Billings and meet with Jonas Edwards, Kate's doctor. Jonas informs us of the manners of people in Montana while Blake just wants answers. What Blake learns is troubling - Kate returned with Michael/Adam on the very same day Adam was kidnapped, and the child did not even have a scratch despite allegedly being in a car accident. Also, Jonas did not believe that Adam looked like his parents.
Blake is now more certain that Adam is his son and shows his approval by inviting Adam to his office and offering a firm handshake. (Today, you would invite Adam on the Maury Povitch show for a DNA test.) Odd, I know. Even odder, Blake is prepared to bring Adam into Denver Carrington and have him work his way up. Adam thanks Blake for the offer but has already taken a better offer - from Alexis at Colby Co. It doesn't hurt that Alexis invited him to stay at the Penthouse (which we finally see - who needs a mansion).
Adam really is not ingratiating himself well into the family - he does come on a bit strong. When Adam first meets Jeff, he is already pumping Jeff for some information that is Denver Carrington property. Geez, for an attorney, Adam has quite a bit to learn about ethics. Jeff is instantly turned off by the newest Carrington.
Krystle gets Blake to invite Adam over for dinner, a dinner which is just the three of them since Fallon has work (and does not want to be there) and Jeff sends his regards (and does not want to be there). Krystle tries to soothe the awkwardness of the evening with some small talk, but Adam is more interested in discussing Steven's homosexuality and telling Blake he only came over to tell him that he resented being checked up on. Adam storms off - totally has his father's temper.
That same evening, Alexis is in New York where she finally meets tennis pro extraordinaire and Krystle's first and current husband.
Alexis: Because I've found my child. I've got Adam and nothing can ever hurt me or make me unhappy again. Not even you.
Krystle: Are you happy Alexis, really happy? [Alexis nods yes] Then, I'm happy for you because maybe now with something of your own to fill that empty life of yours, you'll finally get out of ours.
Adam: We're not through with each other, are we?
Fallon: Aren't we?
Adam: I don't think so.
Adam: Do you want to know what I want right now, I mean very badly - you!
Fallon: You don't know anything about me, not even my name.
Adam: You'll tell me later, very softly. And whatever it is, I'll say that's beautiful. Ahh. . . that's a beautiful name.
Adam: Another couple of hours last night I could have ended up in bed with my sister. In some parts of the world, they kill people for that.
Adam: He was gay [referring to Oscar Wilde], wasn't he?
Blake: I wouldn't know.
Adam: We don't have too many of them in Montana bu I guess you saw that for yourself.
Blake: No, I didn't, I wasn't looking.
