Episode 42: Kirby
Kirby returns from Paris and the first person she greets at the Carrington Estate is a turtle she had named Jeffrey who is hanging out by the lilly pond. Wouldn't you know it, the other Jeffrey arrives. Jeff is surprised to see how Kirby has grown. Kirby tells Jeff that she used to have the biggest crush on him (still does) and Jeff decides to tell her right away that he and Fallon are having marital problems. Kirby finally sees her father and is more interested in Jeff's relationship with Fallon than what she is going to do with her life. Joseph tells Kirby to stay out of the relationship, and she agrees.
Later, Kirby learns from Jeannette, that the relationship between Fallon and Jeff is really bad. Further, the two cannot agree on a nurse for the baby. Jeannette will remain the primary care taker until the two can find a nurse. Gee, I wonder what idea Kirby is going to have in her mind, and I am sure her father is just going to love it that the daughter he sent to the Sorbonne wants to be L.B.'s caretaker.
Even though Mark is now the pro at La Mirage, he still has little interest in Alexis's schemes. This is smart on Mark's part especially if he wants Krystle back. Even without Mark's cooperation, Alexis is going to interfere, and all for Blake's good. Alexis arranges a meeting between Mark and Krystle at La Mirage. When Krystle sees Mark, she also has flashbacks of Mark - but not good ones. She has memories of Mark's drinking (although they do get romantic in one). She remembers how Mark left her to go to Mexico and send her the divorce papers.
The memories bother Krystle so much that she confronts Fallon about hiring Mark and arranging the meeting. Fallon, rightfully, claims that she had nothing to do with arranging the meeting. Didn't Fallon learn from Season 2 not to scheme with her mother to try to embarrass Krystle? Krystle assures Fallon that her little scheme will not work. Really, Krystle? It seems to have gotten under your skin. I mean you left picking flowers at your estate to confront Fallon at La Mirage. There must be lingering feelings.
Out of no where, Denver Carrington is in financial trouble, again. There is a glut in the oil market which is leading to a delay in Denver Carrington's shale oil production. A loan payment which will help with operations could be delayed, and Denver Carrington could be in big trouble. Adam, while in Blake's office (the two have reconciled), snooped and saw the contract and tells Jeff that maybe Colby Co could front Denver Carrington the money in exchange for the shale oil extraction process. Jeff already fought this battle with Cecil and will fight it again with Adam. There is room for both empires to co-exist. Besides, Adam is going after his own father - that's cold!
Blake does not need the help, anyway, as he is going to get political clout from Congressman Neil McVane. Congressman McVane said there just is not the will in Washington D.C., but Blake has confidence that McVane will get it done. Jeff happens to tell Alexis about Blake's success with McVane. Alexis will see to it that it won't be a success and contacts McVane herself.
Alexis is noticing more and more that Adam, and his temper, reminds her of Blake. Alexis needs to tamper his temper or else Adam could destroy himself. (If only Alexis could see how Adam still taunts his sister about the potential sexual act they could have had.) Alexis wants Jeff at Colby Co and believes she can turn him to their side through kindness, and a little bit of sex appeal. Jeff is moving into Cecil's old office. Adam, out a kind gesture, is going to redecorate the office before Jeff's arrival, which I guess means a coat of paint over the wood paneling. Oh, but this won't be just any paint, this is a special paint, one that can cause one to go crazy or die if they breathe too much of the fumes. Welcome to Colby Co., Jeff.
Adam: Good morning, Jeff.
Jeff: Is it ?
Fallon: What I want is to make sure my father won't get hurt?
Alexis: I know. Now you know as well as I do that neither of us brought Mark Jennings out here. He came out on his own accord and the only person who could hurt your father in this situation is his dear pseudo-wife, Krystle, who is not worthy of him. So, the sooner we get rid of her, the better. Where's the hurt?
Fallon [to Adam]: Look, I may not get along with Jeff as a husband, but I for a minute don't under-estimate his intelligence. So, if he's fighting you, especially you, he must have a damn' good reason.
Fallon: You're not my brother.
Adam: No, then why don't we pick up where we left off. Remember?
Fallon: Get out of here. Leave me alone. Just go
Adam: You'll change your mind. I mean about Jeff.
Adam: He killed his son's lover.
Alexis: Well, there was a scuffle and the young man died.
Adam: And, you testified against Blake.
Alexis: Well, yes, I had to. I was subpoenaed. I had to account all the terrible things that happened in the past, Adam. All the violent things he done to me. So you see, it cost him dearly, once. I wouldn't like to see that happened to you, now.
