Episode 44:  Acapulco

It is the morning after the party, and Blake is ready to fly off to Washington D.C. with McVane and seal the deal for Denver Carrington.  Blake packs himself this time because Joseph packs too much gray and Joseph seems a little peeved that he did not have the opportunity to pack Mr. Carrington's things.  On the flight to Washington, McVane is enjoying a few too many bloody marys and seems nervous.  Blake once again claims that this loan is for the good of America.  Go U.S.A.!

 Joseph is not thrilled that the bags have already been packed - there goes his fun for the day

Krystle is still upset that she is married to Mark.  She calls him and the two talk in some field far away where Krystle always seems to meet suitors.  All Mark wants is for Krystle to believe that the divorce was a fake - that's a weird thing to want.  Krystle does learn that it was Alexis, and not Fallon, who was responsible for tracking down Mark and convincing him that Krystle needed him.  Even though Krystle claims to be through with the man who stole from her and walked out on her, she has some weird connection to him. 

Mark returns from his meeting with Krystle and has the pleasure of dealing with Fallon.  Fallon is a little harsh on him, so she makes it up by bringing champagne to his room (what a nice boss).  When Fallon claims that Mark has lost his touch, he kisses her.  And, in true Fallon fashion she reciprocates and then pulls back.

Meanwhile, Krystle goes to Mexico, first Guadalajara and then Acapulco, to determine whether the divorce decree is a forgery.  She does not tell Blake or anyone where exactly in Mexico she will be.  Blake, after returning successful from Washington D.C., gets the ambassador to track down Krystle for him.  Just as Krystle learns that her divorce decree is a fake, Blake arrives.  The two embrace to the Dynasty theme.  Krystle tells Blake everything and Blake does not seem overly concerned, unlike Krystle.  Krystle will just divorce Mark in Colorado and she and Blake will remarry.  For some strange - and annoying - reason, Krystle is being a basket case over it.

Back in Denver, Blake gives Krystle the good news that she can get a divorce in Colorado and it will only take ninety days.  Even better news, Blake offers to take Krystle on a second honeymoon, this time to Hawaii.  Krystle does not seem as happy as one would think.  Blake accuses Krystle of still having feelings for Mark, but Krystle claims Mark is confused.  Confused about what?  Blake is not in the mood for the caring Krystle bit and tells her to forget about the second honeymoon.

The effects of the paint are starting to get Jeff - he is becoming dizzy, sweaty and forgetful.  Kirby notices it and begins to rub the back of his neck.  A back rub that Joseph notices and confronts Kirby about.  Joseph warns Kirby that the wealthy use people (interesting for Joseph to say) and that she should go back to Paris and marry that Frenchman.  Oh, there is a slight problem, he is already married.  Kirby was the mistress and now she has returned to Denver to do so again.

Kirby could do worse - Adam.  Adam is still all over her and she keeps turning down his overtures.  Adam really has a strange way of trying to become a member of the family.   He is isolated from Fallon, is critical of Steven who he has not met, and is determined to destroy Blake and Denver Carrington.  Adam is a sociopath who really just wants Alexis and Colby Co to himself.  Blake asks Adam to keep his mother at bay but Adam won't do so.  Blake vows to fight his own son if he has to.

Alexis (who only has one scene in this episode) really gets to Adam when he tells him that he should be more well-mannered like Steven.  Steven is tracked down to an oil rig in the Java Sea.  We actually see the back of Steven as he tells his friend Ben Reynolds how lucky he is not to live to other's expectations.  Ben tells him having a family is much better.  

Fallon wants Blake to track down exactly which rig Steven is on, even if Steven does not want to return just yet.  It may not be that hard to find since the rig on which Steven was working blows up. 

 Oh, there is where Steven is

Oh, there is where Steven is

Memorable Dialogue 

Adam:  Oh, that's right - taking care of the little Colby prince.  Why, you'll realize one of these days that you're much too pretty to spend your time playing nanny to my nephew.  You should be thinking about having babies of your own.
Kirby:  You have the babies, I'm busy. 

Krystle:  You bought our divorce in a bar. 

Fallon:  Temper; Temper.  It's not my fault you didn't turn her on.  Maybe, you lost your touch.
Mark:  Who says.  [Kisses Fallon]  Still think I lost it.
Fallon:  So, I was wrong [Mark tries to kiss Fallon again]  And so are you.  I just came by to protect my investment.  Bye. 

Alexis:  What you think most of the time my dear Adam doesn't interest me.  It's what I think that does. 

Adam:  That he was ready to battle with you.  That he was tired of your manipulations.
Alexis:  Hah!  I invented that word.
