Episode 50: Two Flights to Haiti
Every season you really are going to have a couple of dull episodes that just drive the plot along before hitting more interesting material - this is one of those episodes.
Alexis is not finished with Adam. When Adam returns, Alexis wants to talk to him, but Adam plays the sympathetic card and claims he is doing what he is doing because Blake pretty much gave up the search for him. Alexis is concerned that Adam is killing Jeff just to help her, but Adam assures her that it will not kill Jeff and implores his mother to believe him. Alexis feels she has no choice but to do so. Stupid!
At least Adam's poisoning has the desired effect. Blake wants to reason with Jeff and find out what is wrong, but Jeff does not want to listen to Blake. Jeff firmly believes that Blake will always side against him because he is still a Colby. Well, Jeff is going to show Blake. He beckons Adam and agrees to sign over LB's shares of Denver Carrington stock to Colby Co and give Alexis control of Colby Co while Jeff goes on a much needed vacation. Alexis is too concerned about Jeff's health to enjoy the triumph.
Jeff does have a moment of lucidity to sign Fallon's divorce papers. Fallon is going to fly off to Haiti to get the divorce. Krystle is concerned that going to a developing nation for a divorce is not always a success, just look at what it has done with her and Mark. Fallon is determined to get the divorce and nothing will stop her. Considering what Jeff did to Fallon, the family, and Blake, acquiesces.
Free from Colby Co. and Fallon, Jeff returns to the Carrington mansion to see his son. After intercepting a call from Mark to Fallon, Jeff races off to Mark for a final showdown. This showdown - you got it, a tennis match. Not odd at all. Blake watches as Jeff decides to settle the score with Mark. Well, Jeff collapses and is rushed to the hospital.
Alexis goes to see Jeff at the hospital but only manages to see Krystle who fills Alexis in on the situation. The doctors do not know what is wrong with Jeff but they are running tests. The idea of tests brings terror to Alexis. Fortunately, Adam shows up in time to run interference and get Alexis out of there. In the elevator, Alexis tells Adam once they run tests his whole adventure will be exposed. Adam assures her that no one will learn that he poisoned Jeff. He will have the office redone for Alexis to work from and if anyone asks, Alexis can just say that the color of the office had clashed with her eyes. Sadly, that is believable.
Adam convinces Kirby to have dinner with him. Unfortunately, Kirby is not great company, and Joseph is not thrilled at all (what can he do). Adam's pursuit of Kirby takes a different turn as Adam asks Kirby to join Colby Co. as a translator. Kirby may actually go for that.
In Haiti, Fallon meets other women who are down there for a divorce. Fallon is not thrilled by having to endure such people for a few days - but that is the price of divorce. Well, Fallon will not be alone as the room service that arrives at 3am, which she did not order, turns out to be Mark, who is there to keep Fallon company. Fallon suggests she does not need someone to "comfort" her a la Alexis. Mark is offended that Fallon would assume he would travel so far, just to score, even if that is what Mark is trying to do.
The episode ends with Blake remaining at the hospital wanting to know what is wrong with Jeff. Tests will take time, and even longer while the lab is closed. That is unacceptable to Blake who wants that lab running until there are answers. Answers indeed.
Fallon: You really should be saving yourself for your tennis playing ladies.
Mark: Look, I don't need to fly to the Caribbean on a crowded night coach just to score, Fallon.
