Episode 86:  The Nightmare 

Dominique returns to La Mirage after her initial meeting with Alexis and entertains the guests with a song by the piano.  Apparently, Alexis decides to go to La Mirage also and realizes who Dominique is once she hears her singing.  Alexis still wants to do know why Dominique is in Denver and Dominique responds that one of the reasons she is in Denver is to make Alexis feel uncomfortable.

Kirby has been stroking her gun for days now, is she going to use it on Alexis or what?  Kirby finally is alone with Alexis in Alexis's penthouse and is determined to finish the conversation she intended to have with Alexis.  Kirby claims that the only way Alexis can pay for the death of Joseph is through her own death.  Kirby finally pulls the gun but is way too shaky and nervous to pull the trigger.  Alexis picks up on it right away and makes Kirby a deal, she will not call the police if Kirby forgets marrying Adam and returns to Paris.  Kirby agrees.  Besides, she really did not love Adam anyway. 

 Finally, Kirby!

Finally, Kirby!

Sammy Jo is determined to regain custody of Danny.  Now, all she needs is a real man to be the father of her child.  Wouldn't you know it - Adam is recently single and is a Carrington.  Sammy Jo overhears Kirby breaking up with Adam so she sets her sight on him.  And, Adam being the horny sociopath that he is, is more than willing to be with Sammy Jo.

 Adam sure does not waste any time

Steven is determined to fight with Sammy Jo to keep custody of his child.  Sammy Jo believes no judge will ever prevent the natural mother from having custody, which is probably true, even Sammy Jo.  Still, Steven wants his son and will be damned to let Adam be the child's father.  Both Chris Deegan (I wonder where he is living) and Claudia believe Steven should make a joint custody deal with Sammy Jo.  I doubt Claudia would be so supportive of Sammy Jo's rights had she known that Sammy Jo is the one who got Morgan Hess to pretend to be Matthew in an attempt to send Claudia back to the sanatorium.  Unfortunately for Sammy Jo, she had to sleep with Hess to get him to do it.

Blake's attempts to raise the $100 million goes for naught.  Dex attempts to purchase the football team for 20 cents on the dollar, but Blake refuses his offer.  (It is awesome to think that back at this time, 1984, the football team was worth $50 million.  It would be worth close to a $1 billion today.)  Time is up and the banks foreclose.  They are now the new owners of Denver Carrington.  Krystle assures Blake that he can always start another company.   But, Blake says he does not have to.  Someone will have to run Denver Carrington, and when they realize that, they will come begging to Blake.  But, nothing can be done that night so he tells Krystle to get ready to go home.

 Fore closure sucks!

Fore closure sucks!

As Blake prepares to leave, Dominique announces herself and enters the office (Marsha is always trying to explain why people just keep going in).  Blake does not know any Dominique Deveraux and believes she is a reporter.  Dominique cannot understand why everyone believes she is a reporter.  I do.  It is because she is so darn cryptic.  What is Dominique hiding from everyone?  Blake has no time or interest in getting to know Dominique now (he did just lose Denver Carrington).  When Blake leaves to retrieve Krystle and go home, we learn why Dominique is in Denver and is so cryptic.  She is a Carrington! 

 Why even try and stop people, Marsha

Even though he has lost Denver Carrington, nothing will stop Blake from enjoying Fallon's wedding.   Before the wedding, there is a chance encounter between Alexis and Krystle at a salon.  Since Krystle is pregnant, we cannot have a cat fight this season.  Instead, what we do have is Krystle slinging mud at Alexis after Alexis questions the paternity of Krystle's child to the salon staff.

There is much excitement for Fallon's wedding.  Fallon does not seem that excited.  The headaches are getting worse and she confides in Steven what has been happening.  As a gaggle of women attend to Fallon and screech, Fallon screams out in pain and asks to be left alone.  She can finish her make up on her own. 

 The screeching of the women would give me a headache too!

Family and friends are at the bottom of the stairs of the mansion waiting for the bride but Fallon never shows.  Krystle goes upstairs to see what has happened and notices that Fallon took off her wedding attire.  Blake, Jeff and Krystle go to the window to see Fallon drive off.  Jeff chases after Fallon in his car while Blake decides a better course is to scream out Fallon's name while standing in the rain. 

 At least Fallon left the wedding dress behind, maybe Blake can sell it

Now we all know what is going to happen as Jeff chases after Fallon.  As always, there is a work crew.  This time, the crew it working at night and in the rain.  Fallon is able to get past it without a problem, but Jeff cannot make it.  He is blocked.  So, taking a page from Blake, Jeff gets out of the car and cries for Fallon.  Don't these guys know that it is loud noises the causes Fallon's headaches.

 That's not going to help, Jeff

That's not going to help, Jeff

Fallon continues to speed down the highway and is approaching a truck which starts to blow its horn to warn her.  That loud sound, of course, drives Fallon even crazier who erratically turns the wheel and cries out.  Fallon really needs to stop driving off when in distressed.

In addition to the bride running off, Fallon's wedding has additional drama as the police show up to speak with Alexis.  Dex follows (now that he and Alexis are an item again) to protect Alexis, or just to be an annoying pain in the ass.  The police inform Alexis that they know she paid Mark $100,000 and believes that Mark was blackmailing Alexis.  When Mark demanded more, the two tussled and Alexis managed to push the very drunk Mark off the balcony.  There are also witnesses.  The police arrest Alexis and put her in a holding sell with the other prostitutes.  Ooops, did I say "other".  Alexis is not a prostitute.  She looks more like a courtesan.

Memorable Dialogue 

Alexis:  When you came to my apartment tonight, why didn't you tell me who you were.
Dominique:  Maybe my tender ego was bruised because you didn't recognize me.  May I go now.
Alexis:  What are you doing. . .here. . .in Denver.
Dominique:  Among other things, obviously, making you very uncomfortable. 

Alexis:  Oh, God.
Kirby:  Oh yes, pray to him, pray hard and quickly. 

Kirby:  You bitch! 
Alexis:  If I am, take a lesson from me.  You made need it in life.

Sammy Jo:  What I do want is to be a real mother to my son, and I intend to have him raised by a real man.
Steven:  Adam?
Sammy Jo:  Why not?
Steven:  I'll tell you why not.  That brother of mine becomes father of my son over my dead body, or yours. 

 Dominique:  Won't it just knock their socks off when they find out I'm a Carrington.

Alexis:  Cuff me?  How dare you do a thing like that.
