Episode 87: Disappearance
The construction truck finally must have allowed Jeff to pass (after he got back in his car instead of crying out for Fallon in the rain). Jeff comes upon the scene of Fallon's accident, but the only injured party is the truck driver who swerved to avoid Fallon. Where is Fallon? The police would like to know that. She must have left the scene of the accident and into the mountains of Colorado. Jeff and the police spend hours looking for her, even going door to door (who lives out here), but they come up empty. When Jeff finally returns to the mansion, Blake has his trademark outburst (followed by apology) about trying harder to find Fallon.
Alexis most certainly will not spend the night in jail. Dex manages to get Alexis a lawyer who wakes a judge and a prosecutor to hold a bail hearing. The judge sets Alexis's bail at $2 million. That should not be hard for Alexis to raise, but Dex gets the money for her in a couple of hours. Dex and Steven bring Alexis back to the Penthouse. After Steven returns home, Alexis asks Dex to stay and to hold her (among other things). If Alexis wanted to be held, I am sure there were plenty of women in jail who would be willing to do that.
Losing Denver Carrington and Fallon has put Blake in a funk. A funk no one has ever seen from him. Alexis sees the look of defeat in Blake. Krystle, meanwhile, tries to console her husband by riding off to the oil field where Denver Carrington got its start. Pathetically, Blake asks Krystle if she is staying with him out of pity. Krystle, never, and the two embrace to the Dynasty theme (we need that every couple of episodes).
Adam is actually showing some common sense and turns down Sammy Jo's sexual advance. There is too much drama in the family to add to it. (C'mon, this is a soap after all.) Adam even makes amends with Alexis as Alexis asks Adam to work on her defense team for Mark Jenning's murder. Adam is game.
If Alexis is getting closer to Adam, that means only one thing - she will be pulling away from Steven. Alexis can only have one favorite child at a time. Steven comes across a discrepancy in the Colby Co. books. A $5 million discrepancy that Steven attributes to the bribe that Alexis has paid to Rashid Ahmed to sabotage Blake's deal. Steven confronts Alexis and Alexis admits to it, but does not want Steven to tell Blake. Steven is too honest not to do that. It would kill him to keep such a secret from his father.
Steven tells Blake that he has proof that it was Alexis who paid Rashid Ahmed to double cross him. Blake always suspected it, but somehow this news gives Blake new life and purpose. He is going to make Alexis pay for what she has done. Finding out that you were screwed by your ex-wife someone is what Blake needed to get out of his funk. Blake is energized to raise money (including taking a mortgage on the mansion) to start a new venture and to find Fallon. He also puts Claudia in charge of La Mirage (how come the bank doesn't own that?)
if Dominique is going to spend an indefinite amount of time in Denver, she might have wanted to tell that to her husband, Brady Lloyd. Brady is a record mogul who discovered his own version of the Jackson 5 and has made millions since. Dominique is happy to see Brady and tells him that she is remaining in Denver for the rest and for a business opportunity. In the meantime, Brady wants to cut a deal with Claudia to have Dominique sing at La Mirage. Dominique cannot handle that on her own? Claudia has no problem with Dominique's wish to sing at La Mirage.
Claudia, as well as everybody else, has a problem with Sammy Jo remaining at the mansion and interfering with the raising of Danny. When Sammy Jo gets into it with Claudia and the nurse concerning an appropriate toy for Danny, Steven kicks Sammy Jo out of the mansion. Claudia wants Steven to make peace, but Steven will not. He would rather go to court and retain custody of Danny than to deal with Sammy Jo.
Sammy Jo tries to get Krystle to get Steven to change his mind, but Krystle wanted Sammy Jo out weeks ago. Poor Sammy Jo tells Adam that she is going to New York but wants him to drive her and Danny to the airport so she can spend every last moment with Danny before leaving. Adam agrees. At the airport, Sammy Jo asks Adam to check in for her (can't do that now) while she grabs a scarf out of the car. Instead, Sammy Jo hails a taxi and takes off with Danny. This is definitely no act of maternal love. Sammy Jo expects some sort of payment for this action. First thing Sammy Jo should buy is a car seat.
Alexis: Your honor, I'm not going back to that cell with those wretched women. I can't go back there.
Adam: You're going to have to be absolutely honest.
Alexis: Adam, when have I been anything but honest.
Alexis: I don't like your tone of voice, Steven. I'm your mother, not one of your stenographers.
Steven: I'm going to say this straight, Sammy Jo, I want you out of this house.
Sammy Jo: My gay ex-husband saying it straight. It must be hard, a real chore for you.
Steven: What are you going to do?
Blake: I am going to teach her [Alexis] a lesson she's never going to forget. I'll pay her back. I'll bury her, just the way she tried to bury me.
Sammy Jo: My two best dresses were in those suitcases, honey lamb. But, if everything goes the way I plan, your mom's going to have more. Lot's more.
