Episode 90: The Rescue
Blake and Jeff fly out to Seattle to determine whether Fallon is really dead. The police tell them that a chartered plane crashed and they have identified the male as Peter DeVilbis, but cannot make a positive identification of his female passenger because of the condition of the body. Blake believes there is hope that it was not Fallon on the plane. Jeff, on the other hand, is more certain it was her. Jeff's fears are realized when he sees Fallon's engagement ring that was part of the wreckage.
Blake and Jeff return to Denver with Fallon's remains. The first half of this episode shows the family's grief over the loss of Fallon. Poor Alexis has to learn about the death of her daughter while wearing horrible prison blues since she is still being held for leaving the country. The grief is touchy and over-dramatic at the same time. Ultimately, it wastes half of the episode.
The best part is the funeral where Jeff, who is more pissed than upset, let's Fallon's corpse have it as it being lowered into the ground. He ends his tirade by referring to Fallon as a bitch. Blake wants Jeff to get a hold of himself and to forgive Fallon. At least, L.B. brought tenderness back by pulling a flower from his jacket and dropping it in Fallon's grave.
Now that Fallon is buried, we can move on. Steven heads out to Los Angeles for his meeting with Sammy Jo. Meeting is not the correct term here, shake down is better. Sammy Jo demands $30,000 a month for life and she will forever give up any claim on Danny. Steven agrees. Fortunately for Steven, Adam, who still feels guilty about his role in this fiasco, followed Steven out to Los Angeles and has a plan of his own.
Adam waits for Sammy Jo to fall asleep in her hotel room and he slips in through an open window. Sammy Jo awakes just as Adam is about to take Danny. Horny and tipsy, Sammy Jo finds this as an opportunity to seduce Adam. Adam plays along until he gags and hog ties her and walks off with Danny. The family is happy for Danny's return although they know they are not done with Sammy Jo. Sammy Jo does call making threats, but Steven hangs up on her. At least this rescue brings Steven and Adam closer for the time being.
Adam's recovery of Danny may not be the only rescue referred to in the title of the episode. Blake is still struggling with getting funding for the new Denver Carrington's ventures. Billy Waite refuses to give Blake money. Blake is being thwarted by Alexis at every turn. Poor Krystle is forced to temporarily lay off staff members who never have any real speaking roles on the show. Blake is angered that Krystle did that but Krystle reminds Blake that he put her in charge of the house. (Blake is kind enough to continue to pay Marsha, his secretary, during these trying times.)
As things are looking dire for Blake, he is hit with another shock. Dominique, whose birth name is Millie Cox, returns to her aunt's home to go through her mother's stuff. Dominique must have taken more than just photos of her mother but we still need to pretend to be cryptic about Dominique's deal. Well no longer. After Blake storms off from Krystle for firing most of the staff, Dominique pays a social call to give her regards over Fallon's death. Instead, Dominique has better news - she and Blake have the same daddy.
Jeff: Why, Fallon? Why'd you leave me? You never love me. If you loved me, you wouldn't have left me for that bum - you bitch!
Sammy Jo [to Steven]: In the big mansion which may not belong to the Carringtons much longer, Well, enjoy the mansion and the kid, for as long as you can.
Dominique: Let's just say that I feel as I do because we have so much in common.
Blake: Such as, what?
Dominique: Our blood, our genes, our daddy.
