Episode 19:  Viva Las Vegas

It's storming in Denver, but that does not stop Blake from flying out to Las Vegas to take care of some business.  Krystle wants to go, but Blake tells her to stay home.  Fallon, who is over hearing the conversation, has a bright idea - she'll got to Las Vegas with her father.  Blake does not find this out, of course, until the plane is in the air.  Oh well, Blake is stuck with her.  Now, all Fallon needs to do is stay out of the way.  Yeah, like that will happen.

The storm is very scary for Sammy Jo, who also is having a nightmare about her father.  Afraid to be alone, Sammy Jo slips into Steven's room.  Apparently, Steven is a sound sleeper, because neither the storm, nor Sammy Jo calling Steven's name, wakes him.  If Steven does not feel like talking, it does not stop Sammy Jo from slipping into Steven's bed.  Steven awakes to find Sammy Jo in his bed, and she tells him of the nightmares.  The two engage in some mindless chatter, and Sammy Jo gives Steven a friendly kiss, which is noticed by Alexis. 

 Can somebody just tell her Steven is gay!

Can somebody just tell her Steven is gay!

If Steven is going to be straight, it better not be with that tramp niece of Krystle's.  Alexis confronts Krystle about it, but Krystle will not discuss this with Alexis.  [Krystle does gleefully tell Alexis she is pregnant though - zing!]  Krystle does talk to Sammy Jo about it.  Sammy Jo says it was innocent and Krystle believes her.  At the same time, Krystle tells Sammy Jo that she does not want to see her get hurt.  You know what is a better thing to tell Sammy Jo - that Steven is gay, or at least bisexual.  Heck, for that matter, Alexis should tell Sammy Jo that - it would probably stop Sammy Jo from pursuing Steven.  BTW, I have no idea, straight or gay, why Steven, based on what we have seen so far, would fall for Sammy Jo.

Alexis decides to talk to Steven about his choice in women.  Alexis understands that Steven has put his gay life behind him [has he?], so maybe he needs some help in picking woman.  Of course the only reason Alexis wants Steven to be straight is so that he will inherit Blake's money.  Just as Steven does not like Blake interfering in his love life, he is not going to take the same from his mother, who just happened to have been gone for 16 years. 

Dr. Nick's sister pays a visit and tries to convince Nick to give up this vendetta against Blake.  Nick cannot.  Blake is responsible for the suicide of their kid brother.  All Blake had to do was make a phone call, and he didn't, and Nick wants to know why.  Even if that is so Nick, what are you going to do about it?  He won't kill Blake, that is too easy, he is going to make him suffer.   It probably will be easy for Nick to make Blake suffer because he is forever hanging around the Carrington mansion.

In Las Vegas, Blake manages to sell a 45% interest in his football team to a Logan Rhinewood.  He also has the pleasure of giving Cecil the $9 million to repay the loan and pretty much ends his friendship with Cecil.  Cecil is having problems in many of his relationships.  Jeff decides to leave ColbyCo and will no longer be Cecil's puppet.  Jeff also tells Fallon he can play at her game.   

Ahh, Jeff, you cannot play better than Fallon.  Fallon really has loose morals.  After her spat with Jeff, Fallon sees Nick in the hall.  The two flirt a little.  Nick does not seem interested but comes home to find Fallon ready to seduce him, and Nick takes the bait.   Of course Nick took the bait.  You are being played Fallon.

With Blake in Las Vegas, Krystle decides to go riding.  While on her horse, Champ, Alexis, who had been skeet shooting, decides to fire one last shot - which knocks Krystle from the horse and drag her.  Nick, of course, finds her and brings her back to the mansion.  Krystle feels fine and is glad nothing happened to the baby.  But, Krystle, this is a soap opera, a fall always means a miscarriage.  And, on cue, just as she is telling Blake she is fine, Krystle feels sharp pain down betweeney.  She is rushed to the hospital and Krystle tells Blake she thinks she is losing the child. 

 Krystle is going down!

Memorable Dialogue

Fallon [to Blake]:  Why couldn't I marry somebody like you?   

Cecil:  The last of the Colbys.  The one who ought to take over this empire.  And, it is an empire, Jeff. 

Fallon:  And who the hell are you to question me anyway.
Jeff:  Your husband, babe.  Obviously, the last guy on the list.
