EPISODE 200: Body Trouble
Blake gains his composure and assures Krystle that he does not recognize the body at the morgue. Zorelli is not so certain and investigates a little further. When he goes out to the ranch at the Carrington Mansion, Fallon tells Zorelli that Blake is due west, in Los Angeles. Since the two have some sort of flirting rapport, Zorelli invites Fallon to the morgue to take a look at the body herself. With nothing better to do (she must have taken the day off at Denver Carrington), Fallon agrees, and even wears bright colors to cheer up the dead ones, as Zorelli suggested.
After learning that people in the morgue actually eat while working, Fallon looks at the body, and it is somewhat familiar, but she is not entirely sure. Fallon also wonders why Zorelli, with a PhD in psychology, is working as a police officer. Zorelli says he is fascinated by the criminal mind, especially that of a murderer. I wonder if that is true, then why is Zorelli working on the police force in Harmon Springs, Colorado. How many murders are taking place in Harmon Springs (excluding what occurs at the Carrington estate)? Zorelli leaves Fallon in the police station when he learns something weird is happening to the body.
Blake brings Krystle to Los Angeles, where, apparently, medical ethics do not exist. Not only do we learn that Dr. Hampton gave Blake permission not to tell Krystle that she suffers from an Artery to Vein Malformation (AVM) of the brain as a result of the riding accident, but that someone at the hospital informed Sable Colby of Krystle's testing. I guess one of the perks of sitting on the board of the medical center (and giving it millions) is to learn who is coming and going.
You would think Sable would keep this information to herself. Oh, but not Sable. She decides to visit Blake in the waiting room of Dr. Hampton's office and offer her support. Sable has always been impressed by the love that Blake and Krystle has - and after the way Jason treated her, that is all she has. At first, Blake is angered that someone broke his confidentiality, but quickly warms to Sable.
As Sable sticks her claws into Blake, Dr. Hampton finally tells Krystle that there is no telling what the AVM may make Krystle do - even kill that poor young man. We also learn, thanks to Sable getting a medical lesson (all hypothetical of course, and again, a violation of medical ethics), that Krystle's chances are not good if they do have to operate.
Since Blake is dealing with Krystle's medical condition, he is still unable to run Denver Carrington. Adam, who has really been an asshole of late, is more than willing to take control. Blake will not allow it and puts him in charge, along with Fallon (who really never goes to work) and Jeff. Adam is less than thrilled, and things get worse for him, as Morgan Hess, the only private investigator in Denver, found no incriminating information against the Atkinson's. In fairness to Hess, it really is hard to find such information when all you do is drink beer in your hotel room. Presented with Hess's "findings", Adam fires him.
Adam is not the only one not happy that Jeff will be working at Denver Carrington, Sammy Jo does not like the idea of Jeff and Fallon working together. Jeff does appease her, but then totally ruins it when he calls Sammy Jo "Fallon" after they make love. Jeff tries to play it smooth and claims he was dreaming about falcons. Sammy Jo may be blonde, but she is not that stupid - and she kicks him out. Sammy Jo is not entirely through with Jeff though, as she talks with Krystle and Krystle tells Sammy Jo that you will always have to live with a man's past - just as she has to deal with Alexis. (You ask me, I think I would much rather deal with Fallon than Alexis)
As for Alexis, she is still in Africa and will be out of pocket for 48 hours, which leaves Dex with the shit show, which is also known as ColbyCo. Dex cannot find anyone and no one has any answers. A huge bond needs to be paid, and the ColbyCo comptroller, Fritz Heath, is M.I.A., as well as his assistant. The assistant does come back to work the next day - just in time to tell Dex that she has no idea where Heath is and that it is so unlike him. Well, Dex, this land you want from Alexis really better be worth this headache.
When Blake returns from Los Angeles, Fallon tells him that she spent the day with Zorelli and that she saw the corpse. Fallon confides that the body looks somewhat familiar but does not know how. Blake admits that the corpse looked like someone he knew 25 years ago but that man would be in his 50s now. Fallon suggests that the man may have had a son, but Blake was emphatic that he did not. Well, Blake became less emphatic when he finally found what he was looking for in the basement. (You would think the basement would be nicer). Blake pulls out a picture of him with the corpse and asks the picture (who else are you going to talk to) if he had a son.
The next day, Blake is entertaining some campaign contributors at his home. Krystle decides that she is going to collect all the plates and start tossing them down the hall. For a person with an AVM of the brain, Krystle has incredible aim, managing to knock off champagne glasses on a tray, hitting the Venus De Milo, and knocking out a vase. Good thing Fallon has great reflexes, or else she would have been nailed too. Blake calms Krystle down and tells her they need to talk. As Blake is taking Krystle upstairs, Zorelli steps by to tell the family that Krystle could not have killed the body found in the lake, since the individual was killed 20-30 years ago.
Hess: Your mother never had any problem with my services.
Adam: My mother is a very warm and kind-hearted person and she excuses employees who've outlived their usefulness. Claire, Mr. Hess has a hard time finding things, would you help him locate the front door.
Zorelli: So have you been thinking?
Fallon: Well, I try and do that at least once a day.
Fallon: Why is Sammy Jo here, I thought this was a business affair.
Jeff: Excuse me, Fallon, I have somebody interesting to talk to.
