EPISODE 201: Alexis in Blunderland
Blake is shook up to learn that the body has been dead for over 20 years old, but he suppresses his feelings. Fallon, on the other hand, becomes obsessed about the case. Too bad for her, no one wants to talk to her about it. She tried Jeff, but he has no more time for her fantasies. She gives him a kiss, which is witnessed by Sammy Jo - of course. Blake wants Fallon to drop it, but she keeps seeing him go into the basement. Fallon is determined to find out what is down there, but Blake, wisely, has it locked up. All Fallon is left with is dreaming about the corpse - which is pretty creepy.
Sammy Jo, after witnessing the kiss decides she is going to move back to the Carrington Mansion and bring along Danny. When Jeff stops by Delta Rho and sees what is going on, Sammy Jo is in no mood to talk and vaguely complains to Jeff about his kiss with Fallon. Of course, Sammy Jo does not say she saw the two kiss, so Jeff assumes Sammy Jo found about the night he and Fallon slept together, and he lets it slip out. Sammy Jo is pissed, but yet is still willing to move into the mansion. The following day, Sammy Jo decides to confront Fallon while she is riding horses (again, not working at Denver Carrington) and punches her into a tank of water. The two take their struggle into the mud and realize what is the point of fighting since neither wants Jeff.
You know who else doesn't want Jeff - Adam, at Denver Carrington that is. Adam pretends to be nice to Jeff, while snooping through Steven's files on the pipeline. Adam gets Jeff to agree that Jeff will focus on the pipeline (with Adam snooping at that), Adam will deal with the leases and mineral rights, while Fallon will "dabble" in communications. I guess dabbling only requires you to hang around the mansion. Adam also decides that he is going to use Steven's old secretary (now his), Claire, to get access to Jeff's file. Adam resorts to what he does best, seducing the secretary (like his soon to be ex-wife Dana) and Claire is more than willing since we all know Steven never made a pass at her.
Alexis returns from Africa to finally get her affairs in order at Colby Co. She cannot believe that poor Dex who has been working hard in her office has left it a mess. He fills her in that two bond payments that should have arrived, have not, and the comptroller, Fritz Heath, is nowhere to be seen. Heath shows up and assures Alexis that the payments were automatic and probably were placed into a different account. That satisfies Alexis for the time being. She then gives Dex the task of selling the Carlton. Dex meets with an attractive young woman and the two write prices on a napkin to come up with a final agreement.
Dex still is not doing this for free and really wants that land. Alexis cannot believe that Dex wants to be paid for his work in anything other than sex. Dex will take the sex, but he also wants the land. Just as Alexis is about to seduce Dex to ease his mind of the land, Fritz Heath arrives and informs the two that the bond payments will not be made since the two companies are bankrupt - a risk one takes when dealing with junk bonds. Dex doesn't trust Heath, especially since he is wearing a $10,000 watch but Alexis puts the blame solely on Sean Rowan, despite him not being that bright.
Alexis's last business dealing involves those tankers in Africa. Hamilton Stone was able to free up two of the tankers for her and is working on the other seven. Sable is happy that Hamilton Stone was able to do as she asked. As for the remaining seven ships, Sable believes they should be sold at auction for a fraction of the price. Stone is game.
While taking Krystina to the doctor's, Krystle is robbed by a young boy. Since Krystle feels in good physical shape, she chases the boy down some alley. The boy trips and Krystle attends to him, only to have his mother tell her to leave him alone. Krystle offers money so the boy can see a doctor, but the woman does not want her charity. The boy keeps the money anyway, and the family goes inside a shack where they live. Krystina, for some reason Jeanette decided to bring her along to chase down Krystle, seemed shocked that people would live in a box.
It's good to see the show dealing with poor people, especially since Krystle is about to receive some bad medical news and that story line will be as dead, or as comatose, as Krystle. Blake receives a call from Dr. Hampton who tells him what Blake had feared (and again does not call Krystle directly himself). Blake asks Fallon to round up the family, there is something they all need to be told.
Alexis: Krystle, throwing plates, I would have cancelled my whole trip to have seen that.
Adam: Yeah, it was pretty serious actually.
Alexis: I've known her for years, she have never been able to throw a tantrum.
Alexis: How ridiculous, you just don't throw things, you throw them at somebody.
Krystle: Blake, I don't have a headache tonight, do you?
Jeff: You'd strangle a paralyzed monkey to get what you wanted.
Adam: What an exciting thought!
