EPISODE 206: Delta Woe
It is amazing what a little bit of make-up and the pushing up of your hair can do. Dex immediately recognizes Virginia as Ginger, some young prostitute (or something) that he had a relationship (or something) with back in Ohio. Dex acts like he did not know, but Virginia is having none of it. She lays into Dex about how he abandoned her and all, but the fun is interrupted by Joanna, who was looking to wash Dex's back. Virginia leaves but gets into it again with Dex when he appears at a family gathering at the Carrington Mansion. This time, she throws her martini at Dex and storms off. Blake comforts Virginia and understands that she is still upset over the loss of Krystle. The rest of the family is not as ignorant, especially Sammy Jo who recalls this is now Virginia's second blow up.
Sammy Jo is feeling well enough after being knocked over at Delta Rho to hop back in the sack with Jeff (I could have sworn she told Fallon that she did not want Jeff). While snuggling in bed, Sammy Jo shows Jeff a pocket knife that was found at the scene. Jeff believes it belongs to the person who knocked her over, especially since it is engraved to "Scuba" and not many ranch hands would be scuba diving. Sammy Jo is certain it is not his. Later, at a family gathering at the Carrington Mansion, Sammy Jo re-tells the story, and Sable is surprised to hear about the knife. She leaves the gathering after Virginia's outburst and heads over to Mr. Gibson's hotel room, where he is entertaining some blond woman. After sending the blond woman into the bathroom, Sable warns Gibson to leave Denver or else she will go to the police and tell them the knife belongs to Gibson. Now, a smart man would leave - but not Gibson. He continues to snoop at the stables at Delta Rho, and this time he comes across a Sammy Jo packing heat. Better armed this time, Gibson shoots at Sammy Jo just as she shoots at him. The two fall to the ground and Delta Rho catches on fire, leaving poor Sammy Jo unconscious with flames around her.
Fallon decides not to spend the night with Zorelli (I guess it is important to leave at 4am) and returns to the mansion just in time to catch Adam lurking around as he lays into her about sleeping with the man who is trying to put her father in jail. Fallon wants to hear none of it from Adam, or from her father, for that matter. Blake is pissed with Fallon for spending the night with the officer, especially since he had come home from Switzerland. Blake wants Fallon to have nothing to do with Zorelli and he even intercepts a phone call from Zorelli and tells him to leave his family alone. Fallon stomps out and tells her father that what she does and who she does it with is her own business. Fallon has one other person to answer to - the ghost of Roger Grimes, who interrupts Fallon while she in the shower and tells her of her betrayal by sleeping with Zorelli. Yeah, Fallon has issues.
Also with issues is the poor ColbyCo comptroller, Fritz Heath. It looks like the man is a gambler, and a very bad one at that. Joanna came across that piece of information. Pleased, Sable decided to take over the file to ease Joanna's burden, especially the burden of sleeping with Dex. Ironically, Sable knows the individual, Aly Samarkian, who runs the gambling establishment to which Heath owes $210,000. While Sable is at the casino, Dex shows up (either following Sable or Heath) and the two engage in some heavy flirting which ends with Sable spraying Dex in the face with some perfume and tripping him. Dex promises to be more subtle if he wants Sable to fall for him, Sable will not even consider Dex until he is done with her hired help.
There is some developments with the Roger Grimes murder. The FBI returns with the blow up of the photo which shows that Blake knows the corpse - but Zorelli is holding that information tight - probably because of his feelings for Fallon. Sable pays Blake a visit and tells him that Jason had a few meeting with Jason Colby and that if Jason felt Grimes had stabbed him in the back he would not think twice about getting rid of him. Blake asks Sable if she knows anything else, and she does not. We do, however, as Blake speaks with Dex about this collection that is far more damaging that Grimes murder. The collection so desperately needs to be hidden that Blake is willing to confess to Grimes's murder just to keep investigators at bay.
Zorelli: Here we go, poor little rich girl shows her true colors.
Fallon: Well, I hope you got a good look at those colors because it will be a cold day in hell before you see them again.
Sammy Jo: But now I think it might be a permanent defect.
Fallon: Like Adam
Sammy Jo: Would you two knock it off. Don't you get tired of sniping at each other all the time?
Adam: I don't.
Fallon: Adam's dull wit needs all the sharpening it can get.
Dex: You really enjoy putting Alexis down, don't you?
Sable: Yes, it helps salve some of the wounds she's given me over the years.
Sable: Your friend and I have some business to discuss, why don't you go and powder your nose or something.
Sable: Your wit is about on par with your taste in women.
Sable: Alexis goes through men like they were cheese with an expiration date - now that's not me at all.
