Episode 207: Tankers, Cadavers To Chance
Even though it will cost Fallon her family and Zorelli his job, the two just can't keep their hands off one another. They don't even have the decency to hide their relationship as the two arrive in the hospital together. Blake makes a few snide remarks to Fallon but let's it go. Later, Zorelli is taken off the case, and he is so angry, that he has the bright idea of going to the Carrington Mansion to threaten Blake for pulling the strings. Blake claims he pulled no such strings but is glad that they are coming to their senses over at the Harmon Springs police station. As expected, the incident between Blake and Zorelli becomes ugly, but Zorelli wins the prize as Fallon decides to run off with him.
Meanwhile, Blake asks Dex to hold onto some evidence regarding the Colterton mining project and the Collection. Though Blake has burned some evidence, he did not burn it all because it may be useful in the future. Blake also believes that the diver, Gibson, was onto unearthing the Collection since he was in both the small lake and Delta Rho (where the Collection was initially stashed). Dex suggests they dispose of the Collection - but Blake retorts that it is too valuable to destroy and may do good one day in the future when the taint of its origin is no longer devastating. This must be some powerful Collection.
The ranchers at Delta Rho don't bother to enter the burning barn to rescue Sammy Jo, even though one of them claimed that Sammy Jo is inside. I guess she is not paying them enough. Fortunately for Sammy Jo, Jeff arrives and enters the blaze to rescue Sammy Jo, but not before he knocks down Gibson and gets the ranchers to take care of him. (How gallant of Jeff?) In the hospital, Sammy Jo, who will be okay, claims that she recognizes the man that shot her - it was the same man that Krystle claimed was coming out of the lake in one of her nightmares. The man, Gibson, needs to get out of this, and he calls Sable and threatens her to either take care of matters or else he will make sure everyone knows that she hired him.
Adam, apparently taking a page from Fallon's working habits, decides he will pursue Virginia the best way he knows how, through stalking and creepy activities. After catching Virginia tearing up a letter from Dex (which Virginia later reads), Adam goes to Virginia's room to see what information he can find on her - and he finds the letter from Dex. In a very strange mating ritual, Adam tells Virginia he is aware of her past and suggests he learned it because Dex was telling Alexis. This devastates Virginia even though she has never once met Alexis. Adam later apologizes for bringing it up and invites her into his room to show the picture of his child. Naturally, this leads to sex.
The sex does not last long as Adam is interrupted with a phone call regarding those tankers. Alexis returns from Africa and claims to have paid the right bribes to the right people and her ships should be released in 24 hours. Adam later learns that during that 24 hour period, there will be a 2 hour auction but officials in Natumbe have assured him that there is nothing to worry about. Alexis is somewhat comforted by the fact that Hamilton Stone will take care of matters. And, Hamilton Stone, sure did - but for Sable. Sable receives the good news from Joanna, and with a picture of some tankers pays Alexis a visit in her suite. Alexis is clueless as to why Sable would claim that Alexis's tankers would look better with the Sable Co. emblem, so Sable spells it out that she purchased the tankers at the auction - for 10 cents on the dollar. Alexis cannot believe it - and Sable reminds her that she will not be satisfied until she has everything that Alexis owns - and this is the second installment.
Alexis: Forget Heath, what about Sable?
Alexis: Yes, have you been dipping into her till.
Alexis: Just a minor set-back, but Adam is taking care of it
Fallon: Well, Adam is a walking set-back. I am sure he'd be perfect for the job.
Alexis: Oh my God, don't tell me you're still here. I thought you were just a temporary infestation.
Sable: Well, Alexis, I see you survived Africa. It's a dangerous place for most animals, but no problem for you, of course.
Alexis: The sable is an animal you know - from the rodent family.
Sable: Hmm. . . speaking of the rodent family - how are you Adam - come to visit mummy
Sable: I care for Blake as a close friend and if you chose to go after him with a sordid murder accusation, I'll personally pull the plug on you.
Alexis: That, I'd like to see.
Sable: Well, hang on to your chair, deary, because when I do, you'll certainly have a ring side seat.
Sable: Oh you know my name, why don't you use it?
Alexis: And why don't you use the door, and slither back to where you come from and please don't make those ghastly hissing noises as you go - it offends the neighbors.
Alexis: Darling, I handle people, not situations.
Blake: It was fortunate that Jeff came along and saved her.
Sable: Oh, I should have to treat you like a hero now, Jeff.
Sable: Jet lag has apparently dimmed your bulb more than usual, Alexis.
