Episode 208: All Hands on Dex
There are a lot of angry people in Denver. Alexis is super pissed at Sable for seizing her tankers that she tosses the picture of them at her cousin - who wisely ducks while maintaining her smile. Adam arrives too late to break the news to his mother, but warns about Hamilton Stone's loyalties. Sable reminds Adam of his split loyalties between his parents. After Sable leaves, Adam is ready to start a lawsuit to get the ships back. Alexis has no time for such formalities and asks Adam to connect her with a mercenary friend of his, Crey Boyd. Why try to get the ships back legally when you can have a group of mercenaries destroy them? In fact, if Alexis could, she would use mercenaries to destroy everything Sable owns.
Alexis pretty much seals the deal with Crey - but that is not the only thing she is ready to seal with him. Alexis is intrigued with the man, although Adam warns her not to get too close to him. The fact that Alexis is ready to jump into bed with Crey does not deter her from once again questioning Dex whether he has slept with Sable. Alexis understands Dex has urges, and she could care less if he sleeps with another woman (she doesn't know about Joanna), but as long as it is not the "insufferable slut". Once again, Dex storms out of Alexis's office since he is tired of being accused of sleeping with Sable. Now, when one accuses you of such action, the appropriate response is to do it. But, I am getting ahead of myself.
Blake is also angry. His own daughter has betrayed him by continuing her relationship with Zorelli. He is also concerned that the diver Gibson knows too much and wants to question him. He pulls a few strings to question Gibson in his hospital room. At first, Gibson refuses to divulge who is he working for, but once Blake tells him that someone is leaving him hanging - he tells Blake that Sable Colby hired him. Blake confronts Sable. He is angered that he let her into his family and his home and she did this to them. Sable tries to explain herself, but is interrupted by Alexis, who just happens to be on Sable's floor. Or, more likely, she was stalking Blake. Alexis uses the opportunity to antagonize Blake and claim that he is fooling around with Sable while his poor wife is in a coma in Switzerland. If you really want to set off Blake, just mention Krystle (Gibson made that mistake). Blake had to leave before he would do something violent to Alexis and before Sable could explain herself.
Anger visits Sammy Jo in her hospital bed. While enjoying some chocolates, some stranger shows up in her room and destroys a stuffed rabbit in an attempt to find drugs. Oops, he visited the wrong room. Somehow, this man who works at a youth center and confused Sammy Jo with one of his kids could not remember the faces of all the youth in his home (it is like 12 of them). He also couldn't tell that Sammy Jo is no longer a teen. The man later returns to apologize, without a gift. Then, we learn his name is Tanner McBride. While Tanner is apologizing, Sammy Jo gets a cramp in her foot. I guess it is common to get a cramp in your foot when you are laying in bed all day recovering from a gun shot wound to the abdomen. At least the cramp gives us the opportunity to have Tanner giver her a foot massage which Jeff overhears and thinks something else. Sammy Jo assures Jeff she has another cramp for him to help out with and they kiss.
Jeff has some anger of his own - in his defense of Fallon. Jeff is tired of Adam's sniping about Fallon. Adam is right that Fallon doesn't show up to work and is sleeping with the cop, but he does not need to throw it into Blake's face every chance he gets. Adam should think about Blake every once in a while. We end up with the obligatory male fight in the office - and as always, Adam loses.
Adam can't think about Blake, because he is too busy thinking about Virginia and getting her to be a nasty little girl that he thinks she is. At first, Virginia blows Adam off until she see Dex. Adam takes that signal to buy Virginia lingerie and convince her to put her hair up and dress like a whore. No wonder Adam doesn't do very well with woman. Virginia wants none of it and kicks Adam out.
The final angry person is Captain Handler who refuses to budge and keeps Zorelli on phone duty. Zorelli tries to get back on the case but it does not go well as Handler promises to fire him if he does not leave the office. Blake is less concerned about Zorelli investigating the case than Alexis getting involved. Blake also fears that Sable is just a front for Jason who is ready to sell the other two families out. The only way Blake can stop Alexis is to get something on her - a bigger hammer, so to say.
Well Blake, there is no need for you to get the hammer, as Sable just got it. After Blake and Alexis left her apartment, Joanna arrived hoping to see a jubilant Sable. Sable, on the other hand, was still upset with her confrontation with Blake. Joanna took care of Sable's despondent mood, as she just acquired Fritz Heath's gambling marker, in the tune of $210,000. With that marker, Sable can pressure Heath into divulging Colby Co secrets. Sable is so happy that she happens to kiss the first man who walks into her apartment (Sable needs to learn to close the door) - and that man is Dex!
Alexis: You would pull the plug on a dying man's respirator if you thought it would do you some good.
Sable: Oh, you're talking about yourself
Alexis: Now, there's the door, use it. . [dialogue with Adam] . Out!
Sable: Very pleasant evening. What a mess. You really must learn to respect other people's property.
Jeff: Fallon has a good heart.
Blake: I know, it's her judgment that concerns me now.
Alexis: It's not a game because you're trying to destroy me, but you can't because I'm indestructible.
Sable: We'll see.
Crey (to Alexis): And you are not exactly what I expected when Adam said he was bringing his mother. I can think of more exciting things to seize than your ships.
Zorelli: Captain, look if I can just question this guy.
Handler: The only questioning you will be doing it where's the tree and do we need a ladder to get the cat down.
Alexis (to Sable and Blake): Well, well, well, what do we have here - a lover's quarrel
Alexis: Poor Krystle on life support and barely breathing in Switzerland and her devoted husband is breathing down heavily that trollop's neck.
Joanna: I came over to congratulate you, I thought you'd be jumping up and down.
Sable: Yes, I would be if I could be jumping up and down on Alexis Colby's head.
Jeff (to Adam): God help your family because I think they actually love you.
Alexis: I never thought I would be the one to defend Krystle's memory.
Sable: I'm ashamed to call that woman, cousin. I'm ashamed that my family blood courses through her veins. I won't be content until I have a hammer so large, it can pound Alexis Colby into the ground.
Alexis: I want that Sable Colby destroyed. I want everything that that woman possesses blown off the face of the Earth. . .I won't rest until that woman rots in hell!
