Episode 209: Virginia Reels
Sable pays Dex a visit in his place (the first time this season we actually see where Dex lives) and has a request of him. She wants Dex to set up a meeting with Blake so she could explain why she hired Gibson. Dex, impressed, agrees. At her meeting with Blake, Sable tells Blake that she sent the diver to the lake in an attempt to find dirt to destroy Jason. A few years back she heard Jason on the phone discussing the mining project and the Collection and she had never seen Jason so scared. Sable believed that whatever was buried could harm Jason and she wanted to discover it. Becoming friends with Blake and Krystle was never part of the plan. Blake seems satisfied especially since Sable has no idea what the Collection is and that she never sent Gibson to Delta Rho.
Dex, on the other hand, was overly impressed with Sable. I guess being with Alexis all these years really has given Dex low expectations of women. Sable acts incredulous to Dex being impressed by her honesty - but he soothes her by saying he is more impressed with her soft side. It is clear the two are getting closer. Well, it is definitely clear to Joanna who has noticed that Sable is being short with her. Joanna believes, and correctly, that Sable is becoming antagonistic towards her because she has her sights on Dex. Joanna assures Sable that the field is clear for her to pursue Dex - which doesn't go over well with Sable. Hence, we have proof why women in power cannot help one another succeed. Adam also notices the tension between Sable and Joanna over Dex and decides to use it to become closer to Joanna.
Dex also has his hands full with Virginia. He arrives home to find Virginia there with the lingerie that Adam gave her. Virginia cannot believe Dex told Adam and Alexis about her past. Dex assures her that he never said a word. Of course, Dex confronts Adam - and the timing is perfect - at a meeting in Denver Carrington that Fallon bothered to attend. Dex pretty much kicks Adam's ass. Virginia, on the other hand, takes a more adult approach - she leaves Denver. Blake tries to convince her to say and acknowledges that Adam is not the best of people (this after he told Adam how much he cares for Virginia and how the whole family should support her). Virginia does not tell Blake what Adam did but says she is free and can start living her life. Goodbye Virginia.
Zorelli and Fallon are growing closer. Zorelli is less inclined to go to work because of his stupid desk job. When he does arrive, he engages in insubordination as he gets a hold of the items found with Gibson when he was arrested. Zorelli takes what looks like a map and photocopies it. Zorelli arrives home to find Fallon cooking him dinner. I guess that does not happen often since he left his pizza outside and pulled a gun on Fallon since he believed her to be a burglar or something. Um, you did give her a key. Zorelli likes the idea of coming home to having a woman cooking him dinner and goes to take a shower. While in the shower, Fallon is looking for some matches and happens to come across the photo of Fallon comparing the photo of Grimes to the body at the morgue. Fallon finally realizes she is fool (how long will that last).
Who is also a fool? Gibson. Blake hits him up for more information. When Blake learns that Gibson believes the Collection to be nothing more than gold that he wanted to hide from the government, Blake pretty much double crosses him by not helping him with the criminal charges against him. Sucks for you Gibson. Duh, it was his daughter in law you shot!
But, it doesn't suck for Sable. Okay, that is not entirely true. Sable pays Fritz Heath a visit at the casino to let him know that she purchased his gambling marker. Now, Sable is willing to allow the debt slide (and not tell anyone of his embezzlement) if Heath gives her some dirt on Colby Co. Heath would not betray his employer. Sable feigns being impressed by Heath's loyalty, but reminds him the marker is due in less than a week and that the collateral is his home and a family trust. This drives Heath crazy - he just cannot go to jail. Heath arrives hours early (like in the middle of the night) for a meeting with Sable to give her the information she desires. Heath, however, demands $5 million for the information, but the information is enough to bring down Colby Co and Alexis with it. Sable laughs at the idea of giving Heath such a sum of money. Not a good idea to laugh at an emotionally unhinged man like Heath. He pulls out a gun and points it at Sable.
Heath - Mrs. Colby, if you are implying
Sable - No, I'm not implying - that was a declarative statement.
Sable - I am, uh, how should I put this, emotionally burdened by the idea of Alexis at the helm of Colby Co. Now, if you'd help me wake up one morning relieved of that burden, I would be forever grateful.
Fallon - I always wonder what you were made of Adam. Now I know - it comes out of the back of the horse.
Adam: Well then what do you suggest?
Fallon: You could take an early retirement, that would save the company some money.
Adam: Do you work here?
Dex: Well, kicking her out of here like a junk yard dog.
Sable: [laughing] Like a junk yard dog. You must teach me more of your Wyoming witticisms.
