Episode 215: No Bones About It
Twisted, forbidden love is in the air. Tanner visits Sammy Jo out at Delta Rho to explain himself and why he became a priest. He basically did so because his brother was a bad-ass who died at 18. As a result, Tanner wanted to help people and thought being a priest was a good idea. He also thought it was a good idea to bring Sammy Jo to his brother's grave instead of just telling her over coffee or something. Now, Tanner is not so sure that being a priest is such a great idea. There are plenty of professions that allow you to help people without taking a vow of chastity.
The coziness between Monica and Jeff intrigues Adam who likes hanging around the Carlton. For some reason, the Carlton has a photographer (maybe on loan from Aaron Spellin's Love Boat ) and Adam gets the photographer to take some incriminating photos of Jeff and Monica. Then, he buys the entire role - which I guess sucks for those other guests who had their photo taken. They should understand the greater value at stake.
When Jeff is not being intimate with his sister, he is desperate to cock-block Sable from getting too close to Blake. Dex really wishes Jeff would drop it. Besides, even if Sable is after Blake, give Blake some credit - since Krystle still is alive. Jeff feels Blake won't notice what will happen until Sable has wrapped her claws around his heart (since Sable is some sort of vamp???). Sable probably does have feelings for Blake. She is definitely getting closer to Krystina. Still, Sable tells Dex she has no romantic feelings for Blake and she senses a little bit of jealously in Dex's tone. More importantly, Dex needs to get away from Alexis - she has cast a spell on him.
Then we have Fallon and Zorelli. Zorelli takes Fallon out to the lake to pump her for information with respect to her grandfather. Fallon retells a story of going into the basement of the mansion as a young child because she thought there were ghosts. There, were no ghosts, just her grandfather. Now that she told the story, it was time for Zorelli to skinny dip with her. When Blake learns that Zorelli had spoke to the Matthews, he tells Fallon. Fallon cannot believe it since she was sure Zorelli was off the case - and he was. Miraculously, Zorelli was put back on the case just as she goes to confront Zorelli. Fallon cannot believe it. (Haven't we heard this before.)
Handler calls down Blake to answer some routine questions with respect to the death of Chisolm. Even though the police are not sure whether it was a murder or suicide, Handler wants to know Blake's whereabouts at the time of Chisolm's death. Adam, who happened to be at the station, tells Blake to remain silent. Handler lets Blake go. Adam tells Blake he was glad to be there to prevent him from speaking. Blake is less than thrilled and thinks Adam set him up. Likewise, Phoenix thinks Adam set her up. When he arrives to see how she is doing, Adam is greeted by Phoenix with a rifle. Adam convinces her to put it down and that he is working to protect her and in her interest.
Sable stops by the Brewsky Gallery and the appraiser is well aware of the painting. Sable convinces him to tell Alexis that the painting is of little value. Coincidentally, someone else had been inquiring about Freidrich Stahl's paintings. That is no coincidence, and Sable tells Blake as such. Someone else is after The Collection. Maybe that someone else can help Blake, Jeff and Dex because they can't find a thing.
The Matthews had dropped off a box of Tom Carrington's things to Blake and said there was a confession letter whereby Tom confessed to the Grimes murder. Blake could not find the letter in that box but there was a sketch that shows that the tunnels extended under the mansion. Now Chisolm's babbling to Blake made sense. There must be tunnels under the house. Maybe that is where the Collection is? Dex has a geologist friend who has an apparatus that can find underground tunnels. They get a hold of the device and the three head into the basement and learn there is a tunnel. Could the Collection be there? No, but a skeleton is. Even better, just as they discover the skeleton, Zorelli arrives at the mansion on official police business to see Blake. Good times!
Sable: Well, Jeff Colby ought to know better. Dex, there is nothing between me and Blake except for Jeff's nasty rumors. Honestly, when is he going to grow up and stop treating me like the wicked step mother.
Dex: Not only does she hate me for sleeping with you, but she thinks I conspired with you to ruin her company.
Sable: Oh, you poor thing. I'll tell you what. The moment she gets back, I'll run into her suite and tell her that we were far too busy doing naughty things to conspire anything.
