Episode 216: Here Comes The Son
There was not just one skeleton under the Carrington mansion, but two. This is getting to be too much for Blake - there is now four dead people. He wants to come clean with this - there are families involved. Dex, Jeff and Sable convince Blake to keep things quiet for one more week. Blake agrees. Besides, it will give them time to talk to Grime's widow. Yes, he was married as Blake learned from Grimes's old business partner. Blake also learned that someone ransacked that partner's office looking through files. Blake is certain that someone is trying to find The Collection, and appears to be one step ahead of them.
When Dex and Jeff speak to Grimes's widow, Emily, they learn that Grimes also has a son, Dennis. Dennis took all of Roger Grimes's things a few years ago. Dex and Jeff would like to speak to Dennis, but Emily tells him that Dennis is in prison. Truth is, Dennis is not in jail. He is out and, for some reason, is spying on Fallon, and working with Handler. Hmmmm . . . Could it be that Handler is a crooked cop?
At least we know Zorelli is not a crooked cop, because he is no longer a cop. That is why he was at the Carrington Mansion - he wanted to tell Blake himself that he quit the force for Fallon. Since Blake was a little shook up after finding bodies under his house, he was short with Zorelli and Fallon, but was forceful the next day when he accused Zorelli of being a fraud and that he would get Zorelli if he ever hurt Fallon. Despite such a threat, Blake suggested that Fallon and Zorelli move into the cottage on the property. Fallon is down with it because she wants the privacy.
Now, why would the Carrington estate be meticulously groomed and beautiful and then have a piece of shit cottage without electricity? Even worse, why would Zorelli and Fallon go out to the cottage in the dark when it has no electricity? You know why, so Fallon can see Dennis Grimes spying on them and swear she saw Roger Grimes. Zorelli checked the area and did not see Dennis at the window. Clearly, his policing skills have diminished since quitting the force a few days before. The creepiness of the cottage is enhanced by this creepy lullaby that is now stuck in Fallon's head after she overheard Krystina humming it. Now, I have had songs stuck in my head, but not for days like Fallon.
Tanner takes Sammy Jo to the ghetto for a "date". Heck, if the streets are good enough for his kids, why not for Sammy Jo. Sammy Jo suggests that the kids come to Delta Rho. Tanner brings the kids over but all Sammy Jo and Tanner can manage to talk about is celibacy, partaking in forbidden fruit and Tanner's commitment to God.
It's Monica's birthday, and it is a pretty crappy one at that. First, Jason did not call her. Second, she learns that her mother gone out and got herself pregnant. Third, and the topper of it all, everyone at The Carlton is staring at her and Jeff. Apparently, all these high society people love reading the National Inquisitor, which has the same style sports page on the back as Alexis's newspaper. (You think they could come up with a better prop.) At least one woman has the decency to show Jeff the paper with it's front page story suggesting that Jeff and Monica are romantically linked. Jeff goes to the editor and causes a commotion which only leads to more incriminating photos. Smart move, Jeff.
Finally, and as noted - Sable got knocked up. She has not told Dex yet, because it would be too complicated considering Dex's attachment to Alexis. Monica naturally assumes that Sable will just abort the child. But, Sable might enjoy having a second chance. She says as much to Blake. How about before having the second chance, you tell Dex the truth? You can't keep that secret forever. Ask Blake how well keeping secrets goes.
