Episode 217: Blasts From the Past
Well, before we get to the interesting stuff, let's just cover Sammy Jo and Tanner. Sammy Jo finds Tanner in a church and without looking directly at him tells him that she has always wanted men who were unavailable or bad for her, and he is no exception. She can't help it but she is in love with Tanner. Tanner does not know what to say but it did not matter because Sammy Jo exited. Alone, Tanner decides to pray the Sammy Jo away.
Monica is making light of the National Inquisitor's accusations that she and Jeff are lovers. Sable finds out that Adam is responsible for the photos and tells Jeff and Monica and also where Jeff can find Adam. Jeff storms into the lounge at the Carlton, with Monica and Sable in tow, and jumps Adam. The fight between the two is broken up by Alexis's chauffeur as Alexis returns from Switzerland. When Jeff tells Alexis that Adam accused he and Monica of incest, Alexis assures them that it is impossible for there to be incest between the two because Monica and Jeff are not brother and sister. Jason Colby is not Monica's father. Clearly, Alexis does not understand the concept of incest. Even if Jason is not Monica's father, Jeff and Monica are still cousins since their mothers (Sable and Francesca) are sisters.
That important detail aside, Sable is enraged that Alexis told Monica the truth in the lobby of the Carlton hotel. Jeff tries to hold Sable back but let's go because Adam cannot shut up. Sable jumps Alexis and Jeff resumes his fight with Adam. Monica is caught in the mayhem at the Carlton. After the fight, Sable tells Jeff that she had told Alexis the truth years ago when she thought she could trust her cousin. Then, two years ago, Alexis told Jason the truth and he cut off both Monica and Miles. Sable explains to Monica that her father was a diplomat who had died. But, that is not the real truth. Sable tells Blake, because she needed to speak to somebody, that she had been raped. (Now, I get it is a soap opera and all, but how does Sable know for sure that Jason is not the father. There was no DNA test and Jason must be able to count to nine and a half to figure out that he was not the father. Maybe he was so excited, that he did not care.)
After this whole imbroglio, Sable is determined that the child she is carrying will be born and raised free of the lies and of the conflict with Alexis. She tells Dex that she is pregnant. Dex is excited at the thought of being a father, but Sable does not want Dex involved in this child's life because of Alexis. Sable will not have another family member of hers infected by Alexis. Dex promises that it is not over.
Blake pays a visit to the Matthews who have more documents from Tom Carrington. As Blake pumps them for information, he notices they are hiding something. We don't know what they know, but whatever they told Blake pisses him off to no end - he cannot believe his father did what he did. Now, Blake is determined to find The Collection. Blake also learns that some other people are looking for The Collection when Handler stops Blake on the street and tells him that he is representing some very powerful people who are willing to take The Collection off his hands. Blake fakes ignorance but Handler knows better. Handler blackmails Blake - let them have The Collection and he will make sure that Blake is not charged with the murder of Chisolm.
Alexis discovers that The Collection that Grimes was talking about is Nazi plunder and does not care if it ruins the families. She will do what she has to do to save her empire since Sable has got her good.
Finally, we learned who killed Roger Grimes. While cleaning up the cottage, Fallon finds Zorelli's bugging device and while playing with it, Zorelli learns they are being bugged. There must be a mole in the police department, and Zorelli stages a fight with his old partner to discover the mole. Meanwhile, Blake has finally shown interest in Fallon's dreams, but questions Sammy Jo about them and not Fallon. Zorelli and Fallon believe that Alexis is somehow involved in the death of Grimes. Fallon convinces Alexis to come to the cottage. Alexis agrees but is creeped out by the place (I would too since Zorelli and Fallon still have not bothered to clean the cobwebs). When Zorelli touches Alexis to get her to remain, it sparks Fallon's memory. Fallon recalls that Alexis was pleading with Grimes because Blake threw her out and now Grimes was leaving her. Alexis pulls a gun on Grimes to stop him from leaving her, but he knocks it from her hands. As he strikes Alexis, Fallon, who walked in on them and is 6, picks up the gun and shoots Grimes. There we have it, Fallon killed Roger Grimes.
Monica: You got to admit, we make a cute couple.
Jeff: Monica, please
Monica: Jeff, you're becoming a prude, aren't you
Alexis: It's just not possible for there to have been incest between Monica and Jeff
Alexis: You mean you haven't told her
Sable: Don't you dare
Alexis: Well, that's unspeakably cruel of you
Sable: Out of bounds
Alexis: Monica and Jeff are not brother and sister
Alexis: I'm sorry to have to tell you this Monica, but Jason Colby isn't your father.
Sable: How dare you
Alexis: Look at her [referring to Sable], she's like a rabid bitch.
Alexis: Adam, they are ruining me. They are stripping me of Colby Co. and everything else I own. If hey are going to bring me down, I'm going to bring every one of them down with me.
