Episode 26:  The Hearing

Blake has now been blind for six weeks, but at least he is going to get his hearing on how the underworld is taking over legitimate businesses, even the wholesome sport of football.  The public hearing that Blake had hoped has now been a closed door session.  Well, it will now be difficult for Blake to take on Logan in the court of public opinion.  The hearing is an absolute failure for Blake as the committee members are unwilling to take the word of a murderer who actually made a deal with the allegedly shady Logan.  Even worse, Logan does not show up to the hearing and claims that the committee has no jurisdiction in the matter.  Committee adjourned.  But, there is a bright spot for Blake, his sight does start to come back during the hearing.

Dr. Nick, who was at the hearing at Blake's request (but the two never spoke like they were supposed), notices that Blake's sight is coming back.  He instantly tracks down Krystle and tells her she can move out.  Krystle is totally turned off by Dr. Nick's eagerness.  She is still in love with Blake, even if he is treating her like shit.  Krystle wants Nick out of her life.

Meanwhile, Fallon wants Nick in hers.  But, to do that, Fallon must follow her mother's plan.  If only Fallon knew that Alexis always has an ulterior motive.  I guess she does not know that because her mother had been out of her life for 16 years.  Alexis's plan involves getting an appointment with Nick where she pretty much gets a feel for him and makes a pitch for Nick to be with Fallon.  Nick is not interested in Fallon.

Alexis is really becoming an interfering mother after all this time.  Good for her.  The bigger problem is with Sammy Jo and Steven.  Sammy Jo pretty much wants to live like a Carrington and expects Blake to pay for it.  Steven will not have her taking out money in the Carrington name.  No matter, Sammy Jo will buy an expensive fur and charge it to Steven.  Alexis sees this little act and threatens Sammy Jo.  Alexis, you have no power over Sammy Jo, since Sammy Jo knows your dirty little secret that Fallon's father could be anyone but Blake.

Jeff discovers that Gianni Malani, Nick's brother, was a Denver Carrington employee who was imprisoned on drug charges in the Middle East.  While in prison, he hanged himself.  Blake does not recall the man.  Well, maybe Blake should since it is the reason Nick is hell bent on revenge.

A letter arrives for Blake, which Fallon intentionally intercepts.  She reads it to Blake - it is words from newspaper articles and magazines informing Blake that Krystle is seeing her psychiatrist.  I wonder if Alexis did that herself or got someone to do it.  The shock of the news jolts Blake to seeing again.  Blake tells Joseph but then tells him not to tell anyone else, not even Krystle.  The sunglasses go back on as Blake will now pretend to be blind.  This is the beauty of hysterical blindness. 

 Did Alexis do that?

Memorable Dialogue 

Alexis:  Every human is not due to inherit a fortune one day - would you really find that so hard to take.
Nick:  No, but doesn't mean her mother can buy me as a filler for her Christmas stocking.
Alexis:  Fallon doesn't believe in Santa Clau, doctor.
