Plot OverviewEdit

Neither of the Carrington children seem that happy. Fallon really does not want to marry Jeff. She tells Cecil that she would marry him, but Cecil does not find that advantageous to either. Besides, the money has already been wired to Denver-Carrington, now Fallon needs to keep her end of the bargain. Also, Blake would love for Fallon to marry Jeff. But even if she would accept it, Fallon does have a problem : Jeff has not asked her to marry him. Cecil assures Fallon that she will make sure he does.


Meanwhile, Ted Dinard, Steven's old lover in New York, calls him and tells him he would like to see him. Steven does not believe it to be a good idea, but relents. While at dinner, Ted pretty much begs for him back but Steven is not ready for that. Ed Cleeves, a worker at the rig, has seen the intimacy between the two and cannot wait to tell all co-workers about Steven being a pervert. Steven is ready to fight him, but Matthew does so because he happens to dispise Ed. Matthew asks Steven about it, and Steven tells Matthew that he loved Ted, is not ashamed of it, and still wants to work for them. Matthew tells Steven he can do what he wants, he's not judgmental. Also, he doesn't want to believe Walter who suspects Steven to be a spy for Denver-Carrington.


The business is not going very well for Matthew and Walter. And, to make matters worse, the bank cuts off credit to the two. Michael decides, on his own initiative, to go to the bank and pretty much threaten harm to the banker's children if he does not cut off funds to Matthew and Walter. Michael pretends he is doing it at the request of Blake. When word gets back to Blake, he is furious. But, at the same time, he respects that kind of initiative. The end result - Michael gets a raise, will continue to drive but take on special projects as Blake sees fit. In the meantime, Michael also manages to get a date with Cecil's executive secretary, Jennifer.


While being invited at the mansion, Cecil gives Krystle some cryptic advice about the hunt and the prize - suggesting to her not giving what Blake wants most. That makes Krystle believe that Cecil may not be the friend that Blake believes him to be.

Since Fallon has a mission, she manages to get Jeff to elope with her at Las Vegas. When Fallon returns and wakes Blake and Krystle with the good news, they are excited. Fallon sure is not.

  • Blake Carrington [about Cecil Colby]: I don't trust him any more than he'd trust me in this. Because he has the heart of a rattlesnake and soul of a streetwalker.
  • Fallon Carrington: We were all out. Scattered. Like big old pin-rubies looking for their lost setting.
  • Cecil Colby: Here's to you, Krystle. In honour of you having married the second richest and the second hansomest and the second smartest man in Colorado.
  • Ed Cleves: Now, you're calling me a drunk and you're sticking up for the prevert? Maybe you're one of them too, huh, Blaisdel? Maybe that's what drove your old lady into the nuthouse?
