Krystle may be looking bad, but Claudia is looking much better. She is working at Denver-Carrington and is living elsewhere. Claudia happens to be working in the file room which is perfect for Cecil who has learned that Denver-Carrington has developed an improved way to extract oil from shale. Cecil invites Claudia to dinner and she reluctantly accepts. At dinner, Cecil tells Claudia that he is willing to help her look for Matthew and Lindsay.
Steven, rejected by Claudia, is going to turn to some blonde bimbo - Dottie - even though there is someone living in the Carrington mansion who is willing to be with him - Sammy Jo. Blake happens to see the two leave and tells him the next morning that the woman is pretty much a hooker.
Fallon, on the other hand, is having a rough time. She is pregnant and none to happy about it. She wants to end her marriage with Jeff and marry Nick. Not only does Fallon want to end her marriage, she wants to end the pregnancy. Jeff learns of Fallon's appointment for an abortion and he demands that she have the child. She can have the divorce, after she gives birth to his child.
Alexis manages to get her favorite suite in Rome where she can entertain the elusive Rashid Ahmed. Rashid is no fool, Alexis wants something. She wants access to those tankers with the Denver-Carrington oil, but the details can be worked out after a night of love making. The next day, Alexis calls Blake and tells him he must rush to Rome for a meeting with Ahmed - but he should not tell anyone, including Krystle. Blake agrees. After getting off the phone with Blake, Alexis tells Ahmed that she will come up with a good reason why Ahmed will not be there when Blake arrives.
