Blake and Jason spar over where the party for the announcement of the pipeline will be held. Blake wins out and it will be held in Denver. Thus, the Colby clan will be going off to the Rockies. Jason's wife, Sable, finds it odd that Jason would allow such a party to be in Denver. In fact, Sable notices there a quite a few changes in Jason and suspects he is hiding something. Jason plays it off. Later, Sable calls Alexis to make sure the two would not be wearing the same dress at the party.
Sable and Jason's two other children are expected at the party. Monica, the responsible sibling of the family who is also the attorney of Colby Enterprises, immediately accepts. On the contrary, Bliss, the youngest child in the family who is some sort of activist, refuses to attend the part announcing the pipeline because she is opposed to its construction.
Bliss may not be the only one not attending the party. Miles, after his twin sister Monica told him how important Jason said it was for him to make it to Denver, is too busy chasing after Randall/Fallon. Trying to find herself, Randall/Fallon is prepared to take a bus to Phoenix, but Miles catches her and convinces her to allow him to driver her to Phoenix. They can discover who she is together. Jeff also wants to go to Phoenix after hearing of a possible sighting of Fallon. He and Blake fly out there but are unsuccessful. Further, Jeff does not appreciate Blake trying to memorialize Fallon since he does not believe she is dead.
Alexis and Dex will not be able to make it to the party. The two are plotting their rescue attempt of King Galen. Amanda quickly figures out why Alexis and Dex and mysteriously leaving together. Dex swears Amanda to secrecy regarding the mission, and Amanda agrees.
At Delta Rho, Joel carries Krystle to an attic in the stables. Joel commands Rita to switch clothes and prepare herself to be Krystle. Rita is not going to be able to pull this off without having Sammy Jo as a crutch. Thus, Sammy Jo will now become Rita's right hand woman. The two are inseparable as they return to the mansion. Mrs. Gunnerson asks some complicated question regarding something French and Rita is clueless. Thankfully, Sammy Jo rescues her.
Now, Rita needs to convince Blake to allow Sammy Jo to move into the mansion. Steven is not thrilled at the prospect, but Blake gives in to his "wife". In the mansion, Rita comes to a realization, she might have to have sex with her "husband". Sammy Jo assures Rita that she can handle the situation. Just let Blake lead. That prospect does not thrill Rita.
In the attic, Joel reminds Krystle that she can not make commands to him and must learn to be polite when making requests. Krystle pleads to be let go, but that is not going to work. Joel has his eyes set on the Carrington fortune, and it appears on Krystle.
