Episode Summary

EDIT
An obviously ill Jeff continues to function in a confused state. Sammy Jo announces she's headed for New York to make it big as a model and no longer wants to keep her son, Danny. Blake offers the girl $100,000 to be a mother to the child, but she declines. Alexis betters the offer and is also turned down. Krystle and Blake are overjoyed to learn Sammy Jo wants them to be Danny's adoptive parents. Alexis continues her affair with Mark. Steven, alive in a Singapore hospital with his face bandaged, regains consciousness. The doctor explains that severe burns incurred in the oil rig explosion necessitated plastic surgery.moreless

    This was a really good episode. There were lots of good scenes in this episode, e.g., the face-off between Alexis and Sammy Jo; Sammy Jo trying to sell her baby; Blake and Krystle's showdown with Sammy Jo; Kirby's speech to Joseph about being the downstairs girl; Alexis and Mark almost getting caught in bed by Fallon. The only weak plot was Jeff's descent into crazniness. Jeff actually had very few lines in this episode, he mostly walked around with a crazed look in his eyes. This episode was a fine example of what made Dynasty so great in its heyday.moreless

    "Dynasty" was always campy and absurd... and that's what fans liked about it. This episode is a fine example of how the show really is and it's a good example. The storylines keep on evolving: Jeff's "poisoning" has a few brief scenes, Steven's death: Blake finally sees a "Steven" in Danny, while it is revealed that Steven is in a hospital somewhere, having gone through extensive plastic surgery. Heather Locklear, as Sammy Jo, causes problems once again, as she tries to sell her baby on order to go to New York and try to be a model and the terrific Alexis Carrington exhibits her bitchiness once again (and OH how we LOVE IT!). This is a good episode overall, and it's great that the next episodes stay that way!moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Sammy Jo: Why do you want Danny?
      Alexis: Because he's Steven's child. A part of him.
      Sammy Jo: Oh, bull. Boy is that bull. You just want him to keep him away from Krystle.
      Alexis: Now you listen to me, you little tramp.
      Sammy Jo: I really wish I had time to jerk you around, Alexis. I'd love to let you throw money at me, trying to outbid Mr. Carrington for Danny.
      Alexis: I said I would better his offer. Didn't you hear me?
      Sammy Jo: Yes, I did. So start bettering. What am I offered?
      Alexis: You can name your price, my dear. Whatever you want.
      Sammy Jo: From you? Nothing. You haven't got enough to even get my attention, Alexis. Because what I really want is to see you eating your rotten heart out over my baby. Well, lady, start eating. Because Danny stays right where he is. What's the matter? Didn't one tramp hear what the other tramp just said?

    • Blake: Sammy Jo.
      Alexis: Oh, God, how I loathe that name. That girl.
      Blake: Well, she's going to New York to become a model and she's leaving the baby to be brought up by Krystle and me.
      Alexis: She's leaving the baby to be brought up by Krystle? How dare you turn over my own flesh and blood to... to an ex-stenographer.
      Blake: Krystle is my wife and don't you ever forget it.
      Alexis: So where do I come in? Am I suppose to beg your wife's permission every time I want to see my own son's child?
      Blake: Of course not. You can see him any time you want to. I'd never deny you that right.
      Alexis: Oh, that's big of you, Blake. But the fact remains, that child will no longer be Steven's. It will belong to Krystle.
      Blake: Well, you cost her the life of her own child, damn it! Now, she can give this baby all that love that she has so much of.
      Alexis: What about me? I've got a lot of love too to give that child.
      Blake: Your brand of love, Alexis, he can manage very well without it. Believe me, I should know.

    • Kirby: Understand that, as a child in this house, I thought I was an equal with Steven and Fallon. And when I found out that that wasn't so... that I was some kind of second-class citizen...
      Joseph: Second-class? Why? Because you're my daughter? I take pride in my work, Kirby. I have the respect and trust of my employer.
      Kirby: That isn't enough for me.
      Joseph: What? What more do you want?
      Kirby: The upstairs world. I tasted it in Paris. Jean-Paul taught me about good foods and fine wines and beautiful clothes. And he taught me something else. That I have something some men want. And next time I'm going to make sure that I get what I want in return. Yes. Respectability. Not to be the downstairs girl that you take to bed, but the upstairs girl you marry. Oh, and you know what they say, "Knowing what you want is the first step in achieving it."

    • Blake: All right. Then, Krystle and I will take care of your child. But we will not buy him from you. And I guarantee, we will not let anyone else buy him from you either. So, what's your decision?
      Sammy Jo: Okay. I'll leave the baby with you. Until I make it big and come back for him. And I'll get by without your money. I don't need it.
      Blake: I think you will. You are my son's widow. I'm going to arrange a monthly support for you.
      Sammmy Jo: I guess it wouldn't look so great in every newspaper in the country if somebody named Carrington had to go on welfare, would it?

    • Mark: Just happened to be in the neighborhood today?
      Alexis: Color me Greek. I came bearing gifts. A gift, actually. For you.
      Mark: My own private Helen of Troy. The face that launched a thousand passions.
      Alexis: Give or take a few.
