Episode Summary

EDIT
Tracy and Krystle exchange angry words. As Alexis monitors all of the television news programs, Mark suggests she's waiting to see some late-breaking news-news she already knows. Blake learns Kirby has unearthed the truth about her father and is anxious to demonstrate he only lied to fulfill Joseph's wishes. As little Blake's birthday party gets underway, Krystle tells a stunned Alexis that she is expecting a baby. A surprised Alexis tries to insult Krystle by stating that Krystle's not the first woman to give birth, as Alexis has given birth four times. Krystle catches the slip and asks doesn't she mean three? (Adam, Fallon, Steven) to which Alexis explains she had a miscarriage after Steven was born. Fallon and Jeff announce their plans to remarry. The Carringtons are stunned to hear that Rashid Ahmed has created an international incident by announcing that Blake is planning a military attack on another world power involved in the China Seas oil deal.moreless

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • The episode foreshadows the arrival of Amanda in the next season. At Little Blake's birthday party, Alexis tells Krystle she's given birth four times, to which Krystle inquires about the fourth birth. Alexis then tries to cover by saying she meant she had a miscarriage after Steven (her third child), which Blake later denies. However, Alexis specifically said she gave birth four times and not that she was pregnant four times.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Alexis: (after taking a glass of champagne) Aren't you joining me?
        Krystle: No, I've given it up for the next nine months or so.
        Alexis: Nine months? Are you pregnant?
        Krystle: Yes.
        Alexis (laughs) Congratulations.
        Krystle: Thank you.
        Alexis: Not that it's all that special. I mean, even worms can procreate.

      • Hess: Hey, look, Mrs. Colby, I... I'm sorry about the threat. I didn't mean it, but... Look, you've got a lot of influence downtown. If I lose my license, if I spend 3 months in the slammer, I'm out of business.
        Alexis: Slammer? What a quaint word. If there's any true justice in the world, it should be your tailor who should be sent to the slammer for those ridiculous jackets he supplies you with.

      • Blake: The only thing that makes me more nervous than Alexis on a rampage is Alexis on a goodwill mission.
