Episode Summary

EDIT
As Tears Go By
AIRED:
Maggie creeps out of bed early to meet with Senator Ryder in hopes of getting Richard granted immunity for the remainder of the hearing. Alone in bed, Richard is drugged by a gloved hand. He regains consciousness to find the dead body of Madame Malec next to him. Richard shudders. It could have been Maggie. Maggie meets with Senator Ryder and wins immunity for her husband. Meanwhile, Richard has given up trying to convince anyone in Washington that The Thirteen exists and is responsible for Madame Malec's murder. Maggie persuades vitriolic Vickie to keep her trap shut about Richard at the hearing. Later Vickie blows off her husband outside the hearing room. She's helping her mother now, the brat tells Eric. With Frank out of the hospital, Melissa attempts to convince Angela to let her into Hobart to look for her heirloom. Angela is opposed to the idea. Frank tells his niece to stay put. Next, Melissa enlists Lance in her scheme to get into the fenced-in ghost town from Richard's property in Channing, Nevada. Underground, they are startled when a tunnel wall collapses on them and they tumble into an underground vault-full of old safe-deposit boxes from Wells Fargo. Richard begins to suspect that Senator Horton, who is conducting the hearings, is a mole for The Thirteen and invokes the Fifth Amendment in his testimony. Eric testifies against Richard, but Emma changes her mind about vilifying her brother in front of the Senate when he finally makes her believe that he did not kill Curtis Estabrook. At the hearing, Maggie meets John Remick again. He has had contact with The Thirteen. Maggie begs him to testify. He does, providing written proof which supports Richard's contention that The Thirteen is a very dangerous and extant organization. During a recess, Maggie turns to thank Remick, but he's gone. In a Fifth Avenue dress shop, Garth fits Angela with a bug to spy on The Thirteen in New York. She meets with them and records their discussion of economic upheaval. Back in Washington, she discovers the tape is blank. Dan's father, Tucker, comes back to tell Carly that Dan is not her brother. When Tucker married Carly's mother, she was already carrying another man's baby. Carly is crestfallen. She cooks Dan dinner, unable to tell him the truth. In the vault, Melissa finds a box for her key. She unlocks an ancient deed to Falcon Crest. The name on the deed is Agretti, not Gioberti, she tells Lance. Melissa screams in ecstasy and an avalanche of rocks seals them in.moreless
