Episode Summary

EDIT
Channing Vs. Channing
AIRED:
Maggie recovers from her drunken fall and decides to throw away all of the alcohol in the house so she won't be tempted to drink again. Lance continues to investigate Curtis's allegations about Richard's underworld activity. Richard finds him rifling through Emma's office at the New Globe and warns him to stay away from Maggie. Lance tries in vain to enlist Maggie's support, but she denies Lance's accusations and tells him to stop before anyone else gets hurt. Frank and Melissa ride out to Hobart, California using Frank's antiquated map. Melissa accuses him of selfish motives, but when Frank raises his gun and shoots a rattler lying close to her, Melissa is embarrassed into silence. Frank tells her that he is dying and has no desire of cheating her out of her legacy. When they get to Hobart, all they find are abandoned buildings from an old mining community. On further inspection of a shack, Melissa falls through the crumbling flooring into a hole below. Frank attempts to rescue Melissa and as he succeeds in pulling her up, he is hit by a falling beam from above and is left unconscious. Angela comes to Frank's bedside to find her friend in a coma. As she leaves her room, she spots Melissa and accuses her of causing her uncle's accident. Maggie confides her "accident" to her friend Allison. Allison tells Maggie that she has been subpoenaed to testify about her fitness as a parent. Maggie is incredulous as Garth enters the room with a child welfare worker. The welfare worker assigned to Michael's case tells Angela that she is going to recommend that she see her grandson more than once a month. Meanwhile, Richard and Maggie discuss the upcoming hearing. Richard has arranged for Judge Ambrose to be discredited by publishing an article in the Globe revealing his inability to account for his campaign funds. Maggie thinks that won't stop Angela. At Falcon Crest, Ambrose laments his fate at the hands of Richard, as Angela reminds him of his indebtedness to her. After testimony at the hearing, the judge grants Angela visitation rights to Michael, once a week. Maggie and Richard argue over the decision. Angela returns to Falcon Crest and gloats over her success.moreless
