Episode Summary

EDIT
Dirty Tricks
AIRED:
John Remick is alive. At least Lance and Kathryn know that much. Back in the Tuscany Valley, Kathryn thinks she can convince Rosemont that Lance believes Remick is dead. Rosemont is correct in thinking his decoy has fallen for the Tuscany Valley stud and makes a telephone call to have her eliminated. Although Kathryn has confided her knowledge of The Thirteen to Lance, he has not told her about the note he found hidden in his passport. Now that Angela has bought the little town of Hobart, California and put up a fence around it, Melissa is going to have trouble looking for the Agretti heirloom. The grape queen claims she is keeping the property safe until Frank comes out of his coma. Lucky for Melissa, it turns out that Hobart is just across the state line from Channing, Nevada, Richard's town. She wants to tunnel through to Hobart starting in Channing to a mine where her heritage supposedly waits for her. Playing on her former involvement years ago with Richard, Melissa meets him at The Max and tries to "dirty dance" Richard into making a deal. She's quite a spectacle on the dance floor, sliding on Richard's leg. Her womanly wiles are not enough to win Richard's cooperation, so Melissa shows him Frank's treasure map. Richard pledges to help her if she finds out what Lance has learned about John Remick. Lance shows the note he found in his passport to Maggie. "Keep after Channing. I'll be in touch," it reads. Maggie doesn't believe John Remick wrote it, as Lance claims. Anybody could have written the note, Maggie counters. Emma returns from visiting her sister Julia in the convent and she gives her brother Richard a very icy shoulder. She's holding a grudge about Curtis Estabrook's murder. She still believes Richard is responsible and intends to get even. Sympathetic when Maggie tells her about her habitual drinking, Emma also learns of Lance's accusations against Richard. She files this away. The Falcon Crest winery is threatened with a strike when Melissa deliberately plants some misinformation among the workers. Angela has to break up a fight between opposing groups, but eventually settles the dispute with the union leader. Maggie balks at Richard's idea of sending her away to a private clinic to get her to stop drinking. She goes to see Dr. Everdene, a specialist who treats alcoholics. Together, they work out a plan for Maggie to kick the habit at home. Lance receives an urgent phone call from Kathryn, who believes she is in danger from The Thirteen. In her apartment, they find a bomb rigged to her telephone. They scheme to take her death. The bomb explodes and Kathryn leaves safely for Mexico. Garth has been investigating The Thirteen for Richard and reports that the group plans to attack the banks and stock market in New York and cripple the economic structure of the United States. That's why they've been helping Richard buy the newspaper and the movie studio. Richard wants no part of this political upheaval, but he really doesn't have a choice. He made a pact with The Thirteen and the time has come to honor his commitment.moreless
