Episode Summary

EDIT
The Key to Angela
AIRED:
Richard sends the children to Emma while Maggie dries out. He's mulling over what to do about Melissa's plan to get into Hobart now that she's decided not to spy on Lance for him. He takes turns with Emma watching over Maggie, who painfully weans herself of alcohol- until she gets a letter from Vickie, delivered by Emma. Maggie is shocked to find that her daughter is in jail in Switzerland and that her husband is responsible. She goes to call Geneva but finds that the telephones have been removed. Furious and frustrated and feeling totally deceived by her husband, Maggie reaches for a hidden bottle of brandy and pours herself a drink. Richard comes home and finds Maggie seated with a glass of brandy. She tells him she knows where Vickie is and what he has done to put her there. He begs Maggie not to take the drink. The smell of it alone makes her sick, Maggie tells him. She pours the brandy into a nearby planter and says, "A toast to my daughter in Switzerland." Richard can't find a thing to say. Now that she knows her husband is responsible for putting Vickie in jail, Maggie is all ears when Emma suggests coming to Falcon Crest. Emma has convinced her mother that perhaps they can persuade Maggie to divorce Richard if she is isolated from him. Desperate to keep Maggie at his side, Richard asks Garth to push for Vickie and Eric's release. Lance approaches Senator John Ryder for help in proving Richard's guilt in the disappearance of Ryder's brother, John Remick. Lance reminds him of his obligation to John for saving his neck years before when a drug charge could have ruined his political career. Once Ryder verifies Lance's allegations with the FBI, he warns Lance to let the authorities take control of the investigation before anyone else gets hurt. It's inheritance time again and Len Potts comes a-courting with the third codicil to Chase's will. Chase requested that Melissa be present. Everyone shows up to discover that Chase has left Melissa a key-to destroy their common enemy, Angela. Rosemont insists that Richard print an article that will trigger the collapse of foreign banks in California. Richard refuses his arrogant demand and Rosemont blocks Vickie and Eric's release from jail. Richard changes his mind and boards a plane to Geneva to bargain for getting the Stavroses out of prison. After much debate, Melissa finally signs the forms to have her comatose but only living relative operated on. The operation is a success. Soon Frank Agretti will be back on his feet. With this taken care of, Melissa can get back to finding her treasure. She goes to a stagecoach museum to do some research. Angela has asked Lance to keep a close eye on his former wife and that key she's got. Carly overhears Dan's alleged friend Red insinuate that the nitroglycerin shipment is part of a setup. She steals a car to find her brother before he is blown to bits. Richard meets with opposition in Geneva. He can't get Vickie or Eric released from jail and is forced to print Rosemont's alarming article in The New Globe. Richard's next plan is to lure The Thirteen into a trap. He makes a phone call that will change his life, to Senator Ryder and the FBI. Richard's ready to spill his guts.moreless
