Recap: In the Delta Rho attic, Krystle is tossing and turning on her makeshift mattress bed until she wakes with a start. She then gets up, struggles to open the locked door, then stupidly yells, "Somebody helppppppp me!!" A few seconds later, an irked looking George Hamilton enters the room and snarkishly says it's 3:00am and no one can hear her. He urges her to go back to sleep...and to also be a little grateful that he's done everything possible to make things comfortable for her. When Krystle reminds him that she's being held against her will, he impatiently yells at her to shut her pie hole and chillax.
Over at Carrington manor, Blake notices that Rita/Krystle is just picking at her breakfast. He tells her he's been so worried about her health that he made an appointment for her with Dr. Tyler. Rita/Krystle assures Blake that she feels soooo much better after seeing "Dr. Travers", but Blake insists on getting a second opinion and says he'll be accompanying her to the appointment.
Alexis is interviewing nurses to care for King Galen once he starts recuperating in her penthouse...and when Dex gets wind of what's going on, he makes it clear that he's less than thrilled by this latest development. Alexis points out that their hospitality will one day be worth billions of dollars, but Dex counters that it's not "their" hospitality since she didn't exactly ask his permission, and that he frankly couldn't give a rat's ass about Galen's billions. Alexis stares at him incredulously and says they're about to be handed a fortune once..
Dex seems most skeptical about item #2, warns her that Galen might be using her, and points out that they already have all the money they could ever want. Alexis retorts that this is a once in a lifetime opportunity...then reminds him how hard she's had to work to get respect for everything she's achieved, being a woman and all. The conversation is abruptly interrupted when a couple of work men enter the penthouse with a flat piece of wood to begin construction on Galen's wheelchair ramp.
Dex drops by the hospital to pay a visit to King Galen, who gushingly thanks him for saving his life and tells him that if they were in Moldavia, he would receive the highest honor in the category of Best Rescue of a King. When he refers to Dex as "a special man", Dex counters that Alexis is "a special wife" who he'll protect at all costs, then says he's not wild about her loyalty to an ousted king, who he's concerned is using her and her cash to regain power.
Rita/Krystle insists to Dr. Tyler that she feels A-OK, but Dr. Tyler says he'll run a battery of tests just to be sure...and that if anything is wrong with her, he'll uncover it.
Prince Michael tells his father he doesn't approve of the ColbyCo banking deal, 'cause anything that substantial is supposed to be decided in consultation with the Cabinet and Parliament...otherwise the snubby oversight might lead to another revolt. King Galen admits that he's planning to use Alexis' cash to buy arms and loyalty in his quest to regain the Moldavian throne...after which he'll promptly reneg on the tax haven promise. He warns Prince Michael to not breathe a word of this underhandedness to Amanda or Alexis - and when Prince Michael's like, "But Amanda is my wife!", King Galen says that right now his only priority should be his country.
Over lunch, Claudia whines to Adam that Walter Lankershim bequeathed her his oil well, which Blake is now claiming belongs to Denver Carrington. When she says she plans on filing charges against Blake, Adam urges her to stifle that urge and focus her energy more on getting "the whole pie". Claudia complains that she's tired of begging the Carringtons for everything and would much prefer to live off of the profits the Lankershim oil well yields - but Adam tells her the last thing they should be doing right now is antagonizing the old goat, and promises that he'll one day get her damn oil well back. A few seconds later, Adam gets a phone call from Blake, summoning him to his office.
Blake asks Adam for an update regarding the restraining order against the pipeline, so Adam informs him that Senator Fallmont's son, Bart, is behind the effort. Blake digests that nugget, remarks on how the Senator has been against the pipeline from the get-go, then adds, "You have your work cut out for you." Adam says he's determined to win the case, and Blake nods approvingly...then changes the subject and says that he had unpleasant words with Claudia, who accused him of stealing her inheritance. Adam hastily assures him it was a misunderstanding, and that Claudia now understands that the well belongs to Denver Carrington. Blake's like, "Wuh? Really?" and says he's glad the matter has been straightened out.
Alexis arrives at Carrington manor with a wrapped gift for Little Blake, who's driving his toy car down the mansion's corridor. He accidentally crashes into Rita/Krystle, who snappishly calls him "a little creep", yanks him out of the car, and threatens to take the toy car away from him. Alexis gasps in shock and barks, "Take your hands off that child!", then hands Little Blake the gift and sends him to the kitchen for a snack. She then warns Rita/Krystle to never swear at or manhandle her grandson ever again...and as Rita/Krystle storms off, Alexis snarls that she can't wait for the day she exits Carrington manor forever.
Alexis rushes over to Denver Carrington to express concern to Blake for their grandson's safety, specifically 'cause she just caught Krystle abusing the child. Blake rolls his eyes and says they both know that Krystle would never harm anyone - but Alexis insists that Little Blake was genuinely frightened during the altercation. She chides Blake for not listening to her, says that one day he'll regret not heeding her warning, then flounces out of his office.
Prince Michael brings Amanda to the most luxurious suite La Mirage has to offer and suggests they spend the evening dining in private so they can hit the silk sheets soon after. Amanda perks up at the sexy proposition...and in the next scene, the two are hot tubbing and snacking on caviar. Prince Michael tells Amanda that this is how it's going to be from now on, and that he regrets coming so close to losing her...and in the next scene, the two are laying in bed, basking in post-coitus afterglow as they reminisce about meeting each other for the first time. Prince Michael says he might be inclined to keep this suite reserved for them on a permanent basis, and that perhaps it will be where a royal heir is conceived. Amanda's all, "Ack!" and says she'd much prefer they spend time together as childless lovers, and suggests they strengthen their bond even further by working together at the La Mirage. Prince Michael gets irked, says that the La Mirage isn't their future, and that producing an heir for Moldavia should be the #1 thing on her to do list. Amanda chafes at being given orders about such a major life decision...and when she asks him exactly how he plans on getting Moldavia back under his and King Galen's control, he mumbles, "Trust me."
Krystle is morosely staring into space, thinking about Kristina and whispering, "I love you soooooo much." A smiling George Hamilton enters the attic and says he has no choice about having to hold her captive...but that how much she enjoys her relatively comfortable captivity is up to her. Krystle snaps back that she wants to be home with her family and won't pretend to be comfortable for his sake. George Hamilton frowns and says that that's a shame 'cause he was about to let her out of the attic so she could take a nice long bath. He breathily describes how luxurious it would be to feel "the nice, soft caress of the hot water" and asks her if she'd like that...and despite the creepy way he's talking and staring at her, she perks up and is all, "That sounds awesome!" LOL.
George Hamilton leads Krystle into the bathroom in the Delta Rho residence, warns her to not even think about escaping, and informs her that he'll remain in the bathroom to ensure that she can't try anything. Krystle looks appalled at the idea of undressing in front of him - but he assures her he'll do his best to not sneak a peek even though he's seen lots of women getting undressed, then points out that it'd be a shame to waste the lovely bubble bath he ran for her. Krystle decides 'ah fuck it' and quickly strips and climbs into the tub...and George Hamilton stares over at her creepily and moans, "My God...you are a vision." He then starts nattering about the movies and pompously declares, "I could make you a star" ... and Krystle's all, "The movies? What in the fucking hell are you talking about, weirdo?", and her brazen look of disgust prompts a flustered George Hamilton to hastily exit the room.
At Carrington manor, Steven gets enraged when Claudia informs him that Sammy Jo took Danny to Delta Rho with her. He announces that he's storming over to the ranch right now to fetch his son.
George Hamilton admonishes Sammy Jo for bringing her brat to the very ranch where Krystle is being held captive...and Sammy Jo notices the pile of Krystle's clothes, looks alarmed, and asks if her aunt is all right. George Hamilton assures her she's fine, but to not go anywhere near the bathroom 'cause Krystle, who's currently soaking in a hot tub, still has no idea that she has been party to this doppelganger/kidnapper scheme.
Steven bursts into Sammy Jo's office and admonishes her for taking their son away from Carrington manor without permission. Sammy Jo weakly says she thought he might like to see the horses - but if he's that angry about it, he should just take Danny and leave.
George Hamilton is escorting Krystle back to the attic when they see Steven and Danny exit the residence. Krystle opens her mouth to scream - but George Hamilton clamps his hand over it and drags her over to the stables. He keeps her hidden behind a wall, and threateningly orders her to keep her trap shut 'cause he really doesn't want to have to hurt her.
After the commercial break, Steven and Danny enter the stable and unwittingly walk past Krystle and George Hamilton to have a look at some of the horses. After a few nerve-wracking (not really) seconds, Steven tells his son they should be getting home now. Once the two are out of hearing range, George Hamilton tells Krystle it's too late to yell for help, then hovers over her creepily. When he leans in to kiss her, she moves her head away...and he boasts, "Soon you're going to want me. I'm a very patient man." Ew.
Dex drops by Denver Carrington to bitchily remind Blake that his company submitted a bid to construct the oil pipeline and that he hasn't heard back. Blake explains that there's a temporary restraining order on that project, and Dex is like, "That sounds like your problem" and says it feels as though he's being deliberately kept out of the deal...and Blake's like, "Go pee up a rope, Dex. I have other things on mind these days."
Dex enters Alexis' office and overhears Alexis on the phone, transferring $2 million to King Galen's account so he can buy arms for the Moldavian underground. Dex shakes his head in dismay and asks her if she's not worried that Galen will nationalize his country's banking industry once he's back on the throne, but Alexis insists that she trusts the king to keep his word. Dex points out that she doesn't actually know the man that well, and asks her to ponder why there was a revolution in the first place. Alexis retorts by asking him if he plans on moving out if she continues to help and trust Galen, and Dex says that this time he's going to stick around to protect her from her naïveté and horrendous decision-making.
Dr. Tyler informs Rita/Krystle that she's perfectly healthy, and Blake's all, "Woo hoo!" while Rita/Krystle breathes a huge sigh of relief.
Later, Rita/Krystle spikes Blake's brandy just before he emerges from the bathroom in his robe. He gets all canoodly and moans, "I loooove you, I've missed you" and tries to steer her over to the bed - but Rita/Krystle's all, "Ack!" at the prospect of getting boned by goat daddy and pulls away in revulsion while barking at him to leave her alone. As a confused Blake is all, "What the..?", she flees the bedroom, runs down the hall, and locks herself inside a different room...and Blake chases after her, pounds on the door, and demands that she let him in (excuse the pun).
