Dynasty (2017) s03e04 Episode Script

Something Desperate

1 - Previously on Dynasty - (SCREAMS) It worked.
The judge has agreed to grant bail on the condition of house arrest.
We need to make Liam remember that he loves me, not Trashley.
- Kirby, listen - Don't say it.
I'm really sorry.
I spoke to the last cop at Jeff's crime scene.
- No one saw a cuff link.
- Seems it was missing before the police even showed up.
JEFF: Which means you took it.
You're a selfish, spoiled little princess.
I hate you! (SHOUTING, GRUNTING) As your wife, I should have a say in the family business.
Well, then, congrats on your promotion.
I will find a way to see Liam.
Laura said that wedding bells weren't too far off for Liam and Ashley.
(BLAKE HUMMING "EVERYBODY WANTS TO RULE THE WORLD") (HUMMING CONTINUES) Good morning, Father.
Sure is.
I am on top of the world.
- Sun is shining, - (CHUCKLES) I slept with both eyes closed mmm and this looks a hell of a lot better than breakfast in jail.
He's even been humming all morning.
The same song.
Well, it's because it's the truth.
Everybody does want to rule the world.
And some of us actually do.
- (CHUCKLES) - I know.
I still have a trial ahead of me.
Mmm.
Well, you don't need to worry about the winery.
I know last week's incident was unfortunate, but nobody is going to remember Halloween after tonight's tasting.
The invitations have already gone out, including to the personal sommelier to the Swedish royal family.
Well, that makes it the perfect opportunity to introduce Blue Belt Vineyard's new copresident.
It has a nice ring to it.
Tell Adam what you've been thinking.
It's good.
JENNINGS: I just thought we could open the doors a bit, you know? There's a whole generation out there who couldn't care less about Bordeaux or Napa.
I didn't know we were aiming for the Two-Buck Chuck demographic.
We're aiming for the people who know that fine wine doesn't have to mean stuffy and traditional.
We need them here tonight.
Now, like I said, it's a little late to be sending out invitations, isn't it? Don't worry.
I'll take care of everything.
Mm.
Already hitting the ground running.
(HUMMING) (HUMMING CONTINUES IN DISTANCE) (LAUGHS SOFTLY) Somebody's chipper this morning.
Oh, he's not the only one.
Up before 8:30 and working out? I don't even know who you are anymore.
I'm a professional now.
A hotelier.
A pillar of my community.
- Let's not get ahead of ourselves.
- Well, speaking of heads, where are you going with that fresh blowout? A, my hair always looks this good.
And B, I am going to talk to Liam.
Yeah, but doesn't His mother have a restraining order against me? Yes.
- And isn't - He staying at her house? Also, yes.
But apparently, he and Ashley are talking about marriage.
And I can't let that happen.
Okay? Not without a fight.
But you have been fighting.
I mean, don't you remember the slideshow? And the sea bass? What, you're gonna ambush him with other fish? I am going to give him this.
The original manuscript to Liam's book.
With his notes.
There may be nothing I can say to bring back his memory, but maybe his own words will.
I mean, it's basically the story of our relationship.
I know it's a long shot, but it's the only shot I have left.
Fallon, this isn't an '80s movie.
You can't just stand outside his house with a boom box.
Or, you know, a manuscript.
Maybe I should bring a boom box, too.
You know, music is the purest form of expression.
And a restraining order is the purest form of "stay the hell away".
Well, you know what? I have a plan to get around that.
ADAM: Mrs.
Gunnerson.
I didn't know you were an artist.
What-what is this masterpiece? Mrs.
Carrington asked me to make it.
She's added a few invitations at the last minute, and she wants them to be special.
Of course.
And who is this one for? Thank you.
Caroline Calloway.
- She's, uh, one of those - Influencers? - Mm.
- Yeah, they all are.
And they're all picky eaters.
Look, I know you have your plate full, literally.
Uh, why don't I take care of this invitation.
I'll grab a couple of our best bottles and have them sent out.
That's all right.
Mrs.
Carrington asked me to see to it personally.
No, I insist.
We're all on the same team here, aren't we? MONICA: I'm glad you're back.
Cheers, to the only family that matters.
(LAUGHS SOFTLY) What the hell is this? - An apology.
- What are you doing here? I thought I told you to stay away.
Nobody needs to hear more of your lies.
I know.
Which is why I came to tell you the truth.
The police didn't find that cuff link because it wasn't there.
I took it.
Of course you did.
But I did it for your own good, Jeff.
If Blake would've found out what you were doing, he would have come for you himself.
Then why pretend to help me? Why let me leave? You would have escalated the war until you did get yourself killed.
Getting you out of Atlanta was the only way to keep you safe.
And what the hell makes you think I needed you to keep me safe? You have been gone for the last ten years.
Did you really think you could just swoop into our lives and decide what's best for us? I know there were so many times I wasn't there for you, both of you.
That's why I was willing to do anything to protect you now, why I'm willing to do anything to make things right.
You really want to make things right? Then leave my house.
Now.
Rosé all day.
Groundbreaking.
(FOOTSTEPS APPROACHING) (DOOR OPENS) (PHONE VIBRATING) Hey, Laura.
Yeah, I guess you got my message.
(WHISPERING): I know it's crazy, but I heard it with my own ears.
You know how Fallon can be.
(GAS HISSING) (SNIFFING) BLAKE (IN DISTANCE): Bo? Here, boy! (GAS CONTINUES HISSING) (BO BARKING) Drywall must be complete by end of day.
This hotel opens in one week.
- Thank you.
- Looking good.
As are you.
The Italians cut a better suit than DeKalb County Jail.
I can't tell you how sorry I am.
What Blake did.
Unforgivable.
Thanks.
I appreciate that.
And I'm sorry for the way things turned out with Kirby.
It was just bad timing.
Oh, no need for apologies, really.
Um, I'm sure you're both gonna be fine.
You're right.
No need to dwell on the past.
Mm.
And what about the future for Michael Culhane? Well, I'm back to running the Atlantix, and that's actually why I'm here.
We got a new midfielder in from Cuba.
Could take the Atlantix to the next level.
But he's only been here a few weeks, and his place got broken into the other night.
He's kind of shaken up.
I'm sure he is.
Anyway, I figure a few days' quiet could do him a lot of good.
I know you guys are a little ways out from opening up, but I thought you might have a room finished.
You do realize we're not operational yet.
Which is exactly why no one will be looking for him here.
And I trust you guys.
The team will pay well above market rate, and I see no reason why this place could not be the official hotel for the visiting teams.
I-I'll speak to Sam.
I can't think of a better partnership for the hotel.
(BOTH LAUGH) GUNNERSON: Mrs.
Carrington.
Just adjusting the menu to accommodate our new guests.
Thank you.
Though I don't have RSVPs from any of them.
Did the invitations go out all right? - Yes.
I think so.
- You think? Well, I made them just the way we talked about, and then Mr.
Carrington took one.
Blake? No.
Mr.
Adam.
He was going to pull a few bottles to send along with them.
Did he not tell you? He must have forgotten.
- I'm sorry, ma'am.
- It's not your fault.
You're not gonna tell him, are you? That I told you.
Don't worry.
If I've learned anything from Fallon, it's not to pick a fight with Adam.
I just need to keep him busy until this tasting is over.
JEFF: So, you said that you'd do anything to make things right? - Of course.
- JEFF: Well, I got something.
The annual Blue Belt wine tasting is tonight at Carrington Manor.
Apparently, Adam's running the vineyard now.
Prodigal son entrusted with the last remaining jewel of the Carrington empire.
It's almost Shakespearean.
It's also an opportunity.
What are you talking about? I want to put the last nail in the coffin of Blake's legacy.
His reputation.
I want to make sure he can never rebuild.
Well, actually, I want you to.
This is exactly what I meant, Jeff.
You'll never let it go.
Adam and Blake came for my life, so now I'm coming for theirs, in a manner of speaking.
And if you're really Team Colby, you'll help me.
(QUIETLY): I knew she wouldn't do it.
What do you want me to do? Get into the manor and make sure that tasting is Blue Belt's last.
And then what? Set the house on fire? Oaky, don't be melodramatic.
I don't want you burning down the house.
I just want Adam to get a little taste of his own medicine.
(FALLON GRUNTING) Oh.
That's inconvenient.
(EXHALES) Liam, you better be in here and you better be alone.
Open the door.
Liam? Fallon? What are you doing here? If you remembered me, this really wouldn't surprise you.
And you should know that I almost brought a boom box, but more importantly (GRUNTS) I brought this.
It's your book, about us.
Oh, there must be a copy here somewhere.
No, no.
I mean, not the original manuscript, with your original notes, inside jokes, and conversations we had.
I just I really, really need you to read it before you do something crazy, because MAN: Freeze! (GRUNTS) Hurry.
Just take it.
No.
I think Adam may be a little shaken up with this whole winery situation.
What do you mean? He's had some trouble finding his footing.
First he had to leave the soccer team, and now he's feeling pushed out of Blue Belt.
I didn't fire him.
I know that, but you saw how he reacted at breakfast.
He's insecure.
I think he needs a reminder that your relationship is bigger than business.
You are right.
Of course.
The two of you could spend the day together.
Just father and son.
No business allowed.
This reeks of excessive force.
Ma'am, we're private security.
And I haven't touched you.
- You can still expect a civil suit.
- Mm.
(GRUNTING) So maybe you should lawyer up.
LAURA: When I got a tip that there was an intruder on the property, I wondered whether you were crazy enough to come here; a mother's intuition, that never fails.
The only reason I'm not calling the police is because I do not want to ruin Liam's special day.
Special day? That's right.
These last few weeks have really put things into perspective.
And when it's true love, why wait? So Ashley and Liam have decided to skip all the accoutrement and just go straight to the courthouse this afternoon.
Our courthouse? (CHUCKLES) You're even more unbalanced than I thought.
And I'm warning you, if you step foot near that courthouse, you'll lose a lot more than the one ounce of dignity you have left.
She thinks that this is a game, that her son is (GASPS) not a real person with a real fiancée.
- Hey, are you listening to me? - Not really.
Anders was just texting me 'cause I was supposed to be at the hotel half an hour ago, and Culhane Never mind.
I am listening.
You wanted to play a game? There is no game.
This is a war.
I have to get that manuscript to Liam.
(SCOFFS) I'm sorry, did we just travel back in time to this morning? Fallon, you've already tried your Hail Mary.
It's over, honey.
It's not over until that manuscript is in Liam's hands.
You can't go back there.
- You're right.
- Yeah.
They will be looking for me, but they won't be looking for you.
(CHUCKLES): Oh, no.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
I'm already late for work.
What? Sam, you can't be late.
You're the boss.
Plus, Laura doesn't even know you.
You're the perfect Trojan horse.
All you have to do is get onto the property, grab that manuscript and give it to Liam before he heads to the courthouse.
But I've never even seen this place.
Oh, that's fine.
I'll talk you through it.
It'll be really easy.
I'll be your Cyrano de Bergerac, just with a much better nose.
Why do I have to be the horse? Just go get ready, okay? We don't have all day.
Fine.
It smells weird in here, anyway.
(GAS HISSING) (PLAYING GENTLE MELODY) You take requests? I was rehearsing a little Beethoven for the party tonight.
Though I don't think it's that kind of party anymore.
What do you mean? I think Cristal's new vision is a little trendier, judging by the guest list.
I mean, do you know any of these people? Yeah.
The Carters, right there.
Yeah, that's not Jimmy and Rosalynn, that's Beyoncé.
- Oh.
- And she sends her regrets.
(CHUCKLES): Okay.
Hey, let's give her a chance, huh? Cristal, not Beyoncé.
Besides, Tears For Fears is a little more my style anyway.
- Yes.
- I remember when that song came out.
I was younger than you.
My hair was a little longer.
- I think that was called a mullet.
- (LAUGHS) Well, you should've seen my moves back then.
- Yeah? - Few too many of these, - you just might.
- (LAUGHS) You little rat! Hey! (STAMMERS) That was good Scotch.
You called in that tip to Laura Van Kirk, didn't you? And if you think that's the only tip - she's gotten from him - Oh.
I don't know what you're talking about.
And I don't think I want to know.
I just needed five minutes with my fiancé.
Instead, I almost got arrested because you are sleeping with Mrs.
Robinson.
Well, you violated a restraining order.
I'm not sure I'm the crazy one here.
Well, I'm not the one who tried to change Mom's face.
Kids, stop it, both of you! We have enough battles to fight without turning on each other, too.
Well, tell that to Dr.
Frankenstein.
Is that the Whitesnake record you gave me? Yeah.
I was feeling a bit nostalgic for my 20s.
I wanted to share some good, classic music with Adam.
But why? We were doing just fine without him.
Why can't we go back to that? (PLAYING "EVERYBODY WANTS TO RULE THE WORLD") Welcome to your life There's no turning back Even while we sleep We will find you Acting on your best behavior Turn your back on Mother Nature Everybody wants to rule the world It's my own desire It's my own remorse No.
Help me To decide Help me make the most of freedom And of pleasure Nothing ever lasts forever - Everybody wants to rule the world - Not funny.
There's a room where the light won't find you Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down - No.
- When they do I'll be right behind you So glad we've almost made it So sad they had to fade it Everybody wants to rule the world.
What was that? Okay, you guys are like Boyz II Men.
Or is it Men to Boys? You were a little pitchy on the second verse.
What verse? When you were singing.
Just now? Uh, nobody was singing, Fallon.
Are you feeling okay? No.
Not anymore.
MICHAEL: All right, you'll be in 304.
They're still working on the elevator, but the stairs are right there.
And since room service isn't up and running, let's get you a few extra bottles of water - before we head up.
- Michael? Kirby.
Hey.
What are you doing here? Are you here to see me? I'm actually here on business.
What kind of business? I can't really talk about it.
I should really be going.
But I hope everything is good with you.
Just fine.
Let's go.
BLAKE: How's it going with the wine tasting? There was a little mishap with the invitations today, but it's all sorted out now.
I called the guests myself.
Yeah, speaking of the invitations, I didn't recognize most of the names on the guest list.
Let me guess: Adam showed you? I know you're trying to pull in a new audience, but I didn't realize it was at the expense of the old one.
What about my friends? Those people aren't going to keep Blue Belt in business.
After we talked, I looked at the vineyard's books.
Sales have all but evaporated since Mack and Trixie.
And you didn't say anything? I didn't want to distract you.
It would be a bigger distraction if my winery went under, don't you think? It's all we have left.
Which is why we need to cultivate this new customer base.
That's how we're going to rebuild the entire Carrington empire.
(VAN DOOR CLOSES) (SIGHS) Good afternoon.
Yeah.
How can I help? I have a delivery from Petals on Ponce for Mr.
Liam Ridley.
Oh, no problem.
I'll take those.
Uh, uh, is Mr.
Ridley here? Because I have specific instructions to deliver them directly to him.
They're for today's event.
And who's the sender? Oh, it's Miss Ashley Cunningham.
The bride.
Of course.
Go on through.
Someone will meet you at the front door.
Gracias.
(QUIETLY): Okay, I'm through the gate.
FALLON (OVER EARPIECE): Now the real mission begins.
There you are.
I was waiting for you.
I thought we should try the product first before everyone else does tonight.
I've been talking with Cristal.
She says wine sales were basically nonexistent this month.
Why didn't you say anything? Well, you know, it's just a passing phase.
Once the new cycle moves on, everyone will forget about the scandals and remember how much they love Blue Belt wine.
Starting tonight, I hope.
I'll toast to that.
- Want to do the honors? - What'd you pick? What the hell is this? What? - Oh, I think it's Cristal.
- Yeah, I know it's Cristal.
What is her face doing on this wine bottle? Don't ask me.
Didn't she talk to you about it? About taking me off my own label? No.
- We didn't talk about this.
- Wow.
First your friends, now your face.
If I didn't know any better, I'd think she was trying to erase you from Blue Belt.
JENNINGS: He said I made those? Well, that's your face, isn't it? Yes, it's my face.
Same as the day we met.
But I have never seen that label before in my life.
This is obviously Adam trying to embarrass me.
I told you this morning, he doesn't want me involved in the winery.
Then why would he put your face on the label? For the same reason he showed you that guest list.
To make it look like I'm trying to take over the company.
Are you? Adam didn't make that new guest list.
You did.
But only because I 'Cause I'm a liability right now? Blake, you are under a lot of stress Yeah, this is not helping! (SIGHS) Liam's bedroom is around the back.
(OVER EARPIECE): First floor, on the corner.
And the manuscript should be right under his balcony.
Did you find it? Not yet.
Did you find it now? Wait, I see it.
It's way under there, though.
I don't know if I can reach it.
Okay, I climbed that building in heels, Sam.
Suck it up.
(GROANS) There are thorns everywhere.
Got it.
You owe me a facial.
(GROANS) That little troll.
CULHANE: Here we are.
Home, for the next few days at least.
Thank you.
This is it's great.
Well, the team is a family; that's what family does.
You got my number if you need me, and I'll be sure to have my office reach out to you No.
Don't.
Well, it'd just be easier if you can't get in contact with me.
It's safer if no one knows.
I know you're shaken up by what happened, but the police will find whoever broke in.
I already know who it was.
What? Who? Things in Cuba were bad.
It wasn't safe.
I was trying to get out for a long time, and I needed help.
And these guys, that's what they do.
They're very expensive, and I didn't have the money.
- What do they want? - To get paid.
- And did you pay them? - Yes.
But now they want more, and every time I say no, they - They sent you a message.
- No one should know I'm here.
You're telling me.
She said she'd never seen those labels before, - that you must've made them.
- When? I've been with you most of the day.
(STAMMERS) Why would I put Cristal's face on anything? I asked her the same thing.
She said that you want her out of the winery.
I want what's best for the winery, which is why I managed to find some of the old labels.
We'll switch them out before tonight.
No.
This whole thing was a mistake.
I thought it would bring the family closer together.
It's caused nothing but strife.
I'm canceling the tasting.
No, no, you can't do that.
Look, I don't know what's happening with Cristal, but it's not about her tonight; it's about your winery.
Everything's already in motion.
We may as well just make the best of it.
I'll-I'll call Bob Channing and the Carters.
Just give me a chance.
Fine.
All right.
You won't regret it.
(DOOR OPENS) Dominique.
What a surprise.
Don't worry, I'm not here for your little wine party.
I'm sure my invitation was lost in the mail.
Yeah, I'll go check on that.
So what are you doing here, hmm? Haven't seen enough of me lately? Or did you already go through that million? I'm here to ask for your word that you'll leave Jeff alone.
(CHUCKLES): Oh, really? 'Cause I seem to recall you giving me your word that he'd be out of my hair.
All of a sudden, he's back in Atlanta.
I said I would handle it, and I will.
Nothing needs to change, including my payments.
So are we good? Luckily for you, I've got my hands full with these Georgia state prosecutors right now, so, yeah, I'll stand down as long as he does.
You can see yourself out.
FALLON (OVER EARPIECE): Okay, when you get in, you should see a tacky spiral staircase.
You want to go left there and then down that hall.
You're gonna walk by, like, four big oil portraits of Laura, which seems a little on the nose to me, but Uh, can we save the running commentary? Okay, so left at the staircase.
Uh, right.
You said left.
FALLON: No, no, no, no.
Yeah, but it actually it actually is a right.
Are you trying to confuse me? No, no.
Okay, I have a headache.
I mean, it must be from all this stress.
You're stressed? I'm the one trespassing in a stranger's home wearing a polo shirt.
Can I help you? (SIGHS) (DOOR OPENS) (FOOTSTEPS APPROACHING) SAM: Ma'am, like I told the guard, I specific instructions to hand deliver these directly to Mr.
Ridley.
I will sign for them and make sure - he gets them.
- SAM: No, no, no.
But isn't that technically fraud, hmm? If my boss finds out, I could get fired.
I am sure you can understand, as a fellow employee.
Yes, and I'm sure you understand that I can't just let a stranger waltz into the house.
We've already had a security breach today.
- My bad.
- Yeah.
Thanks a lot.
Pardon me? I was just, um I was saying a little prayer for my cat.
Really? Your cat? She's very sick, and the medicine are very expensive.
And that's why I really, really, really have to keep this job.
So if you would just please show me to Mr.
Ridley.
- Please.
- What about Mr.
Ridley? - No, no! - Here you go.
Liam.
(GASPS) Liam? You look great.
LIAM: I'm sorry.
My memory's not what it used to be.
Have-have we met? It's just me, Sam, arguably Fallon's best friend.
- Fallon Carrington? - Just give him the book, Sam! She tried to give you this earlier.
It's your book about her.
If you just read it, you might remember the truth, that you guys are in love.
I'm getting security.
LIAM: I'm-I'm really flattered, but I'm on kind of a tight schedule at the moment.
- I'm getting married today.
- Just let me talk to Liam.
Uh, this is Fallon.
She's on the phone.
- (PHONE BEEPS) - Okay, Fallon, you're on speaker.
And security is probably on their way, - so skip the small talk.
- FALLON: Liam, I know this is crazy, and I know that you're supposed to be getting married today, but that is why I really, really need you to read this book first, because even if you can't remember yet, what we had was magical.
It was epic, even.
And I know I can't just forget it.
Oh, that's beautiful.
How can I just let you walk away Just let you leave without a trace When I stand here Taking every breath with you Ooh, ooh You're the only one who really knew me At all Okay.
She's had a bit of a day.
How can you just walk away from me When all I can do is watch you leave 'Cause we shared the laughter and the pain And even shared the tears You're the only one Who really knew me at all I won't take that personally.
So take a look at me now Well, there's just an empty space And there's nothing left here To remind me Just the memory of your face Take a look at me now Well, there's just an empty space And you coming back to me Is against the odds But it's what I've got to face - (NOTE CONTINUES) - Okay then, um I wish I could just make you turn around Turn around and see me cry There's so much I need to say to you So many reasons why You're the only one who really knew me at all - You have a great voice.
- Thank you.
So take a look at me now (CHUCKLES SOFTLY) There's just an empty space And there's nothing left here - And that's all the time we have.
- (SINGING STOPS ABRUPTLY) Uh, Liam, it was great seeing you.
Fallon, that was special.
Wait, I'm not done.
Caroline.
Adam Carrington, co-president of Blue Belt.
This is Bob.
Bob.
- Uh-huh? - This is Caroline.
I think you two have a lot in common.
- See? We got this.
- Yeah, I hope you're right.
Wouldn't be a wine tasting without the wine, would it? I didn't think you'd be joining us.
Yes.
Sorry I'm late.
Just had to make a few final adjustments.
(GLASSES CLINK) Maybe you'd like to do the honors? BLAKE: Who did this? I commissioned them after our first conversation about the winery, when you told me about the hummingbird that flew by when you were signing to buy the property, and how you thought it must be a good omen.
Or the bluebells that grow all over the vineyard, and how Fallon used to pick them to make bouquets when she was a little girl, how it was the first place you ever drove a tractor.
(CHUCKLES): And the last.
- You remembered all that? - Of course.
I'm sorry I ever made you feel like I'd forgotten you in all of this.
You are the heart and soul of Blue Belt.
That's why I want to be a part of it, because of you.
Well, I'll toast to that.
(APPLAUSE) FALLON: There you are.
I can't believe you hung up on me.
What is the matter with you? Shouldn't I be asking you that? You burst into song on the phone, Fallon.
And it really does smell weird in here, kind of like cheese.
So I sang, okay? I told you, music is the purest form of expression.
- And he took the book, right? - Yeah, he did.
Do you think he'll read it? I mean, did he seem interested? Should I text him? Maybe I'll text him.
Fallon, we broke into his house twice.
Okay? I'd let it breathe.
(SIGHS) For how long? ("YOU CAN'T HURRY LOVE" PLAYING) You can't hurry love No, you'll just have to wait, she said Love don't come easy But it's a game of give and take - You can't hurry love - No.
No, you'll just have to wait Just trust in a good time No matter how long it takes But how many heartaches must I stand Before I find the love To let me live again Right now the only thing That keeps me hanging on When I feel my strength Oh, no, it's almost gone I remember Mama said You can't hurry love No, you'll just have to wait She said love don't come easy But it's a game of give and take How long must I wait? Ooh, how much more must I take? Before loneliness will cause my heart, heart to break? Now I can't bear to live my life alone I grow impatient for a love To call my own But when I feel that I No, I can't go on Well, these precious words Keep me hanging on - (VOCALIZING) - I remember Mama said You can't hurry love No, you'll just have to wait She said love don't come easy It's a game of give and take You can't hurry love No, you'll just have to wait Just trust in a good time No matter how long it takes Well I guess The Supremes were right.
Huh? The song.
You were just singing.
"You Can't Hurry Love".
It's by The Supremes.
I always thought that was Phil Collins, but I wasn't singing.
Are you sure you're okay? Honestly? No.
Yeah, I don't think you should be alone.
So, why don't we go downstairs? Hmm? Where there's people and wine.
I could use a drink.
(CHUCKLES) KIRBY: Did you know - Culhane was here? - I did.
The Atlantix were exploring a partnership of sorts with the hotel after we open.
Could be a very lucrative arrangement for La Mirage.
Oh.
Of course.
'Cause money is more important than feelings, especially when they're mine.
I'm sorry your personal partnership didn't work out.
But I've known him for years.
Yeah.
You've known me for a few years, too, Dad.
Doesn't seem to mean much, though.
You know, just once it'd be nice if you chose me.
This is not about you, Kirby.
It's not even about me.
I have a responsibility to Sam to look after the best interests of this hotel.
If you don't like the deal, perhaps you should take it up with him.
And I think it's probably for the best that things didn't work out with Michael.
What do you mean? I mean that you and Michael dated for all of five minutes.
If this is how you're reacting, then obviously you still have a lot of growing up to do.
(LIVELY CHATTER, JAZZ MUSIC PLAYING) Cab or pinot? Yes.
Uh, maybe we should pace ourselves? Why don't we take a selfie? Mm? Here.
- Okay, ready? - (CAMERA CLICKS) Oh.
Adam.
There you are.
I think it all turned out pretty well, don't you? Thanks for holding down the fort while I finished up those new labels.
I think your dad seemed to like them.
Everyone loves things when they're shiny and new.
But you know my father these days.
He changes wives like he changes companies.
I haven't known him that long actually, but, um, then again, neither have you.
I'm his flesh and blood.
His one and only son, his heir.
SAM: (SIGHS) You look like someone killed your dog in every single one of these.
Fallon, there must be something that'll cheer you up.
Come on.
There might be one little thing.
I know you stole that invitation and made those other labels.
And I told Blake.
So I wouldn't get too cocky if I were you.
I don't know what you're talking about.
And I'm guessing you have no evidence for any of these accusations.
This time.
But something tells me it won't be the last.
("BURNING DOWN THE HOUSE" PLAYING) Ah, watch out You might get what you're after Cool babies Strange but not a stranger I'm an ordinary gal Burning down the house Are you hearing this? I'm trying.
Hold tight Wait till the party's over Hold tight We're in for nasty weather There has got to be a way Burning down the house Here's your ticket, pack your bags Time for jumping overboard The transportation is here Close enough, but not too far Maybe you know where you are Fighting fire with fire Mm, all wet Yeah, you might need a raincoat Shakedown Dreams walking in broad daylight Three hundred And sixty-five degrees Burning down the house My house Out of the ordinary That's right Don't want to hurt nobody Some things sure can sweep me off my feet Burning down the house What is he even talking about? No visible means of support And you have not seen nothing yet Everything's stuck together And I don't know what you expect Staring into the TV set Fighting fire with fire Burning down the house.
(BO BARKS, MUSIC STOPS ABRUPTLY) ADAM: Bo.
Bo, where'd you get that? Huh? (LIVELY CHATTER, JAZZ MUSIC PLAYING) - It's been a long time.
- Probably doesn't remember.
(WHIMPERS) (EXHALES SLOWLY) (PHONE CHIMES, VIBRATES) (PHONE CLICKS) - (GLASS SHATTERS) - Oh! I got it.
I'm sorry.
Sorry, sorry, sorry.
Liam? Are you real? Oh, my God, you are real.
And you're not wearing a ring.
Yeah.
I didn't get married.
(GAS HISSING) (GRUNTS) (EXPLOSION IN DISTANCE, CROWD CLAMORING) (GROANING) - Oh, my God.
- What the hell happened in here? Why the hell are you in my room? Why does it smell like melted cheese? - Someone call 911! - (GROANING) - Hang in there, okay? - I'm so sorry.
You have nothing to apologize for.
You probably saved all of our lives.
If you hadn't caught that gas leak when you did, who knows how much worse it would have been.
What if I can never see again? Let's just see what the doctor says.
I'm a doctor; I've seen injuries like this before.
Some people You are not "some people".
You are my son.
No matter what happens, I'm gonna be here.
I'm gonna take care of you.
PARAMEDIC: Time to go, Mr.
Carrington.
(SIRENS WAILING) - LIAM: Is he okay? - FALLON: I'm sure he will be.
I can't say the same for my fireplace, and I basically spent the entire day hallucinating from gas, but none of that matters.
Because you're here.
Did you read the book? - I read it.
- You did? That's great.
I knew that once you read it, you would remember what we had.
You know, you and me, not Trashley Fallon.
You were right.
I didn't marry Ashley because of the book.
Obviously, there's way more to this than I can remember.
- Mm-hmm.
- And I I shouldn't marry anyone until I can fill in those holes.
Or course.
We can take it slow.
No.
That's not what I mean.
The book didn't make me fall in love with you again.
Or at all.
What? Look, if I wrote that book, and if that's how I feel about you The girl in that book is selfish, callous.
I mean, she's definitely a narcissist.
Okay, okay, I get it.
I'm sorry.
I just I think I need to be on my own for a while.
Okay.
I saw you downstairs.
Yeah, you did.
I'm sorry we didn't get a proper introduction.
- I'm Kirby.
- Victor.
I'd shake your hand, but (CHUCKLES) My dad runs the hotel, so I wanted to come and give you a proper welcome.
Would you like a drink? Hey, what if something happened to her? Or she's gone.
It wouldn't be the first time.
I could use one of those.
Where have you been? We heard something about some sort of explosion - at the Carrington Manor.
- MONICA: Is everyone okay? I asked Fallon, but she hasn't texted me back.
It was a gas leak.
Fallon's fine.
Adam Carrington got the brunt of it.
What happened? I was planning on spoiling the wine, but let's just say a better opportunity came along.
Adam hurt you.
He tried to do more than that.
An eye for an eye, isn't it? I'm gonna go freshen up.
You don't think she I think she did.
VANESSA: Hello? Vanessa? Hi, sweetheart.
Sorry to call you so late, but I know you've been worried.
Things have been a little delicate here, but I'm getting it all back on track.
We are going to get everything we've always talked about.
When? Soon.
I just need you to sit tight a little while longer.
Okay?
