Dynasty (2017) s05e13 Episode Script

Do You Always Talk to Turtles

It's a doctor's office, Fallon.
Okay? I feel like you can break your "no sweatpants outside of the bedroom" rule just this once.
Some rules aren't meant to be broken, and I canceled the appointment anyway.
You did? Why? We don't need a sixth opinion.
I get it, I can't have a baby.
Well, we still haven't really talked about other options.
Honestly, I don't know if I'm ready for that conversation yet.
I was really excited to have a baby and to be pregnant.
Everyone's always talking about that magical glow.
Look, on the bright side, you won't have to deal with the morning sickness or the swollen ankles, or the gingivitis.
Well, gum disease aside, I think I just need a little time to come to terms with it all.
There's no rush.
Okay? Take all the time you need.
Speaking of time, I got to go.
- Maquillage de Molly & Marissa are coming in.
- Yeah.
- Yeah, they are.
- You know, the big makeup conglomerate.
We've already turned a bunch of their smaller beauty brands green.
But now, I am thinking they're finally ready - to trust us with the entire account.
- Yeah.
I assume by "green" you mean eco-friendly? - 'Cause it's not really a great color for skin tone.
- Hello? My mission statement, remember? Just because I can't have an heir doesn't mean I've given up on my legacy.
I am gonna save this planet, Liam, one vegan lip gloss at a time.
Well, sounds like a long-term plan.
And whenever you're ready to talk, I'll be right here.
I know.
Thank you.
I'm so happy we can rely on each other.
- From one lover to another.
- Ooh! I love the sound of Kenny Rogers in the morning.
Oh, Liam, "Islands in the Stream" is all Dolly.
And as much as I would love to stay here and give you a musical education, I've got to get to my 9:00 to 5:00.
You just can't get enough, can you? As much as I would love to stay for some morning delight, I have to get to the hospital.
Problem is, I need to get to my room without being spotted.
I don't think Fallon would care if she saw you.
I mean, she'd probably be happy that we're What are we, actually? We haven't had that conversation yet.
Are we dating? I feel like I'm 17 again.
We like each other, right? Seems like that to me.
Oh, you really are 17 again, or maybe it's just your hormones.
However, I think we should spend some time with each other outside the bedroom before we start labeling anything.
Oh, that sounds less fun.
And also maybe outside of the manor, because I don't really want to bump into my father or my brother or my sister.
I get it.
Let's do something tomorrow, then.
It's a date.
But, in the meantime, as long as I'm stuck in here Oh, well, now who's 17 again? Ooh.
Tell me my future, oh mystical one.
I could've sworn our future involved some gym time, where's your stuff? Ooh, I'm gonna need a rain check.
I made some different workout plans with Sasha, if you catch my drift.
No, please explain it to me and definitely wink again.
So, all is well in the land of lovebirds, then? It's great.
We are making some sweet music together.
In fact, I'm asking her to move in tomorrow.
Isn't that a little soon? I mean, do you even know her last name? Favorite color? Preferred nut milk? What adult has a favorite color? Chartreuse.
Besides you.
And what better way to get to know somebody than to move in with them? Well, she's just right here.
Oh, my God.
I love tarot.
- Oh.
- Read me.
Girl, with pleasure.
Concentrate on the cards.
Queen of Wands.
- What does that mean? - It's the best card.
It means I'm a natural-born leader - and inspire others.
- Ah.
And are super self-aware.
Oh, that is definitely you.
- Shall we? - Yes.
Well, you've been MIA.
The NordicStar Airlines submissions are due soon, and while my publicist has been getting the Dom-Mystique name out there, I have been working to get my portfolio just perfect.
That explains the, uh, billboards all over town.
- Speaking of press - Mm? I saw a blurb that someone anonymously posted a Plenexia drug formula online.
I can only assume you've made some people very unhappy with this whole escapade.
Yes, I may have received a threatening voice mail from Plenexia's CEO, but it's nothing I can't handle.
All right? The important thing is that justice was served.
Luna would be very proud of you.
But I am relieved that this whole Robin Hood business is finished, so I can stop worrying about you and we can both focus on me.
Who said anything was finished? I-I'm just getting started.
There's so many others out there who are just like Payne.
In fact, I've already found my next target.
Michael Bradford.
The guy who owns the athletic shoe company, SpringTime? I have two pairs of his leopard print high-tops.
What'd he do? I'm keeping my shoes.
Colby Co.
tried to buy Bradford's music software company a while ago.
Right before the deal closed, I learned that his employee turnover rate was sky-high.
He fired people indiscriminately, and he'd call employees into his shareholder meetings just to humiliate them.
Okay, but what'd he do wrong now? Uh, more of the same, with the shoe company.
Only this time, he's not just verbally abusing his employees, he's cutting into their benefits.
He has a private jet, his wife's hidden on payroll, and falling sales.
How else could he afford all that? I just need to prove it.
- Jeff, honey.
- Mm? You do know that you are not some invincible superhero, right? These are powerful people you're dealing with.
Yeah, okay, but I'm on the right side, Mom.
Hey, Batman didn't have any superpowers, either.
Right? Just a genius-level intellect and some truly stellar tech.
Sound like anyone you know? Hey! Oh, good, you're here.
Does Grand Marnier say "Give us all your business"? - Yes, but they're not coming.
- What? - Why not? - Molly & Marissa heard about the PPA opening and realized it was Blake's airport.
They're threatening to pull their current contracts.
What the hell does Morell have to do with PPA? That's Blake's non-eco-friendly company, - not mine.
- He's your father.
And, plus, PPA used to be yours.
It looks bad.
Well, how do we make it look better? I'm not sure.
Here's what we'll do.
You find a way to get Morell to reduce PPA's carbon emissions enough so that the makeup ladies love us, and I'll try to convince my dad that his airport needs to be eco-friendly.
Who wouldn't want to go green? Clearly, you don't know Blake Carrington.
Let's maybe save one of those bottles for him.
You're still here.
I work here.
Where else would I be? Well, I just thought you'd have moved to your new office by now, what with the demotion and everything.
Oh, since I'm here, I will take that chief of staff parking pass off your hands.
Demotion? Am I supposed to know what you're talking about? You think that the board is gonna keep a chief of staff who used the hospital to indulge his illicit botanical experiments? The vote to remove you is merely just a formality at this point.
You know, I-I did warn you not to mess with me.
Now you're just gonna have to pay the price.
I mean, what, you've lost your dream job, your miracle ingredient, and with any luck, your medical license.
Oh, you're delusional if you think I'm losing my job.
Or my parking pass.
I think you're just mad because you've run out of people to bully, bribe, or blackmail.
But you will have a considerably smaller office to decorate.
Hey, uh, yeah, it's been a while.
I've been thinking about you a lot lately.
Is this the entire presentation? 'Cause it's doing nothing for me.
Glad to know that sense of humor declines with age.
So, here's our problem.
One of Morell's clients is threatening to void their contract unless PPA reduces their carbon emissions by 20%.
I think you said "our problem" when you meant to say "my problem.
" "My" meaning you, not me.
My problems are your problems are our problems.
But, luckily, I have a solution that works for everyone.
Morell doesn't only provide clean energy these days.
We present a blueprint to turn your whole company eco-friendly.
So, PPA would hire Morell to come in and green up your infrastructure.
Change all the lighting to LED, switch to energy-saving escalators and install a reclaimed water delivery service.
This would not only garner you amazing press, but it would actually save you money in the long run.
- This all sounds good.
- Mm-hmm.
Yeah, it's just a little too good.
What's the catch? Well, you would just have to, uh, delay your airport opening by two months while we go in and start to make these changes.
- And before you say no - Too late.
Wait, no.
I had three more slides left and a Q and A session.
I've got a Q: have you lost your mind? I just spend the last year fighting land deals and budget issues, the Environmental Species Protection Program.
And you want me to wait while you screw in a few fancy lightbulbs? More than just a few.
And you wouldn't even have PPA if it weren't for me.
We can't afford a delay, Fallon.
There are construction loans to repay and the airport's credibility to consider.
And also, I don't care about some fake hippie Birkenstock-wearing do-gooders who want to green my airport to up their street cred.
Just because you're content watching the world go up in flames doesn't mean everybody else is.
Okay, here's an idea.
If you can retrofit those changes before the opening in 48 hours at a steep family discount I don't see why the words "luxury service" and "green energy" can't coexist.
Two days? Now who's crazy? You know what? This meeting's adjourned.
So, what do you think of our next contestant, Chad Sasha's hot-tempered and totally reckless.
Okay, no spoilers.
I'm still on episode one.
Wh I'm talking about your model friend, Sasha.
Real life.
Not Fun-Boy Island or whatever it is you're watching.
Start over.
I need to recalibrate.
Sasha's got Culhane wrapped around her perfectly manicured little finger.
I had a bad feeling the second he told me about her, and I ignored it.
But then I read her cards, and I pulled the Queen of Wands.
I can't ignore it now.
My gut and the cards can't both be wrong.
That was probably just some bad kombucha.
Ever since you found out Gaga has her own personal tarot reader, you've lost your mind.
Kirby, I'm perfectly sane.
We need to break them up.
You said it yourself, she's a total bitch.
Well, I mean she does tend to backstab other models when it comes to jobs, and she was really mean to hair and makeup at our last shoot.
You know who's mean to people who work for them? Mean people, and you told me she dumped her boyfriend right after he proposed at the top of the Eiffel Tower because she didn't like the ring.
Yeah, and then he got really depressed and, like, moved to Iowa.
See? Do you think Culhane will know the difference between clarity versus color? Or do you want him to move to Iowa, too? I don't think moving to Iowa is a requirement if Sasha dumps you, but maybe your cards are right.
I mean, they did say - that romance would be in my future.
- Listen, we need to save him.
He's planning on asking her to move in tomorrow, right after he flies her to Nashville to see the Clashing Flannels.
They're having lunch at La Mirage before they leave in the afternoon.
We just have to figure out a way to separate them.
Does it have to be tomorrow? Yes.
Why? Do you have a date or something? Hold on.
Did you say something about romance earlier? Uh Yeah.
I just rewatched The Notebook.
That's one good-looking couple.
It's fine.
Um, I'll be there tomorrow.
Oh, yes, that's the spot.
Right there.
You know, you really don't need any of this stuff.
Have you thought about modeling? Alexam could use a face like yours.
Cool it, Casanova.
I don't hear from you for months, and suddenly you show up offering a free refresh? Ooh.
What do you really want? Nothing crazy, just a little help securing some Bokocho extract.
I know that Van Kirk Industries has a shipping port out of India.
Oh, is that all? Just a little violation of FDA regulations? Don't let this baby-smooth skin fool you.
- I wasn't born yesterday.
- Look.
You like my product, and I love giving it to you.
But I can't be your confidential cosmetic clinician without my secret ingredient.
A few extra crates won't hurt anyone.
No one will notice.
Well, what is some illegal importing between old friends? I can call my contact in Mumbai, but you have to do something for me in return.
I'm a little tired, but, uh desk or couch? It's a charming offer, but I've already climbed the family tree.
The Van Kirks have an upcoming board meeting to decide who controls VKI, and I need Liam's vote to secure my position.
But he's not returning my calls.
Gosh, he's so dramatic.
All I said was that maybe Fallon's coma was a blessing in disguise.
How very glass-half-full of you.
I just need 15 minutes alone with him, and that's where you come in.
Obviously, I'd love to help, but I'm not sure I'm the right man for the job.
Liam doesn't exactly trust me.
Oh, that's too bad.
You know, now that I think about it, maybe VKI isn't the right shipping company for you.
Great news.
The LED lighting can be rush delivered in the next two weeks.
You're not smiling.
Unfortunately, Blake seems set on killing both the planet and my deal.
Without a show of good faith in emission reduction, Molly & Marissa will pull their contract.
Look, I have been racking my brain all night, but I just don't think it's possible in this time frame.
We can always outsource.
The Dodson Initiative is the world's largest producer of renewable jet fuel.
Blake can reduce emissions by 70% as soon as the paperwork is signed.
Clearly, you want this company to fail.
I thought this was a good idea.
It is if you're the VP of Dodson.
If they solve the problem, we're just exposing our lack of up-to-date tech.
It makes Morell look weak.
I don't think that's true.
The saying isn't "If you want something done right, you have to let others do it.
" It has to be Morell.
Well, then, we're gonna need more time.
I know I have a youthful glow, but I really am his mother.
- Jeff, have this man unhand me.
- You can ease up.
She's fine.
Thank you.
- Redecorating? - Ha! Something like that.
"I said you would pay.
Still want to play?" I'm not in the mood for riddles.
That note was attached to what's left of my painting.
I told you not to mess with the shoe guy.
I haven't even started with Michael Bradford and SpringTime.
This is from Richard Payne, the CEO of Plenexia.
Well, did you call the police? And what? Admit that I stole his top secret intel first? No.
Besides, I assume this makes us even.
Hey, hey, hey.
I knew retaliation was a possibility.
Okay? I'll be prepared if Michael Bradford tries to strike.
- Wait, you're still going after SpringTime? - Absolutely.
Why? Stealing a shoe design is more important than your safety? What I'm doing is way more important than stealing his shoe design.
- I'm worried about you.
- Well, don't be.
I'm just looking out for the little guy.
I've purchased a considerable amount of stock in SpringTime.
Their shareholder meeting is tomorrow, and I'm going to be on that video call to expose Michael Bradford for who he really is.
It's time he had the tables turned on him.
You said there was something wrong with my mother? Don't be alarmed.
She was in a serious car accident, and she needs emergency surgery.
Yeah, um You know what? Let's let's save some time and money.
Skip the surgery and let her go.
Pull the plug.
Jack Liam Ridley Lowden, I am your mother.
How dare you? It's a miracle.
I cannot believe that I mean so little to you.
You have grown so cold.
Oh, come on.
I knew this was a setup from the beginning.
And even if I didn't, next time that you're in an accident, don't reapply fresh lipstick before they put in an oxygen tube.
Oh, and maybe take off your heels.
This is sad, even for you.
Well, what did you expect me to do? You're not returning any of my calls.
I need your help.
I had to get your attention.
And you thought this was the best way to do that? Your Aunt Mora is trying to replace me as president of VKI.
But if you and your sister would join me, we'd have the votes to shut her down.
Yeah, I-I think I'm gonna sit this one out.
Would think of your future? You may not like the Van Kirks, but this is still your family business.
No, Mom, it's your business, and VKI is not my future.
That's the only reason I showed up here, to tell you that.
So now I can go.
So, I did what you asked and I got him to come.
Uh, can we talk about my shipment now? Well, there's nothing to talk about until the VKI vote.
If I have no company, you have no deal.
For the record, I think I've proven that I'm far more valuable to you when I'm alive.
Alive? What are you talking about? Do you think I brought you out here to kill you? You seemed so upset about PPA, and you did bring a large bag for a trip to the woods.
The only thing getting buried in this bag is Blake's dream of opening his airport tomorrow.
If the Environmental Species Protection people find any sign of an endangered animal on these grounds, all construction must stop.
The whole process could take months.
And it just so happens there's an ESPP agent on the way.
But what if they don't find any animals? Oh, they'll find at least one.
Meet the endangered gopher tortoise.
There are only 567 left in the wild.
Well, 566 at the moment.
Want to hold him? It's Sam.
I got to take this.
One sec.
Yo, what's up? Are you at the hotel? You need to get to the club right now.
I'm kind of in the middle of something.
I wouldn't ask if I didn't have to.
Listen, two headliners got booked tonight, and they're both there about to draw blood over who goes on last.
Well, can't you go? Where's Javier? I'm stuck in traffic, and they'll only talk to an owner.
It's funny how you remember that we're equal partners when it comes to things like this.
It's okay.
I am so sorry.
I'll be right back.
Where's he off to in the middle of your date? Seems kind of rude.
- Work stuff.
- Typical.
I am glad to be out of that situation, but I'm sure you'll get used to it.
You dated.
Well, I like that he's passionate about his job.
Yeah, I mean, I did too, at first.
But then I started to feel like his mistress, because he was married to his soccer team.
That's fine.
You know me, I'm not exactly into being attached at the hip anyway.
I like to go out.
Though back when we were a couple, I was a bit of a partier and he was not into that at all.
I mean, he would get so mad if I was out late with my friends, and late to him is 10:30 p.
Serious grandpa vibes.
That doesn't sound like him.
Oh, maybe he's changed.
I just feel like you should know what you're getting yourself into.
You know, I owe it to you as a friend.
Blake is playing with his watch.
He's clearly pissed.
Just wait until he sees our tortoise.
Well, I don't know what you have been told, but I we moved every turtle, egg, and God knows what else to a farm to live out the rest of their slow, boring lives.
First, they're tortoises, not turtles.
Second, I can assure you, Mr.
Carrington, they're anything but boring.
I think what my husband is trying to say is that all the tur toises are safe and sound.
Far away.
What can we do to help speed things along? I need to take a look around the property for any tortal activity.
If what you're saying is true, I'll be out of your "hare" soon enough.
Okay, it's showtime.
Here we go.
What? No.
No, no, no.
What is the stupid tortoise doing? He's going the wrong way.
- Okay, give me your shoe.
- What? Uh, they're limited edition.
Oh, my God.
They're not even runway.
Come on.
Give it to me.
What was that? Look wat we have there.
I guess you didn't get every one.
How can you really know that this one's endangered? Look at him.
He looks so unworried.
Unfortunately for your airport, his markings make it clear that he is.
I'm Eden.
We'll be seeing a lot of each other for the next month or two.
We are supposed to be talking, not snogging.
Well, technically the date hasn't started yet.
Are we going camping or something? No, I thought we'd go on a picnic.
I mean, that's what normal people do who already don't live together, right? Well, that depends how you define normal.
Amanda? Is that you? Would you come here, please? Stay here, okay? I'll get rid of him.
Um, sorry.
I'm actually in a bit of a rush.
I need to get to work, you know how it is, the old, uh, um, ball and chain.
Yeah, you know, I do know how it is.
That's-that's why I need your help with PPA.
Oh, wish I could, but these malpractice suits, they just won't defend themselves.
My airport is getting shut down because of one stupid, supposedly endangered turtle.
I wouldn't ask if it wasn't an emergency.
Well, I just don't really know that much about environmental law.
You're a Carrington, you're smarter than anyone I have on payroll.
This airport means everything to me.
Sure, yeah.
Uh We'll discuss it.
I'll make some calls.
Great, everything's in my office.
I know you're disappointed in Liam's reaction, which is why I am here to offer you ten percent of Alexam's profits if you can work this shipping deal.
I don't need money.
Laura, darling, what do I need to give you to make this happen? Just name it.
Why do I suddenly feel like I'm making a deal with the devil? Can you grant me immortality? Well, everlasting youth is my bread and butter.
How about I offer you a standing appointment of free injections for a year.
For the use of my ships and my contacts, make it my own personal lifetime supply.
No, that's insane.
How about, uh, I offer you house calls? - Personal service.
- Nope.
Everything upfront or nothing.
I'd like to say I trust you, but you're a Carrington.
Lying is your dominant gene.
If I let you self-administer, I'd be jeopardizing my medical license.
Not to mention I only have fewer than ten left.
I need more extract.
I'll take everything you have on hand and the rest when you're back in production.
And I know how to handle injectables.
I've been getting maintenance since before you were born.
- Fine, we have a deal.
- Ah.
If I can't have my son in my life, at least I'll look too young to have one.
It's not you Liam's mad at.
Fallon just found out she can't carry a baby, and they're taking it pretty hard.
He just needs some time.
You're screwed.
Oh, is that your official legal opinion? Look, the ESPP has opened an investigation of the property.
It could take up to 12 weeks.
This will cripple us.
Our loans are due in half that time.
And you're also being charged with reckless endangerment for not handling the problem before the construction started.
Then this is nonsense.
Cristal oversaw the transfer herself.
Everything was handled safely and completely.
Everything except for one slow reptile.
Something doesn't feel right.
I've never seen so much as a snake in that grass.
Hey, I didn't realize we were having a family meeting.
What are we discussing? The airport opening is off.
The plant-eating, tree-hugging environmental protection agent shut us down.
Some endangered species crap.
I'm sorry, I was just about to tell you that my team was ready with the LED lighting, but we'll hold off until you're ready.
I don't want to stress you out even more.
And I'll put a call into a judge, see if I can get this expedited.
Just when you think you're safe, a tornado hits.
Well, let's hope this is the last one.
Morell will make sure to stormproof.
You guys are family.
PPA is my first priority.
- That's kind of you, Fallon.
- God.
Who knew one little turtle could cause such a stir? Keep me posted on everything.
So, is it congrats or condolences? After I handled the battle of the bands, I spoke to the events team to see how such a big mistake happened.
Marie said she warned you, but you didn't listen.
She must've misunderstood me.
I said I wanted two rock bands on back-to-back nights, not two back-to-back rock bands on one night.
And then I opened Snapchat, and I saw that your Bitmoji was at the manor when you were supposedly in your car.
- Do people still use that app? - Okay, that is enough.
- Agreed, let's have a drink.
- No.
I meant enough lying.
Kirby just happened to be at the restaurant during the time I was gone and badmouthed me to Sasha.
I couldn't even ask her to move in with me, because, when I got back, she left.
Well, Kirby can be a real bitch.
I know Kirby did not do this alone, Sam.
Okay, fine.
I can be a bitch, too, but only when it's needed.
The Queen of Wands isn't a great card.
It means she'll bring chaos into your life.
I tried to think reasonably about this, but look at what she did to her ex.
And remember all those things Charlie said about her? Plus, she almost ruined your movie with a single Insta post.
That guy was a jerk, the photo was a mistake, and people change.
I'm trying to protect you.
- I'm being a good friend here.
- Really? It doesn't feel like it.
So, go ahead and keep your UNO! cards and your crystal ball away from us.
What took you so long? Didn't take me long at all.
Just a few minutes, actually.
It's a little late for some stepmother bonding, don't you think? Or are you here to read me a bedtime story? Yeah, ever hear of the tortoise and the air port? I much prefer the one with the seven little maids.
Speaking of which, can you please ask Jeanette to bring me my sleeping mask? Ask her yourself.
I know what you did, Fallon.
You sabotaged the opening.
You sound crazy.
Or wait, is this the impostor Cristal again? You said "one little turtle," but no one in there said a word about turtles.
Or how many there were.
Are you sure it wasn't an impostor Fallon? This is a limited-time offer.
Call the ESPP and tell them this was a hoax, or I will make sure that Blake knows everything.
Morell won't be the only thing you lose.
I know how much his trust means to you.
Wow, looks like that lady boss seminar really worked miracles.
Have I made myself clear? Crystal.
This project has experienced quite a bit of turbulence.
But from now on, it'll be nothing but blue skies ahead.
Now, if you indulge me, just for a moment, I need to thank my partner, both in business and in life, my wife Cristal.
She and my daughter Amanda are the reason we are celebrating today and not three months from now.
I would also like to thank the man who inspired me to pursue this dream.
I only wish that he was here today to witness its unveiling, but I am sure that he is watching from up above.
Welcome to the Joseph Anders Memorial Airport.
I understand.
Thank you.
Sorry if you felt left out of the speech, but I figured Blake's gratitude for you fixing this would be outweighed by his anger for you causing this.
You're probably right.
You want to help me out? Can you find me another multi-million-dollar makeup company that wants to go green? Because Molly & Marissa are leaving.
I wish I could, but I'm sure you'll figure something out.
You always do.
What are you doing? The shareholder meeting's just about to start.
Oh, I'm aware.
What are you doing? Taking down a villain and serving justice.
At least I was about to before you stopped me.
Enough with the comic book talk.
Have you thought about what will happen to SpringTime if you get on that call and expose their CEO? What if the scandal you're about to cause shuts down the company? Well, I suppose that's the price Michael Bradford will have to pay.
If he's as sleazy a CEO as you say, it's a price he could afford.
But what about everyone else? 500 people could lose their benefits and their jobs.
They're working for a monster.
Okay? I'm saving them.
I know your intentions are good, but this isn't the way to make a difference.
Destroying the villain doesn't always make you the hero.
So what am I supposed to do? Just let him get away with this? I think you can do more good by helping than harming.
The Jeff I know is a builder, an inventor.
Let me put it in terms you'll understand.
This is a job for Bruce Wayne, not Batman.
I know we're technically out of the bedroom, but this isn't exactly the date I had in mind.
Oh, you're hard to please.
Champagne, charcuterie, fancy dresses.
What more could a girl want? I don't know, about 150 fewer people? You know, you'd think for a private airport they'd have a little bit more privacy.
I have an idea.
Come with me.
It's a duet.
Aren't they equally important? Isn't that the point of a duet? Dolly Parton has her own theme park.
Kenny Rogers has a few chicken restaurants.
Well, he's actually not alive anymore, but I get your point.
What? Kenny Rogers is dead? Oh, don't be so dramatic.
I'm just finding out about this.
When did this happen? No, that wasn't about Kenny.
It was about my mother being here.
LVK's here? Don't let Cristal see.
I just hope she doesn't see me.
I-I can't sit through another lecture on how I'm not thinking about the family business.
I take it she doesn't know about your adventures in baby-making? No, and I'd like to keep it that way, so lower your voice.
I mean, she is your mother.
Maybe she's just looking out for you? Yeah.
I know, I heard it.
You know, she claims it's about what's best for me, as long as it's really what's best for her.
It's all about what she wants for her own personal agenda.
- Hmm.
- See if you can come up with a list of 20 companies who are dying to go eco-friendly.
Okay? And, Kelly, make sure they have deep pockets.
Thank you.
- It's the mother-in-law.
- So, I see that two weeks of "beauty rest" didn't do much good.
I think you called it a coma? What are you doing here, Laura? You know what I love about you, Fallon? My father and my brother? It's that you're always proving me right.
I knew you were useless.
But you can't even get pregnant now? - Excuse me? - Don't worry, dear.
It's probably best you don't have children.
You haven't got the maternal instinct.
You wouldn't know maternal instinct if it bit you in the ass.
You're denying your husband a family.
And, meanwhile, I've got a list of Georgia debs just ready and anxious to get the job done.
If you really loved Liam, you'd just step aside.
Give it up, you old gank.
Your attempts to break us up are as futile as your attempt to look younger.
Well, I don't have to attempt anything this time, 'cause you did all the work for me, you barren bitch.
You Don't you dare touch my wife.
You're taking her side? The woman that just violently accosted your mother? Liam, she is unhinged! No! She's just had enough of your crap.
And so have I.
Giving birth doesn't make someone a mother, Laura.
You're living proof of that.
I am done.
I am calling my lawyer in the morning, and I'm having him cut you out of my will and my life.
You know what? Why not today? Need a ride? I don't want to see either of you ever again.
Can we get that in writing? I'm so sorry, Fallon, that you're such a failure.
You always have been.
And you always will be.
Why did we just do that? We're supposed to be learning about each other, not joining the not-exactly-a-mile-high club.
Well, I did learn what you sound like at full volume.
Enough of that.
Let's get down to business, okay? Oat or almond milk? - Oat.
- Mm.
Welcome aboard, Dan.
My pleasure, Blake.
- Oh, my God.
- I'm thrilled to take you on the inaugural flight out of the new airport.
- Can't wait.
- Come on up to the cockpit.
Now what? Now we have plenty of time to get to know each other, right? I need to say I'm sorry times, like, 1,000.
I do stand by the fact that I was trying to protect you.
I'm sure you do.
But that was only, like, ten percent of it.
So, was the other 90% just that you hated Sasha? No.
It had nothing to do with her.
I was just panicking that our friendship was slipping away.
I mean, you spend all your free time with Sasha, and all we talk about is work.
I just feel like we're business partners and that's it.
- That is not true.
- Well, that's how it feels.
You went from your movie with Liam right to Sasha.
I don't know, I guess I just miss the old times.
You know, like, charity tennis and designing the new club.
- Electrocuting contractors.
- Okay.
I promise no more missed gym days.
And it's okay if there are.
Maybe you can even bring Sasha, and we can make it like a fitness class.
Actually, I'd rather not, considering that Ms.
Sasha dumped me.
No, no, no, no, no.
This is totally my fault.
I'll call her right now and I'll explain.
What's her number? This had nothing to do with you or Kirby.
I guess I missed the memo that we were seeing other people, which is a problem when you want someone to move in.
Well, that's her loss and your gain.
Because Mrs.
Culhane is out there somewhere, and you'll meet her when you least expect it.
Good, 'cause I am no longer expecting it.
So, should we hit the gym now? Actually, I'd rather hit the tequila.
Would you like to join? I think I can help with that.
So, I made a call to the head of the Dodson Initiative, and PPA's green problem is now taken care of.
With the cost covered 100% by Morell.
PPA never had a green problem.
You did.
You know that this is what's best for your company in the long run.
I just sped up your timetable.
And you know this is best for both of our companies.
I assume the beauty brand is back with you? If this always could've solved everything, why did you need to bother with the turtle games? I just couldn't be a failure twice in one week.
Twice? When we found out that I can't have a baby I just felt like my body had failed me.
And I felt that maybe I had failed Liam, too.
But you know that's not true.
Yeah, logically, yes, but emotionally I just I always thought that I would be able to carry my own baby.
You know, that I would be able to have that bond and that connection.
Unfortunately, I know exactly how you feel.
What happened to each of us isn't fair.
Life isn't fair, but you are definitely not a failure.
Do you still wish that you would've had a baby? I try not to think about what I can't have anymore.
And I found a different kind of fulfillment.
So will you.
You're allowed to ask for help if you need it.
You don't have to do this alone.
Thank you, Cristal.
And Morell doesn't need to cover PPA's cost.
I admire your drive to leave this world a better place.
So, you'll cover it, then? Well, 50%.
I still have to deal with your father.
What are we celebrating? The fact that you were right.
Humiliation was not the way to take Michael Bradford down.
So, what did you do? I got him the easy way.
I bought a lot more stock, enough to control the company, and then I fired his ass.
And you're okay with letting him get away with his crimes? Oh, no.
I'm sending my findings to the IRS.
Michael will not be running another company any time soon, and he can kiss that private jet goodbye.
And probably his wife, too.
I'm proud of you.
It's easy to get lost in revenge.
Maybe Dom-Mystique can do a shoe collab in the future.
Let's put a pin in that for now.
Look, I have been trying to fill a void, and I realized what I've really been missing is me.
I spent years working on Colby Co.
, and then I just let it crumble with a little help from neurotoxicity.
You're young.
Life is a marathon, not a sprint.
And now, I finally know which direction I'm running.
It is time to rebuild myself, my company and my legacy.
I am so sorry for what my mother said.
She deserved a lot more than a slap in the face.
Well, she'll get what she's owed eventually.
And as much as I love you for checking in on me, sometimes I forget to see how you're doing.
Oh, Fallon, I'm fine.
Okay? I just want to be here for you.
And I appreciate that, but I'm not the only one going through this.
We're a team.
Look, it does hurt, you know, to imagine not starting a family with you.
Well, that's what I wanted to talk to you about.
How do you feel about surrogacy? I just want to have a baby with you.
Okay? I don't care how he or she gets here.
You're okay with this? Yeah.
I mean, our lives have never gone as planned.
We got married in my high school theater where a guy held me at knifepoint and accused me of killing his sister, so I feel like surrogacy will be a piece of cake.
Yeah, we never did get our wedding pictures, did we? It's weird.
Growing up as a Carrington, asked for help was always seen as a sign of weakness, and then later used against you.
And I really want to break that cycle.
So, we're doing this? - We're having a baby? - We're having a baby.
I've waited all day.
I held up my end of the deal.
I am a woman of my word.
That email is drafted, and I just need to hit "send.
" But, in the meantime, why don't we make ourselves a little more comfortable.
Uh No, I-I'd prefer to celebrate after.
Oh, we will.
Before - and after.
- Wait, wait, how many of those injections did you give yourself? D-Do you know what they can do? Don't worry.
I am very in tune with what my body's capable of handling.
Wh-Whoa! Apparently your body is not used to walking.
All right.
Up we go.
This is exactly why I wanted you to send that email first! Oh, come on.
I couldn't have done this without you.
