After re-watching some of the HD episodes of season 6, I came across a scene with a detail that surprisingly, no one has ever mentioned or seemed to remember. After the trial where Blake is proven to be the Carrington son who left his mother to burn, Caress strolls into Alexis' office and casually announces that she's been looking through her old diaries, and found an entry that revealed the Morrell sisters were out shopping on that day, and weren't even in Denver for most of that day. Oddly enough, despite Alexis' initial nervous reaction, nothing is ever done about this little detail. The diary is never mentioned again, it never comes into play with how Blake proves his innocence and gets his house back, and I gotta ask... why not? I mean, when Blake did get his house and company back, it was by using the written confessions of both a dead woman and a drunkard. I mean, seriously? Caress' diary would have provided much more substantial proof, as Caress was both alive and presumably had no ill reputation. And the diary itself couldn't be made out as fake, since it would have been an entire book filled with entries, or so I imagine. Of course, I've also wondered, why didn't Caress simply come forward a lot sooner? I mean, she could have helped Blake during his trial and her revelation would have proved that Alexis had committed perjury, which would get her into a LOT of trouble. Which would serve as sufficient punishment on Caress' part: Alexis would wind up in jail just as she, Caress, had been. And this would happen almost right after Alexis prevented Caress from publishing "Sister Dearest." With Alexis in jail, Caress could use that time to find a way to get the book published after all. So, with that being said, why DIDN'T Caress come forward? Then again, perhaps she figured her diary entry alone wouldn't be enough proof. Perhaps she wanted to make absolute certain that she could prove Ben was the one who let his mother die. She did, after all, do some investigating and discovered that Ben had been meeting with Emily Fallmont. Only afterwards, she instead decided to blackmail Ben for 10.5 million dollars, which she could have obtained from Blake as a way of thanks for helping prove his innocence. So why did Caress choose not to divulge all that information to Blake? Why did she give Ben the chance to keep it all hidden? And here's what I think the show could have added in: Caress had fallen in love with Ben, and so therefore, her priorities were skewed. However, I'd still have her blackmail him, because she wants a bit of financial freedom herself. And of course Ben still has her abducted and sent back to Caracas. As for the diary, I'd add in a scene where Alexis demands to know where the diary is, only for Caress to smugly say she's hidden it, and in a much better place than "Sister Dearest". The whereabouts of the diary remain a mystery until season 7, when Caress is rescued and brought back to Denver. She is then snuck into the Carrington mansion by Leslie and Amanda, because, of course, that's where she hid the diary. However, Caress discovers to her shock that its gone from its hiding place. And of course, Amanda and Leslie must help hide Caress when Ben walks in. After a tense moment, Leslie manages to lead her father away while Amanda helps her aunt escape unnoticed. But now there's the question, where could the diary have gone? And as it turns out, while Leslie is visiting Steven at his apartment, she notices Danny coloring in what definitely is not a coloring book. She snatches it away, and realizes that its none other than Caress' diary! Danny had taken the item before he and his father moved out of the mansion. Leslie desperately searches through the diary, hoping that Danny hadn't colored over the entry that described Alexis and Caress shopping the day Ellen died, and to her relief, there it is, untouched. Leslie presents the diary to Uncle Blake and Auntie Caress, who promptly use it to blackmail Alexis into giving Blake the mansion back, and to send Ben packing out of Denver (and possibly out of America). So yeah. That would have made just the tiniest bit more sense, I think, anyway. What do you all think?
