Some stuff happened on The Rig, most of it crap, but I did like Ben's sort of rape attempt against Alexis and Blake making fun of the fact that Ben all of a sudden has a daughter. That stuff with Adam running into her... just horrendous. And who was surprised that oil rig exploded? And, finally, the famous A Love Remembered (1). Wow. Everything about it screams, this is a Very. Special. Episode. Even the directing seems to wake up. I have to admit, the explosion was pretty decent and despite some ridiculous plot holes (they think to have Alexis flip her ring to make it look like a wedding band but she spends the entire scene touching Blake, meaning he'd feel the stone that's on her palm!!!), it is a doozy. I don't recall Collins looking this gorgeous in years. The set they build them is nice (the exterior shot, though, is clearly California). Most importantly, the whole thing progresses with a steady pace, excitement, good dialogue and--shock!!!--it makes dramatic sense. It's just too much. Quite interesting that Alexis wants to ignore the leases when she remembers her love for Blake. Of course, for every good Alexis/Blake scene, we have Krystle moaning and sighing as she's so useless that she can't even get her own damn self a ticket and must beg Steven to do so. The restaurant scene with Dex and Krystle was interesting; I wonder if they would have ever thought of pairing the two. Even Sammy Jo's accident, although stupid, is executed surprisingly and well. The whole thing is somewhat a letdown, though, when the episode ends with Alexis just ordering that Blake is not allowed any calls or visitors.. so, in other words, what she's been doing all episode long.
