I watched The Ball last night. Some decent stuff: Krystle and Alexis in a scene together. While not terrifically written, it is shot as mostly the two actresses in frame together, which is a terrific idea. Even after all these years, when you have Evans and Collins in a scene together, the chemistry explodes off the screen. Also, some fun playful stuff between Alexis and Dex, even if her calling her "lover" every two seconds becomes annoying. I am not sure where they're going with Sammy Jo's false pregnancy and don't care about Adam and Dana loving each other. The REALLY bad stuff: Blake running in and out of rooms for the entire episode, yelling "Dammit!" to people and getting them to do what he wants just with the power of his self-righteousness. Also, the worst of the worst, Steven freaking out at a man flirting with him (how DARE he!) and angry that he did it "in my family's home!". What the ever-loving f.uck??? Finally, Blake forcing Alexis to sign everything back to him was great fun, even if he managed it too easily, and not much was done with Alexis' takeover. I genuinely liked Blake for the first time in ages when he told Alexis to sleep in the master bedroom for tonight because he'd disinfect it the next day. Catty! Alexis deserves this if only for that hideous hairdo. LOL at everyone dressed in black and white and Alexis sashaying around in red.
