Once he arrives home is is telling his parents what happened and Ann snaps at him that Rebecca is trying to do the best she can. Ok. Between the locket, Harris not-so-subtle jabs and this, I’m starting to think that there is a baby somewhere in Ann’s past. Since said baby isn’t in the picture, I’m going to go with the baby either dying or she had to give the baby up for adoption.
John Ross and Elena are out to dinner when John Ross sees Not Marta leaving the restaurant. He freaks out and follows her outside, but she is gone. He then gets a phone call from his mexican drug lord/thug ordering him to meet in one hour. When John Ross goes to his house, he asks about the oil being delayed. In exchange for more time, John Ross tells him how Not Marta skimmed money off of the sale of Southfork. Mexican drug lord is pissed and gives John Ross an extra week.
The least he could have done was set another place for dinner
Christopher shows up for Rebecca’s doctor’s appointment to do the paternity test. He is still being a hard-ass and she is all pure and innocent. They love to milk these stereotypes all they can, don’t they?
Elena meets Sue Ellen for lunch so Sue Ellen can try to talk Elena into giving John Ross the oil to appease the Mexican drug lords. Elena tells her she wants nothing to do with drilling on Southfork. Sue Ellen calls her out and asks if she values John Ross more than how much she opposes drilling at Southfork. As the camera pans out, who should be eating lunch but batshit crazy Not Marta.
This can’t be good
We cut to John Ross getting a call from Elena’s phone, but not from Elena. It seems that Not Marta has Elena and wants John Ross to come to some hotel room if he wants her back alive. He hurries to the hotel room and finds Not Marta, but Elena isn’t there. He looks everywhere for her and realizes that Not Marta just stole Elena’s phone. She said that it was the only way to get him there. She wants his help because the Mexican drug lord’s thugs are after her. He realizes that she is recording the whole encounter and tells her she is crazy. She attacks him and scratches his neck in the process. He makes a point of repeatedly touching the scrapes, so I’m guessing this will come into play later. As he is getting in the elevator, Mexican drug lord’s thugs come out of the stairwell and head towards Not Marta’s room.
As John Ross exits the hotel, there is quite the commotion going on. What could possible have everyone’s attention?
That is one dead, crazy bitch
