Falcon Crest: Power Play

When the custody case goes to court, Melissa and Lance resort to blackmail. Lance goads Cole to hit him in front of a witness and then shows up in court badly beaten up. Linda and Cole loose the case after the blackmailed witness gives their account of what happened. Chase and Maggie work out that his mother's relationship with Johann Riebmann and Henri Denault made her a war criminal. Maggie decides not to have the story reported in the newspaper but Emma goes behind everyone's backs and has it printed on the front page. When the Cartel aren't happy about the story being printed, Richard feels he will be eliminated.
