I hope that helps.
You're right. The bezel was on really tight, but managed to pry it off, which exposed the two set screws which released the part that slips over the splined shaft. This one threw me because I've used the GM door tool before to slip behind the bezel on other cars and push out the spring clip to release the handle, but this one wouldn't allow any room to push the door panel away from the handle bezel to slip the tool in. Now I can get inside the door to see why the outer handle doesn't open the door. I'm thinking that the return spring is either broken or has fallen off, I'll soon see. Thanks again, guys!
