The last episode of TNT’s “Dallas” brought J.R.’s nemesis Cliff Barnes back to Southfork. When he learned that Bobby was planning to sell, he wanted to make an offer, as he’s always felt swindled out of it. Over the course of the episode Cliff’s sister, Bobby’s ex-wife and Christopher’s adopted mother Pam was brought up umpteen times. It begs the question, what happened to her? Where did she go? Might we see her return, even if briefly? Reports are circulating that the actress Victoria Principal apparently doesn’t want to return, which is why Bobby has a new wife. Given how much they’ve talked about her and whatever happened to her, I think we’ll see her back.
J.R. confronted John Ross about his double cross, and forgave him . . . this one time. They agreed to work together to get Southfork back, but I still don’t trust John Ross not to try and double cross his dad again. Bobby was on-again-off-again with the selling of the ranch. At first he decided not to, but by the end of the show when John Ross blackmailed him with some awful secrets from his mother’s past, he sold it.
J.R. and John Ross have some deal with a group of Venezuelans. Bobby is unknowingly selling them the ranch, and then they will sell it to J.R. in exchange for some oil deal. Later the family lawyer upped his blackmail, now wanting 5 million dollars . . . otherwise Bobby would be told the truth and John Ross and J.R. would go to jail for fraud. I’m glad someone finally brought this up. The entire show I sat there thinking “couldn’t this entire deal be taken to court for fraud when the truth comes out?” However I think J.R. and John Ross will probably find themselves double crossed by the Venezuelans. I bet they will refuse to sell once they have the ranch.
Finally John Ross learned who sent Elena the email from Christopher breaking things off, it was his new wife Rebecca! It seems Rebecca and her brother have been plotting their owns scheme for a very very long time! I have to wonder though, are they really siblings?
