So it’s been three episodes since I posted about “Dallas” . . . Sorry! Sometimes when I don’t feel like I have enough to post about in one episode other than a recap, I wait till the next, then I get busy, and things snowball. Obviously I can’t touch on every little thing, plus I can’t remember every little thing, so I’ll just touch on some stories I recall and have been pondering.
Even thought everyone knew some kind of fraud had taken place with the sale of Southfork, even the authorities were at a loss to find a way to block it. This is the one storyline that had been eating away at me! Thought JR gained control of the land, Bobby and Christopher found a way to block the drilling rights thanks to a guilt ridden Rebecca who was trying to make things up to Christopher. She and her brother had learned (in their scammer research) that long ago the deeds between the land and oil drilling rights had been separated . . . Basically they need a majority vote by all the Ewing kids to drill, or they can’t. Right now John Ross is trying to get them from the estranged family members/siblings.
There is, however, a glimmer of hope for Bobby and Christopher. The latest episode had John Ross going nuts over Marta’s betrayal of him. He went to the men who JR used to funnel Southfork to him . . . who are predictably threatening to take it since there seems to be no oil money coming their way. He talked to them about how Marta betrayed them both, and was a problem he needed gone to get things moving again. Next we knew it, Marta was dead and unfortunately John Ross is the prime suspect! My guess is John Ross isn’t going to go down for something he didn’t do, even if he has to offer J.R. and the truth about who Marta really was up. Oh and I think the news of “Marta’s” death would make papers, and people would find out who she really was anyways. That could, unfortunately, be good for Bobby but even worse for John Ross.
Rebecca has been trying to make things up to Christopher, but he won’t have it. Who will however is Ann, and she’s become even more of a Rebecca defender after it came out that she was pregnant. Christopher wanted a paternity test done, and it came out that Rebecca was pregnant with twins! Oh no, I hope they aren’t gonna pull a “Days of Our Lives/Sami” on us!
Meanwhile over the past few weeks we’ve met Ann’s ex-husband, and it’s clear it was not the best marriage. Clearly this is why she’s had a soft spot for Rebecca. Her ex sent her some locket which sent her over the edge, and we finally learned the “not so shocking” secret that they had a kid. What happened to the kid? Well I’m going to guess it may be Christopher . . . why else have they been talking so much about his adoption these past few weeks?
Last, but not least, Elena proved she was no dummy in this last episode. She knew why Christopher pushed her away with his hurtful words, he was trying to be a good husband. He know what Elena back, but she feels he needs to be there for his pregnant wife. Hopefully Elena will at least learn what a jerk John Ross really is before she ends up supporting him anymore.
