Predictions on who killed J.R. Ewing: Place your "Dallas" Bets!

MADISON, WISCONSIN, April 13, 2013—The “Dallas” finale is here. So whodunit?
In 1980, the mystery of “Who shot J.R.” was the most watched program in television history at that time. His sister-in-law Kristin Shephard was the trigger woman. J.R. was shot or almost shot several times over the decades, but several weeks ago on Dallas he was shot and killed for good.
Actor Larry Hagman departed for the big oilrig in the sky, so J.R. had to join him.
J.R.’s television family members identified the body and held a very poignant funeral. In the season upcoming season finale we learn who killed him, or will we.
In 1980 the entire cast was kept in the dark, not knowing until the episode aired, and they did not reveal the killer until the premier of the following season, guaranteeing a huge viewing audience.
This year Patrick Duffy is the only cast member to know the truth. Even Linda Gray did not know until she saw the final script.
The only thing Duffy has said is that his character Bobby Ewing did not do it.
So who did it? Who killed J.R.?
Let’s have some fun and let the guessing games begin before the Season 2 finale of the relaunched Dallas.
In addition to Bobby and Sue Ellen, their sons Christopher and John Ross are innocent unless the producers can suspend time and space. John Ross was on the phone with J.R. when the shooting happened and he immediately alerted the others.
Eliminate Cliff Barnes and Harris Ryland. That would be a boring ending. They hated J.R. and are thrilled he is dead, but they would rather make him suffer than just kill him.
Venezuelan thugs seeking revenge for Vincent Cano or Mexican gangsters working for Carlos Del Sol did not kill J.R. A business deal gone badly is a cop-out. The producers want to get this right.
Here in order is who may have shot him.
1.) Pamela Rebecca Barnes. This would be perfect. The daughter of Cliff, soon-to-be ex-wife of Christopher, and wife of John Ross fit best. She already killed Tommy Sutter in self-defense. J.R. tried to destroy her but got Frank Ashkani killed instead.
Although she has now turned on Cliff, at the time she wanted to make her dad proud.
