LOS ANGELES, April 1, 2013—Last week’s episode of “Dallas” featured heartbreak at the hospital. The episode’s emotional roller coaster led to a gut-wrenching conclusion.
The show’s main plotline continues to revolve around the mystery of who killed J.R. Ewing. Making things more complicated, J.R.’s longtime nemesis Cliff Barnes finally snapped, placing a bomb aboard a ship. The goal was to create minor damage and discredit Christopher Ewing’s alternative energy technology, devaluing Ewing Energies and allowing Barnes to finally destroy the Ewings. Cliff knew his daughter, pregnant with twins, was on the ship, but allowed the bomb go off anyway.
As a result, Pamela Rebecca Barnes lost both babies, or so it seemed as last week’s episode ended. Cliff had murdered his future grandchildren, willing and able to sacrifice the family line out of hatred for the Ewings. Executive producer Cynthia Cidre has stayed very true to the original series, and this incident repeats the anguish of the original Pamela Barnes Ewing miscarrying her baby.
Christopher and Elena are now free of Pamela, while John Ross still has not told her he loves her. John Ross did call her mother, Afton Cooper, who showed up at the hospital. In the original series, Afton had slept with J.R. and Cliff, fathering Pamela Rebecca with Cliff.
A lesser hospital-oriented plotline had Harris Ryland gain the upper hand in his struggle with his mother who had been hospitalized with a broken leg. After trying to double-cross Harris, he had her drugged and taken to a location that is not to her benefit.
Meanwhile, young Emma Ryland slept with Drew Ramos, not knowing he had been the one to set off the bomb, after having been told his sister Elena would be murdered if he did not comply.
Annie Ewing felt insecure when Bobby received information on the possible whereabouts of Christopher’s adoptive mother and Bobby’s first wife Pamela.
Sue Ellen charmed an old admirer on a regulatory board to reveal to her the truth about what was behind the shipboard explosion. As it turned out, Christopher’s technology was not faulty, and it did not cause the explosion, which was, of course, due to a bomb. Christopher and John Ross together figured out that Cliff Barnes was the culprit, and vowed to stop him from destroying the Ewings.
Cliff Barnes: A man willing to sacrifice his own family will stop at nothing. Welcome to Season 2, Episode 11 of Dallas at 9pm EST on TNT.
