LOS ANGELES, February 18, 2013 — Monday night brings the second to last episode ever of “Dallas” with J.R. Ewing. Thankfully for television fans everywhere, Larry Hagman filmed six episodes of the second season of the relaunched Dallas before he passed away. Now we have Episode 5.
Episode 4 brought pain for the Ewing family and their rivals from beginning to end. Bobby Ewing tried to take the blame for his wife Annie when she shot her ex-husband Harris Ryland. In the end Annie told police the truth. Yet when Harris woke up in the hospital, he told police that Bobby shot him.
Elena and Christopher faced external threats everywhere as John Ross and Pamela plotted against them and Elena’s brother was up to no good. John Ross bribed a foreman to sabotage a job that was important to Elena.
The biggest plotline involved the body of Tommy Sutter, who Pamela shot in self defense. JR convinced Frank Ashkani to dig up the body with the intention of making sure Pamela got properly blamed. Yet John Ross began developing feelings for Pamela, so he betrayed his own father and told Cliff Barnes what JR and Frank were up to. Cliff made sure that Frank was arrested instead of Pamela. Cliff visited Frank in jail and told him to do the “right” thing. Frank got the message and lied to the judge, taking the blame for killing Tommy and exonerating Pamela. During the chaos that ensued, Frank too a cyanide pill and killed himself in the courtroom.
Now we see how an angry JR reacts when he finds out his own son has double crossed him.
