Dallas Season Finale: Revelation

I did not see that coming, that’s what cliff hangers are great and scripted shows are back. Dallas fans are happy to see the last final episode of the Dallas and the Ewings family is a family drama. I have been watching  the series ever since it premier in June 2012.

Last week, episode was a shocker. Tommy was dead.  Who shot him? Rebecca did, almost like a who shot J.R. moment. Tommy wanted control over Christopher’s Ewings Energies project, but Rebecca was already married to Christopher, and she did not want to ruin the marriage. So Tommy struggle with Rebecca in her apartment, he pushed her to the bed and strangles her. She reached for the lamp and smashed it on his head. He falls off the bed, and Rebecca rushes to the table where her purse was and dumps the content on the table, and the gun drops out. She picks it up, and Tommy sees the gun. So he rushes to her and then a shot gun sounded. Tommy falls to the floor. He was dead.  She was in shock that she killed Tommy. So she dials someone to take care of the body, they came and put the body on the rug and rolled the dead body of Tommy dumped him in the cart. They clean the blood off the floor and other stuff that he touched.

Bobby was incapacitated by a cerebral Aneurysm and is now out of surgery, his vitals are stable but he hasn’t woken up yet and will need a full neurological exam to find out if he really is going to be ok.

J.R. visits Bobby and tells him to keep fighting, he goes on to say that he loves him and doesn’t know what he would do without him.

John Ross gets a phone call regarding the methane extraction testing from Vincente’s man; he wants to speak to Christopher.

Rebecca visits Christopher in the hospital and he notices bruises on her, she confesses that she had a fight with Tommy, but he is gone. Rebecca notices that Christopher has his ring back on, he tells her that he would really like if she did the same.

Christopher approaches John Ross and tells him that he wants his P.I. to find out if Tommy is still in Dallas.

Rebecca is in Tommy’s bedroom, she is scrambling to find the rings but can’t find them, so she calls the person that took Tommy’s body away and tells them that she needs to find something that he may have with him.

Bobby is awake and starts joking with Christopher and Ann. Meanwhile, Rebecca is in the back of a van with Tommy’s body, she finds a receipt in his pocket, he pawned her rings.

John Ross surprises Elena and takes her to an empty building, he tells her that it is the new home to Ewing Energies and looks forward to surprising Christopher. Then, John Ross pulls a ring out of his pocket, he gets down on one knee and proposes to Elena.

Rebecca is at the pawn shop, she bribes the store owner to try to get the rings back, he claims he sold them the day before.

Christopher arrives at the building, John Ross tells him it is the new home for Ewing Energies and a fresh start for the family. The three go on to toast the exciting news and Christopher notices the ring on Elena’s finger, Christopher tries to look happy for Elena and Christopher.

Rebecca keeps playing the confrontation with Tommy over in her head when Christopher walks in to surprise her with Chinese food for dinner.

J.R. visits Bobby in the hospital who tells him that he couldn’t die because there is unfinished business between him and J.R. Bobby reveals that Lou got the video files of J.R. conspiring against him with Martha, he tells him to stop this for good.

Bobby is getting out of the hospital, Sue Ellen arrives at the hospital just when he leaves and tells Ann that she is out of the race, she can’t compromise her morals just to be Governor. Ann doesn’t want her to quit, she doesn’t want Harris to win.

Christopher and John Ross are enjoying a game of basketball when J.R. arrives, he forces John Ross’s hand to admit his involvement with Veronica aka Marta and trying to take down Southfork. John Ross says that he will confess to everything but he wants assurances that nobody will tell Elena. Unfortunately for John Ross, Elena was listening in and she is furious, she takes off John Ross’s ring while he begs her to meet him at the new Ewing Energies space the next day, she leaves.

Ann goes to visit Harris and tells him that he won and she knows that he is blackmailing Sue Ellen just to get back at her. Harris hits on Ann, basically he tells her that if she has sex with him he will drop everything but she has a wild card, she’s taped the whole conversation, tells him, then hits him right in the face. Later she visits Sue Ellen in the park and tells her she has the recording, Sue Ellen is safe and can stay in the race.

Federal agents make a little visit to Vincente’s and arrest him. At jail, Bobby tells Vincente that he has a signed confession from J.R. and John Ross, it invalidates any contract that Vincente had with the Ewings. Bobby goes on to tell him that they have evidence about his conspiracy and Veronica’s murder on her cloud drive that they were able to retrieve.

As Vincente leaves, Bobby tells J.R. that if he crosses him again, he will use the copy of the cloud drive he has and have him prosecuted, J.R. replies that he wouldn’t have it any other way.

At Southfork, Christopher tells John Ross that what he did is worse than what he could ever have expected. Bobby intervenes and tells the two to make the new business happen, put their differences behind them and bring some peace to the family.

The P.I. has found Tommy at a motel, he checked in two weeks ago and never checked out. While in the room, the phone rings, Christopher answers and the girl on the phone tells him it’s Rebecca, Tommy’s sister.

Chrisopther goes home to see Rebecca and tells her that he knows she is not the “real” Rebecca. Rebecca loses it and tells him that she is in love with him but she never had a chance with him because he is in love with Elena to which Christopher tells her that he is going to find out who she is and make sure she is arrested, then he is going to tell her babies what a lying piece of garbage she is.

No surprise, Christopher runs right to Elena and reminisces about when he fell in love with her. He goes on to tell her that he is finished with Rebecca, he will be a father to his children but he wants to marry Elena. He pulls her ring out of his pocket and hands it to her.

Sue Ellen is running for Governor while Elena’s mother meets John Ross at the new Ewing Energies building and hands him the ring he gave to Elena.

Rebecca has to explain to her father, Cliff Barnes, that she really screwed up. His men where the ones that got rid of Tommy’s body. Cliff tells her that she needs to go back in and get a piece of Ewing Energies and not lose focus again.

The season ends with John Ross alone with his dad in the empty building while Christopher and Elena make out. John Ross tells his father that when he takes Ewing Energies away from Christopher and Elena he is going to cut him in, but if he screws him, he will put him back in the home.

That’s it for the first season. My favorite was the ending, I loved John Ross’ final words to J.R.

Wait till January 2013 for the exciting conclusion of Dallas on TNT. I just wet my pants.

Dallas: A New Beginning

The drama is back in Dallas, and J.R. Ewing is always conniving evil to get back his land from his brother Bobby, remember like father and son. The sons of the two Christopher, Bobby’s adopted son and John Ross J.R. Ewing son. John Ross wants the land because it has oil, and John Ross wants the power of the oil and so do we. Have you seen the gas price around my town? A little higher than unexpected, but if we drill in our back yard and sell in theUSstates will it be cheaper?

This new “Dallas,'” dubbed a “sweeping family epic” and not a nighttime soap opera by its creators, introduces the next generation of theEwingclan and puts those characters alongside J.R., Bobby and Sue Ellen from the 1978-91 series. It picks up some 20 years later in the lives of the warring family members.

We last saw J.R. after he was losing Ewing oil to Cliff Barnes control of Southfork to Bobby, and being abandoned by his wife and children; a drunk and despondent J.R. begins walking around the ranch alone with a loaded gun wishing he had never been born. A gunshot is later fired in J.R.’s bedroom as Bobby returns to Southfork, and he rushes up to J.R.’s room and gasps, saying, “Oh, my God!” as the series ends. (Get the DVD of “Dallas”)

Two decades since viewers last saw them. The Ewings are back. Television’s first family of drama, sabotage, secrets and betrayal are gathering at Southfork Ranch for the upcoming wedding of Bobby’s adopted son, Christopher, to Rebecca Sutter. Although the occasion is joyous, an old family rivalry crosses generations after secret oil drilling on Southfork results in a major gusher. Everyone has his or her own agenda when the fight over oil and land threatens to tear the Ewings apart once again.

J.R.’s son, John Ross (played byHenderson), plots with his aging tycoon father to take over Southfork and drill for valuable oil on the property, for example. Meanwhile, Bobby’s adopted son, Christopher (Metcalfe), is trying to wean the family from crude and shift to Earth-friendly alternative fuel, with Bobby’s financial backing. Head butting and double crossing ensue.

Elena ( Jordana Brewster) the daughter of the Ewings’s cook  is now with John Ross, even though it’s clear she did have a romantic fling with Christopher before she met John Ross. So she’s with John Ross ( J. R. Ewing’s son).

Ann, (Brenda Strong), Bobby’s new wife. I like her. She’s a strong woman, and Bobby has chosen a good wife ever since Pamela left Bobby long ago in previous years and episodes ago.  During the first season of Dallas Pamela Barnes Ewing looked like Kim Kardashian when she was young. Do you think? Victoria Principal will not come back, but once the show progresses and becomes a hit some where down the future ofDallas, we will never know. But keep watching.

Rebecca ( Julie Gonzalo) is Christopher new wife, and they are getting married. During the wedding slash reunion, they were few cast members from the original show getting together. Lucy Ewing (Charlene Tilton) got older, and she will come back for a couple of episodes. Steve Kanaly (Ray Krebbs), Cliff Barnes (Kenny Kercheval) they will also come back for a couple of episodes too.

Here’s the family Tree link to get a better understand of the family drama.

If people think the plot or story is wrong for the newDallas, that’s what they do best. Back stabbing and black mailing that’s what they do best. Exciting drama.

It looks like Bobby want to steer away from the oil business and try alternative’s way to stay in the business tycoon – that’s good.

So far Dallas is holding up by it’s name. Watch Dallas on TNT on Wednesday night at nine pm.
