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.

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.
