Synopsis:

Season 2 opens with Christopher and John Ross dueling over the vision for Ewing Energies. Meanwhile, Christopher seeks a divorce from Rebecca as a revelation upends the whole family; John Ross launches a scheme of revenge; Ann is blackmailed by her former husband.

A battle for the control of Ewing Energies rages; Elena tries to gain prominence in the company; John Ross schemes with Pamela Rebecca Barnes to seize Christopher's company shares.

RIP Larry Hagman

If you aren't aware, he reportedly filmed 6 episodes before he died last year.

If your wondering how JR will be written out:

He will be murdered.



FYI, It was reported that Ted Shackleford and Joan Van Ark will appear in season 2 at some point.

Can't wait. Although rough around the edges, I enjoyed last season. And I wanna see Larry Hagman's last episodes.

I would have rather they left Valene in California. It's fair to say that JVA has had some work done.

I've liked the continuation so far
I've also just started getting the dvds of the original through netflix. I vaguely remember some of the last few seasons since my parents watched it when I was a kid so I figured I'd go through the whole series

It's funny you should mention that. I was watching the Primetime Soaps episode of the latest PBS docu-series Pioneers of Television (check it out if you haven't already!), and was quite shocked to see how tight her face was. The same goes for all the leading ladies from Knots, Dallas, and Dynasty. Quite startling/funny.

Watching the premiere of Dallas now.

Nice little introduction at the beginning from Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray talking about Hagman.

Good 1st hour. Everything you could ask for in an episode of Dallas.

Just realized the girl who played Ann's daughter was the girlfriend on Final Destination 5 and also played Andrea's sister on The Walking Dead. Man she was cold to her mother. Ryland must have said some shit about Ann to her.

the twist at the end was great with John Ross stealing away the real Rebecca.

I don't know how Sue Ellen can get out of blackmail allegations (especially when they are 100% true. )

Does anyone find the scar on Julie Gonzalo's face a little distracting?

Will have to watch hour 2 tomorrow after work.

I don't think there is any blood ties right?

No blood ties. Cousins in name only. Chris was adopted.

It was no surprise who Christopher's wife really is. I hope Cliff starts making more appearances, and I hope they explain why Christopher never knew his cousin, Pamela, until now. If Cliff only recently learned her had a daughter, that would explain it but it wouldn't explain why she would go to such extremes for a father she barely knew. Did he know about her for years but keep her a secret from Bobby and Christopher? Why would he do that? When the original show ended, Bobby and Cliff were friends, and Cliff had a relationship with his nephew, so it doesn't make sense that he would keep his daughter a secret from them.

The scenes for the rest of the season showed the guy who had Marta Del Sol killed coming back. This is pure speculation: maybe he puts a hit on J.R. and that's how J.R. dies.

Is Anne's daughter going to be an ongoing cast member?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Judith Light is playing Mitch Pileggi's MOTHER?! She's THREE years older than him, for cryin' out loud!

Anyway, I thought it was a decent two episodes. As was the case last season, Hagman's scenes are by far the best (I'm not sure DALLAS can survive without him...we'll see). Josh Henderson has improved leaps and bounds over last season's work...looks like Larry was able to pass along some good acting advice. The same can't be said of the other younger actors.

That was the very first thing I was going to say here. That made no sense. They look the same age. I like Judith Light, but they could have done a better casting job there.

But some good classic Dallas backstabbing going on.

JR: I'm one for one with flushing out Pamela's. I plan to be two for two.

Judith Light as Mitch Pileggi's mother??? Lmao!!! That was probably the most hilarious casting decision I have ever seen on a TV show.

Hour 2 was great. Lots of backstabbing. JR was the highlight of hour 2 at how he managed to find some dirt on that State Attorney.

You know Pamela looks pretty good for someone who is supposedly pregnant with twins. How much time has transpired since last season? I assume not very much if Pam isn't even showing yet.
