    Not a bad episode, I do not want my 6 out of 10 to make people think I feel that way, but it's getting a bit stale, and that is never a good sign so early in the run. We need something fresh to these battles, not just fighting over South Fork each and every show. It's fun to watch, but nothing really stood out tonight for me.

    I think it was a hell of a lot better episode than the last week's one. I loved how JR got them all again. And it was certainly unexpected that Christopher found Marta's hotel room and bribed one of the bellboys to get into it. It was good that he didn't show Elena the CD with John Ross and Marta del Sol havin' sex especially now when Elena seems to trust John Ross and is so close to him. It was also surprisingly juicy to see Rebecca and Tommy being kicked off Southfork. But I must admit that I felt kinda bad for her, at least Ann was kind enough to meet up with her and hear her out. Definitely think Christopher will give a second chance but she'll have to earn his trust back.



    One of my most favorite scenes in the new Dallas is the one with Ann and her ex-husband Harris Ryland where she asks him a favor. That was some excellent acting. Exactly the reason why I love Brenda Strong. ''Bobby was always a fool'' - that priceless JR's line sums it up perfectly. I never liked the character. Ugh. Don't even get me started. Really hope John Ross kicks his sorry ass out on the street now when he's in charge (wonder when is JR coming back from his trip). The cliffhanger wasn't as juicy as I expected but I'm still curious what John Ross'reaction will be - is he gonna betray his papa to save himself?moreless

    • Ann: (to J.R., after finding out he tricked Bobby into selling him Southfork) They warned me. My whole marriage they told me about you. But in my wildest imagination I never thought you could stoop to this.
      J.R.: Well Annie, you're just gonna have to work on your imagination.
