  • J.R. and Cliff bicker over the body found in the Ewing pool. Meanwhile, J.R. is concerned over the whereabouts of his son, who he believes was kidnapped from Southfork by Pam.moreless

    It comes as no surprise which character ends up in the pool in this season opener, but it was an effective, innovative, cliffhanger nonetheless. The rest of the episode is full of classic "Dallas" drama, especially as J.R. tries to retrieve his son from the Southern Cross Ranch.This struggle over John Ross would fuel many of the upcoming episodes. Unfortunately, the writers let J.R. off the hook too easily and unbelieveably over Kristin's death, especially when it is revealed at the end of this episode that police knew she she was the one who shot him. This aspect was a missed opportunity, but is brushed aside rather quickly. Most of this installment is filmed in Texas and feels different than mid-season episodes because of it.moreless
