  • Alan is dating Lucy...Kristin tried to blackmail him...totally back fires...JR is thrilled and promises Alan untold riches if he marries Lucy and moves to Chicago. Something is definitely up with Pam, but we're not sure what yet.moreless

    I think the thing I love the most in this episode is Kristin's fall from power...not once but twice in this episode she manages to whine "...but J.R.!!!" as she is summarily dismissed and humiliated. Spectacular! So, missy decides that she is not being paid proper homage by Alan...he makes a crack about her being past her expiration date, she haughtily mocks him. Fast forward to the hooker/messenger that Alan sends to deliver documents to J.R. and Kristin is forced to spend the afternoon at her desk while JR plays hide the oil well with Serena (hooker/messenger). In the end, Kristin's attempt to get revenge ends up blowing up in her face as JR excitedly encourages Alan to marry Lucy...and get out of Dallas so that Gary and Valeen dont "...muscle in on his action..." what a classy way to refer to your inheritence and your parents legacy...You have to love this show! Thank God for NetFlix!moreless
