After my rant on this season's inconsistencies, this episode addressed my concerns. April and Sue Ellen mentioned Pearce's death. Casey returning to Dallas surprised me. With Casey's quick exit the previous season, I thought he had been written out of the show.
J.R.'s seduction of Cally was enjoyable to watch. The scenes were brilliantly written and directed.
Besides the plot, the remainder of the episode slowly advanced the season's plot. I am puzzle what is the story with. Carter McKay. I am sure he will play a major role in this season.
