TNT’s Dallas season three two-hour season finale has now aired on all time zones, and we will give you a recap of the big storylines and cliffhangers in a post tomorrow morning to get your feedback on that!

SPOILER Alert forthcoming!  Don’t read on if you have not seen the season three finale, but plan to watch!

Following the conclusion of the West Coast airing tonight, Dallas star Jesse Metcalfe (Christopher) sent out a heartfelt tweet to his followers, fans, and colleagues.  As had been promoted in the series promos and hashtag leading up to the finale that “One Ewing will die!”, it certainly came true! In the final moments of the show, Christopher perished when the car he was in waiting for Elena in, blew up thanks to a bomb! It was curtains for good guy Christopher!

With that, Metcalfe, the former Passions star, tweeted “What a finale!!! I want to thank everyone who’s supported me over the years and all the incredibly loyal @Dallas_TNT fans. You’re the best! #Ripchristopher”

So what did you think of the ending of Dallas tonight and the sudden death of Christopher? Did you think he would be the Ewing to be killed-off?   Weigh-in below!

I thought maybe he didn,t go out to the car and hoped he wasn’t,t in there. Why did he leave the show? I was a big fan of the original show years ago ,but this new Dallas is just as intense and more with the story lines .I hope there is another season, I love this show

I hate that they killed him off the show i thought for sure it was gonna be John Ross. And that he has a sister he has to find and that Elena is with child and dont know who the dad is, its gonna be a damn good show if it comes back on the air which i think it should.

I’m not convinced! I think it was someone else getting in the car and in the season 4 premier, Christopher will run out of the store. It will be played out as if it was a car thief or something like that. It was just too suspicious how they did not show his face while he was walking toward the car parked away from the store. It was also sort of dark where the car was parked. Christopher is too much of an important character to be killed off….

I really hope this is like the episode where Bobby died. So many fans were upset that they brought him back and had his death be a dream.

I think too many people will be upset that anyone had to die, They are all too good and have major storylines! I was hoping for Elena and Christopher to get back together.

Also, didn’t JR sleep with Sue Ellen’s sister, Kristen? Perhaps she had a baby before she was killed off.

Cindy

Totally and completely agree with your response. It’s exactly what I thought. HOPE we’re right!

I don’t believe he’s dead either. I predict someone else was in the car and Christopher will wind up alive.

Ken
Guest

I agree. It was too ambiguous. If they wanted it to be conclusive, they would have made it conclusive. Also, in the scene just before the explosion, Christopher is wearing a checkered shirt. The guy getting into the car appears to be wearing a solid shirt. Rewatched a few times just to be sure.

Gregg
Guest
Gregg

TONY: Have you seen the show? Nicholas ordered/arranged the explosion because he wanted Chris out of the way. He could see that Chris was ready to get involved with Elena again and he wants her for himself. If you want a realistic prediction, despite the number of times he and Elena did the nasty, it’s gonna be that one night with J-R that got her preggers. Just wait for the DNA test next season. If there is one.

Kathy

Sue Ellen’s sister did have a child. That child was Christopher who Bobby and his first wife Pam adopted.

Krissy

I’m also not sure he was in the car. It would be out of character for Christopher to leave the store without Elena. He’s too much of a gentleman! I hope he’s not off the show!

Michael

I believe there will be a similar car in the parking lot. Remember Elaina was a little dazed coming out. I think she was maybe walking to the wrong car. He will come running up to her and ask if she is alright.

Bobby

Bobby

I agree and I’ve watched a few times and after it shows Ellena walking out to the car you hear a door close, I’m assuming that was Christopher getting out of the car to go get Ellena,

Dennis
Guest

No, Christopher should not have perished. I was tired of the cartel story line. In the original series, not one of the cast was killed, except for Pamela, & she returned later. So, as for me, I will no longer support the series. Dumb move on the writers part IMHO.

Worst ending ever! Bad move…Bobby will be so devastated he’ll barely function, leaving bad boy John Ross to rule the roost along with his newly discovered sister, who I assume is JR and Callie’s offspring. This has ruined the whole Dallas saga and I think it will lose a lot of viewers – I’m not sure I want to watch any more.

Remember, Bobby had a biological son with Jenna Wade named Lucas. JR had several chances to have children with Angelica Nero and Mandy Winger who got a big time modeling job in Switzerland supposedly (she probably was pregnant).

Christian

YES, JR and Calle had a son. But I disagree. Next season will bring in a new rivalry. Christopher was rather boring and really didn’t have have that much of a solid storyline since Bobby basically held him incheck and John Ross ended up stealing his thunder. BRING ON SEASON 5, CAN’T WAIT!

This season was 15 episodes. They just stopped airing during the summer. If you look on TNTdrama.com under Dallas, you’ll verify this. A lot of people vacation during the summer. I don’t like it either and I wish they’d bring back the old scheduling. Start in September and go through till the end of Spring.

That was a wrong move they made killing Christopher. Somebody have to be cool and calm in a family. what are they going to have, a bunch of ruthless people and no nice people?
They better read what the fans are saying. BRING CHRISTOPHER BACK!

From what I have read, it sounds to me like the show wanted to kill off the character. It’s common to say they wanted to pursue other projects, but I don’t think it was the actor’s choice to leave.

OMG! I can’t believe the writers killed off Christopher’s character. I have been a Dallas fan for so many years and still watch the original Dallas over and over again. I thought John Ross and Christopher would be JR and Bobby all over again for many seasons to come. I am so shocked and disappointed he is Bobby’s only son. How could the writers kill him off, why not Nicolas or Emma someone that was not that important from the original Dallas? Jesse Metcalfe did a wonderful job with the character. I will miss him dearly and I am so… Read more »

I can’t believe he died. They needed a man that had a good heart, compassion and sensitivity to all the Hell bound family. They needed him to break up the monotony of being bad. Now it has no “Mr. Goody Two Shoes” I have been watching it since I was 16. To have a mixture of both traits made it exciting. He was a great guy. Stood up for himself! Being good isn’t a gift it is having a good heart like him. Good Luck Christopher Ewing! Ur parents raised u right!

mml
Guest

I think they will have another character play christopher. He will have been burned and it will explain why another actor portrays his character. Jesse Metcalfe must’ve wanted to leave so this is the way they will explain another actor playing his part. Hope I’m right.

I was blown away by the season finale of Dallas (TNT). I had no idea it would be “Christopher Ewing” to be the one to die, nor do I recall reading that Jesse Metcalfe was leaving the tv series and why would he? At this point I don’t believe “Christopher” is dead. Christopher did say he would take care of everything. So maybe they did a switcheroo. They changed cars? A decoy looking like Christopher went into the car? Christopher is actually behind the building waiting in a new car? Just guessing.

Bryon
Guest
Bryon

Hmm, interesting theory, I like your logic. I’m hoping the same thing, he was a main character and I was blown away at the season finale as well. I don’t remember them showing his face, I do remember seeing the back, so this could very well be a twist. WOW, I wasn’t expecting him, but knew they weren’t going to kill off John Ross. I’m curious to see who the new Ewing sister will be, and who’s her mother. I like how they are continuing to honor J.R. Ewing after the death of Larry Hagman.

I have to agree don’t believe they killed him off he’s a main character.

Did the license plates say Ewing on them? I think he was still in the store…I hope anyway. Elena and Christopher belong together. I think Jesse’s tweet was just to throw us off!

Mary
Guest

That is an excellent idea. He did say he would take care of everything. Maybe he did set up that decoy so he could get Elena out safely but would he have had time to do that?
I sure hope Dallas pulled a fast one on us because all will be forgiven if Christopher did NOT get killed off!!!!!!!

They guy going into the car doesn’t appear to be wearing the same shirt Christopher was shown wearing as he spoke with Elena from outside the bathroom door. Just sayin’.

Just like his mom (Pam) when she had the accident. And, went under the semi. The car blew up. Same thing. But, this time he will survive it. After, treatments. I don’t know why this would happen. If it does. And, he dies. He’s gone to be with his mothers Kristen Sheppard and Pamela Barnes Ewing

If it’s true, it’s a gutsy move. Truly, all we saw was a shadowy figure get into the car that we thought was Christopher. It could have been someone else. I think they kept it purposely vague in waiting to see if the show would be renewed for another season. I hope it is renewed!

Wasn’t the Christopher vs John Ross conflict a central theme behind the reboot? This Dallas isn’t nearly as much fun as the original. Too much business, too many double crosses, too, too complicated. Give me the Ewing barbecue, the Oil Barron’s Ball and a couple of women who hate each other and meet in front of the ladies room mirror all dressed up.

I agree,. Original Dallas much better. This reboot was ok for a while but the story lines have gotten bizarre…away from oil or cattle and into drugs. There never was so much murder in the originals. I agree…give me a good dunking in the pool at the bbq and back talking at the oil barron’s ball. Not looking forward to next season whenever that is.

Sue

Totally agree. The original Dallas was fun, not so dark. I am watching the originals on DVD and the fashions are fun to look back on. I doubt we would look back at this new series like we do the original and laugh about the clothes etc. I think to be a true reboot there should be more story lines that involve past characters. It just doesn’t feel right. Watching the originals makes you feel like you are back home. This new one has too much Mexican influence, drugs and violence. There are no happy scenes….Give me the bbq and… Read more »

I agree. Nothing beats the original Dallas, and the biggest thrill I get from the show is from the opening title and music. JR used to produce the same thrill, but RIP. As for the car explosion, I’m torn: conventional wisdom says it’s a cliffhanger ploy and the title character will be back. Also, it’s hard for Hollywood to keep a secret, and killing off his character would’ve leaked out while auditioning for other roles. On the other hand, this new Dallas was about the good and evil of two generations: JR/Bobby and John Ross/Christopher. He’s death was unexpected and… Read more »

How can they kill Christopher? It would not be Dallas if two Ewing offspring, John Ross and Christopher, were not there to play off each other–good vs. evil. The original Dallas would have never lasted 10+ years without JR vs. Bobby! I hope Cynthia knows this and fixes it before they return.

Anybody else feel the same?

Absolutely agree the whole point is the next generation of Ewing vs. Ewing Now what? Sorry to say but I think it should’ve been a Ewing who isn’t as important such as Ann or Pamela No offense ladies but the show could go on without either of them. And their both very good actresses so they could find other work. I too watched the original Dallas and it was all about JR vs. Bobby and the love triangles. I was shocked and disappointed. However I hope there is a season 4 I will probably watch it to see what happens… Read more »

I agree, this was the central theme for the new show. I was anticipating another rivalary between John Ross and Christopher, similar to JR and Bobbby on the original series. I’m curious to see who’s the new Ewing sister?? I also hope they renew for a 4th season. If renewed, please do not have them airing on Monday nights. One of the reason for low ratings is that there’s too much competition. Have them air in the summer time, when there’s nothing on, not the Spring and Fall on the same night as “The Voice” and “Dancing with the Stars.”… Read more »

I would agree if there weren’t so many people gunning for John Ross right now–Bobby, Sue Ellen, Ryland, and Pamela– seems a bit of an over kill to throw Christopher into the mix. My hope is Christopher has gone to work undercover for the CIA to bring down the Mexican cartel now being run by Nicholas. Faking a death is something the CIA would do–and if this show lasts a recast Christopher could emerge maybe in season five—-but as to your point I think the original concept of the show was to pit cousin against cousin– but after’s JR death… Read more »

I was not pleased. I guess they had to do something if Metcalfe was leaving but I think they should have preserve the Christopher character by having him leave for a bit and come back as another handsome hunk. It’s not like Metcalfe was an actor that couldn’t be replaced like Larry Hagman,. Nobody could play JR! The conflict between John Ross and Christopher was as organic to the show as the conflict between JR and Bobby. I think they made a mistake but who cares what I think? I am just a lowly fan

I wonder was this season or series end. With the loss Christopher I cannot see there being another season. The three major actors in my opinion are Bobby, Christopher, and John Ross Jr. Being this is still fairly new compared to the original series. Although one can argue we lost jock, and the show went on.

I thought it was an odd death – in that, it was shot in a way that would leave one to believe they could get out of it (no closeups, no on screen last breath acting extravaganza), and yet, the way it was framed leaves little plausible chance that it wasn’t Christopher in the car. I guess if there was a death, I expected a Bobby-gets-hit-by-a-car kind of thing, not a could-have-been-an-extra getting in the car before it explodes kind of thing. For a major role on the show, it was one step removed from an off-screen death. And killing… Read more »

i am hoping that it will NOT be true. Christopher has repeated his mothers (almost) demise. I would have preferred Ann to be the one, (no offence to the actress). I don’t feel that Christopher was to correct choice. After following the original Dallas for all of the years it was on, and watching Bobby and JR play off of each other, I feel that this series needed Christopher and John Ross to do the same. VERY DISAPPOINTED . I will continue to watch it, but, will not be the same. They need to fix this.

Irene

Jesse Metcalfe wanted to leave the show, that’s why they did that. However, they still could have him just end up badly burned, then he would need facial reconstruction, and hire someone else to play Christopher, but I don’t think they are going to do that since they specifically said they were killing off one of the Ewing’s.

Irene

Also, I think that’s why they are going to find John Ross’s sister next season, and she will end up being his adversary.

Katrina
Guest

It was a toss between Christopher and Ann. Ann could have been lost in a rescue attempt because it was obvious that Bobby was going to choose Emma first. Once the writers had Elena and John Ross sleep together we knew there was a possibility for pregnancy which would require John Ross to survive the finale. That only left the Christopher character vulnerable.

Jesse Metcalfe wanted to leave the show to pursue other things. Plus, he didn’t have much going on this season.

Well I wasn’t surprise I thought it would be him because at the moment Christopher has outlived his usefulness as a character. There are enough characters going after John Ross– Bobby, Sue Ellen, Pamela and now Ryland, adding Christopher in there is redundant. I believe in season one the idea was the battle would between the two cousins, and Bobby wasn’t supposed to to be so front and center. But that changed and now it is more about Bobby vs John Ross, and Christopher was Bobby’s sidekick, but not the main opponent. Of course that doesn’t mean Christopher will stay… Read more »

I bet it was a car thief that got killed. Also, expect Elena to get an abortion or think about it. Of course J.R. has a daughter- didn’t he have one by Cally Harper?

I was thinking the same thing! They are negotiating a new salary with Jesse and did the car blow-up like his mother (and like Bobby came back) then when season 4 starts, he’s going to run out from the bathroom wondering why Ellena is screaming hysterically! LOL and it was a car thief. So Jesse I hope you get the pay raise you’re looking for as the show just wouldn’t be the same without one level headed person on their besides Bobby!

I was not expecting this, he is a good actor and they should have done something different. He could have gone somewhere else and then come back later, but once your dead your dead there is no coming back. Its going to be sad when it comes back on and Christopher is not there. So I think they could have done a better show.

ABC and PEOPLE’s ‘The Story of Soaps’: What Was Your Review Of It?

Tuesday’s night airing of ABC and PEOPLE’s two-hour special The Story of Soaps featured many notable daytime and primetime soap stars, past and present, clips from backstage to classic memorable moments, and some participants who were providing commentary on the erosion of the daytime soaps in our culture.  Still others, maintained and realized that everything today is serialized from the news we watch, to some of Netflix’s most binge-watchable series, and of course, the birth of reality-programming.

Throughout the airing of the special, The Story of Soaps was trending on Twitter and social media either at the #2, #3 or #4 spots for the entire duration of the broadcast presentation, and the cancelled and beloved All My Children was also at one point trending.

However, known soap writers, journalists, ardent fans, and actors of the genre, were all on Twitter last night live-tweeting their thoughts as the special went down, and there was definitely mixed reactions and reviews, when all was said and done.

What the special did not shy away from, but tackled, was Luke’s rape of Laura at the campus disco on General Hospital. and how that moment now, as Genie Francis (Laura), so eloquently put, would be considered as ‘date rape’ in our culture.  The series even included a pivotal moment where Laura addresses Luke (Tony Geary) about the rape years later, after helping Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) through her rape ordeal.

John Stamos (Ex-Blackie Parrish, GH) got a bevy of “Right On’s!” for his comment that the soaps do not get the credit that they deserve and clearly came through as one of the soaps greatest supporters, as did former The Doctors and Knots Landing star, Alec Baldwin.

However, throughout the two-hours, Andy Cohen’s commentary was thread throughout; mostly citing soap’s demise and the creation of reality-programming and his “Real Housewives” franchise, that the special touted as the new soap operas.  It continued on the narrative that people preferred to see real-life drama then made-up drama on a fictional soap.  And while, that has been a trend in American culture for decades, the commentary came off as often out of place in a celebration of the soaps; and bringing in a lot of negativity to the special that soap fans were tired of hearing.

In a lighting rod moment, Cohen stated: “I know Susan Lucci doesn’t agree with me, but I think that the Housewives have replaced soap operas because truth is stranger than fiction. Soaps became kind of unnecessary because you could do it with real people, and they’re writing the drama themselves.”

The special did also address the cancellations of All My Children and One Life to Live, (which many were not sure they were going to do – given this special was airing on ABC), where One Life’s leading lady and six-time Daytime Emmy winner, Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki) said what we all wanted to sa ywhen the ax fell on the towns of Llanview and Pine Valley, “People were horrified”.

Clearly, OJ Simpson and his murder trial and reality-programming were also given a chunk of time to show where the once mighty landscape of daytime soaps which once had 13 shows on the air, dwindled town to 4.  But, it would have been nice to see more time spent on how in this day and age, the people in this current landscape of the genre work so hard to get episodes done at an unbelievable pace, and how in that climate the performers still deliver gut-wrenching performances.

Former Loving, OLTL and Breaking Bad star, Bryan Cranston, did point out how the once powerful soaps, just don’t have the dollars they used to, and need to, to help with production costs and their taping schedule.

Viewers were reminded of soaps’ socially relevant storylines including hankie-inducing moments from: Robin (Kimberly McCullough) and Stone’s (Michael Sutton) HIV/AIDS storyline on General Hospital, to Billy Douglas being a gay teen coming out on One Life to Live, played by a young Ryan Phillippe.

There also did not seem time spent on the contributions of William J. Bell; one of the most prominent writers of the soap genre of all-time.

For many commenting on social media last night, there seemed to be a feeling of some glaring omissions of participants who could speak on this genre, who have been in the trenches as soap producers, soap writers, pundits, actors, and more, who were not included in the special.

So, what was your review of The Story of Soaps? How would you grade it? Do you feel it accurately reflected the history of the genre?  Were you happily surprised,  or when it came to the end where you over it, or somewhere in between? Sound off in the comment section below.  Below are some tweets from notables who have worked as an actor, a writer, and a journalist in the soaps.
