DALLAS Season Three Spoilers! Sue Ellen Back To The Bottle And More!

Courtesy/TNT

Season three of TNT’s Dallas doesn’t debut until February 24th of 2014, but TV Guide has already gotten their hands on some quite intriguing spoilers and previews about what is in store for the feuding folks in and around Southfork!

First of note, according to TVG: “Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) discovers John Ross (Josh Henderson) has been unfaithful, sparking memories of J.R.’s cheating ways and leading her back to the bottle. Despite initial concerns about a relapse plot, Gray ‘is into it,”‘ says Cidre, who teases that Sue Ellen’s struggle will climax in a midseason cliffhanger similar to one of the original series’ memorable season enders.”

Some others that perked our interest included:  “Expect a pregnancy, a shooting, a death and another Southfork wedding, which will feature the return of Lucy Charlene Tilton Ray (Steve Kanaly) and Afton (Audrey Landers)”  And, “Bobby (Patrick Duffy) and Ann (Brenda Strong) will see their marriage tested, which could lead him to stray, either with a familiar face from the past (Priscilla Presley’s Jenna Wade?) or a lovely newcomer. “

So what do you think of Sue Ellen back to the bottle?   Who will Bobby potentially stray from Ann with?  Let us know your thoughts!

I would love for them to bring back Morgan Brittany! I was curious about how did Cliff have Katherine’s jewelry to give to his daughter? If memory serves me, Katherine was not a fan of her long lost siblings.

I’m not surprised that they decided to have Sue Ellen going back to the bottle. I just hope she can overcome it at some point again. As for Bobby being unfaithful I’m not happy about that but if they have to have it happen then please NOT with Jenna Wade. I never liked that character.

Linda Gray plays a drunk like nobody’s business! The way she slurs and staggers and spits her lines with venom…she plays it to the hilt. The other actress who plays an awesome lush is Melody Thomas scott. As Nikki on Y and R. I am far too young to remember but my mom said that he gal who played Pat Randolph on Another World also played drunk very well. I certainly don’t promote alcoholism…but his is entertainment…and when Sue Ellen falls off he wagon…it is top notch drama because anything can happen. So in this case I say bring on… Read more »

Johnny…bro…HELL YEAH!!!!! I think that Sue Ellen is EVEN MORE ENTERTAINING whenever she falls off the wagon…LOL!!!!! Back in the day (in the early 1980’s), remember when Sue Ellen confronted J.R. about his affair with that devious hussy-like Holly Harwood? D-A-M-N!!!!! Then, soon after that, along came that shocking-ass fire at Southfork. AW, man…those were the days of television!!!!! Yep.

Take care, Johnny. Peace.

Very much looking forward to season three. Would be great to see either Jenna Wade or Katherine Wentworth back (but didn’t Katherine die??)…or was that only in the “dream” season? Or was the last time we saw Katherine when she tried to kill Bobbie in the hospital and got caught and hauled off to jail? I forget.

Bobby and Sue Ellen would make an interesting pairing. They’ve always had a unique chemistry.

Katherine was last spotted at pam’s bedside and helped hee escape from the hospital. Then we never saw her again. She died but it was part of the dream season.

I have to say I was really mad at the ending of season 2. I thought John Ross and Pamela made a hell of a team and I liked them together! Then he goes off and cheats with that dopey blond daughter of Anne’s – who’s name I can’t even remember! I get that they want to ‘make John Ross like JR’. But JR cheated because Sue Ellen just wasn’t his match. Pamela made a great match for John Ross. They could have been hell on wheels together! Well, that’s all water under the bridge now. I still look forward… Read more »

I liked Bobby and Jenna. Maybe we’ll get to see Lucas.

As for Sue Ellen, when has she been sober? I must have missed that episode.

Looking forward to more new Dallas! 🙂

Yes Katherine died in the dream season and came back for a few episodes after Pam’s accident. Bobby stated she was dead in season 2 of TNT when Christopher was about to go to Europe to track down Pam. But then again Cliff made them think Pam was alive all those years so maybe he lied about Katherine being dead too. Who knows??!!!

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.
