TNT DALLAS Recap: Sue Ellen Thinks She Burned Down Southfork …. But It Was Drew … Who Is Executed By Nicolas!


TNT’s Dallas returned last night with a burn your house down episode, literally!

As Southfork was engulfed in flames, Bobby (Patrick Duffy) and Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe) found Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) and Bo (Donny Boaz) in the rubble of the burning iconic home! Meanwhile, the paramedics came to save Pamela (Julie Gonzalo)who apparently attempted suicide, as the three-way broke up between Emma (Emma Bell), John Ross (Josh Henderson) and her in the hotel room.   Elsewhere, Elena (Jordana Brewster) and Nicolas (Juan Pablo Di Pace) are in bed (he tampered with her diaphragm and talked about having babies with her, and it looks as though they had sex once already!) when she gets a call from her mother Carmen that Southfork was set on fire.

When Heather (AnnaLynne McCord) shows up at the hospital post-fire, it seems she was very concerned for Bo, which caught the attention of Christopher.  And while all eyes suspected at first that Bo set fire to Southfork, he didn’t.  Sue Ellen thinks she did.  As she tries to fight her boozing demons while drying out in the hospital, she recalls as she is wandering through the hospital gift shop the invitation that upset her … that of John Ross’ marriage to Pamela that she began to burn before passing out!  Next, she steals some after-shave from the gift shop, which contain alcohol in it,  but doesn’t drink it.  She then admits to Bobby and Ann to being drunk and that she started the fire!  Sue Ellen admits she is an alcoholic.

But we soon learn the twist on a twist …  that it was none other than Drew (Kuno Becker) who started the fire and the Cartel and Nicolas have him detained so he won’t ruin their plans.  And after Nicolas is threatened by the Cartel if all their plans go up in smoke, Nicolas orders Drew to be killed.   Drew gets a bullet in the head!  Elena is also pissed at Nicolas when she realizes he was the one that sent the video to Pamela which showed Emma and John Ross having sex!

Judith Ryland, played by the superb Judith Light,  is on the warpath after seeing Ann (Brenda Strong) kiss Harris (Mitch Pileggi)!  She has some very terse words for Harris, and then goes to get Emma at the hospital.  But before she leaves, Judith makes sure Bobby knows exactly where Ann was during the fire … kissing Harris!  Bobby is furious and tells Ann he needs time alone because of all of her lies and asks her to leave!

John Ross admits to Pamela in the hospital that he does truly love her, but  she isn’t having it.  She tells him that whenever he makes love to another woman or Emma, he wants him to remember the sight of her overdosing!

What did you think of last night’s Dallas? Were you surprised to learn who started the fire?  Who was your favorite in the episode? We loved Judith Light, Josh Henderson, Linda Gray and Juan Pablo Di Pace.  How about you?  Let us know

Totally agree about Judith Light, Josh Henderson, Linda Gray and Juan Pablo Di Pace. The acting on Dallas is superb. The episode was excellent and the ending was a real surprise. TNT Dallas doesn’t disappoint.

Hope they get another season. There is still plenty of story to tell about the Ewings without J.R. I want to see how this family is going to fend off a Mexican drug cartel that’s intent on overthrowing the Mexican government! Talk about big stakes…

Great episode. Can’t wait fot next week.

I enjoyed the twist of Sue Ellen believing and confessing that she started the fire, then the discovery that it wasn’t her. Amazing cast. Amazing season premiere. Can’t wait for more!

Great episode last night. Looking forward to next Monday! The scene where (spoiler) Sue Ellen shoplifts and is about to guzzle a bottle of after shave was reminiscent of her time in rehab when she was pregnant and the nurse smuggled mouthwash for her to drink. I’m curious to see if Cliff will return to confront John Ross about Pamela’s overdose.

W-O-W!!!!! And…more and more, the F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S Judith Light is ROCKING AND ROLLING as the DELICIOUSLY EVIL Judith Ryland…H-O-L-L-A!!!!! In separate sorts of ways (or whatever), poor Harris and poor Ann…LOL!!!!!! Yep.

Until next time…A-C-E-S!!!!!

I really like this new Dallas, story wise it is great, the cast is wonderful, and production values are like a big budget movie. My only pet peeve about the show is the editing– it is so choppy in spots, all that zooming in and zooming out of the camera drives my nuts— all the quick shots during action scenes to make them feel more fast pace than there are– it looks like someone who just discover how to edit video is doing it, and they are throwing in everything because they can not because the scene needs it. It was mildly distracting in season one, but now in season three— it is just annoying.

It was a great show. Sad that TNT doesn’t promote this show at all. It would have better ratings if people knew it was on.

It’s promoted plenty. There have been ads in TVGuide & Entertainment Weekly for a month, and on their websites. Commercials have been running all summer during TNT’s highly-rated new show, THE LAST SHIP, plus on TNT’s sister stations.

I must have fast forwarded through them all.

I loved the show. I didn’t remember it was Drew who started the fire until I read it in the TNT Dallas Fan Club. I hope Pamela remains Angry with John Ross. I hope Bobby forgives Ann. Christopher should loose Heather as his Girlfriend. Can’t wait for next Monday!!

Joanne…I agree…Christopher needs to CUT ALL TIES with Heather. To me, that Heather chick has WAY TOO MUCH BAGGAGE!!!!! Most of all, that Bo dude looks and acts like a TOTAL NUT-JOB…YIKES!!!!! And Joanne…I (also) can’t wait for Monday’s new episode!!!!!! Yep.

Take care, Joanne. XOXOXOXOXO

So happy to have Dallas back again. Judith Light is simply amazing. I hope she is made a regular cast member.

Great show with lots of twist and turns to keep us guessing! I just love Dallas, the acting was off the chain and everyone brought their A-game especially Josh Henderson, Julie Gonzalo, Linda Gray, Juan Pablo Di Pace.Amazing cast and storylines!


Lifetime’s ‘Ladies of the ’80s: A Divas Christmas’ Brings Epic Food Fight and “Slapfest Coup de Grâce”

Get ready for the feuding soap opera divas, when five actresses known for their signature primetime and daytime roles are brought together in Lifetime’s new holiday film, Ladies of the ’80s: A Divas Christmas.

Saturday night, December 2nd on Lifetime (8pm ET/7PM CT) marks the highly-anticipated holiday movie premiere featuring: Donna Mills (ex-Knots Landing), Nicolette Sheridan (ex-Knots Landing), Morgan Fairchild (ex-Falcon Crest et al), Linda Gray (ex-Dallas) and Loni Anderson (ex-WKRP in Cincinnati).

Here’s what we do know! In story, five alums from the long-running soap, The Great Lakes reunite for a live Christmas finale. Uh-oh!  Now take a look at the backstory of the colorful cast of characters (pay special attention to the clever twists on the actresses names!)

LAUREN EWING (Linda Gray) “Everyone thinks I’m so damn good all the time,” confesses the junk food-loving Lauren of her second act as a lifestyle guru. “I don’t know how Gwenyth Paltrow does it!”

DANA CUNNINGHAM (Donna Mills) Now a sitcom mom, she’s yet to make amends to ex-bestie Juliette after abruptly leaving the soap back in the day. Not that she hasn’t tried: “When I thought the world was going to end in Y2K,” Dana says, “I reached out to her, and she never called me back.”

LILY MARLOWE (Loni Anderson) After replacing Dana on ‘Great Lakes’, Lily never again found a role to win her acclaim. “What do I have to show for (my career)? An arc on  For the People – Shonda Rhimes’ only flop!”

JULIETTE MATHESON (Nicollette Sheridan) “She left me for L.A.,” the party girl turned fashion mogul recalls of Dana’s betrayal. Will their feud derail the entire event?

MARGEAUX ROBERTS (Morgan Fairchild) “Fasten your face-lifts, ladies, it’s gonna be a bumpy weekend!” The sassy grande dame of ‘Great Lakes’ sees the Juliette-Dana beef as the perfect escape from her own domestic drama.

Now, making this all the more hysterical is the director of The Great Lakes reunion special, which makes the five women live under the same roof, is its former child star Alex, who has gotten his ex-girlfriend, Nell to direct the finale. Meanwhile, in the subplot. the ‘Ladies of the ’80s’ come up with a plan to get Alex and Nell back together.

As with any good soap opera, there is a major food fight. Linda Gray shared with USA Today ,”The food fight was one take. And it was fabulous.” And of course, their is a bitch-fest slap-fest. Morgan Fairchild revealed, “Oh honey, we all got ours in. Mine was a simple, ‘How dare you?’ with a slap. But I was hoping for a punch.”

The movie’s EP, Larry Thompson, who is a Hollywood manager and has Donna Mills as a client, said that the entire scene peaks with the”slapfest coup de grâce.” What is that exactly? That is when Donna Mills pushes Nicollette Sheridan into a pool in a nod to Dynasty’s Lily bond battle between Dynasty’s Alexis (Joan Collins) and Krystle (Linda Evans).

In case you missed it previously, check out the trailer for Ladies of the ’80s: A Divas Christmas below, also starring Patrika Darbo, Alec Mapa, Mills real-life daughter, Chloe Mills, and Christopher Atkins with theme song by Tiffany.
