TNT's DALLAS Midseason Finale Was On FIYAH … Literally!

The creative team behind TNT’s Dallas promised a blockbuster midseason finale and it lived up to it, in that there were so many cliffhangers it left heads spinning! And, can we all just stop a moment and take in how deliciously twisted Judith Light’s portrayal of Judith Ryland truly is!

The episode which aired on Monday night, burned down the house, ah Southfork to be exact! But before the fire started, there were flames igniting all over the place!

Pamela (Julie Gonzalo) sees the video of John Ross (Josh Henderson) and Emma (Emma Bell) having sex, which sets off a horrific chain of events.

She is already pissed off at her husband and her so-called best friend, but also very angry at Ann (Brenda Strong) and Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) for keeping that tryst from ever coming out to her!  Later, Sue Ellen tried to make Pamela understand that she knows what it feels like to be betrayed and wanted to protect her, only Pamela tore into Sue Ellen and told her she was nothing but a weak drunk!  So cue Sue Ellen to down every single bottle of booze she could get her hands on at Southfork until she passed out drunk.

Next, Pamela uses her phone to track down John Ross who is at the Omni Hotel with Emma, who is also setting up the guy  thanks to Judith’s words to her which were, “I know from personal experience what pleasure strong men can give women like us and how sometimes our hearts get involved even when we don’t want them to. Be smart, my darling girl. They heel better when they have a leash around their neck.”  Judith knows John Ross wants in at Ryland Transport and is playing her granddaughter.

When Pamela arrives in the hotel room and catches John Ross and Emma in bed, you think she is going to pull out a gun on them, but instead is wearing the same green teddy as Emma … and she begins making out with Emma. Next, and at first appalled John Ross, joins in!  As the trio are having their romp, Pamela goes into convulsions and John Ross and Emma find a bottle of pills in her coat …  and they call 911!

Elsewhere, Drew (Kuno Becker) is back and hell bent on destroying the Ewings!  Elena (Jordana Brewster) is panicked!  Joaquin (AKA Nicolas) wants Drew to stay out of Elena and his way and their plan!.  Elena realizes she should have never blamed Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe) for anything, but Nicolas (Juan Pablo di Pace) screws with her birth control and then has sex with her to get her pregnant!

Ann, after a big blow out fight with Bobby (Patrick Duffy), ends up at Harris Ryland’s (Mitch Pileggi) and the two kiss after she has drink.  Realizing the closeness of the moment, Ann leaves at this point, but Judith is furious as she witnesses the exchange from the upper window!

Christopher and Bobby have driven off to try to find Bo, who kidnapped Michael from Heather (AnnaLynne McCord), after Heather and Christopher decided to be together!  But from the looks of it, Bo set fire to Southfork! Or, did he?   And inside Southfork is a passed out Sue Ellen!  Later, when Christopher and Bobby arrive home to see their home in flames, they go inside, but are knocked out by falling ceiling beams!

So what did you think of the midseason finale of Dallas?  What was the biggest shocker to you?  What was your favorite moment in the episode?  Weigh-in!

I liked it a lot. I didn’t believe that Pamela was going to do something we wouldn’t be able to see coming and had never been done before. Boy, was I wrong. In a good way!

I thought it was a great episode with a lot of cliffhangers and questions to be answered.For example who really set the fire at Southfork?Plus if Pamela recovers will she remember everything?Plus will Sue Ellen,Bobby and Christopher survive the fire unscathed?I can’t wait till the Summer when the new episodes air?

Not surprise on how powerful the cliff hanger was considering it was Dallas who invented the season ending cliffhanger with the famous Who Shot JR episode. Since that time, most prime time dramas have ended their season and their mid seasons with a cliff hanger

I thought the threesome was a very bold move– and unexpected— was Pam trying to kill herself or just taking pills to work up the nerve for the threesome? She just told Sue Ellen she wasn’t like her, weak, so taking pills to kill herself doesn’t seem plausible. Perhaps she took just enough to make John Ross feel so guilty he would never cheat on her again.

As for the house fire– who started it? Could be Drew, Bo, or even Sue Ellen in her drunken stupor might have caused it. Perhaps John Ross ordered in burnt down to get around Bobby’s objection to his remodel of it.

And that Joaquin has all the makings of real villain — tampering with Elena’s birth control that is just nasty.

So it was certainly a jam-packed episode, almost too much considering some episodes this year crawled along at a snail’s pace.

Lastly I am hoping Judith Light gets a Emmy for her work, she has been wonderful in this show.

In the original Dallas a season ended with Southfork on fire and SueEllen drunk upstairs so last night really was nothing new. Big disappointment. This reboot is just no fun.

It was probably the BEST hour of television I’ve watched in a really long time. However, when I saw that return date, I started breaking out in hives. What am I gonna do until August 18th?! Yeah, I mean, these other TV shows are ok, but NOBODY can do it like Dallas these days.

I loved it, and I’m old school Dallas. Who’d thought our sweet Karen Wolek was so darn creepy! Whoa Pamela I didn’t see that one coming. I didn’t know hubby was watching in the bedroom (I thought he left me to go watch baseball). I heard a big ole HOLY S#$%! coming from the bedroom. It’s too long to wait til August. Please make this a spring and summer show so it doesn’t compete with some other cable shows.

I’m hoping the 3some is a dream. It didn’t make any sense. Linda Gray is doing an amazing job. She deserves an Emmy … best drunk on TV ever!

If you really want to do something that would cause a stir on Dallas. Get Victoria Principal to reprise her role as Pamela Ewing. They never killed her off they just said that she went off somewhere in the Midwest.

Is That You Bobby Ewing? ‘Dallas’ Favorite Patrick Duffy Dons New Look For Guest Spot On ‘American Housewife’

In this week’s tis’ the season episode of the comedy series, American Housewife, none other than former  Dallas and The Bold and the Beautiful star Patrick Duffy returns to TV, when in story, Katie (Katie Nixon) strives to keep her long-separated parents apart when her father, Marty (Duffy), arrives in time to surprise the Otto family for Christmas.  The episode is aptly titled, “Saving Christmas”

This then puts Marty face-to-face and toe-to-toe with ex-wife Kathryn, played by the wonderful Wendie Malick.

Soap fans will remember the Hot in Cleveland crossover between Malick and Susan Lucci of All My Children.

The first look photos of Duffy on American Housewife were first delivered by ABC to TV Insider.

The Duffy-esque episode airs on Wednesday December 12th (8:30pm EST)

For Dallas fans, they are still wishing that that somehow the show will still come back in another incarnation after its latest (the TNT version) was canned after three seasons.

Y&R and Dallas Alum, Oscar Winner George Kennedy Has Died

Photo Credit: WireImage

George Kennedy,  the Oscar-winning star of 1967’s Cool Hand Luke, which also starred Paul Newman has died at age 91, his grandson, Cory Schenkel confirmed.

Kennedy died in his sleep at his Boise, Idaho home early Sunday morning, the day of the Academy Awards.  He had been in failing health ever since his wife Joan died a little over a year ago. George had been under hospice care for the past month.

In the soaps, Kennedy is most remembered for his guest stints on The Young and the Restless playing Victor Newman’s despicable father, Albert Miller.  Kennedy first played the role in 2003 and then reprised it again in 2010.   Victor’s relationship with his father gave Eric Braeden some of the finest material of his career as the complex Victor.  Albert had abandoned his family, causing his son to be raised in an orphanage.

CBS original primetime soap Dallas also featured Kennedy as Carter McKay, one of the Ewing families bitter enemies from 1988 to 1991.  Geroge also played the role in two follow-up TV movies, 1996’s Dallas: J.R. Returns and 1998’s Dallas: War of the Ewings.  In addition, Kennedy appeared in several of the 70’s major disaster films including the original Airport and several sequels, as well as in Earthquake.  In the 80’s, he would appear in The Naked Gun franchise of films along with Leslie Nielsen.

After the jump, watch George Kennedy as Albert on The Young and the Restless in scenes with Eric Braeden and Joshua Morrow (Nick).  Then share your thoughts on the passing of this talented actor in the comment section below! (more…)
