TONIGHT: Dallas Two-Hour Season Finale! Patrick Duffy Says,"One of the best executions of a cliff-hanger in the history of Dallas!"

Tonight the question will be answered! Who killed J.R. Ewing? There is a line-up of suspects including: Cliff Barnes, Harris Ryland, Pamela Barnes Ewing, Pamela Rebecca Barnes, or perhaps one of J.R.’s former mistresses and wives who returned for his funeral for a millisecond?  Or, is it someone else on the canvas?  Or, did J.R. take his own life, perhaps knowing he was ill-fated?  The two-hour season two finale of Dallas airs on TNT at 9EST/8CST!

Series star Patrick Duffy spoke to TV Guide relating what he thinks of the big shocker on tonight’s finale: ” I think writing for the last episode of this show is one of the best executions of a cliff-hanger in the history of Dallas.”

Duffy also spoke with Access Hollywood about the possible re-emergence of Pam (Victoria Principal) who many feel is behind J.R’s offing, and how the “Who killed J.R.?” answer will be revealed stating, “Well, what I can hint at is it is so ‘guilty party paying for their deeds.’  It is a remarkable resolution to that, which is the ‘master plan.’ So the end of the show turns out exactly the way (J.R.) planned it in this master plan, but it’s a resolution that I don’t think a single audience member will say, ‘Oh, I knew that was gonna be it!’ Nobody’s is gonna know and everybody’s gonna be surprised as to who shot him.”

In regards to a Principal return, Duffy stated,  “We’ve been dangling that carrot now for two reasons. One… it’s always good to hang an old girlfriend or wife out in front of the hero when he’s happily married. That’s a great thing to do, but also there’s issues with sons and family and being abandoned and all that stuff, and that’s a lot of red meat for (Jesse Metcalfe’s] character. So almost everybody has a reason to be interested in the Pamela character and will she or won’t she, which also then means Victoria (Principal) — will she or won’t she? This is great stuff for the audience and great stuff for us because it’s so typical ‘Dallas,’ isn’t it?

Hmm…..what about James Beaumont (JR’s illegitimate son),portrayed by Sacha Mitchell ?
Maybe he offed his old man.
Or Donna Krebbs (Ray’s ex -wife),or Jena Wade (Priscilla Presley)…
JR had lots of enemies….so many possibilities.

The ultimate in reveals. Dallas hid Larry Hagman away in Mexico for 8 months and he will show up at the end really alive…. Only in Soaps lol.

Can’t “WAIT” To See It lol 🙂

Like i said in the past I still like to think J.R. staged his own murder knowing he was dieing anyway to frame anyone of his enemies just to get the last laugh! It just sounds like something this slick schemer would do!

if they were to “recast”

does any one – remember Jed Allan, C.C. Capwell… from Santa Barbara?

dang! he fully embodied…. what J.R. did.

powerful, masterful, strong character…

loved that whole cast…. Santa Barbara ROCKED!

I miss that soap more than i do OLTL! I remember Santa Barbara: C.C Capwell, Mason, Kelly, Ted and poor Mary who was done in by the capitol C that fell on her while she was on the roof of the Capwell building. and i always loved Gina played by Linda Gibbony? then Robin Mattson. Now that was a fun well written soap that shouldve never been cancelled. P.S. i doubt theyd bring back J.R. especially as a recast. Plus i remember Jed Allen on Days as Don Craig!

After watching last nights cliffhanger, seems my guess is correct?

If Victoria Principal shows up at the end of tonight’s ep, it will be the best cliffhanger since Bobby appeared in the shower! 😉

Am I alone here? I do not care to see Pam return in the body of Victoria Principal or anyone else. I am finished there. And it seems wrong that Pam would turn evil as she was the one who wanted to live without the Barnes-Ewing feud shading her and Bobby’s life.

Cannot wait to watch!

Iakovos…you are not alone. My hope is that Pam is indeed dead and Katherine (played by Morgan Brittany) will be found to living as Pam. Victoria Principal’s lack of appreciation of her Dallas past has always bugged me but Morgan Brittany has always loved her Dallas past and her fans.

Last nite’s episode was very anti-climatic. I understand they had to re-do the 2nd half of the season, in a very short amount of time, to account for Larry Hagman’s death. Still love the show, still gonna watch, but I’m just saying. I’d like to see them re-ignite the John Ross-Christopher feud. John Ross was already in the gutter, gonna be fun to watch Christopher join him.

Oh I’m sure there will be plenty of future feuding.
John Ross following in his daddy’s footsteps – cheating on his wife (the scoundrel).
Elena learning of the Ewing dirty dealing regarding her father’s land.
If in fact it’s true and not some contrived plot by Cliff.
Oh there’s def gonna be some fireworks.
Can’t wait.

Broke my heart to see John Ross cheat on Pamela at the end. They are so good together I don’t want their marriage to be some quickie mistake. I want John Ross to be madly in love with Pamela so this lasts a long time fighting, and loving. Couldn’t wait for the finale and that left me sad.

‘Dallas’ star Ken Kercheval Dead At Age 83

Sad news to report for fans of the iconic primetime soap, Dallas.  Ken Kercheval, who played the thorn in J.R. Ewing’s (Larry Hagman) side, Cliff Barnes, has passed away.   The actor was 83 and died at his home in Indiana on Sunday.   The cause of death is under wraps.  He had been previously open about being a lung cancer survivor after years of smoking.

Kercheval was on Dallas for its entire run on CBS from 1978 to 1991, and returned to the TNT reboot from 2012 to 2014 to reprise his signature role.

On Dallas, Cliff Barnes was always the perennial loser when he went toe to toe with ruthless J.R, but in the final season, Cliff beats J.R at his own game and takes over Ewing Oil.  Cliff was also hopelessly in love with Sue Ellen Ewing (Linda Gray) and was the brother to Pam Barnes, played by Victoria Principal.

As for Ken’s first big acting breaks, that came on daytime soap operas when early in his career he appeared on Search for Tomorrow and How to Survive a Marriage.

Later, he appeared on episodic dramas such as Starsky & Hutch, and Crossing Jordan.  His final role was in a movie, 2019’s Surviving in L.A. said to be a comedy/drama in which he plays the business manager of a former teen sitcom star who trashed her life through drug abuse and is fresh out of rehab.

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

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.
