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!
