TNT Dallas fans do not miss the return of the series, when its third season continues with all-new episodes kicking off tomorrow night, Monday, August 18th at 9PMET/8PMCT!

Here’s what you need to know: The summer run of TNT’s Dallas opens in the aftermath of a devastating fire at Southfork Ranch and the unexpected overdose of John Ross’ wife, Pamela Barnes Ewing (Julie Gonzalo). Each member of the family struggles to understand what’s happened, including John Ross, whose two-timing behavior may have finally caught up with him after Pamela discovered him with another woman. To make matters worse, that other woman is Emma Ryland (Emma Bell), the daughter of Bobby’s wife, Ann (Brenda Strong).

Christopher continues to reel after his engagement to Elena Ramos (Jordana Brewster) fell through, and the search for his mother ended with news that she died in 1989. He has found some comfort in a new relationship with Heather (AnnaLynne McCord), a 20-something ranch hand and single mother. But Heather’s ex-husband has just returned, bringing turmoil back into her life and the life of her 5-year-old son.

Elena, who grew up at Southfork as the daughter of the Ewings’ cook, Carmen Ramos (Marlene Forte), recently learned that the Ewings may have cheated her father out of valuable land by altering the original deed. Consumed with thoughts of justice for previous wrongs against her family, Elena has turned to an old childhood friend, Nicolas Treviño (Juan Pablo Di Pace).

The Ewings’ chief nemesis, Cliff Barnes (Ken Kercheval), has done everything he can to bring the Ewing family down, including getting his daughter, Pamela, to infiltrate the family by marrying Christopher. But after an attempt to sabotage an oilrig resulted in injuring Pamela and killing her and Christopher’s unborn twins, Cliff suddenly found his daughter turning against him. Pamela helped the Ewings gain a controlling interest in Barnes Global, then settled in for what she hoped would be a happy life with her new husband, John Ross.

Bobby’s wife, Ann, continues to battle with Harris Ryland (Mitch Pileggi), her scheming ex-husband who claims to be a government informant helping to shut down a drug smuggling operation. Ann also continues to build a relationship with her daughter, Emma, a sheltered beauty who has jumped in bed with John Ross – both literally and figuratively – in a bid to stir up trouble for her father, Harris. Things become even more difficult for everyone with the return of Harris’ controlling mother, Judith (Judith Light), who not only owns a controlling interest in her son’s transportation business but also runs a high-price prostitution ring.

And to have some fun with the return of the show,the Dallas News revealed five things they hope to see happen when the season returns : 1) Assuming Pamela survives her suicide attempt, wouldn’t it be but wouldn’t it be hideously awesome if she and Emma both ended up pregnant by John Ross? 2) ) Sue Ellen gets sent back to the, er, Dallas Institute for Rehabilitation and Treatment (DIRT), suspected of causing the fire. If so, we can only hope she has better duds than the nasty gray fashion failures from last season. 3) John Ross gets his wish to remodel Southfork, courtesy of the fire — wait! did he have someone set it? — and models it after the Gianni Versace mansion in Florida 4) Bobby’s whiny wife Ann and her ex, mommy’s boy Harris Ryland (Mitch Pileggi,  go further than that brief kiss they shared earlier this season, setting things up for a hair-pulling, botox-punching cat-ight between Ann and the Harris’ er, doting, mom, Judith (the utterly fabulous Judith Light).  5) We hope that either Elena (Jordana Brewster) or her pseudo-brother, now-lover Nicolas (Juan Pablo di Pace) ends up actually being yet another spawn of dearly departed J.R. Ewing (dearly departed actor Larry Hagman).

So, what do you hope happens when the second half of TNT’s Dallas begins tomorrow night? Share your story ideas and thoughts below!

    I wish I could get into this show … but I can’t.

    It’s not even 1/10 as good as the 1978-1991 iconic legend which is DALLAS.

    Getting Victoria Principal back would be ridiculously amazing on every front.

    Agree with you about getting Victoria Principal on the show would be awesome. But I differ on the reboot–I love the new DALLAS!

    Hmmm…@Mama..you can’t get into the new show yet you follow posts and make comments about said show. If you can’t stomach it you certainly wouldn’t care what’s being posted about it. I happen to think the show is fun and entertaining and am glad it was brought back. Since it’s 2014 i’m glad they are in no way trying to mimic a late 70′s vibe. SOOOO wouldn’t work. Take off your flowing flowered scarf(that’s tied in a knot)..take off those Foster Grant’s…and above all else…DITCH THE BELL BOTTOMS..and the double dial color tv and come back to Dallas in THIS ERA!!

    LOL! I love those early episodes at the discos. A few years later the big clunky PCs in the offices and dot matrix print outs…. I love new Dallas too and we’ve certainly come a long in pushing the envelope (a 3-way!). Remember Lucy’s first fiancé? I think it was prime time’s first “non flamboyant” gay man. People were shocked at Lucy’s heartbreaking acceptance. I also think of Miss Ellie’s breast cancer (how many women had heard of self exam before these episodes aired?), and society queen Sue Ellen’s life long struggle with alcoholism (usually played for laughs in spaghetti westerns). Just as I watched “Old D” as a tween and teen, I watch “New D” as a middle ager.

    @Shelly LOVE IT. Especially when Knots was Thursday’s go too followed by Friday’s Dallas and Falcon Crest with the great Angela Channing…what better way to follow up J.R. Ewing than with his female counter part…ahhh..those WERE the days!!!

    It was a great show thru 1985 when Bobby died then Larry Hagman & Patrick Duffy screwed the show up. A dream really? PD could not find work needed the pay check and LH drunk all the time they took over and the show did a nose dive. This is what happens when you let actors step in. I never was able to get involved again because all my crying for Bobby was a joke.

    @davlestev1 Those were the days! Knots, to me, was the beginning of the weekends. You brought back a fun memory when I was a young teen I babysat a kid who watched Dukes of Hazzard at the 8 oclock hour on Friday nights. The deal was, if I sat with him through his entire show, he’d go straight to bed at 9 so I could watch Dallas then FC!

    Above all I want Sue Ellen to find sobriety AND a new man- a strong yet decent man who won’t break her heart like J.R. did, even though he did really love her. Also, please give Christopher Ewuing a break!! He’s had so much crap happen to him, he’s become the Job of the show! By the way, I bet 10 to 1 that the story Cliff fed Elena (who’s dumb as a post) about J.R. cheating her late father out of his land turns out to be one big lie. She’s headed for a big fall thanks to Nicolas, and she deserves it. Let’s see if Christopher will even care to help her once the truth comes out…..

    Isn’t it about time for uber nut-job Katherine Wentworth to be released from that mental institution? I’m sure Cliff could find a job for her!

    My friend and I were messaging back and forth and we both agreed; what a super episode. It was a very fast hour! I never thought I’d look forward to Mondays.
