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?
So here we go, who do you think will be revealed as the killer of J.R. Ewing? Do you think Victoria Principal will be seen in the final moments of tonight’s two hour season finale of TNT’s Dallas? Weigh-in on some of the hottest buzzing questions in soapland!
