Things certainly got tense on "Dallas" this week, and it wasn't the standoff at gunpoint that went down at Southfork that had the biggest sparks. It was Sue Ellen using a loophole in her contract with Elena that allowed her to sieze Elena's shares of Ewing Energies.
It was all orchestrated by John Ross, who helped facilitate Elena's breach of that clause in the contract. When she showed up to face a confrontation by Bobby over her double-cross, it just happened to be the moment that one of John Ross' former business associates showed up to get what was owed him.
In the end, he was gunned down, but Bobby hoped that the joint family trauma would help Sue Ellen realize that their children were simply repeating the feud that's always come between Bobby and J.R. Of course, J.R. helped cement the deal by setting up a virus that destroyed the evidence Bobby had over John Ross. And here he was pretending to barely understand technology.
"I never go looking for a fight, but when one finds me I sure as hell finish it, and they are in for the fight of their lives," Bobby said after Sue Ellen went through with her plan to take Elena's shares.
The drama will only escalate after this week. Next week will be Larry Hagman's final episode as J.R. Ewing -- he passed away during filming for this season.
