'Dallas': Lee Majors Shows Up As Potential Love Interest For Sue Ellen (VIDEO)

03/26/2013 07:44 am ET

Since the passing of Larry Hagman, there have been plenty of familiar faces traipsing across the screen on "Dallas." The latest is there because of a close friendship with Hagman. It was, in fact, Hagman who wanted Lee Majors to be on the show, but it only worked out after Hagman's death.

Perhaps it's appropriate that Majors' character, Ken Richards, is brought in as a potential love interest for Sue Ellen. That's how The Dallas Morning News sees it, though they're not sure if they're ready to approve such a union -- J.R. is barely in his grave.

She reached out to him after that oil rig explosion to try and find out what happened. She also seemed to appreciate the opportunity to spend time with him. "I find it serendipitous that the one man that could help me is someone I’d been hoping to bump into for a social call," she told him. Or perhaps she was just playing him. Majors is signed on for at least three episodes, and could do more, so there's time yet to find out.

Regardless, the two certainly enjoyed one another's company. Even better, she learned that Christopher and negligence had nothing to do with the explosion. It was sabotage.

That news came just in time to save Christopher from a severe beating by John Ross, as Pamela lost both of the twins. She'd been badly injured in the accident, and everyone -- including Christopher -- had been certain it was all Christopher's fault. Now, this will be something to unite them against Cliff Barnes. Wait until they find out he knew his daughter was on that rig and ordered it blown up anyway.

Things never slow down on "Dallas," Mondays at 10 p.m. ET on TNT.
