But who really killed J.R.? That’s for Bobby to know, and for us to find out — eventually.
“I know it’s hard to accept, but J.R. Ewing is dead.” Those chilling words — spoken by some rando Mexican policewoman — set the stage for a truly depressing episode of Dallas, as the associates of Southfork, and the viewers who have been following J.R. (Larry Hagman) for more than 30 years, laid the TV icon to rest.
Brenda previews the intense drama to come, including her icy on-screen relationship with newcomer Judith Light.
Dallas‘ second season has only just begun, but thanks to her long-lost daughter and her blackmailing ex-husband, Ann has already suffered enough emotional damage to last a lifetime. So her troubles are over, right? Nice try; Brenda Strongtells HollywoodLife.com that Ann’s heartache has only just begun!
No one shot J.R., but the first season finale of ‘Dallas’ still featured a bevy of soapy twists — including one that paid homage to the original series.
If I was J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman), my enormous billowy eyebrows would have been raised for the entirety of Dallas‘ Aug. 8 season finale. A twisty mind-screw from start to finish, the episode wrapped up a stellar first season by leaving no dirty secret unexposed. It’s a good thing Bobby (Patrick Duffy) survived his brain aneurysm, because season two is going to be in-sane.

Dallasruled the ratings when its first aired from 1978 to 1991, and it looks like history is repeating itself, because the June 13 premiere of TNT’s Dallas reboot drew in a whopping 6.9 million viewers. That makes it the year’s No. 1 scripted series premiere! Like the original series, the new Dallas focuses on the Ewings, a wealthy Texan brood with its hand in the local oil and cattle industries — but a lot has changed since we bid farewell to them 22 years ago.
