What’s in a name?

The titles and airdates for the first six episodes from “Dallas’s” new season are starting to pop up on TiVo and online TV listings. Stop reading now if you don’t appreciate breathless speculation about even the tiniest “Dallas” tidbits.

Here are the titles and dates: “The Return,” February 24; “Trust Me,” March 3; “Playing Chicken,” March 10; “Lifting the Veil,” March 17; “D.T.R.,” March 24; and “Like Father, Like Son,” March 31.

The listings also include a brief synopsis for “The Return,” the season’s first episode: “Sue Ellen plans a wedding for John Ross and Pamela; John Ross and Bobby dispute their joint ownership of Southfork; Elena returns to Dallas with a secret agenda; a mysterious stranger arrives.”

Keep in mind: This kind of stuff is subject to change, so take all of it with a grain of Southfork soil. Nevertheless, it’s worth considering what we might glean from this minutiae. For example, doesn’t “Lifting the Veil” seems like a good bet to be the wedding episode that brings Ray (Steve Kanaly), Lucy (Charlene Tilton) and Afton (Audrey Landers) back to Southfork? As for “D.T.R.”? Urban Dictionary tells us this expression is slang for “define the relationship,” although I wouldn’t put it past those crafty “Dallas” writers to give the acronym its own twist.

Thanks to Dallas Decoder reader Joe Siegler for tipping us off to the titles and airdates.

  1. Jennifer Irons says:

    I love the titles of the episodes and as for that joint ownership of Southfork btw Bobby and John Ross, I still do NOT believe it was Miss Ellie who orchestrated that in her supposed letter that was read during the reading of JR’s will. I firmly believe that somehow JR found a way to get 1/2 of SF transferred legally to his son! That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, LOL!

  2. Some interesting details on the Family Tree – Pam is still alive. Kristen Shepherd is Christopher’s mother.

    • I wouldn’t read too much into that, Jump. My guess is the TNT folks haven’t gotten around to updating the family tree. I think Cynthia Cidre considers Pam deceased.

  3. I hope you don’t mind C.B. & Andy if I suggest a subtitle for these amazing DALLAS Decoder entries: “Absolutely Fandamntastic!” This applies to each & every one of them gents! To the new Ewing Global & total world domination! The oil bidness Bob, the oil bidness!
