Huddle up, y’all

Here are the questions we’re pondering as we await tonight’s telecast of “Trust Me,” TNT’s latest “Dallas” episode:

What’s Elena and Nicolas’s next move? In “The Return,” last week’s third-season premiere, Elena (Jordana Brewster) formed a secret alliance with Cliff (Ken Kercheval) and agreed to help him prove the Ewings framed him. She lied to Carmen (Marlene Forte) about her scheme and took a job at Ewing Global, where she began snooping around for evidence against the family. Elena also recruited her childhood friend Nicolas Treviño (Juan Pablo Di Pace), a self-made billionaire who used to be known as Joaquin, to serve as Cliff’s proxy. Nicolas, who considers Elena’s parents to be his own, told Elena he wants revenge as much as she does. What will Elena and Nicolas do next — and what will Carmen say when she discovers their plan?

Will Bobby or John Ross prevail? To finance a major drilling venture in the Arctic, the Ewings decided to sell off their company’s consumer division, but Nicolas scuttled the deal. John Ross (Josh Henderson) suggested the family could raise the capital for the Arctic project by drilling on Southfork, but Bobby (Patrick Duffy) refused to go along, pointing out that he and Gary control the mineral rights. John Ross countered with evidence that suggests the oil under Southfork has risen to the surface, which means he could access it as the ranch’s co-owner. Will Bobby or John Ross win this fight?

What will Sue Ellen do? With Harris (Mitch Pileggi) in jail and Judith (Judith Light) in a “rehab hospital,” Emma (Emma Bell) became Ryland Transport’s chief executive. She agreed to give John Ross access to the company’s drilling and cargo ships — but only if he agreed to continue sleeping with her. He did, but he wasn’t very careful about it. When Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) spotted him coming out of Emma’s bedroom, John Ross lied and said he and Emma were just talking business. Sue Ellen didn’t look like she believed her son. What will she do with her suspicion that he’s a cheat?

Where does Harris go from here? The Mendez-Ochoa cartel bribed a judge to release Harris from jail and sent two shady characters to greet Harris as he emerged from custody. The men showed Harris a picture of Emma and Ann (Brenda Strong) and told him if he doesn’t resume his drug shipments, they’ll make Emma wish she was dead. What will Harris do?

What’s next for Christopher? After Elena apologized to Pamela (Julie Gonzalo) for concealing Drew’s role in the rig explosion, Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe) told Elena he was sorry for treating her so badly in Zurich. Elena told him she’s not ready to take him back, which is just as well since Christopher seemed quite taken with Heather (AnnaLynne McCord), a spunky Southfork ranch hand. Will she help him heal his broken heart?

What “Dallas Burning Questions” are on your mind? Share your comments below and watch TNT’s “Dallas” tonight.


  1. Brandon Childers says:

    If Carmen raised all three of them together, why doesn’t Bobby, Christopher, or John Ross recognize him?

    Is what Judith said in the hospital true? Does she lie for Harris because she is afraid of him? Could she become a Ewing Allie?

    Do Sue Ellen and Bobby have any ownership in the company?

    Will the Ewings punish the governor for his involvement?

    Will Pamela or Sue Ellen find out who really killed JR?

    Will John Ross make a play to bring down what ever it is that makes Nicolas a billionare?

    Will Sue Ellen switch to Bobby and Christopher’s side, along with Pamela after finding out about John Ross cheating habit, destroying John Ross’s power in the company?

    Will Miss Ellie’s relaid announce me contested, overturned, or proved fake?

    Those are some questions I would like answered.

    • Brandon, you raise a good point about the governor. I suspect we’ll see him again before all is said and done. Frankly, I’m surprised he hasn’t shown up already.

  2. If john ross can cheat with emma ryland, then its ok 4 me 2 sleep with his wife.

  3. Sue Ellen went back to her cheating husband over and over
    JR had a fake will made of Jock’s real will
    Judith is the new resident phsycopath
    The Ewings punish anyone who betrays them, family included
    John Ross has JR’s greed, no one or nothing is safe.
    JR’s murderer will remain a secret, just as Christopher’s real mother has been well hidden
    In Miss Ellie’s will, there was no mention of John Ross getting 50% of southfork. It went entirely to Bobby.
