#DallasChat Daily: What’s Linda Gray’s Best Scene?

Dallas, Governor Sam McConaughey, Linda Gray, Steven Weber, Sue Ellen Ewing, TNT

The Primetime Emmy nominations will be announced this week, and Linda Gray is a contender for a dramatic actress nod. Which one of her scenes this season impressed you most?

Was it Sue Ellen’s confrontation with John Ross, when he pleaded with her to stop drinking? How about the scene where she confronted him about his affair with Emma, telling him he was “just like” J.R.? What about the scene where Sue Ellen playfully blackmails Governor McConaughey?

    I have to go with the blackmailing of the governor to get Bobby appointed head of the Railroad Commission. This was my Sue Ellen (seen way to little on TNT) which bested JR through the purchase and use of Valentine Lingerie making a reappearance. I miss her.

    I think Linda’s best scene was when Sue Ellen says “The Family that blackmails together, stays together” and says it with a smile on her face. Brilliant! JR would have been proud of her!

  3. Ant scene from Like Father, Like Son. Linda was fantastic throughout the entire episode, as she internalized her fellings instead of confronting them, and John Ross. She imploded into her bottle in classic Sue Ellen fashion, until she exploded in the kitchen scene with John Ross. I hope this episode was sent to the emmy voters, because this was the best of the series. Linda Gray shines in every scene.

  4. Actually I was more impressed with Miss Texas hiding in the back of the van with the recording setup & audio equipment listening in with Ex-Brother-In-Law Bobby! That vicious underhandedness & sneakiness has shades of you know who in it C.B. & Miss Jenny & Andy. Yes that’s right, Ex-Hubby J.R.! The master of deceit but with a friendly smile, haha!

    Blackmailing the Governor because it shows the feisty Sue Ellen is still in there somewhere. I love her emotional scenes ( seriously she doesn’t even have to open her mouth ) But I think it’s because of that, (and because I’m a total SE&LG nut) seeing her fall so far this season has been heart-breaking for me

    I liked all of the scenes mentioned; bit I LOVED when she blackmailed the Governor. It was classic late 80s Sue Ellen. The one who has continuously picked herself up by her stilettos and pushed her way forward. The one who learned at the feet of the master himself. That scene with her and Bobby in the the truck listening in on the Governor was epic. Love when she gets her nails dirty.
