What Did You Think of ‘Dallas’ This Week?

Bobby Ewing, Dallas, Patrick Duffy, TNT, Victims of Love

Deep thoughts

You’re invited to Dallas Decoder’s next #DallasChat on Twitter, which I’ll hold Tuesday, September 9, from 9 to 10 p.m. Eastern time.

Our topic: “Victims of Love,” this week’s episode of TNT’s “Dallas.”

If you have ideas for questions, leave them in the comments section below, tweet them to me @DallasDecoder or post them to my Facebook page. I may choose one or more questions and ask them during our discussion.

New to #DallasChat? Here’s how it works: For one hour, I tweet 10 questions to my fellow “Dallas” fans. Each question is numbered and includes the hashtag #DallasChat, so your answers should do the same. Please include the show’s official hashtag, #DallasTNT, in your tweets too.

Here’s a sample exchange:

Q1. Will Bobby be able to reunite his family at Southfork? #DallasTNT #DallasChat

A1. Of course! The Ewings always find their way back home eventually. #DallasTNT #DallasChat

This will be another fun discussion. Please join us!


  1. I really felt like I was watching “Dallas” and not a reboot of the show. I used to have a hang up about Carmen and last night when they said they came on to South FOrk in the 1990’s help clarify how the Ramos family fits into the timeline. The only thing I found odd is that Hunter McKay had majority control of Ewing Global and zero security. John Ross and Christopher just knocked on his door. I have a feeling they will deeply regret that visit. I had the entire grasp of the story line. I thought it was about time they include Christopher in the actual story line. Bobby really stepped up and cut off all that in fighting before it started. Cliff Barnes was great and I wonder how things are going to work out for him. It looks to me that he is worse off now than he was when he first went to prison. The highlight for me was Pamela. Julie Gonzalo was on fire last night. The talk with Sue Ellen and the talk with Cliff were two great scenes. It was great to get a better understanding of her character. The slap she put on John Ross was great. The line “You selfish bastard. Lying and cheating were the only two things you were good at and now you’ve failed at them too.” is, in my opinion, the best line of the show. I have to say that John Ross had some great one liners too. I do not think it is Bum taking all of thee pictures of Nicolas and Elena. I wonder if it is the drug cartel or if it is the same people they hired to spy on the Ewings?

  2. I think the photographer has to do with the wife of Nicolas.
    Why did John Ross want the shares to go to the sheik?

  3. Marilyn Hadey says:


  4. The performance of horror by Miss Judy Light as Judy Ryland when she reacted in horror to the gift of the cut off hands of Candace was textbook brilliant acting C.B.! And Cliffy getting left in jail by Pamela was rather poetic justice as he did kill her babies!

    • Judith Light is a wonderful actress, even if her Madame Ruland character is campy and over-the-top. Her reaction of horror was when she saw the video of kidnapped, bound and gagged Emma, her granddaughter. Judith’s reaction to the hands in the box was to just quickly close the lid. She had previously given Luis orders to take care of Candice. I don’t think the shock value of dead hands in a box will boost ratings.
