TNT’s Dallas Styles: ‘Endgame’ and ‘Brave New World’

Brave New World, Emma Bell, Endgame, John Ross Ewing, Josh Henderson, Judith Light, Juan Pablo Di Pace, Linda Gray, Nicolas Trevino, Sue Ellen Ewing, TNT, Which Ewing Dies?

“Dallas” ended its third season with heroes falling and villains rising — and their costumes reflected their changing fortunes.

John Ross (Josh Henderson) went rogue when he headed to Mexico to save Ewing Global and his mistress Emma — not necessarily in that order — and so of course he donned his trusty leather jacket, which has been a symbol of heroism and rebellion on “Dallas” from the original show’s earliest days. Later, when Emma (Emma Bell) stood in the Southfork driveway and delivered a heartfelt apology for all the trouble she caused this year, she wore a plain, no-frills hoodie, an ideal choice for a character baring her soul.

Meanwhile, Sue Ellen ended the season by gazing at J.R.’s portrait and declaring she finally felt free of him. “Hell, I might even find love again,” she told Bobby — and does anyone doubt she’s ready? Costume designer Rachel Sage Kunin dressed Linda Gray in a sexy blue dress, which suggested she’s feeling fun and flirty again now that she’s back on the wagon. Later, Judith (Judith Light) made a dramatic entrance with an outfit to match — a white blouse with a bold design, black skirt and killer earrings.

The most dramatic transformation belonged to Nicolas (Juan Pablo Di Pace), who was revealed in the closing moments of the season as the evil mastermind behind the deaths of El Pozolero, Luis and — sniff, sniff — Christopher. For this scene, Kunin dressed Di Pace in a white suit, which highlighted his dark features. He’s never looked deadlier, has he?

I also love how Nicolas was walking with a cane, the accessory of choice for evil geniuses everywhere. Plop a purring kitten in his lap next season and his supervillain look will be complete.

  1. I liked the vocabulary & styles of compliments that Judith & John Ross stated 2 1 another as they confronted Uncle Bobby & Miss Texas! Lovely oration, witty, “public service” being noble for Judith Ryland my ass!
