On tonight’s season 2 episode of the TNT TV show Dallas, “JR’s Masterpiece,” the Ewings are forced to put aside their differences when J.R. Ewing is found killed. The family and old friends come together to mourn, leading to a shocking revelation that changes everything.
Dallas is based on the secrets, schemes and betrayals abound within the Texas oil dynasty as the iconic elders of the Ewing family — original series stars Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray — are joined by the next generation, who give lies and ambition new meaning. In the new series, John Ross (Josh Henderson), JR and Sue Ellen Ewing’s son, is determined to drill for oil on Ewing land. Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe), Bobby’s adopted son, hopes to take the family business away from oil and toward alternative energy sources, with his fiancée (Julie Gonzalo). Complicating matters is the presence of Elena Ramos (Jordana Brewster), John Ross’s girlfriend and Christopher’s ex-fiancée. With an increasingly volatile feud brewing, the stage is set for JR to return to his nefarious ways and rekindle his own long-standing rivalry with younger brother, Bobby.
Dallas season 2, episode 8, “JR’s Masterpiece,” airs Monday, March 11, at 9 p.m. on TNT. Spoiler pictures below:
