The way Bum explained it to J.R. Cliff found Frank on the streets(I can't recall where)and put him through collage. Bum told J.R. Cliff had treated Frank like a son. Cliff said the same about Frank being like a son to him in tonight's episode. As it stands Frankie was just an employee who Cliff looked on as family. I'd hate to find out Frankie was actually Cliff's child after Cliff all but told the poor mentally frail man to off himself.
Yes, Cliff found Frank, who was a young boy, and took him in and cared for him. He wanted Pamela to have a brother. I guess he didn't consider sibling rivalry...
I am in a state of shock after tonight's episode. I was hoping to see more of Frank throughout the series. He was an interesting new character. Christopher's one, and only hope to get that anullment now resides with Tommy's phone. Frank admitted he killed Tommy yes, but that phone could prove she told him, which makes her an accomplice. Hopefully JR will get something done before he goes in regard to Pamela Rebecca.
I am Team Rebecca and I hate Christopher. So I'm happy with the ending. It was so quaint watching Christopher bounce off the walls.
I think Ann belongs either in jail or a mental institution. Bobby is wrong to protect her, and very misguided. Because she needs help. When she was merely running around and pointing her shotgun at people, it was one thing. But shooting people is wrong. I'm tending to think that Ryland had good reason to save his child from her.
Drew is a drip.
Just like that song was saying: "The Devil's a lie". I was completely DISGUSTED by Monday's show!!!!!! I wanted to like Annie, but after she let Bobby take the heat for her failed murder attempt, I can't get with her. She follows Bobby's instructions ONLY when it's convenient. That heifer consistently goes against his suggestions, but as SOON as he told her to shut up about the truth that would take her down, she keeps her trap shut. The only reason she finally wanted to confess was when she heard that Ryland was out of his coma making a statement.
I already didn't like Pamela and NOW I can't stand her or her dusty daddy for what they did to Frank. Dear Lord, the truth has GOTS to be somewhere!!!! Please writers don't let these idiots win.
^^^^^and, Tulip, I was thinking the same thing about Ryland and his "Mama".... Either she gave birth to him when she was nine-yrs-old (gross, but happens) or they are truly lovers that concocted this mother/son tale to railroad Annie. I hope that trigger-happy broad NEVA gets her daughter back. Lawd, Jesus, PLEASE don't let Ryland die!!!!! He's got a lot of butt to kick.
Well, time for me to chime in on last night's episode....
First, for me the star's of the show was Josh Henderson (John Ross) and Taran Fahir (Frank). JH keeps knocking it out the park EVERY week and I can't believe how much fun he is to watch. I love little scenes more than I do the big, shocking scenes... That said, I'll explain... The banter between Christopher and John Ross at the elevator was so much fun to me. Clever writing spoken by two actors who have embodied their roles wonderfully. For me, JH is the star of Dallas '12. Then we have TF as Frank. What a wonderful job he did last evening. I felt so bad for him. Granted I wasn't surprised that it wasn't Rebecca that the police were coming after, I thought it was Christopher to be honest, until they got to the hotel/condo, then I knew it was Frank.
I did feel sad and disgusted by Cliff for suggesting Frank fall on his sword and basically end his life. I wonder if he really did off Becky Sutter as well, or if it was Rebecca.
As for the Bobby and Anne scenes... I really wasn't all that blown away by them. I do understand WHY Bobby took the wrap and I don't come down on him as hard as some. Anne is certainly an emotional wreck and being played like a fiddle by Judith and Harris and the do know how to play her, to the hilt.
Judith Light is killing it and is VERY VERY creepy and almost, dare a I say NUTTY as Judith. My brother walked threw the living room during the bathing scene and was like... "Judith Light, loved her as Angela on Who's the Boss?. How'd her husband get shot?" I told him Harris is her son and he said.... Hm, looks like she'd like to be a Mom Wive (aka Sister Wives), LOL.
All in all, I wasn't all that impressed with last night's episode. Probably my least favorite episode of the entire series. The only bright spots were John Ross and Frank for me.
Only two more episodes with JR... Not sure if you all knew this, however, there has NEVER been an episode of Dallas without Larry Hagman, he's been in every episode of '78 and now, '12. It'll be very weird, however, I can't wait to see the drama as it all plays out and to see who comes home to visit.
yeah shes the avatar,it only took me 8 mos to figure out how to get her picture on there and then it was a mistake i hit the wrong button,so i dont i'd be able to do it again,when im watch dallas she lays with m,e when im posting she gets on the computer desk like now and sits,shes a dallas fan,she says shes jr kitty..................
midwest-i thought the show was awsome last night -i didnt like what cliff done to frank.i really dont understand what happen to cliff,i think all the power has went to his head or something,about bobby i wasnt shocked he took the fall for his wife,hes always done that for any of the wives,i can see why annie kept her mouth shout when bobby told her to,she knew he was right the daughter would never forgive her ,only one thing bugged me when she walked in and found harris she yelled emma call 911,why didnt she hear the gun shots but she can hear old mamma brown yelling....
My head is spinning - lol - I'm going to watch it again before commenting!
I found it strange (and funny) that Ann, last week, could just walk into Harris's home. It's like Drew said last week, "Don't you rich people lock your doors?"
It's always a geniune pleasure hearing from you Tulip! Thank you for sharing your thoughts
I want everyone to know how much I appreciate&thank you for sharing your thoughts&opinons with me in this thread. It means a lot to me!
am sure Bobby wont stay locked up too long! i will add more to this thread doc...once i watch the episode again lol... second viewing is important
i want too just start off by adding a little! but i was disappointed how John Ross turned on his Father for the sake of protecting his plan with Rebecca to destroy Christopher & Elena!
and to take Ewing Energies
and he met that damn Barnes!!
thanks doc,and we all love posting with you too..............ive read on the boards that some people talk about other ones they have been on and the fighting and bullying,im just so glad this is a nice one and i tell the people that,even if we dont agree we still post with each other and have a good time.................
Thanks again Victor Jr for everything!
I agree with a lot of what has been writen so far. I like that John Ross is trying to help Pamela (not sure its real..) I like him remembering he had two parents. Does any else thing Chris multi tasking at the police station was kinda funny. Seriously who has like two detectives to talk to when they go to a police station. The whole episode I kept trying to guess who is going to kill JR, and I have no idea
DrIvan, (sorry for second post), for some reason I can't get 'edit' to work and I wanted to add something, so just consider this a "PS" ....Your wish about Rylands's 'mother' NOT being his mother is also mine! (I will not believe it yet!!) It would make for much better drama-imo-if they (Ryland and Judith) were in cahoots to get Emma from Anne all those years ago, or even if he met Judith later and they are working together. It would be compleltely plausible if Judith had some type of encounter/relationship with JR in these 20 years that we did not see!! She may be out to 'get the Ewing's' as bitter Cliff is, because JR rejected her personally or in a buisness dealing. So Bobby would just be a way for her to get to JR? ....I could be so off of what's going to happen but I don't like the sooo talented JL being the mother of a man who looks like her husband/partner/lover! It seems posters are in agreement about this!! (Talk soon dear Dr.Ivan )
------It does like we posters are not liking JL being mother at all! As she look his age, but it's how she treats him, just not motherly at all, that is creepy. .....I just want to say I respectfully dissagree about Anne being the word you called her!! I think she is essentially a very strong woman, but all human beings have a breaking point, and Anne looking for her daughter after thinking that nightmare happened when Emma was a baby-and then to be rejected so cruely by Emma-after looking for her for 20 years!! That was Anne's breaking point, imo. Also because I see her as a very strong person in normal cicumstances, I think she will bounce back F-A-S-T and give Ryland and his 'mother' a real run for their money-without Bobby's help!! JMO, anyway.Originally Posted by He'sAliveToday^^^^^and, [B

.... and I will watch again on Saturday morning to see if I was just distracted with Biggest Loser, maybe my opinion on the episode will change... It's weird that I am the only one that wasn't that impressed, maybe it was because I was flipping between Dallas and Biggest Loser! Who knows?
Second... I wish we all lived close to each other and could watch Dallas together. We could fly Ewing_1 in from the UK and everything!!!! What fun it would be.

yes it would be nice to be in one room,i could see it now the dallas music playing and when dr,ivan walked in we'd all yell ivan,like they did on cheers when ever norm would enter the room..lol.i think it would only be hitting that we would all get together at the new dallas stadium and be watching dallas on the big screen,and afterwards we wrap it up going to southfork
P.S.I love your ideas about Judith! Oh how I hope tptb peruse boards(especially ours)to gage viewer pulse. If they do they'd be wise to take a page from you book of creativity! Thanks again dear heart!
