‘Dallas’ Episode Guide (Aug. 25): News of the Family Death Spreads

“Dead Reckoning” (08/25/14) – The dark cloud over Southfork continues to grow with the news of a family death. Meanwhile, Christopher and Heather’s relationship is put to the test as John Ross tries to redeem himself with Pamela, who begins to face the real reasons behind her overdose.

Elsewhere, Elena makes a drastic move to get justice for her family, putting John Ross directly in her crosshairs.

This episode was directed by Anton Cooper and written by Julia Cohen.

The backstabbing, two-timing, double-crossing drama of TNT’s “Dallas” is back for the second half of its third season. “Dallas” stars Patrick Duffy as Bobby Ewing, now the senior member of the Ewing family following the death of his older brother, J.R. Ewing. Linda Gray stars as Sue Ellen Ewing, J.R.’s former wife and the mother of his son, John Ross, played by Josh Henderson.

Following the death of his revered father, John Ross is out to prove he can be just as powerful an ally or enemy as his infamous father. Jesse Metcalfe is Christopher, Bobby’s adopted son who is newly single and determined to make a name for himself and his family in the world of natural gas. Jordana Brewster is Elena Ramos, the former girlfriend of both John Ross and Christopher who is now blinded by thoughts of justice for previous wrongs.

Julie Gonzalo is Pamela Rebecca Barnes, John Ross’ wife and the daughter of Cliff Barnes (guests star Ken Kercheval), a longtime rival of the Ewings. She is determined to have a happy ending with her husband and make a home on Southfork Ranch.

Brenda Strong stars as Bobby’s wife, Ann, while Mitch Pileggi is Harris Ryland, her scheming ex-husband. And Emma Bell is Emma Ryland, Ann and Harris’ daughter, who has been taught by her father and grandmother (guest star Judith Light) to distrust the world around her.

The new season also includes the addition of Juan Pablo Di Pace as a regular cast member and the return of guest stars Kuno Becker, Marlene Forte and AnnaLynne McCord.

In its second season, “Dallas” drew more than 3.8 million viewers, with 1.7 million adults 25-54. Shot on location in the title city, “Dallas” was developed by executive producer Cynthia Cidre from the series created by David Jacobs. Serving as executive producers with Cidre are Michael M. Robin, Robert Rovner and Bruce Rasmussen.
