Ann (to J.R.): In my wildest imagination, I never thought you could stoop to this.

J.R.: Well Annie, you're just gonna have to work on your imagination.

Another classic J.R. line right there.

Love that Christopher is growing a pair. Have to say the plot lines are all moving along quickly. Didn't expect the wife to be exposed till, like, next season.

Re: The All-New DALLAS!

But all his growing a pair means is that he's yelling at the wrong people.

That poor girl.

JR barely does more than whisper and the worlds explode.

Okay, so maybe Christopher 'tricked" his way into finding dirt on John Ross but those people he duped need to be fired for gross negligence. I've been at jobs that information has to remain confidential and you do not tell people shit who just walk in off the street.

John Ross has JR's power of attorney.

He can just sell the land back to Bobby for a dollar.

And considering how he was fucked over by his pappy, I assumed that that was what he was going to do before Christopher started with the blackmail.

This particular world - "Dallas" - couldn't exist without him.

He is THE MAN.

And, of course, he's friends with Jerry Jones.

That explains bunches.

Re: The All-New DALLAS!

Oh no.

I was talking about Elena, when he's all posturing forcing 20,000 dollars on her like she's a whore.

He was trying to establish there was nothing between them but business, and as such he was compensating her for her expertise. I agree he could have been a little nicer about it, but from a business standpoint paying her was the right thing to do.

Re: The All-New DALLAS!

Christopher's being so rude to Elena was also a way for him to push her away so he wouldn't be tempted to resume his love affair with her - he loves Rebecca and chose her, but also knew enough about himself and Elena that having their closeness resurrected would only make things more difficult and tempting for both of them.

I haven't seen episode 5 yet, so that may all have changed. But that was the impression I got when I saw the scene with him paying her off.

From a business point of view all he had to give her was a dollar.

Maybe I'm just not seeing as much depth to the character as y'all are.

Re: The All-New DALLAS!

If Christopher wants to explain himself to Elena, why doesn't he simply tell her that he was trying to be a good husband and push her away, to remove temptation from his marriage which has now gone kaboom. Poor boy is guilty of nothing but bad timing.

I'm far from familiar with the legal process for turning property over to an environmental trust, but I would assume that Bobby signed some kind of document saying stuff like "this property is held in trust and will not be developed in any way, such as by having oil wells sunk all over it." In which case, all the legal shenanigans are moot - JR can't legally own the property since he is not a trust (the mind boggles) and even if he transferred it to a trust in his name, the prohibition on development still stands. I'd also think there would be some language about the property not being sale-able to any other entity, and certainly not one that would just go ahead and develop it.

And if Bobby didn't even bother to read what he signed and make sure it said something about "no development, ever," he deserves to get screwed out of the property.

Bobby didn't "turn it over" to the trust. He sold it. It thus became the trust's property to do with as it pleased, including sell it to somebody else who wouldn't honor the trust's or Bobby's wishes. The only way to prevent it would be a codicil in the original sales agreement to prevent the resale of the property. The only way the resale to JR could be legal would be if that codicil didn't exist, and, as we now know, the resale to JR was legal.
