'Dallas' recap: A Kick in the Cattle Baron's Balls
Before all this, though, J.R. makes his re-debut at the annual Cattle Baron's Ball. Bobby is surprised to learn J.R. isn't mad about selling Southfork. J.R. makes fake-nice with Bobby and his little brother buys it. J.R. also makes nice (for real, probably) with Sue Ellen, who continues to look like she just stepped out of a women's fitness magazine. Attendees at the ball encourage her to run for governor of our great state, laying out future plot lines of potential awesomeness.
Elena breaks up with John Ross over that whole email thing, but keeps him on as her business partner. This gets sticky when she also decides to work with Christopher on ways to drill for methane that aren't so murderously prone to earthquakes. Or something. Honestly, everything involving that little love triangle is kind of a snooze so far. Possibly more interesting is the revelation that Christopher's new bride and her brother are working some kind of long con on the Ewing family. Stay tuned for the full weecap.
