'Dallas' recap: Mysteries of the Texas Justice System
While John Ross recuperates in the hospital, the rest of the Ewing family rallies to his aid. When Vicente threatens to take Southfork, even Bobby decides it's time to start drilling on Miss Ellie's land. The plan is to pay off Vicente by honoring his shady deal with J.R., but wussy little Christopher finally makes himself useful and offers up his methane, instead. Vicente is placated, at least for now, and hands over the secret recording. Alas, this happens too late for Sue Ellen, who has bribed and blackmailed the medical examiner who's in charge of Marta's autopsy. The doc rules it a suicide when it's clearly not and everything promises to explode in Sue Ellen's face like a freshly tapped oil well.
All these troubles have made Christopher realize that life is too short to be mad... or something... so he decides to give Rebecca another chance. He has a background check run on her and it comes up clean, which seems to surprise even Rebecca. Christopher asks her if she's keeping any other secrets and she totally lies and says she isn't. There's a big Tommy-shaped secret that threatens to ruin everything... with sexy results! Stay tuned for the full weecap.
