That almost everyone in "Love and Family" doubted those they loved wasn't a surprise - but the final I Do was a shocker.
Drew came clean to Elena and she was furious. He was pleading with her. If Ryland had him beaten in front of his own daughter it wasn't much of a stretch to believe he would have killed Elena and made Drew watch. Unfortunately, his sister wasn't very sympathetic as she snarled at her brother in this Dallas quote...
Drew: You take the job, it's don't ask, don't tell.
Elena: Spoken like a stupid mule. | permalink
The news put Elena in a horrible position. The bomb Drew delivered killed Christopher's unborn children. Suddenly the conversation Bobby had had with John Ross in "A Call to Arms" became relevant for Christopher and Elena. Would she chose her family or his?
In the end, she did a bit of both. She ran to Bobby and confessed her brothers sins, mostly in the hope that they could protect him. But later with her brother on the run she lied to Christopher, actively deceiving him in order to help Drew.
There's been an awful lot of lies between this pair on Dallas Season 2. If Christopher finds out about her deception, will it be the end of their romance?
For now, Christopher's got other concerns. Was that Pamela in that photo? Like Bobby said, it's been decades and she supposedly had plastic surgery. Toward the end of the original series a woman showed up claiming to be Pamela... but was that really her?
Could Pamela be dead? Perhaps Cliff is paying someone to pretend to be his sister so those Barnes Global shares don't ever get handed down to Christopher. I wouldn't put it past him. Or maybe she's alive and well and enjoying the skiing in Switzerland. It really is anyone's guess.
When the news broke about Drew it didn't take Emma long to figure out her Daddy was behind it. Like any good abuser, Harris turned it all back on Emma. None of this would have happened if she'd only listened and done what she was told. Then he plied his daughter with more pills.
I was actually kind of proud of Emma when she lashed out at her mother for leaving her alone in that stroller all those years ago. It may have been long ago but she's got the right to be angry as she told Ann…
You escaped. You did four years. I did 20. | permalink
But I was equally proud of Ann for finding her backbone and making her daughter spend the night in jail, something the girl obviously didn't see coming. The big question is, just how long can she keep Harris from finding out and riding to his little girl's rescue?
I found it interesting that Pamela had no idea that her Aunt Catherine willed her 33 and 1/3 percent of Barnes Global to Cliff. On some level Cliff must have felt truly guilty over the pain he's caused his daughter. That's the only reason I can come up with for him giving her those shares.
John Ross and Pamela certainly disprove the theory that opposites attract. They have a great deal in common and make one hot couple, not to mention the fact that they've actually grown to care about one another.
Yet, when they ended up at the altar I was shocked. I never saw that one coming.
John Ross: Are you doing this because you love me or because you hate your father?
Pamela: I do. | permalink
I can't imagine anything making Cliff more furious than his daughter marrying J.R.'s son. I cannot wait to see his face when he finds out.
Bobby's smile as he handed Cliff the keys to Ewing Energies and walked away only made me more curious to find out about J.R.'s master plan. And as we head into next week's two-hour finale we're promised the big reveal of who killed J.R.
I don't know about you but I truly can't wait.
