Dallas Review: Liars in Lingerie

at .  Updated at .

Emma Ryland was "Playing Chicken" in her own naughty way on Dallas Season 3 Episode 3. But her version involved barely their bikinis and dueling lingerie. 

The girl really has no shame, and thank goodness for that. Watching her torment John Ross is so much fun, but the girl certainly doesn't play fair. She may have outfitted Pamela with the same green outfit but it didn't have the garter belt and stockings.

You can hardly call that a fair fight. 

Maybe the lingerie incident was enough of a shock to set John Ross straight…but I doubt it. I also doubt Emma would let him walk away even if he wanted to. 

I have to say I was proud of Annie when Sue Ellen told her she suspected Emma and John Ross were having an affair. Most mothers would immediately defend their daughters but Annie now knows her child well enough to realize the type of trouble she's capable of.

For someone with such a devious brain, you'd think Emma would be smart enough to take the warning about her own safety. Perhaps someone can explain to her what happens to people targeted by a Mexican drug cartel. 

After Sue Ellen's dinner with Baum, I had no doubt he'd break. He truly cares for the family and the guilt was just too much for him. I can't wait to see how Sue Ellen handles Emma. It should be a lot of fun. 

In other South Fork news, Bobby fought John Ross with a Lesser Prairie chicken. It's not exactly a cock fight but it'll get the job done. 

I'd hoped that Rhonda would call Bobby after Nicolas' visit to her salon and I wasn't disappointed. I was also relieved that Baum had covered his tracks with the security footage at the shooting range. The Ewings are not amateurs at this.

Poor Elena was feeling down and almost ready to give up when pseudo-brother Nicolas stepped in to boost her spirits. Since the two were raised as almost brother and sister that definitely made me cringe. And as if that weren't bad enough, he's got a wife and kids back in Mexico. Weasely bastard.

When Christopher noted in this Dallas quote that…

Lack of integrity is a chronic condition. People aren't unethical only once, either in business or in life.


He wasn't kidding. 

Thankfully, Christopher's trip to Mexico gave him more information on Nicolas' past, or at least the knowledge that he's hiding it. I can't wait for him to uncover the connection to Elena's family. 

But it appears there's a wedding on the horizon. Will John Ross and Pamela actually make it to the altar? Will Emma try to get in the way? Will there end up being a fist fight in the pool? We'll have to wait for next week to find out.

Your turn, TV Fanatics. Who do you think looked better in the green lingerie?
