TNT’s ‘Dallas’ season 3 spoilers: An embrace of ‘the bad,’ and why that is good

Dallas -There is nothing more entertaining on a soap than watching people do terrible things, and based on some of the early news that is out there about “Dallas” season 3, we’re going to see a good bit of that and then some.

The biggest thing to take stock in right now is the division between the winter and summer halves of the season, mostly because it sounds more and more like there is going to be a meaning to that. As executive producer Cynthia Cidre told TVLine recently, the first half of the season is going to feel a little more like an “eight-hour miniseries” than just a show that has a chunk of episodes and feel very unfinished for the entire hiatus. Given what “Breaking Bad” did in eight-episode blocks (though we would hardly compare any show to it), we at least know quite a bit is possible.

As for getting to see the dark side of some of these characters, Cidre suggests that you will see even more of that than you did in either of the first two seasons. John Ross in particular has been given some more layers, to the point where he may be even more complicated than J.R. Ewing ever was. Add to that a series of new arrivals, including a risk-taker by the name of Nicholas Trevino (a character to watch throughout the season), and you can add to some high drama breaking at South Fork Ranch at all times. Given that the ratings at times for season 2 were not always through the roof, we reckon (to speak like a true Texan for a second) that the show needs all the help it can get to drum up some buzz.
