Regardless of whether or not you watched the original “Dallas” series, next week’s two-hour episode should make you feel a little bit nostalgic, and possibly a little sad. If we were to bet, we would say that this will probably be the end of the road for the franchise. The ratings haven’t been great, and while there may still be some classic storylines playing out, hopefully the writers got enough of an indication to tie things up going into this.
Technically, you are getting two episodes for the price of one in 3×14 (“Endgame”) and the finale (“Brave New World”), and in addition to the promo video below, the synopses should prove you with a nice opportunity to see what lies ahead.
“Endgame” – “While Christopher races to find Elena, Bobby is double-crossed by the cartel. No longer able to sit by, John Ross puts his own life on the line to attempt a rescue. Meanwhile, Nicolas tries to prove himself to Elena by making a deal with the authorities that puts him on a collision course with John Ross’ plan and places both their lives in jeopardy.”
“Brave New World” – “In the electrifying third season finale, the Ewings and the Rylands finally force the cartel to pay the piper as some lives are saved and others are lost. Bobby and Sue Ellen form a new alliance to protect the family, which pits them against John Ross, who is still trying to regain control of Ewing Global and fix his marriage to Pamela. Snd Elena is pushed to the brink when she finds out the real depths of Nicolas’ betrayal. As the season comes to an end, enemies are unmasked, new alliances are formed, and John Ross learns a shocking secret about J.R. that sends him halfway around the globe in search of a surprising new cohort.”
If there is any silver lining for diehard fans to come out of the promo below, it is that TNT is advertising it as a season and not a series finale, and maybe there is still some reason to be hopeful that we’re not aware of. Regardless of the ratings, the story here will eventually lead to one member of the Ewing family dying. Who doesn’t love a shocker?
