    Dallas Recap: Blame Game.

    Monday, February 25 2013

    Bobby testifies about how he met Ann during her hearing. He calls her the most caring, compassionate person he knows and pleads with the jury to see the larger truth of what happened. Judge calls recess and Harris gets a dig in at Bobby and Ann before she is cuffed and led off.

    Emma surprises Ann in prison. Ann tells her about a time when she got highlights but panicked on the way home about how Harris would react. She was so afraid of upsetting him she dyed it back before he got home, but he knew and was furious anyway. She promises Emma it will get easier.

    In court Ann and Lou worry when Bobby doesn’t show up. Ann testifies to Harris’ mental abuse and kidnapping of their daughter. She apologizes to Emma and begs her for a second chance. Harris testifies and asks the jury to put her behind bars for a very long time. It goes to jury and Ann is even more worried about Bobby. Later, Ann is sentenced to probation. Judith demands a mistrial and the judge can’t take anymore. He tells Harris he might have shot him too if he had done the same to him.

    Everyone watches the clock at Southfork. Elena asks John Ross why he did it and he tells her she broke his heart. The day she topped seeing the good in him was the day that it died. Meanwhile, Bobby encourages Sue Ellen to give back Elena’s shares. Later, Pamela asks John Ross if she was really just revenge sex and he tells her that was all he could afford. Chris returns with the prototype and Cano decides to take Elena with him. John Ross starts a fight to distract inside. Outside, Drew sees what is going on, gets a gun and shoots Cano as Chris covers Elena to protect her.

    Dallas Recap: Trial And Error.

    Monday, February 18 2013

    Judith calls for hospital security as Ann demands Ryland tell the cops the truth – that she shot him, not Bobby. He refuses. This is the price she has to pay for thinking she could live in a world without his tender, loving care. He tells her to kiss Bobby goodbye. She sees Emma on her way out, and she has heard the whole thing. Emma asks Harris why he told the cops it was Bobby if he knew it was Ann. He blames it on the coma and Judith reminds her it is not her place to question. Outside, Ann drops her keys and notices blood splatter across the toes of her boots.

    Ann goes to the cops, drops her boots on the counter and confesses to shooting Harris.

    One month later, the trial against Ann begins and the courthouse is mobbed with press. Court is called to session and Judith is first on the stand. She testifies that Ann stayed out late, spending money and picking up men. Once she was pregnant all Ann wanted was an abortion. Lou objects, calling Judith's testimony biased. The judge agrees and asks Judith to step down. She is distraught and the judge threatens to hold her in contempt. He calls a recess. Outside, John Ross calls Clyde, who lets him know about Drew’s dirty freight runs to Laredo. Noting Sue Ellen’s morality clause, John Ross tells Clyde to take Drew down. Meanwhile, Chris and Elena find Lou prepping Pamela as a character witness. Chris accuses her of having a hand in Tommy’s murder. Pamela reminds him that Tommy hurt her. She warns Chris to stop his witch hunt or she’ll move Barnes Global, and the babies, to Bermuda. Later, she thanks John Ross for warning Cliff about Frank. Cliff loved Frank and Pamela thinks deep down maybe she hated him for that. John Ross tries to comfort her but she pulls back. Cliff thinks they are no good together and she ends it. He seems upset. Later, Sue Ellen urges JR to forgive John Ross. Meanwhile, Christopher and Bobby see Mr. Cano being led out and find he has an extradition hearing. Cano reminds Christopher of their unfinished business as he is led off. Back in session, testimony from police and forensics casts doubt on Ann’s crime of passion plea. Sue Ellen and Pamela testify on Ann’s behalf.

    In the court bathroom, JR is inclined to forgive John Ross when they get the news that Drew was arrested. Later, Harris testifies that Ann left the baby at home alone while she got drunk. He took Emma to protect her. Then Ann testifies that Harris was the first person to pay attention to her and they were happy. Judith began to interfere and made Harris believe she was seeing other men. He then tried to control her like he had been controlled. She realized the marriage was a mistake. After Emma was born she was diagnosed with post partum depression and put on medication. She left the baby with Judith so she could go see a divorce lawyer. When Harris learned about the divorce he forced her to see a doctor who gave her more meds. The day of the fair she took a few more pills than she should have and couldn’t think straight. She left Emma in her stroller and went to get a soda. When she turned back, Emma was gone.

    Outside the courthouse, Christopher urges Emma to make things right and tell the truth – not someone else’s, but her own. Later, Emma testifies that she heard Ann say she shot Harris and wished he was dead. Harris has the biggest heart in the world. She wakes up every morning grateful that she was rescued from her mom. During recess, Chris tells Pamela he agrees to mediation for the children. She lets him feel the babies kick and he starts to cry.

    At a restaurant, Ann, Bobby, Chris, Lou and Sue Ellen wait for the jury to reconvene. Ann is heartbroken by Emma’s testimony. Lou gets the call that court reconvenes in the morning.
