    Dallas Returns January 28, 2013.

    Thursday, August 09 2012

    The Ewings are back. (TNT)
    The waiting game.

    Please note: If you haven't watched the season one finale of "Dallas" yet, you might want to look away, as to not be spoiled.

    It's always tricky when a beloved TV classic makes a comeback. Not all attempts are successful, but the continuation of "Dallas" was a bonafide hit, ending season one with 4.3 million viewers. In fact, Dallas was renewed for a second season just two weeks after it premiered.

    Things may have changed a little on Southfork, as season one opened to J.R. and Bobby a bit older than the last time we saw them. J.R. was even in a nursing home, seemingly incapacitated. That didn't last long though, as he rebounded for some good old-fashioned Ewing rivalry. In addition, the brothers are now fathers to adult sons John Ross and Christopher, Bobby has a new wife Ann and J.R.'s ex, Sue Ellen, is running for governor.

    The season centered on JR and John Ross pitting themselves against Bobby and Christopher for the beloved Southfork. Of course, there was still love sprinkled in amongst the family, but with the likes of Vincente, Marta and even Christopher's wife Rebecca, as well as the core family, there was a lot of backstabbing, manipulation and flat out lying going on.

    Things turned on their head as the finale saw Elena dumping John Ross and hitting the sheets with his cousin, and her ex, Christopher, who learned his pregnant wife wasn't who she said she was. Rebecca was revealed to be Ewing rival Cliff Barnes' daughter, who had been trying to bring down the Ewings all along. Ann got the upper hand on her ex Ryland and Sue Ellen ended on a recharged note pursuing her governorship. Finally, John Ross looked to his daddy for guidance on being a bad ass and screwing over his cousin Christopher.

    There's a lot to look forward to when "Dallas" returns January 28, 2013. Until then, relive what went down this season with's Dallas recaps.

    It was tough to choose one 'best'. Dynamite season finale. I did select the reveal that Rebecca is Cliff's daughter, altho' now I wonder if that should have been a no brainer. Wasn't Cliff's mom named Rebecca? Can't hardly wait till the new season in January. This new Dallas has brought forward all the stuff I loved in the past.

    If Christopher is Cliff's nephew and Becca is Cliff's daughter doesn't that make those two related. How can they have kids together I'm so confused

    Christopher is the adopted son of Bobby and Pam, so no blood ties to them or Cliff and Rebecca.

    Loved this 'nuDallas' and so glad it has been renewed for a second season. Great to see so many original cast members thoughout these 10 shows as well !
    Loved the Ann getting the better of Ryland scene...wearing a wire has been done over and over but this spin was really clever...great actress Brenda Strong !
    Can't wait for Season 2 (maybe Larry Hagman can get control of those eyebrows...and Jordanna Brewster can eat something !!;-)
