Dallas Recap: Love & Family.

Monday, April 08 2013
Drew goes on the run, Emma has a wreck, and Pamela convinces Cliff to give her something big.


Pamela accesses Barnes Global’s website from her apartment. She needs to find something on her father and John Ross assures her they will. They make love.

Cliff meets Harris at home and gives him a check to get his company back from Judith. He is sure the Ewings won’t get the money they need in time to pay the fine, but Harris warns him how persistent they are. Cliff isn’t worried.

At Ewing Energies Sue Ellen tells Bobby that Bum can’t find Ken. Pamela comes in with John Ross and tells them she can’t find anything in Cliff’s files. Chris tells everyone it appears his mother has been signing checks in Switzerland for years. Chris tells Pamela that the other Pamela owns a third of Barnes Global. Pamela had no idea. Bobby knows all Cliff cares about is his business and that is how they will bring him down.


Emma struggles with her horse at Southfork and Ann intervenes. She asks Emma about her behavior, missing lessons and meals, staying out all night. Ann wants to be there for her. Emma stomps off.

Chris looks over pictures of Harris’ trucks at home and worries to Elena about the fine. She looks over the pictures and realizes it was the truck Drew was driving.

Elena goes to Drew’s place and demands the truth. He tells her he built the bomb for Harris. They told him they would kill Elena if he didn’t. She tells him he has to turn himself in but he will pay a price. She leaves and he pulls a bag of stolen shoes out from under his bed – and a gun.

Ann prepares lunch in the kitchen but Emma isn’t hungry. Bobby asks what is going on and she tells him about the pills. They hug and Elena rushes in with news. Chris, Bobby and Elena run to Drew’s place but he is gone, along with his gun. Drew left a confession about what he did and for whom. But they have to find him.


John Ross tells Pamela about the bomb at her place as Cliff arrives unannounced. John Ross hides as she gets Cliff out.

At lunch, Cliff gives Pamela some diamond and emerald earrings that belonged to her aunt Katherine. Bum listens in on a wire. She wants to be a partner in Barnes Global and demands her due. He clinks glasses with her.

Harris, Cliff and the governor watch the news and see that Harris’ man Roy is arrested and an alert is out on Drew. The governor is livid but Cliff thinks this will only accelerate their access to Ewing. There is no evidence against them.

Emma visits Harris at home and accuses him of using Drew to make the bomb to get him away from her. She demands to know what he did with Judith and he tells her she is getting round the clock care. He has more pills for Emma, but she has to pack up her things at Southfork. She agrees.



Roy is brought up on charges at court. He pleads not guilty and since there is no evidence the judge dismisses charges.

Later, Bobby tells John Ross that Roy disappeared after court. He has had Bum following Cliff and tells him he gave Pamela one third of Barnes Global. John Ross is surprised. Bobby wants her shares but is not sure he should ask John Ross to do anything about it. John Ross knows this isn’t about love. It’s about family survival. A sheriff comes by and takes them to a wreck Emma had under the influence. Ann approaches her but Emma accuses Ann of escaping Harris and Judith without her. Ann blames herself for not doing anything when she learned about her drug problem. Emma is arrested and Ann refuses to bail her out until she agrees to rehab.


Carmen and Elena worry at home. Drew calls Elena and tells her he has to find Roy before he comes back. But he needs money. Carmen begs Elena to help him. She agrees. Later, she lies to Chris. He looks at her phone and sees the unknown number.

John Ross waits for Pamela at home. She comes in and tells him about Cliff’s gift. She is concerned when he isn’t happy and he tells her he thinks she is pulling one over on him. She promises she could never side with Cliff after he killed her babies. He isn’t worried about Cliff, but her once she has her power. She gives him her word but he wants action.

Elena and Carmen meet Drew in a field. They give him $5,000 and an untraceable phone. He promises to find Roy and make things right. He asks Elena to find oil and make their father proud.

Chris gets a call at home and runs to his computer. He gets Bobby and Ann and tells them someone saw Pam and they are emailing over a picture. Her face is partially hidden, and after the car accident, Bobby can’t tell if it is really her. Chris is on the next flight to Zurich. Elena wants to go with him and he agrees. Later, Sue Ellen meets Bobby and tells him Ken is still missing and no one will cover their loan. Bobby is not used to doing things the way JR did and tells Sue Ellen that JR had a plan. John Ross texts him and tells him the shares are his.

Pamela and John Ross get married at a chapel.

Cliff arrives at Ewing Energies the next morning for his money. Bobby hands over the keys to Ewing Energies instead and tells him not to get too comfortable. They both wish they could see the look on JR’s face right now.

Hollie’s thoughts:
Who else is on board for the little Bobby and John Ross pairing we have been seeing develop? These two play off each other as good as JR and Bobby in their heyday while Christopher continues to come off as the outsider that he kind of is. The lies between him and Elena are sure to cost them something, but only time will tell what. And what about Pam? Do you think that was really her in the surveillance footage? Let us know in the comments below.
