Dallas (TNT): What To Expect From The Final Episodes Of The Season & The Loss Of Larry Hagman

PaleyFest 2013 brought TNT’s reboot of Dallas to a theatre full of adoring fans. Will Keck, a Dallas fanatic and TV Guide senior editor and columnist, opened with his ode to Dallas which included bringing out his J.R. Ewing musical statue. In keeping with the campiness of the show, in moments before the cast came out, the camera would cut to the statue whenever there was a mention of star Larry Hagman, who died on November 23, 2012.

Last week's episode used recycled footage to set up the death of J.R., but thanks to digital technology, those scenes took on a different look and feel and were scarcely noticeable. Now with Monday's (March 11) episode, the show has said goodbye to one of television's greatest characters by building another mystery around his death. Not only is it an appropriate sendoff for J.R., but it's also possibly reinvigorating for the show.Season 2 has occasionally felt overly interested in the minutiae of John Ross' and Christopher's competing visions for Ewing Energies.
