I feel like “Blame Game,” this week’s episode of Dallas, could have easily been titled “Just Another Day at Southfork.” JR’s terrible choices came back to bite everyone in the butt, SueEllen let herself get manipulated by the men in her life, Bobby fell for his brother’s tricks, and everyone got held at gunpoint by an escaped convict. You know, business as usual for the Ewings.
I was really hoping that the surprisingly cute bit with JR sending Bobby text messages and making him watch a video clip of a dog playing basketball might have just been a sign that no matter what, they’re still brothers. But no. It was just JR’s way of downloading a virus into Bobby’s laptop that destroyed the Cloud drive on which the evidence of the del Sol fiasco was held. Before the discovery, though, JR disappeared, leaving his son behind take the full weight of Bobby’s righteous fury.
