Mitch wasn’t on tonight’s premiere of the DALLAS continuation. I’m hoping we get to see him next week. Not much on his character but there is a write up on the TNT website on Ann Ewing (Brenda Strong). I’ve emboldened the parts that concern Mitch. More below the cut.
Ann Ewing is the third wife of Bobby Ewing. Introduced by mutual friend Sue Ellen, Bobby was instantly struck by Ann’s quiet strength and beauty. A consummate horse cutter, she fell in love with SouthFork Ranch. They quickly fell in love and married, and the pair settled in to SouthFork and began making it their own. A woman who can work a gun and ride a stallion, Ann fits right into the Ewing lineup of beautiful women who know their way around a ranch. Ann’s first marriage to big-time Texas transportation executive Harris Ryland, who is as sly as he is rich, continues to haunt Ann in her new life. But despite her past, she is a supportive wife to Bobby and has assumed her role as the new matriarch of SouthFork with dignity and grace.
This bodes well for Mitch. I like the description of him, sly as he is rich. I’m hoping the hype is well rewarded. I can’t stand to see Mitch once again underused and under appreciated. His track record in SUPERNATURAL, STARGATE: ATLANTIS, SONS OF ANARCHY and GREY’S ANATOMY are starting to make me think this guy will never get his rightful due. He’s not had a respectful and substantive role since playing Skinner on THE X-FILES. Oh how I long for Chris Carter.
