As promised, here is the media for the final two episodes of season two of DALLAS. I still don’t know what to make out of the finale. I was hoping Cythia Cidre wouldn’t go full hog on making Harris a full blown villain. Certainly the way Mitch was playing so much subtext. I was also hoping with Judith (Judith Light) out of the picture, we’d see more of Harris’ backbone in terms of how he conducted himself. And can I say how absolutely I hate with a passion Emma and Ann (Emma Bell and Brenda Strong). I just wanted to smack the smirk off of her face in the jailhouse scene. What bothers me is that Ann was convicted of attempted murder of Harris, yet who is the one in prison? Yeah, so what. Harris was doing illegal stuff, but I really don’t think Cidre has thought this through. She’s sort of taken the punch out of the character with him being so easy to manipulate and in a way, fall. Though Cidre in a just released interview stated this:

Keck’s Exclusives: Dallas Finale Burning Questions

TV Guide Magazine: What is in Ryland’s briefcase that Emma stole for John Ross?
Cidre: We have discussed that ad nauseum and have a lot of ideas. There is a lot of fun stuff in there.

TV Guide Magazine: Are Cliff, Ryland and Drew all gone from the show?
Cidre: Oh gosh, no.

TV Guide Magazine: What are you being told about a third season?
Cidre: Nothing except, ‘Hang in there; we love you.’

TV Guide Magazine: Why is the decision taking so damn long?
Cidre: There are some TNT negotiations. I don’t think it’s personal. They couldn’t be nicer to us.

TV Guide Magazine: What are you hoping to explore in a third season?
Cidre: Obviously the Elena/Joaquin relationship. John Ross and Pamela’s marriage. John Ross/Emma. Emma/Judith. Judith/Ryland. Christopher without Elena.

TV Guide Magazine: Any new characters you’re conceptualizing?
Cidre: Ann has to have relatives we haven’t met yet. She may have a brother.

While she may have Harris in her future plans for DALLAS, I don’t see how she can strip away the taint that is on the character. My hope was he be above the Ewing/Barnes feud. For the most part Bobby (Patrick Duffy) framed an innocent man of murder, yet Harris gets shot and cannot get a win against the Ewings. And I mean seriously, did they have to redo Mitch as Hoarce Pinker in SHOCKER? Enough bitching.

Did anyone else shed a tear or six? I know I did. What an amazing send off for the iconic J.R. Ewing and for Larry Hagman. I was fine until the graveside scene with Sue Ellen where she confessed she’d always love him. Linda Gray did an exceptional job with that scene. Patrick Duffy (Bobby Ewing) and Josh Henderson (John Ross Ewing) were standouts. I loved everything Josh did with John Ross and how controlled he was throughout the episode, but you could see how he just wanted to break down. Patrick? What’s to say except that last scene where he went into J.R.’s bedroom and poured that Bourbon and Branch then sat down on the end of the bed and cried…ugh! What an amazing send off!

Only one scene with Mitch last night, but the scene where Bum (Kevin Page) brought that box and had goodies for Bobby, John Ross and Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe) and implicating Harris in a lot of stuff, I thought, “Roh oh!” and did a Scooby Doo double take. I’m wondering though what all that might be. Are they setting Harris up to take the fall? I have a theory about who Harris’ father might be, but I might keep that to myself for a bit. And how about that car Mitch was driving? More about that in another post.

So sorry this post is late. I had a family issue crop up and it couldn’t be avoided. Also I had trouble with the clip. It just wasn’t working properly and likely still isn’t. My apologies. That being said, gosh that episode went quickly. I almost got whiplash with the amount of twists and turns particularly in how Ann (Brenda Strong) confessed to shooting Harris. Again, Judith Light as Harris’ mother was just just amazing. I love seeing this woman twist a scene and make it something else. I tweeted @EmmaBell17 about how cool it is to be Mitch Pileggi’s daughter. She said “Pretty friggin cool.” How cool is she? I was also glad Mitch and Larry Hagman (JR Ewing) were at least in the same scene together. Considering how much menace Morrissey brought to JR in that asylum it was good to see JR seeing what kind of a “menace” Harris Ryland is becoming to his family, particularly to baby brother Bobby (Patrick Duffy). All in all a great episode centred around our guy Mitch. I couldn’t be happier.

I finally have the updates for Mitch’s premiere of season two of DALLAS. And if you haven’t already seen, we have a new layout…finally! That was the surprise. I thought I’d newly mint one with the beginning of 2013 and the return of DALLAS. So here are the new screencaps and clips. Enjoy. Let me know in the comments what you thought of Mitch. I have to say that without a doubt Harrison Ryland is a bastard…but a loveable one played to scenery chewing delight by Mitch. Thanks Mitch for proving what we’ve always known, you are an amazing actor. And what about the last scene in episode two where Bobby (Patrick Duffy) goes and meets Mama Ryland played by the amazing Judith Light? I can hardly wait to see the sparks fly between Judith and Mitch.

I was finally able to get a hold of Mitch’s DALLAS aftershow rouhdup episode. Here Mitch along with DALLAS veteran Patrick Duffy (Bobby Ewing) and newbie Brenda Strong (Ann Ryland Ewing) discuss the sixth episode The Enemy of my Enemy and the debut of Mitch’s character Harris Ryland. Some funny moments here.
