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.
