    Re: Dallas (2012 TV series)

    Just finished watching last night's ep on DVR.
    Man, JR is slick, and I'm gonna miss him.
    I loved how he was playing the part of "annoying iPad newbie" with Bobby but in the end revealed how he really played Bobby. Kudos to the writers who wrote that part of the script!

    Was this week's episode the last one featuring JR before Larry Hagman's passing? If so...

    Nonetheless, great episode...twists and turns galore as usual. Can't keep up with all the infighting and backstabbing.

    I don't know if this is the last one, or if he'll still appear on the next one. It was hard to tell from the previews exactly.

    Tonight's episode is Larry Hagman's final episode. No idea if they will have JR die in this one or in a future episode. I know I'll be crying through all of his scenes tonight.

    Wow, anyone watch tonight? JR has been shot as far as I can tell. This must be it. The rest of the episode was satisfying, but the end was hard to bear.

    I commented to friends tonight that I hoped JR would be shot. That has a nice symmetry to it.

    As I said (I think) upthread, I'm surprised at how emotional the actual death of JR - of course because it's tied to Larry Hagman's death - has made me. Over all these years since the original show was on the air I'd forgotten how terrific LH was as JR. He was just so much fun to watch.

    It felt as though Larry has already died when they put this episode together. It had that look of being pieced together--at least the JR scenes did. So good to see Gary and hope they bring back others from the original series!
    The success of this show back in the 80s must have taken the bad connotations out of the name 'Dallas', left after Kennedy's death there. Its so nice to hear that theme song every week once again, and to see familiar faces, get to know new ones.

    All of the reports about his death said that he had already shot six episodes this season when he passed. Last night was the sixth episode he'd appeared in this season. I think the only part of the episode that was changed after his death was the very end with the gunshots. Maybe they edited his scenes to seem a bit more bittersweet than originally planned

    It was at least part of it. They did not plan a contingency story should Hagman die during a filming of a season. I don't know if it was out of respect for Hagman or they just did it this way, but that would explain the choppiness of this story. The future stories reflect JR's death.
