Season 2 Episode 7
Air Date:  December 16, 1981

Recap:  Krystle is being rushed to the hospital, she is in a lot of pain and is crying, while Blake is trying to tell her that everything will be alright.
   Fallon is still with Nick, she finds a picture of him and his younger brother.  He asks her if she is going to leave, but she doesn’t care how late it’s getting.  He wants her to go, but she doesn’t take any of his hints seriously, she tells him she wants to know what’s he’s hiding.
  Jeff gets to the hospital, he asks how Krystle is doing.  Blake asks him about Fallon, he tells him that she didn’t come home yet.  He tells Blake how sorry he is about what Cecil did then he tells him that he quit ColbyCo.  Blake wants him to come work at Denver Carrington, he tells him that none of his children are here, he like a son to Blake.  Jeff goes to get coffee, and while he’s gone Blake starts to remember moments with Krystle, where they are talking about having a baby, and about the baby.
   Alexis calls the hospital and tries to get information about how Krystle is doing, but they won’t tell her anything, and hang up on her, the funniest thing was when they asked her if she was family, she said no, but she’s the first Mrs. Carrington, so she has a right to know how Krystle is doing. 
   Sammy Jo and Steven are at a party, they are all friends of hers.  They are all jerks, and get him to go racing, by taunting him.
   At the hospital the doctor comes out and tells Blake that Krystle is fine, but she lost the baby.  She’s under sedation and doesn’t know about the baby yet, (I bet she really does, I mean she was says she was losing the baby in the ambulance).  The doctor gives Blake even more bad news, he tells him that Krystle won’t be able to have any more children.
   Fallon gets home and Alexis gets her to come over to her studio for coffee, she asks where Fallon’s been, she tells her she went for a long ride, but Alexis knows she was with a man, and tells her that she’s been in her place and wants her to be careful.  Fallon tells her to stay out of her business.
   Krystle wakes up screaming, Blake rushes to her side, she tells him that she promises to be more careful next time, and the nurse gives her another sedative.
   Fallon is pretending to be asleep when Jeff comes into the bedroom, he asks her where she was, she tells him a different story, she was swimming at the lake, he tells her that Blake was asking where she was, and tells her about Krystle and the baby.  She says that she’s sorry for Krystle, and that she will be going to the hospital later.
   Alexis joins Claudia by the pool, she’s digging for information about Krystle.  She tells her that Krystle lost the baby, Alexis is very sweet to bring up Matthew and Lindsay, and her testimony at Blake’s trial.  Claudia wants to know what Alexis wants with her. 
   Fallon joins Blake for breakfast, she tells him that she was at the movies, and that she’s sorry that she wasn’t at the hospital.  She says that she’s going to go to the hospital later.  Blake tells her to be gentle with Krystle and that she doesn’t know that she can’t have any more children.
   Steven is racing, he’s doing pretty well, until the car behind him starts hitting him, when he stops he tells Sammy Jo that he loves racing and that he loves her, she asks him to take her somewhere where they can be alone.   They go to the cabin, and she wants him to make love to her, but he tells her he can’t, she says that he told her that he loved her, but he says that he’s not in love with her. 
   Alexis joins Blake in the study, she tells him how sorry she is about the baby, she then tells him about Sammy Jo and Steven, she wants him to help her keep Sammy Jo away from Steven.  She asks if she can go get the gift she left for the baby, he says yes.
   Nick finds Claudia at the pool, he wants to know if she’s taking the job only so she can keep up with the investigation.   She gets upset with him, she tells him that she doesn’t love Matthew anymore, she hates him and she only wants to find him so she can fight him for custody of Lindsay.  
   The doctor is with Krystle, she asks when she can have another baby, he doesn't want to tell her, and suggests she takes things one day at a time, but she knows that he's keeping something from her, and I'm pretty sure she knows what it is.
   Joseph catches Alexis in Krystle and Blake's bedroom, she's going through Krystle's perfumes, he asks what she's doing there, she tells him that she just taking the gift back, she says she's sorry about the baby, but he doesn't believe it.
   Andrew comes to see Blake after returning from Washington, he doesn't have good news for Blake, the government won't help them get the oil tankers out of the Middle East.  Alexis eavesdrops on them and hears them talking about Rashid Ahmed, they don't know where to find him, but from the look on Alexis' face I think she might have a good idea where to look.
   Sammy Jo wants to know if Steven didn't want to sleep with her because she told him she was with other guys  He tells her that it doesn't matter, and that whoever gets her will be lucky.
   Alexis calls a friend, they make small talk, but she gets to the point and asks where she can find Rashid Ahmed.  
   Steven goes to Claudia's room, he tells her that he was almost going to sleep with someone, and he stopped because he was thinking of her.  He tells her that he loves her and wants to marry her.  She tells him that she doesn't love him and that she still loves Matthew.
   Steven goes to his room and finds Blake there, he talks to him about Sammy Jo, and Steven tells him that he's old enough to make his own decisions.  Blake tells Steven that Krystle lost the baby.
   Nick is with Krystle in her hospital room, he asks why she's giving up, and he's really understanding with her (I'm being sarcastic here, he's almost yelling at her).   When he leaves he meets Fallon outside the room, he tells her that he wants to see her again, but only when he wants to, she doesn't like this arrangement, and asks if Krystle is another of his women.
Final Thoughts:  I think this episode really shows how far we've come, Blake could only get a hold of Jeff, if it was today everyone would have had a cell phone and would have been to hospital once they got the news about Krystle.  I don't get Nick's idea of counseling, he seems to get upset with Claudia and now pretty much yelling at Krystle, dude she just lost her baby, if she wants to cry for Blake too she can, I know your holding this vendetta against him, but come on.  Fallon needs to stick to one story, she's going to get caught and then what's she going to do?
Best Outfit:  This night gown is something else, I don't see anyone really wearing something like this in real life, on TV they always where these fabulous night gowns.

Sue Ellen's Sister

Season 1 Episode 24 
Air Date:   February 16, 1979

Recap:  The family is in the library, Lucy gets upset with Jock for not paying any attention to her.  He is watching Sue Ellen’s sister, Kristen play a game with JR. 
   JR tells Sue Ellen that he’s really glad that he invited Kristen to the house, he tells her that she’s really brightened the place up.  Sue Ellen accuses him of being up to something, which of course he denies.  She thinks that he’s trying to set her sister up with Bobby, so he’ll forget about Pam.
   At the pool Sue Ellen talks to Kristen about her choices and that she would have done things differently, so she could have been happy, she tells her money isn’t everything.  Kristen tells her that she will be happy and rich.  She tells her that she doesn’t like Sue Ellen because she always got all the attention, and Kristen only got her leftovers, but that all changed once Sue Ellen got married.  Lucy tells Sue Ellen that she got a phone call.  Lucy wonders out loud what JR is up to inviting Kristen to Southfork, Kristen tells her that he’s just being nice, and knew that she would be bored being with her mother in Santa Fe. 
   Cliff calls Sue Ellen, he wants her to give him information about the Palo Seco fields, she tells him that JR doesn’t talk to her about business, but she does tell him what she knows from what he’s talked about at the dinner table.
   Pam and Bobby meet up for lunch, he doesn’t like meeting up like they are having an affair, he wants her to come home, but she says she can’t yet.
   Cliff goes to see the owner of the land, he wants him to hold out, and not to give into the Ewing’s, He tells Wally that Digger will buy his leases, Wally tells him to get him the money fast and they have a deal.
   At dinner Jock asks JR about the land, and JR tells him that they will get the leases soon.
   Pam goes to see Cliff, he tells her he wants her to loan Digger $10,000, she doesn’t want to do it, he asks if Bobby closed their joint account, she tells him no he didn’t.  Cliff manages to quilt her into giving him the money.  She calls Bobby, but he’s not at the office so she leaves him a message.  She tells Cliff that it isn’t fair what he’s doing, but she will still help Digger.  When Bobby calls her back, he tells her that he doesn’t care how much money she leaned to Digger, she promises he will pay it back, he tells her not to worry about it.
   Lucy walks in on Kristen acting like she is the lady of the manor (like Sue Ellen was earlier in the season), and tells her that she reminds her of Sue Ellen, Kristen takes this as a compliment and leaves the room.
   Kristen dives into the pool with Bobby and they race each other, JR and Sue Ellen are watching them, she tells him not to use her sister as his pawn, he acts like he doesn’t know what she is talking about.
   Sue Ellen asks Kristen if she is interested in Bobby, she reminds her that he’s married, but that doesn’t bother Kristen, she tells her sister that she knows what she wants and she won’t get hurt.
   With a suggestion from JR Kristen gets a ride into Dallas with Bobby, on the ride there they talk about her interest in architecture, which I think is just a way to get to Bobby.  He drops her off telling her that she can get a ride back to the ranch if she gets to the office at 5.
   Cliff gives Wally the check for the $10,000, he thinks it’s pretty funny that Cliff is using the Ewing money to beat the Ewing’s.
   JR gets a call about the money coming from Pam.  He goes to Bobby and tells him what his wife has done.  Bobby insists she didn’t know anything about it, and of course JR doesn’t believe this.  Bobby says that he’ll take care of it, JR tells him that he better.
   Bobby goes to Cliff, but he’s out of the office. 
   Kristen gets to the office, she is looking for Bobby, JR tells her that he’s out, but he’ll give her a ride home.  He tells her how much better Bobby’s doing now that she’s there, and he tells her that his marriage is over. 
   Bobby goes to see Pam, he tells her what Cliff has done, she says that Cliff wouldn’t have done it to her, he tells her that she needs to face the facts that Cliff is out to get the Ewing’s, and that she is blind to the fact that Cliff is just as bad as JR.  He tells her it’s time for her to grow up, he leaves her.
   Bobby tells JR and Jock that he went to Cliff’s office but he wasn’t there, and that Pam didn’t know what Cliff was going to do, which JR still doesn’t believe.  Jock tells Bobby that if Pam had stayed out of it none of this would have happened.  Bobby says that he’ll talk to Cliff and Wally.
   Pam calls Bobby later, she tells him she tried to talk to Cliff, but couldn’t find him, he tells her that Cliff is hiding from the both of them.  She asks if they can meet for lunch, but he tells her no.
   Bobby finally finds Cliff, he wants Cliff to call Wally and call the deal off, but he won’t do it, he wants to cause the Ewing’s problems, and even though he likes Bobby he’s still a Ewing.  Bobby tells Cliff that if he doesn’t stay out of his marriage, then he will help JR get him.
   Kristen and Lucy see Bobby come home, she tells Kristen to stop wasting her time with Bobby, if she wants a good time then she needs to go after JR, she acts like she doesn’t know what Lucy is talking about.  Kristen goes to Bobby’s room and asks him if he wants to play tennis with her, telling him that everyone is out.  He tells her he’s got to go to a meeting, but then tells her to come along and they can play after the meeting.
   Bobby talks to Wally and offers him 21%, Wally wants 25%, but Bobby tells him that the offer is 21%, he tells him to think it over and get back to him.
   Back at home, JR finds Kristen in the library, he asks her about her day, Bobby walks in on them he sees JR's hand on her leg, she leaves and Bobby wants to know what he’s doing, he says she’s only a child, and that she’s Sue Ellen’s sister, if Kristen was listening hearing that Bobby thought of her only as a kid, that’s probably not what she wants to hear.
   JR, Jock and Bobby are at the Ewing Oil office, Wally comes and signs over the leases to them, he tells JR that he would have taken less money if he hadn’t railroaded him.
   Wally goes to Cliff and tells him what he did.  Pam comes into Cliff’s office, and after Wally leaves she confronts Cliff.  He wants to know why she’s so upset, this I pretty sure makes her ever more angry then she was already.  She tells him that she’s mad because he exhorted money from her, and lied to her about it.  She tells him she can’t tell the difference between him and JR.
   Bobby gets home and JR tells him that Pam has been calling him, he calls her back and she tells him that Cliff lied to her, and that she should have believed him when he told her what Cliff had done.
   JR walks into Kristen’s room, he’s pretty creepy standing there, telling her that Bobby’s home.  She goes to the library and tells Bobby that she couldn’t sleep, she asks him what’s wrong, she says that he doesn’t look happy, she kisses him.  He tells her that he shouldn’t have done that, and that he can only offer her his friendship.  She tells him that it’s not enough, but he was worth it.  Lucy is on the stairs and tells her she heard everything, she said I told you so.  Kristen asks what she is going to do.  Lucy tells her that she won’t do anything if she leaves.  Kristen gets back to her room and finds Sue Ellen there, she asks her if she was with Bobby.  Kristen tells her that nothing happened, Sue Ellen tells her that she needs to go back to their mother.
   JR wakes up when Sue Ellen gets back to their room, she tells him that things aren’t going his way, because Kristen is leaving and that Bobby got Wally to sign the leases over to the Ewing’s.
   Bobby and Pam meet up, he tells her that he loves her, she says that if they could only go somewhere else then they could be together, but not at Southfork.  He tells her that if they run away then JR and Cliff would both win, and that she needs to decide soon if they are going to be apart or together.
Final Thoughts:  Sue Ellen's sister is annoying, and Pam just needs to get over it and get back with Bobby already, Cliff is just as bad as JR and it's about time she realizes this, which she has, but I guess she just can't admit it or want to face JR, but enough already.
Best Outfit:  Wow those pants are way tight, and want are they made off?

   Chase and Maggie go to Angela’s, Julia is about to tell them that she knows why Carl backed out, but is stopped by Angela.  Chase wants Angela to pay more than her original offer since Carl’s offer was higher than hers was, but she tells him that she’ll wait till his crop comes in to be sure that it will be a good harvest after all.  She suggests that they go to the bank to ask for a loan.  Julia tells her that she’s got them right where she wants them.
   At the bank the vice president is with Chase and Maggie he tells them that he’ll get back to them the next day, but he’s sure that they will get the loan.

   They invite Angela, Lance and Julia to their house to give them the news.  Angela is very surprised by the news, but you can see that this isn’t the news that she was expecting.  The only one who’s happy about the news is Julia.
Final Thoughts:  I'm a bit confused how Chase knows that Angela wants his land and for him to fail, I don't know if I missed something in a previous episode or not.
Best Outfit:  I wish I could have seen this from the front, it ugly from the back so I'm sure it's just as ugly in the front.

   Willie Joe and Jeb are at JR’s office and tell him how sorry they are about Julie, JR tells them to get to the point.  They are concerned about what she had from the red file.  JR tells them that they have nothing to worry about.

   Bobby goes to the jail to meet Pam, he asks how Cliff is doing, she tells him that he’s fine under the circumstances.  She tells Bobby that she can’t go back to Southfork, and that she’s confused about what she’s feeling, he asks if she’s confused about her feeling for him, she says not, but that she won’t go back.  He tells her he’s going to see Cliff.

   Cliff is with his lawyer, when Bobby comes in.  Bobby asks if there is anything he can do.  Cliff tells him that the Ewing’s have done enough.  Bobby insists that he wants to help, so Cliff tells him the best thing he can do is find out who really killed Julie.

   They are having an inquest to see if there is enough evidence to go to the grand jury, the DA is questioning the coroner, they talk about the bruises found on Julie’s body, Cliff’s lawyer asks if it’s possible that she caused the bruises herself.  The police report about all the fingerprints they found of Cliff’s in her apartment, but that they didn’t find any on the roof.  Julie’s neighbor tells them that he rode up with her on the elevator and that he walked right inside.  When its JR’s turn to take the stand Sue Ellen wants to leave, but he makes her stay telling her she needs to act the perfect wife for the court.  They question JR about the files she took from Ewing Oil and her affair with Cliff. 

   During recess Bobby asks if the tape will be admissible.  Cliff wants Pam to get his mail, but she will have to take the stand soon, so Bobby goes for her.  He brings back the mail and a new shirt for Cliff.  Cliff gets the letter from Julie, inside it’s a pawn ticket and a key.  Bobby offers to check into it, Cliff thinks about it a minute, but gives it to him.

  Bobby goes to the pawn shop and gets the suitcase that Julie pawned, when he gets outside he opens the brief case he finds all the copies from the red file, then he finds the copy of the will.

   On the stand Pam is asked about Julie and Cliff, and about all of Cliff’s affairs, she doesn’t say anything about Sue Ellen.  Cliff doesn’t let his lawyer cross examine her, she apologizes to him, he tells her she did what she had to.

   At Ewing Oil Bobby sends both secretaries home, and goes into JR’s office, he’s on the phone, but Bobby disconnects the call and confronts JR with the copies of the files.  JR tells Bobby that the forged will was just a business maneuver.  Bobby asks him if he had anything to do with Julie, he tells Bobby that he had the private investigator tapping Cliff’s phones, and that’s how he knew about the call.  Bobby goes to the office of the private investigator and gets him to tell him who else knew about the phone call Julie made to Cliff, he has to threaten him to get him to reveal that he told Willie Joe and Jeb about the phone call.

   When Bobby gets to Willie Joe and Jeb’s office their secretary tells Bobby that they went to the airport to go to Alaska, he gets her to call the airport, he takes the phone and asks for security, he asks the security guard to hold Willie Joe and Jeb till he gets there.  He gives the secretary money to buy more of her perfume.

   Back at the court house, Cliff asks Pam if Bobby is back, they don’t think that they can stop the tape from being admitted into the trial, because Julie knew that she was being recorded on Cliffs’ answering machine.

   At the airport the security guard pulls Willie Joe and Jeb out of the line and takes them to his office, when Bobby gets there he goes out to the hall.  Bobby confronts them with the copies, they say that if he goes to the police with the copies that JR will get in to as much trouble as them, but Bobby says that it’s only copies of checks and other bribes with their names on it, JR is clean.  They admit that it was only an accident.  Bobby tells them that they better confess or he’ll give the police the copies and it will be murder one not manslaughter.

   Cliff is released and cleared of all charges, he asks Bobby what he did, and what he found at the pawn shop.  He tells him that there was nothing at the pawn shop, whatever it was, was sold.  Bobby tells him to forget it, but Cliff tells him that he can’t do that.  He knows that whatever it was JR was behind it.

   At Ewing Oil, JR follows Bobby into the office, he wants to know if Bobby is going to tell Jock about the will, Bobby burn both copies and tells him that he won’t but he’s got JR’s number.  JR tells Bobby that he’s lost all his power with the cartel.

   Pam and Bobby are walking together, she asks what he found, but he won’t tell her what he found out either.  He wants her to come back to Southfork now that Cliff has been released, but she tells him she can’t because she can’t see across from JR at the dinner table.  He tells her that she can call him when she’s ready to deal with the fact that he’s a Ewing, just like he was when she married him.

Final Thoughts:  I'm glad that this story line only lasted two episodes, I thought it was a better than the first half.  I thought the court scenes were better written than the court scenes on Dynasty were. 

Best Outfit:  I couldn't find anything that I really thought was hideous, this is bad, but it just looks really cheap.

   JR checks in with his private investigator, he tells JR about Cliff’s phone calls, and that Sue Ellen hasn’t called him.
   Bobby confronts JR about section 40, but somehow JR manages not to tell Bobby anything.
   Julie calls Cliff, leaving him a message that he was right and that she is ready to give him what he wants.  She takes a safety deposit key that was taped to the bottom of the drawer and puts it in an envelope and mails it.
   The man listening to the phone calls, calls Willie Joe or Jeb, I’m not sure who is who, and tells him about Julie’s call to Cliff.

   JR gets the recording of Julie’s message to Cliff, the private investigator tells JR that he can’t use it because it was obtained illegally, but JR calls the police and tells them about Cliff’s answering machine and that Julie left a message. 
   The police are going to play the recording and tell Cliff that they are going to arrest him.  Pam goes to visit Cliff, he tells her that Julie’s message sounded like he was blackmailing her, but he thinks that JR has framed him.
   Pam gets home and confronts JR about framing Cliff, she goes upstairs and packs, she tells Bobby that she just needs to get away for awhile, JR and Sue Ellen are watching as she leaves.  Sue Ellen asks him how he could do it
Final Thought:  JR has got to get rid of those two, they are nothing but trouble.  You have to feel bad for Cliff, but I don't get why he would automatically think that JR is framing him, he would have to know that JR had his phone's tapped.  I'm probably looking to much into it.

Best Outfit:  JR has an ascot for the morning and one for the office.
Fight Count:  2 (Ray vs Charlie Waters and Gang) (Pam vs JR)
