The two-hour second season finale of TNT‘s Dallas tonight promises to answer the question who killed J.R. But the bigger question is when TNT will decide the fate of its four winter original series, Dallas, drama Southland and docu-reality series Boston’s Finest, which end their seasons on Wednesday, and drama Monday Mornings, which wrapped its freshman season last Monday. Of the four, only Dallas appears to be a slam dunk for renewal. Hurt by its relocation to Mondays, Dallas was down from its big opening last June when it earned a second-season renewal a couple of weeks into its run.

It takes a lot to shock Dallas fans, but seeing Pamela Barnes (Julie Gonzalo) and John Ross Ewing (Josh Henderson) wed in Vegas this week — binding them and their respective shares in Barnes Global and Ewing Energies — did it. “I was sitting on a comfortable couch, and I was reading the episode,” Gonzalo says, “and I literally yelled, ‘What? They’re marrying them already? No way!’ At first, I was like, ‘That’s so soon,’ but now I’m like, ‘That’s awesome. They’re brilliant.’ They’re a great duo and really complement each other. I don’t think »

A moving tribute to Larry Hagman and his most iconic role, J.R. Ewing, on the latest episode of "Dallas." After he was shot and killed mysteriously last week, the Ewings came together to lay to rest one of the most notorious villains in the history of television. There were tributes to J.R. throughout the episode, as well as several cameos from the original run of "Dallas."
