Trivia

Jenilee Harrison has the distinction of playing the only character to be killed off twice. Jamie Ewing Barnes was killed off the first time in the last show of the "Dream Season" when she was blown up in her brother's car. The second time came midway through the next season, when she was killed while rock climbing in Mexico. Though the second death didn't occur on camera. See more »

The show's most controversial episode
7 October 2006 | by (Camilla, GA) – See all my reviews

The powerhouse nighttime soap's ratings were down and much of the blame could lie in the departure of "good" son Bobby Ewing (Patrick Duffy) a year earlier. Seeking a way to bring some life back into the show, the producers came up with an "ingenious" way of bringing him back: let everything that happened this season be part of a highly detailed "dream" by Pam (Victoria Principal).

Thus, everything that occurred in this episode from Angela Nero (Barbara Carrera) blowing up the Ewing Building with Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) in it to Jamie Ewing (Jennie Lee Harrison) expiring in an exploding car were other "figments" of Pam's vivid nocturnal images.

The last scene when Pam awakes and goes to the shower to meet Bobby standing, saying "How are you doing?" is one of television most memorable surprises and has been parodied by other shows, especially the final installment of "Newhart," ever since.
