Trivia

When Victoria Principal opens the shower door in the infamous Bobby shower scene, actor John Beck was the one in the shower. The shot of Patrick Duffy was inserted later, without even Principal knowing about it. She first saw it at the same time everybody else did when it was broadcast on television. Her first reaction to seeing it was to phone Patrick Duffy straight away. 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.
