DALLAS: Episode: 316: ''Daddy's dearest''.
9 February 2007 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

WOW! What an AMAZING episode, it was the only one i was missing, until yesterday! It opens with a very sexy-looking Sasha Mitchell (as James) in a blue half-shirt in the gym at the ranch. Lucy enters and tells him that she does not like his daddy one bit. J.R. collects John Ross at the airport and tells him he's got a new older brother. He's not impressed. Cally tries to cheer him up later on, with no help from Lucy. Sue Eelln is apparently living happily ever after in England, while Miss Ellie and Clayton return home to some bad press. James gets Cliff's old office at Ewing, with Pam's old secretary as his, at his side. Ellie talks about James with Clayton. James and Michelle meet. Michelle moves in with Cliff. April tells Bobby she's gotten him a pick-nick basket, and they discuss marriage. The reason why Michelle is now living at Cliff's is because April has thrown her sister out! To which Michelle's response is: ''She is such a bitch!''. In the next show: Cally is told by Michelle she's having an affair with J.R.
