Did You Know?


Sue Ellen Shepard Ewing: You have nothing to worry about. I have no intention of releasing the film - at the moment.
J.R.: What the hell does that mean?
Sue Ellen Shepard Ewing: It means the movie will be locked securely in a vault. However, if I think you're coming after me - or if you cross me for any reason - or if I feel you're not doing well for John Ross, or anyone else for that matter- or if I get up on the wrong side of the bed one morning - or if I'm simply bored - then I will release the movie. And then, J.R., you will be the laughing ...

Sue Ellen's Last Payback(and Linda Gray's last episode)
21 September 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At the conclusion of the 12th season of Dallas, Sue Ellen not only manages her own local movie studio, but she also has completed her seminal feature length auto-biographical film that chronicles her 12-year relationship with JR and the Ewing family. Needless to say, JR doesn't come off looking too good by the end of Sue Ellen's film.

However, prior to showing JR her first and only film trashing him, Sue Ellen accepts an offer from a rather dark, and not so handsome creepy looking guy to abandoned her life and studio in Dallas and come live with him in London. Sue Ellen quickly accepts his offer, but wants to tie up a few loose ends before taking the plunge with Mr Creepy Guy by first saying goodbye to John Ross, and using her auto-biographical movie to blackmail JR, and stuff.

Immediately after JR and Sue Ellen both watch their 12-year "dysfunctional" relationship being played out before them during a private viewing at Sue Ellen's personal movie theater, JR threatens Sue Ellen with legal action to prevent her from ever releasing the film to the general public. Sue Ellen then reassures JR that her film will be locked away in a vault and never released, IF - JR dedicates himself to becoming a better person in general. Which includes being a good father for John Ross and treating his current young trophy wife (Cally Ewing) a lot better than he treated her.

Then, Sue Ellen rises from her seat and proudly walks out of the room with Mr Creepy guy, who has been waiting in the dark by the exit for God knows how long. Leaving a stunned JR sitting alone in the theater contemplating over what just happened between his last stand-off with his ex-wife Sue Ellen. A rather intensely dramatic moment in an otherwise campy and self-parodying finale.

In other less significant story lines to conclude the 12th season of Dallas, Bobby's latest main squeeze April Stevens (played by Sharee J Wilson) is getting a series of disturbing phone calls from an anonymous man. Bobby then moves April from her apartment into the Southfork Ranch for her protection. But, April is still getting harassing phone calls at the Ranch from an anonymous stranger who never states who he is, or what he wants. Forcing the audience to tune in the next season to find out who that mysterious caller is.

Finally, Cliff Barnes attempts to track down the location of his ex-live in lover Afton Cooper (played by Audrey Landers) to possibly reignite their ancient relationship. But, Cliff ends-up getting beaten and rolled by Afton's alcoholic ex-husband and his grifter girlfriend.

I give this episode 8-out of-10 stars purely because it's Linda Grey's last episode as Sue Ellen after 12-years on the original series of 'Dallas'. Despite having a lot of scenes that are unintentionally campy and laughable.
