Sheriff Derrick


After Veronica, the false Martha, falls to her death, presumably a staged suicide, from her hotel John Ross is arrested as sole murder suspect, having been seen leaving there, while her video camera there has disappeared. Vicente Cano, whose goons probably did it after John Ross told him she stole from them, repeats during a jail visit his threat to foreclose on Southfork unless the contractual oil delivery is made in time and has a Latino prison gang beat John Ross into the infirmary. JR interrupts his Vegas operation to visit John Ross secretly. Desperate to save her son, Sue Ellen blackmail the medical examiner to falsely rule Veronica's death a suicide. Alas unaware of that, Christopher made a deal with the Venezuelans, who get the South American rights to his inestimable hydrates extraction technique, which he refused to sell for a fortune to Exxon. The cousins feel buddies again. The baby's ultrasound and Rebecca's clean criminal record motivate Chris to give his marriage ... Written by KGF Vissers

Bomb Finally Dropped At End of Episode
26 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Most of this episode is a consequence episode. JR and John Ross work has consequences and Bobby and the rest of the family start finding them out. It is no surprise at the start that John Ross is arrested for murder. We know he did not kill her from the last show but he has the victims scratches on his neck.

What happens with John Ross getting beat up by the South American thugs in jail because they want their Southfork Oil is no surprise. In fact all this episode goes along with a certain logic. Christopher becomes the guy who has to bail out the family with the devils they have made the deal with to save Southfork.

When the deal is set and done, John Ross and Elena have their romance kindled because of his beating and when he gets out of jail he goes with her for some healing and TLC. As for Christopher, he has several encounters with Rebecca, finally on the last one asking her if she has been totally honest with him. She swears she has been and he is still trying to decide if he can trust her again.

Then in the last minute comes the bomb shell. This little revelation takes Hitchcocks "Strangers on a Train" (which is supposedly how Rebecca met Christopher) to a whole new level. The question is will the results of this revelation finally come out next show and what exactly this little but major wrinkle are going to have?
