‘Dallas’ Preview: Will Sue Ellen Come to John Ross’ Rescue?

'Dallas' Renewed
TNT gives us another year at Southfork.
'Dallas' Josh on Sex Scenes
A Q&A with one of Southfork's young guns.
What exactly is Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) doing, cozying up to Ann’s (Brenda Strong) ex-husband, Harris (Mitch Pileggi), on Wednesday’s episode of TNT’s Dallas? Last week, Mrs. Bobby Ewing paid her powerful, former hubby a visit, to ask him not to do business with JR (Larry Hagman) and John Ross (Josh Henderson).

A desperate Ann turned to Harris in a last ditch effort to help Bobby (Patrick Duffy) keep his promise to Miss Ellie (the late Barbara Bel Geddes) that Southfork never be drilled on. If Harris doesn’t allow the Ewing father and son access to his tankers, there’s no way they can transport the billions of barrels of oil they plan to drill, baby, drill from Section 18 of the beloved ranch.

While Harris agreed to help Ann — in exchange for a hug — in tonight’s installment of the delicious, Texan saga, it’s Sue Ellen who has a proposition for the mogul.

Will Miss Texas 1967 offer more incentive than an embrace to get Harris to come over to her, and by extension, John Ross’ side?

Speaking of John Ross, his daddy has skipped town, leaving him to deal with the fallout from Bobby being swindled out of control of Southfork’s destiny. With cousin Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe) proving he’s no slouch when it comes to the fine Ewing art of blackmail, will John Ross give up his father’s role in conspiring with the phony Del Sol Conservancy, or risk that oh-so-kinky sex tape with Faux Marta (Leonor Varela) being seen by the one girl both Ewing heirs can’t get out of their system, Elena Ramos (Jordana Brewster)?

Dallas airs Wednesday at 9 PM on TNT.
