    True or not! Not sure - here's hoping lol

    Victoria Principal could be set to make a shock return to legendary drama series Dallas after stars Patrick Duffy and Jesse Metcalfe let slip producers want her in the show's upcoming reboot.

    The actress' character Pamela Ewing was written out of the sex-and-scandal series in 1987 when viewers were told she had only months to live after fleeing the Texan dynasty.

    But the storyline was left open-ended, and it's now emerged Principal - who is the only surviving member of the show's original cast not signed up for the relaunch later this year (12) - could be brought back to Dallas in an explosive plot.

    Let's hope so, but I'll not get my hopes up yet.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed that it's true.

    Let's hope they don't say they are bringing her back so if she does appear in an episode we will have a surprise.

    This was in another thread.

    They've said before that anyone who is alive can come back. I don't know that that means she's coming back.

    Yes, this was in my thread that I posted about an hour ago. As I said there & will repeat here, they should try to get her. I can see Jesse's motivation (as an actor) in wanting VP to return. It would give him & his character a real meaty story to play out.

    But when it was stated to PD "Oh so Pam could return and its bye bye Brenda" he replied something along the lines that no, he and Brenda were in for the long run.

    If true, I'd like her rich and ready to steamroll the Ewings into oblivion--all except Christopher, of course. No pussyfooting around.

    I have maintained that "IF" VP returns, Pam should be wealthy, independent, & the strong character she was in the mini series. I wouldn't mind seeing her be bitter toward them all (yes even her beloved Bobby). Just seeing a Mama Bear Pam saddling up with Christopher the way SE seems to be for John Ross could be fun to watch. Perhaps this time around instead of Cliff vs JR it'll be Pam vs SE LOL!!

    Their decision to go with that shower ad sure seems to be a major hint that we will indeed be seeing Victoria as Pam.

    Yes, Bobby has become such an obnoxious, boring a$$hole now, I too hope that she's very bitter towards Bobby...IF SHE COMES BACK. How could she not be bitter? Bobby abandoned Pam by believing what was more than likely a phony letter, similar to the one Katherine had written before...that she was so vain she'd pack up and leave her husband and only child just because she was burned. :rolleyes: Pam should be livid that he thought so little of her...but the viewers find out that she only left in order to protect Bobby and Christopher from Katherine's threat of killing them. That hospital scene with Katherine by Pam's bedside was created for a reason way back then. Why not utilize it now?

    The original plot with her "abandoning" Bobby and Christopher was obviously left open ended for a possible return...and the only way they could have done it is to create a scenario where we could still love Pamela....ie Katherine would have killed Bobby and/or Christopher if she didn't promise to leave. She was hardly in the right position physically...burned, couldn't speak, etc....to have done anything but leave. Perhaps we can see Morgan's "Katherine" get hauled off to jail after getting caught on the outstanding arrest warrant...and Pam can finally come back. They'd be stupid not to capitalize on it...and VP could work as little as she wanted.

    So your thinking is that she should be livid at Bobby for not go looking all over the world for her, since she was unable to come back to him because if she did, Katherine would kill him? Well, if she didn't return to Bobby because Katherine would kill him, why would she not be afraid that Katherine would kill Bobby or maybe even Christopher if Bobby were to search all over the world until he found her? Why would Katherine be any less of a threat if they reunited by Bobby finding Pam, than if they reunited by Pam returning? If Pam thought so little of Bobby's strength and ability that he was no match for Katherine and that's what Pam's excuse for not returning was, why would Pam feel Bobby would be in any less danger if he were to find Pam? Frankly, if I were Bobby I'd be livid at Pam for her to think so little of me that she thought I would be no match for Katherine if she came after me looking to kill me or my son. Hell, Katherine was no match for Bobby even when he was blind, under the influence of a sedative and in a hospital bed!

    She may very well be coming back, but I don't think that whoever wrote this article knows anything concrete. It reads as if they just pieced together things they'd heard/read to infer something which may or may not be happening.

    I think articles like this only keep false hope alive. It is doubtful she will ever come back, she just clearly doesn't want to play the part again, or work with those same people.

    A very good one.

    Oh, god no-----Pam would NEVER go back to Bobby (at least the Pam that I wanna see return). She would FINALLY grasp what a wimp he always has been and now she loathes him. THAT would be a great twist to a VP return.

    If I were VP, I would expect nothing less than a strongwilled and ready to kick your ass Pamela.

    There is a difference between a Pam return and what a lot of fans want to see. Pam & Bobby will NEVER get back together, but a villianess Pam would be the only way to go.

    I really don't agree. Pam coming back with a tougher, 'no-punches-pulled' kind of attitude would be good, but villainy? Too much.

    Yes, and Morgan Brittany even stated in her latest interview that Katherine was used so that Pam could be brought back without abandoning Bobby. That's the only way it would work.

    Yes, I'd love at the very least a cameo by Morgan.

    The difference is, Bobby didn't know about the threat, so he just assumed she was so cruel she'd abandon him and their son. Of course she would hope that he didn't try to find her...in order for her to keep them safe (thus the "marrying my doctor" crap to keep Cliff off the trail)....but for Bobby to just give up so easily and believe that Pam was that vain...and a mummified woman who couldn't speak and could barely scratch out, "I love you both" in large child-like print could suddenly write a letter or coherently dictate a letter...made Bobby a dumb jerk.

    So you're saying that a man who gets killed by a woman must be a wimp? Katherine was on the run from the police...or at least supposedly...an angry woman in hiding who liked to shoot guns at men, would be a threat to an entire infantry of men.

    TJames...no villainess, just kick-ass. Though, I don't think they'll even ask VP to return. Their behind the scenes love-fest seems to be way more important to them than what's best for the show. Those people seem to think they get paid to joke around on set instead of doing their job for the finished product. When I'm at work I get paid to do my job well...not to hang out and have fun with my co-workers.

    The way you write that just makes me hate post-Pam Bobby even more.

    Very much to the detriment to the show.
