    We know that J.R and Sue Ellen were perfect partners in the show, along with Bobby & Pam, Ray & Donna, but who would be their alternative perfect partners - who would you have been happy to see them end up with, along with Cliff?

    If Sue Ellen and Bobby had been killed off in some devastating disaster then I'd like for Pam and JR to get together, a long time after though, JR could accept that Pam isn't a Barnes by birth and therefore realise its senseless to keep hating her, she could be distrustful of his efforts to help her and Christopher but over time they do develop feelings for one another, for this to happen this would have to happen over a period of two or three seasons.

    Ray and Abby would've been funny to see.

    The idea of Pam and JR ever being anything but enemies, nevermind a couple, I really struggle with. As he says himself, JR had a special feeling for Pam, he hated her, and I think it probably should stay that way.

    As for Ray and Abby, she'd wipe the floor with him! And if Ray felt threatened by Donna's drive, ambition and success imagine how he would feel dating Abby! Plus I think Abby would get bored and have a wandering eye pretty fast. I could see her seducing Mickey behind Ray's back if he was around. Just for something to do.

    Honestly I wanted them to end up with their "perfect partners". In a way it really sucks how almost all the main couples of Dallas got crappy endings after we invested so much time in watching their relationship grow and develop and go through changes on the show. :(

    That said I did like Bobby & Jenna as well as Bobby & April's relationship too. So I would have been okay with him ending up with either one of those two ladies.

    I think Cliff should have ended up with Afton. I would have loved for her and Pamela Rebecca to stick around after she returned to the show and for Cliff to have become a family man during the last two seasons. It would have enabled his character to evolve.

    Lucy and Cliff. Originally just purely to pass off JR like the Jamie story but they eventually fall in love. What would Mitch and Afton say?

    JR and Katherine! They were so much alike. They both used schemes to try to get what they wanted, were both vulnerable about being second best and mostly ignored by a parent in favor of their "perfect" siblings, both wanted their fathers' companies (which they should have had!), both loved hats, hell, they both even had the same way of saying "dammit!" I don't care what anyone says, the devious blue-eyed members from each of the two rival families belonged together! Similarity is what breeds attraction and helps a relationship, so I don't know why they just made JR and Katherine fall for people who were way too nice for them.

    But could they have been together? As in alternative couplings?

    If they had wrote it so that JR falls for Katherine during that reporter scene, it would have been fun to see something build, in my opinion. JR was divorced from Sue Ellen at that point. JR and Katherine would have made the ultimate evil power couple, with both Ewing Oil and Wentworth Industries.

    Alright I will go along with that. But does she still hate Cliff? Does she still pine for Bobby?

    Yes and no! Their jealousy of their siblings would've helped JR and Katherine bond, in my opinion. And Bobby did not deserve Katherine! He just used her to get oil fields and the Tundra Torque. Or, maybe for fun she does like Bobby at first, till JR changes her mind! Heh, heh!

    You're right. He did use her

    As I said in another post (the me liking season 13 one),Bobby in the space of 2 episodes has April,Jeanne and Kay (ish). If JR did this we would all be saying "cheating bastard ".....

    And yet he sleeps with April, even though she slept with JR. But with Katherine, it was like "You're my sister-in-law!" Umm...no! She wasn't anymore, you idiot! You and Pam were divorced! Lol! Not that I wanted Bobby to sleep with Katherine. Yuck!

    And I imagine that JR and Katherine might have been into more kinky stuff if they were a couple. Like getting it on in his office and then recording it with a tape. Since JR recorded them doing it for blackmail in season 7 (dvd), then who is to say that he wouldn't have liked using it for fun if he and Katherine were actually together? Lol.

    Bobby could have actually had an AIDS scare as a good storyline. Around that year he also was with Tracy whilst JR just had Cally.

    JR and Katherine would clearly: 1- have an open marriage
    2- have angry make up sex
    3- never have children (can't imagine her as a mother)
