    ... was it during the 9/11 attacks with Mickey Trotter's brother?

    I can't really remember if they got specific.

    If I remember correctly, after having been admitted to a sanitarium, Ellie came face to face with Lady Jessica. A fight to the death ensued. Ellie was triumphant after delivering a final fatal blow but later also died from her injuries.

    I don't know, but I like to think that she passed away in her sleep, happy & content with Clayton Farlow at her side. :)

    Snarky was that screen shot taken when Bradford May was responsible for the cinematography for Dallas? It looks and feels like it does. With regards to Miss Ellie. I only ever watched TNT Dallas once so can offer no information. For a character that was so embedded in Dallas history it was another lost opportunity for the writers to add some weight to their version.

    Agree. I personally think that Miss Ellie died by spontaneous combustion when she found in Clayton's closet a box with a lot of bouffant wigs...

    PS: It´s so hard to pretend that life goes on without that wonderful show..."Phallus", they called it...:spinning::danc:

    If memory serves I think her demise was occasioned by leaping onto her exercise bike - only to find out too late that the saddle had been removed earlier that day by Jack Ewing who had added it to his collection of denim crotch enhancers.

    Yeah, Phallus was terrific, I wish we could get the thread back.

    Miss Ellie cameoed in the shows final episode alongside Steve Forrest as Jock Ewing. :)

    Weight to the Cyntax Dallas, you've got to be kidding!

    Cynthia Cidre & Mike Robin wouldn't know a good storyline unless they listened to Daffy Duck!

    I will admit though we didn't even know what happened to either Miss Ellie or Clayton. Poor writing as usual.

    At least with the original Lorimar Dallas they had very capable writers in charge of it like Arthur Bernard Lewis & Camille Marchetta. The old show was very well written, I can't say the same for the Cyntax version. :)

    And David Paulsen. oldDALLAS would never have run so long and so well for as many years as it did without the addition of Paulsen after 'Who Shot JR?".

    It just wouldn't have. He brought the Shakespearean structure to the show. And most of its humor.

    According to the Dallas Facebook Timeline that was set up just before DallasTNT began, Clayton had a heart attack on March 15, 1999, while he and Miss Ellie were in Kuala Lampur, and then died two days later, after which Miss Ellie moved back to SouthFork. She then died on August 8, 2001. No details of how it happened, just that she "passed away."

    I thought she died from complications following a face transplant operation.

    Very informative. We should add that to the Dallas Bible. Just in case someone decides to slap us with another continuation.
