Has Cidre ever published those first 2 scripts of season 4 she wrote?

    It would be nice to read them. She did say in an interview if they weren't picked up for a season 4 that she might publish them.


    As far as we know, she has a bible that maps out the 15 episodes of season 4, and she wrote episode 1, and another writer wrote episode 2 and another wrote 3, the most. So I think 3 scripts were at least written, maybe more...


    Would be nice to see those.

    No.

    I assume Warner Bros owns them so I doubt she's allowed to publish them even if she wanted to.

    I'd love to see them, especially if they were written prior to JR's death :(

    The episodes they are discussing are from season 4 and JR died in season two! :(

    But I am sure there must be a first draft of a couple of episodes that were filmed closely after Larry's death where JR was in the first draft. It would be interesting to read those script and compare them to what we ended up getting on the screen.

    There was some talk about them being published in the form of a novel but that was a while ago now so I guess it isn't happening.

    She hasn´t and she won´t. Ever. Because like so many things she said, it was a big fat LIE. Everything was in her head...

    Some Latino characters we don’t care about would show up and do something. Lucy and Ray would appear at some family event and have a couple of lines. John Ross would be petulant about something. Ann would cry. Judith Light would overact. Pam would still be dead.

    There you go.

    Trust me. If those scripts were out there they'd be published here on Soapchat for us to dissect. Every detail would be ruthlessly critiqued. But hey, I'd like to see them only to conjure up an image what JR's daughter would look like.

    Although there were no scripts released, Cidre gave an outline as to what she had planned. There was going to be a six month time jump between the end of season 3 and the beginning of season 4. However, there would be flashbacks to the explosion and Christopher's funeral. Elena's baby would already be born, and the father would have been revealed in the first episode. John Ross was set to meet his half sister. Her mother was going to be a lover of JR's who we had never heard of before. And true to Cidre's style, she would have some deep, dark secret. John Ross and Judith were set to have a huge arc together. John Ross was also going to have a new adversary replace Christopher. It's possible this would have been Bobby's son Lucas, who was also finally going to make an appearance. Tracey Mckay was also set to return again. Lastly, an addition was going to be put on Southfork, courtesy of CGI.

    Aside from Lucas finally appearing, I can't say that any of that sounds incredibly exciting. A next generation Ewing is killed off after three seasons, John Ross gets a sister that the audience has no connection to, the paternity of Elena's baby sounds like a snoozefest, and a CGI addition on Southfork would have ruined the aesthetic of it in my opinion. So no loss.

    Eh, I actually like the idea of adding a wing to it, which wouldn't have been seen from the front anyway. The house was always laughably small for the amount of people it was supposed to house anyway...

    I just think it would have been silly to do after all this time. The original show used the interior sets and camera tricks to make the house seem bigger than it really was. Cidre, on the other hand, scaled down the sets and depicted the house's actual size. I think she wanted the battle between Bobby and John Ross to represent old school and new school respectively. And as with most things on the show, new school wins. The interior had already been completely reconfigured, and now she was going to do the same thing to the back of the house.

    It may seem inconsequential. However, I see it as part of a larger issue to distance the show from the original. While many continuations today embrace familiarity, Cidre ran from it.

    I wrote p i s s off! But for some strange reason it showed it as pass off!

    I'm currently watching Star Trek The Animated Series, which really does calm me down. :)
