    Clayton was a good man, but how could he go after Sue Ellen immediately after she broke up with his son? I know Clayton was supposed to possess high moral character, but this was not a good look for him IMO.

    Thanksgivings would have been awkward. "Son, remember that woman you almost married? She's your stepmother now."

    The heart wants what the heart wants. And you could argue that he didn't quite realise what his heart wanted until Afton and JR pointed it out to him.

    Possibly, but no-one is just one thing. He was flawed too -- proud, pompous, hypocritical on occasion -- just like the rest of us.

    But it made him more dramatically interesting, I think.

    I never bought that Clayton fell in love with Sue Ellen. It was just J.R. playing with other people´s feelings as usual. It was funny, though, seeing how he manipulated Afton to make Clayton believe he did love Sue Ellen. Oh dear ol´ Afton, I wish we could see a spinoff / prequel of her days at Biloxi...

    Not so much the heart, but perhaps a bit lower in the anatomy.

    Speaking of Clayton courting women, someone pointed out that drunken Miss Ellie sounds like Winnie The Pooh here:

    He didn't address her figure, however.
