    Switching them around is only marginally less so, IMO, but I agree they should have made a choice and stuck with it.
    I still think the most natural and potentially most interesting conflict would be between Christopher and Lucas with Bobby torn between them. First play out the rivalry between Christopher and John Ross them have them forced to join forces against someone they would both see as an interloper. Or would Lucas divide and conquer?

    I like the idea. Given that we left the family back in 1998 Lucas was 11 years of age. Anything could have happened between then and 2012 and Lucas would have been 25 years of age when the Ewing family return to our small screens. Perhaps Lucas had returned to Southfork as a teenage tearaway. Made an attempt to understand why his father just casually gave up on him. Perhaps it got to the point where Bobby had to make a decision and sent Lucas back to Europe and Ray and Jenna.

    In TNT Dallas I wanted more Ewings, not less.

    I dunno
    To be fair - he wasn't. He was obviously conflicted about his identity, which is what JR also was in regards to Jock on the original Dallas. They could've done a better job portraying it, but it was there.
