Okay so we've now started watching season five. Yesterday was "The People vs. Gary Ewing" which was all about the trial. I've gotta say that Ben's first appearance on the show was rather strange. I know he's supposed to do the gentleman thing. But if some stanger just grabbed hold of me and pulled me into a broom clothes I wouldn't be too happy! But oh well at least it got Val away from those annoying reporters. Funny Ben is supposedly working on a news station, which makes those reporters his collegues or even employees... and yet they didn't act like it at the courthouse. Oh well at the end the looks between Gary & Val when the charges were dropped said more than a thoasand words... Then tonight it was "Fugitives"... Diana sure is in trouble now being on the run like that. She seemed appropriately scared when she realized that Chip was wanted for murder. I remember feeling sorry for her the first time I watched the show. This time not so much since I remember she's going to marry the guy even though she knows he's killed Ciji! Oh and Gary finally bought himself the ranch. You could tell that Abby was not pleased at the idea of moving out there. But she is going along with it since she doesn't want to lose Gary. She told him this episode that she loved him. Sometimes I think that she does and sometimes I wonder if she would still love him if he didn't have all that Ewing money... Yet it's clear that they are moving towards Gary/Abby's marriage and away from any chances of a Val/Gary reconciliation as they've introduced Ben as Val's new love interest. So far I like him. But the poor guy is gonna have to put up with a lot!
