I know this was hinted at in one of the Dallas novels but should JR have been Lucy's biological father in the TV series? JR could have raped Valene in the past and Lucy would have been the result of the violent attack. It would have made total sense because why else would JR have sent some "good old boys" after Valene to take her baby away to bring back to Southfork if it wasn't his child? Having Lucy at Southfork meant that Gary and Valene would always want to go back there to see her and JR's aim always seemed to be to get rid of them. It made no sense for him wanted Lucy to be brought up at Southfork. Why did JR hate Valene so much unless it was the story she could have told about her rape? Why was Valene so scared about going to Southfork and was her hatred for JR more than just him taking her child away? The rape and JR being Lucy's father would answer all those questions. Had the show runners gone with this idea it would have made for some very interesting storylines and made Lucy much more of a central character in the later years when she had more of a peripheral role.
