Was it GOOD that CBS spoiled the ending?

    Yeah, cos JR split up her and Ray and she was really angry about it.

    Weren't these alternate scenes of different characters firing the gun just filmed for the blooper reel? Those weren't consistent with what was seen in "A House Divided". Most of them were standing in front of JR's desk, when really both he and the shooter were in the outer office. Some of them were shouting "Take That!", immediately giving away their identities, and one of thsese scenes was filmed outside in daylight. Unless there really were some proper alternative reveal scenes filmed as well?
    Also, I can't see how the cast couldn't have known who did it several weeks before "Whodunnit?" was shown, as they would have already completed the next few episodes by then - including the scene in the next episode where Kristin explains to the whole family why she did it.

    That TNT Dallas show was a big two fingered salute to the old show!

    They hyped up the Which Ewing Will Die in the hope it would help their ratings when they realised the show was in trouble.

    Back in the day when there was no internet, having JR shot in 1980 was terrific. No spoilers, no speculation, just the excitement of not seeing that plotline coming until it actually happened & then the media exploded. Those where the good old days when Dallas was (and still is!) the greatest soap opera of them all. :)
