At least to me, it seemed that anything will make them lose their minds. I’m on season 6/The Battle for Ewing Oil, and just saw the episode where Rebecca dies. Of course this causes Pam to blame JR and Bobby for Rebecca getting on a plane, in place of Cliff who was drowning in sorrow, yet again, to try and stop JR from buying an refinery. I swear, Rebecca had got just as obsessed with the Ewing’s as Cliff was. Again, Pam blames Bobby and JR for her mom fighting her brother’s battle? Then she leaves her husband over this? This on the heels of her going crazy over not having a child. Not too long before this, Rebecca blamed JR over Cliff’s suicide attempt. And we all know how Katherine ended up. The Ewings were far from perfect, but the Barnes/Wentworths were really a messed up bunch.
