Would 3x22 Jock's Trial (Part 1) been a good season finale?

    I'm closing in on it and I know that nothing can beat the Who Shot JR cliffhanger - still, it only happened because they had to extend the season so this was probably the planned season finale.

    Question: Would it have worked as a season finale?

    It's my understanding that there were two additional episodes ordered which would mean that Jock's Trial Part 2 would have been the finale.

    Interestingly, the previous season ended on a two-parter so no doubt it would have been seen as consistent with that and the cliff-hangar tradition would not have begun.

    The standard television season number is 22. So it makes sense when they got those additional episodes that they went - "let's shoot the bastard!"

    Jock's trial as a season finale might have been good. But Who Shot JR was excellent

    yes, Part 2 was a pretty strong season finale: Digger dying and the revelation that he wasn't really Pam's father, the final scene Cliff vowing revenge on the Ewings over Digger's grave.

    The next two episodes were absolutely brilliant, though!
