Loved the homage to Star Wars at the very end. JR reminded me so much of the Emperor after he convinced Anikin Skywalker to go to the dark side of the force! Dark, shadow over his face (from the hat) and grinning like the Cheshire Cat!
Of course it will be interesting to see who young Rebecca's mother is!
The one issue I had with Christopher was how quickly he turned on John Ross after John Ross admitted guilt. Seemed way overacted. Christopher had already forgiven John Ross and knew he was guilty, so why the sudden turn? I guess they needed motivation for Christopeher and Elena to get together and cause the final slide of John Ross to the Dark Side of the Ewing Farce.
On the other hand, with today's electronic editing and all those seasons of the original show, it would be somewhat easy to "make" JR say anything you wanted him to and always have the character offscreen or on the phone. But, to me, that's cheese. I really would rather see a cliffhanger and a whole 3rd season to resolve it.
1) Die by conspiracy
2) A mistake made by a family member
3) A simple old age problem like a heart attack.
4) Embrace the reality and say it was cancer.
I would go with 4 and class. The soap operate can come with the will and Sue Ellen taking over.
RIP Larry. You'll be missed.
I hope the writers handle this with class and don't prolong it with some manufactured storyline or cliffhanger. The writers on the old Dallas kind of did that when Jim Davis died -- they didn't address it right away, just kept him off-screen, and then had him lost in a helicopter crash. Then they had this search storyline that fell flat because, of course, we all knew Jim Davis had died and wouldn't be found.
If they did a "Who killed JR?" storyline, the only likely suspect at this point would be Cliff. JR had been out of the game for so long that his previous enemies are either long gone or let go whatever animosity they had toward him. And he wasn't back in the game long enough to make any new enemies.
If you missed it the replay is Friday. If you have Verizon FiOS it's whenever you're ready via VOD in the TNT folder.
I'll say more later as I'm not into the whole spoiler thing.
Catch the replay on Friday or when it's available on VOD. Really!

Never seen John Ross flustered like that, given the situation.
Of course, what happened after, oy!
It's a shame Pamela needed drugs to get there, that would have been a nice storyline.
I kind of wonder if the Pamela moment had more to it than what we saw. IE was the whole ecstasy(???) simply a device to get him to realize the stupidity of his ways.
