'Dallas' finale postmortem: Producer, star talk about losing a Ewing

In Dallas‘ big season 3 finale, fans were forced to say goodbye to one member of the Ewing family. Specifically, they were forced to watch as Nicolas blew up Christopher’s car … with Christopher inside. But with one Ewing gone, there’s another on the horizon, because John Ross also discovered he has a sister. Needless to say, it was a gasp-worthy end to a season full of twists, turns, sketchy cartel members, and more.

Unfortunately, Jesse Metcalfe wasn’t able to hop on the phone, but the star did issue this statement about his departure from the series: “In classic Dallas fashion the producers and writers needed a season ending shocker. After three great years, I was ready to move on and pursue other projects. It culminated in the perfect opportunity to surprise fans and deliver that shocking twist. I enjoyed my time on Dallas and am grateful for the opportunity to work with Warner Bros and TNT, and I wish the cast and crew all the very best!”

As for executive producer Cynthia Cidre, we’ve got an exclusive interview where she talks about losing Christopher and what comes next for those who survived this finale.

Patrick Duffy recalls an old 'Dallas' line that tops this week's Lesser Prairie Chicken twist, teases what's ahead

Spoiler alert! This week’s episode of Dallas saw John Ross (Josh Henderson) and Bobby (Patrick Duffy) each take bold steps in their battle over fracking at Southfork. In the end, even though John Ross had convinced the ranch hands that more money could be made in oil than cattle, Bobby managed to put a hold on John Ross’s drilling permit by informing the Sierra Club of a potentially endangered population of Lesser Prairie Chicken.

Asked how many takes it took him to get “Lesser Prairie Chicken” out, Duffy just laughs. “Once, in the old Dallas, we had the phrase, ‘Well, daddy, I think the whole herd’s got screwworm.’ And ‘screwworm’ did not come out of Larry’s and my mouth for about an hour. It’s one of those phrases. ‘Lesser Prairie Chicken’ is one of those phrases,” he says.

He admits the cast is also having fun with the frequent use of the term “fracking” this season. ”Especially off-camera,” he says. “If you think about Battlestar Galactica, ‘frak’ was the way they got around the censors.” (Yes, he is a BSG fan, and when he stopped by EW for an upcoming Pop Culture Personality Test, he showed us a photo of himself with Step by Step fan Katee Sackhoff on his phone to prove it. Check it out below.)  READ FULL STORY
