TNT's DALLAS continues its second season on Monday, April 8 with back-to-back new episodes starting at 8 p.m. ET/PT (special time).

In "A Call to Arms" (8 p.m. ET/PT), with the clock ticking in the wake of Cliff and Ryland putting Ewing Energies on the verge of collapse, the Ewings battle back with J.R.'s master plan to guide them. Christopher and John Ross attempt to bring Pamela into the fold by turning her against her father, but at the risk of alienating her completely.

Meanwhile, Bobby is on the brink of exposing Ryland's crimes as Emma and Drew's relationship continues to fracture, and Christopher closes in on finding his mother.

In "Love and Family" (9 p.m. ET/PT), after Pamela proves her loyalty to John Ross, he goes out on a limb to let her in on J.R.'s master plan. But when Christopher's suspicions about her seem to be right, John Ross begins to question if his trust was misplaced, leading Pamela to show her mettle in game-changing fashion. Meanwhile, Drew confides in Elena about a dark secret that leaves her forced to choose between her family and her love for Christopher. And Bobby continues his fight to keep Ewing Energies out of Cliff Barnes' hands.

Watch the final moments of the last episode and a preview for next week below:

The final two episodes of the season air on April 15.


  1. I haven't read any of the previews since the last ep I saw was JR's funeral and don't want to get spoiled.

    Now with airing the final four eps in two week, either TNT wants to quickly end this season, or the show at 8pm is doing so poorly they pulled it.

  2. This show is just not slowing down by any means and that is part of the reason why it’s so addictive. It’s hard to believe that the season finale is upon us already next Monday because it feels like there is so much left to be told this season. I watched the clip for Monday’s episode in my office at DISH and I was blown away at the level of conspiracy that is coming to light. Then again this is true Dallas fashion and I am enjoying every moment of it. Even though Dallas airs before I get home I catch up on my way home with DISH Anywhere because it lets me turn my iPad into a TV anytime I want.

  3. Really odd programming move especially since the 8pm show was going up against The Voice and Dancing with the Stars - not to mention the post-game coverage of the NCAA final. Maybe they'll make some of the lost viewers up in the DVR column.

  4. Fox, I'm not a huge fan of back-to-back episodes of anything these days and it definitely hurt DALLAS in the 8 p.m. ratings. Next week is two hours again but starting at 9 p.m. I would have rather seen the season finale be one hour on its own but the NBA playoffs start April 20 so I imagine TNT has conflicts starting then and had to wrap up the DALLAS season by April 15.
