“Dallas” opened Season 3 with Patrick Duffy’s Bobby Ewing paying tribute to the show’s lost loved ones, but the moment wasn’t originally set to kick off the TNT drama’s return.
Patrick recently explained to AccessHollywood.com how the touching moment came about — where Bobby visited the graves of Jock, Miss Ellie and J.R. Ewing on the Southfork estate, and realized he is the only one from that old generation left.
“That was Cynthia’s idea ,” Patrick told AccessHollywood.com, referring to the show’s executive producer, Cynthia Cidre. “But the interesting [thing] was — that scene takes place, in terms of the original script, about 30 minutes into the show. And when we filmed it and when she saw it — and I’m never a part of editing or anything – [she] and the staff looked at it and they said, ‘Oh no, we can’t put that in the middle of the show. That’s the beginning of the new ‘Dallas.’ It’s the starting over, it’s the retrospective of the family. It’s the making that statement about I’m the only one left.’

Let’s talk end of season 2. Pamela and John got married, which was very surprising! Tell us, did you see that coming when you initially began filming that season?
I did not see it coming, no. I actually was a little shocked that they were going to marry them right away. I thought that was going to be something that you usually wait a little longer for two people to come together, you know, on a show. But although I didn’t see it coming, I now know what the writers wanted to come out of it. And I think their dynamic is pretty great – their chemistry is really great – so I could see why they wanted to marry these two. And, at the end of the day, it’s like – the question is: Why did they get married? Was it love? Was it convenience? Was it money? Was it the company? So I think that that’s what, ultimately, we want to find out.

“You’ll have several characters who are taking on that role,” showrunner Cynthia Cidre tells TVLine of the plan for Season 3 (premiering Monday at 9/8c). Among them, the late J.R.’s own son, John Ross (played by Josh Henderson), who over the first two seasons has made his fair share of mayhem.
“He’s not exactly J.R., because we’re trying to draw him as a more layered version,” Cidre says. Add in John Ross’ new partner in mischief-making, Emma Ryland (played by Emma Bell), and her wicked grandmother Judith (Judith Light), throw in a woman scorned (Jordana Brewster’s Elena) and handsome stranger, and you have a strong, new foundation for villainy. “We have embraced bad this season more so than I think in Season 1 or 2,” Cidre offers. “And we are really, really are enjoying that!”
Southfork’s resident boozehound is about to encounter an 80-proof roadblock on her path to sobriety
Someone point Sue Ellen Ewing in the direction of the nearest Alcoholics Anonymous meeting — because she’s going to need it.
In celebration of the Season 3 premiere of TNT’s “Dallas” on Feb. 24, Warner Bros. Television and the Southfork Bottling Company have teamed up to launch J.R. Ewing Bourbon, which will hit spirit retailers’ shelves at the end of March. Just in time to tempt poor Sue Ellen, at a very vulnerable time during her long struggle with the demon alcohol.
For those with more control over their alcohol intake, J.R. Ewing Bourbon is a four-year-old, 80-proof bourbon that’s “well balanced and possesses a maturity that adds to its complexity,” according to a press release issued Wednesday.
“The nose is classic and slightly fruity, with notes of vanilla, oak sweetness and a touch of orange,” the release promises (close your eyes, Sue Ellen). “The taste profile is surprisingly mild, yet crisp, and exhibits a lightly spicy/honey taste that lingers on the palate.”
The spirit will initially launch in 14 states in the South and Midwest, with plans for a national and eventually an international expansion.
“It’s exciting to have the show and J.R.’s legacy, represented to the public in a new way,” “Dallas” executive producer and writer Cynthia Cidre said. “Plus, it gives the fans one more reason to celebrate ‘Dallas’!”

Patrick Duffy has said the effects of J.R. Ewing and Larry Hagman who played him are still felt on set at Dallas.
The third season of the Dallas reboot, which is about to air on TNT in the US, will be the first full season without Larry, who died of complications from cancer in November 2012 at the age of 81.
J.R. was shot to death in the classic plot twist in season two, to coincide with Larry’s death.
Patrick said: “His character was such a larger-than-life being that we still reference him on the show and a lot of the plot devices that we’re dealing with, we attribute to the character of J.R.: ‘Oh my God, if it hadn’t have been for that, then this wouldn’t have happened. Damn him.’ But there he is. He’s omnipresent and that’s good.”
Saying it had been hard to pick up the show again after Larry’s death, he continued: “Once we got the first couple of episodes after Larry’s death, handling the demise of J.R., we knew we could do anything and it was a matter of would the audience stay with us. And they did through the end of the season.”
Josh Henderson, who plays John Ross, said: “We’ll never be used to shooting this show without Larry. He’s always missed and he’s always a part of the story line, especially through my character.”
Just before the new series began filming in autumn 2011, Larry announced he had cancer but has carried on filming his role as J.R. He died while the second season was still being filmed.
