Hedging Your Bets

Series 1 - Episode 2 Hedging Your Bets



Larry Hagman’s eyebrows are so wild that they deserve a screen credit of their own, and in episode two they’re wriggling away like crazy as JR schemes to steal Southfork away from Bobby. On the surface, he appears to be contrite. There’s flattery for Sue Ellen at the Cattle Baron’s Ball (where he makes an appearance on a zimmer frame) and assurances for his brother that he’s now a changed man.

But don’t count the wily old bird out yet: just witness the way he reverts to his former ruthlessness when chastising John Ross – “Son, never pass up a good chance to shut up,” he scolds, before heading off for his physical therapy with an attractive blonde by the name of Candy.


JR quietly continues his underhand deal to seize control of Southfork, but becomes suspicious of John Ross's relationship with the Del Sol family. Rebecca suggests Christopher should cancel their honeymoon to focus on business, even though it means working with his ex-fiancee Elena - who is still trying to uncover the truth about the end of their engagement. Meanwhile, Bobby struggles to keep his diagnosis a secret. Reboot of the classic Texan soap, starring Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe and Larry Hagman.
