    A thought came to mind this morning. What if Dallas had been created with a premise like the equally brilliant Falcon Crest? This is what came to mind:


    Feeble minded Lucy and her boyfriend Kit are running around the stable at night. A drunk Garrison emerges and confronts them inside. He assumes Kit is hurting Lucy and goes after him. They go up to the top, where a struggle ensues. Lucy pushes Garrison over the hayloft, and he falls on top of a pitchfork. Miss Ellie and her butler played by Nerve Villechaize appear. They put Garrison into a car and lead it over a ledge, where it goes up in flames. Ray Southworth, Garrison's only known child, is an airline pilot who lives in a brownstone in NY City with wife Donna and their teenaged son and daughter. Ray arrives home and is told of his father's accident. They go to Texas for the funeral and are reunited with his aunt's family. Gary Ewing is Lucy's father who runs the ranch and Bobby is the playboy youngest son who is courting the feisty Pam Barnes. Miss Ellie famously responds to the Butler if they'll be staying long, "Only for the night." Ray and Donna explore Garrison's ranch house (the one that later went to McKay on real Dallas) and become homesick. After the funeral, the will reading is held. Ray is left his father's section of Southfork, and Miss Ellie makes an offer thinking he has no plans to remain. Is she ever upset to learn he intends to move his family to Southfork and run his father's ranch. The show sets up the inner family feud. Miss Ellie's murky lawyer Jeremy Wendell is also her lover. Ray's wealthy mother and ex-wife of Garrison Cherie Simmons makes a couple visits and clashes with Miss Ellie. Jock runs Ewing Oil in Dallas and makes brief visits before dying of a heart attack near the end of the season. His will reveals Ewing Oil will be left to a J.R. Ewing. "Who is J.R. Ewing?" Miss Ellie asks, lol.

    That's interesting. Did Falcon Crest have a young, Lucy type character? What was her name? I haven't seen Dynasty either, but from what I've heard, they had sort of a Lucy type character played by Heather Locklear.

    Falcon Crest's young girl was the youngest daughter of the family Emma, but she was mentally ill and quite mild unlike Lucy.
