Even after all these years, Bobby bringing Christopher home and Pam thinking it was their adopted baby is absolutely spine-tingling. What a shot to the arm for a show whose second half of Season 4 and first half of Season 5 was somewhat anemic. Indeed, following "Starting Over" (how ironic), things go into motion: Bobby has to hide Christopher's real origins, Donna and Ray finally have their big confrontation and Ray's depression begins, Sue Ellen is out of the Southern Cross, Ewing Oil in the absence of Jock has been brought up, and the Barnes/Ewing feud has been reignited. Fascinating to watch Afton's progression. She's even lovelier than the first time around (even the singing!). What I truly can't make sense out of is what they're doing with Mitch. Admittedly, I am MUCH more impressed with McCloskey's acting this time around (in fact, he seems to be giving it his ALL to make this work) but it took me a while to realize why they kept giving him story outside of his marriage to Lucy. And it hit me: They are genuinely treating him like a recurring character like Donna and Afton who can stand on his own. The only problem being, Afton's stories are all clicking, his remain WTF.
