The way Bobby treated Jenna was disgraceful. In season seven Bobby told Jenna that she and Charlie and him had a great future together. Then just a few weeks later when Pam tells Bobby she’s marrying Mark, you can see his face just fall. He sounds so disappointed as he tells her that he guesses he misinterpreted how well things were going between Pam and him. That shows that this whole time he’s been romancing Jenna and leading her to believe they’re headed towards marriage, he’s just been keeping Jenna as an insurance policy so in case he can’t get Pam back, he’ll still have Jenna! What a horrible thing to do to her! If Bobby and Jenna were just casually dating, it wouldn't have been understandable, but then he proposes to Jenna, while still in love with Pam. Then even after asking Jenna to marry him and her accepting, Bobby still keeps pursuing Pam. It shows how badly his parents spoiled him, and that apparently, he has never changed in that aspect. He feels like he’s entitled to do whatever will ensure his happiness, no matter how badly he has to mislead women to accomplish that. It’s a great example that it isn’t a story of Bobby being the completely good guy he believes himself to be. That may be his most irritating quality – that he acts so self-righteous to others. He’s so self-absorbed that he either doesn’t realize or doesn’t care that what he’s doing to Jenna is terrible. Bobby lectures others on their ethics, but believes he’s beyond reproach. Dallas was never a story told in black and white of heroes against villains. It’s a story told in shades of gray where all the characters are flawed – some more than others – but all the characters in the main cast have redeeming qualities too. Bobby has a lot of redeeming qualities and that’s why the audience seems to forgive him for misleading Jenna so badly. People can understand how it’s possible that someone could be in love with two people at once. As unfair as it was for Bobby to tell Jenna they have a wonderful future together and ask her to marry him, all the while going behind her back and trying to reconcile with Pam, it would have been even worse if he’d gone through with the marriage! Jenna was a nice, good woman doing an admirable job as a single mother supporting her daughter and herself, and she deserved better than Bobby – a man who would have been willing to choose to marry her while continuing to love another woman more.
