Good points but there wasn’t much of a masterpiece as I’d have expected. I agree not much else could be done with oldPam but no way JR’s masterpiece was to get Christopher his mother’s money. I also don’t think prolonging the outcome of JR’s death would have been un-killing him. I think a longer approach like with Jock would have worked better. I also liked Mama Ryland and would have eventually made her Senator Ryland and one of John Ross’s closets allies.
