I noticed in the following season via rewatches on my DVD's that following the sad death of Jim Davis, the Producers beefed up the character of Miss Ellie in relation to JR's shenanigans. She didn't stand much nonsense out of JR after Jock had died. So perhaps Miss Ellie did anger the best. I will never forget her asking Ray to get the shot gun after a reporter dared to knock the door at Southfork looking for news of the helicopter crash involving Bobby & JR. Barbara was excellent in those scenes. It just shows how very well cast & how very well written the original Lorimar produced Dallas was.
