Well, we’re back to the Ann Ewing show and what better way to start off than Sue Ellen visiting our heroine in jail. Let me just say, orange is not the most flattering for our fair Mrs. Ewing. Sue Ellen lets Ann know that they all have something planned for the sentencing. What, a song and dance number? I’m not all that familiar with legal processes, not being a criminal and all, but doesn’t the judge just sentence the person. I thought the time for witnesses was at the trial. Oh well, if there’s a dance number I just hope that it involves John Ross not wearing a shirt.
Seriously – how long can sentencing take?
Out in the hall, Sue Ellen is giving Elena more shit about their contract. She doesn’t understand why Elena hasn’t done anything. I mean sure, her boyfriends mom is in jail for attempted murder, but let’s squeeze in some time for drilling – and I don’t’ mean Christopher. Christopher tries to defend Elena, but Sue Ellen puts her dear nephew in his place. After they leave, Sue Ellen whines to John Ross that she is tired of asking for what is hers. I so don’t get this complete turnaround of Sue Ellen’s character. John Ross asks her ‘what if you don’t need to ask for it – just take it?’.
I finally figured out the name of the Venezuelan Drug Lord – Vicente! He is in cuffs talking to some diplomat/politician – is there a Venezuelan ambassador to Texas? Vicente is bitching about his treatment and the guy tells him that he gives Venezuelans a bad name. He knows that Vicente killed Not Marta, but has important friends in Caracas. They pulled strings to have him extradited. He will remain in custody until his flight leaves the next day. I kind of get the feeling that the writers are playing a little fast and loose with common extradition law, but what do I know.
Christopher and Lou are meeting with Pam and her lawyer – who can’t suck more than Lou does. Pam just wants a half stake in Ewing Energies. Christopher says no – he will give her 7% but wants joint custody and an annulment. Is an annulment something that you can just both agree on? I thought that you had to be granted an annulment and they were already denied. It may not be a waste of money to have a lawyer on retainer for fact checking. Pam counters with 10%, joint custody and an annulment. They agree and Lou finally speaks up saying that this agreement is final. Way to be part of the discussion Lou!
Sue Ellen and John Ross are going over Elena’s contract. If I were Elena, I would just have someone double check how binding it is. Chances are good that Lou is the one that drew it up, so there have to be some major loopholes. John Ross tells Sue Ellen about Drew and the morals clause. Sue Ellen realizes that the only reason he has been ‘lavishing’ her with attention is because he wants her. John Ross insists that he wants a partner.
