Full synopsis

Dallas TNT season two guilt and innocence

In the aftermath of the explosion on the rig. Everyone surivives the explosion but pregnant Pamela Rebecca is badly injured at the hands of her own father.

At the hospital, the doctor says only that they're doing everything they can. No one was killed, and all the injuries except Pamela's are minor.

Bobby frantically searches for Ann, having been separated from her before the explosion. He finally finds her in a treatment room, she's fine with just a concussion. She begs Bobby to forgive her for not telling him about Emma, thinking about what it would have been like if something had happened to one of them while he was still angry with her. They kiss and make up.

Harris Ryland intercepts Emma and Drew as they arrive. He tells her about her grandmother's "fall" and tells his daughter he's trying to give her space.

Drew lurks guiltily in the corner as his mom worries over Elena. He drives off angrily and confronts Roy, who tells him the explosion was supposed to go off tonight and it going off early must have been Drew's fault. Roy lays it on thick, telling Drew to get out of town to hide from his mistake.

At the hospital, Christopher is allowed to visit Pamela. The doctor explains she has an abdominal aorta that could burst and a placental abruption. The doctor recommends terminating the pregnancies to make the aortic surgery possible, but Pamela is against it, even though she could die. The doctor looks to Christopher, as her husband, to make a final decision if there's an emergency.

The doctors consult and plan to bring in the best neonatologist in the state, thinking there might be a way to save Pamela and the babies. Christopher blames himself for them getting hurt because he rushed to do the presentation. Bobby and Elena assure him it wasn't his fault and investigators are looking into it.

Judith wakes up with Harris at her bedside. He apologizes for everything he said, and for bringing Emma to Dallas in the first place. He says he fell for Ann because he was weak, like his father. Judith tells Harris if he can fix things between her and Emma, he'll be forgiven.

Emma slinks up to John Ross in the hallway and offers him pills. Harris interrupts, asking Emma to go see Judith.

John Ross is allowed in to see Pamela. She asks him if he thinks the accident was karma.

"Darling, if there were karma, I'd have been run over, shot, struck by lightning years ago," he says with an air of JR.

Pamela's mother Afton Cooper (Audrey Lander) arrives, John Ross called her. She says Pamela shouldn't have tried to build a relationship with her father.

Afton Cooper Dallas TNT season two

In the waiting area, Sue Ellen is annoyed that Afton is there, but mostly because she had an affair with JR years ago.

A man with the Texas Environmental Safety and Hazards Administration arrives to talk to Christopher. He says the initial investigation shows the methane was ignited in the flowpipe because it was over-pressurized -- as Christopher had feared.

Bobby shuts the interview down. John Ross turns on Christopher and blames him.

Later, Sue Ellen tells John Ross that Bobby is right, they have to stick together. John Ross starts to say that JR predicted something, but stops. Sue Ellen tells him Ken Richards is an old friend and one of the chairs of TESHA, she plans to call him.

Emma visits her grandmother, who tells her she only said bad things about Ann because she was afraid of Harris. Emma isn't buying it. Judith tells Emma if she takes her back to England she'll give her the company. Harris comes in and Judith gets frantic, pleading with Emma to "rescue" her from Harris. Emma is unmoved, even when Harris essentially pins his mother to her bed to "calm" her until a nurse can knock her out with drugs.

"She's out to get you," Emma tells her dad with an air of concern.

Harris gets a call from Cliff. He apologizes that Pamela got caught in the explosion, but Cliff apparently isn't worried.

Sue Ellen gets a rum and coke at a bar, waiting for Ken. When he arrives, she pretends to just be drinking cola. She says she was hoping for a reason to call him, aside from TESHA.

At the hospital, Afton warns Christopher to stay away from Pamela.

Suddenly, Pamela's vital signs crash. The doctor says they have to do the surgery. She asks again to terminate the pregnancy, but Christopher honors Pamela's wishes and refuses, even though it puts her life in jeopardy.

John Ross warns Christopher that if Pamela dies, it'll be his fault.

Emma slinks up to John Ross again, inviting him for coffee. But he doesn't want to leave Pamela's side. Emma tells Elena that any woman would be lucky to be with Drew.

The doctor comes out with news: they all made it.

Later at night, Emma drops by Elena's and sees Drew packing. He says he has to go to Midland for a few days to pick up equipment. She asks why he's packing everything.

He tells her she deserves someone better than him. She reminds him what he said about having to kick life's butt before it kicks yours. She kisses him.

At the hospital, after Afton visits with Pamela, Christopher drops in. Pamela asks if the explosion was his fault and he doesn't deny it.

Drew wakes up in bed with Emma and sees his half-packed bags.

Drew goes to see Roy and tells him he's not leaving town. He threatens to expose Roy if he turns him in.

Emma goes to visit her grandmother, but finds she's gone. Harris says she's "healing some place where she can't hurt herself."

He thanks Emma for defending him from her grandmother. "I think we're both finally safe from her now," he says.

Judith wakes up in the back of an ambulance being driven somewhere.

Bobby gets a report on an investigation into Pamela's whereabouts. She was last recorded in Abu Dhabi in 1989 with a man who was believed to be her husband.

"I thought you were done with her, Bobby," Ann says. "So did I, Annie, so did I," he says.

Ken visits Sue Ellen at Ewing Energies. He tells her there is evidence of sabotage on the rig.

At the hospital, John Ross is sure Cliff Barnes is behind it, trying to devalue the company.

They hear a code blue and rush to Pamela's room. The heart rate on both babies is dropping. John Ross and Christopher watch as they plummet and flat line as Pamela writhes in pain. Both babies are dead.
