On the left is Miss Ellie’s grave from season one, clearly with no one buried beside her but…Ta daa! as if by magic when JR is buried in season 2 Jock’s grave is next to her (looks like it’s been there a while too)
Speaking of burials, since when was Jock Ewing’s body found? I ask this because in episode 8 of season 2 (of Dallas 2.0) during the funeral of JR we can clearly see a headstone marked ‘Jock Ewing’. Any original fan of Dallas will know that Jock’s body was never found after he died in a helicopter crash in South America in 1982. Ray, Bobby & JR all flew out to the crash site to find him (See episode ‘The Search’) and, as Bobby put it, after a lengthy search in a pond which only yielded Jock’s medallion,: “Nothing that goes in that lake is coming back up again”. His headstone wasn’t seen in the first season of Dallas 2.0 either, Miss Ellie has someone buried to the right of her but not the left (as seen when Bobby visits her grave in season 1 episode 8), but by the time of JR’s funeral, there is Jock’s headstone, to the left of Miss Ellie. Wouldn’t Wes Parmalee’s claim to be Jock (Wes was a con man who turned up in season 9 of Dallas-10 on DVD-claiming to be the deceased Ewing patriarch) be completely invalidated straight away if they had Jock’s body the whole time?! Or is the viewer supposed to believe that Jock’s body was discovered within the 20 years since the end of the original series and the start of the new one? WTF is it with the stupid rewrites of history on Dallas? Why can no one just research the facts and stick to them?!
