When he confronts him about it, Vincente threatens him and his family and reminds him that there was a video which can be edited basically to make it look like John Ross killed Marta.

    I’m pretty excited about tonight’s episode of Dallas. Things are really starting to get complicated, especially with John Ross being held for Veronica’s murder. He doesn’t seem to have a good grasp on what decisions are good ones. We all know that Veronica is bi-polar and selling her out probably wasn’t a good idea. Tonight’s episode is going to be on while I’m at work but a Dish co-worker suggested that I try the remote access app. It let’s me access live TV or anything I’ve already recorded right on my smart phone. It works great with the Hopper and Sling Adapter which makes it so easy to use. I’ve come to discover that the suspense of each new episode makes it almost impossible for me to wait until I get home to watch. Now I won’t have to wait – I’ll be able to watch the show tonight on my lunch break. I also wanted to mention that Christopher looked really happy when he found out that Rebecca really is pregnant with twins but he was reluctant because of her lying and his feelings for Elena.
