2. Why Season 9 Was Only ‘Just A Dream’

Dallas launched Patrick Duffy’s acting career into the stratosphere when he took on the role of younger brother “Bobby Ewing.” Surprisingly the star left the show in 1985 but quickly returned in 1986. The only problem was, Bobby had been killed off in the season Duffy left. Quick fix? That whole season was “just a dream.” Nothing to see here, another soap opera plot crisis avoided. Duffy went on to star in the show until it was cancelled and later reprized his role in the TNT remake from 2012 to 2014.
