'Dallas' Gets Intense: 6 Favorite Moments From This Week's Episode

Elena (Jordana Brewster) demanded Bobby (Patrick Duffy) and the Ewings make things right on this
week's episode of Dallas.
On Monday night's episode of TNT's Dallas, Elena was on fire and hellbent on getting restitution for the wrongs of the past (and present). Below are our 5 Favorite Moments from "Hurt":

1. The hour kicked off with Drew Ramos' funeral but quickly turned into an Elena offensive at Southfork. After the opening theme there was a long scene, featuring eight actors, in which Elena confronted Bobby and the Ewings with the fact that she knew they set Cliff up to take the fall for J.R.'s murder, and revealed her motive for helping him.  Elena was furious that J.R. swindled her father out of his land and left him drilling a "rock" until he died. It ultimately led to Drew's death as well.  Jordana Brewster gave a fantastic performance as Elena finally spilled her guts and laid out her demands for the Ewings. Patrick Duffy's excellent direction helped make the 10 minutes leading up to the first commercial so intense viewers needed the break in order to take a deep breath.

2. When Sue Ellen (the Emmy worthy Linda Gray) confronted Bobby about his lies and J.R.'s letter, she angrily said the one thing that would hurt him the most: "Miss Ellen would be ashamed of you."
