Yes, he was.

Do you remember exactly when Daniel Markel took over? I think it was Fall 1990, because one of the first scenes I remember (in addition to his shower scene) is him in a Santa Claus suit, but I could be off by a year.

Dallas was in its dying days then. I think I watched faithfully and I don't remember any of this. Clayton was not Dusty's father?

No, Dusty was actually the son of Jessica and that Atticus guy, and Clayton and Amy had adopted him after Jessica went batty.

Except for the Stephanie Rogers story, I have no words for how much I loathed the 1989-90 season of Dallas. Clayton and Ellie getting involved in back to back Murder She Wrote stories, Cliff and JR becoming environmentalist advocates, April becoming nice, the pointless Pam look-alike played by that Pam recast etc. The final season was only a little bit better, but at least it had some fun to it(Susan Lucci, Barbara Eden, bitchy Michelle).

KNOTS LANDING:

Paige has doubts about marrying Tom. Marriage would be great, Tom says enthusiastically. He's really a homebody-he'd love popping dinners into a microwave, renting and being domestic with Paige. That's not her idea of fun, Paige replies. Besides, people change, a cynical Paige points out. She used to like O. Henry; now she thinks the writer's just OK. What if she got married, then changed her mind about Tom? She'd move in with him, Paige tells her lover, but living together is the biggest commitment she could handle. Not good enough, says Tom. He's holding out for marriage.

On her way out, Paula runs into Paige and offers some advice. Some men are the marrying kind, and some are the single kind, Paula says... and the single kind are monumental bores. Unwilling to turn out like her mother, and mindful of Paula's advice, Paige finally accepts Tom's proposal.

CRAZY FOR YOU:

The fan poses a threat to Karen, who is enormously popular as the host of OPEN MIKE, but if they leak the story to the press it could be great publicity. That would be risking Karen's life, Jeff protests. Perhaps Karen would get so scared she'd leave the show, Dianne muses. After all, Dianne gripes to Jeff, she has paid her dues in the business, covering mall openings, bake sales and pet shows. Inexperienced Karen waltzed in and became a star overnight.

Unknown to Karen, one of the autograph seekers outside is Wayne, the man who's been tailing her. Karen signs a photo for Wayne, who tacks it up on a wall filled with clips of Karen.
