I agree. It's a fatal flaw the Dallas producers are guilty of. Mary Crosby as Kristin, Priscilla Pointer as Rebecca Wentworth, Morgan Brittany as Katherine Wentworth, Alexis Smith as Lady Jessica Montford and Timothy Patrick Murphy as Mickey Trotter just to name a few. Yes, Katherine and Lady Jessica managed to survive but there recurrence was short lived. The casting director really nailed with Mary Crosby as Kristin. She was wicked and the above scene illustrates the potential the character could have become in Dallas. I didn't like the fact they killed her off and her first born.
