Except in Reunion/Secrets/Return Engagements/Power Play/Second Thoughts/KL: A Family Matter/KL: Daniel/ KL: New Beginnings ?Yes, and clearly, Gary was more than welcome to come visit anytime for as long as he wanted.
JR plotted to keep Gary away from Southfork on multiple occasions. Even to the point of wanting Lucy married to Alan Beam to achieve that. On the evening of the reading of Jock’s Will, JR intends to have his limousine on standby the next day, ready to drive Gary from meeting their mother at Southfork straight to the airport. Because JR does not want Gary to stay. JR says in two different episodes of Knots Landing that he is counting on Abby Cunningham to keep Gary out of Dallas. In New Beginnings, JR admits to Abby that Gary is dangerous to him and would be capable of making his life miserable.
On Dallas, JR told Valene that he might send people to keep her out of Dallas permanently but Bobby and Lucy overheard this. In the Knots Landing episode, Land of the Free, Valene and Gary state that when Valene came back to Texas, JR’s “boys” wouldn’t let her near the ranch, so she went to the sheriff’s office but as the law were tight with Gary’s family, so she couldn’t do anything. JR grabbing baby Lucy is shown as a flashback sequence in the fifth episode of Knots Landing.Yeah, I don't know what show those folks were watching, but I never got the impression that Val and Gary were welcome to come visit Lucy at Southfork "anytime they wanted." At least not pre-Knots Landing. Or that they were both invited to move to Southfork to raise Lucy there when she was little.
Forgive me if I’ve missed something but that doesn’t sound too welcoming to me.
