Who killed J.R.? That's the mystery propelling "Dallas" through the rest of its second season as a TNT revival. And that question hangs heavy in the upcoming episode (airing at 8 p.m. Monday), which confirms the sad truth every viewer knew was coming: glorious scoundrel J.R. Ewing has died, after decades of infamy dating back at least to 1980, when he was gunned down in his office. J.R.'s fate was sealed this time by reality.
