Ann Ewing is the third wife of Bobby Ewing. Introduced by mutual friend Sue Ellen, Bobby was instantly struck by Ann's quiet strength and beauty. A woman who can work a gun and ride a stallion, Ann fits right into the Ewing lineup of beautiful women who know their way around a ranch. Ann's first marriage was to big-time Texas transportation executive Harris Ryland, who is as sly as he is rich. He continues to haunt Ann in her new life, teasing her with a painful memory about a daughter they may have had together. Sue Ellen and Ann both made deals with Ryland in order to make the Ewing's family problems go away. In the end, Ann managed to get Ryland on tape trying to blackmail her, but it seems clear her problems with him are not about to go away.
