The Ewings are stunned to hear that JR, assumed still on business trip in Abu Dhabi, was fatally shot in a rather sleazy Mexican drug town hotel, apparently shot by a common thief while biding with an 'escort lady'. His legacy and last letters arouse surprising eulogies while Sue Ellen relapses in alcoholism, John Ross is consumed by the lust for revenge, Bobby plans to get it with JR's detective once things have cooled down. The oil barons club wake gets out of hand when Cliff Barnes barges in vindictively, only to be dragged out by Pamela, whom John Ross now completely rejects. To Harlan's horror, Emma decides to stay indefinitely on Southfork, Bobby spoils Anne's joy by bitterly scolding she had no right to withhold the truth from him so long and completely.
