John Ross, Christopher and Elena hang out in the kitchen, drinking beer and musing over the Ewing family problems. They think Ewing Oil would be bigger than Exxon if not for all the fighting. Suddenly, Christopher realizes he and John Ross could be working together. John Ross thinks he's drunk. They hash things out off-screen, then come to Bobby with their big idea, as well as an IOU for the first share of Ewing Energies. Bobby is confused. "Christopher and I have decided to go into business together," John Ross explains. "With Elena as a business partner." What a terrible, terrible idea. At first Bobby thinks they're joking, because who doesn't like to kid around with a guy who could die at any moment? Christopher says he and John Ross will be equal partners so there won't be any fighting. Except over Elena. "We thought it was time for a little peace for this family," Christopher says. Bobby is skeptical at first, but ends up wishing them all well.
J.R. drinks some whiskey, and then signs the deed before he can change his mind. Bobby's asleep, so J.R. leaves it on his bed. He doesn't get all the way back out the door before Bobby stirs and calls him back. The soundtrack here is just lovely, by the way. Bobby's stunned to see the deed. "You're welcome," J.R. says brightly. "No need to get emotional!" "You're still not off the hook for how you got this in the first place," Bobby says. J.R. smiles. "If you die, I'll get that back." It looks creepy on paper, but J.R. doesn't say it in a threatening way.
Rebecca gets a call from Tommy, who's still pressuring her for the key card. "You owe me," he says. She hangs up on him and goes to get a gun out of her safe deposit box. At the same time, Tommy meets with Frank again at the bar. He tries to explain himself, but Frank cuts him off. "Your services are no longer required." Tommy chases after him and Frank handily shoves him into the counter. "Forget my name," Frank says. There's a guy standing right there, pretending not to notice anything.
Bobby gets a call from his lawyer, who tells him they finally have a lead on Veronica/Marta. They've found a cloud storage service she used. They don't have access yet, but apparently she had gigabytes of documents and videos. It's probably mostly just boring sex tapes. The lawyer says if they find what they're looking for it'll void the deal and get them off the hook with the Venezuelans. "The question is," says the lawyer, "if we find proof J.R. was part of the fraud, are you ready to send your brother to jail for it?" Bobby thinks hard. His aneurysm swells like an overfilled water balloon. Finally, he says, "Tell me what you find." As soon as he hangs up, he starts having another seizure. At the sound of his monitors blaring, everyone rushes into the room and finds him flailing about. The ambulance rushes him off to the hospital.
