John Ross decides to make a case against the sale by bringing everyone to his secret drilling site. Elena thinks there are a couple billion barrels of light sweet crude down there, but Bobby doesn't want the family tearing itself apart over money again. He reminds them that his mama forbade drilling on Southfork. John Ross says, "I think we're long past caring about Miss Ellie's precious little wishes." In my mind, Miss Ellie appears in a heavenly shaft of light to slap the Dirty Sanchez he calls a mustache clean off his face. On my TV, Bobby quietly warns John Ross against ever speaking his mama's name in his presence again. The version that happened in my mind was better. Then John Ross and Christopher come to blows after John Ross snits that he's not really a Ewing and Christopher's father sold him. I... do not know the history of this. Bobby stops the fight and throws John Ross off his land.
Later that night, John Ross and Christopher gripe to their respective ladies about each other. They have the common decency to do this without their shirts. Rebecca senses that Christopher is upset about John Ross and Elena's relationship, even though he denies it.
The next day, Bobby and Christopher talk to a lawyer named Mitch Lobell about selling Southfork to a land conservancy when a sheriff walks in. Reluctantly, he serves Bobby with papers. John Ross is trying to stop the sale of Southfork and is contesting Miss Ellie's will to do so. Bobby promises to give John Ross the fight of his life. Everyone makes worried faces. So Bobby turns around and kicks John Ross and all his workers off Southfork. John Ross looks like a little pipsqueak when he sulks up at Bobby and promises, "We're not done here, Uncle." I wouldn't bet on this guy on anything bigger than a game of Quarters.
Elena meets up with Rebecca at the dress shop. She compliments Rebecca's choice and then, for some reason, asks about her dead parents. Rebecca gets around to letting Elena know that she knows Christopher and Elena used to be a thing. Rebecca smiles the whole time, but her eyes look just a little too intense.
