John Ross tells him that if he wants in on Ewing Energies then he needs to teach him the oil business and all the dirty tricks that he knows, and when he takes the company from Christoper and Elena then will cut him in, but if he screws him, he’ll make sure that he doesn’t get a dime of the money from the oil from Southfork, and he will put him back in the rest home. JR tells him that now he really is his son.
Final Thoughts: I really don't like Christopher, I felt so bad for John Ross, I like that they made him totally like JR, but with a lot of his qualities. I can't wait to start the second season. I love the twist of Rebecca really being Cliff's daughter. I also really like that they will be having the new company in the old Ewing Oil building.
