Two decades since viewers last saw them, the Ewings are back. Television's first family of drama, sabotage, secrets and betrayal gather at Southfork Ranch for the wedding of Bobby's adopted son, Christopher, to Rebecca Sutter. Also in attendance is John Ross, the son of J.R. and Sue Ellen, who returns to Dallas with Christopher's ex-girlfriend Elena Ramos, and discovers a major oil gusher on Southfork. When Bobby announces he intends to sell the ranch, John Ross fills him in on the discovery but Bobby refuses to allow drilling on Southfork as it goes against his late mother's wishes. John Ross enlists the help of none other than his estranged father J.R. to help him gain ownership of Southfork, but J.R. has an agenda of his own. Reunited for the first time since their breakup, Christopher and Elena realize someone else is responsible for the abrupt end of their relationship. They both point the finger at John Ross, but the real culprit turns out to be Christopher's mysterious new wife Rebecca. Meanwhile, the Ewings gain a new adversary when Bobby's wife Ann's past catches up with her.
