Episode Summary

Dallas: War of the Ewings
Dallas: War of the Ewings" begins with a scene of Bobby Ewing in the shower. He turns arounds and says 'Good morning'. The same scene from thirteen years ago, when Pam woke up from her "dream". Sue Ellen Ewing steps into the shower with him and gives him a kiss... it's then turns out, that it's is actually J.R. Ewing's bad dream. Sue Ellen comes in to his room and wakes him up, reminding him that they're planning to have lunch.

J.R. reads the morning paper at breakfast, seeing that his company, Weststar Oil, is rated the number 1 independent oil company in Texas. Ewing Oil, now owned by Bobby and Sue Ellen, is second.

J.R. asks his banker to get him a loan, so he can plan a hostile takeover of Ewing Oil. He's told that his net worth won't cover such a large amount. Anita Smithfield, J.R.'s lawyer and lover comes over and J.R. tells her he's tired of making offers to get Ewing Oil back - he plans on splitting Bobby and Sue Ellen up in a 'divide and conquer' setup. He also tells her that he has discovered geological reports that indicate there's oil under Ray Krebbs' ranch, which J.R. intends to use a collateral for his loan.moreless

  • This is the second reunion movie of the long running series "Dallas." This reunion focused less on the new generation than the first reunion movie, but was surprisingly lifeless.

    As a lifelong fan of Dallas, I was absolutely thrilled with the first reunion movie "J.R.Returns." It contained some of the classic elements of the series despite a somewhat ailing Larry Hagman (J.R.Ewing). Many fans felt the second reunion film would be even better but nothing could be further from the truth. In the "War of the Ewings" everything seems tired. Despite a nice barroom brawl and some of J.R.'s typical deviousness, the writing seems forced and this reunion fails to remind fans of why this was once the best series on television. For fans of "Dallas" enjoy the reruns of the series and the first reunion movie and only watch this one if you are a diehard. It was good to see Steve Kanaly (Ray Krebbs) who was not featured in the first reunion film.moreless
