John Ross and Pamela admire her gumball wedding ring on her private jet. Cliff calls to tell her everything is playing out in their favor, the ultimate payback for what Jock did to him. Later, John Ross tells her they fight all their battles together and will take Cliff down together. He pulls out the flight history and discovers Cliff was in Mexico the night JR died. He calls Bobby, who urges John Ross to get to Southfork ASAP.
From his office Bobby calls Bum and tells him it’s time to put the plan in motion. When John Ross and Pamela arrive Bobby tells them they still don’t have enough to bring Cliff to justice. Pamela still doesn’t think Cliff knew she would be on the rig. Bobby thinks he can shed some light.
