At the wake at Southfork, Ray and Lucy swap JR stories and try to comfort Bobby, who acts cold. He moves on to Dallas bigwigs Jerry Jones, Mark Cuban and Mayor Mike Rawlings, who all have a JR story. Meanwhile, Sue Ellen chats about being married to him with his other exes, Cally and Mandy. They agree he was bad as hell but as hot as they come and admire Sue Ellen for making her peace with JR. She admits it was easy after all of his lying and cheating. Later, John Ross accuses Pamela of putting her father ahead of their deal and then catches Emma alone with a bottle of Clonazepam. He takes one and she takes one too. Back downstairs Sue Ellen tells Gary she has never wanted a drink more. Cliff Barnes suddenly busts in to loudly pay his disrespects. John Ross accuses him of killing JR. He wishes he had. Without JR there is nothing keeping him from taking the Ewings down. Pamela gets him to leave, but another drunk well-wisher pipes up that JR was a prick. Chris knocks him out and a full-on brawl breaks out. Later, Chris promises to help John Ross avenge JR’s death. Ann brings Bobby a drink as Carlos and his affiliates arrive. He has Sgt. Ruiz with him, as well as the medical examiner. They affirm JR was the victim of a robbery and the killer might not likely be found. John Ross calls bullsh*t and leaves. Emma follows him outside and they go at it in the back seat of a car. Back inside, Bobby and Ann get ready for bed and she begs him to talk to her. He snaps about her omission about her daughter. He has been very tolerant of her but she has made him feel isolated and insignificant. She will do anything to make things right. He walks away.
Sue Ellen lets herself into JR’s room and opens the letter he left her - but slugs down a drink before reading it, then a bigger one.
The family gathers at the gravesite for the funeral, talking turns to speak. Christopher speaks about JR letting him in when his mom left. Sue Ellen speaks of meeting JR as Miss Texas and falling hopelessly in love with the charming scoundrel. But he was enough to drive a girl to drink. She reveals she got drunk last night to read a letter he left her. She reads it to them now. He loved her the moment he saw her and loves her now more than he ever did. When he got back to Dallas he wanted to have dinner with her. Yes, she would have said. He was the love of her life and she breaks down by his casket. Bobby takes her back to her seat, then speaks. It has always been easy for him to do good because he could count on JR to do bad. Now he is lost. JR is lowered into the ground and later, when everyone is gone, John Ross sites alone while Chris watches over him. Bum shows up with a message from JR and hands over a box.
