Past History

JR Ewing returns to SouthFork once more. After time in a nursing home for a few years, JR is back with a new plan to take back what he feels is rightfully his and restore himself to power as the true heir to SouthFork and show his son John Ross how it is really done. JR will use John Ross to get SouthFork back from Bobby. After years of fighting over power and oil with his brother, JR's relationship with Bobby is as strained as ever. JR will stop at nothing to take back power and seize control of SouthFork.
