J.R. Ewing, a Texas oil baron, uses manipulation and blackmail to achieve his ambitions, both business and personal. He often comes into conflict with his brother Bobby, his arch-enemy Cliff Barnes and his long-suffering wife Sue Ellen.
Larry Hagman's former I Dream of Jeannie (1965) co-star Barbara Eden played Lee Ann De La Vega, a millionaire hellbent on revenge against J.R., in a five episode story arc in the final season. At the end of the story arc, she revealed that her surname was actually Nelson, a reference to Hagman's character Tony Nelson on I Dream of Jeannie (1965).
You wouldn't be trying to blackmail old J.R., would you?
"Swan Song", the ninety minute episode that killed off Bobby Ewing at the end of the 1984-85 season, is edited into two separate episodes in syndication.
