This year, tragedy visits Southfork. Jock Ewing - the tough, relentless founder of the vast Ewing Oil empire - dies in a helicopter crash. The family is devastated. But, after all, this is Dallas, so grief eventually gives way to maneuvering, scheming and dirty dealing over the future of the Ewing millions.
The fallout from Jock's death is just part of the drama in Season Five. Because there's more, much more. Sue Ellen and J.R. divorce and fight over custody of their little son. Pam and Bobby open their hearts to an adorable baby with a past ties to Southfork. Cliff Barnes has J.R. facing financial ruin - but soon it's J.R. holding all the aces and Cliff holding the bag. Add murder, kidnapping and a couple of suicide attempts, and even the great state of Texas doesn't seem big enough to contain Dallas.
