Family Business

Series 1 - Episode 9 Family Business



There’s just one episode to go of this consistently enjoyable revival, but it looks as if Bobby’s days are numbered. First he got stomach cancer, now he’s having a seizure at Southfork and is told by the medics that he has an aneurysm on the brain.

Yet even in the face of the worst possible news, he retains the calm
of a Zen master as he recuperates in his pyjamas on his sleigh bed, even granting forgiveness to JR when the scheming old tortoise deigns to
show his face.

Maybe it’s the fact that he’s died before and been miraculously resurrected that gives Bobby that inner serenity. Whatever the cause, it’s certainly a quality that’s worth all the oil in Texas.


Bobby is rushed to hospital, sparking an unaccustomed mood of contrition and co-operation in the Ewings. Christopher and John Ross bury the hatchet, deciding to go into business together, and JR returns to hand back Southfork's deeds to his brother. Meanwhile, Harris Ryland finds out about Sue Ellen's attempt to blackmail the medical examiner, and Tommy attacks Rebecca after a meeting with his mysterious buyer goes awry.
