Out of the fire, into the frying pan: Southfork in flames is just the start of a season of hot-blooded romance and sizzling schemes. Pam and Bobby split up and other folks team up: Miss Ellie with Clayton Farlow and Sue Ellen with a hunky Dallas darlin' young enough to be her son. Meanwhile, it seems the brothers Ewing may be sharing control of Ewing Oil, guiding the company to more and mightier millions. But sharing makes J.R. as happy as a wildcatter drilling dust, so you can just imagine the conniving to come. Yup, Series 7 is a web of backroom deals and courtroom drama, jealousy and treachery, blackmail and bourbon. And in the center sits J.R., hiding his guile behind a big ol' Texas smile.
