At the bar, John Ross' assistant, Candace -- the one Ryland and Judith have tasked with getting his semen on the dress that the underage prostitute was wearing when photographed with John Ross -- made her move. She said there was "a lot" of him she wanted to see outside of the office. Wink-wink. But John Ross had business to attend to. Nicolas said he couldn't go against Cliff's wishes, and he couldn't reason with him. Just then, an old "friend" of John Ross', Hunter McKay, noticed his buddy and called him and Nicolas over.

While Sue Ellen drank tea with Ann and wondered if she'd done the right thing turning on her son to stop the affair, Hunter, now a successful videogame entrepreneur, gave John Ross an idea to take Ewing Global public and get away from his family drama by gaining controlling interest. Elsewhere, the ladies drank champagne while Elena noted that Pamela seemed genuinely worried that John Ross might cheat on her with Candace, whose skirt length is the subject of an office pool. She later met with a female PI and put her on the case.

John Ross went home and told Pamela he'd found a way to get her dad out of their lives, but he was going to need her help. She said they're a team. AND WHY DID WE CUT AWAY FROM THEM HAVING SEX? Come on, Dallas. You're better than that!

At least we got to see Christopher and Heather get busy in the bed of a truck for a second until her ex Bo pulled up to tell her that he had to go work another job so she had to watch their kid. Christopher stepped in and told the boy it was bring a kid to work day at his office, and since he's the only kid he knows, he'd be doing him a favor hanging with him while his mother did real work. Supersweet, Christopher, but also way too soon. It's good to know Christopher had nothing to do at work that day but play with the arctic models.

Elena's PI posed as a Ewing Global employee and got Candace away from her desk long enough to sneak inside John Ross' office and plant a camera. John Ross made nice with his mother, so he could tell her about his plan to take the company public to get the money for the arctic play and dilute Cliff's shares. John Ross again promised that he's done cheating with Emma, so Sue Ellen said he had her support. Though he still needs the supermajority. He met with Nicolas at some kind of fairground and asked him to vote to take the company public and uncuff himself from Cliff. I couldn't tell if Nicolas was really considering it or not. So much business talk.

Christopher carried Michael (I guess we have to learn his name now) to Heather's car, and she told him about Bo getting addicted to pain pills when his bull riding career ended with an injury. Finally, the two of them admitted talking about money and babysitting isn't keeping it casual, and it turns out they're both okay with that.
