He wants to end it all, when an otherworldly creature calling himself "Adam" offers to show him what a world where J.R. Ewing was never born would be like. In this alternate reality, Gary would be the first son and would run Ewing Oil -- into the ground but become a successful lawyer. Jock would kill himself over it, leading to Miss Ellie's death "from a broken heart" two years later. Sue Ellen would be a successful soap opera actress married to Nicholas Pearce. Kristin Shepard would be a con artist, while Bobby would be a divorced deadbeat dad with a gambling addiction. There would be a third Ewing son named Jason, a conniving, manipulative real estate broker who got into the business by selling off Southfork. J.R. sees more of what a world where he was never born would be like: Ray Krebbs does not know that Jock is his real father, but has a happy family life despite a debilitating back injury; Cally Harper is still in Haleyville married to an abusive redneck; and Cliff Barnes is Vice-President of the United States of America, until the President suffers a stroke.
