Dallas is coming back! The season 1 finale was full of manipulations, cunning, lying, and shocking twists. Just when it looked like Christopher and John Ross would be able to put aside their differences and actually work together, it all came crashing down. And, then there’s the biggest reveal of them all … Christopher is married not simply to a lying Rebecca, but to the daughter of the Ewing’s biggest enemy, Cliff Barnes!

Spoiler alert: This preview contains some Dallas spoilers for season 2. 

As shown by this first Dallas promo, the battle between the younger Ewing cousins will be in full swing this season … literally! Their agreement to work together certainly didn’t last long and any attempt to rekindle that deal has definitely failed.

The Ewings are back! The Ewing Insult! The Ewing Double-Cross! The Ewing Grin!

The battle for Ewing Energies heats up as Christopher and John Ross clash over opposing visions for the company. As Christopher seeks to gain the upper hand in his divorce from Rebecca Sutter, a game-changing revelation turns everything on its head, causing the entire family to put their differences aside and rally together — except for John Ross, who uses J.R.’s dirty little tricks to take revenge on Christopher and Elena.

With Christopher and Bobby at the helm of Ewing Energies, and Elena working to gain a stronger foothold within the company, J.R. and John Ross strike a deal to wrestle control of Ewing Energies away from them. Meanwhile, Pamela Rebecca Barnes schemes with John Ross to take half of Christopher’s shares in Ewing Energies to fulfill her father’s desire for revenge against the Ewings. And Ryland’s mother, Judith, (guest star Judith Light) proves to be just as evil as her son.
