Watching the episodes surrounding "Jock's Will". It never hit me until this viewing: "Ewing Oil can have only one man a the helm, and that's the man who wants it most . . . At the end of one year, whichever son has managed to create the greatest gain for his half share of Ewing Oil will win 51% of stock of Ewing Oil to run whichever way he sees fit. . . In the unfortunate event that before this year is up, one son pre-deceases the other, the remaining son will automatically inherit his share, and he will take over the company." That last part seemed like a pretty strong thing to say. Do you suppose the writers were setting up a storyline that never happened? Especially interesting since they killed Bobby off a few seasons later.
