An angel (or so it seems at the beginning) takes J.R. on a "fantasy trip" during" which they both discover some startling surprises: Gary is a successful divorce lawyer in California, Bobby is a hustler in Las Vegas struggling to pay alimony payments for his kids, Cally is deep in trouble, living with an abusive husband and landing in jail probably for the rest of her life for killing him (in self-defense), there is another brother -- Jason, a successful land developer who keeps arguing with Bobby, especially over money, Kristin ends up as a professional con artist posing as a cop, while Ray is quite miserable at his job but very happy family-wise. Oh, yes, and there's is Cliff Barnes who, without J.R. to fight with, keeps climbing the ladder of success all the way to .... the White House! J.R. cannot believe any of this and keeps telling the "angel" (Joel Grey) that this just cannot be and that he "doesn't like it!" To which the "angel" keeps saying: "Nobody said you had to like it!" That's just the way it would have been had J.R. never been born. The two hour trip ends when J.R. wakes up and is relieved to find out it was just a dream. But the relief is very short-lived because it doesn't look like Heaven is exactly where the "angel" came from, and it seems that the ultimate tragedy in the life of J.R. Ewing occurs at the end.
