Analysis
J.R. and Ray leave a woman named Wanda and her friend Marilou in the Westerner, a motel in Waco. As J.R. and Ray are leaving in J.R.'s car, a truck with Luther Frick and Payton Allen drives into the parking lot. Frick is looking for his wife, who never came home last night. He is furious, evident by breaking down of a wrong door. He apologizes to the startled man and they find the right door, room 107. Inside, Frick finds his wife naked on the bed. Allen finds her friend Marilou in an ajoining room. Frick slaps his wife and orders her to get dressed. Frick searches the room for clues. He finds a J.R. Ewing business card on the floor.
At Southfork, Sue Ellen gives Ellie food in bed. Ellie is suffering from migranes. Ellie suggests that they make Pam more comfortable. Think of her not as Digger's daughter, but Bobby's wife. She is very good for Bobby. Sue Ellen nods, then leaves. Bobby calls Pam and says that a hurricane may be coming. He asks her to call him in an hour to see if he will be staying in town. Just then, Lucy arrives home. Her school let out early as a precaution. Sue Ellen says that they should take precautions and batten down the hatches. Lucy is "la dee dah" about it. Pam says that she is smart.
Jock tells Bobby that he has make dinner plans with Punk Anderson and some other old boys. Bob says that he is going home. Jock persuades him to stay in town.
Frick tells Allen that they are going to do to the Ewing women what the Ewing men did to their women. Justice will be served.
J.R. and Ray arrive home. By now the winds are blasting past the house. J.R. tells Ray that they must capture the loose livestock. Ray goes to start the job, while J.R. runs inside to change. Sue Ellen asks where he has been, and why he did not call. J.R. tells her that he is in a hurry. Last night, he had to work late. He was too busy to call. J.R. leaves the house to help Ray.
Frick and Allen arrive at Southfork. Sue Ellen answers the door. They say that they are stranded, and they need to make a phone call. Sue Ellen lets them in.

Frick makes the call while Allen looks at Lucy. They apologize for coming to their home; Sue Ellen says not to apologize. She goes to get lunch while Lucy starts a fire. She tells Allen that her uncle and the foreman went to Waco, and they just arrived home. Frick tells Sue Ellen that the auto service company will not be there for three hours. Allen tells Frick what he has learned. Luther becomes more vengeful while Allen laughs with delight. Frick tells him to shut up. Pam comes in, and Lucy introduces them.
Bob listens to the radio. He tells the secretaries to go home. J.R. calls and says to stay there. Some strangers are going to help them round up the cattle. The roads are impassable.
Ray is thrown from his horse in the fierce winds. Lucy gets J.R. J.R. arrives and they pick up Ray, who has hurt his leg badly. They drive back to the house. Ellie gets up. Sue Ellen tells her to stay in bed. She then sees a truck entering the driveway. She runs downstairs. Lucy calls the doctor. Pam and Sue Ellen tend to Ray. While the Ewings are in a commotion, Frick and Allen lock the door, then grin at the Ewings. They say that it is not going to be easy to decide which females to take. The Ewings lookup in horror.
