  • The Beaudrys are back and are after Boss' moonshine still. In an effort to get Boss out of the way, they sabotage Jesse's car and frame Boss as the culprit. When Jesse has an accident during the ridge runners race its up to Boss to clear his name.moreless

    This episode was different that the others because for once, the Dukes weren't the ones in trouble - Boss Hogg was. I actually felt sorry for Boss too when he usually just annoys me. Rosco finally stood up to Boss which was a first and done in a very humourous way.

    The point where Jesse had his accident was tense despite knowing he would be fine. I know alot of people wouldn't agree but I think being able to do that says alot for the actors acting ability.

    I don't actually know what to write to do this episode justice and show what i'm thinking but basically it's a good episode and Boss being in trouble with the law is a nice change to Bo and Luke.moreless

      Milo: Me too.
      Bo: Yeah, well, you almost wrecked us back there, Milo.
      Luke: You Beaudrys got a lot of dang gall showing up in Hazzard County. We ain't forgotten the last time.
