  • Bo falls and hits his head while being chased by Roscoe. Bo suffers amnesia and is brainwashed by Boss Hogg. Boss has Bo thinking he is his son. Next Boss sends Bo on a moonshine run to Chickasaw County hoping Bo breaks his probation.

    This episode made no sense to me whatsoever. To have a Duke do what a Hogg tells him amnesia or not is ridiculous because the whole storyline is suppose to be Dukes do not like Hoggs and visa versa and this episode breaks that tradition. There are very few Duke episodes that I can criticise but this one just did not make sense. Bottomline for me is the Duke family should stay on one side of the fence and the Hogg family the other. I mean after all isn't that what the story is suppose to be about? HUH! LOL! :-)
  • Bo gets amenesia and Boss gets a son. UGH!

    While on a boar hunting trip, when Bo is being chased by Boss and Roscoe his car runs off the road, and he gets out and walks. Bo hits his head on a log and gets amnesia and is told that he is Boss Hogg's son. I love the scene where he finds out. The doctor says that Bo will be back to normal in 3 or 4 days. Bo is taken to the Boar's Nest which is closed for inventory. Boss feeds him what he says is his favorite food. Then he leaves his keys at the Boar's Nest Bo takes them goes into Hazzard. While on his way to find his daddy, he runs Daisy and Luke off the road (which is totally out of character). Bo while back at the Boar's Nest is asked if he has ever been to Chickasaw County and he says no. Daisy says he has been there a million times Luke. He then is taken to where he is going to start his moonshine run in a gray van. He goes on the moonshine haul through Chickasaw County. When he get to there, Daisy and Luke ask him to pull him over. He throws a punch at Luke. Luke throws Bo against the van he hits his head on that door. He is hidden gets his memory back. Asks what happened. He thought he was going boar hunting. Daisy says you did and caught the biggest boar in Hazzard County. In the meantime Boss loses his fortune and is very upset. It was a great episode.
  • Boss Hogg gets a son.

    When Bo goes on a hunting trip Boss and Rosco chase him. When Bo crashes his loaner car from Cooter, he tries to escape on foot. Instead, he falls and hits his head on a log and goes unconscious. Boss and Rosco bring him to the hospital and when he wakes up he gets amnesia, and Boss tells him that he’s his son. At the Boar’s Nest Boss tells Bo that their enemies are Luke, Daisy, and Uncle Jesse, and that he’s never to go near them. Bo goes on believing that he’s Boss’ son while Luke, Daisy, and Uncle Jesse are out searching for him. As Luke and Daisy are looking for him Bo shows up to ask him a question and then he notices that they’re some of the Dukes and he takes off. Luke and Daisy chase him but Bo runs them off the road. When Uncle Jesse sees him Boss and Rosco quickly grab him and take off with him so that Uncle Jesse couldn’t talk to him. Back at the Boar’s Nest Boss is having Bo ship a load of shine over into Chickasaw County. Luke and Daisy sneak in and they hear what’s going on. However, Rosco and Cletus catch them, and Luke and Daisy run out of there to tell Uncle Jesse what’s going on. They split up to find Bo, and Luke and Daisy run him off the road so they could talk to him. As Luke is trying to tell Bo that he’s a Duke and not a Hogg Bo tries to punch him but Luke pushes Bo into the van. He hits his head and goes unconscious again. Luke takes Bo and Daisy takes the General away from where the van is so that nobody can see them near that shine. Boss and Rosco not only find the shine but so does Sheriff Little. Little destroys the shine, and Luke, Daisy, Uncle Jesse try to wake up Bo. When Bo finally does wake up he remembers who he is but he doesn’t know what he’s doing there. Luke, Daisy, and Uncle Jesse all hug Bo, just thankful that he was back with them. I thought this was a great episode, however, I wish that they showed Luke, Daisy, and Uncle Jesse tell Bo what had been going on.
  • Bo Duke run shine through “shooting” Sheriff Little’s territory? Yeah right. But it’s true. Now, what would make Bo do something that stupid? How about a temporally case of amnesia and Boss’ criminal mind.

    On a trip boar hunting with a friend, Rosco and Boss chase Bo. Wrecking his car, Bo attempts to flee on foot and falls. He falls unconscious and is victim to amnesia and Boss’ next moonshine operation. Right through Chickasaw County, home to “shooting” Sheriff Little. Scenes with amnesia-stricken Bo and the Dukes were too short, but an excellent episode otherwise.
