  • Welcome, Waylon Jennings!

    This is the only episode to feature Waylon Jennings in person. Waylon Jennings comes to Hazzard with a museum. On his way into Hazzard he gets hijacked. Bo and Luke come along and they find him tied up on the side of the road. He tells them that he's been hijacked and they take off for the truck. However, they couldn't stop it. When they go back to tell Waylon that they lost it another truck pulls up. The truck that Bo and Luke chased just happened to be a decoy truck that a lady from the insurance company that insured the truck came up with. Now the two people who hijacked the decoy truck happened to work for Boss Hogg. And he will do anything to get his hands on that truck. Great episode!moreless

    • Bo: I still don't understand her turning on us like she did.
