Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Convict Digger Jackson (Charles Napier) has escaped from prison, swearing revenge on Boss Hogg (Sorrell Booke). By and by, Jackson kidnaps Boss and holds him for ransom, but no one has any inclination to pay up--and the only people who could possibly rescue Boss, Bo (John Schneider) and Luke (Tom Wopat), are themselves fugitives, having been framed for a robbery committed by Jackson during his escape. Highlights include a climactic chase on horseback and a performance of "Jambalaya" by Freddie Fender, the latest victim of Boss' "celebrity speed trap." Originally scheduled for March 27, 1981, this episode was bumped forward to March 13.
