"Bo and Luke are Back!" trumpeted the TV Guide ads for this episode, in which the series' original stars John Schneider and Tom Wopat return to their familiar roles of Bo and Luke Duke--while at the same time, their temporary replacements Coy and Vance Duke (Byron Cherry,Christopher Mayer) return to the obscurity whence they came. According to the plotline, Bo and Luke have come back to Hazzard after a triumphant NASCAR tour, just as Coy and Vance are forced to leave to care for a sick relative (in real life, the producers had met the monetary demands of Schneider and Wopat, and had welcomed them back to the fold in a last-ditch effort to improve the series' sagging ratings). Once everyone is back where they belong, the plot proper gets under way, as the Dukes try to save their pal Cooter (Ben Jones) from losing his garage to Boss Hogg (Sorrell Booke), who hopes to use the property for a mammoth shopping center--named after himself, of course!
