In the series retrospective episode, Duane "Dog" Chapman, his wife Beth, and their fearless family-based posse are chronicled in a one-hour "Best of" special, featuring superlative memorable moments, dangerous hunts and take-downs from more than 250 arrests over the past seven seasons.
In the 200th episode at 9PM ET/PT, this hunt is personal. It is family tradition that each Chapman gets to take down a fugitive on their birthday. This time, it's Baby Lyssa's turn and it's Dog's good friend and fellow bondsman Chris who is running out of time. He has only days to find his fugitive running from a $20,000 bond or risk losing his business. In this hunt Dog confronts duplicitous tipsters, vicious attack dogs, and hostile neighbors. But when the clock strikes midnight a new lead comes in. Will this informant prove anymore reliable than the rest?
