A few days before the footage is shot, Holden’s friend spotted a massive bubble trail and filmed it on his smartphone. These bubbles are a clear indicator that a huge gator lies beneath the murky swamp water, and the Landrys are pumped!
Chase has nicknamed this behemoth “Big Boy McCoy” as he and Holden plan an attack.
Will Chase show the King of the Swamp, aka his dad Troy Landry, that he’s got the stuff to haul in a record-breaking gator?
This episode may also see patriarch of the Edgar clan, Daniel, finally ease up on his “green” son Dwaine, who has just about had it with dear old dad’s critique of his gator-hunting style. Hopefully son Joey’s counsel last week sunk in that noggin of his.
The Edgar clan are always fun to watch too.
On a side-note, fans of the show can breathe easy that Ron Methvin’s sweet and silly Gunner the inquisitive chocolate lab will NOT be making an appearance this week — after nearly becoming gator lunch.
Watch for our recap Thursday night after the show airs!
Swamp People airs Thursdays at 9/8c on History.
