Autry's Last Chance

The boys of Big Dog race to find oil before the lease on Peggy’s land expires. After their first hole turned up dry and the second produced just enough oil to keep Autry in the black, the boys of Rig 28 are getting one more chance. Autry is racing to save his star rig and hoping his wildcat gamble doesn't cost the roughnecks their job. As the time remaining on the lease ticks down, Peggy isn't cutting them any slack. After months of warning the roughnecks about respecting her land, Peggy is pushed to her breaking point and aims her sights squarely on the roughnecks. Shooting a gun on location is one of Big Dogs strictest rules - but Peggy makes her own rules and decides it’s time for justice, Texas style. As the dust settles from Peggy's gun, the boys of big dog are dealt another blow. After a year of constant struggling to fit in, Cheston decides to call it quits. Having recently knocked out one of the toughest men in the oil field, Cheston has done everything he can to prove he belongs on Rig 28. But for Cheston, coming to terms with his destiny means a life away from the oil field. Cheston's exit from Big Dog won’t be an easy transition. Leaving the rig is like leaving a gang - it doesn't come easy. After he discovers Cheston’s wind turbine dreams, Brandon isn't too happy and decides it’s time for a heart to heart with Cheston. Having recently gone to school for wind energy production, Cheston has big dreams of striking it rich in green energy. But there's only one problem: in order to finish school, he needs money. Having just quit the rig, Cheston turns to his former mentor, veteran driller Gerald Williams for work. After being banned from Big Dog, Gerald has broken out on his own. The last time Gerald and Cheston worked together sparks flew and this time won’t be any different—even though times change, drilling never stops and neither does the drama.

Three Days to Save Big Dog

With the lease on Peggy's land set to expire in just three days, the roughnecks of Rig 28 have their backs against the wall. They need to drill this well in time or they'll all be out of a job. And for Big Dog's top dog, Autry, if this wildcatting venture on untested land doesn't pay off, the Big Dog empire could go under. With the clock ticking, tool pusher Freddy’s pushing his men to the edge. But no matter how hard he pushes, there's one hand standing in the way of Rig 28's success: Geordan. Geordan's a slacker, and since he's the grandson of Freddy's biggest rival, Jerry, Geordan's also a protected man. But when Geordan almost cuts a fellow hand's hand off, it's all the ammo Freddy needs to go gunning for him. And the drama in west Texas doesn't stop at the rig.
