Jon And Ponch's Anniversary As Partners
5 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In Moonlight,Jon and Ponch investigate reports of toxic waste being dumped. Some guys are dumping toxic waste and one of them speeds off to keep them away from the dumping. One of them ends up causing a major accident. Then,they visit some old friends gathering information on who may have dumped the chemicals. When they return to the dump site, they end up chasing the dumper. Jon gives up the chase when chemicals burn a hole in Ponch's tire, causing him to fall off.

Later out on the streets, they finally manage to stop the dumpers. It turns out, the chemical dumper was in debt so he used his boss, Charley's, car while dumping. Robbie tells Jon and Ponch that there's another dumping run in progress. Charley and Gil get in a fight and the truck goes off the road and starts to burn. To prevent the explosion from sending up a cloud of poison gas, Jon and Ponch send the cab down the hill away from the trailer.

Also,in this episode,the other CHP officers try to get the Sarge in on a celebration of Ponch and Jon's fourth anniversary as partners.It is rather unfortunate that this will be their last season together after Larry Wilcox will leave the show after the 5th season together with some of the supporting actors/actresses such as Randi Oakes and Brodie Greer.
