“Amateur hour is over! Get me Hounddog McBrag!”

Hounddog McBrag is the ninth episode of the fifteenth season of Ninjago and the 189th episode overall. It aired on May 20, 2022 on LEGO's YouTube channel.

Synopsis

Dareth and Nya - she in the form of Samurai X - help the Ninja escape Kryptarium Prison with another prisoner called Fugi-Dove, who tags along. The Mayor calls in Marshal Hounddog McBrag to track the Ninjas - when Dareth's van breaks down in the desert, the Ninjas split up to avoid capture with a plan to meet up at Twitchy's gas station.[2]

LEGO's YouTube channel: While riding in a prison bus, the Ninja run into some familiar faces as Nya uses the new Samurai X Mech and Dareth acts as a decoy to help the Ninja escape. Angered that the Ninja have escaped from prison, Mayor Trustable turns to the famous Marshal Hounddog McBrag to find the Ninja!

Will the Ninja be able to escape? Or will Hounddog McBrag throw them back into Kryptarium Prison?[3]

Plot

The ninja are awoken by a guard to assign them to work detail, where they're put on a bus, alongside Mezmo and Fugi-Dove, the latter asking Jay his reason for being in prison as well as their 'rivalry.' Once the guard gave them some ground rules about the work detail, which is picking up trash along the highway before taking off. However, on the way, they encounter an old man, which is actually Dareth in disguise, trying to fix his van. With the driver and guard distracted, Nya shows up in her new Samurai X MECH to break the Ninja out. Once they hide behind a rock, Nya signals Dareth to pick them up, which he does so, while turning the vehicle onto its back exit to prevent the other inmates from escaping before taking off.

In his office while playing golf, Dwayne informs Mayor Trustable of the escape, who then calls the Police Commissioner. Learning the Commissioner cannot comply with the order to pursue and arrest the Ninja, due to jurisdiction, Trustable sends his phone into his fish tank, and orders Dwayne to bring in Hounddog McBrag.

While still in the getaway vehicle, Dareth took off his disguise and told them his strategy was breaking them out. He then told them there is a change of clothes in the back, which Fugi-Dove had somehow smuggled himself into. As they continue along, a police car started to pursue him, and Dareth goes off road, managing to drive over a rock, which the police car rolls on before the van returns to the road, only to face engine troubles. Unable to fix it, due to a blown piston, they, after changing out of their prison uniforms, along with Fugi-Dove, start moving on foot, completely sweaty and dehydrated from the vast heat. Lloyd then remembers Twitchy Tim's gas station, which Zane tells him is over 5 miles away, and they make their way to it.

Back at the bus, three trucks arrive at the scene, and Hounddog McBrag exits it to give a speech to the officers about the Ninja's escape before ordering them to find them. At night, the Ninja, Dareth and Fugi-Dove hide behind a rock as a helicopter passed by over them before Lloyd makes a plan to split up in order to reach the station with Kai, Zane and Dareth in one group, and Cole, Jay, Fugi-Dove (who wants to 'lecture' Jay more), and Lloyd in another before taking off, with Fugi-Dove cooing, leaving Jay completely miffed.
