Corrupt political boss murders the rebel father of 2 young men. The older brother faces difficult choices: swallow his pride to keep up the hardscrabble Appalachian farm & care for his developmentally disabled brother, or risk a quick death seeking retribution. When the older brother quietly leaves town to attend school, the arrogant boss is confident he's in the clear - no school offers a major in revenge, right?. Written by David Stevens

My favorite AHP episode!
25 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first time I saw this, I was totally engrossed, trying to see where this one was gonna go. Peter Fonda reminded me so much of his dad, Henry. He was so damned cool, ice wouldn't have melted in his mouth! He was the ultimate smooth criminal, kinda like Norman Bates after being arrested: he wouldn't hurt a fly! This is such a good episode, funny in places, creepy, just all around excellent. The accents, the supporting cast, the whole storyline had me from the opening. I've seen it enough times now, to use some lines of dialogue in everyday convo -- "There ain't a scratch on 'im" -- complete with big cheesy grin!! "Don't fergit my name: Verge Liiiii-kens, Verge Liiiiii-kens."
