Although the bad weather means that she might not have many customers to cook for, Maggie sends Ben out to do some chores. After Ben leaves, Del comes in, and begins to act strangely. When Ben returns with a load of firewood, Del suddenly draws a gun on him. Ben then goes into town, while Maggie fixes a meal for Del. Soon afterward, when Red comes in, both men prepare to draw their guns. They tell Maggie about a bitter argument during a poker game the night before, and tell her to get out of the way while they settle things. Maggie begins desperately to try to stop them from shooting at each other. Written by Snow Leopard

I Couldn't Take Any Of It Seriously
16 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This one stood out to me as being more goofy than anything. I guess it can't be called unintentionally funny, as several other reviewers here seem to think that that was exactly the goal, but it still seems to me like there was supposed to be an underlying tension, a risk that something seriously awful could result from the conflict here, that was completely undercut by the way the story was executed.

It amounts to two gunfighters having a staring contest. They refuse to take their eyes off of each other and maintain a barrage of taunts that only heighten the silliness. They are seated at a little table covered by a checkered tablecloth; they stab blindly at the food before them and overturn cups of coffee. Grandma Walton keeps running in and out of frame trying to distract them with different things. It felt like an SNL skitch. There's even a comically over-sized prop that plays a crucial part in the "twist ending". This was all MEANT to be funny, right?

Hitch's epilogue, a much-needed acerbic twist upon the twist, was the part of this episode that I enjoyed the most.
