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

A Young Darren McGavin
7 March 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A cook tries everything she can think of to end a dispute between two gunmen who have sworn to kill each other.

I appreciate this episode for the young Darren McGavin, who looks remarkably different than he did in the 1970s. I understand 20 years will do that to a guy, but it makes me wonder what he was doing for most of that time. Was he a big name before "Kolchak"? I am not aware of it, but then I wasn't really alive at the time.

After the first two episodes, this one is a bit of a disappointment. Not great, not terrible, just a very simple story. Maybe if I was a bigger fan of westerns I would like it more, but it just seemed like it could have used a little something more.
