James Whitmore is terrific playing two types of characters in one person
18 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

James Whitmore does a terrific job of playing Handy Random who happens to be the one who shot and killed the person that killed Tom Barkley. So Handy is a good friend of the Barkleys. But when Handy is introduced to Heath it appears that Heath knows more about Handy than anyone else.

During this time the Barkleys are in a land problem with a neighboring Craddock family. This is when the true identity of Handy Random will come to light. Turns out that Heath knows that Handy is a mercenary killer that will side with either side that pays the most amount of money. And it is going to get nasty when Handy will volunteer his service to either of the disputed land owners. Either the Barkleys or Craddocks.

With some good acting this episode held the interest of viewers the entire span of the show. Whitmore was good as playing the mild old friend that can turn into a killer at a moments notice. Nice watch.
