Storyline

George Baker, a rancher who is a respected pillar of the community, turns out to have been a wanted man before he settled down in Latigo, as the town discovers when a bounty hunter shoots him for the reward. Marshal Scott arrests him, but George's wife, wanting revenge, sends for George's brother, a vicious outlaw who heads a gang of killers. Gib tries to raise a posse to defend the bounty hunter from the approaching gang, but no one in town wants to risk his life for the man who killed their friend. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Great episode
3 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

George and Grace Baker were expecting their first baby and were in town for a checkup, but before they could get in the door Chet Mailet (played by Patty Duke's William Schallert) gunned him down. But he had no charges against him, at least as far as the marshal was concerned, because he shot a wanted man. But this story is far from over. Contrary to George Baker's, a.k.a. Ansel King, request that she not take revenge, his widow called Ansel's brother. Now there really was trouble.

My favorite part is the end. Chet's killing caused a lot of grief and a lot of problems. People do a lot in the name of money that usually lead to more trouble down the road. In the end, Chet expected everyone to understand. In truth, his killing caused innocent people to die and ended tragically for himself. Yep. Like many of us, he had to learn about greed the hard way...

There are a couple moral issues in this episode. Tragically, when all was aid and done, five people were killed and two were arrested.
