Even though this is the fourth episode, Clay is just getting around to putting up his sign and certificate. Marshal Scott can't resist giving Clay a hard time about it.

Meanwhile, we have yet another family feud where the result is death but the "who done it" is a bit difficult to tell. Though the story has been done many times and you pretty much know who turns out to be the bad guy, it's still an interesting twist and shows just how stupid and impatient human nature can be.

In the end, Clay of course gets his man but this time he was unsuccessful in the courtroom.
