When Andy Meade rides into town, Ed Tibbett meets him on the street for a gunfight. Though it didn't appear there were any actual witnesses to the gunfight, Clay Culhane comes on the scene just moments later to save Meade from the two remaining Tibbett brothers and suggests Meade gives himself up for trial. Meade disagrees until Marshall Scott comes in, then willingly gives himself up. Unfortunately, the Tibbett brothers are still in town and want revenge... Written by Michelle P.

Clay Culhane: What about Andy Meade?
Fred Bryson: I don't owe him anything!
Clay Culhane: Oh, yes you do! You know what your trouble is Bryson? You figure you got something coming for nothin'.

It was a blood bath
4 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A young man rides into town, and immediately there's a killing. Being a lawyer, Clay assures the man he has nothing to worry about if he is innocent, but due to the brothers throwing their weight around, it soon becomes evident that a simple eye-witness isn't going to be enough to get this man off.

There is a moral lesson at the end of this episode that's good for us, even today. We like to lay the blame on others when things go wrong, but sometimes we are as much to blame ourselves! The woman, Helen Bryson, in this episode knows how to put her husband in his spot. She's not afraid to speak her mind.

This is a pretty violent episode. In the end, there are four dead.
