Storyline

Frank Vardon, a disgruntled teller at the Latigo Bank, gets together with his friend Roy Corey and plans a fake hold-up of the bank, in which Roy will be the bank robber and Frank will hand over all the money. At the last minute, however, Frank backs out, and when Roy insists on going through with the plan, Frank pulls out a gun and fires at him. Wounded, Roy stumbles outside where he sees Clay and shoots at him, forcing Clay to fire back. As he lay dying, Roy exposes his and Frank's scheme. Marshal Scott arrests Frank, but Clay decides to defend him. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Lots of killing!
22 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode, a banker is propositioned by an bank robber to help him rob the bank. They would split the money and live on it for quite some time. The idea appealed to the bank robber, knowing he'd financially be better off. However when it was time to pull the job, he decided against it. The banker had been really nice to him. The bank robber still wanted the money and was killed in the process. When he was finally found free, the banker still had his job. Butt...

There are three outlaws in town and they have the same idea. But there was another man (played by John Anderson) who was unhappy with the bank. The three outlaws saw a possibility to rob the bank and get the old, dissatisfied man to be arrested for it.

The episode had a couple unexpected twists to the story. This may be one of the bloodiest episodes yet. In all, five men were killed and one injured.
