Storyline

En route to the town of Stillwater, Clay finds that one of his friends, an ex-gunfighter, has been lynched by four local men.

He discovers that the townsmen know who did it and also found that they had hanged an innocent man and are covering it up. Clay sets out to find the men who lynched his friend and bring them to justice, one way or another. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

A Woman's Perspective

This episode opens with a man gagged and bound. He looks around at four men as they stand behind him. Then suddenly, the air is filled with smoke from their guns as they shoot him dead.

The next day, Clay is riding to Stillwater when a boy approaches him and tells him that he found a dead man. The dead man is Frank Martin, Clay's friend who was to be married. When Clay talks to his friend's fiancée, he learns that his friend was innocent of robbery and murder.

The remainder of the episode is about Clay trying to find the four men who killed his friend. He didn't want to kill them - just to hold them accountable for what they had done. The episode is a classic example of the damage a group of men can do when there is no law in a town. The ending is bleak and dark. There is no hope. But sometimes that's the way it goes.

In the end, a total of four men are dead, and two injured.
