By far the best episode!
26 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This story is a flashback of Clay remembering just after his brothers were shot and he was left for dead. He remembers how a retired judge- turned rancher found him and nursed him back to health. The judge encouraged Clay to turn to law instead of depending on his guns. The judge's retirement was explained like this: he hung his own son after his son committed murder.

But the judge had twin sons, and the second half of the episode focuses on this.

This episode was very well made. The story of the judge and Clay's relationship was heart-warming and heart-wrenching at the same time. The twin brother's role in the story is just as heart-wrenching. The end result was expected. The story wraps up with an explanation of how Clay got the black saddle bags and the black saddle.

Like I said, this was by far the best episode.
