After hearing his friend is about to be hung for murder, Jason rides into town in time to see the hanging and realizes he must try to heal the severed bond between a father and son before it's too late. But the father doesn't want anything to do with his son, causing pent up anger that may just turn the son to the wrong side of the law unless Jason can stop it. Written by
What about him, Frank? What about your son? Oh, he'll stay with you. And he'll run with you. But why, Frank? Because he loves you? No, because he loves a memory. The memory of a father he had for ten years before you left him in that orphanage. Yes, he'll stay with you, Frank. And if you're caught, he'll stand with you on another scaffold in another place and he'll die with you. Why Frank? Don't you want a chance to prove to him that you've changed? Talk to him, Frank. Talk to him now.

Ohmygosh, that was such an emotional ending!!! I couldn't imagine any other ending would do. The breaks was that this man WAS going to die. His son was hanging on to the edge of the law and something had to be done. Though he wasn't much a father after the war, Frank took back his right to teach his son right from wrong and did it in a POWERFUL way!!! It brought tears to my eyes and made my heart beat faster, and my demise was when Nan hugged that boy for the ten-year old child he suddenly became in that instance. She laid his head on her breast and allowed him to weep...
This was a VERY good episode and it deserved much higher than a ten in my opinion!!! I DID notice that "the coward of Bitter Creek" didn't enter into this story, but there really wasn't opportunity to do so.
