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
You blame this town for putting me up here. You blame them for all that's happened. Maybe I did too. I blamed this town and a hundred just like it for every mistake I made. But we're both wrong, son. I put myself up here. I'm guilty. I'm guilty. Lon, do you understand me? Men change, and I'm no exception. Your life is up ahead. It can be a full life if you make it one. Do it, boy. Do it! Don't make the mistakes I made! I don't want you to change. Because... I love you, son.

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.
