Okay, I must admit that I liked this episode a lot. It had a good message, good characters, and a good ending, BUT it was a bit TOO similar to a Rifleman episode. Those of you who watch The Rifleman may know which one I'm talking about. During the third season, Lucas comes face to face with the son of the first man he killed in the Civil War. He had lunged at him and killed him with his sword as well. If that's not similar enough, what about this: later in the episode, he goes to confess the truth to the wife of the deceased. The son threatens to kill him (though it has nothing to do with his killing his father).
But I really do like some line in this episode. "The first kill is the hardest." Then later Jason talks about having to live with that fact for the rest of your life...
And in the end...well, I guess you'll have to watch the episode and judge for yourself, but I for one found this sort of ending better than the other ways it could have ended.
