Storyline

Dr. Mike, Sully and Matthew join forces with a legendary marshal to track down the outlaws who wounded Matthew during a bank robbery. Legend says that Marshal Elias Burch has killed more than 100 men. So, when the robbery of Preston's bank causes the townspeople to question whether or not Matthew can really carry out the responsibilities of being sheriff since he doesn't wear a gun, Matthew is determined to learn from Burch and prove he can kill outlaws as well as any other peace officer can. As Dr. Mike and Sully try to stop the bloodshed, Preston and Hank also stalk the robbers, with Hank envisioning the reward money going toward the new hotel. Meanwhile, widowed school teacher Teresa Morales struggles to maintain repairs on her ranch but is too proud to accept Jake's offer of help -- until Brian steps in.

Good outing for the red-headed stranger....
20 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Willie Nelson's film career has been memorable , because ultimately he always plays himself. Much like John Wayne, he is comfortable in his own skin(on & off the screen). This appearance on Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman is no exception.

Willie is believable and at ease in the role of the legendary lawman. He plays the part honestly, warts & all. This TV show was always best when they brought in special guest stars. The writing was thoughtfully done and Jane Seymour has good chemistry with Nelson.

Along with the earlier appearance of Johnny Cash on the show , this episode represents one of the best of the entire series.
