A gang of thieves has moved into the Dodge area with the purpose of robbing the bank in town. They are willing to pay Marshal Dillon $1000 if he just gets out-of-town for a few days until the job is done. As we all know Matt refuses to leave so the thieves now place a demand for him to leave or a person from Dodge will die each day.
Sure enough for the next two days someone around town is killed forcing Matt to rethink his approach to the situation. Matt knows that someone in town must be giving the outlaws information since they know that Matt is still around town.
Thinking he knows who the fifth member of the outlaw team may be- he sets a trap to catch the crooks. But will the trap be good enough to catch the outlaws or will other members of Dodge have to die.
The story was not really that bad but some of the acting was suspicious. There were two guest women in this episode that seemed almost frighten to say their lines. One of the ladies in the show had a hair-do more worthy of 1960 than 1860. When I notice these things it has to be very obvious to others.
