Starts out slow but ends with a bang. One of the better shows
Even though this episode started out slow, by the middle of the show it was in full stride as it made its way to being one of the better shows of the series.
When brothers Otis and CV Fletcher confront a man that is seeing their sister things go terribly wrong. Otis and CV accidentally kills the man and then make a quick exit back to the farm.
The town drunk, Louie Pheeters (James Nusser), happens to be in the area and stumbles up on the man. When Festus arrives the last words the man says is 'Louie'. Louie cannot remember what happened and reluctantly is placed in jail. During the trial, Louie even says that in his drunken state that he might have killed the man.
Louie is sentenced to five years and awaits for the prison wagon to pick him up. Festus gambles his job as he lets Louie out of jail for one last time. Will the Fletcher boys speak up before Louie is sent off or will they remain quiet as Louie goes to prison for a crime he did not commit.
A very interesting and entertaining show. John Anderson , that plays the Fletcher's father, gives one of his best performances. James Nusser is again brilliant that makes the viewer feel every aspect of the script. One of the better shows in the series. GREAT WATCH
