The title gave this episode away.
17 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Other than the final scene this episode just did not have the power that some of the previous shows have produced. There was really nothing wrong in the story it was just the story was plain and the ending, thanks to the title of the episode, was just too predictable.

Joe Digger is nearly lynched by two men out on the prairie but survives thanks to being cut down after the men road off. Well he makes it to Dodge where Matt finds out the details and tells Joe to let him handle the situation. Joe tells Matt he has till midnight to bring the two men to justice or he will kill them.

From the title of the episode and the fact the same phrase is said a couple of times in the first few minutes of the show, there really was little suspense in this program. The story was nice but it was like seeing a rerun when watching for the first time.
