On a stormy night, a shadowy man robs Jonas's store and kills the clerk. Before he dies, the clerk utters the last name of two brothers in the area. Matt figures one of the two must be guilty. Nate sure looks guilty with his wet clothes, while brother Frank's got a good alibi. Trouble is their ma (Tuttle) is a prairie-hardened woman who insists the family, not the law, punishes its own. So what's Matt to do.
Good episode, with well-worked out storyline from writer Meston. Solid acting from familiar faces in supporting roles. A story like this depends greatly on quality performances, but I especially like non-familiar face of Jan Harrison as Polly, the bar girl, who manages the kind of thoughtful ending the series was noted for.
