A very good episode that is worth a watch.
22 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Joe Stark rides up on an old man and steals his pet chicken. Later while the chicken is cooking a man named Billy Hargis rides up and is invited to eat. Later that night Joe tries to steal Billy's horse. Billy beats Joe up leaving him four teeth less. Stark yells out killer as Billy rides off.

In Dodge Billy Hargis comes into the Lone Branch. A man is roughing on a saloon girl named Cara Miles. Billy steps in saves Cara from the cowboy and they become smitten on each other to the point of getting engaged to marry.

When Joe Stark sees Billy in town he starts a rumor that he is a gunman that killed the notorious Bo Carter. He knows this will cause people from around the area to see if they can out-draw the man that killed Bo Carter. And sure enough the first to want to face off with Billy will be Dan Flack. But Dan will have to get Billy riled up, by roughing up Cara, to finally get him to want a gunfight. And it will come down to just one man standing. That is before Bo Carter makes an appearance in Dodge.

A very good script with some fine acting. The show is entertaining and interesting. This is one of the shows that you will remember long after watching. A truly good episode worth a watch.
