Swaggering stranger Tabor comes to Dodge to get his sixgun repaired. While waiting, he manages to offend about everybody at the Long Banch. Then old friend of Matt's, Esteban, arrives looking for Tabor to settle a score with him. Matt has to tell his old friend that if he does, Matt will have to arrest him. Now Matt and Esteban are at odds, so how will it play out.

Odd episode. To me, the screenplay is unusually disjointed, certainly not up to the series usual quality. For some reason, Tabor drops completely out halfway through, as though actor Russell suddenly got sick or something; switching main characters in the middle was certainly not a series norm. Moreover, events at the farmhouse are full of holes in exposition that tend to add some confusion to the subpar script. Good thing that Dobkin brings off the role of Esteban in such sympathetic fashion, which helps redeem a generally substandard entry.
