A cousin is after Festus's hangy-down ear part.

Some of the 'Gunsmoke' purest will find the episode against all things
that the series stands. But for me it was a nice hour of entertainment
that was as good as any on TV today.
Eliab Haggen, cousin of Festus, makes his way to Dodge City for the
task of revenging his father's fate. Seems that Festus shot off some of
Eiiab's fathers ear and now he is here to shoot off some of Festus's
ear. Not the entire ear but the hangy-down part of the ear.
Well when Festus gets wind of Eliab's visit, it will be a long drawn
out affair to avoid getting his lower ear shot off. In the meantime,
there will be poker hands and upset feelings as someone gets killed and
the suspect is Eliab. Festus can finally feel good that his cousin is
in jail-- or can he?
This was a change from the usual episode plot. A funny look into the
Haggen clan that was entertaining from beginning to end. I sometimes
judge a episode by how you anticipate the next scene-- in this episode
if was a thrill waiting to see what comes next. An enjoyable show.
