Quotes

Marshal Matt Dillon: Well, if you're not friends of the Peavys, where are you heading? Theirs is the only place this road leads to.
Jack Cade: A man can ride where he pleases, can't he?
Marshal Matt Dillon: Well, I guess he can. Unless he's carrying a rifle and his wife is too, and they're heading for somebody's place that they don't particularly like.

Never seen a feud go from Hot to Cold so quick.
30 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When Matt and Chester are in the hills hunting for deer, someone take a shot a Matt. When Matt starts investigating the incident he comes upon a shack that is occupied by Alben and Liza Peavey. Little does Marshal Dillon know he has just happened upon a rural feud between two families that will place him right into the middle of the situation.

It seems that the Peavey's are in a feud with the Cade's over a situation that happened some time ago. Even though the War Department did not teach US Marshal's how to mediate family disputes, Matt will do his best to bring this conflict to an end.

The ending to this episode is really outlandish. Two families are ready to kill each other at a drop of a hat but after some words from Matt Dillon they are ready for a community cookout? It did not make sense. The ending was too packaged with that made for TV feeling. Gunsmoke prides itself on an adult drama, this turned out to be an ending made for a fairytale.
