Justice is literally served!
27 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While watching this episode was not sure where the story was going. Thought it was going to be another Matt shoot-em-up at the end and cleaning up the story. Instead we are treated to a special kind of justice one you can really sink your teeth into.

It starts rather sadly when a woodcarver named Will Trimble is harassed by the Ginnis family clan. The Ginnis's are composed of Pa and four brothers each just as wild as the other. When one of the Ginnis brothers breaks his leg they go to Doc Adams place where they have to wait about 30 seconds while Doc finishes with a splinter for Will Trimble. That is why the Ginnis clan picked on Trimble- they had to wait.

When one of the Ginnis boys steps on Trimble hand in cause a wound that gets infected to the point of having to remove the hand. The woodcarver can no longer work so his plan is to leave Dodge. Trimble goes and gets supplies but before leaving the clerk gives him a few jars of the widow Burns' special pork sausage.

On the trail, Trimble and his dog stop after a wheel comes off the wagon. Since they only have the sausages to eat they share them. Later one of the Ginnis brother comes by and Trimble gives him a few sausages.

That evening the Ginnis son dies. They ride out to where Trimble was located and find his dog dead and Trimble in an awful way. Trimble asks for help but they fear he has some disease and just beats him to death and take his supplies.

Quint finds Trimble's body and gets Matt. They ride out to where the Ginnis' are located knowing they are the ones that killed Trimble. However, there is no way Matt can arrest them. There just isn't enough evidence to arrest. Matt and Quint ride off thinking justice will not be served. But what goes around comes around.

Excellent story. A wonderful episode that truly is a nice piece of writing. Denver Pyle and Strother Martin and excellent cast as the leads in this exciting episode. A great watch that will have you ginning at the end.
