A bounty hunter claims his' Pappy was a gambling man'.
4 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A bounty hunter named Anderson rides into Dodge with the news that he knows where one of the most wanted man in Kansas is located. He tells Matt that the wanted man, Gabe Sturney, is outside Dodge with his partner. He would like Matt to tag along so that him and his partner can take Sturney into custody and get the $5000.

Matt and Anderson stop for the evening at a stagecoach rest area run by Owney Dales and his daughter Helena. It just so happens that Helena is seeing Sturney's brother Billy and runs off to tell him. Billy and a few friends shoot into the rest area trying to kill Anderson and Matt. But Matt and Anderson get the upper hand and end up killing two of the men, including Billy, and then continue the trek to where Sturney and Anderson's partner are located. Helena is heart broken.

When Anderson takes Matt to the location where the outlaw is located, Matt finds out that Sturney and Anderson's partner are located in an ice house and both are dead. Anderson tells Matt that Sturney killed his partner and then he had to kill Sturney. Anderson made Matt all the way to the outback location to identify a body and Matt is none to happy. But Matt is required by the law to give Anderson the money.

When Anderson writes a detailed description of what happened at the killing of Sturney, things do not set right with the Marshal. Matt believes that Anderson is not telling the correct details of the killing. Matt is bound to find out the truth when he starts looking into the actions of that night.

Other than the guest cast there really is not much remarkable about this episode. It was a nice story but the part at the rest stop seemed a little more like filler than part of the story. Anyway, it was a nice watch and we got to see some nice acting.
