Quint is again accused of a crime because he is a half-breed, 11 December 2012
Author: kfo9494 from United States

Marshal Dillon is taking Ben Crown back to Dodge to stand trial for murder. They comes across Quint who happens to be out hunting. The three start riding back to Dodge when they come across a house where a woman is trying to dig a grave. Willa Devlin is a bitter woman who is burying her fourth member of her family. She is now the only person left in her entire family. When she faints Matt, Quint and even Crown help her out by digging the grave and cooking her something to eat. During this time Willa takes a shine to Quint but wants to remain on the farm where her family is in the ground.

A few days later Quint rides back out to Willa and deliveries a deer and other food to her. But Willa takes this as something like a courting and when Quint rejects her advances, Willa takes this personally and becomes even more bitter.

When Marshal Dillon receives a letter saying that Ben Crown is not guilty, he is released from jail. After being released he rides out to Willa's house and assaults her. When some neighbors bring her in to Dodge she advises that Quint was the one that assaulted her. This causes problem for Quint as some of the citizens are again upset with a half-breed running loose in the streets.

Willa then tells the Marshal that all she was wanting to do was have Quint talk with her for just a few minutes. Then she confesses that it was actually Ben Crown that assaulted her. But will the Marshal be able to find Crown before more damage is done to Quint.

Overall this is not a bad script it just seemed to carry the same theme in season eight again and again. Quint's character has gone through about every Indian hatred that can possible be written. It would be nice to see Quint in an episode other than being accused of some evil crime. But I guess in 1963 these show were popular- they had to be. And for a show that was so long on detail, when the ending came there was little fanfare to the conclusion. Not one of the better shows.
