Bruce Dern, best known for playing the villain, does not disappoint.

The story opens up with Judd Print (Bruce Dern) and his two sons, the oldest Verlyn and the youngest Coy which are camping with a family that is lead by Wade Bonney, with a wife that is gravely ill, and their twelve year old son Homer.

After the wife succumbs to her fever, Judd shoots Wade in the back in order to get their belongs. The two young boys, Coy and Homer are out playing but Homer witnesses the killing of his father and then hides. the next day, thinking that Homer has died of exposure, they set off for Colorado. Homer comes back to their wagon and finds a gun that his father had hidden and then the twelve year old sets out to find and kill Judd Print.

Along the trail, Homer runs into Doc Adams and holds him at gunpoint. When Doc starts asking questions Homer shoots at Doc, missing him, and the gun flies out of his hands. Doc grabs the fainting boy and takes him back to Dodge for treatment.

Meanwhile a wheel has run off the Print's wagon and Judd and one of his sons go into Dodge for help. All the time Homer has not told a soul why he was carrying the gun. When he sees Judd, he goes gets his gun out of Doc's office for the reason of killing Judd. He does not know that Doc has removed the bullets.

After what seemed like a slow start, this episode picked up the pace and became a worthy show. Bruce Dern is excellent in a part that makes the most of his acting ability. He truly is mean in this episode and it comes across the screen so well. A nicely done story that was well acted by all.
